This article is correct. The Bible is not complete. Read Revelation 22:19.

Including Revelation does not support your statement. Adding more books to the original bible could be considered bible tampering.

It is obvious that "someone" removed some books from the Judeo-Christian Bible (i.e. Tobit, Second Maccabees, Enoch, etc.). For proof look at the ancient Dead Sea scrolls, Peshitta, Septuagint and Ethiopian Orthodox Bibles. Someone obviously violated Revelation 22:19 thereby erasing Lilith.

There is no more truth to Lilith than there is in any Mythology.

Jewish Mythology gives explaination of the Jewish failings, where Greek Mythology gives entertainment to the mundane existance of man in general. All Mythology is fiction, people still need fiction to be entertained, Satan the god of this world knows what people like, he is the father of the lie. John 8:44

And I can't agree with you more. BTW, Lilith entered the pantheon of Jewish mythology with the return of the Jews from exile in Babylon after those 70 years, prophesied in Daniel 9:24. The myth was of a female spirit in ancient semitic legend, alleged to hount
deserted places and attack children. According to the legend, Lilith was the first wife of Adam in Jewish folklore, believed to have been created before Eve.

Not really. Lilith is part of the Jewish tradition from what I recall. The jewish scriptures were taken and added to with the christian new testament to make a new religion. The Jewish scriptures were canonized by the Jewish rabbis. The Christian bible was canonized by the church. Same difference.

The 24 books of the Tanakh, the real Hebrew scriptures in the original language, or correct translation, consists of the 5 books of Torah, The Prophetic books, and the writings. The rabbis determined which books were prophetic and which were writings...they were THEIR books after all. Danial is not considered a prophetic book because it dealt with current events from Daniel's perspective, same with Esther. Song of Solomon made the cut, but only because Rabbi Akiva spoke up and said it was a book describing the love between G-d and His people Israel. The other books you mention didn't get canonized for various reasons, but it doesn't mean they aren't valid and valuable literature, historical or poetic writings which are cherished by the Jewish people. No one is withholding them from you.

There is no Satan devil in the Jewish scriptures. It is a mistranslation and misinterpretation by Christian theologians to create an adversary for the Jesus story. It typical of the pagan religions of the time, from which Christianity took many of its ideas and made them into doctrin over the centuries.

Satan actually comes from the Hebrew ha-satan, the evil inclination. We are equipped with two inclinations when we get here, an evil one and a good one. It's a test. There is no such thing as 'the devil made me do it'. If you did it, you made yourself do it, or you choose not to. You, not Satan.

I would like to know who was suppose to have created her, since Jehovah God only took one rib of Adam to make Eve.

It actually makes sense that the God of the Bible would have made a wife for Adam at the same time He made Adam, since He already had a wife of His own...

Pure fiction, is still fiction.

Demons are not fiction, they are very powerful spirit creatures created by themselves, by their choice of free will not to be obedient angels.

BTW they love to make and watch humans sin, it's their entertainment, the more gross the sin, the better they like it, and their influence is in the world's entertainment. Ephesians 5:3,4

rabbee: and the guy falsely accused as jesus, was actually two people being crucified. since G-D always has Adam put to death. and returned as adam and his proposed true animal mate. here in always TheTorah from TheG-D of Only TheTorah, actually always happening.

rabbee: no! TheTorah is most specific, that the subtle demons of the fields, are all made and fashioned by G-D. and are under the the physical command of G-D, just like everyone else here in TheTorah today.

I agree with you that there is no more truth to Lilith than there is in any Mythology. But this is not Jewish Mythology. The Jews who returned from exile in Babylon brough this story as a folkloric Babylonian Mythology. The interesting though, is that you speak against Mythology and introduce Satan as the true god of this world. No offense meant but you are being simply hypocritical.

How about the mythologies of Christianity? A Jew being born of God with an earthly woman is Greek Mythology and Christianity has adopted it, even to the point to worship the demigod as he was a god.

It must have been the same religion that created the Mythology of the demigod that was born of God with Mary.
