We've been over the list thing. There is no list from God saying what books He inspired, nor is there one for the scriptures you believe. I showed scripture concerning the preservation of God's Word. It seems you have requirements the scriptures must have before you'll believe them. In all honesty, if you applied those requirements to the scriptures you do believe, they wouldn't be trustworthy either.<quoted text>
"Chill!" Oh, I'm cool as an ice pop!
You missed the request again USA.
I asked for where "God" specifically states that certain texts are inspired and where others are not.
Based upon all of the passages above, you list NOT ONE SPECIFIC TEXT.
That would mean any ancient biblical text would be jsut as valid.
Why are you trying to prove something you can't?
Why can't you just accept that what men stated was a ruse for you to follow their beliefs?
Why do you follow these passages, but reject texts that include teachings by Jesus?
I do not reject any of the Gnostics or other texts concerning ALL scripture, especially Jesus' Words. I have never heard anyone say that the Gnostic texts are a false doctrine, and I don't believe they are. I believe there are a lot of men alive today that know more about the scriptures than I do. I see nothing wrong in reading their books either.
Question: What teachings of Jesus are in the Gnostics but not in the Bible?
I believe in God, not men. There is no spirit or flesh alive that can overcome God. He has given us the beginning of the world to the end in scripture. He gave us Jesus. He is the same God Jesus called Father. If you would view God as your Father, like Jesus teaches; you would begin to understand the love God has for His creation. Every man can understand the love one has for his own child.
Men have had their murky fingers all over the scriptures since their beginning. How do you know that the Gnostics are true but the Bible is not? The ruse could be the other way around.
Another question: Do you believe that there is an adversary of God and Christ?
