Clay: "No Pope has added to sacred scripture. They do not have the authority to do so. No one has."

of course, Clay. So tell me so I can under stand this:
-
When the church was "compiling" the scripture ... approximately 800 years AFTER Jewish canon of scripture was closed ... did the Jews of their day come by and say, "Yo! Dudes! somehow we forgot these books - so here they are and you need to add them into the Hebrew scriptures.":
-
Tobit
Judith
1 Maccabees
2 Maccabees
Wisdom
Sirach
Baruch
-
-
I don't think so. These books were added by the Catholic Church ... with the Pope's approval.

Um .. no ... you need to check your history.
Those books are part of the Septuagint, from which Jesus Himself quoted.
.
They were considered canon by many (but perhaps not all) Jews of His day, and one could infer that Jesus recognized the authority of the sSeptuagint by quoting from it, although He did not quote those specific books.
.
But they WERE in the Septuagint.

History?
-
This is so ludicrous as to be considered truly insane, or at the very least "delusional."
-
What history? Catholic history? We know history has a way of being written by the "victors" - meaning: It is incredibly biased by those who are the aggressors. And the Catholic/Constantine Christians were indeed the AGGRESSORS. We know this from documented history.
-
Here, in as few words - and as briefly as possible (so as to not be misunderstood):
-
Jesus was a JEW.
-
AS a Jew, he went to the Jewish TEMPLE to read the Jewish books.
-
He preached the Good News to fellow JEWS.
-
He *logically* spoke to them in Hebrew.
-
He, therefore,*logically* quoted from the Hebrew text of the Jewish scriptures.
-
The Septuagint was the GREEK *translation* of the HEBREW *scriptures.* Jesus would have no reason to quote from the GREEK TRANSLATION to Jewish listeners, unless he were conducting Greek as a second language to his Jewish followers.(And though he most likely spoke Greek fluently - I don't think he had the time to teach it to his Jewish listeners along with all the other 'stuff' he had on his plate.)
-
*IF* original GREEK "writings" crept into the GREEK Septuagint, THAT DOES NOT MEAN they belong IN THE JEWISH CANON OF HEBREW SCRIPTURES.
-
So. To say Jesus quoted from the Septuagint is flat out ridiculous. And by your own admission, he NEVER quoted from the seven books that were added into the Septuagint by the Greeks and ultimately added to the Bible by the Catholic Church.
-
Therefore: Any *reasonable* person would conclude that those books ultimately DO NOT BELONG in the Sacred Jewish Scriptures.
-
Additionally: They were NEVER/EVER part of the accepted Jewish/Hebrew Scripture and are NOT part of the Jewish Bible down to this very day. God entrusted the preservation of the Hebrew scripture to the Jews. Nobody else. And nobody else has the right to add to it.
-
..especially not the Catholic church... though they try.
-
Funny. They try to add those books by saying SOMEONE ELSE DID IT FIRST!
So in essence they are following the Greeks - Go figure!
-
I hope that is simple enough to understand.

Wow, I wouldn't hold on to that belief system you've got going there! Just bc it says he had power on earth doesn't mean he lost it when he decended into heaven! Is that what your saying?

Answer the question and it will become clear to you of which I speak.
In the Scripture quoted, what is going to condemn you if you don't do it????.
Your sin.

Rom_8:34 Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.

Rom_8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

Joh 3:17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

Joh 3:18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

Joh 3:19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.

Joh 3:20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.

Joh 3:21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

I does say

Mar_8:38 Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.

Luk_9:26 For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he shall come in his own glory, and in his Father's, and of the holy angels.

Luk_12:8 Also I say unto you, Whosoever shall confess me before men, him shall the Son of man also confess before the angels of God:
