I can see this is the same dilemma that Catholics have to live with too.<quoted text>
Unfortunately, most stories are like you pointed out. They were engaged in reading something brilliant about scripture, once they realized it was Catholic, they threw it away. That about sums up this forum.
They see that Jesus has not been fully revealed thru the Bible, so they throw out any and all texts that are about him that are non-canonical.
Yep - Catholics are the same as the other so-called "Christians" - they too have thrown out the baby with the bathwater.
