Why do biblical Christians and churches reject the Apocrypha as being inspired of God?:
1. These books existed before New Testament times, yet there is not one single quotation from the Apocrypha is in the New Testament. Jesus quoted from twenty four of the Old Testament books, and the New Testament quotes from thirty four books of the Old Testament. Introductory phrases like "it is written" or "thus says the Lord" are totally absent from the books and therefore the books themselves do not claim to be inspired of God.
The books of 1st and 2nd Maccabees have historical significance, but when they are compared to the Bible they shown to not be the inspired Word of God. Even though they have some historical value these books are clouded by the contradictions found in their text. For example, in 1st and 2nd Maccabees, Antiochus Epiphanes is made to die three different deaths in as many different places.
2. Although some of the early church fathers quoted from these writings, and even accepted them as inspired, this does not mean they were inspired. The majority of the early church writers rejected these books as being inspired. Clearly in the Second Century and afterward there were many false teachers and heretics. It is important to know that Jesus nor any of the Apostles quoted from or mention any of these books.

Why do you reject the Hindu myth of what they believe is their savior Chrishna, that existed long before Christianity.

As the Catholics claimed to have stolen the affection of the god from the Jews???

Is that a good example of quality theft?

Christians didn't claim to steal it, goofy.

Christians claimed it was given to them.

But it seems to me, they did credited the source.

Yet you are willing to believe that Catholics are destined for hell to spend eternity with the devil.

I don't believe in hell or a devil.

You believe that you support the words of a God, and I believe that you support the words of Protestant theologians.

Catholic church-fathers claimed that the love of God was given to them, BECAUSE the god that once loved the Jews, took his love AWAY from the Jews to apply it to ONLY Catholics.

That is theological-theft of the lowest, most vile type of theft.

Catholics should have created a new god, as did the Jews that went from polytheism to monotheism to create their one-god dogma.

Are you convinced that the one god removed his love from the Jews ... by-passed the Catholics and Muslims ... and placed all his love on the Protestants ... such as YOU???

"discredited" would be a better word.

Analogy:
Christianity took the Constitution of the US and claimed it is the foundation of the Communist Manifesto. Then claimed Lenin to be Emperor of USA.

If one has faith in Truth and God, it can never be shaken. Sadly, most religious people prefer a pack of lies and ignorance.

So first, according to you, they claimed to steal it.

But now, according to you, they claimed it was given to them.

You didn't take your meds this morning, did you?

And by the way, the Jews lifted their mythology freely from their neighbor's myths.

Google Gilgamesh, silly.

And you'll find Egyptian monotheism had a healthy history long before any OT text was written.

Those that defend their own cults, are certain that a god wants them to ATTACK when the dogmas of the cults are under "threat."

That attitude is what created the religious wars.

The Catholic church-fathers claimed that the god that used to love the Jews "transferred" his love away from the Jews and gave it all to the Catholics. And in turn, because they "wanted" to believe it was true ... other Catholics took it for granted that the Catholic church-fathers told the whole truth and nothing BUT the truth.

Just as you don't want to see the lies, other Catholics didn't want to see the lies ... even though the lies are in plain sight.

Common sense mythology should tell you that a god would not change his MIND in mid-stream, by claiming to love one group only, to then love another group and disown the first group of believers.

Religion is BUNK!

When lies are in plain view, your conscience should activate to in turn not only spot the lies, but ADMIT that the lies exist.

For the most part, Christians in the United States were not communists. They were and many still are anti-Semitists.

<quoted text>Tell that to your clerics and inmans that keep provoking violence. The Quran contains at least 109 verses that call Muslims to war with nonbelievers for the sake of Islamic rule. Some are quite graphic, with commands to chop off heads and fingers and kill infidels wherever they may be hiding. Muslims who do not join the fight are called 'hypocrites' and warned that Allah will send them to Hell if they do not join the slaughter.
Unlike nearly all of the Old Testament verses of violence, the verses of violence in the Quran are mostly open-ended, meaning that they are not restrained by the historical context of the surrounding text. They are part of the eternal, unchanging word of Allah, and just as relevant or subjective as anything else in the Quran.
The context of violent passages is more ambiguous than might be expected of a perfect book from a loving God, however this can work both ways. Most of today's Muslims exercise a personal choice to interpret their holy book's call to arms according to their own moral preconceptions about justifiable violence. Apologists cater to their preferences with tenuous arguments that gloss over historical fact and generally do not stand up to scrutiny. Still, it is important to note that the problem is not bad people, but bad ideology.
Unfortunately, there are very few verses of tolerance and peace to abrogate or even balance out the many that call for nonbelievers to be fought and subdued until they either accept humiliation, convert to Islam, or are killed. Muhammad's own martial legacy - and that of his companions - along with the remarkable stress on violence found in the Quran have produced a trail of blood and tears across world history.
Quran contains 6666 verse, what about "rest" 6559 verses that DO NOT talk about fighting with Non Muslims?

And do you know How many fighting verses are in your First Six books of Bible?

How come they made Jews and Christians Not a fighting race?

What sort of logic you people have?
