Greetings;

I man wanted to ask,what is the reason the books of eden,and Enoch,an so forth,where deleted from the standard bible.

InI know that His Majesty read this books,the sheperd of Hermas also,and HIM never rejected this books,so InI know that these are books that are not inferior to the other (undeleted) ones,and maybe they are even in some case,more important to read then other scripture,for example I started to read the deleted books of Eden,and a whole new window open to I,it show InI of the GREAT mercy of JAH,and the deep relationship going on between man and God,it also reveal to InI allot of prophecy about the coming of Christ,and teach InI of the wicked nature of the serpant,the hater of all good.

so does any I know maybe,for what purpose where these books deleted and by whom they where deleted?...

Itinual Ises to the Almighty I;

Blessings Ras Nate,

The reason why some Books are included in Bible and others are excluded; is that the early church fathers debated about which texts are divinely inspired and so texts that were not considered to be divinely inspired were kept out of the Bible.

However, as the church fathers/churches did not all agree upon which texts were divinely inspired; different translations of the Bible can have different texts within them. For example the Book of Enoch is in the Orthodox Tewahedo version of the Bible, but it is not found in the Protestant version.

Here is a chart below that will show what I am saying.

Give thanks Iyah Oates for them research deh.

The question you need to be askin at the start of this thread is:

Who gave ANYBODY the right to say what is and isnt the word of God. ALL of the texts claimed to be Gods word / inspired by god. So who gave the right to a bunch of homosexual Romans and Greeks to choose the divinity of these books written 100s of years after the events?

Better to read the bible, and as many lost books as you can, and the Book of Dead, etc and make up your own mind.
