the bible has been a constantly evolving (Ha!) book since it's hazy conception (Ha again!). There has never been a full consenses as to which books were divinely inspired, if there are errors, books have been shuffled and omitted, added and 'fixed'. Found scrolls and books further confuse things. Then to top it off there are dozens of versions to choose from, all claiming to be the true word of god. Now tell me, at what point in time and history are YOU talking about? Because I'm sure that most versions of the bible contain gal 1:8-9. Besides, that is a stupid verse. It says (paraphrasing) reject even an angel that preaches gospel different than you have already accepted.\"
Okay, what if the one you've accepted is the wrong one? You aren't to learn the 'truth'? Why would an angel go to a christian and tell him something different? Doesn't it mean one of you(BOTH) is mistaken? Does god send his angels to try and preach a different gospel to his flock? That silly verse raises a hell of a lot more questions then it answers.
Of course you couldn't care less.

Then why is it absent of The Story of Adam and Eve (the seperate chronicle outside of Genesis), The Book of Enoch, or the Gospel of Mary or Judas or James or Timothy?
Because you didn't like the OT books that I mentioned because Adam's first wife was too independant and Eve was then made to be his servant. Enoch said magick and psychics and the like are God's work not Satans. And the Gnostic gospels allow for Mary of Magdela to have a divine existence, Judas to be good and the others are too \"radical\".
Well, the real reason you have 4 gospels right now is on the most trivial of levels. An early bishop said there should be a gospel for each of the 4 winds to spread the word, that is why he got rid of the Gnostics and chose the 4 most widly used that are still here today and watered down and mistranslated/interprited just as much as they were back then.

\"whatever [The Apostle's Creed] is\"?
It's hard to argue with many fundies precisely because of this point. Before you can attack their theology, you first have to explain it to them.

Redhunter: You're confusing the fundies. Nothing evolves after conception. Edit that or I'm coming after you the first time some idiot tries to use it against us. :b

"Also, any other book that is an addition to the bible is false"
Unless you are fluent in Latin, Greek and Aramaic - as are Professors of Theology, and/or long-time clergy (who have similar Theology degrees/Professorships), then any translation of the Bible beyond the original texts is in itself false.
The only book that gains something in the translation is the Complete Works of Shakespeare: in Klingon.
