How did the Bible come to be?  Canon vs. Cannon-fodder

     You have now learned enough from the last eighty-nine blogs in this series that you could teach a class at most any seminary and even the "Professors" would learn things they did not know.

     To summarize:  The words of God have always been available and devilish “scholarship” was always there to corrupt or at least obfuscate God's truth.

 More than 2000 manuscripts and books competed for canonicity, but the same books we now have were accepted as the canon more than 1650 years ago.

     Authenticity of the books in our canon has been established by Apostolic origin, Apostolic referral and internal evidence, as the Lord Jesus Christ's canonical statement:

Luke 24:44  And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me.

     The sampling of books not included in the canon, both the ridiculous and the sublime, which you were able to read on this page, were rejected because of their content. You have seen many such examples for yourself.

     There has always been debate and there will always be debate, and that is a good thing.  When the statement is made: "The 1769 King James Bible is God's perfectly preserved words without even one error" what you have heard is "Here's the needle."  There have always been defenders of the haystack because there is position and power in Protestant popery.  The benefit of the debate is that it allows you to know who is a Bible-believer and who isn't.

     Consider how devilishly odd it is that defenders of God's words being perfect in one book are stigmatized by the infidels who not only don't believe any Bible is perfect, they have nothing perfect to offer.

     1 Corinthians 14:8  For if the trumpet give an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself to the battle?

Hi Pasor and Carol,

I remember that you did a few studies called “Parables Dispensationally Under-stood” some time ago. Are these available for download? I would suggest that you consider teaching again a series on dispensational understanding of the parables as a future topic. Thank you for your hard work and dedication to keep pressing on!

Thank you Ma’am: you have a good memory and yours is a good suggestion. Those old messages are not on this new website and I like the idea of teaching them again because I recall that they were real eye-openers for quite a few people.

1 Timothy 3:16  And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.

Ephesians 3:9  And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery

Today's McNuggett: Take the time to learn what God did for you when He completed you in Christ Jesus... and then be who God made you: Romans 6:4 Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.

  It shall greatly help ye to understand the Scriptures if thou mark not only what is written, but of whom, with what words, at what time, where, to what intent, with what circumstances, considering what goeth before and what followeth after. Coverdale
