    Why do people not understand that the Bible does not contain all of God's word?

    Are people being purposely taught that the Bible is all containing of God's word. Do people not know the history of the Bible? The book is a collection of unrelated books put together by the catholic church--specifically the New Testament. Why do Protestants teach otherwise by saying that Revelations is the end of the Bible when the word bible means library?

    Because The Prophecies FULFILLED across History - both BC & AD - can be Verified with Pinpoint Historical Accuracy.

    ONLY God can Pre-Ordain THIS.

    Therefore, The Entire Holy Bible IS Divinely Supernatural, and 100% RELIABLE as The Infallible Word Of The Lord, for ANYONE & EVERYONE, especially Christians and Jews.

    Consequently, ALL True Believers KNOW that The Most Holy Bible DOES Contain ALL OF GOD'S WORD - Indeed.

    Lastly, there are SO MANY "imposters" on the "religious" world stage, ONE DEFINITIVE SOURCE, that is Rock Solid, then EXPOSES the "spiritual charlatans" for who they REALLY ARE when their doctrine blatantly contradicts The New Testament (particularly) and likewise contradicts key areas of The Old Testament (less specfically)...

    Therefore, there is NO OTHER NEED for any further extra-Biblical material purporting to be from God Himself - ONLY Material that Expounds on the Veracity of Existing Holy Scripture is Spiritually Beneficial for Doctrinal Matters in Salvation, Miracles, Holy Conduct, Morality, Israel History, Prophecy and Creation.

      We disagree here, and that is okay. I do not believe God's words can be contained in one library and neither did John.

      Yes Elijah, all scripture. I believe that when we accept the first scriptures, Bible, Book of Mormon ans such, he will give us more. Only 2 billion Christians associate themselves to the Bible. We have a long way to go for the 4 billion other people.

      Holy Scripture Is INFALLIBLE. 2 Nephi 26:12 claims this 545 BC "And as I spake concerning the convincing of the Jews, that Jesus is the very Christ, it must needs be that the Gentiles be convinced also that Jesus is the Christ, the Eternal God;"

      What about the countless other prophecies (i.e. the majority of the Old Testament) that were not fulfilled... If he really was the son of god shouldnt he have fulfilled every single prophecy ever?  Nostradamus has a better record than God lol!

    If you are a Mormon, it does not. "If ANY man shall add unto these words, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book." (Revelation 22:18)
    The book of proverbs states: " Add thou not into His words, lest He reprove you, and you be found a Liar." (Proverbs 30:6)

      I am Mormon and thanks for answering Flpalermo. I don't have enough room here to write the history of the Bible, but your citation only men that the OT was added to with the NT. Revelations was not the last book written either, just put last.

      Rod, mormon story claims that descendants of the tribe of Manasseh (Alma 10:3) were made priests. The Holy Bible CONFIRMS that The Levites were The Priests. mormon book has thousands of contradictions. mormon book FIRST written mid 19th Century AD †

      Correct Elijah, only the sons of Aaron and Moses before Christ were ordain after that order of the Levitical priesthood. The Nephites had the higher priesthood after the order of Melchizedek which cold also function in the office of priests.

    UNRELATED???? That's your first error and is quite grievous. The Catholic church did not put together the OT and the NT are letters which are specifically Christian in purpose. All the books have a common theme - the God of the universe who cares about people. All the books in the bible are completely related.

    Revelation is the end of the bible because it speaks about the end of time and by this book the credible eyewitnesses and closest to the time of Jesus (which leaves out mythical interpretation because historically that tale telling comes much later along the timeline.

    There is so much in the bible that any other books would just be to overwhelming as we have tough times gleaning what is already in there. Psuedepigrapha's are clearly not of the calibre that the bible, Old and New testament, are.

      Brotheryochanan thanks for answering. You are quick to say I am in error, but read my question comments. I said specifically the NT. Revelations is the end of the Bible because that was where the church of England left it for the KJV.

      Rod Mosiah 18:17 claims THIS in 147 BC "And they were called the church of God, or the church of Christ, from that time forward." Multiple entries in mormon book make claims for times AGES BEFORE Christ Was Born, of data ONLY available after JESUS.

      thanks Elijah7, God reveled these things to the people in ancient America which is why they knew so much about the coming of Christ and the true purpose of the Law of Moses

    The Bible is the inspired Word of God, meaning God-breathed. It is not merely a collection of books, and it most definitely is not a collection of unrelated books! The Bible was written by 40 or more unique authors from a variety of walks of life over a period of 15oo years and yet it remains cohesive and consistent in theme and message. It is a book about grace and salvation. That is the message, and it is beautifully and miraculously written. It has stood the test of time and holds the key to eternal life through Jesus Christ.

      You are correct and I add my own witness that the Bible is the word of God. By unrelated I mean no one wrote the New Testament with the idea that I would exist as it does today. Most of the NT is letters to the different congregations.

    The book of Revelation is the last book placement wise in the Bible.

    God's word should not contradict itself. I'm presuming here since you are Mormon that what you want to include as the word of God is the books included in the Mormon bible. There are many contradictions between the two. The contradictions are small but they are enough to change the doctrine of Christ.

    Many organizations may claim to be Christian and claim to have a book that is greater than the Bible, but instead of building their teachings from the Bible they use some new revelation or man-made teaching to explain the Bible. Through which they end up denying the basic doctrines of basic historic Christianity.

    You might want to focus on where the new teachings you are receiving are coming from. Joseph Smith claims some of his teachings from the angel Moroni.

    2 Cor. 11:14-5 says; “And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.  Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works”.
    Galatians 1:8 "But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed."

      Thank you for your answer. I have not problem with my faith and the Bible. I was converted to Christ by the Book of Mormon. I know I am a Christian. Historic Christianity is not my religion. I follow Christ not History. I look to God for answers.

      Rodric, 'history' simply references what has been recorded, a record of what happened. Christianity follows the actual real Jesus, the Jesus history evidences - Mormonism, unfortunately, follows the teaching of Joseph Smith and his disciples.

      Hi Mickey, is every comment going to be colored by my religion? You tell me what my faith follows yet I am the one that follows it. We follow Jess Christ. Jesus has written nothing for any of us to follow, but men like Joseph Smith and John have.

    I'm not sure if you're suggesting that not all that is part of the Bible is God's word or that not all of God's word is in the Bible but that some of it has been left out - at any rate, the Bible we have today was not "put together by the catholic church" if by "catholic church" you mean the Roman Catholic Church. This is a common and popular notion that simply is not an accurate accounting of the historic record. The Bible we have today is essentially the same text that the church had several centuries before there even was a Roman Catholic Church.

    (and, just for the record, Constantine had nothing to do with the Bible being "put together", neither was he Roman Catholic).

      Thanks for the answer, but I disagree and that is okay. You are free to believe that God breath the Bible. There was not Bible in the early days in the church but the Torah. The books in the NT were not assembled yet as they were being written.

      MickeySrposted 6 years agoin reply to this

      What was being written was being written for believers at that time, and those men received them as the word of God. Eventually, believers in Corinth shared their letters with those in Ephesus, etc, and what was long recognized became the Bible.

      Thanks Mickey SR for the comment. Why is it so hard for people to accept that God inspires people today just as he did back then to write scriptures I wonder?

      Actually, MickySr, you are absolutely incorrect. It is impossible for it to have existed "centuries before" the Catholic Church, but thats a whole other discussion. There were many "official" versions of the bible until as late as the 1700's. Duh.

    Because it is easier to accept that Jesus Closed the Canon in Rev 22:18-19 and that Galations 1:6-10 also Warns of future False "Gospels".

    1. Jon McPhetres profile image54
      Jon McPhetresposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      Technically the canon wasnt closed until the 1600's but people just built other collections of books or added them to the end of the bible anyways. (This is what we call 'apocrypha') Also, pictures were included until the King James Version.
