Boymaker - Its nice to hear from you again (outside the shoutbox). Something the Holy Spirit revealed to you about you to be more effective for Christ, even through the contention happening here (in this thread) is amazing. .
Totally agree with you, boymaker2 . I bowed out early because I recognized the situation required wiser minds than mine. I thank God for Natalie , boraddict , yardstick , mike , and Gary and everyone else who participated. This recent interaction is a true testament to the work of the Holy Spirit.
Stormy - I wanted to welcome the discussions on extra biblical books. I am not well versed in them all, but have read a few pieces here and there. For example Enoch I reads a lot like Genesis, Daniel, Revelation wrapped in one. However the rest of the book (Enoch II & III) reads like its uninspired. The scholars of old who've said its not included in canon appear to right. Similarly Jasher reads a lot like Genesis, but then it doesnt. I believe these (extra biblical) can be good to talk through to understand the Jewish mindset, historical context, figures of speech and things we would not normally associate as westerners in the 21st century. But placing them on a pedestal above canon, is obviously flawed and for good reason. Dont sell yourself short, the Word and Spirit are in you and He will give you the wisdom you ask for (James 1:5)
