Did you know that putting your elbows on the table when having guest over is going against the word of the bible?

Sirach 41:19

Everything written below was directed at a "person" who was rather rude. It is staying here as a reminder to others to be polite and act like adults. It is also staying as evidence that the book of Sirach is real and is in certain versions of the bible.
First of all blocking someone for no reason and not allowing them to give their side is rather childish isn't? You are 35 years old, act like it.

Second, I did not add anything to the bible.
"Though not included in the Hebrew Bible after the first century A.D., nor accepted by Protestants, the Book of Sirach has always been recognized by the Catholic Church as divinely inspired and canonical. The Foreword, though not inspired, is placed in the Bible because of its antiquity and importance." (http://old.usccb.org/nab/bib...
"This book is not found in all Bibles. At the time of the Reformation, the official version of the Old Testament became a point of disagreement among Christian groups. The Protestants retained the shorter Hebrew canon, or listing of books, and thus preserved the more ancient Jewish version of the Bible. The Roman Catholics accepted the wider Greek canon and thereby preserved an authentic early-Church version. Those books not found in the Hebrew canon are called deuterocanonical (second listing) by Roman Catholics and Apocrypha (inspiring but not inspired) by Protestants. Sirach belongs to this listing." (http://www.liguorian.org/ind...

And one more thing Red_Horse (and everyone else): a wise man admits he is wrong, he doesn't turn tail and run when he is corrected.

Not every bible will have the book of Sirach/Ecclesiasticus but it is in there. Do your homework before making accusations.

    The Apocrypha is only part of the Catholic Bible. Jews and reformed versions of Christians do not include this portion in their Bibles.

    I am aware. It is still in a version of the bible so my statment (question, really) is valid.

    Sorry if that may seem a bit bichy but I had enough of people yelling at me over this question and making wild accusations that I'm adding things to the bible and this book just doesn't and never has existed or that I am going to hell.

    Sirach is not in the HOLY BIBLE...it was not included in the early Hebrew Bible. While there may be some Sirach influences in the New Testament, it was not included as a book, into the canon referred to as the Holy Bible today.
