    I was raised a Chrstian Catholic, went to church, Sunday school & practiced my religion. I am very sorry to say, in my older years, I have been a terrible Christian. I keep promising I will start church again & keep putting it off. I made a new promise, I WILL go to church next Sunday & continue to go, it always made me feel so much better & when I left, I always felt so peaceful & joyful & the little books they handed out always had so much to say that filled my heart & made me a better person. Why I stopped was simple laziness, I need my church & I need that peace again. We all do.

    I say yes in regards to the fact that I am catholic. Hence I have read books that protestants chose to omit from their bible. Which happen to be the last 5 or six books listed. As for the other books instead of claiming they were quoted. I would say it is more plausible they quoted the books from which the verses mentioned as quotes came from. Then the authors created their own story around it.

    Some time back I read some in 'Lost books of Eden' (I think) Book of Enoch, I found interesting. ' Book of life' is probably the most important (next to the Bible). Greatest Question? Is your name written in the Lamb's book of life? No one on earth has ever read it, although certain judgemental Christians think they know the answers..(lol).... Seriously.....I love the Bible best, but am MORE in love with the Author. and that's the truth.

    I can't remember If I actually read them, or just read the synopses in my Bible As Lit Class. I am fairly sure I read a couple of them, Judith and part of the Maccabees. But It has been like 30 years, and stuff I read that long ago is starting to meld and fade.

    I am going to have to put some of these on my reading list though.

    The Bible itself tells us that there are missing books of scripture. A good argument that there is more scripture available than what is included in the Bible.

    Mt story reads pretty much ver battem to yours. I kelp wanting to "get back" in Church but kelp
    putting it off. About 3 yrs. ago I made the "step back" to Church. Believe me I made the right
    choice. I feel better, more at peace with myself and the World. Just a GREAT feeling. You
    want regret it.

    OBTW.........You and I are about the same maturity level.

    Some parts of some of them, and general analysis of many of the gnostic gospels.

    GOOD question - when people refer to the Bible...I always wonder if they know about the other gospels......
