The RCC Old Testament has over 4000 verses from a group of writings known as the Apocrypha. Apocrypha means “Hidden” or “Hard to understand”. Although the Roman Catholic Church recognizes and declared that “God inspired 12 of the 15 writings of the said Apocrypha. These books are: Tobit, Judith, 1 Maccabees, 2 Maccabees, Wisdom of Solomon, Sirach, Baruch.
Plus five passages Bel and the Dragon, The Prayer of Azariah, Susanna, The Letter of Jeremiah and A 107 verse expansion of the Book of Esther.
These are NOT INSPIRED as according to the Roman Catholic Church claims!
For the following reasons:
- Jews of Palestine did not recognize the writing’s as part of Sacred Scripture.
- Jesus did not treat the Apocrypha as Sacred Scripture
- The early Church didn’t accept the writing’s as inspired
- The RCC didn’t even declare the scriptures to be inspired until the Council of Trent in the 16th Century!
The RCC wants you to also believe that they gave us the Bible! This is emphatically incorect!
Please pray that the Roman Catholic Follower comes to Christ!
