How Big is Your God?

John 21:25. "And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen."

Do you know how many books/scriptures were left out of the Canon, the authorized KJV? Why were the Dead Sea Scrolls and other writings not included? What about the lost books of the Bible, the Gnostic Gospels, the Apocrypha, Kabbalah?

Are you so closed-minded that you believe that everything there is to know about your God-He who created this world and all worlds and universes, (science says the Universe is continuously expanding)-could be contained in just one book, the Bible? REALLY? Are you saying there is nothing more that can be said about your God? Is He asleep? Is He no longer doing anything? Is that what you think? If everything was set in motion during the six days of creation, it stands to reason that everything is still in motion. Science also says that a body in motion tends to stay in motion. God rested on the seventh day because He had already set things in motion and the universe is still evolving.

Personally, I am curious about the writings that the Church has condemned. First, I want to know why these books were condemned and labeled heresy. Next, I want to read everything I can find including other translations of the Bible, not just the NIV, NASB, AMP, etc.

For too long, we have put God in a box or rather one book. That's like trying to put the entire ocean in one jar or the universe in a box. I welcome the truth of a God too big, too vast, too fantastic to know even the minutest detail about. GOD IS....
