I was just sitting around trying to think of a good Great Debate topic, when suddenly my Bible fell into my arms. (Okay, so I picked it up. Same difference!)
Manny people have asked me, and so I wonder, who was it that decided that the canon of Judeo-Christian scripture was closed? Did a small group of people suddenly say, "God can't communicate any more, so the Bible is all He will ever say to us," or something?
And obviously to some groups the canon of scripture is different than to others (Judaism doesn't accept the New Testament, Catholicism has more books in its canon than Protestantism, and Mormonism has even more books in its canon than Catholicism. And don't get me started on those Dianetics people....)
Who the heck decides what is scripture and what is not? Isn't it a bit, um, presumptuous to assume that God can't speak more than He's already spoken? (My answer to that question: yes.)
