    A religious committee of high ranking church leaders, convened by a king, to define the precepts of a religion, and to pick and choose what texts are or are not correct, couldn't have possibly been corrupt, bias, or influenced by personal motivations, political influence, or power.

    Gotta bring the abstract possibility to bear on the particular situation. Until you do that, my previous remarks stand unrefuted.

    Different timing. KJV is unreliable in part for that reason. Defining the canon was not at the behest of any king, nor conducted in the 1620s.

    I've got course outlines to catch up on, so I'm likely done here. I think I've made my point, and now it's a matter of whether others will accept it. I don't pretend to have full knowledge of all of these issues or a seminary-level understanding. I'm simply trying to defend what is true and refute error where I see it. Also appreciate not getting booted for pushing back, sometimes rather forcibly. I respect you gents on here and hope that has come across even over such a limited medium.

    This is all deflection to avoid dealing with the issue. If the canon is unreliable, what part of it, why, and how does it conflict on fundamental doctrinal issues with the non-canonical books?

    I'm convinced that this is nothing more than a red herring argument. I am open to having my mind changed.

    You know, this did start with a couple remarks about Jesus and what He may or may not have done, didn't it...

    Sorry if it wasn't clear that my remarks were not directed at your points.

    Commenting on your last post (prior to the captioned one}, I'll say that in the South they have a saying, "A man convinced against his will, is of the same opinion still."

    What the heart desires, the mind justifies.

    No no, not at all—my apologies for not making clear that was more of a musing "out loud" about the fact we had gotten down a rabbit hole.

    Also true, to your remark about the South's saying.
