My Bible Is Fake, What About Yours?

That book, the bible- the word of the most high- written by people who were inspired by God was my guideline until 2 years back. I discovered it was fake and i put a big question mark on it. In the course of time i discovered the bible as we see it is an edited book( i would prefer a holy book with all its 'flaws'). All the bibles i see people carry to church were catholic-inspired creating a religion that also looked at the politics side of it. The bibles we so put all our hope in have many missing books(the gospels of Mary, Philip, etc) so i ask why did the church decide to remove those books? why are the 4 gospels so similar yet written years after 'death' of christ? unless some copied others.
Where was jesus during those lost years? Please help me understand this because my bible seems fake to me. If yours makes sense enlighten me.

Trying to read The Bible will turn you into an atheist-something I read about someone a long time ago-Read the Bible, became an atheist. However, I'm not an atheist myself. I'm agnostic-hey, I don't know and neither do you. There might be something after death-maybe. I'll just live my life as I see fit.. I'm a good person and I even go to church. Yes, but the church is Unitarian. Today the minister said that being called a Unitarian in the past (1800's) was the same as being called a heretic. I think that in order to really believe in the Bible you have to be indoctrinated as a child (and I wasn't). If the writers of the Bible could suddenly come back to life now, they'd be amazed and stunned over how much damage their writings have caused.

Really? Can you take a moment and explain what’s so harmful about these?

“YOU heard that it was said, ‘You must love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ However, I say to YOU: Continue to love YOUR enemies and to pray for those persecuting YOU; that YOU may prove yourselves sons of YOUR Father who is in the heavens, since he makes his sun rise upon wicked people and good and makes it rain upon righteous people and unrighteous. For if YOU love those loving YOU, what reward do YOU have? (Matthew 5:43-46)

"But now really put them all away from YOU, wrath, anger, badness, abusive speech, and obscene talk out of YOUR mouth. Do not be lying to one another. Accordingly, [] clothe yourselves with the tender affections of compassion, kindness, lowliness of mind, mildness, and long-suffering. Continue putting up with one another and forgiving one another freely if anyone has a cause for complaint against another. Even as Jehovah freely forgave YOU, so do YOU also. But, besides all these things, [clothe yourselves with] love, for it is a perfect bond of union." - Colossians 3:8,9, 12-14.

Actually, the "Protestant" canon agrees more with the very first Bible, The Tanakh, than with the Catholic and Orthodox canons. This is significant because The Tanakh is decidedly older than the Catholic and Orthodox canons making these illegitimate adulterations of the Bible.

The Word of God is Jesus, not the Bible. Part of the Bible is the work of man because God never speaks poorly or unclearly. And since the Devil always seeks to thwart the will of God, through his cunning influence of men some portions of the Bible may have come from the Deceiver. That does not make the Bible evil, just flawed. And if you read it love, God's Words will shine more clearly than those of men. I also believe that, just as the New Testament can clarify the Old, The Poem of the Man†God that I am posting here can clarify the New. You no longer need to look for missing books that were removed because of content that early Church leaders deemed was designed by the Devil. Do you think the Devil inactive in trying to suppress/obfuscate the Word?<br />
As for Jesus' lost years, He was a nonentity living in stealth, according to the Poem. Exposing Himself prematurely would hinder His Mission and may kill Him before Christianity had time to take root − Satan has too much influence on the rich and powerful. Being truly human also has its downsides in that a human mind needs time to mature and grow in wisdom despite having a direct and unobstructed connection with God.

Why would a perfect god allow Satan to exist then? If I was a god and truly loved my creations, I wouldn't create a being that could damage or corrupt everything else I created. That would make no sense.

I hope you don't mind me putting my "two cents" in here. I just wanted to share my belief that God created satan as Lucifer, God's highest ranking archangel. Lucifer was actually God's most perfect creation. He was beautiful, God gave him power and authority over all the other angels but that wasn't good enough for Lucifer. He wanted to be God and he wanted to be worshipped like God so he was kicked out of heaven (by God) and thrown here on earth. I wont go further than that unless you want so I hope it's ok that I tried to answer your question.

I am not sure, but I think it is has to do with God being both Justice and Love. I think God would not be Justice or Love if He gave freedom to disobey to His creatures then zaps to nothingness all those who choose to disobey. This explains hell as well. I think God Who created Everything also created a hole out of this Universe/His Creation for all those who do not want Him, His rules, or His love which binds the Universe together. Take note that Satan cannot corrupt anything that did not want to be corrupted. The world is a mess because of the selfishness of men instigated by Satan. Everything else untouched by man seems pristine to me.

Well I doubt there is a correct Bible, so I can't very well tell you about a correct one. This Bible is the "Inspired word of men who think women are barely worth more than cattle". <br />
