Posted on 02/27/2010 8:48:41 PM PST by Salvation
This website surveys the origin and development of Roman Catholic Christianity from the period of the apostolic church, through the post-apostolic church and into the conciliar movement. Principal attention is paid to the biblical basis of both doctrine and dogma as well as the role of paradosis (i.e. handing on the truth) in the history of the Church. Particular attention is also paid to the hierarchical founding and succession of leadership throughout the centuries.
This is a set of lecture notes used since 1985 to teach the basis for key doctrines and dogmas of the Roman Catholic Church. The objectives of the course were, and are:
The course grew out of the need for the authors to continually answer questions about their faith tradition and their work. (Both authors are active members of Catholic parish communities in the Diocese of Richmond, Virginia. Dr. Robert Schihl was a Professor and Associate Dean of the School of Communication and the Arts at Regent University. Paul Flanagan is a consultant specializing in preparing people for technology based changes.) At the time these notes were first prepared, the authors were spending time in their faith community answering questions about their Protestant Evangelical workplaces (Mr. Flanagan was then a senior executive at the Christian Broadcasting Network), and time in their workplaces answering similar questions about their Roman Catholic faith community. These notes are the result of more than a decade of facilitating dialogue among those who wish to learn more about what the Roman Catholic Church teaches and why.
The Hebrew Scriptures: Books of the Old Testament
It will serve now to list in comparable columns the canons of the Old Testament as accepted by both Roman Catholics and Protestant Evangelicals. Jews have the same canon as Protestants.
The lists are divided into the groups as taught by the respective faith groups. The books with asterisks are those of the Roman Catholic canon which are considered canonical, but are labeled apocryphal by Protestants and Evangelicals.
|Hebrew Scriptures||Roman Catholic Old Testament||Protestant Old Testament|
|Palestinian Canon||Alexandrian Canon or||Palestinian Canon|
|Prophets||Historical Books||Historical Books|
|1 Samuel||1 Samuel||1 Samuel|
|2 Samuel||2 Samuel||2 Samuel|
|1 Kings||1 Kings||1 Kings|
|2 Kings||2 Kings||2 Kings|
|Later Prophets||1 Chronicles||1 Chronicles|
|Isaiah||2 Chronicles||2 Chronicles|
|Nahum||Wisdom Books||Poetical Books|
|Malachi||Song of Songs||Song of Songs|
|Writings||Prophetical Books||Prophetical Books|

Palestinian Canon? Surely, you mean cannon?? Seriously, this is very, very bent.
An established rule for guidance, a standard, or a list of such rules: 1. in biblical usage the catalogue of inspired writings known as the Old and New Testaments, identified as such by the Church; 2. in ecclesiastical usage, a short definition of some dogmatic truth, with attached anathema, made as a rule by general councils; 3. the Eucharistic Prayer, which is the essential part of the Sacrifice of the Mass. In religious life, certain orders of men with specific duties often attached to a particular church, shrine, or ecclesiastical function; 4. in music a composition that repeats the same melody by one or more voices in turn, producing harmony; 5. in printing a size type, namely 4 line pica 48 point, used in printing church books or the Canon of the Mass; 6. catalogue of canonized saints; 7. rules of certain religious orders and the books that comprise them; 8. in art and architecture the established rule, which is periodically specified in ecclesiastical matters by Church directives or legislation; 9. a member of the clergy attached to a cathedral or other large church, with specific duties such as the choral recitation of the Divine Office. (Etym. Latin canon, rule, standard of conduct; summary, record; from Greek kan_n, rod, rule.)

What you are asserting is that the scripture came from the palestinians, who are, of course a falsified and non-existent people in the first place - when everyone knows it originated with the Jews.
Thus you are perpetuating the muslim lie that the Koran is really at the bottom of it all (a muslim will tell you that even if Moses was not a muslim he actually wished that he was, notwithstanding the fact that islam wasn't even a gleam in mad mo's forefather's eye at that point in time, and that Jesus was actually one of their flock under the pseudonym of "Issa").
Yes, I know what a "canon" is. Do you know what a "palestinian" is?? Congrats. You have just declared the Catholic church islamic.
