Posted on 06/11/2014 8:46:28 AM PDT by Salvation
Featured Term (selected at random:
In general, a desertion from a solemn commitment. In the Old Testament apostasy meant a rebellion against the Lord (Joshua 22:22) or abandonment of the Jewish religion (I Maccabees 2:15). The two passages in the New Testament where the term occurs refer to giving up the Mosaic law (Acts 21:21) and the mysterious religious revolt that is to precede the second coming of Christ (II Thessalonians 2:3).

I heard somewhere that there were 18 books mentioned in the Bible that were not in the Bible. Some can be found but most can’t. The ones that you can find are quite interesting.
