Modern-day Protestant pastors (even Born-Again) and Iglesia Ni Cristo® paid ministers avoided talking this topic by all honesty to their followers for fear of opening their hearts to the TRUTH about the CANONICAL ORIGIN of the WORD OF GOD called The BIBLE and WHO COMPILED them! -CD2000
Catholic Online: Catholic Bibles contain, and have always contained, all of the books of the Bible that have been traditionally accepted by Christians dating back to the time of Jesus. These accepted books total 46 in the Old Testament and 27 in the New Testament. Protestant Bibles, however, have seven fewer books in their Old Testament. These seven books excluded in the Protestant Bible are Baruch, Sirach, 1 and 2 Maccabees, Tobit, Judith and the Wisdom of Solomon, plus portions of Esther and Daniel.
These books were rejected by Protestant Reformers in the 1500s because elements in these books did not support certain Protestant theology and doctrines. Prior to the sixteenth century, however, all Christians used Bibles containing all 46 books of the Old Testament.
During the first century, there was much debate among the early Christians as to what made up the canon of Scripture.
The Church, having been given authority by Jesus Christ and under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, compiled the Bible in the form that it exists today.
