    • Why isn't the book of Maccabees included in the Bible?
      Shiloh is right.  Enoch is not part of the Deuterocanonical Apocrypha that is now considered part of the "Catholic" Bible.  Enoch is "apocryphal" in nature being along with scores of other books not part of the D.A. in that they were written between 400 B.C. and the time of Christ and they are wrought with historical and Biblical error.  Here's the offical list of the books of the Apocrypha:  1 and 2 Esdras, Additions to Esther, 1 and 2 Maccabees, Tobius, Judith, Wisdom, Sirach, Baruch, Epistle of Jeremiah, Susanna, Prayer of Azariah, Prayer of Mannaseh, Bel and the Dragon, Laodecians The word, "apocrypha" means "hidden" in Greek, but today - in any dictionary - the word means "widely circulated, but more than likely not true at all".  All of the apocryphal books are very easily identifiable due to the time of their writing and their gross errors. Of course there were apocryphal writings at the time of Christ.  That's what makes them, in part, apocryphal.  There were written between the Old and New Testament writings.


       
    • Someone said, The Bible says that God has no form, no image.
      John 4:24; God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.   Not the sun, moon, stars; not an image of wood, stone, or metal; and not a beast or man. He is not the air, wind, mother earth, a universal mind, love or some impersonal quality.
      He is a person with a personal spirit body, a personal soul, and a personal spirit, like that of angels, and like that of man, who He made in His image and likeness, except His body is of a spirit substance instead of flesh and bone (Job 13:8; Hebrew 1:3). 
       
      Job 13:8, Will ye accept his person? will ye contend for God?
       
      Hebrew 1:  3, Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;   Phillip asked Jesus a pertinent question; In John. 14:8;    John 14:8, Philip saith unto him, Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us.    Jesus replied;
      V. 9, Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?   Jesus was the Word who had a spirit body (John 1:1) and He divested Himself of this body and became flesh and bone so that He, as a man, in a physical finite body could die for our sins. As God in a spirit body He could not possibly die, but as a man He could. He told Phillip, look at me, I look just like my Father. Jesus was an image of His Father just as we are made in God's image and likeness. *****************************************************************************************************************************************************************         God does not sit on a throne?   Rev 4:2, "And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne."   Rev 4:3, And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow round about the  throne, in sight like unto an emerald.
      Rev 4:4, And round about the throne were four and twenty seats: and upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders sitting, clothed in white raiment; and they had on their heads crowns of gold.
      Rev 4:5, And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God.
      Rev 4:6, And before the throne there was a sea of glass like unto crystal: and in the midst of the throne, and round about the throne, were four beasts full of eyes before and behind.   Rev 4:9, And when those beasts give glory and honour and thanks to him that sat on the throne who liveth for ever and ever,
      Rev 4:10, The four and twenty elders fall down before Him that sat on the throne, and worship him that liveth for ever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying,
      Rev 5:1, And I saw in the RIGHT HAND OF HIM that sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals.
      Rev 5:6, And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.   Rev 5:7, And he came and took the book out of the right hand of the right hand of Him that sat upon the throne.
      Rev 5:11, And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the  throne and the beasts and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands;
      Rev 5:13, And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto Him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever.
      Rev 6:16, And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the FACE of Him that sitteth on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb:   Rev 7:9, After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;
      Rev 7:10, And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb.
      Rev 7:11, And all the angels stood round about  the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God,
      Rev 7:15, Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: AND HE THAT SITTETH ON THE THRONE shall dwell among them.   How many more Scriptures do you need to get the point that God has a throne and God must have a spirit body to sit on His throne? *******************************************************************************************************************************     .   God personally dwells in Heaven, not everywhere. Jesus addressed His Father and referred to Him as being IN HEAVEN, EIGHTEEN TIMES. Jesus said, "Father which is in Heaven" (Matt. 5:16, 45, 48; 6:1-9, 7:11, 21.) Are we to conclude that you are right and Jesus did not know what He was talking about?  Not one time does one Scripture refer to God as being bodily everywhere. God is Omni-present but not Omni-body, that is He presence can be felt by moral agents who are everywhere, but His body cannot be seen by them everyplace at the same time. God has a body and goes from place to place like anybody else.
