    Dear Carline

    The reason that both Jews and many Christian churches rejected those books was that they promote faulse teachings like the one you mentioned. Oftren teachings from those books that are known as Apocrypha or Deuterocanonical contradict the rest of the OT scriptures. Though they are used as historical books to fill the historical gap between the last book in OT and Jesus Christ's time.

    Dear "Carline Preece", v. 44 (For if he had not hoped that they that were slaine should haue risen againe, it had bin superfluous and vaine, to pray for the dead.) See how it turned out :)

    Stay blessed in His Name Jesus, love u in Christ. Romans 14

    I'm not understanding the idea of praying for the dead in verse and the verse above .

Do you have a Bible comment or question?
