In Whether to leave this forum or not, foreveryoung and jar have been going back and forth regarding the various biblical canons. In Message 108, foreveryoung stated:
foreveryoung in Message 108 in Whether to leave this forum or not:
There is a good reason to believe the current protestant cannon is supernaturally inspired.
This thread will be for foreveryoung and others who share his view on the superiority of the 'protestant canon' (or any canon, for that matter) to defend their position and present evidence in its favor. I'd like to see the discussion follow along these lines:
First, those arguing for superiority of one of the canons will have to define that canon. This will mean listing all of the books that make up the canon as well as the versions of those books where significant variations exist.
Second, these folk will have to define and defend the criteria behind labeling one canon as superior or better than another. What is it about a canon that would make it superior? For example, foreveryoung seems to think that supernatural inspiration is a criterion for a superior canon.
Finally, they will have to show that these criteria are all met in the canon they hold as superior.

Love your enemies!
