    I'm talking about Christianity.

    Who was the only man to walk with GOD and go into heaven with him?

    The answer is Enoch - Genesis 5:24 - And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.



    But did you know Enoch wrote a book called the Book of Enoch, but it is not cannonized in the bible. For what reasons I am not sure but it seems weird to me that it is not because this guy actually walked with God and went into heaven with him.

    Read the Book of Enoch

    Adam also walked with God; as have others, but no one wants to believe it because it's not "canonized" by the Catholic church.

    I was referring to walk in heaven with God as well as on Earth. Unless others did that also.

    It is not a matter of belief in the Catholic canon of Scripture....... IF YOU ARE NOT CATHOLIC.... right?

    In fact, the majority (if not all) non-Catholic Christians read a Bible that is missing some books that are part of the Catholic canon of Scripture. I would guess that your Bible does not contain 1 or 2 Maccabees does it?? 8)

    Do not blame the Catholic Church for your Bible....... read whatever you like. The Gospel of Thomas is wonderful if you have the chance to read it........... just a thought!

    Peace,

    Maccabees are not canon. They are called deuterocanonical books, and they are studied by Catholics for historical value. THey are not considered canon by the Catholic church. The Bible as we know it was given to us by the Catholic church; and for some reason, everyone wants to fight tooth and nail to make sure that it remains true to its Catholic heritage.

    Dan,

    Thanks for your input, but you are quite wrong.

    From the Catechism of the Catholic Church:

    120 It was by the apostolic Tradition that the Church discerned which writings are to be included in the list of the sacred books. This complete list is called the canon of Scripture. It includes 46 books for the Old Testament (45 if we count Jeremiah and Lamentations as one) and 27 for the New.
    The Old Testament: Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy, Joshua, Judges, Ruth, 1 and 2 Samuel, 1 and 2 Kings, 1 and 2 Chronicles, Ezra and Nehemiah, Tobit, Judith, Esther, 1 and 2 Maccabees, Job, Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, the Song of Songs, the Wisdom of Solomon, Sirach (Ecclesiasticus), Isaiah, Jeremiah, Lamentations, Baruch, Ezekiel, Daniel, Hosea, Joel, Amos, Obadiah, Jonah, Micah, Nahum, Habakkuk, Zephaniah, Haggai, Zachariah and Malachi.

    The New Testament: the Gospels according to Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, the Acts of the Apostles, the Letters of St. Paul to the Romans, 1 and 2 Corinthians, Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, 1 and 2 Thessalonians, 1 and 2 Timothy, Titus, Philemon, the Letter to the Hebrews, the Letters of James, 1 and 2 Peter, 1, 2 and 3 John, and Jude, and Revelation (the Apocalypse).


    Peace,
    Scott

    I wouldn't want to cast a doubt on the words of Yeshua. Jn 3:13
    The word was "God took him" The Hebrews seem to suggest to Shalem, Malak Ha Tzadik/King of Salem, Priest of the most High God. Has no beginning and no end, Yeshua Ha Mishiach is compared to him!
