Thanks for posting this, Salvation!
It is kind of amazing how many people seem to think that the Bible was written by King James, and that they say (in effect) "if the KJV version was good enough for Jesus, it is good enough for all of us".
Yesterday, Father Mitch pointed out the obvious fact that if it was not for the Tradition of the Church, no one would even know what books belonged in the New Testament. (He pointed out the plain fact that the New Testament does NOT contain a list of the books that belong in the New Testament. Several Councils of the Catholic Church (Tradition) were the vehicles used where the books of the New Testament were selected.)

(The church is the pillar and bulwark of the truth. (1 Timothy 3:15))
Ironically ,modern enemies make us aware how important tradition was to the forming of the canon. Especially those who love the ancient gnostics and tout the Gospel of Thomas denounce the Church for suppressing this and many other heretical books, which for them the “real” truth.
