So a Mormon, a Bible Christian and a Catholic apologist are drinking espresso in a coffee house called the Grand Piano on Haight St. in San Francisco. You happen to be at the next table quaffing a Tim Horton’s; St. Benedict’s bird brought it to you.
The Mormon says the Book of Mormon is part of the Bible. The Bible Christian disagrees. The Mormon then says the book of Maccabees is also part of the Bible. They see you reading The Catholic Answer Bible. They ask you your opinion. You say, “Who has the authority to decide this?”
How will the Bible Christian decide which book belongs in the Bible?
