The deuterocanonical books are not found in the Hebrew Bible. They were added by the Catholic Church at the Council of Trent after Luther rejected it.
A ridiculous argument. A basic understanding of history refutes this.
Christ and the Apostles frequently quoted Old Testament Scripture as their authority, but they never quoted from the deuterocanonical books, nor did they even mention them. Clearly, if these books were part of Scripture, the Lord would have cited them.
I’ve never made that argument. It is another weak one.
The deuterocanonical books contain historical, geographical, and moral errors, so they can’t be inspired Scripture.
Absolutely true, but not necessarily a reason to claim it isn’t canon. Luther makes that claim about Judith, Tobit, and 2 Macc, and I’m not convinced.
The deuterocanonical books themselves deny that they are inspired Scripture.
I’ve never made this argument, either.
The early Church Fathers, such as St. Athanasius and St. Jerome (who translated the official Bible of the Catholic Church), rejected the deuterocanonical books as Scripture, and the Catholic Church added these books to the canon at the Council of Trent.
The first part is true, the second part is only partially true. The local synods at Rome, Hippo, and Carthage, all seem to be affirmed by Trent. But it is before Trent that many a Catholic provides opinion on the canon that does not match. In other words, they were allowed to state an opinion.
