Hi to all,

I am questioning Paul pretty seriously these days, and have lost my desire to read anything he wrote, or the Book of Hebrews. But where do the epistles of Peter, James and John stand? Are they generally reliable, though not inerrant?

Thanks for your response,

If you translate the word Epistles you'll know exactly what they are. It is a Greek word meaning Letter. They were letters that the authors wrote to others. They can be useful, these are men that spent several years learning from Yahowsha, but they are still men, and still prone to error. Furthermore the textual fidelity of their letters is the same as the rest of the Greek text, which is to say not very good. So take them for what they are worth, but don't consider them divinely inspired.
Don't take my word for it, Look it up.
