The subject matter of the Book of Enoch is directly attributed to a male descendant of Adam himself...the stature of this character could be
considered second only to Jesus himself...if that were even necessary. In this book the foundation of the law is outlined and without it many other
concepts in the Bible wouldn't be teachable.
The decision to leave it out was a political one; made to support the monopoly on spiritual authority the Priests estimated that they possessed.
These Priests knew then and know now that religion is the path to death and God informed Adam and Eve in Genesis to not eat the fruit from the Tree of
Knowledge of Good and Evil, which is one and the same as religion and the knowledge communicated from the Rebels to the daughters of men.
A less confrontational suggestion I could make would be that the reason the Book of Enoch wasn't included as a separate book in the Bible is becuase
the gist of it was already explained in the Genesis chapter "the fall of man", for the Book also seems to be nothing more than eloboration on this
section of Genesis.
Buy I still think a better reason is that they wanted to keep and expand the power they had and that is why it was left out.
