And why are using the word “You”, if the names are not meant to signify, the actual person from history, on your list? I can only assume that you think I have some kind of a dominating personality or something?

Maybe based on this thread alone, it might look that way… but you couldn’t be further away from the truth, if you tried any harder.

As in the Jesus Christ Superstar the musical (Youve Got the wrong Man Maybe, I believe you, there was another man that looked like me and you recognized its face). I have no past life memories; only the observance of others. Wandering Scribe needs to weigh in here, because It has something to say, If it will only tell the truth of its existance exposed understand It will not dispute itself as SOLOMON living now; for proof probably nay say me but I will chase it down pit it and make it admit its true being. Just as you a very special being.

No thing wrong with Herod, why do you dislike him? How could he have known He'd go down in Christian history as a fiend. I see him as a lost potencial for the good and admire his moxy. You must see the ones denighing their past life existence are the ones the loudest screaming in the empty barrel.

I see many Christians on ATS who appear to accept the “Book of Enoch” as if it were a natural part of the Biblical cannon. I would like to get everyone’s thoughts regarding the “Book of Enoch”, or more specifically, “The Book of Watchers”. As you may be aware, the book is still today, seen as canonical, by the Ethiopian Christians, but was of course always rejected, for inclusion, by the Jews.

Now here’s the interesting twist to the questions I’m posing, which I must warn you, is very controversial. The Ethiopian Jews have a claim (key word being claim) that they are part of the original descendants, of the House of Israel! Now please understand, I’m not saying this is a fact, but there does appear to be some evidence out there, which suggests this could be true. If this is true, then it raises huge questions, as to which Biblical Old Testament, is the most complete/correct one.

We know that the book of Jude mentions Enoch in verse 14, and it also appears that a few of the Church Fathers, Iranaeus and Clement gave the book their seal of approval. In fact, Tertullian made mention of the Jews rejection of the book, in the 3rd century; mentioning that the Jews rejected it, because it prophesied of Christ. There are also clear historical connections between Jesus and the Essenes, who also kept the “Book of Enoch”, as part of their cannon. The complete book was only discovered centuries later, in the Ethiopian communities, around the 17th Century.

As a Christian, do you believe the book was inspired and should therefore have been made part of Biblical cannon? etc…And if you accept the book, then how has it affected your overall beliefs?

Or, are you a Christian who thinks that it was rightly not included in the Bible; and if so, then why?

So you have no past life memories eh! And yet you were there!!! lol

That means your either “Count Dracula”, “The Highlander”, or perhaps one of Methuselahs, distant relatives lol

Judging by Wandering Scribes last post, which can be found here, I don’t think he’s in the mood for further communications, with you.

Can't answer for vethumanbeing - but - can try to unravel the riddle...
Reminds me of a song by the Rolling Stones - Sympathy for the Devil...
Assuming all things stated to have been honest and accurate...who then, would It be?
I will not offer a guess, at this point...but may later, when I have had time to weigh all statements.

considering it is in the dead sea scrolls and is very much part of the source material myths from Babylonians and Sumerians, I accept it.

The Bible has been butchered through marginalia errors, Gnostics, and Constantine initial en-paganing of Christianity....it has never been explained why it was excluded....other than it made conflicts with other parts...which in and of themselves are not without conflict and contradiction.

It is all valid....IMO

I’m puzzling over it even more; now that you’ve added the extra sentences lol…where the heck did you get those from…???

Reminds of math class when I was a kid; constantly trying to figure out, where they were getting that extra! figure from.

This is very interesting. The first 3 times attempting to watch the Truman (TrueMan) Show I tranced out as in fell asleep. The fourth time I was allowed to watch it begining to end. I recognised NOT ONLY MYSELF but the ENTIRE human specie and its dilemma of constant manipulation by others, a real eye opener. The reason for the wait period; it was not the time yet to witness and understand the ugliness perpetrated upon the human.

There were many tears (only for an instant or so). Question this reality, Hollywood is in constant bickering with itself--"make the movies discribing them, (you, I themselves) and is it moral to have them go pay $12.00 a ticket?" We have so little understanding of ourselves that we have to watch movies to explain ourselves to ourselves.

YOUR analogies as to names to faces is to me spot on identifying/expressing some very very abstract ideas about one aspect regarding the nature of reincarnation/recurrence of thought ie. deeds commited past.

French Films--they are a beautiful concise expression of the existencial "where do we fit here"; their genious is in the sense of humor and knowing it (that of being in such a state of confusion). I would bet during their wars with the English someone could have been caught wispering--"Do we not know a joke we could tell them and they would all die laughing?" We then would'nt have to go to the Americans and sell them the Louisiana Territory to fund this dibacal.

Well - as posited in another thread - "Who" is perpetrating the ugliness?..."& Why"?

Do you believe this understanding (of ourselves) should be evident...?
Do you believe the "Who & Why" (above) should be evident?


YOUR analogies as to names to faces is to me spot on identifying/expressing some very very abstract ideas about one aspect regarding the nature of reincarnation/recurrence of thought ie. deeds commited past.

We then would'nt have to go to the Americans and sell them the Louisiana Territory to fund this dibacal.

One of my favorites (situated in France, WW II) was actually written by a British novelist (Greene), starring Anthony Hopkins...called The Tenth Man (1988).
The situation/s and consequences were dark and heavy (for me). Yet, seemed to address some apparently legitimate moral questions.

Am still considering the puzzle/s referenced before...

I think that the Book of Enoch as well as the Book of Jubilees were excluded from the Catholic Cannon because the Catholics didn't want their people consorting with angels Both books outline the names, duties and stations of the angels and have been used in "Enochian Magic and attributed to the sorcery of Solomon.


But isn’t that like kind of admitting that Solomon, was in turn, not a righteous prophet from God, if he was dabbling in sorcery and magic etc. Perhaps this is even the key reason, as to why the Jews wanted to get rid of it, in the first place.

Angel’s names and their functions/attributes, are mentioned in the book of Daniel and a few other books within the Bible; so it seems strange to clamp down on one book, for that reason alone.



Originally posted by windword
Here, in the THE COMPLETE CANONS OF THE SYNOD OF LAODICEA IN PHRYGIA PACATIANA you see where it is strictly forbidden.



CANON XXXV.
CHRISTIANS must not forsake the Church of God, and go away and invoke angels and gather assemblies, which things are forbidden. If, therefore, any one shall be found engaged in this covert idolatry, let him be anathema; for he has forsaken our Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, and has gone over to idolatry.



Interestingly, the Book of Revelations, has this to say about the church of Laodicea



Revelation 3:16
“So, because you are lukewarm--neither hot nor cold--I am about to spit you out of my mouth.”





Originally posted by windword
It seems to me that there are a lot of things that are already in the Old Testament that are worse for Christians to accept, like murder and rape, than knowing about the angels.


Yes, my thoughts exactly. The most common reason given by the church for not accepting the “Book of Enoch” is because of the issue, of Angels having sex with humans. But IMO this seems an unlikely reason for it’s rejection, because it’s a theme already mentioned in passages such as Genesis 6:1-4 and the notion of Angels walking around, like regular men, is also clearly covered in the OT. And there are far worse things depicted in the Bible, as you rightly pointed out.

There is clearly a push by a few church Fathers, to include the “Book of Enoch”, but as Tertullian mentioned, it was the Jewish disdain of the book, that IMO seems to be the more telling factor, for it’s rejection.

- JC


Do you suppose the innate hieretical Catholic distrust of the carnel knoweledge, threw out anything referring to bodily lust intuited this (referenced it) as Angels procreating with humans?. Sacraledge? Parrishaners go pro-create, we ourselves distain it or are above it? Hippocracy on a grand scale.

Solomon was a great magickian and the problem with the recognization of such (solomon) in Enochian text was to place Fear (unintended) into an otherwise dream supernatureal. This book should have slipped and slided into obscurity. It was the notion that there may be hidden truths here that frightenned the 'religious' power brokers. This resulted in too much accidental scrutiny. In so doing by the act of marginalizing it/ hiding it brought it into a spotlight gaining the attention of those first rate lie/truth detectors unabashably wanting to explain ancient mystery or at least question motives. Those motives being why hide it? It Backfired.

An aside--Rape and murder are of the physical realm therefore tangible, the last thing we are supposed to understand about ourselves are the intangible realms which for all good will intended is the real truth.

Floating around (like helium in a mylar balloon as a rememberance to something that has passed) that would be a celebrational/memorial perhaps? Stalking the right DNA structure; billions of the upright bipedal host beings a potencial harbringer of.
