Is the Apocrypha part of the Word of God or what. It was written separately from the Bible, but I was just wondering if you have anything to say . Thank you.
The “apocrypha” is defined as “writings or statements of dubious authenticity (not genuine); books included in the Vulgate (Catholic bible), but excluded from the Jewish and Protestant Bibles” (Merriam Webster’s Seventh New Collegiate Dictionary).
As you can see, the Jews have never accepted apocryphal books as part of the Bible, and the true church of Jesus Christ has never accepted them as part of the Bible, either.
As is expected, the devil tries to counterfeit everything that God does, and tries to deceive people. When the Bible was being written, the devil was trying to have corrupt writings written and added to the Scriptures, but the true church rejected them as corrupt. The Catholic Church accepted them, to back up their false doctrines like purgatory, and prayers for the dead, etc.
The apocryphal books are to be rejected as corrupt.
