I'll be glad to debate this. The Bible is in fact complete. It was written by man, inspired by God, and is infallible.

plenty of the original books of the bible no longer exists in the modern protestant bible.
Actually the catholic bible has an extra 6 chapters in the book of Esther, and 3 extra in the book of Daniel.

At the Council of Trent in 1548, the two books of Estras were removed from the "sacred scripture" . The Prayer of Manasses was also removed from it.

The Catholic bible actually contains 7 extra books. Most protestants will refer to these as the "apocrypha", but Catholics know them as the "deuterocanonical books".
The books are: Tobit, Judith, 1 and 2 Maccabees, Wisdom of Solomon, Ecclesiasticus (or, Sirach), and Baruch

The proof of the deuterocanonical books are:

1. They were found in the "Septuagint" the original which was the original Greek translation of the old testament, in the 3rd century B.C

2. the the earliest Greek manuscripts of the Old Testament, like the Codex Sinaiticus , and Codex Alexandrinus, contain all of the deuterocanonical books, mixed in with the others books and were not separated.

3. After Martin Luther, protestants removed all of the deuterocanonical books from their bible. They removed them because of doctrines that they did not believe, or did not WANT to believe.

We also have plenty of evidence for the "Apocrypha". The Apocrypha is regarded as the "Lost" or "removed" books of the bible. We have found copies of the bible with the Apocrypha found in them. Many Christian will Refute the Apocrypha because it has belief that they don't agree with. Some will say that it isn't real because it has contradictions with the regular bible. It does have contradictions, but that doesnt prove anything. There are plenty of contradictions in the bible here is a REALLY BIG contradiction.

"And he shall do with the bull as he did with the bull as a sin offering; thus he shall do with it. So the priest shall make atonement for them, and it shall be forgiven them. (Leviticus 4:20)"

the bible contradicts itself later saying

"For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and goats could take away sins. (Hebrews 10:4)"

SO many contradictions in out current bible. So what if the Apocrypha has contradictions? Our current bible has contradictions as well.

The Apocrypha was originally part of the bible, it was removed because people disagreed with what it said. They cherry picked the bile to create what we now call the "bible".
Please be open-minded and look at the facts

The bible has been tampered with.men who wrote it were in spiritual darkness. The bible left out so many things.
