All-Creatures Ministry and Web Site
By Frank and Mary Hoffman - 18 Feb 2013
Thank you for your explanations of how you tell if something is from the Creator God or from some other source. It may be expressed somewhat differently than the Bible, but it does follow the same creation and heavenly will of God presented in the Bible.
The Bible was written in stages over many centuries. The original writers were the Yawist writers followed by Eloist and Deuteronomist and finally the Priestly writers who returned from Babylon and codified the Bible in the 500-400 BCE period. The source their material is undisclosed, and is sometimes conflicting.
The Dead Sea scrolls you mentioned follow more of the earliest writers and reject a lot of the Priestly additions. They seem to have been trying to return to God's original intent.
Biblical history is filled with a lot of ungodly things which we are to learn from and not follow. We are to follow God's creation intent and heavenly will which causes no pain, suffering, mourning, or death for the whole of creation.
We hope this answers your question.
In the Love of the Lord,
Frank and Mary
