I believe it is rather important to know the history of the Church or how the Bible itself was put together. There are believers that seemingly think the Church almost didn't exist from the end Acts to when the reformation happened. I ran into a fundamentalist once and he emphatically told me that if it is not written in the King James Bible, that it was not of God. To which I simply asked him to show me the chapter and verse of his claim. Not in there and he just stared silently at me. I pointed that he had just said if it is not in the King James Bible that it is not of God and what he said was not written in there. I asked what does that mean, about your claim based on your testimony. I then asked unless it did not occur to God to place it on the hearts of his prophets or the disciple who wrote Revelations, that the ONLY TRUE WORD OF GOD was going to be written in the year 1611. The original King James version had the 7 books of the deuterocanonicals. They were not taken out of the King James until late in the 19th century. Which means to many the only true version of the word is the revision of the King James in the 19th century. Of course they still have a hard time explaining Hebrews 11:35 which refers to something described in 2nd Maccabees chapter 7. Then we have people I suppose that ignore Paul where he says in several places that we are to hold fast to the traditions as they are passed on to us through the Church, which according to 1st Timothy 3:15 is the pillar of truth. History is a hard thing to accept, but it is not wise to ignore it either.
