@Dougvj: I think many would agree that -- somehow -- Sin / Satan exists to glorify some attribute of God. What is interesting is the question of mechanics ... how ?

comment Why is Jesus at the center of everything
I grew up in a church where the teachings was much more focused on "human morality / being a nice person / being the type of person that others would want to be around => converting them to Christ." When I started reading reformed theology -- it was quite a shock, where the focus was almost entirely on the attributes of God.

comment How many 'Books' never made it to the Bible (Old and New Testament)?
Dumb question on my part: when Luke wrote Luke, had Paul been converted?

I think the problem is that you need to define "what was it removed from?" Also the council of Nicaea may be of interet to you.

comment Do Jewish people go to heaven?
Moses and Elijah were at the transfiguration. I'd say they made it into heaven. (See Luke 9:27-36)
