Did some formal study at a Bible school in the US about 8 years ago. Find enjoyment from reading books like the Moody Handbook of Theology. Raised Catholic until 14. Followed the typical non-denominational dogma until about 23. Had a hodge-podge of theologies for about five years after that, the most notable being Annihilationism. I am now agnostic. Much of that is currently based on the fact that God does not seem real in my life and I cannot find a suitable answer to the problem of evil. I'm still receptive to there being a god(s), but I do not believe Christianity accurately describes him/them.

This is kind of funny: http://www.venganza.org/images/fsmrof.png
Disclaimer: I am in no way a Pastafarian. It's just funny is all.

Welcome to the site and thank you for sharing. The community here prefers answers that can be substantiated, as in sourced. The site strives for an academic quality and unfortunately this answer falls short of that. You can click edit to make it better, or just don't worry about it. It's not really that important. What I would like to see is your continued participation. Ask questions, if you have them, or answer question if you know the answer. We're glad you're here.

The morality of speculation has nothing to do with it. Without any support, this certainly is entirely speculative.

comment Did Jesus know who was damned and who was saved while He was on earth?
How are we to know what Jesus knew? On this site, questions like this must be framed within a specific perspective (i.e. Catholic, Reformed, Martin Luther, etc.). Without that framework, all answers are legitimate and can vary wildly.

comment What is the biblical basis for the use of extra-biblical books in the study of Christ?
I'm not sure this question makes sense unless someone believes there is a biblical basis to not use anything else. It seems natural to me that it is appropriate to read what others say about their study of Christ. Does anyone actually say otherwise?

There's also a good deal of opinion in the question. A definition of innerrancy would vary. What would constitute an element that would render the Bible errant is entirely opinion based. The third question is also thoroughly opinion based.

This is entirely speculative. Answers need at least some support.
