So the Bible is the word of God. Okay. But I recall that there were many "Gospels" and letters from Paul to the Churches; which ones did we know were to be considered "inspired"?

Sure thing. I meant to ask this, "How do we know that the books in our Bible are the ones that God wanted in there?"

The heart cannot rejoice in what the mind rejects as false - Galileo

We learn from history that we do not learn from history - Georg Friedrich Wilhelm Hegel

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable, if anything is excellent or praiseworthy, think about such things. -Philippians 4:8
