Gospel of Judas

VATICAN: POPE BANISHES JUDAS' GOSPEL
(AGI) - Vatican, Apr 13 - The Vatican, by word of Pope Ratzinger, grants the recently surfaced Judas' Gospel no credit with regards to its apocryphal claims that Judas betrayed Jesus in compliance with the latter's own requests. According to the Pope Judas freely chose to betray Jesus: "an open rejection of God's love". Judas according to Ratzinger "viewed Jesus in terms of power and success: his only real interests lied with his power and success, there was no love involved. He was a greedy man: money was more important than communing with Jesus; money came before God and his love". According to the Pope it was due to these traits that led Judas to "turn liar, two-faced, indifferent to the truth", "losing any sense of God", "turning hard, incapable of converting, of being the prodigal son, hence throwing away a spent existence".

I've passed by this Gnostic gospel in the internet when I was researching on the Da Vinci Code.. You can call me a skeptic when it comes to these things cause I can't let my faith be shattered by these Anti-Christianity people. Good thing the Pope banned this Gnostic gospel. It's definitely not Roman Catholic. I'm just sharing this info with you guys just so you will be guided. If ever you read these Gnostic gospels, bear in mind that God is not in those gospels. It's up to you how strong your faith in God is. If you will let your faith be shattered by these things, then God have mercy.
