It is written "For the preaching of the cross (of Yeshua HaMashiach) is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God."

The true Gospels (there are only four of them, for good reason, not to be debated here for the lack of reasonable cause), which have the simple message that believing in the person of Yeshua HaMashiach, Jesus Christ, is the only course to salvation, according to the Holy Bible. No corrolary text, such as the suspect 'gospel of St. Thomas' or other questionable writ such as the apochrypha is necessary to reach the inevitalbe conclusion that all have sinned and are in desperate need to believe in the LORD Jesus Christ. He was sent to reveal the true Word of the LORD, was crucified to death, buried, and then rose from the dead to assume His power and authority as our Living LORD, all according to the appropriate Holy Scriptures. By the way, we will reitereate that the Prophet of Islam knew of the true Gospels, but dismissed them for unbelief and wrote his own replacement.

That the 'gospel of Thomas' is used to detract from the central Truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ is enough evidence to dismiss the 'Thomas' version, and better scholars from a more appropriately Christian perspective have already made that case.

Better to be a fool for Christ than anybody else's.
