Answer Text :
Your first question whether the church is said to have mixed up and edited the documents of the NT as we have them today is based on pure misunderstandings about things in the past. You must remember that the church was a persecuted minority in the Roman empire till Constantine changed his attitude towards the church in the beginning of the 4th century. It is true that the full Bible as we have it now in manuscript form is found from the 4th century AD. But there are hundreds of manuscript fragments which confirm the fact that the NT writings, as we have them today, have NEVER been meddled with at all. Please read about the NT manuscripts in http://biblefacts.org/history/oldtext.html .
Your second question whether they are part of Gnosticism is thoroughly to be thrown out because NT writings are AGAIST Gnostic teachings! It is true that Gnosticism was prevalent in the NT world and the church had to FIGHT against it for its pure doctrine. And 1John clearly speaks against Gnostic concepts in clearest terms.
Your question about noto scrolls is interesting, as if one piece of obscure writing could destroy all that was written about Christ and His redeeming work!! You asked whether Christianity could be destroyed. If it was ever possible for it to be destroyed, it would have been done in the first two centuries of its existence. If none could do it then, NO FORCE ON EARTH CAN EVER DO IT AS JESUS SAID, “I WILL BUILD MY CHURCH”. Any one who tried to destroy this faith got destroyed themselves eventually. The last major attempt was done by the Communist regimes and you know what happened. Let any one else come up. I guarantee THEIR destruction and NOT the destruction of this faith which is delivered to saints once and for all.
Dear friend, you asked whether it will disprove the divinity of Jesus. His divinity does NOT depend on a few manuscripts any where in the world. It is Eternal, unchallengeable, and unchallenged. His divinity was made manifest to us mortals by a few parchments. But it DOES NOT DEPEND ON HUMAN WRITINGS AT ALL.
Then your last question that some found spirituality and perfection elsewhere is NOT surprising at all. From time immemorial, the Enemy has been trying to blind the minds of people all over, so that the light of the gospel may not be visible to them. He has been supplying them with duplicate material all over. One of the greatest lies of the Devil is Islam where millions are said to have found “spiritual solace”. Is there any wonder that some find it else where in some other spurious writings? God bless!!
