It depends on what you add to it. If you add more truth to it you add to the total truth and subtract nothing but ignorance.

An excuse not to add the New Testment to the Talmud!

Sometimes we get lies and half truths from the Obama, Pelosi,and Reed crowd. To determine if the are lying, just see if there lips are moving.

Waffler, Smith

When one tells the truth he should then just shut up. It is like telling the boss you are late because 1) you had a flat tire and 2) the wife burnt the coffee and had to start a new pot. Well only one reason is necessary, the true reason.

Waffler, Smith

Hey Cal there are some groups who teach that it is all one book, all one God and God does not change The so called New Testament is not new but a continuation and completion. Christ was promised to come in Genesis, came in the Gospels, was preached about in the Epistles, and promised to return again in Revelation. All one truth, nothing added.

Waffler, you are subtracting from the truth again. Actually, cal, the Old Testiment is known as the Torah. The Talmud is a record of rabbinic discussions pertaining to Jewish law, ethics, customs, and history, and it is a central text of Judaism. It is hardly 'truth.'
