another false gnostic gospel, suprise!

Gospel of Judas
My initial thoughts
Writings that were accepted into the cannon of scripture had to fit all of the following criteria....1. correlates with what Jesus taught in public and at synagogues (which it doesn't)2. has to be strongly connected with one of the 12 (which it did before Judas was replaced right before pentacost)3. the manuscript was used in worship during the time after Jesus' death and before cannonization (it doesn't seem like it could be used because it doesn't glorify Jesus, instead it wants Judas to be glorified and justified-but the first shall be last and the last shall be first)The document is believed to be 1700 years old, that means it would have been compiled by the time of cannonization around 326 AD. It was rejected by several scholars who were trying to get books into the cannon not eliminate them. That's because it comes from the gnostics--none of their books got into the bible because like this one they don't meet the criteria.
It isn't prophetic, or relatable to the old testament like other new testament scripture
Romans 1:2 NIV Read this chapterthe gospel he promised beforehand through his prophets in the Holy Scriptures
I think this false gospel is used as deception and not from God. In the REAL gospels it says that Judas was possessed by the devil when he betrayed Christ.
Over all, this gospel glorifies Judas and not Christ and negates christian beliefs. (sorry I won't even consider to post a quote from it you'll have to look it up) We should not be happy about the way this is being presented in the media without equal representation of traditional christian beliefs.
Don't be decieved by what's false!
1 Corintheans 10 2-4,13-15
2I am jealous for you with a godly jealousy. I promised you to one husband, to Christ, so that I might present you as a pure virgin to him. 3But I am afraid that just as Eve was deceived by the serpent's cunning, your minds may somehow be led astray from your sincere and pure devotion to Christ. 4For if someone comes to you and preaches a Jesus other than the Jesus we preached, or if you receive a different spirit from the one you received, or a different gospel from the one you accepted, you put up with it easily enough. .......13For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, masquerading as apostles of Christ. 14And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. 15It is not surprising, then, if his servants masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve.
Like I said it's a false gospel...
No Other Gospel Galationas 1:6-8,10
6I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting the one who called you by the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel 7which is really no gospel at all. Evidently some people are throwing you into confusion and are trying to pervert the gospel of Christ. 8But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let him be eternally condemned!.... 10Am I now trying to win the approval of men, or of God? Or am I trying to please men? If I were still trying to please men, I would not be a servant of Christ.
Serve Christ, know the truth and be ready for battle to defend your faith and not be decieved.
