No Bible discussions?

This is exactly the answer to the OP. There isn't universal ("catholic") agreement on which books belong in the deutero-canon.
You think this is bad? You should look into Orthodoxy lol.

I should have said "to @Catholic Crusader's post". The op was much more general.

I did a search for how many books are in the apocrypha, and of the first 10 hits I saw 5 different answers.
There's no apocrypha in the Catholic Bible, but the books you're alluding to number seven. There are 73 books in the Catholic Bible, 66 in the Protestant Bible, and Orthodoxy has a range.

"Apocrypha" means "hidden", so I guess they're hidden amongst the rest of the books. 😉

There could be a hundred and four books in the bible, but if you don't adhere to its teachings, it is worthless.
And if you do adhere to its teachings, but you do not believe in it; still worthless, yes?
