The issue with discussing editing the Bible is rather ironic because that's exactly what the Council of Nicea did when they created the Bible canon! They decide which books were 'divinely inspired' and what was not. Manuscripts of the Gospels have shown to be altered and in some cases forged. How does one decide what book is from God? Is Apocrypha considered too? What about Gnostic texts? Looking into how the Bible came to be really is fascinating. There was clearly never a 'one true version'.
There’s this myth in Christianity that a sqaud of dudes got together in a darkened room and made isolated executive decisions about which books to canonize, but the choices made at Nicea were motivated much more by which books were already in widespread use in Christian churches, and which books were considered useful and truthful by the standards of the surviving memory and oral tradition about the teachings of Jesus. Also there are Christian churches out there who don’t adhere to all of the Nicean council’s choices. Some Christians consider the Apocrypha canon, or semi canon, and the Catholic church has preserved a long tradition of recognizing it. There are Christians who consider themselves Gnostic in some way or study the Ghostic gospels, like the awesome scholar Elaine Pagels, who has a lot of great books of Gnosticism out. Bringing in issues of translation and reception history problematize the canon even more. A classic Seminary Asshole Move is to respond to someone referencing the Bible with “which Bible”? It wont win you friends and I don’t recommend it but hey, it’s not wrong.
So the canon is really more of a best-guess scenario motivated by a sincere desire for Christian unity, orthodoxy, and clear teaching. However, I think the messiness of the Christian canon should always steer us clear of biblioidolatry, and remind us that knowledge of God can never be reduced to a single book. It should also always keep up hungry for new information while nurturing our ability to be discerning about various truth claims we hear on a daily basis. Biblical engagement has never been a passive game. You’ve got to be willing to put your back into it and get your hands dirty.
