Other books mentioned in the Bible
Sometimes, cult groups will attempt to justify the existence of newly inspired books (i.e., Book of Mormon) by citing reference to other books mentioned in the Bible. They erringly conclude that because the Bible sometimes mentions another book, that the book is either a lost book of the Bible or it somehow justifies their claim to newly inspired writings.
Just because the Bible references another book does not mean that that book is inspired. The exception, of course, is when the Bible references other inspired books within itself. Nevertheless, these books are not lost books of the Bible. They were never considered inspired.
