The First Council of Nicea, 325 AD, had many interesting discussions and decided many things, some of the controversial even today. But they did not discuss the cannon of scripture of make a decision on it.

Books that came into the cannon a writing had to be
1) Of unquestioned Apostolic authorship or at least written on the authority of an Apostle
2) Generally read in church every where as scripture.
3) Generally in agreement with the teaching that had been received.

Though by the time of the Council there was not a published official list, most of the books of the current NT were read every where as scripture.. There were some read in certain regions only but the general agreement on which were in and out did not come until a seventy five or a hundred or so years later.

Many of the books on your list were quite well respected in the Early Church but every one knew the authors came after the Apostles (Epistles of Ignatius). Some were written earlier but not read in Church as Scripture,. (1 Clement). Some were In LaLa land, (The Lost Gospel According to Peter)

The NT Scripture was read in Church every Sunday, the same list (cannon from the Greek) was read on a rotating schedule, which varied locally, but the same list in each local church for over 225 or more more. The members knew what to expect and would have protested strongly at a change. We have accounts of bishops having major protests for something a simple as using a different translation.

The books in the NT are generally what has been read as scripture in Church for 1900 years or so.

I've read most of the books on that list many are very profitable and all are interesting in their own way. I would recommend starting with Ignatius.

Did any of those you read cover Reincarnation?

Specifily I do not remeber.

"Transmigration of souls" as it was called was loudly and repeatedly denoumced as contrary to to the faith.

The ideas was held by several other religions, but loudly rejected as incompatible with the faith.

This is so great am alive to testify the good work of hemp oil and its miracle healing.

In April 10th 2012 i was diagnosed of breast cancer and bone cancer when the doctor told me it was already too late for me, that i have only ten months on earth to live. I shared tears and all hope was gone thinking that i will just sleep and go just like that.

My mom came to visit me in Serbia two months later and bought me some hemp oil product saying that it works well on cancer, ever since she told me about the benefits and encourage me to use the medication. I have been on treatment for the past 4 months now which was the required treatment plan for me.
Last week, I went to hospital to do my test and to God be the glory my cancer was not found there anymore. I have been cured with Rick Simpson hemp oil which my mother had bought for me.

My family in forever grateful to Rick Simpson Cannabis Oil.

Last week my mom gave me his email and phone number which i contacted him in person and thank him for the life saving. Below information.
