The Bible is the Word of God.
"(The)Bible did not consist of merely ten authors, but forty. It was not written in one generation, but over a period of 1,500 years; not by authors with the same education, culture and language, but with vastly different education, many different cultures, from three continents and three different languages, and finally not just one subject but hundreds.

And yet the Bible is a unity. There is complete harmony, which cannot be explained by coincidence or collusion. The unity of the Bible is a strong argument in favor of its divine inspiration. The unity of the Scriptures is only one reason among many which supports the Bible’s claim to be the divine Word of God"

hunterseat, I like you, but we must be reading a diff book....complete harmony and unity?
Sure sometimes...some parts are pure poetry, such inspiration and wisdom....but, those 2 would not be words I would use, without getting many examples as to why not.

LOL. Whatever "complete harmony" you can muster from that collection of old parchments most certainly CAN be attributed to multiple editors over multiple centuries - polishing the script.

It's amazing how naive some Christians can be.

I think we all just have to come to some sort of acceptance that some Christian people believe the Bible is literally "The Word of God" and other Christian people do not believe that to be true.

We aren't going to change one another's minds.

It's crazy how God was silent for 400 years between the old and new testaments. Yet the Savior is found throughout. And it's still a best seller after all these years, wait, no. Decades. No wait. CENTURIES. And it's alive! It's crazy how the Word can give you whatyou need when you need it. Hermeneutics. A beautiful thing.
I'm sorry you're missing the joy that's free for the taking.
I'm not in it enough and that's my loss. I'm convicted and hope to do better.

I find more things in the Bible than just joy...I don't find 'complete harmony or unity', is all....just sayin.

[It] is syncretistic in nature, as it contains all the various beliefs and perceptions of men over the centuries. Nothing inerrant or infallible about it. Hell, they even included an underworld of pain and suffering, as if demons weren't enough. You don't believe a loving God would come up with all that, do you?

The only unity I see is people being gullible to a certain extent.

You cannot be a Christian without the Bible. God and His Word are inseparable. You people are simply wasting your time with vain religion. You're trying to get into Heaven some other way.
