    Word of God as translated correctly. Throughout the years, the word of God has been recorded through the prophets. Because men are not perfect and some revisions have been made, I believe the Bible to be the word of God to all of us, as it has been translated correctly.

    A centuries-old contrived chauvinistic, misogynistic fantasy written by MEN, (and I mean MEN, not "mankind"), in order to persuade and convince followers for purposes of fear and control.
    Sorry, I know that's not a popular view, and I'm sure I'll catch lots of flak, but, sadly,  it is the truth.
      How do I know?  Well, my husband is a licensed minister,  (yes, he went to an actual seminary, it's not a 'pay a fee and get a license online with no study' license), and this is what he learned in his studies.
    His lessons there merely backed up the conclusions I had come to on my own years before.

      What do YOU mean, it's NOT a popular view. You've succinctly said what many people are AFRAID to say.More intelligent, educated people are coming to this realization.

    a book written by "inspired" writers about someone who was jealous, frightening, and judgmental in the first half; the second part was written at least 40-90 years after the birth. In both sections it is gender bias as how many women are put in a positive light? 4 or 5--better yet, I'll even go 7 to be nice.

    The Word of God.The Word of God. The Word of God. (I had to repeat this twice because my answer was considered too short).
