Why do people think that the Bible was written by God?


Does faith require that you deceive yourself into thinking that the gospel writers are beyond reproach?

    You're the winner here. The Bible undertaking would have been like having several marginally intelligent people each describe the scene of an accident and then attribute their disjointed conclusions to God.

    When you say you've never heard anyone say it, you are either lying or live a very insular existence. I asked the question because I have been around people that have this perception. They actually believe that it is literally the word of God.

    So you can write scriptures and claim the same thing. That God is guiding you, but it wouldn't be so.

    I asked a question is all. Do I have ulterior motives? Yes. Do I have my own ideas that I wear on my sleeve? Yes. Did I know that there would be people like you who can't deal with facts and resort to personal attacks? Yes. So? Doesn't change facts.

    See Attikos. Now it has been proven that you don't speak for the world. Nevermind the factory that prints copies of it, it's well established that the Bible is written by multiple human authors. Not even just one unquestioned source.

    Hardly good literature since no conventions are followed. It would offer historical insight at best, but people are told not to interpret it and it has simply become something that has a hold on inflexible people who live inside their own vacuum.

    So everybody who thinks they are reserving their faith for God are actually putting faith in men who have no credibility whatsoever. Nobody has actually spoken to God.

    The way the Bible flows? There is no other piece of literature ever in the history of Earth with more contradictions and lacking in continuity quite like the Bible which is what happens anytime more than one person with different agendas contributes.
