    Some feel and believe that men are the authors of the Bible. Others believe that God is the sole Author of the Bible. What do you think or believe is the case?

        Both the Hebrew Scriptures and the Greek Scriptures were inspired by God Jehovah.

          How do you know?  Because the writers said they were "inspired"?

        paarsurrey, the Christian Holy Bible. The whole Bible from Genesis to Revelation is Authored by Jehovah God (2nd Timothy 3:16-17).

          LOL  Doubt you will get much answer - that comment was made well over a year ago and I haven't seen Paar around for some time now.

    It's interesting that you would ask that question and then post a link to a JW video. Since the JW changed crucial wording within the book, to push their particularly unique ideology, I would say man wrote the JW Bible.

      It's interesting that you would comment on something that you really know nothing about. I already know that God is the Author of His Word the Bible even though He used men to pen His thoughts and words. My question is directed to those who believe one way or another concerning who the Author is of the Bible.
      The video supports my scriptural viewpoint  concerning who the Author of the Bible is and I have chosen to share it with fellow hubbers.

      I don't expect you or others like you to agree with me when it comes to my beliefs and faith, that's your prerogative. I simply post what I believe in or believe to be based on God's Word the Bible.

        If you already know, somehow, that God controlled the minds and pens of Emperor Constantine and his group or powerful church personalities, why do you ask?

        But I would ask, in return, if God was the author (regardless of the tools He used), why are there so many egregious errors in scripture?  Did God make multiple errors?  Did He seek to deceive His people?  Has someone else after Constantine changed scripture?

          What type of error are you talking about?

            Start with Genesis and the tale of creation.   Then add in the tale of Adam and Eve, followed by Noah and the worldwide flood that never happened.

    Anyone with Any common sense Knows that Quinton Terentino wrote it just after he wrote 'Pulp Fiction' and if you look carefully at the similarities it's clear as a San Francisco fall day...there are even elements of 'Kill Bill' through out the OT...if you look at it the right way... smile

    The texts assembled into the Bible were written by many different people.  Whether you consider them the direct instruments of God or inspired by God is a matter of personal faith.

    wilderness - I don't believe you have an educated view of the Bible.  The Bible itself is the best commentary on the Bible.  There are enough clues in the Bible to indicate the reality of what's written.  When secular people come up with specious explanations for life originatinating on Mars (Discover magazine) or aliens building the pyramids I believe it's the secular viewpoint that is fanciful.  Mathematicians (intelligent design) have show that even a single celled organism could not have arisen spontaneously even with the huige time-frame evolutionists propose.  Also evolutionists have show that every human being is descended from one man and one woman.  The gene pool of mankind is one of the most narrow of any species on the planet.

    And the Bible says that God never changes.  And shows that mankind has never changed.  It is relevant to today if we focus on relationships.  The author and myself have a personal relationship with Jesus and take great comfort in knowing God (Father, Son, and Spirit).

      Fair enough - I don't believe you have an educated view of science and reality.  You speak of specious arguments for aliens building the pyramids - which almost certainly did not happen - yet turn right around and speak of an alien building the entire universe.  This is not indicative of someone that understands either the scientific method of discovery OR the reality around us.

      Nor have mathematicians ever shown that life (single celled or not) could not have arisen spontaneously, for no matter what assumptions are made, no matter what premises are chosen, the probability of something happening - anything at all that does not violate natural law (which we do not know everything about) - is greater than zero.  While perhaps extremely improbable it is still not impossible, and when we add that we do not know the proper assumptions or premises to make (we don't know the exact conditions or circumstances of the beginning of life or the exact route evolution took and never will) it becomes impossible to assign any probability at all.  At best we can estimate a probability, but that figure will always be above zero, making it possible.

      No, evolutionists have NOT shown that every human is descended from one man and one woman - that is the claim of religion, not science.  Indeed, we find Neanderthal and other failed species' DNA in ours, indicating that long after "man" existed our species was still mixing with other species.

      If you think mankind has not evolved (changed) through the history of the species you are very sadly mistaken.  We can see changes in just the last few thousand years, let alone the hundreds of thousands before that.

      You can pretend you have a personal relationship with Jesus as you wish, but until you can produce that sentient, non-human ET, or any other solid evidence of a relationship, there is no reason to believe you.  Though I DO believe that your religion gives you great comfort - religions have done that for millenia and will likely continue to do so.

        It should be apparent that "intelligent design" does not meet any of these definitions of "religion."  http://www.intelligentdesignnetwork.org … ligion.htm
        No link between apes and humans  http://www.intelligentdesignnetwork.org … ligion.htm
        The second surprise is that our last universal genealogical ancestor might have been very recent, perhaps just 3,000 years ago.14 Informally extrapolating this to all humans in recorded history, common ancestors might be situated more recently than 10,000 years ago. http://henrycenter.tiu.edu/2017/06/a-ge … evolution/

          "As we don't know the details of how evolution happened, it is clear that it is too complex and never happened at all; that goddunnit instead".

          When I got to that point I quit reading; the ignorance of basic reasoning makes it extremely unlikely there is anything of value to follow.  As a consequence I didn't even see that there is no connection between apes and humans; false on the face of it as humans, along with 4 other species, make up the group termed apes; we are an ape and to say we have no connection with ourselves is ridiculous.  I might note in passing that Neanderthal was also an "ape" and that anyone with European genes probably has Neanderthal (ape) genes.  Plus, of course, that we all (gorilla, chimpanzee, bonobo, orangutan and humans) shared a common ancestor long, long ago.

          I very highly doubt that the aborigines of Australia, or the jungle tribes of South America, the remote villages in Tibet and Siberia, are all (that's 100%) descended from someone that lived just 3,000 years ago.  The speed of those genes spreading over just the last thousand years would be beyond belief.  And certainly those peoples did not originate from matings between one male and one female just 3,000 years ago, for they all existed, in isolation, long before that.
