The Bible is a letter written by God to His children. Why do you read the Bible?
How relevant to you, are the contents in another person’s letter to which you ironically respond with negative remarks?
I read the bible as a source of strength, encouragement and direction. I also find something new everytime I open that Book -- without fail. Perhaps it's a matter of manners -- one should always open a letter -- and respond.
Can you elaborate on the first sentence of your question? I'd like you to specifically explain how you know a god "wrote" any part of the Bible. I have read the Bible and found it very interesting. It is the basis for the Jewish historical belief and the Christian religion. It has been tampered with and mis-translated over the centuries. But I like lots of books.
How did the bible come into being? Is it like any other book or novel with regard to origin, worth and significance?
The Greek 'Biblios', means book. The first part of the Anglican Bible is the Old Testament, several books written in Hebrew, translated into Greek. The four books of the New Testament were written by three disciples,(one couldn't write) not God.
Like Angela Blair, I read the Bible for strength, encouragement etc. I find new things as I read more into the Bible. Ultimately, I read the Bible because I want to grow in faith and grow in my relationship with God, I believe that reading and studying the Scriptures can help me to do both.

I believe in a God not necessarily in what the bible discusses

Just wanted to know if there are any Christians here on HubPages. I mean those who believe 100% in the Bible (the canon of 66 books), and that it is the inerrant, infallible, inspired Word of God. Only those who are...
