@Mendax.

If I must tell you the Koran is not a word of God. It is the word from the god of Mohammed. Why did the god in Koran asked his believers to kill the Jews and Christians? Why did ISlamic clerics asked Salma Rushdie to be killed for writing the Satanic verses?

Is there anywhere in the world where true Islam (koranic Islam) have been able to exist with others in peace? I do not want to go into many other things.

What do you know about Noah, Enoch and Abraham save what you have read in the bible. How do you know that the accounts in the bible are accurate? do you honestly believe that god destroyed the whole earth in a flood saving only Noah and his family and two pairs of each living creature (or is two pairs of each unclean creature and seven pairs of the others)?

As to the christian god being the true god, remember this, the only people who believe that are committed christians. Muslims, Buddhists and believers in others gods claim that their god is the true god as well, and no doubt will claim that their books are inerrant. The arrogance of the believer means that other possibilities are ignored.

The bible contains honest errors, human errors, a lot of doctoring (omissions, additions, twisting etc), a lot of well meant lies, or white lies if you like, plenty speculations and fantasy. It also contains literal things which some people prefer to treat as allegorical and vice versa. But after all these, it contains plenty unarguable truths but whether they are divine truths are a different matter. My major problem with the book is being able to tell which is which. I know many intelligent Christians who think they are liberated by believing that the book as a whole is not from God but they're just as guilty cuz they don't question the parts that suit their point of view. Truth is not good news or bad news. It is simply truth. Falsehood is the same way.

The Bible is and remain the WORD of GOD. Religion is a thing of FAITH and not of proof. Faith is only alive with hope. Live by hope and your questions will be answered in due course.

Those who deny the validity of the bible dont understand that it contains no contradictions.

B.I.B.L.E= Basic Information Before Leaving Earth.

The bible is a booklet of life that shows people how to live their lives from inception to termination. Practical references are Samuel,David,Moses,Jeremiah,Jesus etc whose lives was guided in accordance to the precepts of God

@duroe,

i personally believe that the Qur'an is the word of God and you cannot pick out a historical inaccuracy or an unfulfilled prophecy. As for the program of the creator for his creations, his purpose is clear in the Qur'an, no ambiguities. Thank you

@Zodiac. It is not my responsibility to prove if the Bible is the word of God (not god). The bible is not the word of god but the word of the Self existent, and the creator of heaven and earth- the Almighty God. God does not intend to also prove it to you that the bible is His word- in fact He owe you no explanation as per whatever He has said, written or done.

You are a mere mortal and you do not even have the knowlegde to prove or otherwise of what the word of God is.

My write up is just to contribute to those still very young in their Christisn faith from being confused by people like you.

Certainly you will remember all these when you cross over to the other side if by any means you harden ur heart against God.

If you are a sincere seeker of God, then He will guide you to the truth. Afterall Noah, Enoch, Abraham etc did not have any bible, yet their faith in God is still a challenge to many generations. The issue is SIN and its consequences.

Inerrancy According to Christ

"For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled." (Matthew 5:18)

Here is the commentary of the Lord Jesus on the doctrine of plenary verbal inspiration. Not only were the words of the Bible divinely inspired, but even the very letters! The "jot" was the smallest letter of the Hebrew alphabet (yod, the tenth letter). The[i] "tittle"[/i] was a small horn-like appendage which transformed one Hebrew letter into another. Thus, a stronger statement of absolute verbal inspiration than this could hardly be imagined.

Further, the phrase "in no wise" is actually a double negative in Greek. In New Testament Greek it was used for strong emphasis. According to none other than the Lord Jesus Christ Himself, every word--even every letter--of the "law" must be fulfilled. This certainly includes the books of the Pentateuch--including even the often-maligned and distorted opening chapters of Genesis!

He applied the same principle to other parts of Scripture as well. "The scripture cannot be broken," He said (John 10:35) in the course of an exposition of Psalm 82:6, based on one single word used in the verse, supporting the vital doctrine of His own deity.

It is clear that Christ taught the doctrine of full, verbal inspiration of the Holy Scriptures.  It is sad and inexcusable that so many today who call themselves Christians repudiate this vital teaching of the Lord Jesus by rejecting, diluting, or "interpreting" the plain statements of the Word of God.  And, lest anyone equivocate by suggesting that, since the original writings have all been lost, we no longer can know what the divinely given words may have been, we should remember Christ's promise: "Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away" (Matthew 24:35).  HMM.

@Ogaga, Chaluka.

You have to answer this question: Have you got any other book that could claim the title 'the word of God'?

Which of the books on the earth is so divinely inspired as revealed in accurately fulfilled prophesies and detailed analysis of the program of the creator of heaven and earth regarding all creations?

As per the issue of whether the Bible is the word of God or not considering the so called erros, you have to consider the following;

1. The bible consist of 66 canonical books written by about 40 different authors over 2000years span in two main languages -Aramaic and greek.

2. There had been several attempt to destroy the bible by various 'anti-God' forces, yet the bible still remain with us till today

3. The original 'scrolls' have been translated several times and some of the English versions we now have are 'translations of translations'

4. The bible consist of historical events (recorded so that we in our age could understand the conditions of people living at the time when God made the revelations to men through His holy prophets)

5. The bible also contain visions God gave the prophets recorded in the prophets own language

6. The Bible contain some words or statements directly spoken by God and recorded verbatim by the writers

7. The Bible contain some other word written by God's/divine finger himself e.g the 10 commandments, the writing on the wall in Daniel - yet still subject to translations by humans.

The historical events were recorded by the writers in their own understandings and from what they witnessed and could remember in the events e.g Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.

Yet all these men wrote not with the mind of making money (unlike several authors today) or to make names for themselves but as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.

The inspiritaion of the scriptures has NO ERROR at all.

Whatever 'error' you are seen is either typographical or evolution of languages and translations- all of which were not directly supervised by God and so were subject to men's inperfection.

If anyone wants to cite any error to invalidate the Holy Bible as the word of God, then you need to mention errors in the inspirations and not historical figures or numbers or in nouns, pronouns , verbs as many have been pointing to. Read the prophets and tell us where there is inconsistencies about what they all said about what God showed them.

The Koran was received by one man (Mohammed) and by the word that have been given to Moses before Mohammed the record of one person is not dependable.

As there is no other book known in human history up till date, the only book that could assume the title of 'the written word of God' is the Holy Bible.

I am a christian and would admit that there are contradictions in the bible but then i will like to point out as ya all know that the Holy Bible was not originally written in english which make it subject to mis-translation due to man's endeavour to make available to all so as to aid spreading the good news.

eg 'isi azu' in igbo which means head of fish if translated word 4 word would mean 'head fish' which would not pass the message clearly so also the bible which was translated by different scholars who might hav translated the text from the original bible language to 40 while another author trans his as 4.Remember the bible was authored and translated by several people which subjects it to personal judgement

To them the bible is the inerrant word of god.

In fact, to me, it is not even inspired by god.

NO!!

but it depends on what you call the word of God.

is it the word of God because God revealed every word of it?then no!but if you mean word of God because it talked about God and his style then yes!

but literally the bible is not the word of God but is a compilation of history,opinions of it's authors and a few predictions which have to have been from God.
