Ok, since it's impossible to portray tone and inflection properly in typing, I'm going to ask you all to be open minded before you read this question. I am not being sarcastic, I am genuinely curious...
I see many say that God says that the bible is the true word of God. 100% true and accurate. Dictated by the spirit of God himself into the men that wrote it.
Is this something that the Church came up with, or is it actually in the bible? Where? What verse? What is the exact quote, in context please?
If it is actually in there, why do you trust the word of the authors that it is true? I find it akin to saying that there must be sparkly vampires, cause a whole series of books told me so...
(*note ... I am not thinking of converting, please to not attempt to try. I am attempting to learn more about your faith, and why you have such conviction in something that you have no way of knowing for a fact.)

Man wrote the Bible which means that everything written in the Bible is man's interpretation. Common sense is knowing the difference between good and evil. I feel the same way about some religous rituals. Religous rituals are man made. Who is to say whether or not a religous ritual will be the answer to open the gates of Heaven? BTW - I was raised Catholic.
