This is not to troll or to start an argument I really would like to understand people’s views on this because I cannot seem to get it to click in my head.
We all know that people are FAR from perfect right?? So how can you take the bible as "the word of God" when MEN wrote it?? Are you just convinced that none of these men put their own personal views in the book or is something else?? I have been struggling with my faith for a while now so if anyone can help me I would like to hear your thoughts. Thank you

The Bible was physically written by human men, yes. But they were Godly men, hand picked by God himself to complete the task. Although I'm sure the writings reflect their individual personality as far as style goes, the content was divinely inspired by God and the writers were prompted by the Holy Spirit as to what exactly to write. I believe with all my heart that the Bible is the inspired, infallible, living Word of God, and I believe it is totally true and relevant to every aspect of my life. I have no problem whatsoever taking it to heart 100%.
