The Bible may have been written by men but they wrote what God instructed them to. Jesus said in John 5:39 that, "You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; it is these that testify about Me;" Then in John 12:49 Jesus made it clear... "For I did not speak on My own initiative, but the Father Himself who sent Me has given Me a commandment as to what to say and what to speak.
Again, in John 17:8 Jesus said, "For I have given to them the words which you gave me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out from you, and they have believed that you did send Me."

Romans 10:17, "Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God." Romans 10:13, "...for, everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved." 2 Timothy 3:16-17 says, "All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work."

If you don't believe the Bible is true then you have no hope of salvation because it tells us who Jesus is and about His plan of salvation. I hear people say all the time, "There are too many contradictions in the Bible" yet when I ask them for proof, they can't ever provide it. The attempts they have made are always verses taken out of context.

I know a lot of people here who don't believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God. But I fully believe that it is. If you read psalm 119 and all the scriptures listed above. we should use the Bible as the standard for our faith. If we don't have a standard then we can be decieved. We have a higher truth.
The Word of God is alive-- it give us faith, it changes our hearts, it reveals to us the heart and mind of God, it directs our steps. Jesus even calls Himself, "The Word of God" --God's word is powerful and I fully believe that holy men of God wrote as they were completely directed by the Holy Spirit.

Are you all referring to the entire Bible, or just the New Testament? I could point out many things in the Old Testament that have grieved my spirit.
