I wonder how so many of you can believe that the bible really is the word of God. What proof do you have that it really is the word of God? I mean, i know that's what it says in the bible, but the bible is not scientific or historical proof. Is this the part that you just "believe"? I'm just a little confused on this. I don't understand how someone can take a book and go "oh look. this book says it was written by God so it must be true!"
People always think i'm trying to bash. I AM NOT trying to bash. I'm trying to understand. I was a Pagan, but now i don't really know what i am. I think i might be venturing on the edge of Agnostic or Atheist. But who knows? I might go Christian if someone can actually be nice instead of claiming that i'm trying to stir up sh!t or that my questions are stupid.
I appreciate all thoughtful responses.

The Bible is the true Word of God. The more you learn about it the more it will blow your mind and you will be beyond convinced. Since you are curious about it, you should really do some research, rather than just writing it off as impossible. The article by Charlie Campbell "Evidence for the Trustworthiness of the Bible" is really really good. It goes through how fulfilled prophesy, archeological discoveries, the internal consistency, external verification, the Bible's amazing scientificÂ accuracy and foresight, manuscript reliability, honesty about moral failures, willingness of Jesus' disciples to suffer for it's testimony, and it's transforming power for good.
