  • The bible is the Inspired Word of God.
    The original language of the OT is Hebrew and of NT Greek
    Adam and Eve 's children mated with each other... bodies were different then they werent yet messed up by sin until further down the generations
    Yes I believe in God

  • inspired means God gave them the words to write. OT is the old testament ( you dont know if this person is familiar with the bible at all )

  • Errors in translation are certainly being found all the time. Scholars now disagree over whether the original Hebrew instructs that "Thou shalt not kill." or "Thou shalt not murder, among many others. Was Mary a "virgin" or merely "a young girl"? The word designating this status was clearly mistranslated. I believe in neither imaginary gods nor books of primative mythology so it doesn't matter to me. You can choose to believe in a god or goddess--there are certainly many to chose from--but it is unwise to take a patchwork of myths and fables such as the bible and accept it as the truth.

  • My advice for you is to do some research. I did, and found that the Bible is remarkably accurate even as compared to ancient scrolls! There are minor scribal errors such as words that are repeated twice or a difference in order such as Christ, Jesus and then scribed in other scrolls Jesus, Christ......but the message of the bible remains the same. The bible is also historically accurate and has even revealed historical information that was not well known.You will always have people who will try to tell you the bible is full of contradiction, myths and mistakes but take any of those falsehoods and research it thouroughly......then you will find out otherwise. Satans greatest mission is to mislead people from knowing and believing the truth. The easiest way for him to do that is to get them to question the beautiful truth of the Bible. praying 4 u

  • I see no one being "nasty" or "mean" in these posts at all so you might want to read with a different tone. Just people answering said question with their opinions. I'm agnostic/atheist so I don't believe in any gods at this time. My status is open to change given new evidence. I've been told several times over that the bible is a collection of stories and thus I treat it as I would any other book of stories. Men wrote it and it cannot be proven that they were sane. Or that they weren't smoking/drinking/other drugs for that matter. While the bible has some good stories with good messages, I do not believe it was inspired by any god. Have a good evening.
