I don't' believe in the Bible (written by man and therefore it is NOT infallible) but I have a firm belief in God. I hate labels but since it's a question that usually comes up, I tell them that I am an Eclectic Spiritual Pagan.
Those that tell you that you can't believe in God without believing in the Bible are just ignorant. They have been blinded by religion. I wouldn't pay them much attention b/c nothing you say will make them understand.

Sounds like being a Deist. Not sure if it will completely fit you but might be worth looking into.
As to getting them to understand, in some cases you cannot cause them to change they way they view the world. They have to do it on their own. Just be consistent in your beliefs and openly answer questions if you are wanting to help sway opinions.
