The Bible is.....

1. the Word of God, infallibly true, 100% literally true as well?
2. the Word of God, infallibly true, but NOT 100% literally true?
3. like Aesop's Fables...fantastic stories, full of truths and lessons, but not literally true?
4. a book of mythology...nothing more?
5. other....do tell....

  • A book of contradictions and FALLABILITY. which I feel has NOTHING to do with the True God. God IS infallible. The bible makes Him FALLIBLE. it is unfortunate that those who wrote and contributed to the book let thier free will run wild and wrote in bigotry, hatred, and other horrible things that were thier own, NOT OF GOD

  • i think its number 3 but unfortunatley the people of organized crimes use it more like a weapon to instill fear and cause war and be judgmental of other people.

  • I believe it is a way for men to allow us to see faith/God through their eyes and understanding. I believe that there is Mythos (not mythology as it is understood today, being fictional), especially in the OT, which serves to reveal a truth that isn't found in one moment in history, but that is greater than one specific time or place or happening. I believe that there is truth, but not that it is infallible or the word of God, or that it is absolute or literally true. Parts may be, but it isn't as a whole, IMO.
