  • A book of religious doctrine believed by Christians.
  • It's a great ghost story but nothing more.
  • +5. The Bible is the Holy Word of God. It is with out error, it needs no more books to add to it, and the bible is God breathed. Any questions ?
  • I'm starting to believe its a collection of fairy tales.
  • Dont have one, cant see it from where I am at.
  • A complete perversion of the past.
  • It is THE Book to live your life by. What a wonderful gift it is.
  • Nice fairy tales. Honestly it's a good book and in simple terms explains a lot about human nature. I recommend everybody read it from a sociological standpoint. Plus a lot of the stories are or might be true. So from a historical record there is a lot of truth there. As a book describing real event's, I would say Homer's work has more reality to it.
  • I believe that the Bible is the inspired word of God, who allowed men in both the OT & NT to mess with it. Why? I think to make us study harder for the Truth.
  • I think it's a compilation of what mankind BELIEVES about God. I'm a Christian, don't get me wrong. The Bible is a good book. BUT, there ARE errors in it. God doesn't make mistakes, man does. And man wrote the book. It's not the infinite and complete word of God. If you want God's word on something, ask Him yourself and pray. He will give you the answer that is right for YOU. People are different. There is no such thing as 'the infinite word'. There can't be. People are created too differently. That's how God meant it to be.
  • The bible has been altered so many times you can't tell which is which.
  • Interesting, no, fascinating work of fiction.
  • It's a long novel
  • A really freakin' long book that is really freakin' hard to get through, but is really freakin' important. +2
  • all religiion or anything aside. its a good book.
  • There is a fundamental difference between truth and fact. It is true that God exists but I cannot prove it. It is a fact that President Bush said he invaded Iraq because of weapons of mass destruction but it is not true. Catholics believe that the Bible teaches truth about God but it is not historically factual at all times. The Bible's primary purpose is to teach us the truth about God and His (or Her) love for us and how we should love each other, not to teach facts about history or science. All scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching, for refutation, for correction, and for training in righteousness, so that one who belongs to God may be competent, equipped for every good work. (2 Timothy 3:16-17) Here is a statements on the Bible by Evangelical and Catholic Christians together, "Your Word is Truth" (2002) http://www.firstthings.com/article.php3?id_article=2058 For more information, see the Catechism of the Catholic Church, section 105 and following: http://www.usccb.org/catechism/text/pt1sect1chpt2.shtml With love in Christ.
  • God's love letter to man.
  • It is a collection of myths that is used by men to control other men.
  • The Jewish-Christian bible is a collection of torn papyrus scraps surviving from ancient Jewish tribes of several thousand years ago. Many more such fragments have been lost, including the 'lost gospels': http://images.google.com/images?hl=en&safe=off&um=1&sa=1&q=%27lost+gospels.%27&btnG=Search+Images These boxes of scraps have been passed down through the centuries, copied and recopied hundreds of times by monks and clerics using hollow marsh grass reeds or bamboo stems for pens. But God was watching over them, so no errors ever occurred. :) The "official" list of surviving papyri (books) has been determined not by God but by the administrators (priests, bishops, popes) of the various churches, long after Jesus was dead and buried. Some books were rejected by all the Christian churches. On one hand, the churches assure us that the papyrus scraps are the Word of God; on the other hand, the same churches have sifted through the papyri, accepting some and rejecting others. So "God wrote the Bible," but church administrators have decided which of God's Holy Words are approved for us to read. :) Here are some samples of the papyri that make up the Christian bible:   http://nobeliefs.com/DarkBible/GospelFragment.gif   http://www-user.uni-bremen.de/~wie/Egerton/eger-1-verso.jpg   http://www.southridgeworship.com/papyrus_large.jpg   http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/ni/papyrus.jpg   http://www.crc-internet.org/images2003/Fragments-papyrus.jpg
