If I told you to write my name, and you did, it would still be my name. It would not be your name just because you wrote it on a piece of paper. God used others to write His Word but it is still His Word. The Bible is the perfect guide to salvation. It isn't a perfect history book, because it isn't meant to be a history book. God could write history better than anyone, but there wouldn't be enough volumes in the world to contain it all. And a lot of it, although interesting, isn't important to your spiritual life.

The Holy Bible was written through men being borne by the Holy Spirit. They were written by men but those men did not write what they wanted. It is the Holy Spirit which directed them to write what God wanted to be written. The Word of God is perfect, but of course there are errors committed by men such as typographical errors in printing, etc.

Bible is divided in to two,one is Old Testament another is New Testament.Old one is same like that of Jews. New testament is the history of Jesus thirst, Church activities, and doctrines for the Church of God.It is fully Word of God.I believe it. you may read it without prejudice you will understand its precepts.

The Bible is the word of God-- it came from God therefore, it is perfect, because God is perfect. The perfect word of God was received then by imperfect man- so that's the risk of interpretation per se. But as far as I know, if man interprets the thought the way God sees it in His word, then no big deal about it.

2 Timothy 3:16 states that the Scriptures are "God breathed". God spoke and men wrote. You get different styles because each person had their own style of writing what they heard God speak to them. God didn't dictate, He gave inspiration. The original Scriptures were written in Aramaic, Hebrew, and Greek. I believe in their original form, as do most theologians, they are the inspired, flawless Word of God. Again, as someone mentioned, there may be differences in reporting stories, numbers, and such, but it is perfect. In translations, there may be flaws, as translators have had to interpret words, and when translating any language to another, some words don't always translate perfect or exact.

GOD inspires the persons (like Samuel, Peter, Paul, etc.) to write. that is one purpose and function of HIS HOLY SPIRIT. when i get to know the verse, i will send it to you. BRother, the Bible is true and perfect! make it personal and you will later realize and feel that the Bible points you and us to the saving grace of GOD, through JESUS CHRIST. once we receive JESUS as our LOrd and Savior, HE will give us HIS HOLY SPIRIT to help us understnad all the things that is written in the Bible. once we do not have the HOLY SPIRIT, that is the time we question the reliability of the Bible. ask your friend or someone who are Christians, those who have a personal relationship with JESUS CHRIST and you will find out!!!! the Bible is perfect!
