For those of you who were missing my religious streak.. Call it the time of year, but I felt the need to post another one.
So here's my question. Is the Bible God's Word? I believe that the Bible is God's Word as interpreted by man. (Guess I should check with the Catholic Church on that, I might have just excommunicated myself.) I will go as far as to say that some of it is God instructing what to say in certain passages, obviously the 10 commandments falls into this, but I am also willing to add the passages where the prophets say that God "told them to say..." There may be other examples, but you get my drift. I also believe that the parts of the New Testament that quote Jesus can be considered the Word directly.
What sparked this, is someone recently saying that the Bible was the True Word of God and should be taken as the absolute Truth. I don't think that alot of the Old Testament can be taken as the absolute Truth because quite a bit of it was creating Jewish laws which Jesus generally discounted during his time.
