  1. Of course I do. Depth and novelty of ideas. A book that answers all questions of the meaning of being. It answers these questions much more fully and logically than any other philosophical or religious teaching. The Bible is the work of various authors of various epochs, and how God is gradually revealed in it from book to book, the essence of being is revealed. The book that turned the world upside down. The book that turned the history of mankind upside down. The latter is most relevant to the Gospel. Do you want to tell me that these 4 books were “written”: a taxman/collector, two fishermen and a provincial doctor?

  2. What is the divine nature? The FIRMAMENT? This is clearly the view of a primitive PERSON. What, God didn't have time to educate his creatures? The elementary structure of the world HE CREATED? Not up to the atoms and molecules THAT THE EARTH IS A BALL!

  3. I don't believe in the Bible at all, because there is not a single proof of the existence of God, the soul, the afterlife, etc .And there are fairy tales about the creation of the world. This is a departure from the main question: “The lack of evidence for the existence of God is a direct proof that he does not exist. There is no other way to prove what doesn't exist. There is no god, and there are religions that are based on the majority's fear of death. and a minority is adept at exploiting this fear.

  4. I don't believe in the Bible at all ( some nonsense is written in such a language and logic that interpreters are needed .. funny…). Because

  5. 2 Timothy 3: 16-17:
    ₁₆ AllScripture is given by inspiration of God and is profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness,
    so that the man of God may be perfect, prepared for every good work.
    … the quote contains a hollow answer to the question.
    … why, because there is nothing like it in the world, consistently and correctly stated teaching that leads us to God in Christ Jesus the Savior, …

  6. You need to specify which Bible you are referring to. The Old Testament or the New. The old is the holy books of Judaism, the New is the Gospel for Christians. He is not recognized as divine by the Jews, and Jesus himself is considered an ordinary person who imagined something, fantasized, said too much and eventually fell under the highest measure. Do you, the author of the question, suggest that both Bibles have a divine nature? Both ours and yours, so to speak? Or do you not distinguish between them at all?

  7. I don't believe it on the following grounds:

    1. It is typical for a person to strive in one way or another to” concretize “his ideas, no matter how fantastic they may be, and to” concretize “the object of faith, this or that religious teaching is used, in the divine nature of which the believer is forced to believe otherwise his connection with the object of faith will be broken by virtue of its”objectification”. That is why Christian priests insist on the “inspiration” of the Holy Scriptures. Its creators supposedly arrived “in the spirit” like the author of Ecclesiastes.

    2. The very beginning of the book of Genesis of the Old Testament: we read the words written about God in the third person, although there could not have been a witness to the creation of the world in principle, This only indicates that the creation myth was “written” by people much later than the “event”itself. Also in the Old Testament there is a whole book of Deuteronomy, which tells about the miraculous discovery of “scrolls” with a record of the commandments of God, as if restoring the tablets of Moses that were lost in the vicissitudes of the Babylonian captivity, along with the Ark of the Covenant itself, in which they were kept. Even if the Mosaic tablets were written down under the dictation of God, they would hardly fit the entire Torah Pentateuch, which formed the basis of the Old Testament, otherwise the stone tablets would simply be too heavy and would be much larger in size than the famous Rosetta stone. And this is just an analysis of the Old Testament text.

    3. Biblical scholars long ago discovered the multiplicity of “primary sources” that formed the basis of the Holy Scriptures: this is the Jahvist-a collection of Hebrew myths and traditions and the Priestly Code-a corpus of hymns, rituals, and legal regulations, and it is quite possible that later chronicles and chronicles such as the Paralepomenon, the Book of Judges, the Book of Jubilees (later withdrawn during the canonization of the Old Testament as part of the Bible, and so on, and so on, and so on…).

    4. When we talk about the Bible now, we should keep in mind that there is simply no single Bible that is universal for all Christians, and therefore the divinity of each of the versions is not obvious. Modern Bibles are the result of multiple translations of their texts, and with each translation, semantic aberrations inevitably occur-distortions that only increase at each stage, as if “deifying” and humanizing the text.

  8. No. Because the concept of “divine nature” is meaningless.

    The Bible was written by people in pursuit of their own interests. Then it was rewritten by other people, making changes and corrections. This was done in connection with current social trends.

    What is the divine nature here? These are all worldly matters that are not connected with God.

  9. It is impossible not to believe in the divine nature of the Bible, because the nature of its texts is prophetic and surprisingly logical.

    After a careful and gracious reading of the Bible, you can't help but come to the conclusion that it was written solely to convey to a person one single thought-REPENT!

    Where, in the Old Testament, there is an argument about what and why we should repent, and in the New-how to create a worthy fruit of repentance!

    To gain the Trust of God, live in the afterlife forever…. in the abodes of God's Love … in Paradise. That is, to return to God, restoring the connection that was once lost with Him … mutual Love.

  10. Yes, the Bible is a book from God and the text of the Bible contains a lot of encrypted information. After 5 years of deciphering the Bible, I am fully convinced that the author of the Bible is God himself. I can prove to all of humanity that the Bible is the main book of all of humanity and the Bible has always been the “announcement” of the future of all of humanity.Amen to that!!!

  11. 2 Timothy 3: 16,17 says, ” All Scripture is inspired by God and is profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, so that the man of God may be fully qualified for every good work.”
    40 men spent fifteen hundred years writing the Bible motivated by the holy spirit.
    What do you mean by divine nature? You can't heal from touching it,there are no magic spells in it. This is just a book with words from God, with a great content of a Father's letter to his children. And if we obey the father we are happy

  12. I consider the ideas contained in the Bible to be divine in nature, but not the book itself with many texts. God or Angels didn't whisper words to the authors in gone, just as Sacred texts didn't materialize out of nowhere by themselves. The Old and New Testaments are many books. Different ones. Written By People. Different ones. And at different times. At different times, this also means-after a long time from the moment of the events described. The authors most often and most likely did not witness the described events and recorded them from words (possibly and probably also not direct witnesses of the events). The texts of the Bible exist in different forms and in different languages. The most ancient ones are more or less disjointed. In ancient Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic. Even these texts were later corrected and brought into a more or less unified general form. With difficulty. The Bible for most of you is probably a translation from a translation, at best. But most likely it is a Bible that has been translated into four or five consecutive translations.

    When I came across this, I decided the following for myself: The Bible is ideas and you need to extract ideas from it, like ore from rocks. I believe that following words literally and focusing on letters, recognizing their sacred literal meaning, is not the right way to learn the Bible's truths. To consider it heresy and seriously argue over the change of a letter in a word is the height of frivolity, because both letters and words have already been changed a huge number of times, translations, translations, translations.

  13. I think that the Bible is given to us (people) from the information network of the universe. It exists there as a kind of motivator of the mind, and was “dictated” to people when they were ready to perceive it and take it into action. When I read it for the first time (at the age of 40!), the first thing I realized was that IT couldn't have been written by a human.

  14. I believe. But, more precisely, in the divinely inspired nature. That is, not in the complete rightness and truth, but in receiving inspiration, information from above.
    I believe because I see certain spiritual laws reflected on a very deep level. I see a very solid and living figure of Christ. I see things that respond to my understanding of holiness, purity, and right (righteous) actions. I see descriptions of concepts and phenomena that are difficult for human consciousness to understand. Therefore, I do not think that all this could have been written simply by writers or a collective people's author. This knowledge has a connection with the Higher.

  15. Because the Bible contains prophecies that were fulfilled exactly without exaggeration. It sets a level of morality that has been absolute perfection for mankind for 2000 years.

  16. The question is not very correct. I don't believe in the Bible, because Christianity is the faith of slaves, and the Bible is a set of rules for slaves. Everything that surrounds us and ourselves is of a divine nature, but there are a lot of gods, so it is better to ask-which god is of a divine nature? Christianity is ruled by the god Yahweh, but the god Yahweh is not the most important god on Earth, for example, the god Perun is higher than Yahweh and controls all the gods on Earth, but although Perun is the highest god on Earth,there are many other gods who are higher than him.

  17. Yes.

    Because the Christian, and in the prototype, the Jewish teaching is the only one of its kind sustained legally.

    Every human being is already sinful at conception, as an inheritance from Adam.

    The wages of sin: definitely death.

    Jesus took upon Himself the sin of the world by dying on the cross in our stead, shedding His own blood.

    In no other teaching is there a real Redeemer who would pay with his life instead of mine.

    And if there is no Redeemer , there is no forgiveness or salvation from God's just judgment.

    That is, everything else is meaningless because it doesn't work.

    But this is at the beginning of the journey.

    And then, in the process, you get to know God better and He becomes closer to you – in fact, your own Father.

    And this is not just a text, even if it is perfectly legal – it is a relationship.

  18. Bozhesvtvo, Bozhenka, Bozhye, and so on. to God does not matter in the slightest.

    GOD is humanity,in all its manifestations.

    So, the author of the question should clarify the question – “the divine nature of the Bible” or one of the gods had a hand in it.Like Sabaoth, the Lord God, Jehovah, Allah, Krishna, Buddha, Satan, or any of the other great losers.

    I remind you that all current gods have extremely limited mental abilities. The proof is that there are great and small troubles on Earth, and the gods don't care about anything.It is truly said that “the seven nurses (gods) have a child without an eye”

  19. Yes. I believe you. Because I tried to apply one biblical principle. And I got a positive result. Then the second principle – and again all is well. For example: “Let every man be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger, for the wrath of man does not work out the righteousness of God.”How to apply this principle in life. For example, do not argue with children or adults if they do something wrong, as you think. It is better to keep silent, not to waste your and their nerves in vain. They still want to do what they think is right. And the fact that someone keeps silent, it will help to preserve peace in the family, which is more important than any quarrel. And it pleases God. Try it out!!!!!!!!!! It helps!!!!!!!!! Why does it help? Because it says: “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God and is profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, so that the man of God may be perfect, equipped for every good work.”This is proof that the Bible is a book from God.

  20. As a representative of Orthodox Christianity, I first of all know that the text of the Bible is the result of synergy, that is, the joint activity of God and man. God revealed this or that information to people, and later people recorded it using the conceptual apparatus that was available to the ordinary person of their place of residence and era. For example, Ap. Paul received a revelation from God while still a persecutor of Christians, but later preached and wrote epistles in which he explained the meaning of revelation to his contemporaries so that they could understand. In fact, he translated “unspeakable verbs” into a language that a person could understand. To understand the belief in Divine revelation, one must simply compare prophecies and history. To understand that the texts of the Bible were not written by some “magic” method in which the authors served only as “typewriters” for God, you must again carefully read the texts themselves. Writing styles vary from author to author. The shepherds did not shy away from common curses, the nobles expressed themselves pompously…

  21. I do not believe the one who claimed the divine nature of the Bible, I consider his statement unsubstantiated. The divine nature of the Bible ends here.

  22. No, God is a hypothesis. The Bible as a text is not devoid of errors, which gives rise to the desire to interpret and comment on it, which is ridiculous for the perfect Word of God.

  23. Yes! there are a number of reasons for this.1)It has been around for more than 3,500 years.The first 5 books were written by Moses, approximately 3,500 years ago.The last one was written by the Apostle John more than 1,900 years ago.It was written by about 40 men who were faithful to God.Many of them didn't know each other because they lived in different eras of time.The most interesting thing is that the Bible consists of 66 books and it does not contradict each other,all the books contain one thought about God's kingdom or government.That is why it is called the Bible.Not one book in the world has such a history,it is the most ancient sacred book.2)The prophecies written in it in the past were fulfilled to the smallest detail, and also fulfilled the prophecy of our time also describes the prophecy of the future for a thousand years to come.The human mind is not capable of such a thing.To Pimer, the director of some institution, wants to write a letter, will he write it himself or ask the secretary?In the same way, God chose people to pass on His message to humanity.

  24. No, I don't believe it. A real god would not write (or dictate) such nonsense, making himself look like a complete idiot and villain. A divinely inspired book should be clear, clear, unambiguous, and consistent.

  25. Yes, I do. Because attentive! it is a careful study of these ancient ones! It is the study of ancient texts that reveals their relevance today. This shows how brilliant this literature is. Not every classic can boast such resistance to time.
    For example, fairy tales about the Greek “gods”, about Hercules, etc., having met with scientific discoveries, clearly revealed the fictional nature of their narrative. Arguments about the realism of Zeus the Thunderer today will be conducted only by a madman.
    And the controversy over the fictionalization of Biblical texts will not subside for a long time. And not because of the imagined stupidity of atheists, Jews, Muslims and Christians who believe in them, but because these texts contain precious grains of truth that will always be relevant.
    If, for example, we mention the legend or epic of Gilgamesh, which they like to mention in order to “compete” with the texts of the Holy Scriptures, then we can draw attention to the fact that for some reason, in general, very few people really needed this epic, since they did not bother to save it for the next stings. In contrast to this fact, there is the fact not only of saving and preserving the texts of the Holy Scriptures, but also of the worldwide distribution of these texts.
    It is not reasonable to say that this means nothing. This once again shows that facts are stubborn things and there is no escaping them. The vast majority of people are looking for answers to their questions in these texts not just by chance. For some reason, they don't look in Gilgamesh, but in the Holy Scriptures they do.
    If someone else didn't understand these wise texts, didn't see the hidden treasures of the mind there, then I figured it out and saw it. And it is obvious to me that these Scriptures are a Message from God to all people. Anyone who responds and studies His Messages can be a friend, not even of the president, but of the King of the Universe Himself.

  26. No, I don't believe it. I don't see a single reason to distinguish the Bible from a number of other religious doctrines. I don't see a single reason to seriously comment on the word “divine”.

    I don't believe in many things, in Santa Claus, in Baba Yaga, in Sauron, in Harry Potter.

  27. I don't believe it, the answer is simple – people are always looking for a way to make their existence easier, to believe that after all they are waiting for a reward or punishment, they are trying to find a reason for life.

    No one wants to believe that diseases, wars, other problems in life are all created by us, only we are to blame. It is easier to believe that this is a test that you must pass and get a reward, become a hero. But there is no reward.

    No one wants to believe that we have no purpose ( a moot point, I agree, but now it seems so), it is easier to believe that we are sent to Earth for experience and wisdom.

    No one wants to believe that there will be nothing after death, that we will break up into many atoms and become part of the chemical and physical processes of the Universe ( this is just an assumption, I do not express my attitude to various theories of life after death), it is easier to believe that something higher is waiting for us.

    It's just that people at all times are tired of all the, excuse the expression, shit. Even today, there are people who live as poorly as they did in other centuries. We tend to imagine anything in order to find an excuse for everything that happens to us.

    And yes, it's easier to believe that one day some dude from heaven will reach out and thank you for everything he's experienced. But no one will ever lend a hand.

    You might think I'm an avid atheist, but I'm not. I don't blame people for their faith, everyone gets out of everything as best they can.

    P.S. I forgot to add that all this faith could also be a way of manipulation. However, I have already described the reasons. In my memory, the entire life of the church was the richest, until the revolution of 1917, when there were just real repressions against the church. The church has always had more land, and even people paid it to guarantee that they would go to heaven and get rid of all their sins. That is why I believe that everything was created by people, for the purpose of calming and manipulating.

  28. Of course not.
    And not even because the divine nature of the Bible is confirmed in the Bible and nowhere else, not because there are no miracles in the world, or any other evidence of the existence of God.
    The problem goes much deeper.
    Because in the Bible I see an author-a person who tries to put his human words into the divine mouth. But the divine words that are devoid of human qualities (such as anger, hatred, vindictiveness, etc., etc.) are not there.
    Where is the divine mercy? Where is even the goodness of God? At first glance, they are propagandized, but if you look closely, first of all, there is no mercy in the Bible, and secondly, it seems that the authors did not know at all what it is and what parable should be brought to illustrate the same mercy.
    The impression, of course, can not be sewn to the case, but the question was about my attitude and not about the true truth. And my impression forms my own attitude.

    Total: the Bible was written by people, very unkind people.
