“All Scripture is breathed-out, or divinely inspired by, God/Jesus*….”

So unfortunately the bad things in the
Bible might be attributed to God/Jesus.

The New Testament of the Bible claims that “all Scripture is breathed-out by god”, or that “All Scripture is inspired by God” (depending on the translation of 2 Timothy 3:16-17.) It also claims that God/Jesus is all-knowing, and all-powerful. So because many many mistakes exist in the Bible we unfortunately can’t bring forward claims of God/Jesus’* divinity from the Bible.

English Standard Version:
“All Scripture is breathed out by God
, and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness,”
GOD'S WORD® Translation
“Every Scripture passage is inspired by God….
Darby Bible Translation
“Every scripture [is] divinely inspired…..”
New Living Translation
“All Scripture is inspired by God…..”

It also says that god is responsible for the content of the scripture:
Contemporary English Version
“The prophets did not think these things up on their own, but they were guided by the Spirit of God.” – 2 Peter 1:21

Add that to the 17+ verses in the New Testament that say that Jesus IS GOD, and the Bible is saying that all passages in the Bible are breathed-out, or divinely inspired by, the all-knowing and all-powerful God/Jesus.

The New Testament also says that Jesus arguably strongly approves of the old law and the prophets. We’ve risen to a higher level of morality and compassion than the old law and the prophets - and if you have as well, then you've moved to a higher level than the New Testament, arguably.

Because of all this, we feel it’s risky to believe in God/Jesus because of the often unethical nature of his (allegedly inspired) words in the Bible – so we’ve created our own, more ethical, teachings. Do you have the courage to do that?

As you become more and more ethical, would not your chances of getting into "heaven", and avoiding "hell" (if they exist), increase? So would Scientific Humanism be your best shot at a favorable afterlife (if it exists)?

 "At The Center For Scientific Humanism, we have faith - faith in you!"
- The Book of Scientific Humanism

Are we wrong? Tell us what you think.

Peace and love.
