today except as classic literature. The Bible is a valuable book because it was written by wise and good people. I do not believe it is really God's word but it can teach us many moral precepts. The Bible is the record of many different people's response to God and because of this, people and churches today must interpret the Bible's basic moral and religious teachings for themselves. The Bible is the inspired Word of God and its basic moral and religious teachings are clear and true, even if it reflects some human error. The Bible is the Word of God, the first and final authority for faith and life. The Bible is the actual Word of God and is to be taken literally.
