All the questions...and confusion...and "well, I think"...and you're taking it too far...and God wants us to be happy...and grace means I don't have to respond in any way at all to God's love except to just say yes...and yada, mumbo-jumbo, blah, blah, blah...
It just all comes down to faith.
Faith that the Word of God is absolute and that Every. Single. Word. was breathed out of the mouth of God. (2 Timothy 3:16 - "All scripture is given by inspiration of God.") Inspiration comes from the Greek word "theopneustos" meaning "to breathe or blow." It implies sound--words--vocal intonation.
If Every. Single. Word. in the Bible was breathed by the God of the universe, then I don't have much room to quibble, do I?
The final question--the bottom line--comes down to this: Do you really believe that every single word in the Bible was breathed by God?
