How can the Bible be infallible if it is written by fallible humans?
Here is an example of words found in perfect number sequence in the Hebrew Tora. "Yeshua Shai" (Jesus the Gift)
Every 12th Letter in Hebrew Tora spells "JESUS IS MY NAME" Starting with the first yod, counting every 22nd
letter spells– Yeshua shai, which means "Yeshua, the Gift." Yeshua means Jesus in Hebrew.
from: "His Name is Jesus" These are words found in number sequence in the Suffering Servant Passages in Isaiah written way before Jesus was born.

"NAZARENE" is also in the same chapter, along with seventy- four of the names, places, and events of the time period of Jesus of Nazareth! "Yeshua Is My Name"
While I believe the Bible authors were inspired, I find it hard to hold that God told them, word by word, what to say. If so, why are there errors of fact in the Bible? In Mark 2:26, Jesus tells a story of David "when Abiathar was High Priest," but 1 Sam 21:1-6 says the priest was Ahimelech, not Abiathar. This is not a mistake God would make, but it is a human mistake.
Again, if God told the writers each word to use, why is each author's style so distinctive? Why bother with human authors at all, if God is not going to use their gifts? I like the story the Rabbis tell about Moses, that God spoke only the first Aleph (a stop similar to "h", the sound we use before the vowel of, say, "eat"); all the rest was Moses' interpretation of that experience. Still, the authors were inspired by their experience of God and the need to write, to explain and understand that experience. Then the faithful adopted those texts that best told the story--and the result is the inspired word of God, but told through those human authors.
The books of the Bible were not written, in their human author's eyes, to be in the Bible. They were written to answer other needs, such as Paul's letters: to respond to the needs of his Churches when he could not come himself. The Church then recognized that these texts, out of the many hundreds available, best told what God was like, best pointed towards our experience of God, and so they gathered them. That formed the Bible.
The inspiration of the Holy Spirit, to take the experience of the faithful and produce a text that revealed God's presence--that's what makes the Bible infallible, in matters of faith and morals. We believe the Bible, because we trust in the guidance of the Holy Spirit in writing, forming and collecting it, and in keeping it for us throughout the ages.
i don't even know what infallible means! it mean beleiveable rite?
well yeah God was there allot of the time that people are writeing the Bible. The Bible is just more like a book of stories that people live by. and allot people don't believe the Bible word for word. They don't take the words literaly. For instance Jona and the Big Fish that ate him. It specifically said big fish in the bible, a wale was never mentioned, and we know that there is no huge fish that can eat a human being. I do believe plenty of the miracles that were performed though. It's more like a book of fable or stories that you should live by.
it wasn't written by humans as we often think about normal authors. The Holy Ghost gave each writer an insight to the truth and ergo the Bible was written.
It's not fallible even though it was written by fallible humans cuz God used them to write it or anither way is He 'put' it in them wat to write
Easy, God-inspired (He led them in what to write) - I'm sure you'd agree He has that capability....even if you don't, He Does.
i find the bible to be confusing true ity waz written by humans not by the being we call god so idk wat 2 say
It's not. All you have to do it read it to see that it's filled with mistakes.
I'd love it if you could show me a single mistake in the Bible..
They may have wrote it but god told them everyword to put in the bible
