The Bible is Inspired — John Valters Paintner

November 17, 2019

Thank you for this wonderful reflection and insight, John ❤️

“To claim that the Bible is inspired by God is not to claim that it was dictated by God to humans who simply wrote down what they were told. To claim the Bible is inspired by God is to claim that humans were inspired, compelled, by their interactions with the divine presence or experience to write down their stories.”
