    And more just like thsi liberal should be run out of our seminaries across the nation. They should find no place to teach their subversive theology.

    Wasn't Jesus 100% human and 100% Divine? If I'm not mistaken, wasn't it humans that put pen to paper?

    2 Peter 1:19-21
    19 We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts: 20 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. 21 For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.




    2 Tim 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

    I ask again, is Jesus 100% human and 100% Divine?

    I'd never claimed it was human will that penned the Bible, but it was Human's participating with the Holy Spirit.

    So you could say, that just as Jesus' humanity submitted to His Divinity, those human writers of Scripture submitted to the Holy Spirits will, in a mystery unknown to us.

    What this means to me is that man helped God write the bible, parts were men's idea to add,
    making this verse not true.

    This subject was brought up in the General Forum a short while back.

    The professor has a web site (found within the link) that explains his views.
