I'm new here and thought I would open up a topic for discussion. My apologies if this has been discussed before; the last bible thread only seemed to touch on the issue.

I don't place any particular faith label on myself, although I consider myself a spiritual person. I was raised in a Christian church, later abandoning the organization altogether do to what I viewed as inconsistencies and hypocrisy.
One of the main issues that divided me as a youth and later led to me leaving the Christian church was the idea of the bible being the perfect and holy word of god.
I ask Christians how they can believe words that were written and compiled by man to be the word of God, but all I receive are circular answers that always include something vague about "faith" or "trusting in Jesus".
The Bible has essentially been edited for content, has it not? It has been translated every which way and some books have been left out merely because some MAN had the balls to say "THIS book is the word of god, but THIS book ISN'T."
I believe in Jah, Yahwey, Jehova, God, or whatever name you want to give for the force that created us, but isn't it a bit presumtious of us to say that words written by men were chanelled by God?
