I don't think it was a mistake.. just a lie to force others to conform
It would only be a mistake if it weren't true.
Their mistake is not worshiping Great Dozer the Magnificent. He will plow them under. He will bury them. Only Dozer the Magnificent can bring salvation and pave all roads before them.
I personally believe that it's not very respectful towards God to believe that the bible is literally His word. That would be like saying that God can't do math, or remember things clearly....for starters...
And what day to worship him
CHRISTIANS MISTAKEN !?
You mixed a bunch of theories into one. None of them however is demonstrated by evidence, rather contested by scholars.
All your points were proposed by scholars.
You suddenly switch points completely. First you say that the Bible is a conglomeration of sorts, and then suddenly you switch over to hypocrisy. I don't even see how a hypocritical follower demonstrates the weakness of the text of which he fails.
Looks more like you went one direction, realized it wasn't going to work, and changed direction.
History is actually based on a scientific process. It's reasonable and sound, a good path to truth. We find manuscripts and we criticize them in all sorts of reasonable and legitimate ways. For example. older manuscripts get more weight than younger ones. You do know that the New Testament enjoys many more manuscripts than any other ancient work?
This was determined scientifically through a process called Textual Criticism.
Science is by nature unbiased.
Textual Criticism is a scientific process, and it wasn't Christians that did it. It was historians.
I don't think the evidence would lend itself to your claim of the Bible. Textual Criticism just determines what the original letters were. You confusing this with canonization.
I think you haven't a clue what you're talking about.
Maybe you haven't been around apologists.
Have you ever examined the evidence of which the exhibit?
