The argument that Jesus is the word of God not the Bible is true in this sense. The Bible cannot be the word unless Jesus is. In the Bible we find Jesus as we would in a letter he personally wrote. In other words the Bible only means anything because Jesus expresses himself in it by inspiring it.  So it is because Jesus is the word that the Bible is.

A distortion of this argument is rife. Liars argue that Jesus is the word not the Bible in an attempt to find an excuse for ignoring something the Bible says.

In Matthew 15:6 Jesus rules out using religion as an excuse for making anything written in the word void. He says void or of no effect. He is not talking about contradicting it but only about ignoring it. He warns it is the commandment of God and must be obeyed.

The Gospel of John says Jesus is the word of God in flesh. In John 10:35 Jesus says the word of God is the scripture. So both are the message from God. The Bible is the word of Jesus so there is no disconnect between Jesus being the word and it being the word. And Jesus says the scripture cannot be broken or wrong.

The argument that God alone is the one who makes mistakes so there must be mistakes in the Bible is bizarre.  Surely God can produce an infallible Bible!  The Bible surely might be infallible simply because God is.  All arguments that Jesus or God alone is unerring and not a book ultimately presume that God despite being infallible cannot give unerring information.  It is nothing more than a liberalist lie.  It is an excuse for saying man knows better than any Bible. But even if the Bible errs it does not follow that any Church or preacher is smarter or more correct than it.  Prideful arrogance is not an attractive trait and liberals are full of it.

What if God himself tells you, “What I am saying now is a lie?”  Well if God is truth this is a lie. And if it is a lie it is true. If God cannot say it then is God almighty?  If Jesus is God the same problem arises.  God or not, what if he said, "What I am telling you now about God is a lie?"  The notion that God is so truthful that there is no doubt at all, that he cannot potentially lie, is incoherent.  The liar's paradox definitely shows this.  It shows a way in which the truth itself can be used to fool or set people up for being misled.  If Jesus said, "I am the truth", he needed to go to philosophy school.

It is doubtful that the God of philosophy that Christians merged with the Bible to make their deity theory look smarter is really licit. The Bible says nothing about God being this spirit that has all power and which is like an undetectable and non-material power.  It calls God spirit yes but spirit in the Bible means breath so God could be some kind of material entity.  The philosophers inspired the Church doctrine that all things need a maker but God does not for he is too simple yet mysterious.  But this is a trick.  It may be harder to make something that simple or close to it than it could be to make a grain of sand.  Sometimes the convoluted thing is the easiest.  There are too many lies in religion to trust it if it tells you its Messiah is the truth.

A philosopher wrote, "‘Truth’ is a quality not of things in the world but of our statements about the world. In other words, the truth is not ‘out there’, but is integral to our utterances. Objects in the world simply are or are not. What we say about them, however, is either true or false. How do we know if a statement is true? Much philosophical ink has been spilled on this. Statements that do not make any logical sense have little chance of being true."

In other words things exist or they do not but that does not mean that the way we talk about them makes them true or false.  They are true or false and we have to get the words to convey that accurately.  There is a problem though when a statement about x is identified as the truth about x.  You can be about the statement about x not x.  You see religious people who care about their religious doctrines rather than what the doctrines are supposed to be about.  We must ask if the likes of Jesus were encouraging that.  The answer is yes and that is shown by the outrageous hypocrisy of Christianity.
