A debate is raging as to whether the Bible is God's Word, or if the Bible merely contains the Word of God.

This page is more of a verification of what the Bible is rather than a proof, as it would constitute circular reasoning.

The Bible is God's Word

All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)[1]

Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish aught from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you. (Deuteronomy 4:2)

For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book : and if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book. (Revelation 22:18-19)


We cannot, of course, use these passages to show a non-Christian that the Bible is God's word, as this would constitute circular reasoning. Using the other pages in the Truth of Scripture heading would better accomplish that. The passages above are more of a verification than proof.
