Did God Write the Bible or Men?

During an ongoing discussion I am having with various muslims, one challenged me by stating...


@Karl Munford.
But u have no proof that Jesus isnt [is] the son of god because the bible wasn’t written by God.

To which I replied...


I believe you may have mis-phrased that but I know what you are saying. Still, just as Satan uses the institution of men to write the doctrines of devils, so too did God use holy men to write the scriptures...

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

...who are not driven by the spirit of antichrist as were those who penned the Quran to deny that Jesus is the Son of God [1 Jn 2:22], but rather by the Holy Ghost to acknowledge that He is...

2 Peter 1:21
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.

All Creation is God’s...

Psalm 24:1
The earth is the Lord’s, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.

But God has given the habitable part [dimension] of this earth to Mankind for a season, after which He will bring us all to account...

Psalm 115:16
The heaven, even the heavens, are the Lord’s:
but the earth hath he given to the children of men.

A higher dimension than ours, yet part of this creation is where Satan currently dwells...

Ephesians 2:2
wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:

And below us is both Hades, which holds until judgement all of those disembodied souls who chose to die in their sins having rejected God’s only provision for sin... the death and resurrection of His only begotten Son Jesus Christ...

Acts 2:27
because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell [Greek: Hades], neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.

As well as The Abyss where Antichrist reigns as King, although some believe he has already been released... [Rev 9:1-2]

Revelation 9:11
And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit [The Abyss], whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon. [The Destroyer]

All these are part of the creation of this earth, but the habitable part he has given to mortal man...

Proverbs 8:30-31
30 - then I was by him, as one brought up with him: and I was daily his delight, rejoicing always before him;
31 - rejoicing in the habitable part of his earth; and my delights were with the sons of men.

And having given us authority over this dominion...

Genesis 1:26
And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

...God does not micromanage every decision we make, but has set a day when He will reward everyone for what they did in the days of their flesh, some to everlasting life having been cleansed from their sins through faith in His Son’s work of redemption upon a Cross, first spoken of by The Law and the Prophets...

1 Peter 1:7-9
7 - that the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:
8 - whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory:
9 - receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls.

And some to everlasting damnation, who excusing their sins in the days of their life rejected God’s only provision for sin, Christ Jesus and Him crucified...

Acts 17:31
because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him [Jesus] from the dead.

Who after their coming death and detention in Hades, shall be raised for judgement...

Hebrews 9:27
And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:

...and this at the judgement of the damned, because they rejected God’s only provision for sin...

Revelation 20:11-15
11 - And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.
12 - And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
13 - And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.
14 - And death and hell [Greek: Hades] were cast into the lake of fire [Hell]. This is the second death.
15 - And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. [Hell]

What I am getting at is this, that God uses ‘the institution of men’ to move in our dominion, which is why God the Word became a Man [Jn 1:14] in the person of Jesus Christ and why the son of Satan shall appear in the person of Antichrist, that great world leader whom the world shall embrace because they refused the knowledge of the truth that they might be saved.

1 Timothy 2:5
For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, THE MAN Christ Jesus;

And how do we know which ideologies are antichrist?
Scripture tells us that they are antichrist ideologies inspired by Satan if they deny that Jesus is the Son of God.

1 John 2:22
Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.

And we can add to that, if they deny that God’s Son became flesh, to appear in the person of Jesus Christ.

1 John 4:3
and every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.

Islam fulfils both description mentioned here of an antichrist ideology, and its appearance on the world stage tells us that we are now living in the last days.

1 John 2:18
Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.
