Most of Christianity accepts that the Bible is 'inspired,' but they differ on what exactly 'inspired' means. I'm curious as to what the HG has to say on this subject, with this question in mind:

If the Bible writers were inspired and we accept the Bible as infallible or without error, what do we make of the fact that the Bible itself records disputes among the apostles that had to be settled by councils or meetings and discussion? Is the Bible inspired as a 'whole' or is each individual writer inspired by God individually?

Use whichever version you think is inspired and answer as it relates to that version; or if you think none are, say so and leave the rest to those who do. Phone Post

 Inspiration really isn't the point.  The key is to become a skilled player of The Bible Game (TM).   No matter what claim you make, you must cite a verse from the Bible to go along with it.  So long as one verse appears to support your position you win at The Bible Game (TM).  If you see someone make a claim and not quote scripture, no matter how deep or erudite it may be, it is important to point out that they are not successfully playing The Bible Game (TM) and must, therefore, hate the scriptures and have no respect for God's Holy Word (TM).  

Allow me to demonstrate:

The Bible Game (TM) veteran:  "Christians should never drink alcohol ever."   - 

 Proof text:  "Wine is a mocker."  --  Prov. 20:1

The Bible Game (TM) loser:  "Christians may drink wine in moderation."

Proof text:  None


Results:  The Bible Game (TM) veteran wins!
