Who Inspired the Authors of the Bible?


By Dr. Norlain Dindang Mababaya

Have you read the
Bible with an open mind? Have you not discovered that not a single
verse in it clearly points to God as its author? Does it explicitly
say that God inspired all of its various authors?

If you are among
those who believe in the Bible as "God's Book" or that
He inspires its different authors, this article is for you. Through
this you will discover the truth that God is not the author of the
Bible. One thing you should bear in mind: nowhere in the Bible does
it say that it is holy nor does it name itself as one.


If God did inspire
the different authors of the Bible, why does it contain verses that
belittle Him? Why does it recognise Satan as "the ruler"
and even "god of this world"? If the Bible confuses you,
if you do not know who is behind it; then read this paper very carefully.
Analyse the following examples of the Biblical verses that belittle
God and glorify satan. See if you can refute them. If you remain
confused, be rational to accept the truth. Let not your emotions
and pride overrule you. Accept that God is not the author of the
Bible. The book itself says that God is not the author of confusion
but of peace (1 Corinthians 14:33).

Examples of the
Biblical Verses that Belittle God

  1. Would you agree with the Bible when it says. "The
    Lord is man of war; the Lord is His name" (Exodus 15:3)?
    Is it not a blasphemy to say that God is a man, even a man of
  2. Is there man a superior than God? Why does the
    Bible describe God to be merely prince of peace (Isaiah 9:6);
    whereas, Melchizedek as the King of Peace (Hebrew 7:2)?
    Does not God deserve the grand title, the King of Peace?
  3. God is not omniscient. How come the Bible portrays
    God's limited knowledge of His creatures? (Genesis 3:8-13;
    Job 1:7)
    Would you believe that God did not even know Satan,
    of where he came from? (Job 1:7).
  4. God does not know what is right (Job 42:7-8).
    So, He needs to be told what is right as narrated in the Book
    of Job.
  5. Are the verses that portray God created lies (e.g.
    1 Kings 22:22-23; Judges 9:23)
    divinely inspired?
  6. Does not the Bible belittle God when it says that
    He is the husband of a barren woman? To quote: "For your
    Maker is your Husband, the LORD of hosts is His name." (Isaiah
    Is God a man that the Bible associates a partner to
    Him? Is he not Almighty and Self-Sufficient or the only One free
    of needs?
  7. The Bible narrates instances that depict God was
    not omnipresent at all times (Genesis 3:8; Genesis 11:5).
  8. God can be tempted as shown in the following verses:
    "Why do you tempt the Lord?" (Exodus 17:2) "You
    shall not tempt the Lord your God as you tempted Him in Massah."
    (Deuteronomy 6:16).
  9. God is not omnipotent. He is powerless to help
    His creatures (Judges 1:19). Would you believe that a man
    had robbed God (Malachi 3:8-9)? He is also weak. He "Wearied"
    (Isaih 43:24) and "rested" (Genesis 2:2; Exodus
  10. God is not the only saviour. Did not God say, "Besides
    me there is no saviour" (Isaiah 43:10-12)? How come
    the Bible mentions of "saviours" who were to judge....
    (Obadiah 1:21).
  11. God made foolishness. Paul said that God made foolish
    the wisdom of this world and that God is pleased with the foolishness
    of the message preached to save those who believe (1 Corinthians
  12. The Law of the Lord made nothing perfect: Would
    you believe Paul when he said that the law made nothing perfect
    (Hebrews 7:18-19).
  13. God's commandments are not pure. How true that
    God said (or "inspired") Hosea to take a wife of harlotry
    and children of harlotry (Hosea 1:2)? Did he really say
    to Hosea to go again, love a woman who is loved by a lover and
    is committing adultery (Hosea 3:1).
  14. God repents. He was "sorry that He had made
    man on the Earth" (Genesis 6:6-7).
  15. Holiness does not pertain to God alone: The Bible
    mentions of: holy people (Isaiah 63:18), a holy nation
    (Exodus 19:6), the holy seed (Psalm 86:2). holy
    prophets (Luke 1:70) and some servants of God as holy (Leviticus
    11:44; Psalm)
  16. God is angry forever. Bible asks: "How long
    Lord will you be angry forever? Will your jealousy burn like fire"
    (Psalm 79:5).
  17. God is not only jealous but his name is Jealous.
    Did God really say that He was jealous God (Exodus 20:5)?
    Does not the Bible belittle God when it says that God's name is
    Jealous (Exodus 34:14). Is He not worthy of all praise?
  18. God is not a rock. The Bible says, "who is
    a rock, except our God?" (2 Samuel 22:32) it contradicts
    the statement: "To whom then will you like God? Or what likeness
    will you compare Him?" (Isaiah 40:18).
  19. Man blesses God (Psalm 34:1;103:1). David
    said, "I will bless the Lord at all times." (Psalm
    Does this mean that God is dependent on man?
  20. God is visible. There were men who had seen God
    (Genesis 26:2; 32:30; 35:9, Exodus 24:9-10; 33:11; Numbers
    12:6-8; Job 42:5; Amos 9:1)
  21. God is changeable. The Bible narrates verses that
    show His changeable actions (Exodus 33:1,3, 14,17; Samuel 2:30-31;
    Jonah 3:10)
  22. God's work is far from perfect. It questions man's
    purity, being God's creation (Job 15:14-26).
  23. God is not oft-forgiving. He does not forgive sins
    of those whose hands are full of blood no matter how many prayers
    they make (Isaiah 1:15). What if their prayers are sincere,
    showing their true repentance? Would not God forgive them? If
    the sinners will believe in this verse, do you think they will
    receive admonition? Or you will expect them, being of little faith,
    instead to become atheists?
  24. God is not the only judge of all mankind. The Bible
    says, "For the father judges no one, but has committed all
    judgement to the Son" (John 5:22). Even Paul claimed
    that he judged (1 Corinthians 5:1-3; 1 Corinthians 5:12).
    He also said: "We shall judge angels. How much more on things
    that pertain to this life?" (1 Corinthians 6:2-3).
  25. How come the Bible talks of "the fear of the
    LORD" (Psalm 19:9; 111:10; Isaiah 63:17), "the
    foolishness and "weakness of God" (1 Corinthians
    Is He not the Almighty?
  26. God was a tribal King. He was the King of Israel
    (Isaiah 44:6; Micah 5:2).
  27. If God were the King of Israel (Isaiah 44:6;
    Micah 5:2)
    , then Satan must be superior to God. The Bible
    perceives Satan as the ruler of this world (John 14:30; 16:11).
  28. The Bible associates partner to God. It says that
    Jesus is equal with God" (Philippians 2:8). It confuses
    Christians to believe him as "the only begotten Son of God"
    (John 3:16,18) and "one" in essence and in nature
    with God (John 14:6-7). In short, Jesus was "God"
    (Romans 9:5). If Jesus were God, then God was not at all
    almighty, omnipotent and eternal. The Bible narrates that Jesus
    was sorrowful and deeply distressed. His soul was exceedingly
    sorrowful, even to death. So, he fell on his face, and prayed
    (Matthew 26:37-39; Mark 14:33-36). The high priest tore
    his clothes. They all condemned him to be worthy of death. Then
    some began to spit on him, and blindfolded him, they struck him
    on the face (Luke 22:63, 64). He groaned in the spirit
    and was troubled. Jesus wept (John 11:33,35). He suffered
    outside the gate (Hebrews 13:12). They crucified him (John
    until he yielded up his spirit (Matthew 27:50),
    breathed his last (Luke 23:46) and "died" (Romans
  29. If Jesus were "God", then God was a racial
    God. The Bible describes Jesus as the Lion of the tribe of Juda
    (Revelation 5:5). It means that he was a tribal Jew. He
    came for the Jews only (Matthew 15:24). And he practised
    racial discrimination. He commanded his disciples to go to the
    lost sheep of the house of Israel and told them not to go to the
    way of Gentiles and a city of the Samaritans (Matthew 10:5-6).
  30. If "God" were a racial God, the God of
    Israel (also see Jeremiah 7:3), then Satan has dominion
    over Him. Would you believe, "there is no God in the entire
    earth, except in Israel" (2 Kings 5:15)? How come
    the Bible says, "Satan is the god of this evil world"
    (2 Corinthians 4:4)?

Examples of the
Biblical Verses that Glorify Satan

  1. Satan is the prince of the world. The living New
    Testament says that Satan is the prince of this world who shall
    be cast out (John 12:31). The Amplified version even describes
    Satan as "the ruler (evil generous, prince) of this world"
    (John 12:31).
  2. Satan is the ruler of this world. He is the ruler
    of this world who is Judged. The King James says that the ruler
    of this world is coming (John 14:30). The Amplified version
    specifies that the prince (evil genius, ruler) of the world who
    is coming is Satan (John 14:30,31). The same version of
    the Bible stresses that Satan is the ruler of this world (John
    . He is the ruler of this world who is judged (John
    according to the other versions (i.e. King James, Living
    New Testaments, and the Revised Standard).
  3. Satan is the god of this evil world. The Living
    New Testament even recognizes that Satan is the god of this evil
    world (2 Corinthians 4:4). The King James states that the
    god of this age has blinded those who do not believe (4 Corinthians
  4. Satan is imbued with all power. The King James
    writes: "The coming of the lawless one is according to the
    working of Satan, with all power, signs and lying wonders"
    (2 Thessalonians 2:9).
  5. The devil had the power of death. All the popular
    versions of the Bible, (i.e. King James, Amplified, Living New
    Testament and the Revised Standard) agree that the devil had the
    power of death (Hebrews 2:14).
  6. The whole world is under the power of the evil
    one. The King James, Amplified and Revised Standard concur that
    the whole world is under the power of the evil one (1 John
    . The Living New Testament says that all the rest of
    the world around us is under Satan's power and control (1 John


    With all the descriptions
    given contrary to God's divine attributes would you then say
    that the Bible is God's Word? Would you agree with the Bible
    when it says that Satan is the ruler and god of this world?
    Would you believe that the whole world is under the power of
    the evil one, Satan? Is Satan imbued with power, including the
    power of death? How true is it that God is kind to the devil
    (Luke 6:35)? Does the evil one deserves God's kindness
    when he is in fact, rebellious to God? Would you not question
    God's justice to punish the wicked, if God were kind to the
    devil? Does it not imply that people have to also show kindness
    to the evil one instead of fighting or resisting him? If all
    people will adhere to this verse, do you think there will be
    peace and order in the world ? Is it not that the evil does
    not only deceive mankind but also creates mischiefs to humanity?

    Who is behind the Biblical verses that belittle
    God and glorify Satan on the other hand? Will you attribute
    them to God? To attribute them to God is a sheer blasphemy.
    The Qur'an, the Book of God in Truth (32:3), is free
    of discrepancy (4:82). It contains nothing but the truth
    and the best explanation thereof (25:33). It serves as
    a Light to Guide humanity to the straight Way (42:52).
    Its Author, Allah (the Arabic word for God), has allowed therein
    no crookedness (18:1).


The Qur'an is the
divine Revelation from Allah (Qur'an, 56:80). It is the only
Book that is pure and Holy (Qur'an, 80:14). Allah, the Author
Himself, says that it is the most honourable Book, which none shall
touch but those who are clean (Qur'an, 56:77-79). It is the
Only Book that is full of Holy Praises to Allah - Only One worthy
of all praise (Qur'an, 31:26). The most beautiful names belong
to Him. (Qur'an, 7:180). All the 114 chapters of the Qur'an
(except Surah Al-Tawbah, the 9th chapter) start with: "In the
name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful." This holy praises
to Allah occurs twice within the text of Surah Al-Naml (Qur'an,
, making a total of 114 occurrences. Upon reading the
Qur'an, you will discover that it contains full praises to Allah.
even the chapter Al-Tawbah, which does not carry the usual opening
praises contains glorification's to God in most of its verses. It
ends with the following glorious praises to Him: "There is
no god but he; on Him is my trust - He is Lord of Throne (of Glory)
Supreme!" (Qur'an, 9:129).

The Qur'an, being
the Book, enlightens you of the godly attributes of Allah. It overwhelms
you to know that Allah alone is the Lord of the Worlds (Qur'an,
- the present world and the world to come in the hereafter.
He is the One Free of all wants, Worthy of all praise (Qur'an,
. Allah is the Almighty - Exalted in Might (Qur'an,
, the Most High (Qur'an, 4:34), Exalted in Power,
the All-Knowing, All-Wise (Qur'an, 4:26). He is perfect in
Knowledge and Wisdom (Qur'an, 2:32; 15:25). Allah! There
is no god but He - the Living, Self-Subsisting, Eternal (Qur'an,
. HE is Full of loving-kindness (Qur'an, 85:14).
Allah is He, than Whom there is no other god - the Sovereign, the
Holy One, the Source of Peace (and Perfection), the Guardian of
Faith, the Preserver of safety, the Exalted in Might, the Irresistible,
the Supreme; Glory to Allah! (High is He) above the partners they
attribute to Him (Qur'an, 59:23). To Him belongs the dominion
of the heavens and the earth; and Allah has power over all things
(Qur'an, 3:189). He is Allah, the One and Only (Qur'an,
. They do blaspheme who say: Allah is one of the three
in a Trinity: for there is no God except One God (Qur'an, 5:73).
Allah is our Lord and the Lord of Jesus Christ the son of Mary (Qur'an,
, a servant of Allah to Israel (Qur'an, 43:59).

You have to believe
that the Qur'an comes from Allah alone. Allah stresses that it is
never brought down or inspired by Satan. No one could produce it,
nor falsehood could approach it. He said "No evil ones have
brought down this (Revelation): it would neither suit them nor would
they be able (produce it)." (Qur'an, 26:210) "No
falsehood can approach it from before or behind it. (Qur'an,
"Nor is it the word of an evil spirit accursed."
(Qur'an, 81:25).

Allah enjoins every
reader of the Qur'an to seek refuge from Him from the influence
of Satan before reading it. This further proves that Satan, the
Evil One, has no place in the Qur'an. Allah tells us: "When
thou does read the Qur'an, Seek Allah's protection from Satan, the
rejected one. No authority has he over those who believe and put
their trust in their Lord. His authority is only over those who
take him as their patron and who join partners with Allah."

Allah enlightens
us many times (e.g. 13:19; 20:2-4; 25:6; 26:192-195; 69:43-51)
to believe that the Qur'an comes from Him alone. He guides us to
seek His protection from Satan's influence (7:200). He makes
us refrain from evil thoughts (7:201) and deeds (24:21).
He makes it clear that Satan is our enemy. He says: "Verily
Satan is an enemy to you; So treat him as an enemy. He only invites
his adherent, that they may become companions of the Blazing Fire"

If you are for the
Truth, then you have to believe that Allah is the Only True God
and Lord of the Worlds. For your success, you have to read and follow
the Qur'an. It is His comprehensive divine guidance to all of us,
for us to attain felicity both in this world and in the Hereafter.
If you agree that every Word of God is pure and true, you must believe
that God is not the Author of the Bible. Never did He inspire the
authors of the book that belittles Him and glorifies Satan. Who
then inspired the authors of the Bible?
