I accept the challenge, but expect my opponent to give a more clear definition of what he means when he claims that the Bible was written by God.

DBD - who are you saying 'wrong' to?

Wrong, it was written by God's servants as they listened to what God wanted them to write.

The resolution needs to be clearer, IMO. It's my understanding that no one, not even abrahamists, claim that God actually wrote the Bible. They claim that God maybe inspired the Bible (Moses wrote the pentatauch, etc), but not that God physically penned it.

Could you clarify the resolution a little bit? All I get from this is that you're arguing that the bible was, literally, written by God (as understood through the framework of Christianity).
