@th190502 - Really? "Since the Bible is very clear" Which bible? Which copies upon copies? Which translation? Which countless updates? Which dead languages that have died of? The bible isn't "clear" about anything otherwise there would be only one book and only one translation for everybody to read and understand especially if it is "inspired by god".
Oh and btw, Which god? And why only one god? In which case is an unproven storybook character fabled fantasy undefined whatever supposed "god" OF PRINT ONLY from a BOOK, Namely your bible, That nobody in the entire existence of the human race has ever been able to prove even exists.
And it gets even worse as no idiot god if true and genuine in any possible way would never use text/ the written word, Namely your bible, Not for any reason, Not ever, As a form of communication, Advertisement, Correspondence, Which is the worst possible way to get its messages across from itself to man. There are at least 50 reasons for this. Hopefully, You can think of at least 3. If you can"t then you do not know your religion as well as you think. In fact, It"s not at all. To prove it, Think about ---anything---, Anything at all as far as what is the criteria that comes from a god and could NOT in any way possible have come from the mind of a human as far as a human is concerned in your bible? The fact is there's nothing godly about your bible that a man could not have come up with. In other words, It's a critical nature of falsifiability.
Wow. No prophecy from your bible has ever happened or ever come true. Nor will they ever. Why? There's no dates in your bible. Not one. See automatically why it's the critical nature of falsifiability? ANYBODY can make a prediction and make it come true if there's nothing specific about it, Especially if there's no dates. Hey "the sun will rise tomorrow". There. My prophecy is accurate. Now do you want accurate prophecies without dates that put the bible to shame? Y____? N____?

I disagree with this comment, Since the Bible is very clear that this book shouldn't be modified, It is a book inspired by God, It could not be better.
Apocalipsis 22: 18, 19
I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy in this book: If anyone adds to these things, God will bring on him the plagues that are written in this book. And if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God will take away his part of the book of life, And from him.

How would you know? Not very bright kid. You should have looked up the very definition of the word "bible" before you made your stimulus check bounce among your meat hook apparatus horsey decay dismount.
Bible: 1. The collection of sacred writings of the Christian religion, Comprising the Old and New Testaments.
2. Hebrew Bible.
3. Often bible. The sacred writings of any religion.
4. Bible, Any book, Reference work, Periodical, Etc. , Accepted as authoritative, Informative, Or reliable:
He regarded that particular bird book as the birdwatchers' bible.

Now where exactly are the words "god", "christ", Or "jesus", Anywhere within those definitions?
Say "duh" before you further embarrass yourself and your senile incompetent religion.

Nope - if you take Christ out of "the Bible" then the collection of books can no longer be called "the Bible". You would have another text like the Torah instead. If you take God out then you don't really have any text or religious scripture at all.

Getting rid of the Bible is not improving the Bible. That is like taking your bike to an engineer to get it fixed and them saying "yeah, I have improved your bike for you. I scrapped it. "
