Fundamentalist Christians make a lot out of saying that the Bible is the true Word of God. They use this belief as justification for taking the Bible literally, or at least as literally as they feel like (I don’t think any of them keep kosher).
But is this belief, itself, Biblical? I remember many times when the Old Testament refers to a particular passage as the words of God. I don’t remember a broad claim that every book in the entire collection is literally God jotting down his thoughts via holy Morse Code. Admittedly, a claim within a book that it was true because it’s the Word of God would be wonderfully self-referential, but it would at least support the fundie’s loopy logic.
Do any of you know of such a claim? A Biblical verse that claims the whole shebang is God talking through a human mouthpiece?
