The Bible wasn't written to trick anybody. It simply just recorded events as they happened. You guys (some Atheists) want to discredit the Bible because you think it was written by mere men. And they must have some hidden agenda to fool you into this religion to control you. So I guess you think 40 different writers over a 1500 year period of time conspired to achieve this great con. The problem is that your reading it wrong. Men may have actually wrote down what was happening but it was God who inspired their writings.
The Bibles theme From Genesis to Revelations has never changed. First we are to love and serve God and second since Genesis chap 3 God has been trying to reconcile a fallen, sinful, lost man back to Himself. That's it. Where's this giant conspiracy in that and what good has it done for Moses, King David, Isaiah, Jeremiah or the New Testament writers?
When you read the Bible read it as if it was really God trying to talk to you. Read it like it might just be the most important book ever. People say they can't hear God talking to them? I don't usually either, unless I'm reading or studying His word. Are His words important? Quick story from John chapter 6....
Jesus is laying down some hard sayings as He speaks in the Synagogue. And as a result of this many of His followers withdrew from Him. Then Jesus says to the "twelve" "Do you guys want to leave me too"? Listen carefully to my boy Peter's reply. "Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life."
