Anyone with reasoning skills knows this was written by man and inspired by man.

i want to believe in god, but going to church makes me not believe in god
i truly think that the bible was written by man for the purpose of controlling the masses and calming down sin and wrongdoing so that the kings could hold on to their riches and the slaves would keep slaving believeing falsly that a better life awaited them after this one was over
the only way the kings could keep the peasants and slaves working for them with little reward was to create a book that told them this was the way you had to live so that you could have eternal happiness
when i go to church, the way they believe just turns me off
the focus on drug users getting reformed is just too much, i mean god is not going to help addicts, they have a genetic drive to be so
think about it, the slave owners gave the slaves cocaine back in the day to get more production out of them. these slave owners went to church too
these slaves genetically passed on the urge to use drugs to their offspring
the same with pain pills, these people now have these urges from when their anscesters drank moonshine to ease their pain and suffering from years of poverty
now they have a genetic craving for drugs and alcohol and while it is sad, no one or force has the ability to stop it
god may exist but does not interact with people
the bible is a good law book, but it is not followed or enforced, so therefore, it is useless
creationism or evolution

The creation–evolution controversy (also termed the creation vs. evolution debate or the origins debate) is a recurring cultural, political, and theological dispute about the origins of the Earth, humanity, life, and the universe.[1]
This debate is most prevalent in the United States, but to a lesser extent is also present in Europe and elsewhere,[2] and often portrayed as part of a culture war.[3] Creationists dispute the evidence of common descent of humans and other animals as demonstrated in modern palaeontology, and those who defend the conclusions of modern evolutionary biology, geology, cosmology, and other related fields. They argue for the Abrahamic religions accounts of creation, attempting to frame it as reputable science ("creation science"). While the controversy has a long history,[4] today it is mainly over what constitutes good science education,[5][6] with the politics of creationism primarily focusing on the teaching of creation and evolution in public education.[7][8][9][10][11] The debate also focuses on issues such as the definition of science (and of what constitutes scientific research and evidence), science education, free speech, separation of Church and State, and theology.
Evolution is an undisputed fact within the scientific community and in academia, where the level of support for evolution is essentially universal.[12][13][14][15][16] [17] The support for Abrahamic accounts or other creationist alternatives is very low among scientists, and virtually nonexistent among scientists in the relevant fields.[18] However, a 2012 Gallup survey reports, "Forty-six percent of Americans believe in the creationist view that God created humans in their present form at one time within the last 10,000 years. The prevalence of this creationist view of the origin of humans is essentially unchanged from 30 years ago, when Gallup first asked the question. About a third of Americans believe that humans evolved, but with God's guidance; 15% say humans evolved, but that God had no part in the process."

Why would a loving God , give us a free will then sentance us to death for accepting it? It makes no sense. It says He is merciful and loves us all. But if we don't do what we are told we will burn in fire forever. That is the most heartless thing I have ever heard. It says we must be baptized , so if not and someone lives a good life helping others and being kind to their neighbor and helping those in need they deserve to burn in hell??? Funny thing it says we are sheep and He is the Shepard and the only place sheep end up are to the slaughter house with no clue of their fate. I am not an atheist but I am not a sheep either.

Many ministers use portions of the Bible, which are generally misrepresented, to keep their "subjects" under control.
There are still those of us who believe the Bible, and some of us no longer drag our knuckles :)

I believe there are better theories than strict evolution or strict creationism.

No, I'm not qualified to make that judgement.
What I'm saying is, although a person may be forgiven, they may not act as such.
There are many who are living their life helping others. There are also many non believers who do the same things. Good people are just that, regardless of belief status.

Answer: Here are some evidences that the Bible is inspired (God-breathed) by God, as declared in 2 Timothy 3:16.

1) Fulfilled prophecy. God spoke to men telling them of things He would bring about in the future. Some of them have already occurred. Others have not. For example, there were more than 300 prophecies concerning Jesus Christ's first coming 2,000 years ago. There is no doubt that these are prophecies from God because of manuscripts and scrolls dated before the birth of Christ. These were not written after the fact. They were written beforehand. Scientific dating proves this.

2) The unity of Scripture. The Bible was written by approximately 40 human authors over a period of approximately 1,600 years. These men were quite diverse. Moses, a political leader; Joshua, a military leader; David, a shepherd; Solomon, a king; Amos, a herdsman and fruit picker; Daniel, a prime minister; Matthew, a tax collector; Luke, a medical doctor; Paul, a rabbi; and Peter, a fisherman; among others. The Bible was also written under a variety of circumstances. It was written on 3 different continents, Europe, Asia, and Africa. Yet, the great themes of Scripture are maintained in all the writings. The Bible does not contradict itself. There is no way, apart from God the Holy Spirit supervising the writing of the Bible, that this could have been accomplished.

I don't know anyone who wouldn't baptize a woman now.

Now I appeal to you, brothers and sisters, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you should be in agreement and that there should be no divisions among you, but that you should be united in the same mind and the same purpose. For it has been reported to me by Chloe’s people that there are quarrels among you, my brothers and sisters. What I mean is that each of you says,‘I belong to Paul’, or ‘I belong to Apollos’, or ‘I belong to Cephas’, or ‘I belong to Christ.’

Has Christ been divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Or were you baptized in the name of Paul? I thank God that I baptized none of you except Crispus and Gaius, so that no one can say that you were baptized in my name.(I did baptize also the household of Stephanas; beyond that, I do not know whether I baptized anyone else.) For Christ did not send me to baptize but to proclaim the gospel, and not with eloquent wisdom, so that the cross of Christ might not be emptied of its power.

Paul did not baptize very many people. He said he was called to preach the gospel not called to baptize.He believed in being baptized but he did not feel like he was called to baptize anyone. That might be why he did not baptize any women.
