Whatever he wants.(shrug)

For example, if it happened to be the passage about Balam's talking donkey it means there was a sneaky ventriloquist which no-one knew about which followed him every step of the way. That way the Bible is never wrong.

Unless we do finally find evidence of talking donkeys at a later date, then the Bible was still right in the first place.

Isn't it the WTBTS contention that Francis the talking mule was the daughter of Balam's donkey and Mr. Ed? Well, there ya go then. A data-full assertion.

I asked you to explain. You stated there was no need.
The need is defined by the asking. Choosing not to do so likely indicates it is unexplainable (i.e., nonsense).

so then accordingly, the unexplainable falls under the category of "God works in mysterious ways" (i.e., nonsense).

The start of an analysis doesn't solve anything. Conducting and concluding the analysis does. Your side has proven to be much more into assertion than analysis.

It means that all of the Bible is Inspired by God (original language literally "God breathed"), therefore, having God's backing.

Was this quote from the Bible written before or after the Bible was assembled with the specific books we now use?

You have previously dismissed the stance of "the bible is true because the bible says it is true." Apparently, there was a time when you realized it was an absurdity which would not bear the weight of your abysmally sorry dataless assertion that "the bible is a demonstrated reliable source," yet now you fully embrace it. Play the hand you've been dealt, and "pray for the best," eh?. "Lord knows" you've got nothing else.

Who knows? Like half of the other books in the NT, 2 Timothy was supposedly written by Paul - the guy who stroked out or was hit by lightening on the Damascus road and never even met Jesus (since he was already dead)- though Paul AKA Saul said he did, and that's proof enough for KAB...

Oh, KAB, you have done it again. How can your supporters continue to worship the Watchtower of you can't even get basic things right.

It means all scripture (the old testament) is supposedly (according to one N.T. author) God breathed. But reference to that passage in the Bible to support the Bible is circular.

BTW KAB, I just learned that a very high percentage of JWs were abused as children and I was wondering if you fit that mold as well.

It is is not even clear who wrote that passage. It is in 2 Timothy which was attributed to Paul but has long been known to be a pseudonymous work of unknown authorship and authority.

It may have been written by a follower of Paul and passed off as Paul's after the later's death. But that is not known for certain.
