They are not Gods and certainly not perfect. They are simply passing on their own opinions and traditions. They do not agree with each other, contain errors, contradictions and even fabrications. They are 'living documents' of the evolution and change of Judea-Christian beliefs over several centuries.
As such, they are historically valuable like Mein Kampf, The Communist Manifesto and The Declaration of Independence. "The Perfect Word of God" they are not.
