It depends how you read it. If you're reading it thru a 21st century lense then you got problems.<quoted text>
What exactly would it matter if the scripture I use, the Bible, doesn't carry credibility with you?
I'm sticking with the Church that established the books as Holy Scripture. Face it, you have no way of knowing those books in your Bible are valid. They do not come with the title "word of God".
Paul didn't start out his letter to Timothy "hello, this letter I'm writing is the word of God"
An Earthly authority determined that letter to be canonical and included it in the New Testament Books. This didn't happen until the 4 and 5th century.
