More to follow in hoping to help people to break free from popular institutionalized religious system indoctrination into false teachings pertaining to the bible. Part of what this system has done is to train its followers to look upon the bible as being "the word of God", "the word of the Lord", "the word of YHWH", "God's word" etc, when even the bible itself is not referring to itself when it uses these expressions... and rather it was always referring to God's living voice and/or the Holy Spirit of the Living God. Please note that the quoted segments to follow have been derived from the article linked at the end of the post.
""Jesus (Yehoshua) taught us to lean on the Spirit for all truth (John 16:13), and never taught us to follow a book or scriptures to all truth [nor a religous system, religious dogma, etc]. In fact he warned us against the scribes (“beware the scribes” Mark 12:38-40) and the leaven of the pharisees (Matthew 16:6). The priests (and who we would consider pastors today) were taking the scriptures and adding to it.""
""Our translators have done the same thing to the bible (adding in verses and words that don’t exist).""
""Jeremiah 8:8 How can you say, ‘We are wise, and the law (word/doctrine) of the LORD (YHWH) is with us?’ when actually the lying pen of the scribes has twisted it by writing lies?
""Jeremiah is telling them that the scriptures (Tanakh/OT) they have were not the actual “Word of God” that they thought it was. [As confirmation of what Jeremiah said] Jesus (Yehoshua) came and told us to beware the scribes. ""
""The “Word of God” (the one that’s infallible) that the bible talks about is heard through the Spirit. ... I suggest the Holy Spirit (the living God who lives inside of us) teaches us through the Spirit what He wants us to know. It’s how we hear “the Word of God.”""
""Can YHWH Preserve the “Word of God”?
When I made my video about the bible refuting the idea that it is the “Word of God” people tried to say that I didn’t believe God could keep His word from errors. As I stated above, the actual “Word of God” that we hear through the Spirit can and is kept 100% clean, infallible and away from all errors.""
"YHWH is all-knowing and all-loving and would never let us be without His Word (teachings/wisdom). He is all-knowing and warned us through the prophets over and over to test all things and make sure it lines up with Him and His ways, and that includes testing the bible or supposedly prophetic writings"
"Whenever anyone suggests the scriptures may have errors this is a common objection to say that we somehow think YHWH is not powerful enough to keep His scriptures from being changed. In this video from David H’Notsari he mentions [among other truths] that you could [test out this theory as to whether God allows the scriptures to be changed] just take [taking] whiteout to a bible verse and see[ing] if the whiteout magically disappears the next day."
"It’s quite obvious YHWH allows people to change the scriptures around. Why would He do that? The main reason is that He already gave us His Word, inside of us, in the Spirit and we don’t need scriptures to be saved."
"The fulfillment of the law is found in agape love, because if we love God and our enemies we won’t break the laws (torah). We never had any need to be taught with scriptures, we’re taught of God through the Spirit."
"Plenty of the followers of Jesus (Yehoshua) were unable to read or write, and even Abraham was born into a pagan family and found YHWH, converted, without ever reading a [bible]. He just learned the truth through the Spirit."
"Scriptures are not the infallible “Word of God” however they have many words (or teachings) from God in them. But that doesn’t make them infallible as a whole. The only 100% infallible “Word of God” is the Spirit of the Living God who lives inside of you."
"The Actual “Word of God” is Infallible with No Errors
Premise 1: God is infallible, with absolutely no errors, no sin, & no spot"
Premise 2: The “Word of God” is God (John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.)
Conclusion: The “Word of God” is infallible, with absolutely no errors, no sin, & no spot.
[Conclusion 2: The word of God is God, but the bible is not God]
[Conclusion 3: The word of God as mentioned in the bible is not the bible].
Premise 1: God is eternal, cannot die, cannot be destroyed
Premise 2: The “Word of God” is God (John 1:1).
Conclusion: The “Word of God” is eternal, cannot die or be destroyed.
Premise 1: God changes not
Premise 2: The “Word of God” is God
Conclusion: The “Word of God” changes not.
Premise 1: The “Word of God” changes not.
Premise 2: The bible has gone through many changes.
For example, the early versions of the bible had Jesus’s name being IESUS. His name was originally Yehoshua. There were originally more books than we have in our bible.
Conclusion: The bible cannot be the “Word of God”
No matter if these changes are small or huge, the fact remains that the bible has gone through changes. Our Father has not changed, and thus the “Word of God” has not changed, and so the bible cannot be the infallible “Word of God”.

] If every book the bible mentions is 100% trustworthy and 100% God breathed, then why are these books not in the bible? ]
Premise 1: The bible has errors
Every bible version disagrees with other bible versions or they couldn’t be called versions. So every different translation will have errors. If you want to argue that the bible doesn’t have any errors, then you would need to let us know the which one bible is the perfect bible because there are a lot of bibles that have errors compared to your perfect bible.
King James Version Bible (KJV) has YHWH lying about His name in Isaiah 42:8. It says “I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.”
The KJV labeled Jesus (Yehoshua’s) brother James as “James” when his Hebrew name is Yacov (Jacob).
We know that the KJV replaced the Tetragrammaton with “the LORD” and so it has YHWH saying His name is “The LORD” which He did not say because originally it was the Tetragrammaton, “YHWH”.
The KJV English translation also added words to the original Greek such as adding the word “God” to 1 Timothy 3:16. The word Theos, the Greek word for “God,” is not there in the Greek. So obviously even the KJV has errors and additions which leads to the next premise.
Premise 2: The bible can be destroyed, have words and whole books taken away & added to, different translations
As stated, the KJV added words, and also the verse 1 John 5:7 and others. Some bibles have the book of Enoch, some don’t.
If you want to believe in a perfect bible, then feel free to comment with which one has nothing added or changed from the original, because all translations do.
Premise 3: The “Word of God” changes not
Premise 4: The “Word of God” is infallible, no errors, no sin, no spot
Premise 5: the “Word of God” is eternal, cannot die or be destroyed
Conclusion: the bible cannot be the infallible “Word of God”
Premise 1: Prophets of the OT heard the “Word of God”
Ezekiel 1:3 The word of YHWH came expressly unto Ezekiel the priest, the son of Buzi, in the land of the Chaldeans by the river Chebar; and the hand of YHWH was there upon him.
Premise 2: Prophets of the OT never heard the bible [but rather they heard God's living voice]
The scroll of Ezekiel could not have been read/heard before Ezekiel heard the “Word of YHWH.” Ezekiel was not given a bible. He spoke what He heard the “Word of God” say, and it was [not] written down [until] after he heard it.
Conclusion: The “Word of God” that the prophets heard was not the bible.
Prophets and others hearing the “Word of God” preceeded the Tanakh/OT (and bible) being written.
The “Word of God” existed before the bible.
