Who Wrote the Bible?

The Holy Spirit is the Author of the Word of God. God used man as a vehicle to make His revelation known.

Men and brethren, this Scripture must needs have been fulfilled, which the Holy Ghost by the mouth of David spake before concerning Judas, which was guide to them that took Jesus.
Acts 1:16

And when they agreed not among themselves, they departed, after that Paul had spoken one word, Well spake the Holy Ghost by Isaiah the prophet unto our fathers,
Acts 28:25

Prophets, writers of scripture, such as David, Isaiah and others were prompted to speak by the Holy Ghost. The Holy Ghost is the source of infallible revelation. God's Word has not been devised by man's intellect.

There is always this argument that I hear frequently: 'Man messed up the Bible through all the translations. They added stuff to meet their own agendas.'

This argument does not stand. First, it implies that there once was something known as God's Word, which at one time, was perfect or, not 'messed up'. That point alone acknowledges that God is real, powerful, infallible and can indeed speak to man. And that truth, admitted by their own argument, leads us to this: God is powerful enough, then, to maintain the integrity of His Word to man, regardless of how many pens may have written it, or mouths may have spoken it. If we believe that God has something to say to us, then we believe that He is powerful enough to make sure we get the full message. He watches over His Word.

So shall My word be that goes forth out of My mouth: it shall not return to Me void [without producing any effect, useless], but it shall accomplish that which I please and purpose, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.
Isaiah 55:11 AMP

Then said the Lord to me, You have seen well, for I am alert and active, watching over My word to perform it.
Jeremiah 1:12 AMP

When it comes to the Word, God's got His own back, thank you very much.
