A. The Bible is the Word of God.
(means, all the words we read are the Words of God)
B. The Bible contains the Word of God.
(means, not all the words we read are the Words of God)
C. other than A and B.
I decided that while I was with you I would forget everything except Jesus Christ, the one who was crucified
The speaker is human, the Apostle.
The question is : are those words above the words of God ?
To me, the answer is no. Those words are the words of human not the words of God.
If I say that those words are the words of God, --->
then (X) the "I" in those words means God himself ---->
Then (Y) it become : through the mouth of the Apostle, God tell the hearers/readers that He (capital H) decided while He was with them, He would forget everything except His Second Person of His Trinity, the one who was crucified.
Because X and Y to me feel awkward, I conclude [not all the words we read in the Bible are the Words of God]. Then it's B. But this is only my own logic.
That's why I would like to know :
according to the ELCA is it A ? B ? or C?
If C, what is it ?
