Answer: The question is not whether God hardens the heart of man or allows man to follow after his own desires, but whether God himself lies unto man, and the answer is no. God does not lie and the scriptures states just that. . Num 23:19 19 God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the… son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good? . 1 Sam 15:29 29 And also the Strength of Israel will not lie nor repent: for he is not a man, that he should repent. . Titus 1:2 2 In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began; . Heb 6:18 18 That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us: . Answer It is impossible for God to sin. And to lie is a sin, so no. God is holy, so that means He has never sinned. In fact, that's why Adam and Eve got kicked out of the Garden of Eden. They sinned, and God's holiness could not be with that. Yes, God lies by proxy He sends prophets or lying spirits to deceive. 1 Kings 22:23 Now, therefore, behold, the Lord hath put a lying spirit in the mouth of these thy prophets, and the Lord hath spoken evil concerning thee. 2 Chronicles 18:22 Now therefore, behold, the Lord hath put a lying spirit in the mouth of these thy prophets. Jeremiah 4:10 Ah, Lord GOD! surely thou hast greatly deceived this people. Jeremiah 20:7 O Lord, thou hast deceived me, and I was deceived. Ezekiel 14:9 And if a prophet be deceived when he hath spoken a thing, I the Lord have deceived that prophet. 2 Thessalonians 2:11 For this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie.

\nGod never lies. He is perfect. unless you are talking about a false god, which can't help anyone at all.
How could a perfect God create something not perfect - If God cannot sin how could he create sin - If God cannot lie how could he create something that could lie?
God is love and love gives the human free will so we can choose what we do or not do, thus imperfection leads to sin. The saying, "God allowed an event to happen" is not literal. It really means God's gift of 'free will' gave the human a choice to do the right or wrong thing. Thus sin. ___________…________________________________________________________________________ After a lot of research into the various religious beliefs of the highly commercialized regions of the world, I have come to the rational conclusion that God was created in the image and likeness of the rulers of that particular geographic location. These rulers, through their advisors, created religions that targeted the fears of the people at the particular time. These advisors were similar to the marketing consultants and advertising specialists of today. The wealthy people found creative ways of keep the working-class people (slaves) obedient to their whim and fancy. The working class people were threatened with eternal damnation for disobedience to the divine laws and instructions of an invisible authority called God. This God has created you in his image and likeness to obey and serve him with blind faith. This God choose special servants to be his messengers to his humble and obedient subjects. This God also commands that his loyal slaves must kill all those who do not obey his commandments. From the research that I have done on the subject, I am of the opinion that those characters who came up with this God-Satan combination did not expect that the society would one day demand explanations. The to this question is relatively simple. God did not create something that was not perfect. God did not create sin. God did not create lies but He did create a creature with a free will who was perfect but who chose to lie, to become imperfect, to sin. This may be difficult for some to grasp, but it would be hard to imagine a world where all were slaves and robots, with not the slightest possibility of sin, and then also of love and emotion, of joy or delight of any kind. Evidently, the possibility of sin was the price for free-will that God believe worth the eventual cost. And He knew it would eventually cost Him the life of His only Son, Jesus Christ, who dies a cruel death on the cross of Calvary. He die for all, including all those who hate Him and try to reason Him away. He died for also those who don't understand that the Bible encourages thought rather than stifles it. For it is only in truly seeking, that we truly find Him. The The Bible knows absolutely nothing of blind faith. In the beginning, Adam and Eve had clear instructions. They could have sought clarification, but they didn't. They could have checked out if what the serpent said was true, but they didn't. They found out that the serpent lied and God was true, the hard way, and we suffer the consequences. If there are misguided Christians anywhere who promote such a thing as 'blind faith' then they have not read their Bible. In mine it says 'prove everything' which some translate as 'test everything.' This would also include testing the results of Godless philosophies. The 20th century has a good record of that. In short, God created the possibility for humans to sin because He believed it worthwhile to have people who really loved Him and not robots. Their would be many different ways to describe how this is so. But anyone who has ever been lost, and knows they were lost, also knows how good it is to be found. (MORE)

The closest one gets to this is: . 2 Timothy 3:16 (King James Version) . 16All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:. Some versions do use the term 'God-breathed' instead of 'given by inspiratio…n of God', and some have this as an alternative in the margin. The thought is much the same. God is the originator of the scripture, although every individual word has not necessarily been directly dictated as the ten commandments were. (MORE)
As it was explained to me, this is one of those questions that has no direct answer, since there is no place in the Bible where it states "God could not look upon the sin of Jesus". First if all, it was the sin of mankind, not of Jesus; He was totally without sin, but He took the sin of the world up…on himself. When Jesus cried out, "My God, My God, why have You forsaken me"?, He was feeling Himself separated from God for the first time ever. Not because God had truly deserted Him, but because God could not look upon the sin with which Jesus was now covered because He had taken the sins of the world upon Himself. So God had to turn away. Answer: The above answer is an excellent one. The scriptural quote by Jesus: "My God, My God, why hast thou forsaken Me," is actually an inspired passage from Psalms - Ps.22:1. " My God, My God, why hast thou forsaken me? Why art thou so far from helping me, and from the words of my roaring? ...I am a worm, and no man; a reproach of men, and despised of the people. All they that see me laugh me to scorn: they shoot out the lip, they shake the head, saying, He trusted on the Lord that He would delilver Him: let Him deliver Him, seeing He delighted in Him..." (verses 1-8). Psalm 22 turns into a description of the crucifixion of Christ... a description of what He would experience on the tree. "...I am poured out like water, and all My bones are out of joint: My heart is like wax; it is melted in the midst of My bowels... My strength is dried up... My tongue cleaveth to My jaws; and thou hast brought Me into the dust of death. For dogs have compassed Me: the assembly of the wicked have inclosed Me: they pierced My hands and My feet. I may tell all My bones: they look and stare upon Me. They part My garments among them, and cast lots upon My vesture. Be not thou far from Me, O Lord: O My Strength, haste thee to help Me... (verses 14-19). It's impossible to believe, at this time of Jesus' incredible agony, that He would think that now was the right time to merely "quote scripture" just to "fulfill the prophecy". But that by this time, His moment of death, He was at His strongest spiritual connection with His Father... desperately needing that connection to endure it. And that, indeed, His Father truly did look away from His Son as all the vile sins of the world was in that instant of death borne by Him. It is entirely possible that Jesus "didn't know this was going to happen"... and that He was caught totally off guard... and in that instant before His death, He was abandoned by the Father to do exactly what He was there to do: "God (the Father)... hath in these last days spoken unto us by His Son, whom He hath appointed Heir of all things (the universe), by Whom also He made the worlds; who being the Brightness of His glory, and the express image of His Person, and upholding all things by the Word of His Power, when He had BY HIMSELF PURGED OUR SINS , sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on High; being made so much better than the angels, as He hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they." (Heb.1:1-4) (MORE)
Another answer from our community: God shortened mans lifespan to about 70 to 80 years. In fact, theaverage life expectancy of the world is 67.2 years (see the "HumanLife Expectancy" and "Life Expectancy (Google)" links below). Ofcourse, that is an average , some people live longer and somedon't …live as long. Also, it is not normal for people to live farbeyond 80 years, most are dead by that time. It is extremely rare.If it were "normal" then the average life expectancy wouldbe much higher than 67.2 years. Answer: Genesis 6:3 & Psalm 90:10 Originally Designed To BeEternal Initially, man was created to live eternally; there was no death inthe world before Adam sinned. Genesis 3:17 (KJV) And unto Adam he said, Because thou hasthearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree,of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursedis the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all thedays of thy life; Genesis 3:18 (KJV) Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth tothee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field; Genesis 3:19 (KJV) In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread,till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return . Romans 5:12 (KJV) Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into theworld, and death by sin ; and so death passed upon allmen, for that all have sinned: 1st Reduction - On Adam's Sin After Adam sinned, man lived to be about 900 years old. Adam livedto be 930 years and Methusaleh (the oldest person recorded in theBible) lived to be 969 years old. ADAM (930) Genesis 5:5 (KJV) And all the days that Adam lived were ninehundred and thirty years : and he died. METHUSELAH (969) Genesis 5:27 (KJV) And all the days of Methuselah were ninehundred sixty and nine years : and he died. 2nd Reduction - Before The Flood And Up To Joseph Before Noah's flood God began the process of shortening man'slifespan to 120 years. Genesis 6:3 (KJV) And the LORD said, My spirit shall not alwaysstrive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his daysshall be an hundred and twenty years. Before this statement man's average lifespan was around 900 years.After this statement we see the gradual decline of the age ofmankind in the following verses. SHEM (100 + 500 = 600) Genesis 11:10 (KJV) These are the generations of Shem: Shem was anhundred years old, and begat Arphaxad two years after the flood: Genesis 11:11 (KJV) And Shem lived after he begat Arphaxad fivehundred years, and begat sons and daughters. ARPHAXAD (35 + 403 = 438) Genesis 11:12 (KJV) And Arphaxad lived five and thirty years, andbegat Salah: Genesis 11:13 (KJV) And Arphaxad lived after he begat Salah fourhundred and three years, and begat sons and daughters. SALAH (30 + 403 = 433) Genesis 11:14 (KJV) And Salah lived thirty years, and begat Eber: Genesis 11:15 (KJV) And Salah lived after he begat Eber fourhundred and three years, and begat sons and daughters. EBER (43 + 430 = 473) Genesis 11:16 (KJV) And Eber lived four and thirty years, and begatPeleg: Genesis 11:17 (KJV) And Eber lived after he begat Peleg fourhundred and thirty years, and begat sons and daughters. PELEG (30 + 209 = 239) Genesis 11:18 (KJV) And Peleg lived thirty years, and begat Reu: Genesis 11:19 (KJV) And Peleg lived after he begat Reu two hundredand nine years, and begat sons and daughters. REU (32 + 207 = 239) Genesis 11:20 (KJV) And Reu lived two and thirty years, and begatSerug: Genesis 11:21 (KJV) And Reu lived after he begat Serug two hundredand seven years, and begat sons and daughters. SERUG (30 + 200 = 230) Genesis 11:22 (KJV) And Serug lived thirty years, and begat Nahor: Genesis 11:23 (KJV) And Serug lived after he begat Nahor twohundred years, and begat sons and daughters. NAHOR (29 + 119 = 148) Genesis 11:24 (KJV) And Nahor lived nine and twenty years, andbegat Terah: Genesis 11:25 (KJV) And Nahor lived after he begat Terah an hundredand nineteen years, and begat sons and daughters. TERAH (205) Genesis 11:26 (KJV) And Terah lived seventy years, and begat Abram,Nahor, and Haran. Genesis 11:32 (KJV) And the days of Terah were two hundred and fiveyears: and Terah died in Haran. ABRAHAM (175) Genesis 25:7 (KJV) And these are the days of the years of Abraham's life which he lived, an hundredthreescore and fifteen years . ISAAC (180) Genesis 35:28 (KJV) And the days of Isaac were an hundred and fourscore years . JACOB (147) Genesis 47:28 (KJV) And Jacob lived in the land ofEgypt seventeen years: so the whole age of Jacob was anhundred forty and seven years . From Joseph Up To Moses (120 Years Average Lifespan) For at least470 years the average lifespan of man was 120 years, from Joseph upuntil Moses death. JOSEPH (110) Genesis 50:26 (KJV) So Joseph died, being an hundred and ten years old : and they embalmed him, andhe was put in a coffin in Egypt. LEVI (137) Exodus 6:16 (KJV) And these are the names of the sons of Leviaccording to their generations; Gershon, and Kohath, and Merari:and the years of the life of Levi were an hundred thirty and sevenyears. KOHATH (133) Exodus 6:18 (KJV) And the sons of Kohath; Amram, and Izhar, andHebron, and Uzziel: and the years of the life of Kohath were anhundred thirty and three years. AMRAM(137) Exodus 6:20 (KJV) And Amram took him Jochebed his father's sisterto wife; and she bare him Aaron and Moses: and the years of thelife of Amram were an hundred and thirty and seven years. AARON (123) Numbers 33:39 (KJV) And Aaron was an hundredand twenty and three years old when he died in mount Hor. MOSES (120) Deuteronomy 34:7 (KJV) And Moses was an hundredand twenty years old when he died : his eye was not dim, norhis natural force abated. JOSHUA (110) Joshua 24:29 (KJV) And it came to pass after these things, that Joshua the son of Nun, the servant of the LORD, died, being an hundred and ten years old . So, we see the gradual reduction of man's age to about 120 yearsfrom the time right before the flood up until Joseph. The timeperiod from Joseph up to Moses was about 470 years. For about 470years, from Joseph up to Moses, it appears that the averagelifespan was about 120 years. Exodus 12:40 (KJV) Now the sojourning of the children of Israel,who dwelt in Egypt, was four hundred and thirtyyears . Exodus 12:41 (KJV) And it came to pass at the end of the fourhundred and thirty years , even the selfsame day it came topass, that all the hosts of the LORD went out from the land ofEgypt. After the children of Israel came out of Egypt they wandered in thewilderness for 40 years. 430 + 40 = 470 Joshua was contemporary with Moses and lived about 120 years (110to be exact). After Moses, man's lifespan began to be reduced toabout 70 to 80 years. 3rd Reduction - After Moses (70 To 80 Years Average Lifespan) Psalm 90 is a Psalm written by Moses. It discusses the shortness oflife of humans and shows states that the average lifespan is 70 to80 years. Psalms 90:10 (KJV) The days of our years are threescore yearsand ten ; and if by reason of strength they befourscore years , yet is their strength labour and sorrow;for it is soon cut off, and we fly away. An inspection of man's life after Moses shows that the lifespan hadbeen reduced to about 70 to 80 years. ELI (98) 1 Samuel 4:15 (KJV) Now Eli was ninety and eight yearsold ; and his eyes were dim, that he could not see. 1 Samuel 4:16 (KJV) And the man said unto Eli, I am he that cameout of the army, and I fled to day out of the army. And he said,What is there done, my son? 1 Samuel 4:17 (KJV) And the messenger answered and said, Israel isfled before the Philistines, and there hath been also a greatslaughter among the people, and thy two sons also, Hophni andPhinehas, are dead, and the ark of God is taken. 1 Samuel 4:18 (KJV) And it came to pass, when he made mention ofthe ark of God, that he fell from off the seat backward bythe side of the gate, and his neck brake, and he died: for he wasan old man , and heavy. And he had judged Israel fortyyears. DAVID (70) 2 Samuel 5:4 (KJV) David was thirty years old when he began toreign, and he reigned forty years. (70 years) The Dual Views Of Genesis 6:3 Genesis 6:3 (KJV) And the LORD said,My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also isflesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twentyyears . This verse has two views for its meaning: 1. in 120 years the world would be destroyed by a flood 2. man's lifespan would be shortened to an average of 120 years So, we look at the scriptures to see what can be determined forcertain about each claim. Genesis 5:32 (KJV) And Noah was five hundred yearsold : and Noah begat Shem, Ham, and Japheth. We see that Noah was 500 years old when he began having 3 of hischildren, Shem, Ham, and Japheth. Genesis 7:11 (KJV) In the six hundredth year of Noah'slife , in the second month, the seventeenth day of themonth, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep brokenup, and the windows of heaven were opened. Genesis 9:28 (KJV) And Noah lived after the flood threehundred and fifty years . Genesis 9:29 (KJV) And all the days of Noah were nine hundredand fifty years : and he died. We see that Noah lived 600 years before the flood and 350 yearsafter the flood for a total of 950 years. He was 500 when he hadthe 1st of his 3 sons that got on the ark with him. His sons werearound 100 years old (and younger) when they got on the ark. Shemwas 98, see Genesis 11:10. The 1st view (that there would be 120 years until the flood) is a common view point and may be correct. However,there are not any other supporting verses in the Bible that verifythat view point. There is no reference with the age of Noah or anyother contemporaries of Noah that refer to that statement. So, wecan't know for certain that it means specifically "120 years andthen the flood will come." The 2nd view (that man's lifespan would be shortened) can beverified by inspecting the geneaology of Noah's descendants. Thisviewpoint is verified by the scriptures as listed above. Thisviewpoint is correct for certain because we can see, in thescriptures, the reduction of man's lifespan down to 120 years. Consider this: If Genesis 6:3 did not exist in the Bible, it isstill evident that man's lifespan was shortened from: . being infinite, . to about 900 years, . to about 120 years, . to about 70 to 80 years based on the genealogical record found in the Bible.

What is the scripture that specifically says that God remembered the covenant he made with Abraham and the emphasis is on the fact that God remembered?
Answer: The passage in question is found in Exodus 2:24. If God remembered something then it means he was forgetting it. It may be useful to resolve the discrepancy that whether God forgets and remembers as His human creations. A: The resolution is in that "remembered" is more in keeping w…ith "was mindful of"... in that the 400 years of slavery in Egypt He had prophesied was about to expire. "...Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years; and also that nation, whom they shall serve, will I judge: and afterward shall they come out with great substance."

It's found in Luke 17:21 . This is, however, an unfortunate translation in the King James Bible, when you consider to whom Jesus is speaking: "And when He was DEMANDED OF THE PHARISEES , when the Kingdom of God should come, He answered THEM and said..." (verse 20). These are the same ones, al…ong with the scribes, to whom Jesus in another place said: "... woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, HYPOCRITES! For ye shut up the Kingdom of Heaven against men : for ye neither go in yourselves , neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in." (Matt.23:13) Jesus reveals that the Kingdom of God is something " we enter into "... not, it enters into us. Jesus told the Pharisee, Nicodemus: "...Except a man be born again, he cannot SEE the Kingdom of God ." (John 3:3) "...Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot ENTER INTO the Kingdom of God ." (verse 5) The Bible makes it clear that the coming Kingdom of God is something that we ENTER INTO... not, it into us. But, most of all... Jesus NEVER would have told the Pharisees, who were HYPOCRITES, and a GENERATION OF VIPERS out to kill Him -- that the Kingdom of God was within THEM. Some translations, like the RSV, say correctly: "...the Kingdom of God is IN THE MIDST OF YOU ." (Luke 17:21) Jesus was speaking of HIMSELF , the KING of the coming Kingdom of God... who stood in their midst ... because THEY HAD NO CLUE AS TO WHO HE WAS! In Daniel's prophetic book, "king" and "kingdom" are used interchangeably for each other. A king and his kingdom are the same. A kingdom is as the king is. In his interpretation of the composite metals of the "metalic man" in Nebuchadnezzar's dream, Daniel tells him: "... THOU [he, Nebuchanezzar the KING ] art this head of gold." (Dan.2:38) "And after thee shall arise another KINGDOM [less precious metal, silver]inferior to thee, and another third KINGDOM of brass... and the fourth KINGDOM shall be as strong as iron..."

[NKJV] "Immutable" means "fixed; unalterable." That God cannot lie IS one of the two things. The other is His oath, spoken of in verse 17. In other words, there is " strong consolation " because (1) God has confirmed His counsel (or "purpose") with an oath to those who place their trust in Him, and (2) His promises are sure , because He cannot lie.

Keep in mind that there is only one true God, which is the Fatherin heaven. The Father in heaven does not lie, for it would be inconsistentwith His nature if He did so. God is, in general, incapable of lying (Numbers 23:19).
The Scripture says: "You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives" (Genesis 50:20 NIV). "But as for you, ye thought evil against me; [but] God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as [it is] this day, to save much peopl…e alive." (KJV). This was the reassurance of Joseph after his father, Jacob, died , to his brothers who thought he would revenge after the evil they did to him. It applies in the similar light today, when good comes out of evil that was planted our way, or as an encouragement when going through such. (MORE)
Why did God lie? God does not lie. God is not human, that he should lie, not a human being, that heshould change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does hepromise and not fulfill?

I can only speak from my own tradition, Islam. It is only Mankind and Jinn (the unseen creatures of the spirit world referred to as 'ghosts' or 'spirits') who were given free will; therefore, it is only they who will be judged and enter either Heaven or Hell. But if you believe in the One God, the… Day of Judgment, and you are a good person, then you should enter Heaven. If, then, you enter Heaven, then you can have whatever you wish for. So . . . if you love animals, then you may wish for them (or maybe a favorite pet). This may sound humorous to some, but I am completely serious. There is a God, there is a Day of Judgment, there is a Heaven and there is a Hell. (MORE)
It says it in Job 40 2 through 4 it doesn't really say it but that's what it means. I think a better verse is Romans 9:20-21. What right does the clay have to question the potter? Begin at Romans 9:10 for a better understanding of the scripture.
Lying is a choice, so everyone can do it. BUT IT IS WRONG. It may also be a crime in some cases to lie to law enforcementagencies or the courts.
The Kingdom of God is the dwelling place of all the children of God and the whole bible and all scripture point to this eternal invisible dwelling.
That means that the scripture is the INSPIRED word of God, not that God spoke every word of the scripture.
Romans 9. Read the whole thing for context. Note verses 11, 17, and 20-24 (especially this last chunk).
Where is the scripture that says if you do not comply with all of gods law you are guilty of them all?
The verse you have in mind is probably James 2:10 - For whoever shall keep the whole law, and yet stumble in one point, he is guilty of all. [NKJV]

The term 'fools' can mean many things. In general it is people of average intellect that understand something to be wrong or potentially wrong but decide to do it or push it out of their thoughts anyway. This definition the Bible speaks many times against - as a word of advice one could say like 'Th…e fool has said in his heart, "There is no God." (Psalm 14:1). God has established the institution of marriage between one man and one woman to protect, nourish, and rear to adulthood all children they may have (babes). (MORE)
It is not clear what scripture (from what religion) you are talking about. Note that God may be called by other names; for example, in the Old Testament, He is often referred to as Jehova or Yahweh (the spelling may vary). Another Answer: Via the Bible category, the Scripture de…fines God - both the Father and Son - fully enough for mankind to get to know Him and His character (part of His purpose for all mankind). Besides the direct verses describing His Loving and Merciful nature, His names or titles give us the fuller insight into His divine nature. Consider El Shaddai - the 'All-Sufficient God', or El Echad - the One God, or El Olam - the Everlasting God and the most important IMO, Our Father. The list is more inclusive and one may easily google the Names of God to find more as each reflects a bit of His nature and character (MORE)
Does the scriptures say that those who live in the old testament times were pleasing to god because of their faith in god?
The Bible shows us this in several places when it refers to Abraham's faith. Some passages in the New Testament are Romans 4:12-16, Galatians 3:8-9, Hebrews 11:8-11.
Maybe you are thinking of this verse: Deuteronomy 4:40 You shall therefore keep His statutes and His commandments which I command you today, that it may go well with you and with your children after you, and that you may prolong your days in the land which the LORD your God is giving you for all …time." Moses is talking to Israel before they go into the land God has given them. (MORE)
Mat 11:28 Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Mat 11:29 Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. Mat 11:30 For My yoke is easy and My burden is light."
A: . The notion that God inspired the scriptures is a Christian belief necessitated by the claim that the Bible is wholly true and inerrant. Human authors could not have written accurate accounts of events that in many cases they could not have known about. Others say that that\nthe Bible contain…s exactly what God intends to convey, but the absence of error\ndoes not necessarily apply to the incidental, scientific, geographical, or\nhistorical statements in Scripture. A more realistic view of the inspiriation of the scriptures is provided by Professor Alley of the University of Richmond, who is quoted as saying, " While\nsome persons may continue to hold that the historic Christian belief in\nbiblical infallibility and inerrancy is the only valid starting point and\nframework for a theology of revelation, such contentions should be heard with a\nsmile and incorporated into the bylaws of the Flat Earth Society ." . For nearly all the books of the Bible, we do not even know who the authors really were. The first five books of the Bible have long been attributed to Moses, but biblical scholars have long since dismissed this attribution. Some say that books like Daniel and Esther were probably written by characters mentioned in those books, since they would have had the knowledge of events in order to write the books. Yet Daniel and Esther are known to have been novels written in the second century BCE, although set in a period centuries earlier. . We do not even know who wrote the New Testament gospels, in spite of them having been attributed to Matthew, Mark, Luke and John since later in the second century. Similarly, most of the New Testament epistles are really pseudepigraphical. . We have to read the Bible and take from it what benefits us spiritually, at the same time realising that in most cases we will never know who wrote the books that make up the Bible. . (MORE)

Where is there a scripture that says showing your love for god by loving and helping your brothers and sisters?
This is a very common concept in the New Testament, but off the topof my head I can't think of a place that says it in so many words.
