The above scripture in 1 Timothy (one we're all familiar with) is the scripture used by Witnesses, and I assume other religions, to 'prove' that the bible was "written" by God whereby He communicated all the passages to the men writing. This doesn't make alot of sense to me, because the word "inspire" can have alot of different meanings, as I've copied from the Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary below.
While I definitely believe in God, I think that #5 is probably closer to the truth. If I write a book or a song and say I was inspired by Elvis, that doesn't mean that Elvis wrote it or even approved it-----it simply means that I wrote it with him in mind.
With regards to the bible, I believe that the men who wrote it, most definitely wrote it with God in mind. So you could say that yes, "all scripture is inspired of God". But that doesn't mean that God wrote it Himself or even put His seal of approval on it..........your thoughts?
