The scriptures reveal much to us about the life and teachings of the Master and about the nature of God's love. God the Spirit is the true author of the Bible, but this does not mean that every word, taken on its own, is holy or inspired. It is not the words in themselves, but rather the meaning that is inspired. The language used by those who wrote the books of the Bible was the language of everyday, not the language of spirit. Only when we make direct contact with the author, that is, with God the Spirit, can the meaning become clear. Just as many do not understand the Master, so too, they can not understand his words.
God has create us with spiritual faculties and powers, but these must be used or else they will decay and be lost. Faith must be fixed on the living God.
