When we sit down, relax, take a deep breath, and examine God; its characteristics; its alleged feats, we will find God an abstraction; a concept; an idea; a meme.
The bible then, is not God's word, it's a collection of concepts; ideas; memes, of human origin, meant to convey the untangible.
The bible, like most, if not all, ecclesial books, tales about cosmology, anthropology, ontology, philosophy and so on, with a lot of opinion in between - that's about it really.

if not, one is mistaken, dishonest
or ...... but let's not go there .....
