The Bible was not handed to mankind by God, actually it had nothing to do with God. The Bible was VOTED to be the word of God by a group of men during the 4th century. The Roman Emperor Constantine (274-337 CE) was the first Roman Emperor to convert to Christianity and needed a single canon to be agreed upon by the Christian leaders to unify the remains of the Roman Empire. Until this time the various Christian leaders could not decide which books would be considered “holy” and thus “the word of God” and which ones would be excluded and not considered the word of God. He used what motivates many to action – money! He offered the various Church leaders money to agree upon a single canon that would be used by all Christians as the word of God. The Church leaders gathered together at the Council of Nicaea and voted the “word of God” into existence.
