I have read it more than once on these forums, that the Catholic Church wrote the Bible. I disagree.
The Old Testament is over 75% of the Bible and it existed before the Church. Lets get that out of the way.
The Holy Spirit did not inspire the Church to write the books of the New Testament but inspired individuals to write. These individuals were surely members of that same Church but the Church herself did receive inspiration from the Holy Spirit to write Scripture. James, Jude, John, Matthew, Mark, Luke, Paul, Peter (and I believe Apollos but that’s for another thread) were all individuals. They may have written on behalf of the Church or written to the Church as their audience but I don’t think it possible to claim that their inspired writings are the work of the Church. The best we can say is that the Catholic Church determined the canon of Scripture.
Maybe it’s semantics but I actually think that it makes us look silly when we say that the Church wrote the Bible.
