I accept the idea that those who wrote scripture were moved by the Holy Spirit. I think the phrase "God-breathed" says a lot. The human authors were deeply touched by the authenticity of their encounter with God and I believe they encountered the living "breathing" God in a manner where He actually manifested more of Himself than was typical which was part of why it "inspired" them to share with the rest of us. However, what they wrote and what they understood was nothing more than the sense THEY made of the encounter.
The bible is therefore a book that allows us to examine for ourselves just how certain people responded to an unusual and highly authentic encounter with YHWH.
But this idea that the text is not only authentically true but also somehow inerrant or credible in every assertion, is just wishful thinking by people who are intimidated by the task of taking responsibility for their own perspective and therefore are hoping God will help them bypass the process of making sense of things. The popular view of scripture stunts our genuine growth toward God and makes us use the authors of scripture as our filter or mediator instead of taking up the opportunity to encounter God for ourselves first hand.
And today Christ lives in the believer. Talk about God-breathed! WOW!
