So while there are different interpretations and viewpoints on some issues the discrepancy is because of our humanity, not the divine author.

This foundational doctrine of Christianity reflects on the character of God and undergirds everything the Bible teaches. The truth does matter for if it is not reliable on what do we base our beliefs?
