Selina O'Grady, author of And Man Created God,
cites that the science seems to point towards the Bible being a literary work. She argues that the Bible was, at best, inspired by the life of Jesus who was an ordinary man and did not actually live a life of celibacy. Jesus' followers, in particular, Paul, embellished Jesus's life story post-mortem in a cult-like fashion, and that is how the celibate, miracle-performing Jesus the world has come to know was born. Therefore, the Bible is not God's direct words, and Scripture is not sacred. 
Additionally, studies show a year-on-year decline in the number of people who believe the Bible is the literal Word of God. In 2017 this stood at only 24%, a record low.
