    If God's word is God breathed through the Holy Spirit while people are writing these letters that are in the Holy Bible then technically what Paul wrote in his letters is really Jesus speaking through Paul so technically there Jesus's words and not Paul's.

    Yes, that is what I was taught in my churchgoing youth.

    One of our ministers would sometimes wave his Bible over his head at the pulpit and say, "If there's even one word in this book that is wrong, you can just toss the whole book into the trash can."

    Not everything Paul said he got from Christ.

    Maybe it would help if you quote the part of the Bible that says this.

    Not knowing is easy.

    Edit: I assume the choice of which writings are "scripture" was divinely guided, too. Is this covered in the bible?

    That refers to 'scripture' not 'the Bible'. I guess you could claim the writer being inspired, knew what would go into the Bible. Of course then you need to deal with the fact that I have my own version of the Bible with a few more books than the one you have, and my copy has that exact same verse, so my copy must also be wholly inspired.

    The extra books just have good to know stuff, in my opinion.

    Which is clearly a mistake on his part, since if one can find a single contradictory statement - and they do exist - the faith of his entire congregation is compromised.
