Who Wrote the Bible?

Just pointing out a logical fallacy in the web page "Who Wrote the Bible" (not the book). "If God exists and the Bible is the word of the Lord, then everything that Christians believe is true." The dependent clause is not a necessary consequence of the first. The imitation of perfection is not necessarily perfect, only a perfect imitation of the perfect is perfect. Since Christians are flawed, are sinners, and act contrary to the wishes of God--for as Roman 7:15 says, "For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do."--then what they believe can be false, without in any way reflecting on the veracity of the Bible.
