Since I've let go of the idea of "the bible is God's Word", it seems that the whole world is opening up. For example
"God Word is true(th)" and conversely, "(that which is) truth is God's Word." To put it plainly, anything that is true is God's Word, because God's word is Truth."
Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life."
Now, you might ask, how does that work out in our daily lives? For example, in any situation, instead of asking "what does the Bible say about this", I simple ask (myself or a trusted advisor), "What is the right thing to do?" What is the honorable and noble thing to do?" Of course there are some principles and guidelines (from the Bible and other good books) that can help us. For example, "Do onto others as you would have them do unto you"
When we come into any situation, as we find what is true in that situation, that truth is God's word.
