Is the Bible, really, the words of God or the words of men claiming to be God?

Christians always make the claim that the Bible is the word of their God, and according to the Bible itself Revelation 22:18-9, "For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and [from] the things which are written in this book."
However, with all these different versions, add quotes and words and reduced verses of the "word of God", put forth by many different Christian's cults, it is stupid, for any right thinking person, to accept this as fact.
It appears, to me, that not even the religious leaders really believed their claims. In addition, it is also clear that these religious or cult leaders are not afraid, even though they teach believers to be, of this God, of which they speak. For example, although "God" supposedly said that "if any man shall take away from the words of the book, the Bible, of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city", a place where all Christians are wishing to go; they, however, continue to disobey their God's command by adding and taking our from his supposed words.
Recently, it is reported that a new updated version of "God words" is in the making. God, who supposedly created and know all things, words needs to be updated, how about that?

According to the report "A worldwide publisher held a gathering at a Memphis church at which attendees offered handwritten passages for an updated Bible, participants say.
Project head Lissa Stoddard said last weekend's event at Christ United Methodist Church allowed the Zondervan publishing group to gather suggested Bible passages for a New International Version Bible 30th anniversary edition, the Memphis Commercial-Appeal said Monday."


Also, according to the Commercial-Appeal "the 1978 NIV Bible limited the King James Version's 13,173 verses to 13,102."

This is what they think "We thought it would be a neat family experience"

It is all a pack of man-made lies. The xtian cult, along with islam and judaism, are all crimes against man and nature.
