What is biblical inerrancy?
“The inerrancy of Scripture means that Scripture in the original manuscripts does not affirm anything that is contrary to fact.”
On his Facebook page evangelical leader Al Mohler posted the following,
“The affirmation of biblical inerrancy means nothing more, and nothing less, than this: When the Bible speaks, God speaks.”
I’m still trying to wrap my mind around this ongoing controversy about the so-called biblical inerrancy. I say “so-called” because of all the debates surrounding it.
I found the following from John Frame to be quite helpful in this ongoing debate:
“Inerrancy, therefore, means that the Bible is true, not that it is maximally precise. To the extent that precision is necessary for truth, the Bible is sufficiently precise. But it does not always have the amount of precision that some readers demand of it. It has a level of precision sufficient for its own purposes, not for the purposes for which some readers might employ it…
“When we say that the Bible is inerrant, we mean that the Bible makes good on its claims.”
Perhaps we need another term–biblical absolutism?
