 INERRANCY

Do you believe the Bible is totally infallible and inerrant containing no errors whatsoever in ALL matters that it speaks of?

Or do you believe there are a few errors here and there that we should not be concerned about because they are trivial and may be due to things like a lack of knowledge in that day etc?

Do you believe that Bible you read is mistake free from cover to cover in all things it states or is the reality otherwise but what you have is good enough to get you by?

 Re: INERRANCY

2 Peter 1:20-21 KJV
Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. [21] For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.

2 Timothy 3:16-17 KJV
All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: [17] That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.

Proverbs 30:5-6 KJV
Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him. [6] Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.

-----------

2 Timothy 2:23 KJV
But foolish and unlearned questions avoid, knowing that they do gender strifes.

 Re: INERRANCY

There are 2 kinds of errors. Factual error and spiritual errors. Factual error is one in which certain facts can go wrong. There can be factual errors in the Bible, for example the name of the Prophet is mentioned wrong in NT while referring to the Prophesy. Some might argue that the original script just had prophet in it; but I have checked the earliest manuscripts available and the names are wrong in them. Again it does not bother me 1 bit to accept factual errors.

Spiritually with respect to the nature of God, I believe Bible is consistent. There is not a single place where God hates man etc. God is always a loving God. There is not a single place where God tolerates sin, he is always against sin consistently in the Bible.

 Re: INERRANCY

I believe the original manuscripts were likely error free (but I think Paul may have had a “slip of the pen” in 1 Cor. 14).

There may have been some copying errors, especially in some of the battle numbers in the OT historical books.

I don’t think there are any errors of substantial importance that effect doctrine etc with the possible exception in 1 Cor 14 mentioned above, but even that is not a huge deal.

 Re:

If you see what you think is an error, keep studying and you will find you, in fact, are the one with the misconception. Remember Jesus quoted from the Old Testament. He wouldn't quote a book with errors.

Where might there be an example of that? I'm sincerely asking.

Maybe he quoted the parts without any mistakes.

 Re:

"Now about the midst of the feast Jesus went up into the temple, and taught. And the Jews marvelled, saying, How knoweth this man letters, having never learned?" John 7:14,15

Probably because He was the one who wrote the Bible... I don't think He needed to consult textual critics for an accurate translation.
