I am an evangelical Christian. I also align myself with historic, orthodox (lowercase “o”), catholic (lower case “c”), Christianity (upper case “C”). This means that, among other things, I affirm the innerancy, infallibility, inspiration and authority of scripture.
But what does that mean?
Whatever it means, it should mean the same thing no matter what parts of the biblical canon we are talking about.
Here is my question:
IF THE BIBLE IS INERANT, INFALLIBLE, INSPIRED and AUTHORITATIVE… what does that mean in terms of these two passages?
In other words, in what ways are these passages AUTHORITATIVE? Or INERANT? etc?
For this discussion, I am particularly interested in those willing to allow for the “if” assumption above… but of course, all are welcomed to comment!
So comment away…
