Biblical Inerrancy

let’s be reasonable

If we make the claim that the Bible is inerrant, we invite people to prove us otherwise, and so we create lifetime skeptics that can not move past our alleged Biblical inerrancy to see the message of love and hope contained within its pages.

As Christians, we must never put the Bible on a pedestal, so that we force others to look up to it. We are to guide others to look up to God. The Bible, and anything other than a personal relationship with God, is a platform to knowing God. We must always worship God in spirit and truth, and we lead others to do the same.

The writers of the Gospels did not have to have all their “facts” right; they wrote what they believed was truth. They didn’t have to have every word perfect, because if we look at the different translations and source materials we have today, how can anyone come up with the same dots and tittles, when we can’t even agree on basic tenets of theology? The Bible is a *collection* of scriptures. They can be harmonized, but forcing others to agree that the dots and tittles of English translations must be identical across the board is unreasonable. The message endures, and that is what we are to spread as Gospel.

I'm on the left, and that's my grandfather, Sam on the right. I was proud to be the one who got to sit on his right hand side, that day. That was the last day I saw him, and it was a good day. Sam was a good man, and he and I were a lot alike. He is guiding me, now, on a mission to minister to those who have a deep need to know Yahweh's love for them. I am available anytime to help.

  1. Jeremiah, thanks for this honest post. I agree with what you said here: “They can be harmonized, but forcing others to agree that the dots and tittles of English translations must be identical across the board is unreasonable.” Honestly, the longer I have been a Christian, the more unsure I am of certain theological positions I adhere to. However, God’s love for me has never changed. I think honesty is a pivotal key to this whole endeavor. Blessings!

    1. Hi, Chad! Thank you for your comment! I am just now seeing it, so please excuse the lateness of my reply. I have adjusted my notifications, so I will be quicker to respond.

      When we demonize others into accepting the entire Bible as fact, we unintentionally force them into idolizing the Bible, and they believe that Yahweh is only found by looking down into a book, when in fact, He is transcendent throughout the Universe. He is through all and all in all. The Bible is a platform to knowing God, yes, but if one is too busy reading the Bible, they are missing their opportunity to experience their relationship with Yahweh.

  2. yes, yes, yes!
    The purpose is a relationship with God, and everything else is a tool. To put anything above God or on the same level as God, inclines towards idolatry, even if that something is the Bible.

    1. Religion, yes. To know Jesus better, but the power of the message goes against our flesh. Religion is stuck in the motions, without the act of faith. The writers were “dooped” into taking Jesus’ every detail, to include every precept, in order to prove the higher-ups godly, as we know it. Jesus knew this further, and knowing all, seeing all, there at all times with God, unchanged, and sovereign, loved us in the example of His Father. I would like to scower or extrapolate a verse or knowledge, like, “we are made in the image of God” and the products of His faithfulness. God changes us through His manifesting authority, apparent in all measures.

      God changed Saul from the life of murdering Christians, and gave Peter the hope from a religious dynamic that Peter awaited, through the faith of being the Rock of the church. God did not frown on Peter for his heavenly desires of the kingdom come (God on Earth), yet had mercy on his heart for him to deliver the gospel and Spirit of Truth. To know and for Jesus to be known is the “game changing” Truth of the Bible.

    2. I cannot agree more! If people only realized how much happier they would be if they closed the Bible and opened their eyes to Yahweh! He loves us and wants us to know Him, the LIVING God!!
