Inerrancy? Pt.3 Introduction

David Law, in his book, Inspiration, writes: ‘The most powerful argument against biblical inerrancy ... is that it fails to do justice to the phenomena of the Bible’ (89).

First, and I mean this honestly, before reading the following post I want to warn readers whose faith is dependant on the bible being without error. If your faith is so grounded, then please pray before reading it - I don’t want to damage your relationship with God in any way.

Having said that, I believe it is healthy to accept the bible for what it is, to love it for what it is, not for what it isn’t. Were that clearer in our churches and bible institutes, I suspect there would be fewer Funks, Ehrmans and the like running around.

Anyway, in the comments of my last post on inerrancy, Guy asked me: ‘Chris, Could you give us an example of what you consider to be an error in the Bible?’ It is to this question I turn this evening.
