Do you believe the Word of God is Infallible and Inerrant?
Desiringfruitfulness.ca maintains that God’s Word is both infallible and inerrant.
Infallible Means Trustworthy – When referring to Scripture, the term infallible is means reliable and trustworthy. It refers to something that is without any type of defect and therefore those who trust its teachings will never be lead astray.
Inerrancy Means There Are No Errors – Inerrancy contends that the Bible does not have any errors, fact, or any statements that are contradictory. Inerrancy deals with details of Scripture and not just the concepts.
