Rock Ledge Ranch, Colorado Springs - “A Light Unto Our Path”

Inerrancy of Scripture

Whereas inspiration concerns the origin of the Bible’s authority, inerrancy describes its nature. By inerrancy we refer not only to the Bible’s being “without error” but also to its inability to err (we might helpfully illustrate this point by comparing it to the distinction between Jesus’ sinlessness or being without sin, on the one hand, and his impeccability or inability to sin on the other). Inerrancy, positively defined, refers to a central and crucial property of the Bible, namely, its utter truthfulness.

The basis for the doctrine of biblical inerrancy is located both in the nature of God and in the Bible’s teaching about itself. First, if God is perfect—all-knowing, all-wise, all-good—it follows that God speaks the truth. God does not tell lies; God is not ignorant. God’s Word is thus free from all error arising either from conscious deceit or unconscious ignorance. Such is the unanimous confession of the psalmist, the prophets, the Lord Jesus and the apostles. Second, the Bible presents itself as the Word of God written. Thus, in addition to its humanity (which is never denied), the Bible also enjoys the privileges and prerogatives of its status as God’s Word. God’s Word is thus wholly reliable, a trustworthy guide to reality, a light unto our path.

American Mother’s Chapel, Colorado Springs - “Come Now”

Learn to do good; Seek justice, 
correct oppression; 
Bring justice to the fatherless, 
plead the widow’s cause. 

 Come now, let us reason together, 
says the Lord
though your sins are like scarlet, 
they shall be as white as snow; 
though they are red like crimson, 
they shall become like wool. 
 If you are willing and obedient, 
you shall eat the good of the land; 
 but if you refuse and rebel, 
you shall be eaten by the sword; 
for the mouth of the Lord has spoken.”

Isaiah 1:17-20
