Here’s a challenge from an article titled “6 Things Christians Should Just Stop Saying.” Steve McSwain says, “Christians must stop saying…the Bible is the inerrant, infallible Word of God”:
It isn't inerrant and not likely even in the "original manuscripts." But then, I cannot say that with absolute certainty, anymore than anyone else can either.
Why? Because no such "original" manuscripts even exists. That's like saying, "We believe there are aliens on other planets!"
Is it meaningless to say the original documents were inerrant? If not, why not? Tell us how you would respond to this challenge in the comments below, then we’ll hear Alan’s response on Thursday.
