Is the bible always right?

May 26, 2020    Zach McAlack

When properly interpreted scripture is completely true and accurate on everything that it intends to speak. Inerrancy applies only to the autographa but teaches that the scriptures in their original writing were completely without error.
As a member of the Evangelical Theological Society, I uphold the Chicago Statement of Inerrancy. In short: all of the autographa of scripture when properly interpreted, is true and without error in all subjects in which is speaks. It is the revelation of God to all people and is authoritative in all areas of life.
AUTOGRAPHA: the original handwritten documents of the bible. I believe that God inspired the original authors of scripture to divinely write his words. This means that the inerrancy of their words applies only to the original documents, the scribe who copied those scriptures and the later translators were NOT inspired by God. I do deny that the 1611 edition of the KJV is the inerrant, inspired word of God.
