I thank thee, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hidden these things from the wise and understanding and revealed them to babes; yea, Father, for such was thy gracious will.

Christendom's False Doctrines
#6 - The Errant Doctrine of Biblical Inerrancy
The False Teaching

A Catholic Statement The Bible not only contains the word of God: it is the word of God. The primary author is the Holy Ghost, or, as it is commonly expressed, the human authors wrote under the influence of Divine inspiration.... (the scriptures) are sacred and canonical "because, having been written by inspiration of the Holy Ghost, that have God for their author, and as such have been handed down to the Church" The inerrancy of the Bible follows as a conse- quence of this Divine authorship. Wherever the sacred writer makes a statement as his own, that statement is the word of God and infallibly true, whatever be the subject matter of the statement.
A Baptist Statement: The Holy Bible was written by men divinely inspired and is God's revelation of Himself to man. It is a perfect treasure of divine instruction. It has God for its author, salvation for its end, and truth, without any mixture of error, for its matter. Therefore, all Scripture is totally true and trustworthy.
An evangelical statement: Being wholly and verbally God-given, Scripture is without error or fault in all its teaching, no less in what it states about God's acts in creation, about the events of world history, and about its own literary origins under God, than in its witness to God's saving grace in individual lives.
That's the lie!
Exposing the Error

We need only show one clear error in the Bible to expose this evil doctrine. First, hear Moses: You shall therefore keep my statutes and my ordinances, by doing which a man shall live: I am the LORD. (Lev.18:5)  Next hear Jesus: A man asked Jesus what he must do to receive eternal life. Jesus said, What is written in the law? How do you read? And he answered, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself." And he said to him, You have answered right; do this, and you will live. (Lk.10:26-28) These agree; but Now hear Paul, on the same subject: I was once alive apart from the law, but when the commandment came, sin revived and I died; the very commandment which prom- ised life proved to be death... (Rom.7:9f}  For we hold that a man is justified by faith apart from works of law.(Rom.3:28)  This exposes yet another error. Hear James: You see that a man is justified by works and not by faith alone. (Ja. 2:24)

Someone errs here, and it is in the Bible.  The Book, both Old and New Testaments, is replete with errors and contradictions of all types - factual, historical, scientific and doctrinal. This one false doctrine - biblical inerrancy - is Christendom's front line of defense against the Word of Truth and leads astray all who believe it. And Jesus says: And many false prophets will arise and lead many astray.(Mt.24:11)
 That's the Truth!
Declaring the Truth
The inerrancy doctrine is a red herring that Christians drag across the Way to lead many astray. The question is, ''Where do we go for the Truth - to the whole Bible?" No, only to Jesus: I am the way, the truth and the life; no one comes to the father except through me. (Jn.14:6) He rebuked others for doing exactly the same thing the Christians are doing now: You search the scriptures, because you suppose in them to be having eternal life, and these are those witnessing concerning me. And you do not want to come to me in order that you have life(Jn.5:39f)What is the reason for errors in the "scripture?" Moses erred when he allowed divorce; Jesus explains:>Moses tolerated it to you because of your hard heartedness. This did not come to pass from the beginning.(Mt.19:8)Moses erred much, and so the Bible errs. For example, You have heard that it was said by Moses, (Dt.19;210): Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth. But I say to you not to oppose evil, but whoever strikes the right side of your cheek, turn to him the other also.(Mt.5:38f) Where the scriptures err, and they err much, it is mainly due to the hard hearts of the people. The NT (except Jesus Words) is the same story, with the same result. It errs due to the hardness of hearts. O that today you would hearken to his voice! Harden not your hearts . . (Ps.95:7f) More
Only Jesus is the Truth!
