Can I Trust the Word of God?

Why is the doctrine of inerrancy so important?

Affirming the inerrancy of scripture is very significant. There would be many probelms arise if it were not for the Bibles inerrancy. If there were errors, Grudem puts it, “We begin to wonder if we can really trust Go in anything He says.” What parts are true. A sense of doubt would arise in every passage, I wonder if this is accurate. If I had recently purchased four new tires and one of the malfunctioned I wouldn’t trust any of them. I would go back and all new tires. There might not be anything wrong with the other three tires, I simply would not trust them. This would go the same way when it comes to trusting God and anything He might have to say.

Another reason it is so important. We would be claiming to know more than God does. First off why would we want to serve a God that we are superior to intellectually, and secondly who are we to think we know better than God? This way of thinking is sinful.

The doctrine of innerancy is vitally important. If the word of God is the foundation on which our faith is built upon, we shouldn’t have to figure out where to stand, we must embrace the entire word of God as our rock. We see this spelled out in 2 Timothy 3:16 “All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness,” That verse clearly state “all” scripture is breathed out by God and profitable. If we accurately read what the scripture was intended to say it will not fail us.
