Great discussion on Inerrancy

In the first approximately 51 minutes and the last phone call, Dr. White has a great discussion on the doctrine of the Inerrancy of Scripture including the discussions between Peter Williams and Bart Ehrman and then Michael Licona and Richard Howe.  Dr. White pin pointed the difference between a dictation theory of Inerrancy vs. the Plenary Verbal Inspiration view that understands that God uses human language, personality, styles, circumstances to guide the writers to the final written product. (2 Peter 1:20-21; 2 Timothy 3:16)   Note the open phones section of the last 25 or so minutes; and the last caller that asked about Bart Ehrman also.  Very helpful.  One of the phone calls was about Critical Race Theory and the whole Social Justice movement.  A very substantial Dividing Line program.

About Ken Temple

I am a follower of Jesus Christ. I am a sinner who has been saved by the grace of God alone (Ephesians 2:8-9), through faith alone (Galatians 2:16; Romans 3:28; 4:1-16), in Christ alone (John 14:6). But a true faith does not stay alone, it should result in change, fruit, good works, and deeper levels of repentance and hatred of my own sins of selfishness and pride. I am not better than you! I still make mistakes and sin, but the Lord is working on me, conforming me to His character. (Romans 8:28-29; 2 Corinthians 3:16-18) When I do sin, I hate the sin as it is an affront to God, and seek His forgiveness in repentance. (Mark 1:15; 2 Corinthians 7:7-10; Colossians 3:5-16 ) Praise God for His love for sinners (Romans 5:8), shown by the voluntary coming of Christ and His freely laying down His life for us (John 10:18), becoming flesh/human (John 1:1-5; 1:14; Philippians 2:5-8), dying for sins of people from all nations, tribes, and cultures (Revelation 5:9), on the cross, in history, rising from the dead (Romans 10:9-10; Matthew 28, Mark 16:1-8; Luke 24; John 20-21; 1 Corinthians chapter 15). His resurrection from the dead proved that Jesus is the Messiah, the eternal Son of God, the word of God from eternity past; and that He was all the gospels say He was and that He is truth and the life and the way to salvation. (John 14:6)
