Is it highly important or something you think can be negotiated?
Verbal plenary inspiration and full innerancy are non-negotiables for me, and its what I teach.
Do you divide over the issue?
How do I really think about it? It is absolutely
inerrant. If you don't think so, you are mistaken.
Can't get much more hard-nosed than that, I
yes, no, yes.
Inerrancy is something we have to attest to before an altar with the KJV sitting on it everyday at 7 p.m. at the local church.
Just kidding (I really hope I didn't offend anyone in someway).
I believe the belief in inerrancy of the scriptures is where belief in God begins because it is how God reveals himself to us.
Like Abiyah said:
It is very important at our church...so much so,that you can not be a member unless you agree to that basic fundamental.
Yes & no
So important, that we base membership upon it. Non-negotiable.
Inerrancy is all important. What we think inerrancy means is something else.
Non-negoitable for me. It is absolutely vital!
Inerrant, inspired, infallable--must be, gotta be, is!!
Let me use this analogy---every now and then I will get a ruler out to draw me a straight line on a piece of paper---the ruler needs to be as straight as an arrow in order for me to make that straight line down the sheet---burns me up when the pencil hits a "nick" in the ruler and then I have a "dip" in the line I tried to draw!
God's word---no "nicks", "Pings" or "echoes"--its the Lord Jesus Christ shootin' straight from the hip!! If God's ruler isn't straight--how are we gonna draw us a straight line to live by??
Inerrantcy means: Not straying from the proper course, standards or wandering outside the established limits. Therefor the Bible being the inerrant word of God... would be very important to a Christian, if the Bible could be disputed as being errant or false, the Bible would be commonly accepted as a story book or history book perhaps...and that is often where other religions or athiests try to tear down our foundation for believing what we believe. if the word of God is not true...what basis is there for believing?

So Innerantcy means true. ie: the Bible is the innerant word of God...or the Bible is the true word of God?
What is the difference in your minds between someone saying that the Bible is "inerrant" (no error) and saying that the Bible is "fully reliable" (fully trustworthy)?
I was always taught that the only things that were "inerrant" were the autographs. From there, errors were introduced, though God preserved the basic "spirit" of His Word. Don't know that I believe that way. If God was powerful enough to give us His Word, shouldn't he be powerful enough to preserve it, inerrantly?
Innerancy is Very Important! The Word of God must be without error, or else how do we as poor humans know what part is true and what part is error?
The same God who gave us His word also promised to keep, preserve, His word. If He couldn't do that, how could I trust Him to keep my soul?
