is not literal, and is full of errors, what is the basis of your salvation? How do you know you are saved? Are you born again? How do you know? How can you trust that part of Scripture to be God's Word and not others? I'm not trying to be facetious here, but it would seem these "liberal" and "conservative" viewpoints are divided along two lines: Those who believe the Bible is the Inspired Holy Word of God, literally, And those who don't. So if we can't agree on the starting premise of the inerrancy of the Scriptures, what foundation is there for any discussion or meaningful debate? It would seem all debates and discussions are going to continue ending in endless circles without resolution unless there is some common foundation in God's Word.
