or are they essentially same in meaning?
free from error; infallible.
1. absolutely trustworthy or sure: an infallible rule.
2. unfailing in effectiveness or operation; certain: an infallible remedy.
3. not fallible; exempt from liability to error, as persons, their judgment, or pronouncements: an infallible principle
so pretty much no in the words themselves. must people talk about the apographs (the originals) as "inerrant" and the translations as infallible, from what I've seen at least.
So Inerrant means originals recorded exactly what God intended them to write dowm while infallible mans what was written down absolute truthful free of error?
Inerrant usually refers to the original autographs being completely free from any errors. According to The Chicago Statement on Biblical Inerrancy:
yes generally inerrant means originals are what God intended to say, and no infallible means that the inerrant originals are preserved and thus infallible (without errors)
or the originals were without errors because God inspired (breathed out) the words to penman to write down, then He (God) preserved them and protected them to remain without errors. lots of theological words in explaining this. verbal plenary inspiration, preservation, inerrant, infallible (it is kind of redundant to say Inerrant, Infallible Word of God-I hate redundancy, but you know it makes sense for this to say IT IS TRUE!)
