Perhaps the nearest thing to a consensus on the Baptist Board is the truth and infallibility of scripture. While we sometimes differ on what scripture means, almost no one approaches particular passages with skepticism. The Bible is the inspired and infallible word of God. Why do you believe it to be so? Possible answers could be: • It lines up with extra biblical historical accounts. • Sixty-six books by thirty something writers could not present such a unified tapestry without divine inspiration. • The ancient church declared it to be so. • I know in my heart that the Bible is true. • It has been such a part of my lifelong culture that I cannot possibly imagine the Bible to be anything but the inspired word of God. I don’t intend to debate anyone on this thread but if others think it appropriate to debate, I will follow them with interest. So go ahead, tell us why you believe the Bible to the inspired and infallible word of God.
