Christian inerrantists, those who claim that the Bible is literally “without error,” often present this as a “historical” doctrine. That is, they often claim that the view that the Bible is without error is the result of historical investigation, that the historical claims of the Bible have been tested against real history and have passed that test. The claim that the Bible is without error is then presented a fact established through historical investigation. In this episode, Dan tells us why that simply isn’t the case, and highlights what’s at stake when Christians make this claim.
