Biblical inerrancyBiblical inerrancy
is the view that the Bible
is the Word of God
and is in every detail infallible and without error. This view was ably expressed in 1978
in the Chicago Statement on Biblical Inerrancy
, an interdenominational statement of evangelical scholars and leaders to defend biblical inerrancy against the trend toward liberal and neo-orthodox conceptions of Scripture.
It proclaims: "The authority of Scripture is inescapably impaired if this total divine inerrancy is in any way limited or disregarded, or made relative to a view of truth contrary to the Bible's own; and such lapses bring serious loss to both the individual and the Church."
