In recent months we have had some scattered discussions on this topic. It has come up in several threads, including https://forums.anglican.net/threads/terms-and-rules-proposed-amendment-to-ii-3-scripture.3898/page-4 and https://forums.anglican.net/threads/fasting-before-holy-communion.3935/page-2#post-38842 . Perhaps we can bring these disparate thoughts together into this topical thread, for the sake of better organizing our thoughts and for future searchers of truth. We should begin by establishing, if possible, a commonly agreeable definition of the terms, "inerrant" and "infallible." For these, I propose to borrow definitions from the Chicago Statement of Faith (1978), found here: http://www.bible-researcher.com/chicago1.html (The entire document is not very long and worth reading.) Scripture is Infallible: it is true and reliable in all the matters it addresses; neither misleading nor misled, it is a sure, safe, and reliable rule and guide in all matters. Scripture is Inerrant: it is free from all falsehood, fraud, deceit, and mistake, and so safeguards the truth that Holy Scripture is entirely true and trustworthy in all its assertions.
