i think we should debate the inerrancy/errancy of the bible, and the importance of each.
i feel that the bible was written by man, which is imperfect. i also feel that one's spirituality and faith should not be based entirely on the bible, nor should it be based on the inerrancy of the bible. that means if there is one single simple error in the bible, than it proves to be useless. and the fact that there are thousands of different factions of christianity proves that the bible can be interpreted more than one way. saying the bible is inerrant would mean that only one of those factions would be right, and all the others would be wrong. i think when one reads the bible that they keep in mind that man did write the bible, imperfect man. and further more, that the bible is a selection of only a few of the many many many books written that were "inspired by god."
