Can we disagree well about Biblical Inerrancy? - The Whole Church Podcast

Episode 213

Can we disagree well about Biblical Inerrancy?

Pete Enns joins Joshua Noel and TJ (Tiberius Juan) Blackwell to discuss the doctrine of Biblical Inerrancy, the problems Pete has with the doctrine, and whether there is a way for Christians to have unity when we often disagree over this doctrine that is fundamental to so many. Inerrancy is often a doctrine of great significance for more conservative, evangelical churches, but there are many Christians like Pete Enns and our hosts who care deeply about the Bible, but do not agree that the Bible is inerrant.


Does Bible ever claim inerrancy? Is biblical inerrancy heresy? What Scripture says about Bible inerrancy? When did biblical inerrancy become a thing? Which Christians don t believe in biblical inerrancy? Is the Bible inerrant or infallible? Where in the Bible does it say every word is true? If the Bible can be wrong, how do we relate to and understand God? Can the Bible be wrong? How do we know the Bible is true?


In this episode, we will:

  • Deconstruct what is meant by Biblical Inerrancy
  • Explore the limits of Christian Unity in light of fundamental disagreements
  • Discuss the importance and levels of truth in the Bible
  • Explain the kinds of literature and intentions behind the writings of Scripture
