What is the idea that the Bible is “inerrant,” that it is without error of any kind, is not a central Christian affirmation? What if it’s actually bad theology, contradicting other core commitments that orthodox Christians hold? What if inerrancy turns the Bible into a tool for high-control American Christianity, detracting from what Christians actually say is the cornerstone of their faith? In this episode, Dan looks at an “immanent critique” of the doctrine of inerrancy, showing why it’s a bad doctrine from within the theological framework of the very Christians who affirm it.
