The Bible is the inspired word of God. Though I am not as dogmatic about it as some fellow-evangelicals, I do believe that the Bible is in fact inerrant, and that, though a few items require speculation as to how they can reconcile, I think it is easier and wiser to trust that there is just something we are missing than to think the Bible is flawed. I am not disparaging the inerrant word of God in any way.
What I am saying is that it is important to remember that the Bible, though accurate in everything it does say, doesn’t say everything in the world that has ever been said. That may seem rather obvious, but it seems to not always be obvious in theological circles.
