The Foundational Implications of Biblical Inerrancy

Differing views of Scripture are a prime source of division in those nations historically following a Christian perspective. These nations would include Europe, the Americas, and former colonial outposts around the world. Nations with a European heritage were founded by people who believed, overwhelmingly, the Bible to be the word of God and, therefore, true and authoritative in all of its teachings.

Applying Scriptural authority to produce conformity is the normal way followed by those with confidence in the Bible. C. S. Lewis noted:

If I have read the New Testament aright, it leaves no room for ‘creativeness’ even in a modified or metaphorical sense. Our whole destiny seems to lie in the opposite direction, in being as little as possible ourselves, in acquiring a fragrance that is not our own but borrowed, in becoming clean mirrors filled with the image of a face that is not ours.

Thomas B. Warren's Basic Argument for the Inspiration of the Bible

It has long been a three-fold abiding passion of mine: (1) to develop the basic argument which would prove without doubt that the Bible is the inspired, infallible, and authoritative word of God, (2) to help younger men to see this truth, and (3) to encourage them to communicate this truth to others by means of oral speech, journal articles, tracts, and books. I am convinced that I did develop the basic argument for such proof.

Responses to Evolution

Even evolutionists admit that no one has ever directly (immediately) observed the evolution of any human being from some lower (non- human) form of life. Such an admission involves the further admission that in order for the theory to be scientifically believable someone had (1) to both gather and to interpret the evidence and (2) to formulate a theory that man actually evolved from some lower (non-human) form of life. The same composite of facts is available to anyone who wishes to study the question. But the composite of facts does not constitute the whole story. There is also the very important matter of how to handle—how to interpret—these facts. Just a little later I shall have more to say about this very important point...

A Review of the Gilmore- Rosenberg Debate

Rosenberg makes clear that the God that he has in mind is the traditional God of theism—omnipotent (all-powerful), omniscient (all-knowing), omnipresent (all-present), and benevolent (all- loving). It is this traditional view of God, the Judeo-Christian concept of God, that he claims is inconsistent with the existence of suffering. Rosenberg says that suffering is unpleasant and nobody wants it; he then gives examples of suffering, such as the Holocaust, starving children, natural disasters, and other terrible diseases. Not only do humans suffer, but there is great animal suffering as well—Rosenberg references examples from the size of mass extinction events down to the stepping on a dog’s tail. The core of Rosenberg’s argument is essentially the classical argument from evil.
