All Non-Inerrantist Authors
June 26, 2012
These authors were exposed 40 years ago by Dr. Harold Lindsell in Battle for the Bible and Bible in the Balance as NOT holding to inerrancy. Hubbard is responsible for all the material 2nd edition, and he was the one who let Fuller Seminary go from Conservative to liberal, no longer holding to inerrancy.
The book is redactionist--holding to the books being changed by editors over hundreds of years. This goes contrary to God's command to not add to or take from His word. It makes the OT written by the God and man, rather than the Bible's description that it was breathed-out by God Himself and not any invention of man's (2 Tim. 3:16-17, 2 Pet. 1:19-21)
This book plants skepticism and doubts in the readers about the authority of Scripture, which is typical liberalism. It is not truthful, in that it will say it believes in inerrancy in one spot, but does not follow through in other spots. I would protect my flock and keep them from the seeds of agnosticism in this book.
In logic which is a servant of the church, built in to the universe by God, "A cannot equal non-A"--but to liberals, it can. Claiming to hold to inerrancy, they turn right around and say that Moses didn't write Moses, Isaiah that Jesus said wrote Isaiah, didn't write Isaiah, Jonah is fiction even though Jesus referred to it as a fact analogous to His resurrection, Job didn't write Job, on and on.
The book also does not provide the conservative answers to the liberal objections. It gets great reviews because of the sad state of evangelicalism today.
