when i hear put god in a box argument

Last Saturday I wrote a post titled “Does 2 Timothy 4:13 undermine the Doctrine of Inerrancy?” in which I evaluated an argument from an internet discussion that attacked the doctrine of Biblical inerrancy from a professing Christian.  As I stated in that previous post there was a lot of things this individual said that I want to respond to but I don’t have the time to respond to them in full concerning the matter of inerrancy.  Here in this post I want to respond to another argument given by the individual attacking inerrancy which I shall call the “God-in-A-Box-Argument-Against-Biblical-Inerrancy:”

The problem with referring to the Bible as the COMPLETE and inerrant word of God is that we limit the ministry of the Holy Spirit and the gift of prophecy.  By so doing, God has been gagged, and cannot reveal a new word, for fear of false teachers and prophets.  In light of this, I do believe we are in danger of repeating the mistakes of the Pharisees, and will brand as heretics true prophets of God and ministers of His Word.

Elsewhere in this person’s post the individual talk about putting “God in a box.”  How shall we respond to this argument against Biblical Inerrancy?

I enjoyed this graphic novel on Sherlock Holmes, with this being a revision of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s original series.  I wanted to take a break from reading about superheroes but still enjoy graphic novel so this book was definitely welcomed change of pace.  This particular Sherlock Holmes story help explain the mystery of how in Doyle’s famous story, the “Final Problem” and “Empty House” it was possible that the former tells us of Sherlock’s death while in the latter we see Sherlock’s re-appearance.  Basically we discover in this story that an older Watson later confessed to making up both stories and here he gives his account of what truly happened and why he lied earlier in his earlier stories.
