John Frame. The Doctrine of the Word of God.  Phillipsburg, NJ: Presbyterian and Reformed Publishing, November 1st 2010. 684 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Westminster | Amazon

This is the final volume in John Frame’s “A Theology of Lordship” series.  I recommend all four volumes.  In this volume theologian John Frame focus on a theology of the Bible. Readers who are familiar with his other works would appreciate the same rigor and clarity in the way Frame argues that is both sound and creative.  Frame is truly one of the most sophisticated and philosophical defender of the classical Protestant Conservative view of the Bible.

We have in the past posted on our blog Michael Kruger Faith to Life Lecture on the Self-Authenticating Scripture and his Four Lectures on the Canon by Michael J. Kruger (Free MP3s!).  Dr. Kruger is a Seminary president, New Testament Scholar, Presuppositional apologists and author who has made his contribution towards the work of the Lord in more ways than one.  Here’s a short video on “What It Means That the Bible Is Self-Authenticating:”

lie or truth

This is my sixth posts in a series responding to some arguments against inerrancy presented by a certain blogger.  Today we shall look at the following paragraph:

I believe that the doctrine of inerrancy was conveniently brought in by the Church to protect the Bible as a consecrated canon of scripture, with the authority to teach and convict.  With this, the false doctrine of “papal infallibility” was also established.  However, the assertion of inerrancy is a lie on both counts, considered to be the lesser of two evils; the other being chaos!  Now, what started as a lie is now a deeply entrenched doctrine that every professing Christian is compelled to accept as true or be branded as a heretic!  But how can we claim to have the truth in Jesus, when we are forcing many to believe a lie?!  It shows a lack of faith in God’s ability to protect His Church and reveal His Word to true believers.

Here is my response:

error

This is actually my fifth posts in my series responding to some arguments against inerrancy.  I was mistaken last week to say that I only had two posts.  Today’s objection we shall look at is as follows:

However, no where is it written, in any verse of any chapter of any book of either Hebrew or Christian Bible that ‘scripture’ equals ‘infallible’ or ‘inerrant’!  What it does say is that God’s words are flawless (Psa 12:6), His Law is perfect (Psa 19:7), that His word will not return to Him void (Isa 55:11), that His words will all be fulfilled (Matt 5:18) and that all scripture is profitable for teaching (2 Tim 3:16).  However, it should be crystal clear that not every word written in the scriptures (whether Jewish or Christian) were the very words of God, so they do not all have the same claim to flawlessness.

Here’s my response:

silly objection to inerrancy

Last month I wrote two posts in which I evaluated some arguments that a woman presented for the rejection of Inerrancy.  My first post was titled “Does 2 Timothy 4:13 undermine the Doctrine of Inerrancy?” followed by a second that was titled “.”  Today’s post I want to look at another criticism offered against inerrancy:

 I believe the teaching of Biblical inerrancy has hurt more than it has helped the Christian faith.  I think it could be responsible for the stunted growth among Christians, who do not develop their relationship with God through the Holy Spirit.

Here’s my response:

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?

Michael Kruger

Michael Kruger has given a lecture at Clearwater Christian College on February 13th, 2015 on the Self-Authenticating Scripture.  This is an important lecture.  I appreciate his nuance and distinction between Self-Authentication versus Self-Attestation of Scripture.  Self-Authentication is not just merely self-attestation which refers to what Scripture has to say about itself although it does not conflict with it.  Self-Authentication refers to the quality, attribute and character of Scripture that bear out it’s own Divine Origin.  It is synonymous with “self-evidencing.”

Watch it:

Hope you learn from it!
