Still Under Attack...

It is nothing new that the doctrine of Scripture is under attack. This has always been the case. It is certainly the case in our day. The reliability of the Bible as God's Word has always been challenged. Even among professing evangelicals the doctrine of the Scripture's inerrancy is actively attacked.

The good folks at Modern Reformation and The White Horse Inn have been doing some outstanding work in recent months on the reliability of Scripture. I encourage you to take time to listen to some of the recent episodes of the White Horse Inn.

I think that to characterize a lot of the recent discussion about scriptural inerrancy as "been there, done that" will, in the long run, be quite a mistake made by evengelicals wishing to promulgate the doctrine. While there certainly are some similarities to previous attempts in the recent (and not so recent) past on this same issue...what are the differences this time? If one says "there are none" I think they do themselves a disservice and it shows that they really don't have a grasp of the culture. History can be repeated...but it is always repeated in a different context which may result in a different outcome than the first or sencond time something comes around. There are many differences (societal, cultural, educational, scientific)now as opposed to when liberal views of scripture began to take hold in the late 18th can begin to see it already in the literature and in the church is not going away.

Well I certainly think that evangelcials ought to respond (as they are doing). However there really is not anything new coming from those who deny that the Bible speaks authoritatively.

There have been some interesting discussions concerning Biologos' campaign against the biblical account of creation Here -

and Here -
