Inspiration and Inerrancy - Acts 7, Summary of Acts. Acts 6:11-7:60. April 10, 2012.
Passages in Stephen’s message are sometimes used by unbelievers as evidence of the Bible being full of contradictions. Inspiration and inerrancy of scripture is the cornerstone of belief in the Christian faith. Christians believe that the Bible is “God-breathed,” that the Holy Spirit supernaturally directed human writers in order that they “exhale” His Word exactly as God intended. This applies only to the original manuscripts. We no longer have these original documents, but Pastor Dean demonstrates how the discovery of what we do have can be discerned, compared and validated so that what might appear on the surface to be a discrepancy may be fit consistently with the inerrancy of the text without compromising the integrity of God's Word.
