“The church has historically confessed that Scripture is the Word of God. It is God speaking to us. There are also human authors of Scripture, and the content of Scripture reflects their personalities, styles, and experiences. But the humanity of Scripture does not mean that Scripture has less authority than, say, the divine voice at Mount Sinai. The authority of Scripture is nothing less than the authority of God himself… ‘Inerrant’ simply means ‘without error,’ or ‘true’ in the sense that we normally speak of true sentences, true doctrines, true accounts, true principles. Were God to speak to us in person, ‘directly,’ none of us would dare to charge him with error. Errors arise from ignorance or deceit; and our God is neither ignorant, nor is he a deceiver. Similarly, we dare not charge his written Word with error.” (John Frame)
