More on inspiration and inerrancy

Hoghead's worthwhile comment: "It is also a matter of speculation as to what saying that all Scripture is inspired by God really means? It does not necessarily have to mean inerrant. Also, it is a matter of speculation as to what texts are being included here under the term "scripture." It is also a matter of speculation how and if God inspired all Scripture. Many laity look at Scripture through the lens provided by the teachings of their church, which they make take to be unquestionable. Many come to Scripture with the notion that Scripture is inerrant firmly drilled into them. Things happened exactly the way the Bible says they happened. There is no doubt about it. Nothing else is to be considered. Sorry, wrong way to go about biblical studies. You should come with an open mind, view Scripture through a healthy skepticism about church tradition. Maybe it is in inerrant, maybe not. Let's see. Many lay assumptions about Scripture have been debunked based on careful literary and historical study, such as the Mosaic authorship of the Pentateuch."

Colter's excellent response: "Good point! It is true that scripture, the writings of preachers, was inspired by the doings of God. But that in no way means scripture is perfect. "The Scriptures always have, and always will, reflect the intellectual, moral, and spiritual status of those who create them."

Frankly, the educated priest class has long known about the imperfection of the scripture but they are moral cowards and feared to disclose such uncomfortable facts to the people."
