Lewis Sperry Chafer on the Inerrancy of Scripture

The Sunday feature of the Worldly Saints blog is all about quotes. No commentary from me, no reflection, etc. Just a provocative or informative quote from a saint in church history.

Chafer“The Bible claims for itself that on the original parchments every sentence, word, line, mark, point, pen stroke, jot, or tittle was placed there in complete agreement with the divine purpose and will. Thus the omnipotent and omniscient God caused the message to be formed as the precise reproduction of His Word. The original text was not only divine as to its origin, but was infinitely perfect as to its form. It is both necessary and reasonable that God’s book – the book of which He is the Author and which brings the revelation and discipline of heaven down to earth – shall, in its original form, be inerrant in all its parts.”

Lewis Sperry Chafer, Systematic Theology, Volume 1
