Infallible Nature of the Bible

Updated on November 11, 2014

Why infallible?

Is the Bible the word of God?

This is never questioned among Christians. But is it really? Right, say, it's the word of God.

But what do you really think it means?

If you ask any Christian who is knowledgeable enough, you will hear them saying that it is inspiration by God that graced the Bible.

But I sometimes wonder if that is necesary. Why do we have to think everything about God is right and infallable?

All perfections and righteousness about God seem unquesitonable when it comes to God; unless the person called God is perfect, all knowing and always right, how can he be God at all?


Something earthly and heavenly

I kind of give credit to old Christians, because they didn't try to make a legend saying that the Bible was made of heavenly gold with God's fingerprints thereon.

They weren't like Joseph Smith with golden tablets of God dropped from heaven.

Christians don't deny that the word of God was written by men after all. No matter how divine it seems, they are all written by men.

So Christianity's major credit will be they stand on their feet on earth, rather than surreal fantasy. Right. But there is a catch when you are honest in real life.

A life lesson #1: if you have to cheat, do it perfectly or don't do it at all.

But if some human flesh and brain got into the writing, then how in the world did it turn into something not human after all?

If they are all written by some men, what could possibly make the human products divine? Well, that's a bit tricky, isn't it?

Let us not bother too much about nuts and bolts. If Christ has a task to prove himself in between God and man, Christians have some work to reconcile its earthly shell and divine ingredient.

Many arguments on divine sources of the Bible are out there.

One of proofs presented is, however, an embarrassing one. I hope people never use that for a proof that the Bible is divinely originated.

They say, the Bible itself testifies it's inspired by God. This is ridiculous, to be honest. We are trying to find some objective proof, not self-claimed one.

In all fairness and honesty, that can't be a proof; rather it reflects on the typical audacity of Christianity, I'd say.

The primary purpose of infallibility in the word of God is, I think, absolute authority. But absolute authority is one thing, but the motive to seek such an authority seems quite dubious.

You may want to ask why Christianity needs such an authority in tangible form. Why do they claim something tangible such as the Bible while they insist to serve invisible God, even condemning various forms of idol worship .


To shut God off?

The real problem comes when people use that absolute authority to serve their own self-interest.

Especially, when they say God speaks only through the Bible.

In all appearances what they want is God they can control, God who shuts up for them to speak, God who is limited to a written form.

That helps them control people who submit to their authority. I kind of sense this is the real purpose of infallible God and the Bible.

And self-evident proof such as self-authority in the Bible is a blatant abuse. So this is my first apology, if you consider me a Christian, to non-Christians.

Yes, that's a shameless self-serving defense. You may wonder why Christians insist on the infallible nature of the Bible. Why indeed?

What if the Bible is not as infallible as it appears? Why does it matter anyway?

Say, that's plausible but there is a serious problem in divine nature we play on. This goes same to many other elements of Christianity, such as virgin birth, Christ's being perfect, Christ's being half man and half God, or Trinity and so on.

If you look at them, one thing is common: all of them walk on the water of implausibility. Then another bullshit comes along: everything is possible with God. This statement forecloses all arguments.

Then why ever do we start off with logics and arguments at all?

Why do you think Christians insist on the infallable word of God?
