Contemporary evangelicalism has been faced with a critical dilemma, a progressive shift away from the orthodox perspective of the universal inerrancy of Scripture. Presently, limited inerrantists have proposed that Scripture’s veracity is restricted to matters of revelation, rather than comprehensively truthful. The tentative solution for this research is that the Bible’s internal witness affirms the concept of universal inerrancy.
In this study, the Bible will function as its own witness to universal inerrancy, through systematic, exegetical evaluation. The research will address, via meticulous exegesis, three prominent scriptural references – 2 Timothy 3:16 (Inspiration), Psalm 119:160 (Characterization), and John 17:17 (Attestation). In addition, these passages will be correlated into the inerrancy argument. To conclude, the consequences of abandoning universal inerrancy are discussed through three essential Christian realms – doctrinal convictions, personal Bible study, and relational motivations. These propositions form a cohesive contention concerning the universal inerrancy of Scripture.
