So God has given both his promise and his oath. These two things are unchangeable because it is impossible for God to lie. Therefore, we who have fled to him for refuge can have great confidence as we hold to the hope that lies before us.
All your words are true;
all your righteous laws are eternal.
God is not man, that he should lie,
or a son of man, that he should change his mind.
Has he said, and will he not do it?
Or has he spoken, and will he not fulfill it?
By no means! Let God be true though every one were a liar, as it is written, “That you may be justified in your words, and prevail when you are judged.”
For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished.
it is easier for heaven and earth to pass away than
for one stroke of a letter
in the law to drop out.
To deny inerrancy,
is to attack the very character of God.
Those who deny inerrancy
soon enter the dangerous terrain of denying all Scriptural authority for both doctrine and practice.
“Every word of God is flawless; he is a shield to those who take refuge in him. Do not add to his words, or he will rebuke you and prove you a liar.”
the words of the Lord
like silver purified in a crucible,
like gold refined
