Recent analysis has shown that the vast majority of “conservative” evangelical scholars claim to hold to inerrancy, but in the opinion of one of them, if they were held to the standard of the Chicago Statement on Biblical Inerrancy, perhaps 95% of them would fall short.
Understanding these issues and the facts that support the inerrancy of the Scripture are crucial for any Christian. How one understands the extent of the authority and veracity of the text impacts everything from interpretation to application.
At the 2017 Chafer Theological Seminary Pastors’ Conference (March 13–15, 2017) our two keynote speakers each had four-part series that addressed these issues.
Hear the discussions on these issues from our keynote speakers Dr. F. David Farnell, who addressed “Critical Issues in Inerrancy,” and Dr. H. Wayne House who enlightened us on “Problems and Challenges on Interpretation”.
Other speakers and topics included:
Bennett Greenspan: “Are Modern Jews Descended from the Biblical Israelites?”
Mark Musser: “Theological Romanticism, Higher Criticism & Post-Modern Fascism: A German Odyssey”
David Roseland: “Scottish Common Sense Philosophy and Inerrancy”
Andy Woods: “Apocalyptic Genre and Inerrancy”.
One session featured a report and update on Chafer Seminary.
