We will also investigate historic arguments in the Church and how the Church has maintained unity in the face of diverse beliefs in the past. . Each episode we will leave our audience with a tangible takeaway that will enable us to take action towards real, practical Church unity. .

Can we disagree well about Biblical Inerrancy?
Today
Can we disagree well about Biblical Inerrancy?
Pete Enns joins Joshua Noel and TJ (Tiberius Juan) Blackwell to discuss the doctrine of Biblical Inerrancy, the problems Pete has with the doctrine, and whether there is a way for Christians to have unity when we often disagree over this doctrine that is fundamental to so many. Inerrancy is often a doctrine of great significance for more conservative, evangelical churches, but there are many Christians like Pete Enns and our hosts who care deeply about the Bible, but do not agree that the Bible is inerrant..Does Bible ever claim inerrancy? Is biblical inerrancy heresy? What Scripture says about Bible inerrancy? When did biblical inerrancy become a thing? Which Christians don t believe in biblical inerrancy? Is the Bible inerrant or infallible? Where in the Bible does it say every word is true? If the Bible can be wrong, how do we relate to and understand God? Can the Bible be wrong? How do we know the Bible is true?.In this episode, we will:Deconstruct what is meant by Biblical InerrancyExplore the limits of Christian Unity in light of fundamental disagreementsDiscuss the importance and levels of truth in the BibleExplain the kinds of literature and intentions behind the writings of Scripture.Support the show on Captivate or on Patreon, or by purchasing a comfy T-Shirt in our shop!.Join in our conversations on our Discord Server and Facebook group!.Hear all of the AMP Network shows:https://anazao-ministries.captivate.fm.Hear Pete Enn's show, "The Bible for Normal People"https://thebiblefornormalpeople.com/podcast/.Listen to every episode of Systematic Geekology with TJ:https://player.captivate.fm/collection/f4c32709-d8ff-4cef-8dfd-5775275c3c5e.Check out Joshua's other show, "Dummy for Theology":https://player.captivate.fm/episode/1a27a558-5de8-4f4b-bdd0-7f104805a2efMentioned in this episode:Check out the other AMP Network shows!https://anazao-ministries.captivate.fm . https://open.spotify.com/show/725pdvTzkle0fDWK2sdxnD?si=e317918366e04338Easily subscribe to our show wherever you listen!https://the-whole-church-podcast.captivate.fm/listen
