23. Explain the inerrancy of the Scriptures

The Scriptures are free from any error and accurately convey the Truth as God intended.

“Since therefore all that the inspired authors or sacred writers affirm should be regarded as affirmed by the Holy Spirit, we must acknowledge that the books of Scripture firmly, faithfully and without error teach that truth with God, for the sake of our salvation, wished to see confided to the Sacred Scriptures.”  (DV 11)

The Scriptures flawlessly tell us who God/Jesus is.  THAT is the purpose of the text (not a science or history text).  Therein is the inerrancy.  This is our interest as theologians.
