Depends on what you mean by inerrancy. What you're saying is that if someone doesn't understand math, 2+2 no longer equals 4.

The Bible can be inerrant without a particular person recognizing it.


Particular person, sure...but 5 year olds get 2+2=4, as do teachers.

And there you have the rub, you can't get different denominations to agree on what the bible says. Look at this board. No one agrees on what the thing says. Close, similar, but not the same. We all see 2+2=4 the same. That's an absolute.
