In terms of absolute truths, there is no wiggle room about 2+2=4. And unlike logical collections of work which can be broken down into logical (math) equations and shown to be consistent throughout, the bible can't.

And when I pick a pretty easy one, just like Lawrence did with giving away everything, suddenly 2+2=7. Ergo, no inerrancy. For me. Still.


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.
