I noticed in the recent "CF Struggle" thread, the topic of the Bible being/not being inerrant came up. In my somewhat dated dictionary, the definition of inerrant is "Free from Error"

That seems to be an easily understandable definition, although as much as the word "interpretation" is used on this board, maybe not :)


Anyway, I have three straightforward questions for anyone here who believes the Bible is not the inerrant word of God. Hopefully I'll get some straightforward responses:

1. If you believe the Bible is not free from error, please tell me specifically one or two places where the Bible is in error.

2. If you believe that Book X, Chapter Y and verse Z is in error - then on what basis do you believe any other verse is without error?

3. Is there any area of the Bible you think is in error where the error is not in your favor? Clarification - every time I have ever read or heard someone say they don't think the Bible is inerrant, the person had a vested interest in the Bible being in error in that area.
