Inerrancy of Scripture & Clarity of Scripture



Inerrancy can not be found in the Bible today. If anyone says one specific topic in the Bible is inerrant, then the whole Bible has to be inerrant. If one part of God's word doesn't speak truth, then we, Christians, are serving a false God. A lying God. Which we all know that can't be so. So, the Bible is full of truth.

Clarity:


"Deu 6:6 And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart.
Deu 6:7 You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. "

We need to be teaching our children God's word. God's word should be on the tip of our tongues and in all our conversations.



"Psa 19:7 the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple;"

God's word is understandable. Many have claimed that only theologians can fully understand God's word. All christians should disagree. The Bible is very clear and every part of it should be, and is, very understandable.

Even unbelievers will find it clear if they are truly seeking out salvation; if they are not, God's word will be like a cloud.

"The clarity of Scripture means that the Bible is written in such a way that its teachings are able to be understood by all who will read it seeking God's help and being willing to follow it."-Wayne Grudem

After Grudem's quote, he himself even has said that we should realize that even godly men will mis-understand scripture.

Just one small quibble here.

You say, "The Bible is very clear and every part of it should be, and is, very understandable."

~ It should be noted not every part of the Bible is as clear as other parts. Some parts of Scripture speak more clearly on an issue than others. In view of this we need to remember to always interpret the more clear in light of the less clear. Or to put it another way; the difficult passages in light of the more easy ones.
