The Importance of Inerrancy

The Importance of Inerrancy-Part 1
By: Dr. John Ankerberg, Dr. John Weldon

Previously we have seen defined inerrancy and seen the evidence for it. Now, we will document why the subject is important and show the weakness of the alternate position. As one scholar notes, “The evidence that those who surrender the doctrine of inerrancy inevitably move away from orthodoxy is indisputable.”

William Culbertson once said that “The root from which all heresy springs is a faulty view of the inspiration and the inerrancy of the Word of God.” Ankerberg and Weldon explain why he is right.

Those who reject the doctrine of inerrancy (that the Bible is without error) believe there are original errors in certain areas the Bible touches outside doctrine and morality, e.g., in science and history. But, is there any way to know whether or not the original autographs were without error? The authors suggest there is.

The authors explain the weakness of the alternate position held by many: limited inerrancy. They say limited inerrancy is simply meaningless, biblically and practically. In fact, no Scripture ever gives us the right to view any Scripture as less than fully inspired and inerrant.

Dr. John Weldon (born February 6, 1948) went to be with the Lord on August 30, 2014 following a long-time battle with cancer. John served for more than 20 years as a researcher for The John Ankerberg Show. During his tenure, he authored or coauthored more than 100 books, including the best-selling Facts On Series of books that has sold more than 2.5 million copies in 16 languages. His final book, published in July 2014 with Harvest House Publishers (coauthored with John Ankerberg), is especially fitting. How to Know You’re Going to Heaven offers a biblical and personal look at the way God has provided salvation through Jesus Christ (Acts 4:12) and the confidence the believer can have of eternity with Him in heaven (1 John 5:13). John’s life and work have touched countless others seeking to grow spiritually and better understand the Bible. His friends describe him as genuine, humble, and passionate to share the hope of eternal life with everyone he met. His work will continue through his many books, his online writings at The John Ankerberg Show website (, as well as through the many people John has personally influenced through his ministry.
