Topic:

God’s Word is truth. What does this mean for missions? Discussing inerrancy and its importance for evangelism, especially global evangelism, Ligon Duncan and Albert Mohler lead this breakout session. Mohler gives a succinct definition for biblical inerrancy — he defines it by saying, “the Bible in whole and in all of its parts is the word of God written.” Or as B.B. Warfield puts it, “inerrancy simply comes down to the formula when the Bible speaks, God speaks.” That the Bible is completely true and completely trustworthy is something Christians should rejoice in, and we should strive that the world might rejoice in it too.
