Chicago Statement on Biblical Inerrancy 3

What do Christians mean when they say the Bible is inerrant? The Chicago Statement on Biblical Inerrancy tells us what leading inerrantist mean by inerrancy. I’ll be posting a section of this statement each week until I’ve posted the whole thing. You can read previously posted sections of this statement in by clicking here.

After the preface and a short statement, the Chicago Statement continues with a section called Articles of Affirmation and Denial.

Article I.

We affirm that the Holy Scriptures are to be received as the authoritative Word of God.

We deny that the Scriptures receive their authority from the Church, tradition, or any other human source.


Round the Sphere Again

The all Canadian edition.

Bet You Can’t
Name all the Canadian provinces and territories in under 2 minutes. Okay, there are only 13 total, so you might be able to name them, but the bigger question is, “Can you spell them?” How did you do?

Show and Tell
Violet spent one day last week celebrating on the streets of Vancouver and she has stories and photos. “All in all,” she writes, “it was a beautiful day….”

Fewer Peeps Than California
That hat tip for this video goes to Tim Challies. In it Tom Brokaw explains Canada to Americans. Life where I live, says he, is only for the hardy. (Did you know that one of the airports that allowed American jets to land on 9-11 is just a few blocks from my house?)

If you pause 2:00 minutes in, you’ll find the perfect cheat sheet for the Canadian provinces and territories quiz above. But you wouldn’t need  to use it, would you?


Sunday's Hymn

Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus

O soul, are you weary and troubled?
No light in the darkness you see?
There’s a light for a look at the Savior,
And life more abundant and free!


Turn your eyes upon Jesus,
Look full in His wonderful face,
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim,
In the light of His glory and grace.

Through death into life everlasting
He passed, and we follow Him there;
Over us sin no more hath dominion—
For more than conquerors we are!

His Word shall not fail you—He promised;
Believe Him, and all will be well:
Then go to a world that is dying,
His perfect salvation to tell!

—Helen Lemmel
