    Re: Barne's Magnetic DataPlease note this is contrary to early proponents of Inerrancy like BBWarfield who would have put inerrancy lower down the list. There is a vast difference between BBWarfield and modern pop inerrancy which is superficial and only a slogan. I can almost accept BBWarfield but regard pop inerrancy as rubbish and damaging.

         The need for an inerrant Book clearly overrules common sense.


      Don, that analysis is, in my judgment, exactly on target. Commitment to inerrancy is the basis for episodic creationist folk science in its many forms. Biblicism, bordering on bibliolatry, is one of the primary character traits of fundamentalist Christianity.

      Here is an exercise I think many members of this list-serve would find interesting. Go to the web sites of YEC organizations and other citadels of fundamentalist Christianity and locate their "statement of faith." Note how often the statement placed at or near the top of the list is a commitment to the concept of biblical inerrancy, above and before statements about God or Jesus.
