    I just sent a couple of vs. yesterday about what it claims to be. II Tim
    3:16 - all is inspired by God. I think the big question is what is
    'scripture' and who says so. Why don't we accept the Apocrypha or The Gospel
    of Thomas? I'm not asking for a history lesson - I've heard that. I'm asking
    about what those 'experts' used to decide and how valid it was.

    Is there anywhere in the Bible where it claims it's own inerrancy? I know,
    example, that RC Pope has declared himself to be infallible wrt matters of
    and morals. But, I have never heard of any clear cut claim of inerrancy
    specifically made in the Bible. All that seems to be based upon inference

    In any consistent theory, there must exist true but not provable statements. (Godel's Theorem)
