Why is the idea of Bible inerrancy so important?

Put it another way: what if the Bible had errors in it? The readers of the Bible would then have to use their own judgment about what to believe and how to act.

But that is what they do already, isn't it? And different people come to different conclusions about what to believe and how to act.

So to quote a famous philosopher, don't worry, be happy!

In my view, deciding how to live one's life isn't really "that simple". It requires learning and thinking conscientiously. "Inerrancy" (again, this is just my view), leads one down the proverbial primrose path, causing one to ignore that need for reasoning.

At it worst, we find that good people usually do good things, while bad people can do bad things, but to persuade good people to do bad things requires that lack of reason, whether from religion or some totalitarian ideology.
