you know, I thought the whole inerrancy thing was about the accuracy of the bible, not in it's moral message. So things like the flood, the genesis account, and angels would be under the umbrella of inerrancy. Not moral messages, because those don't really effect the accuracy of the bible in terms of history or what existed.

And seeing as how the whole bible has several different moralities (thou shalt not kill; kill your enemy and rape their women), it would be royally stupid to claim inerrancy of moral messages. granted, some will try.

Re: Topic Synopsis
a Biblical truism

Trust in the LORD with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;

this doesn't count as a truism. A truism is something that, by definition, is true. A = A is a truism. The boy is red because he is red is a truism.

I don't see how your quote counts as a truism--how is it so obviously true, self evidently true? I see A + B = ??. Not A = A.

just a tiny nitpick.
