Is the Doctrine of Inerrancy Defensible? – Michael Horton


For centuries orthodox Christians have taught that the Holy Scriptures are inerrant. Skeptics, on the other hand, claim that this doctrine is meaningless, saying that the doctrine of inerrancy has died the death of a thousand qualifications. How should Christians respond? In this lecture, Dr. Michael Horton explains what inerrancy means and shows how and why it remains a defensible part of our confession.

Christ has redeemed us to be a light that directs others to Him. Fulfilling this call requires us to be able to deal with the most difficult questions asked about the Christian faith. If we are unprepared to face the darkness around us, it will be harder to counter it with the light of God’s Word.

In this series of lectures from Ligonier Ministries’ 2010 National Conference, Alistair Begg, Michael Horton, Steven J. Lawson, John MacArthur, Albert Mohler, Burk Parsons, R.C. Sproul, R.C. Sproul Jr., and Derek Thomas address some of the most difficult questions we face and endeavor to offer biblical answers to assure us and to help us defend the truths of the faith. This conference also features a special mini-conference on Christian communication in a digital social-networking world.
