I Did Not Argue His Point.

I did not argue his point.

I just indicated that he can not meet his own requirement which was....

“The burden of proof is on those making the assertion of accuracy."

He made and assertion “ words are never inerrant” and proved no proof.

He failed his own test.

I was therefore able to dismiss his argument on a technicality.


But if you wish to discuss the possibility of inerrant words.

The parables of Jesus are inerrant.
Some of the parables are interpreted for us.
Notice that there is only one interpretation given and not several.
That is because Jesus has defined the intended meaning of the words.

After all they are his parables.
That gives Him the right to define the meaning of the words.
If we disagree as to the intended meaning of the words we will only prove that one or both of us are wrong.

It would be interesting to see what would happen if someone went to meet their Maker (God) and tried to explain to Him that He had no right to assign specific meanings to the words He used.

This principal leads to an interesting mathematical perspective which God and God alone has.

God has no need for the mathematical laws of probability because He is 100% sure of the correct answer and therefore a probable answer is useless.

What do you think ?

PS I hope this post is back up to the standards you seem to expect from me.
