I have been preparing my next blog post that I am writing for my series on Calvinism. That post is going to be over the subject of sola Scriptura and essentially going to consist of an exposition of 2 Timothy 3:15-16. While reading up so that I could write that post, I had an interesting thought: 'Can anyone but a Calvinist, or at least someone with a high view of the sovereignty of God, truly believe in a fully inspired and inerrant Bible?'
Based on my view of Biblical inspiration, the answer that I had to come to was 'no.' I say that because, first of all, because of my view of Biblical inspiration. I believe that God worked through the human authors, using their own personalities, vocabulary, etc., but overriding their fundamental falleness, so that the final product was without error. As far as I know, within the Protestant Camp, Calvinism is the only system that has such a high view of God's sovereignty that it would allow Him to do such.
Anybody that reads this, what do you think? Am I completely warped in my thinking? Please feel free to comment.
