I ask this with trepidation not meaning to cause a ruckus, but as a question that I have sincerely contemplated and found no satisfactory answer for.
What is the basis for the concept of the infallibility of the Bible? It is argued that the Bible says that the Bible is true and tautological complaints aside even that ought not to be possible because the Bible wasn’t created at the time of it’s writing, rather the modern Bible is a canon of texts decided upon by various councils.
Even if you get past the mass of canonizations (there’s at least 20 major ones through the years) there are more basic issues.
My biggest problem has always been that if these people were capable of examining these texts and deciding on their validity, why can’t I? Are they more in touch with the nature of God than I? Does God like them more?
