Catholic Teaching on the Inerrancy of Scripture – Bruce Sullivan

May 10, 2018 No Comments

In a talk from the 2010 Deep in History Conference, former Church of Christ pastor Bruce Sullivan tackles the question of Biblical inerrancy. Bruce looks at what the Catechism of the Catholic Church and the Second Vatican Council say about the role of Scripture in the life of a believer, and addresses modern doubts as to whether the Bible can be trusted beyond its ability to teach in the areas of faith and morals. For those curious about what the Catholic Church teaches regarding the authority of the Scriptures, this is a highly informative watch!
