One of the greatest attacks today both inside and outside the church is the truthfulness of Scripture. There has been an increasing question placed upon its inerrancy. â€œThe inerrancy of Scripture means that scripture in its original manuscripts does not affirm anything that is contrary to factâ€ (Grudem, Systematic Theology 90). This ties in with our AGC doctrinal statement regarding the inspiration and authority of Scripture which says, â€œWe believe the Holy Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, as originally given by God are divinely inspired, without error, entirely trustworthy, and constitute the only supreme authority in all matters of faith, teaching and behaviour.â€ (AGC, Articles of Faith and Doctrine 1) In a world today that leans heavily on relativism, the doctrine of the inerrancy of Scripture is becoming more and more questioned.
