Being an inerrantist does not disqualify you from being a scholar. It just
makes you into a very confused scholar who has to do a lot of complicated
juggling of arguments not to sound very unconvincing indeed. It seems to
me that inerrancy and the juggling of breakable objects are not the most
essential things to worry about in order to be faithful both to Jesus and
to the accurate translation of Greek

I get the impression, from a number of posts on this list (and other
lists as well) that being an inerrantist is being unscholarly - it's as
though the attitude is well, "you're an inerrantist - that speaks for
itself - you can't be a thinking scholar and an inerrantist". In other
words "only a complete moron would be an inerrantist."

Is this what people think - That's the impression I get anyway.

Of course, there have been and still are many brilliant inerrantist
