Meaning of INFALLIBLE in English


When applied to a sacred text like the Bible, infallible means that the text is fully trustworthy. i.e. it does not deceive the reader into falsehood. There are problems with this concept , because even within the conservative wing of Christianity, Bible experts reach many different conclusions about divorce , hell , the millennium , t he Book of Revelation , and creation/evolution , etc. Since theologians' beliefs are mutually exclusive, most must be wrong. Since they were all derived from the Bible, the concept of biblical infallibility is suspect.
