Pax Christi, everybody!
In my admittedly short time on this Earth, I’ve come to understand that The Bible is inerrant regarding things necessary for our salvation, meaning that certain traditions and blown-up facts or some goofs here and there could be found in a truly Holy Book; after all, The Holy Spirit does not override the consciousness of people and meets them where they are. I was convinced that this is one such teaching understood by The Church.
After reading this article from Catholic.com, it might seem as if that isn’t such the case.
Unless I misunderstand the point trying to be made, they seem to imply that The Bible is 100% accurate on all of its details, seemingly refuting the ideas of the prolific theologian and scholar Father Raymond E. Brown with those of the equally commendable Scott Hahn, claiming that the Dei Verbum’s Section 11 says that because everything The Authors wrote in The Bible was overseen and affirmed by The Holy Spirit, that makes The Text wholly without error. This does not sit right with me.
To my fellow Catholics (and anybody else who wants to throw their hat into the ring), does any of this follow, or am I simply fretting about nothing yet again?
