Biblical inerrancy can and should be defined as:
“Scripture in the original manuscripts does not affirm anything that is contrary to fact”.
Many Christian pastors and leaders want their congregants to believe that they affirm everything affirmed in scripture. Nevertheless, many popular and well-known pastors and leaders in the church or Jesus Christ, say they do not believe the Bible teaches a six day creation for the heavens and the earth. Here are some examples: R. C. Sproul, John Piper, D. A. Carson, Michael Horton, and Timothy Keller. These men are bright and articulate and biblically literate. They also claim to believe in biblical inerrancy. Since these pastors and leaders are well-known and their views are widely published, I will leave it to the reader to decide for themselves if the above named men really believe what the Bible teaches about how long it took God to create the heavens and earth.
