Challenge: Christians Fight Too Hard for Inerrancy and Inspiration

Here’s a challenge from our comments section:

Christians fight too hard for inerrancy and inspiration. I am willing to suspend judgment on whether or not the Bible is the "Word of God," yet I can still benefit from its teachings where applicable. I can also believe in Christ without buying that the entire Bible is the inspired Word of God. Factually, it is indeed a library of books written by men; whether they were "inspired" by God is a matter entirely up to one's opinion.

I believe Beethoven's music is inspired, but I can't prove it. Nor does that change anything about it.

Does the question of whether or not the Bible is inspired make a difference? Should it be debated? Give us your thoughts in the comments below, then we’ll hear Brett’s response on Thursday.
