Inerrancy is the doctrine that the bible is fully truthful in all of its teachings. Theologians have argued over the levels to which the bible is inerrant. If the bible is not inerrant, then our knowledge of God may be inaccurate and unreliable. Inerrancy is a corollary to the full inspiration of the bible. While detailed scientific descriptions or mathematically exact statements are not possible, inerrancy means that the bible, when judged by the usage of its time, teaches the truth without any affirmation of error.
