Make No Mistake

Q: Which word means “without error”?

  • a. infallible
  • b. inspired
  • c. inflatable

Have you ever been at a family gathering where your parents, grandparents, aunts, and uncles were telling stories about their past, but no one could agree on the details? Your dad starts telling about the time he borrowed the car to take your mom on their first date. But your grandfather corrects him about what kind of car it was. Then your mother tells your dad they didn’t go to the restaurant he named for their date. It takes quite a while to get the details worked out, and it’s possible not everyone agrees on the story.

The Bible contains many stories, but all of their details agree because God is the author of the Bible. He used around 40 different men to do the actual writing from their own personalities and experiences. But the message is always the same: humans have a problem—sin. God has the answer—salvation. That’s amazing when you consider the Bible was written over a time period of around 1,500 years. And the men who wrote it were from three different continents and had various jobs—shepherd, tax collector, doctor, fisherman, and more.

The Bible doesn’t contain mistakes, because God is the true author of the Bible. Although he used humans to record his words, the message is his.

For You

There may be times when you’re reading the Bible and it doesn’t seem to match up. When that happens, ask a parent or a leader at church to help you find out why. Sometimes we may not understand the Bible, but God’s message is always right.

Answer: a

Although the word infallible isn’t used in the Bible, the Bible tells us that it’s the Word of God and that God never makes mistakes.

All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right.   2 Timothy 3:16
