John MacArthur: Why Preachers Must Believe in the Inerrancy of Scripture

Why is a strong conviction on the inerrancy of God’s word so important for preachers? John MacArthur answers this question by saying you can’t be an effective preacher if you “equivocate on the authority of Scripture.”

“I can’t edit God. I can’t decide what I should preach and what I shouldn’t preach.”

After being a preacher for over 50 years, MacArthur is convinced now more than ever that the Bible can be trusted. “It validates itself no matter how deeply you scrutinize it,” MacArthur says.
