      I realize that, it's a teaching of uber-Calvinists. It's found nowhere else. But this thread is not about this new Calvinist invention; if you want to discuss that, here is a thread: http://christianityhaven.com/showthr...e-of-Calvinism

      No...it not Uber Calvinist. OSAS is a claim from semi-pelagian Christians such as yourself. Secondly, the term uber-Calvinist is something you have coined in an attempt to support your uber-denominationalism over Christian faith. You cannot think outside the narrow box of your Lutheran concordia.
      Here's a word of advice: Let God's word direct your understanding rather than your denomination.

      It should be noted that one of the biggest attempts to undermine the inerrancy of scripture took place at Luther Seminary in St Paul when they commissioned the Jesus Seminar in the early 1990s.
      Lutherans...always seeking to deny the deity of Christ and the authenticity of scripture... /s

      Huh? Archaeologists currently tell us that OT history isn't very accurate until the time of the Kings. There are debates even about the kings, though I tend to accept the overall picture starting about with Judges.

      In the NT, while there may be issues of detail, the picture of Jesus we get seems pretty good.

      The business about letters is about accuracy in copying. But it only applies after Jesus' time. There's a fair amount of uncertainty of the text dating from early times. I'd say the NT in general has fewer issues with the text, though to be honest, the uncertainties of text in both OT and NT are small enough that it doesn't affect the message.

      There are two major models of inspiration. One is that the text itself is inspired. The other is that the events described come from God, but that Scripture is a witness written by humans describing their experiences with God. In that case it's not the text itself that is inspired but the things it talks about.

      The evidence from science, archaeology, and even from the text itself (e.g. the fact that there are distinct different viewpoints shown by different authors) all point to the second model of inspiration.
