Sometimes the terms infallible and inerrant are used interchangeably with respect to Scripture; but, there is a difference in the technical usage of the terms. When scholars use the term “infallible”, they generally mean Scripture is so reliable and trustworthy that no one relying on it will be ever be misled on matters of faith or practice. Infallibility does not technically mean the Bible contains no error of fact. However, when scholars use the term “inerrancy”, they generally mean the Bible contains no error of fact or any contradictory statement.
