This is a terrible misunderstanding of Protestant faith and even worse un-Christian behavior.
Anyways, inerrancy does not extend into what you believe it to be… there are many factual accounts written into the Bible that are symbolic in one form or another, or contextual, or a plethora of other things. Many of the works written in the Bible one must take into account the cultural linguistic behaviors of the author. For instance if an American says “wow there are 144,000 people in time square” – it means roughly 144,000 people are in Time Square – however, if an America states, “wow, there are like a billion people in time square” – it means, “there sure are a lot of people in Time Square”
In some cultures saying 144,000 was kind of like saying, ‘wow there are a billion.’ Also if a person comes back from a party and states, “man, everyone was at the party” he means, “man, all the people that I am friends with and then some were at the party – well Henry wasn’t but most everyone else.” This doesn’t mean that he is lying – it is just the verbiage that American’s tend to use.
So although things in the Bible are based on factual events and are told in truth the cultural verbiage of the writers need to be considered.
If we took everything literally in the Bible we would all have to be 6 day creationists and believe that Jesus had blood brothers and sisters.
I don’t know who Charles Stanley is, apparently he speaks for all of Protestantism by your logic – but I disagree with the statement as you present it… I would like a link or something so I could research it further.
I mean honestly, what if they did say it as you mean it – so what, what if a Catholic Priest in Arkansas stated that Catholics have to hit themselves in the face with a hammer during mass – would that make it true or would that discredit the Roman Catholic faith?
I could just as easily say about your post, “Is this what Catholic’s concern themselves with during Holy Week?”
Of course I know that many fine Catholic’s thoughts are elsewhere during these wondrous hours.
