 James Denison (Texas Pastor) - Review of his Annual Sermon (10/30/00 BGCT), by Bob L. Ross
Pastor Denison is one of the leaders in the BGCT who oppose the inerrancy of Holy Spirit-inspired Scripture, and he was also featured as speaker at the "Texas Baptists Committed" convocation on July 15, 2000.
Denison's message at the TBC meeting was entitled, "How to End the Baptist Battles," and was printed in the "Committedite" newsletter (September 2000) and was carried on the Baptist Standard's website under date of July 24, 2000.
Denison claims there are "eight definitions" and "twelve qualifications" regarding the use of the word "inerrant" in relation to the Scriptures, and he concludes that "inerrancy is a term so variously defined" it "has lost its value as a simple, common test of anything" (ibid, pages 23, 24).
