Is God perfect?
posted by fatbobsmith to Religion & Philosophy (32 answers total)
Most, if not all, major bible-based religions (christianity, judeism, islam) believe that their scriptures are the unerring words of God. That, in some sense, the Quran, Bible and Talmud are 100% perfect and true because they are the words of God, who is infallible.
I'm looking for scriptural references that specifically state that God is infallible. There are plenty stating that he is omniscient or omnipresent. Those don't count. Being all-seeing and all-knowing doesn't prevent one from making mistakes. Ideally, the statement would come from somebody speaking in the name of God, such as a prophet. I don't recall ever reading a passage that specifically states God's infallibility. Does it exist?
