Fundamentalists say the Bible is perfect. The Bible, on the other hand, says only Jesus is perfect. Exaggerating the Bible's perfection is an excuse to steer us away from Jesus.

1. Mark 10:3-5, Matthew 19:8 Jesus questions the infallibility of Moses. Obviously, Jesus did not think every word of the Old Testament was eternally true or infallible.

2. 1 Corinthians 7:12, 25, 2 Corinthians 11:17 Uninspired writings of Paul. It's impossible to say that everything Paul wrote was infallible, when he said so himself that some of what he wrote was not from God.

3. Revelation 19:3, John 1:1, John 1:14 Jesus is the Word of God. In Old Testament time, much emphasis was placed on the writings of the prophets and Moses. But the New Testament is clear that Jesus alone is the true Word of God that existed since creation.

4. 2 Timothy 3:16 All scripture is inspired. Being "inspired" and being "infallible" are two very different things. This verse says that all holy writings (e.g. the Koran) are "profitable", although not all of the Bible (e.g. 2 Timothy 4:13) could be called "scripture".
