“The Kingdom/flock of Jesus is governed by the voice of the King, a voice recorded in Holy Scripture and advanced by the Great Commission proclamation of the church. Through the preaching of the Word, the Kingdom colony is being prepared to discern the voice of Christ, as opposed to the words breathed out by the spirit of antichrist (2 Tim 4:3-4). John warns the churches about the false teachers who come in the spirit of antichrist, looking to deceive and lead astray members of the flock (1 John 4:1-6). However, the churches are to trust the voice of the apostles and prophets, whose testimony is true. This is why Paul admonishes Titus to appoint as elders only those men who may be able to stand firm on and teach the truths of the Word of God and will ‘rebuke those who contradict it’ (Titus 1:9). The inerrancy debate, and those that preceded it about the trustworthiness of Scripture, is then not a matter of ‘theology,’ as though what is at stake is a set of propositions we should affirm. At stake is the Word of the King himself, the vehicle through which King Jesus governs his colonies and calls into existence his Kingdom” .
