Inspired… and Preserved ???
Most of us agree that all of Scripture is given by inspiration … in the original manuscripts.
But do we have God’s inspired Word without any error today?
Many today laugh at this silly notion. In fact if you take a trip to the average Christian bookstore you will not find a single book authored by anyone that believes that we possess God’s infallible Word today. But if we don’t have God’s Word, what do we have? A book that merely contains God’s Word?

Common sense dictates that if God allowed copyist errors and other corruptions into the manuscripts over the centuries, then inspiration becomes irrelevant.

Here is another, though rather lengthy, article on the relationship between inspiration and preservation: Can Verbal Plenary Inspiration Do Without Verbal Plenary Preservation?
