The indignation of the moderns reaches white heat when they are asked to receive every word of Scripture as inerrant and authoritative. If Verbal Inspiration means that every word of Scripture must be received as God's word, with unquestioning faith and obedience - and it means just that- they will have none of it. That is their strongest objection to Verbal Inspiration, and they express their abhorrence of it with the frightful word legalistic.
