Bible Contradictions?

#1  Postby DLH » May 11, 2015 6:13 am

There is always the claim of the skeptic that the Bible is full of contradictions in the Bible. I challenge anyone here to present 1 contradiction at a time for each participant, giving me time to address your first before posting the next, since I may have others post at the same time.

Let's see if I can convince you by reasoning with the scriptures.

Ooh! I wonder which way this thread will go? Just plain ignoring the contradictions presented or the Argumentum Ad Emperors New Clothes AKA 'You don't understand the Bible' route? Place your bets! :popcorn:

How did Judas die, and what did he do with the money? Did he -

And he [Judas] cast down the pieces of silver in the temple, and departed, and went and hanged himself. Matthew 27:5


-or-

Now this man [Judas] purchased a field with the reward of iniquity; and falling headlong, he burst asunder in the midst, and all his bowels gushed out. Acts 1:18

How's about the two, contradicting versions of genesis:

Wrong Bible. You're referring to the Manual of Style from the Department of Tautology Department.

You cannot use logic to demonstrate Biblical contradictions for it
is a tool of Satan. Anyone who does go looking for them is letting
themselves work through him instead as they have rejected Jesus

I quite agree, surr. The best way to demonstrate the contradictions in the Bible is to attempt to live according to its precepts, and to be absolutely, perfectly, internally consistent about it. However, you should inform no one else about the details, and just let everyone observe how you get on.

Jesus H Christ. Contradictions in the babble! Where can one begin? The whole thing is a contradiction right from the start. There's two creation tales for a start! :what:

There two creation accounts are not contradictory, they are simply in two distinctly different orders. The first is chronological and the second is topical. The chronological one is, of course, in the correct order but the second one is given in order of the significance of man's perspective. They were created in the garden so then the garden is introduced; Adam was to name the animals so then the animals are introduced, etc. If some one gives a chronological account of their going to the store to buy bread it isn't a contradiction to give another account of the event having them getting bread at the store. They are only two different orders of the same account.
