This is a great reason why many people do not believe in God , it is because of what they call bible contradicitons . Does the bible have any contradictions examples ? Let us see if the bible has contradictions or they are just apparent contradictions . We live in a society that judges everything by the outward apparence. God is nothing like apparence ; God is all about knowing things truly and deeply . Many things appear something but the trutu is totally different .
People in the times of Noah had an apparent contradiction . This men was alone saying a flood was coming . The politicians, the scientists , the great men of the day were all saying there will be no flood coming . Plu it never rained on the earth . So this one men saying the end of the world was coming was a contradiction to the majority and apparence. Does the bible have any contradictions examples ? Noah is a good start.
In apparence no flood was coming . In apparence the world was sunny and happy . In apparence no rain ever did fall as a midst came from the ground to water plants. If i was in the times of Noah, and if i jusged by apparence, then i would have said that no flood could come . But apparence is often false and a lie . We need to seek for truth deep enough to find out if it is truth or not . Does the bible have any contradictions examples ? The bible has many apparent contradictions , but the bible never contradicts itself .
The reaosn why God puts apparent contradictions is that all honest people will seek for the truth and not judge what what appears. People who are wise do not judge by what appears. People who lack wisdom and do not care about the truth will judge by what appears, because they do not care to be wrong .
God puts apparent contradictions because truth is so important for God . That it is a test for human beings. Humans think they ar ejudging the bible and God .But the truth is that God is judging us and God is looking each time someone jusges by apparence and comes to a wrong conclusion, they are called a liar . Why ? Because we are all responsible to know what truth is . If we believe a lie we become a liar Why ? Because nobody pushed us to believe a lie . Nobody forces us to believe something . We all have the power to chose .
And when we are too lazy to seek for the truth and judge very fast because of laziness , or because we do not care what truth is we become a liar . Does the bible have any contradictions examples ? Believing a lie because something appreas to be false is still being a liar . As if truth is so important to us , then we will look deeper to find out if something is true or not .
If a car turns on a street and middle of the street the car hits a bicycle and the guy falls to the ground . Let us sty 2 persons are watching the event . One sa the whole thing . But the other one only saw the end of the event when the bicycle hits the car. The second person , because they judge by apparence will say The bicycle is responsible . The first person will say the car hit the bicycle . Because of lack of information, because of judging by what appreas people judge . We are all responsible to judge correctly unless God calls us liars. Does the bible have any contradictions examples ? Only apparent contradictions .
Let us remember the bible says in revelation 21 that al liars will end up in the lake of fire . Let us be very careful how we judge and how much information we have a the thing we judge before passing judgement . Because God is judging us on how we judge things .
PR 14 12 'There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death. ' This is so important because most people that wll end up in hell , will be there because of judging by apparence .
The pharisees saw Jesus. They had the bible, they saw the incredible miracles. But their hearts were so blinded by what appears, by what seems that the truth was secondary for them . They saw the poor Jesus, no house, no money, living in people's homes . They saw the humble clothing ; They sa that he did not belong to the established church of the day . They saw that he was despised by many people . They judged no according to the bible which is filled with prophecies about the coming of Jesus . They judged by what they saw with their eyes . Does the bible have any contradictions examples ?
This is a very good exemple to explain why judging by what appears is so dangerous . A few years later the same pharisees, died, possibly some were crucified in the siege of Titus in Jerusalem . Waht was their fault ? Rejecting truth and judging by apparence. This is what will cause the fall of millions . Let us ask God for wisdom, let us ve very slow to judge , because we are not judging God, he is judging us .
This is a good example that sums them all . I will write articles on more details givine more examples . So that this article is not too long . Here is Solomon chariots. One sverse says 4000 the other verse says 40000 . Is there a contradiction ? No it is only an apparent contradiciton for those who do not have wisdom, for those who judge too fast.
1 KI 4 26 'And Solomon had forty thousand stalls of horses for his chariots, and twelve thousand horsemen. '
2 CH 9 25 'And Solomon had four thousand stalls for horses and chariots, and twelve thousand horsemen; whom he bestowed in the chariot cities, and with the king at Jerusalem. '
One verse says Solomon had 4000 stalls with horses WITH chariots. The other verse says Solomon had 40000 horses without chariots. See my friend, that when we read too fast we come to a wrong conclusion ? Does the bible have any contradictions examples ? There are no contradictions in the bible . It is only a contradiction to those who do not really want to know the truth and read too fast, or are dishonest and do not want to seek for the truth .
Let us remember the bible is inspire dof God . Many things are hard to understand . The meaning of the bible is only given by the Holy Spirit . And if the Holy Spirit refuses to give the meaning , then we will not understand . Does the bible have any contradictions examples ? No
1 CO 2 14 'But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. '
JN 16 13 'Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. ' People who twist the bible do so to their destruction , very dangerous to believe a lie or to not seek deeper to find out the meaning and judge by out own reasoning powers.
2 PE 3 16 'As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction. '
