      101 Biblical Contradictions / Contradikshunz


      0 Not allowed! Not allowed!

      The Bible, said to be the holiest book ever written, also "passes" as the alleged “word of God”. We at DGT feel it is important to attempt to prove the continuous tampering of this book by passages that seem to contradict one another, thereby leading to the assumption that a book such as this continues to be degraded by the pen stroke of man (YT) makin' it not as holy as it may seem – for if it was, it would never go through the contininuous re-editionz this text has already undergone – not counting the infinite number it will continue to experience.

      If I can show you over 100 contradictionz in the Bible what would you think then? What would that do to your religious foundation? If you dare, read on. Many thingz which we may have taken for granted as being true – without question – may not be necessarily so.

      The Bible has been considered the most reliable source that exists regarding the concept of this man-made version of "God". After reading these contradikshunz, if you are an independent thinker, your thoughts may change...

      If someone were to give testimony in a court of law and s/he were found to give 101 contradictory statements under oath, the testimony of that person would be rejected (it wouldn't take 101 contradikshunz, by the tyme they told their 2nd lie they'd be thrown out!). So Y can't we use the same standard when judging the reliability of the statements of The Bible?

      As you read each contradikshun, keep in mind to use your mind and not be guided by emotionz alone. We all have brain power and it's about tyme we use it.

Then comes the following feat: (a) Moses and Aaron converted all the available water into blood (Exodus 7:20-21). (b) The magicians did the same (Exodus 7:22). This is impossible, since there would have been no water left to convert into blood.

      Contradikshun #94 Who killed Goliath? (a) David (1 Samuel 17:23, 50). (b) Elhanan (2 Samuel 21:19). Contradiction #95 Who killed Saul? (a) "Saul took his own sword and fell upon it... Thus Saul died... (1 Samuel 31:4-6). (b) An Amalekite slew him (2 Samuel 1:1-16).

      Contradikshun #96 Does every man sin? (a) Yes. "There is no man who does not sin" (1 Kings 8:46; see also 2 Chronicles 6:36; Proverbs 20:9; Ecclesiastes 7:20; and 1 John 1:8-10). (b) No. True Christians cannot possibly sin, because they are the children of God. Every one who believes that Jesus is the Christ is a child of God ... (1 John 5:1). "We should be called children of God; and so we are" (1 John 3:1). "He who loves is born of God" (1 John 4:7). "No one born of God commits sin; for God's nature abides in him, and he cannot sin because he is born of God" (1 John 3:9). But, then again, Yes! "If we say we have no sin we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us" (1 John 1:8).

      Contradikshun #97 Who will bear whose burden? (a) "Bear one another's burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ" (Galatians 6:2). (b) "Each man will have to bear his own load" (Galatians 6:5).

      Contradikshun #98 How many disciples did Jesus appear to after his resurrection? (a) Twelve (1 Corinthians 15:5). (b) Eleven (Matthew 27:3-5 and Acts 1:9-26, see also Matthew 28:16; Mark 16:14 footnote; Luke 24:9; Luke 24:33).

      Contradikshun #99 Where was Jesus three days after his baptism? (a) After his baptism, "the spirit immediately drove him out into the wilderness. And he was in the wilderness forty days..." (Mark 1:12-13). (b) Next day after the baptism, Jesus selected two disciples. Second day: Jesus went to Galilee - two more disciples. Third day: Jesus was at a wedding feast in Cana in Galilee (see John 1:35; 1:43; 2:1-11).

      Contradikshun #100 Was baby Jesus's life threatened in Jerusalem? (a) Yes, so Joseph fled with him to Egypt and stayed there until Herod died (Matthew 2:13 - 23). (b) No. The family fled nowhere. They calmly presented the child at the Jerusalem temple according to the Jewish customs and returned to Galilee (Luke 2:21-40).

      Contradikshun #101 When Jesus walked on water how did the disciples respond? (a) They worshiped him, saying, "Truly you are the Son of God" (Matthew 14:33). (b) "They were utterly astounded, for they did not understand about the loaves, but their hearts were hardened" (Mark 6:51-52).

      Blessings of Peace and Serenity,

      There's actually a website on the net which is a rebuttal to those contradictions. Yet the rebuttal as far as I'm concerned misses the mark of convincement.

      Greetings again Akyeame Kwame,


      I have to say what a Blacknificent post. I remeber when I was a bit younger and attended church I used to present some contradictions to the pastor and deacons of the church. They hated me for it because the say whatever you read in the bible is true but I used to say if the bible contradicts itself then which story is true? They never liked me at all in bible study. But I have to say I think I will check some of these out. I just have to say that you have opened my eyes even more and I have to thank you again...
      Peace to my African family.....

In addition there have been unscrupulous men who have purposely altered it in sections, removed sections and added what was never meant to be there. Yes it is true that the contents have been defaced every which way. But the same can be said of other holy books such as the Quaran.

      Yet men still cling to it, attempt to adhere to it's teachings and in times past would even die to protect it. The reason being that understanding and faith in spirituality come from the divine. And despite man's intention to quash the divine, it still continues to break through the muck and mire like a permanent seed planted in the earth.

      There is no worldly explanation for this, nor can there be any, because what is Godly cannot be grasped by what is earthly. Only the soul's spirit in man can understand the final premise of these words. And if men were able to explain it to other men, then the original tablets of stone would have been sufficient to bring all men into understanding. But it wasn't and so the Son/Sun/Light of God itself is sent to permeate our beings in order for us to know without a doubt what is the meaning.

      If your heart cannot open itself to embrace truth, truth cannot enter. So it goes on that "if a person believes then there is no explanation necessary and if he doesn't, then there is no explanation possible".

      I have always wondered why people such as yourself will take so much time and energy to try and prove the Bible's infallibility instead of just turning your back and walking away like you would do so many other of the bzillions of scripts in the world that you disbelieve. I can only come up with that you know somewhere deep within you that it is viable but you have barred your own heart so tight that the spirit eludes you. Therefore you rally support for yourself so you will not be alone in your assertions, and to appear to others to be a clever man. Hotep.

      Why?

      Why use vessels that CAN'T respond to you directly?
      Why use vessels that has been totally taken out of context?
      Why use these tools of religion that has put so many people through many life times of oppression?
      Why use the same tools, that THEY used to control vast amounts of people world wide, to uphold our communities and then complain that WE don't, wont, and can't get our people to the glory we once had.

      Tools of mass con-F-U-son, mass pollution, mass entr-u-son, whose the fool sun?

      WE got issues even if it aint you



      PEACE

      greetings

      this thread is taking me back to a conversation me and my girlfriend had like 15 years ago with a bunch of people on the 3-way. (boy do I feel old LOL) :smile: my friend didn't believe in god at the time and she was reading the bible as if it was just any other book and was questioning a lot of inconsistencies or contradictions to our friends who had ties to the church/bible.

      The one I remember clearly is her saying something about the bird that had the branch in it's mouth that Noah saw and that shouldn't have been possible

      peace

      Its been a couple years since this post; I too didn't touch a bible; my mama 'n nem didn't bug me like dat. I giv thanks.

      U kno how it goes, said one of our respected ancestors: religion is the hardest barrier (btween us) to penetrate. And one can never argue one out of their faith. There're folk who strive in proving their bible's correctness.
