The above image, is why the Afrikaans Missile Engineer showed me. Those lines you see there, show every single contradiction in the Bible, that scholars have found. In other words, in one part of the Bible you can get something that advocates the opposite of what is in another part of the Bible. I will give some examples.
The above image comes from this interactive website where you can study some of the contradictions in the Bible: http://bibviz.com/
To use the above site, just hover your cursor over any line. Then on the top right, you will see the contradiction and where it is listed. If you move your cursor until some of the lines turn white, then you can click on it. Then you will get an entire page with an explanation of the contradictions and the verses where you will find this.
It is therefore quite possible, by reading certain parts of the Bible selectively, to make arguments that are actually opposite. I’ll give some examples of problems found in the Bible.
NOTE: Originally, there were 80 forms of Christianity before the Roman Emperor created a single christianity. Among the early believers in Christianity were the Gnostics. The Gnostics wrote many books. But the Gnostics did NOT believe that the Bible and the stories therein were actually REAL. They saw the Bible as having values, but NOT ACTUALLY REPRESENTING REAL HISTORY. However, other Christians regarded the Bible as ACTUAL HISTORY, and I think they eventually won over.
Here are a few contradictions in the Bible:
The Power of God
“… with God all things are possible.” — Matthew 19:26
“…The LORD was with Judah; and he drave out the inhabitants of the mountain; but could not drive out the inhabitants of the valley, because they had chariots of iron.” — Judges 1:19
Here are a few others:-
“… I have seen God face to face, and my life is preserved.” — Genesis 32:30
“No man hath seen God at any time…”– John 1:18
The Sabbath Day
“Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.” — Exodus 20:8
“One man esteemeth one day above another: another esteemeth every day alike. Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind.” — Romans 14:5
“Cursed be he that lieth with his sister, the daughter of his father, or the daughter of this mother…” — Deuteronomy 27:22
“And if a man shall take his sister, his father’s daughter, or his mother’s daughter…it is a wicked thing….” — Leviticus 20:17
However, when Abraham marries his sister, we see this:-
Genesis 20:11-12 King James Version (KJV):
11 And Abraham said, Because I thought, Surely the fear of God is not in this place; and they will slay me for my wife’s sake.
12 And yet indeed she is my sister; she is the daughter of my father, but not the daughter of my mother; and she became my wife.
“And God said unto Abraham, As for Sara thy wife…I bless her, and give thee a son also of her…” — Genesis 17:15-16
