Fact: Man fails to grasp spiritual matters and takes things out of context to excuse his sinful nature.

Any Christian who can not see the fulfillment of Bible Prophesies during these days we are living in, hasn't really read a Bible in their lives.

As for the rest, of course they are going to reject God's Command to Repent of their sins and ridicule any suggestion that they do so.

Paul is not a false apostle. He wrote half the NT and was accepted by all early Christians before Rome was even Catholic.

That is your opinion just like I have mine . I do not agree with that . Who do you think Yeshua was alluding to in Revelation ?

I know your deeds, your hard work and your perseverance. I know that you cannot tolerate wicked men, that you have tested those who claim to be apostles but are not, and have found them false. Revelation 2:2

So Paul wasnt a disciple of Jesus? How about the other disciples stories that were conveniently omitted from the final draft.

Re: Bible contradiction proof + Citations
Oh so now people are debating opinions now. That's nice, except that I have those videos with claims and citations that you could check to actually verify who's right and wrong.


Like the claim that all those burned cities were Nephilim, well the problem is that basically yo just proved the CONETS video right. If it makes your religion look good you believed without question, but you needed to invent some reason why the bad stuff was actually not bad. You pick and choose what to subject to interpretation, that doesn't work.

Re: Bible contradiction proof + Citations
People who post alleged Bible contradictions without rebuttal, WANT the alleged contradictions to be true.

The Bible consists of two main sections and those sections are NOT Old Testament and New Testament. The two sections are "the core" and "the controversy".

The core is the main message which I'm sure even pro-active atheists all know.

Everything else is the controversy.

We are saved by the core, we expose our wickedness by ignoring the core and only focusing on the controversy.

Multiple versions is part of the controversy. Alleged contradictions are part of the controversy.

I know how many alleged contradictions there are. Do you? There are approximately 180 - 182! Each one of those alleged contradictions has a controversial surface meaning and a logically acceptable hidden meaning that only a real heart-felt search for the truth will reveal.

On the day of judgement, Go might say: "Well, congratulations, you have become an expert in the surface meanings of my controversy. Now let's get right to it shall we...what did you do with the core?"

Every atheist on the planet knows what I have just posted is true. And they will of course give a controversial and surface rendering of that. Because that's what atheists do for a living...they skim the surface!

And what I said did not contradict itself , why can't it be both ?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 12623026


So the addition of Paul's part by the catholic church makes the bible somewhat incomplete and contradictory but an incomplete/contradictory bible was allowed by god but yet remain a test even though the bible isnt complete? Is that what you are saying? Yet you state that if you take Paul's part out that the bible flows. So where is the test here and who is being contradictory beyond the contradictory level of the bible?

And god allowed this?

So now I have to wonder if all the people down rating this thread are more evidence that a believer only accept things about their beliefs that make them look good and then damn everything that makes them look bad even if both sides of the coin are true. Again, this behavior would be very predictable from the faithful as their belief system is there to give them a sense of self confidence and often little more. So anything that threatens that self confidence must be bad and must be eliminated and treated as the enemy. Although this is in general and exists on a spectrum, as some do indeed try to embody those good qualities as opposed to just talking about them.

There are things that seem to be contradictions, but as a person presses on and studies prayerfully, it comes together.

I know that you don't believe that because you've never done it... as you stated in the original message, (you don't own a bible.)

Perhaps before you make unfounded accusations you would do well to seek and search it out for yourself. It's not just a matter of reading it, it's a heart matter...that's all I will say on that.

Jesus said this:

Re: Bible contradiction proof + Citations
OP nice find.

But......

The one thing people do not look at is that the Bible has Old Testament and New Testament.

The two do contradict.

Then if you step back and take a good look and read what is written as a history book then its WTF???

But to do that you have to set religion aside and read the words.

Why was "Jesus" after "God" kingdom???

Why was Jesus fasting?(that is an obsessive compulsive behavioral pattern).

They nailed Jesus to a cross after his testimony(I bet the entire testimony is not in the book).

Bet he go what he deserved.

And by the way where is "GOD" and who killed him/her.

Oh wait they nailed his the criminal in question to a cross.

Now waiting for rebirth of him/her.

Problem over the years seek of him/her has always been to kill him/her so that the tyrannical government can continue to enslave an control the people.

Game over they win.

Re: Bible contradiction proof + Citations
since i have dealt with suppossed contradictions in the scripture, not one of them changes the message from the beginning, the very beginning, and those citing them don't understand either the original language or are just plain stupid...like the accounts of Paul and the first vision, look it up in the original and no contradiction...

Consider

The first word of scripture in the bible.

Translated In the Beginning / Bet Resh Aleph Shin Yod Tav

Bet the first letter in Hebrew, means a house

Since a house is something you go into, when Bet prefixes a word it means "in"

The first and second letter of Scripture Bet Resh = Son - like as in Bar Mitzah

First three Bet Resh Aleph = Created Formed

In the beginning House Son Created

the last letter of the first three/ aleph and the first letter of the second Shin spells out the word for "Gift

the Yod is a Hand, with a peg - nail

Shin Yod Tav spells out the word Appointed.

First word of Scripture

In the Beginning house Son Created, Gift hand nailed appointed.

this here is also amazing the last letter of first Three is the First letter of the Hebrew alphabet, the last letter of the second is the last letter of the alphabet

The Aleph - Tav

read some josh mcdowell op ;)

read John. the fourth gospel. and read romans. you can read those two books in a weekend, and sneeze through some josh mcdowell apologetics

there are also explanations for apparent contradictions online. carm.org is a great site as is gracethrufaith.com

the authors of the Bible are in harmony I can assure you. figure the Bible was written by jewish people, well read it for yourself it paints them in a VERY bad light ;) why would people write and preserve a book that makes them look horrible?? if it was written by men wouldn't they paint themselves in a better light!?

we are all sinners in need of a savior op. that's what the Bible is about. no one is special God is NOT. a respecter of persons. salvation and eternal life are equally available to all who believe ;)

for God so loved the world He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believes in Him SHALL NOT PERISH but have everlasting life. ;)) Jesus said this!! john 3:16

this is God's promise and He stands by His Word. we can stand on it

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1553081


I've been doing my searching. That's how I've come to the conclusion that there's only a scant few real christians out there who actually practice teh teachings. The rest just want to feel special and they're the problem. And of course it becomes a bigger problem for everyone when there's confusion about what christianity actually is. If the majority of alleged christians are just the douchebags who want to feel special then all of christianity gets viewed that way. So basically what I've been doing is making observations of people to see what they're really like and what they really believe. And so far I've found that only a scant few "christians" actually are real christians. Same goes for other belief systems. This assumes that a real christian or whatever truly wants goodness for all and all that nice stuff.




So far however most of the christian responses to this thread come from christians who are only christians in name only. Its just more observational data for me and that's all.

Matthew 7:13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
Matthew 7:14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1553081


I've been doing my searching. That's how I've come to the conclusion that there's only a scant few real christians out there who actually practice teh teachings. The rest just want to feel special and they're the problem. And of course it becomes a bigger problem for everyone when there's confusion about what christianity actually is. If the majority of alleged christians are just the douchebags who want to feel special then all of christianity gets viewed that way. So basically what I've been doing is making observations of people to see what they're really like and what they really believe. And so far I've found that only a scant few "christians" actually are real christians. Same goes for other belief systems. This assumes that a real christian or whatever truly wants goodness for all and all that nice stuff.




So far however most of the christian responses to this thread come from christians who are only christians in name only. Its just more observational data for me and that's all.

How is one a "false christian"? If someone believes in Christ, and believes they are saved by grace through faith, then their faith is what makes them christian, not the works, or lack thereof.

I'm on my 8th time through the Bible cover to cover and I am 100% convinced it has all the information God wants me to know. and it is inerrant in original autographs -- divinely inspired. the Bible I have right here is exactly what God intended me to have and I do believe it is the Truth -- God's Word.

Well then you're God is an evil God. He commits tons of evil crimes, kills innocent after innocent and orders his followers to commit heinous crimes and there wouldn't even be evil at all if he hadn't created it because he wanted it to exist...and you know all of that, if you've actually read the Bible in it's entirety.

Re: Bible contradiction proof + Citations
since i have dealt with suppossed contradictions in the scripture, not one of them changes the message from the beginning, the very beginning, and those citing them don't understand either the original language or are just plain stupid...like the accounts of Paul and the first vision, look it up in the original and no contradiction...

Consider

The first word of scripture in the bible.

Translated In the Beginning / Bet Resh Aleph Shin Yod Tav

Bet the first letter in Hebrew, means a house

Since a house is something you go into, when Bet prefixes a word it means "in"

The first and second letter of Scripture Bet Resh = Son - like as in Bar Mitzah

First three Bet Resh Aleph = Created Formed

In the beginning House Son Created

the last letter of the first three/ aleph and the first letter of the second Shin spells out the word for "Gift

the Yod is a Hand, with a peg - nail

Shin Yod Tav spells out the word Appointed.

First word of Scripture

In the Beginning house Son Created, Gift hand nailed appointed.

this here is also amazing the last letter of first Three is the First letter of the Hebrew alphabet, the last letter of the second is the last letter of the alphabet

The Aleph - Tav

True True True!!!

Eyes are veiled so that they can not see the truth.

The veil is only taken away in Christ.

2 Corinthians 3:14 But their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which vail is done away in Christ.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1553081


Oh... so you're saying, as many other "christians" claim, that the appearance of Jesus means the Old Testament is not to be followed any longer?

Lets see what good ol' Jebus has to say about the old testament...

“Do not think that I have come to abolish the law or the prophets. I have come not to abolish but to fulfill. Amen, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest part or the smallest part of a letter will pass from the law, until all things have taken place.“ (Matthew 5:17)

“It is easier for Heaven and Earth to pass away than for the smallest part of the letter of the law to become invalid.“ (Luke 16:17)

....seems like you don't get to ignore all the hate and murder and rape in the Old Testament after all. Jesus says so. So get out your machete and start killing non-believers... because remember, God commands it.

See I can get how people would think I'm trying to make religion look bad. The way I see it I could just as easily make science look bad by pulling up examples of dogmatic scientists of which their are many. But that doesn't actually mean science is dogmatic just that those scientists are. I figure its the same with religion. Religion has become synonymous with dogma when technically its only that there's a number of followers of religion who themselves are dogmatic.


Believe it or not I'm just trying t remain neutral on teh subject. I set this up so that it would indeed be controversial so that I could actually observe the true characters of those who respond. Or at least get as close to their true character as possible.

I no longer judge the Bible, I yield and let the Bible judge ME.

the Bible is the story of God reaching out to His fallen creation by coming to earth as a man -- Jesus Christ -- and dying a substitutionary death so we can live forever with Him. Jesus rose from the grave and Belief in His death burial and resurrection as atonement for our sins and payment for eternal life is the greatest story ever told.

as for people's behavior Christianity teaches we are saved by how we BELIEVE not how we BEHAVE. when we are born again by believing in Jesus we receive His Holy Spirit inside us as a guarantee and a down payment -- we enter the POSITION of eternal life not based on our PERFORMANCE -- but via Christ's finished work on the cross

though our sins be as scarlet they are rendered white as snow. this is the hilariously good news of the gospel op!!

there are no and-ya-gottas. we enter the covenant God established when we believe in Jesus. every false religion has other requirements and stipulations and a little research shows no two people are in full agreement on exactly what performances need to be accomplished, or what sins to be avoided etc.

as far as challenging passages go God has an explanation and I believe He will explain everything in my first 5 minutes of forever with Him. He is a just God and every mouth will be stopped. we are without excuse.

and the things of God are foolishness to the unbeliever as they are spiritually discerned. without the Holy Spirit we cannot grasp what God has done, is doing, and what He is going to do. but regardless He is faithful to His Word it will not return to Him void. He has performed it all through history as the Bible shows -- He is performing it, and the prophetic passages will be performed.

there is fremendous joy and peace in finally surrendering to God and taking Him at His Word my friend.
