For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Did Saul inquire of the Lord?

Here are the two answers which the skeptic believes indicate a Bible contradiction:

When Saul inquired of the Lord, the Lord did not answer him, either by dreams or by Urim or by prophets.” (1 Samuel 28:6)

Saul did not inquire of the Lord.

So Saul died for his trespass which he committed against the Lord, because of the word of the Lord which he did not keep; and also because he asked counsel of a medium, making inquiry of it, 14 and did not inquire of the Lord.
