Where did the devils ask not to go

A few weeks ago I refuted one alleged Bible contradiction in a post titled “How many men were possessed with demons at the country of the Gadarenes?”  Here I look at the same story of demoniac at the country of Gardarenes to examine another claim of a Bible contradiction by the skeptic.  The question before us is this: Where did the devils ask not to go?

According to the Skeptic Annotated Bible this is the answer they gave which supposedly indicates a contradiction:

Out of the country

 And He was asking him, “What is your name?” And he *said to Him, “My name is Legion; for we are many.” 10 And he began to implore Him earnestly not to send them out of the country. (Mark 5:9-10)

Into the deep

And Jesus asked him, “What is your name?” And he said, “Legion”; for many demons had entered him. 31 They were imploring Him not to command them to go away into the abyss. (Luke 8:30-31)

(Note: Scriptural quotation comes from the New American Standard Bible.  What is in bold is the emphasis by the skeptic webpage.)

Let’s take a closer look at whether or not there is a contradiction:

One woman sitting in church. The sun shines through the window to the left of the church.

Over at the liberal Huffington Post there’s an article titled “6 Things Christians Should Stop Saying To People Who Doubt” written yesterday by one of their associate editor name Carol Kuruvilla.  I’m struck at how many millennials are in the leadership and staff at Huff Po.  This girl just graduated college in 2011.  There’s nothing in of itself wrong with youth but I think sometimes their immaturity shows itself (note: I’m a Millennial myself).  In this particular piece the author wrote clearly what the intent of her post is:

here are 6 things I wish Christians would stop saying to people who are doubting their faith.

I’m sure some Christians can sometime say the wrong thing to those who doubt.  Some of the things mentioned in the article also made me cringe.  Though I cringe at time for different reasons than the reason the writer presented.  For the Christian the thing that’s most important is being biblical.  So in my post I want to biblically evaluate this Huff Po Religion piece.  I do so because she’s specifically targeting Christians and Christians must be biblical in how they engage with others.

Were the Pharisees baptized by John contradiction

In this post we shall respond to an alleged Bible contradiction.  Were the Pharisees baptized by John?

This is according to the Skeptic Annotated Bible (Note: All Bible quotation is from the New American Standard Bible) with the bold being what their website specifically focused on:

Yes

But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming for baptism, he said to them, “You brood of vipers, who warned you to flee from the wrath to come? Therefore bear fruit in keeping with repentance; and do not suppose that you can say to yourselves, ‘We have Abraham for our father’; for I say to you that from these stones God is able to raise up children to Abraham. 10 The axe is already laid at the root of the trees; therefore every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 11 “As for me, I baptize you with water for repentance, but He who is coming after me is mightier than I, and I am not fit to remove His sandals; He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. (Matthew 3:7-11)

No

When all the people and the tax collectors heard this, they acknowledged God’s justice, having been baptized with the baptism of John. 30 But the Pharisees and the lawyers rejected God’s purpose for themselves, not having been baptized by John. (Luke 7:29-30)

Let’s take a closer look at whether or not there is a contradiction:
