bible_contradiction_resolved_is_it_ok_to_covet

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Is it OK to covet?

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

Yes, some things you should covet.

Like prophecy.

Therefore, my brothers and sisters, earnestly desire to prophesy, and do not forbid speaking in tongues.” ( 1 Corinthians 14:39)

And the best gifts. (Especially on Christmas morning.)

But earnestly desire the greater gifts. And yet, I am going to show you a far better way.” (1 Corinthians 12:31)

Don’t covet.

Don’t covet anything.

What shall we say then? Is the Law sin? Far from it! On the contrary, I would not have come to know sin except through the Law; for I would not have known about coveting if the Law had not said, “You shall not covet.”” ( Romans 7:7)

For this, “You shall not commit adultery, You shall not murder, You shall not steal, You shall not covet,” and if there is any other commandment, it is summed up in this saying, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”” ( Romans 13:9)

But sexual immorality or any impurity or greed must not even be mentioned among you, as is proper among saints;” (Ephesians 5:3)

Therefore, treat the parts of your earthly body as dead to sexual immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and greed, which amounts to idolatry.” (Colossians 3:5)

At least not these things: your neighbor’s house, field, wife, slave, concubine, ox, ass, or anything else that belongs to your neighbor.

You shall not covet your neighbor’s house; you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, or his male slave, or his female slave, or his ox, or his donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor.”” (Exodus 20:17)

You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, nor desire your neighbor’s house, his field, his male slave or his female slave, his ox, his donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor.’” (Deuteronomy 5:21)

On the first day of the first month.

Now it came about in the six hundred and first year, in the first month, on the first of the month, that the water was dried up from the earth. Then Noah removed the covering of the ark, and looked, and behold, the surface of the ground had dried up.” ( Genesis 8:13)

On the 27th day of the second month.
