For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Should we believe everything?

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

Yes

bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.” (1 Corinthians 13:7)

No

The naive believes everything, But the sensible man considers his steps.” (Proverbs 14:15)

When he speaks graciously, do not believe him, For there are seven abominations in his heart.” (Proverbs 26:25)

But examine everything carefully; hold fast to that which is good.” (1 Thessalonians 5:21)

Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.” (1 John 4:1)

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Bible Contradiction: From what were the animals created?

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

From the waters.

Then God said, “Let the waters teem with swarms of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth in the open expanse of the heavens.  God created the great sea monsters and every living creature that moves, with which the waters swarmed after their kind, and every winged bird after its kind; and God saw that it was good.” (Genesis 1:20-21)

From the ground

Out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field and every bird of the sky, and brought them to the man to see what he would call them; and whatever the man called a living creature, that was its name.” (Genesis 2:19)

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Who drove the Anakim from Hebron?

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

Joshua

Then Joshua came at that time and cut off the Anakim from the hill country, from Hebron, from Debir, from Anab and from all the hill country of Judah and from all the hill country of Israel. Joshua utterly destroyed them with their cities.” (Joshua 11:21)

Caleb

Now he gave to Caleb the son of Jephunneh a portion among the sons of Judah, according to the command of the Lord to Joshua, namely, Kiriath-arba, Arba being the father of Anak (that is, Hebron). 14 Caleb drove out from there the three sons of Anak: Sheshai and Ahiman and Talmai, the children of Anak.” (Joshua 15:13-14)

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

Jim Warner Wallace.  Cold-Case Christianity for Kids.  Colorado Springs, CO: David C. Cook, October 1st 2016. 127 pp.

4 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

This is an apologetics’ book geared towards kids.  The publisher labeled the book as Juvenile Nonfiction.  Technically it’s actually a book that lets the readers enter a fictional story of being a cadet in a “Cadet Academy” analogous to the Police Explore program (where kids have the opportunity to understand how the police work) but with a twist: the detective teaching the class also present reasons why Christianity is a faith that is true.  The author is Jim Warner Wallace who in real life has worked for decades as a police officer and cold-case detective.  As a detective he became a Christian when he started to look into Christianity.  With his background he applied his detective skills in evaluating and later defending the Christian worldview.  There’s definitely a lot of good illustrations, examples and analogy that detective Wallace draws upon to make his point throughout the book.  I read this aloud to my daughters and they enjoyed this book more than I expected (my oldest is eight and youngest is four).
