As of last week we have refuted fifty alleged Bible contradictions.  Lord willing I would be writing more of these kinds of posts.  Eventually when I have more written I’m going to have to get them organized under a Scriptural Index to make them more accessible.  Below are simply the listings of what I have done thus far:

Judges 19 is a strange passage.  Yet it is in God’s Word.  So there’s a purpose God has for instructing us with it.  I’m convinced that the strange passages in Scriptures are passages that is worth our time studying more deeply to figure out what’s going on; and often when one dig more deeply there are gold in the passage.  I think of the example of Genesis 22 where Abraham was going to sacrifice his son Issac which you can check out a sermon here that puts in context of redemptive history and leave you worshipping God.

Similarly Judges 19 in its context teaches us some important truths about the darkness of man’s depravity.

A brother in my church shared me this wonderful message titled “You Didn’t Hear This One In Sunday School – The Levite & His Concubine.”  The preacher did a good job explaining the text.  Check out this sermon from Youtube:

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Did Jesus go to heaven after he died but before his ascension?

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

Yes, Jesus went to heaven on the day of his death.

“And he was saying, “Jesus, remember me when You come in Your kingdom!” 43 And He said to him, “Truly I say to you, today you shall be with Me in Paradise.”” (Luke 23:42-43)

No, Jesus remained on earth after his death until his ascension.

“Jesus *said to her, “Stop clinging to Me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father; but go to My brethren and say to them, ‘I ascend to My Father and your Father, and My God and your God.’”” (John 20:17)

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

For today’s post will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Will the Messiah be a descendant of David?

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

Yes

“When your days are complete and you lie down with your fathers, I will raise up your descendant after you, who will come forth from you, and I will establish his kingdom. 13 He shall build a house for My name, and I will establish the throne of his kingdom forever.” ( 2 Samuel 7:12-13)

No

“And Jesus began to say, as He taught in the temple, “How is it that the scribes say that the Christ is the son of David? 36 David himself said in the Holy Spirit, ‘The Lord said to my Lord, “Sit at My right hand, Until I put Your enemies beneath Your feet.”’ 37 David himself calls Him ‘Lord’; so in what sense is He his son?” And the large crowd enjoyed listening to Him.” (Mark 12:35-37)

I just saw Huffington Post had a recent piece written on their front page for their religion column titled “Former Mayor Of Hell Rewrites Bible To Make It Really, Really Gay (NSFW).”  It has the above picture as its main picture to get people to click on it from the religion column.

Basically the article was about a guy making a mockery of the Bible.  You know it is bad when it has to be labeled NSFW which means it is not safe for work.  It’s essentially giving blasphemy against the Bible a platform on a national leftist website and the feel of the article is it was written and shared to make readers laugh.  For a website that talks a lot about fake news, one wonders if this piece that is more fitting for the Onion gets front and center stage as a news coverage where a Youtube comedian is quoted from his childish tweets all to get readers to laugh while the Huff Post writer drops his own lines alluding to the Bible.

I just wonder if Huff Po religion does the same thing with the Quran or with Islam in general like how they post things on the Bible and Christianity…or if there’s a double standard with the editors’ decision of what they select.  Not that I’m encouraging people to desecrate the Quran but I wonder would the Leftists over at Huff Post put similar pieces in content, tone and attention with the Quran?

Haven’t done one of these posts answering Bible contradictions in a while.  If you are interested in our other posts dealing with Bible contradictions see our Collection of Posts Responding to Bible Contradictions.

For today’s post will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: What is God’s name?

Here are the four answers which the skeptic believes shows a Bible contradiction:

Jehovah

“God spoke further to Moses and said to him, “I am the Lord; 3 and I appeared to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, as [a]God Almighty, but by My name, Lord, I did not make Myself known to them.’” (Exodus 6:2-3)

Jealous

“for you shall not worship any other god, for the Lord, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God—” (Exodus 34:14)

Jah

“To shoot [a]from concealment at the blameless; Suddenly they shoot at him, and do not fear.” (Psalm 64:4)

I am

God said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM”; and He said, “Thus you shall say to the sons of Israel, I AM has sent me to you.’” (Exodus 3:14)

Sometimes people make an assertion that there’s a Bible contradiction from the Book of Proverbs but they assert their claims without considering the literary form of proverbial sayings.  When one consider the nature of proverbs as “slice of reality” rather than an absolute statement to be applied in every instance I think we see there’s not a Bible contradiction.

Consider the following example from common English proverbs that people wouldn’t say are contradictory but each applies in different instances:
