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:

Saul inquired of the Lord.

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. Therefore He killed him and turned the kingdom to David the son of Jesse.” (1 Chronicles 10:13-14)

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: Should we follow our own hearts?

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

We should follow our heart and eyes.

Rejoice, young man, during your childhood, and let your heart be pleasant during the days of young manhood. And follow the impulses of your heart and the desires of your eyes. Yet know that God will bring you to judgment for all these things.” (Ecclesiastes 11:9)

We should not follow our heart and eyes.

It shall be a tassel for you to look at and remember all the commandments of the Lord, so as to do them and not follow after your own heart and your own eyes, after which you played the harlot,” (Numbers 15:39)

He who trusts in his own heart is a fool, But he who walks wisely will be delivered.” (Proverbs 28:26)
