One of the most frequent concerns many have with the Bible is the “perceived” contradictions that lie within its pages. However, when you delve deeper, any and all elements that “seem” to contradict each other all can be explained. In fact, some of these so called contradictions come about because the Bible is not just one book, but 66 different books written over a period of 1,600 years. More of the perceived contradictions are explained in greater detail in this video published by World Video Bible School.
Content Was Written By All Kinds of Different People
Although all scripture is God inspired, it was written by 40 different men over a long span of time as mentioned above. In 2 Peter 1:20, which says “…knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture is of any private interpretation, for prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit,” this is explained. Therefore, it stands to reason that different people would communicate differently, even if they are telling the same story or proving the exact same point. That in and of itself can be the cause of some perceived contradictions.
There Aren’t Really Contradictions
Wait a minute you might ask, isn’t this whole video about proving contradictions to be untrue? What do you mean there are not actually any contradictions? Well, in actuality there are no “proven” contradictions, just “alleged” contradictions. The Bible is likely the most analyzed and dissected book in the history of mankind. Yet, even with the many years of experts attempting to prove contradictions, there has not yet been even one that has been proven to be true.
Watch this video for an in depth look at some perceived or alleged contradictions that have been proven to be false. In each case, there is a logical explanation behind the confusion that can easily be explained. Make no mistake, God’s word is without error, no matter what critics may allege.
