Are there contradictions in the bible?
in Religion

I believe that there are many contradictions in the bible. Here are just a few examples

800,000 men were fighting in Israel: 2 Samuel 24:9
1,100,000 men were fighting in Israel: 1 Chronicles 21:5

454 Children of Adin: Ezra 2:15
655 Children of Adin: Nehemiah 7:20

Ahaziah was 22: 2 Kings 8:26
Ahaziah was 42: 2 Chronicles 22:2

Jacob was Joseph's Father: Matthew 1:16
Heli was Joseph's Father: Luke 3:23

David Captured 700 Horsemen: 2 Samuel 8:4
David Captured 7,000 Horsemen: 1 Chronicles 18:4

    Whether they are small or not, they're still contradictions.

  • SilverishGoldNova, can we debate the matter one-on-one? I can answer these wild claims. Let me know what you think. Shalom.
  • All of these are small contradictions, not affecting the main message.

    So what.

    If there a contradictions, no matter how small or big, they're still contradictions, and when Christians claim the bible is god word and has no contradictions , but when stuff like this:

    Then that means the Bible is
    A. Not prefect
    B. Unlikely to be God's word, because who makes so many contradictions without proofreading to fix it?

    Humanity itself is full of  contradictions isn't it? 

    Which is maybe worse, a book with some contradictions in it?

    Or some of humanity being self contradictory?

    None of those are contradictions. You're just a poor thinker and ignorant of the bible.

    But here is one for you.

    American history books have contradictions. Here is one example.

    America has 42 States. - American History, Swinborn, 1867

    America has 50 States - American History, Bartells, 1949

    Tadaaa!!

    You can't be serious...

    Please... Tell me this is a joke...

    Tadaaa!!

    The bible is suppose to be Gods word, yet he/she seems to not even keep track of what they write.

    Not such an all mighty being after all

    @Zombieguy1987 who was this post directed to? Talking about: "seems to not even keep track of what they write." !?

    >Not such an all mighty being after all 

    As usual, you missed the point. And continue to pretend a contradiction exists simply because you've said one does.

    Not a single contradiction has been posted in this thread.

    If two history books have America having 42 states and 50 states, how is that a contradiction? Only stupid people think that way.

    The bible is a history book covering more than 6,000 years of human history. Things change. Number of horses, ages, names of towns and cities.

    But for the ignorant atheist, America could only have had 50 states, anything else is a contradiction. Ahaziah remained 22 years old and did not change. Nothing but poor thinking and anti-theist bias.

    Or they play on words as if words cannot have more than one meaning. So to such morons, the word "righteous" for example, can have only one meaning. So a common trait of language, that the same words can be used in different ways with different meaning, becomes a "contradiction" to such people.

    What these dweebs do, is post so many "contradictions", trying to overwhelm theists with a wall of text.

    Let's take them one at a time. Pick any one of your so called contradictions, and I will show you (and the board) your ignorance.

    Browsing an atheist website cannot substitute for an actual education.
