Are There Contradictions In The Bible?

1 min read 6 views

The answer to the question depends on the type of truth you’re looking for (i.e. metaphysical, historical, linguistic, logical, etc). If, for example, you are asking the question as it relates to historical facts, then the answer is YES. If you are asking the question as it relates to metaphysical truth, then most would answer is NO.

Note: Oftentimes those arguing against the authority of the bible (and then by extension God) will use this question to cast doubt upon the overall veracity of scripture. However, this is non sequitur as the conclusion does not necessarily follow from the premise in it’s expressed form.
