So yeah, another one of these things. This is not going to be a hate thing, this is going to be a simple Questions and Answers. For those of you who are subscribe to a particular faith, or if you just want to see if you can provide an argument for a Bible verse or question.

The following Bible verse's that I'm posting now are from a "Biblical Contradiction," website, but I did actually read most of them; last week I did a somewhat thorough study session of my NKJV (New King James Version) Bible. I had a lot of questions just in the first few books, but these are just some small specifics that I would also like some answers to.

So, the first "Biblical Contradiction," on the list is:

Spoiler: Show

-Exodus 20:13 "Thou shalt not kill.

-Leviticus 24:17 "And he that killeth any man shall surely be put to death."

VS.

Spoiler: Show

- Exodus 32:27 "Thus sayeth the Lord God of Israel, Put every man his sword by his side, . . . and slay every man his brother, . . . companion, . . . neighbor."

-I Samuel 6:19 " . . . and the people lamented because the Lord had smitten many of the people with a great slaughter.

-I Samuel 15:2,3,7,8 "Thus saith the Lord . . . Now go and smite Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and spare them not; but slay both man and woman, infant and suckling, ox and sheep, camel and ass. . . . And Saul smote the Amalekites . . . and utterly destroyed all the people with the edge of the sword."

-Numbers 15:36 "And all the congregation brought him without the camp, and stoned him with stones, and he died; as the Lord commanded Moses."

-Hosea 13:16 "they shall fall by the sword: their infants shall be dashed in pieces, and their women with children shall be ripped up."

If you really want answers, why don't you find a theologist and ask them? Asking a forum, in general, isn't a way to get a great answer on things like this. It'd be like asking what the forum's opinion on a particular interpretation of quantum physics is. Most religious people are not biblical scholars.

Asking them the sort of questions that biblical scholars might be best suited to answering smacks somewhat of an agenda....

A fair point, I'll look for some theological forums and ask some experts. And I'll report my findings.

  1. A list of items of business to be considered and discussed at a meeting.
  2. A list or program of things to be done or problems to be addressed.

Yeah, who ever heard of having one of those? =p

But yes, I guess I do. My agenda is simply finding supposed "errancies" and getting answers to them because I'm curious.

I don't see anything unreasonable in asking the people who use the Bible as a spiritual guide how they personally reconcile apparent contradictions.

Ok, so theology forum did some minor amount of good. Most of the people who answered gave direct, honest answers. A lot of them were things I kind of expected, for instance, "God's law is above man's law; God's understanding is above man's understanding," and etc.

I doubt I'll find many theologists around the world, but it doesn't really matter to be honest. I really want people to give answers to my questions. I mean, if this is the book/law that you base your entire faith/belief in, I want to know how you would defend it.

This is your world-view, after all; the foundation for which you base a lot of your life decisions on.
