If your heart is hardened the message is not clear when your heart is not hardened the message is clear.

I will say this

When you combine all three books will you get a clear picture. “Well when you are told my god is different than your god”. How can you have a talk about Jesus if you’re not open minded that others believe in Jesus.

I was told there is only one god witch is true.

Read in the morning is better then a short prayer for spiritual gratification, the message is made clear and pray at night. It in all books.

I thought Matthew 7:1

I don’t look at the contradictions there called parables plus Jesus was anointed Christ and was given the Holly spirit.

He was given the gospel of peace and the book of law.

Jesus said don’t kill and love thy neighbor.

Didn’t he say go in to a closet or room by your self because pray is better one on one.

He said let the law take care of it.

The parable of Jacob and isaac when Isaac was thrown down the well and said the wolf devoured Issac took a bloody shirt. The blood was not his.


Never read it so no clue haha, should have an option of never read the bible


Just a few to start with taken from: []

GE 1:3-5 On the first day, God created light, then separated light and darkness.
GE 1:14-19 The sun (which separates night and day) wasn't created until the fourth day.

GE 1:11-12, 26-27 Trees were created before man was created.
GE 2:4-9 Man was created before trees were created.

GE 1:20-21, 26-27 Birds were created before man was created.
GE 2:7, 19 Man was created before birds were created.

GE 1:24-27 Animals were created before man was created.
GE 2:7, 19 Man was created before animals were created.

GE 1:26 Man is to have dominion over fish, birds, cattle, and all wild animals, yet--
GE 2:15-17 It is wrong to be able to tell good from evil, right from wrong.

GE 1:26-27 Man and woman were created at the same time.
GE 2:7, 21-22 Man was created first, woman sometime later.

GE 1:28 God encourages reproduction.
LE 12:1-8 God requires purification rites following childbirth which, in effect, makes childbirth a sin. (Note: The period for purification following the birth of a daughter is twice that for a son.)

They are good ones! I have a bunch for the New Testament but not so many for the Torah. Thanks.
Have you ever wondered why there are so many contradicitons?

@Watchtower Stories are told to teach a lesson. We have everyday sayings that are contradictory which we don't cross-reference like "I am proud to be an American" and "Pride goes before the fall". Because the scriptures were considered the word of god the contradictions were left. When studied in the bible they are viewed separately and only used to teach the lesson that refers to it.

@Pand0ro I'm sure that is the case in some instances, you can certainly say that it is a Hebrew custom to use eisegesis to make a philosphical point but most 'Contradctions' are an inevitable result of the fact that the Tanakh and the New Testament together form an anthology of vastly different documents and books that were written by vastly different men for vastly different reasons over the space of a thousand years. The problem only really arises when you divorce the texts from their culture, language and time. It is somewhat interlectually lazy to assume that the Bible was dictated by God to the Jews for the benifit of Christians. It is actually far more interesting than that!

@Watchtower I did not imply that god dictated the scriptures. The people who compiled them into the bible did. Humans feel safest when they can be certain of their view of existence whether it really is certain or not. All religions (and politics) offer a world where adherents believe everything is known and can be accounted for. It is the terrible mess made when our survival instincts get processed through our human ability to abstract and imagine.
