Likely the latter.

The real problem
The real problem is the relatively modern idea that the Bible is one book, one story. It's not, and was never meant to be seen as one book or one story. Most of the so called contradictions are simply due to thinking that what is in one Book of the Bible should correspond to what is in any other Book. People even refer to the "Books of the Bible" but somehow fail to make the connection that "Yup, they are separate books by separate authors who each had their own story to tell; and many of the books are really two or more different stories by different authors with often contradicting theologies that have just been smushed together."

Re: The real problem
But that is a "whatever" type question.

What possible difference could it make?

thewordofgod describes a worthless god
thewordofgod writes:

You people argue whether or not the Bible has any contradictions without knowing who the true God is. Only God can interpret the scriptures because he knows where all the lies were added by the Jews and Romans. He's the only one who understands the symbolic meanings that he had written by his prophets and saints. For a sinner to argue something he has to lie about in order to be right is not done with the truth. It's done by the sinful flesh that deceives their thoughts.

It is totally irrelevant who the real God is to say whether or not there are any contradictions in the Bible.

If only God understands "the symbolic meanings that he had written by his prophets and saints" then it was both a pointless effort and a useless tome.

The scriptures were only meant for God, not religious people who don't even know who God is.

Now that is really dumb. If the scriptures were only meant for god then they are pretty worthless and the god not very bright.

I would say that you're not very bright for saying such stupid things. God is in total control of everything according to his plans, which can never fail. If you think you can do better, then tell me.

We are. In fact many people are telling you. We understand that what we write is meant for others to read and so try to write in ways that others can understand. We try to make sure others can understand us unlike the god you are marketing.

That's not how God communicates. He uses his saints to speak the truth and no sinner can understand the truth. That's why sinners aren't authorized to interpret the scriptures and teach them to others. All they do is lie to each other. The truth is meant for his chosen ones to hear and that's all. Once he makes his chosen ones a sinless saint, then he can use their body to speak through. It's always God who speaks through his saints but sinners don't believe it's him using my body.

I'm sorry but that god is just stupid. What value is the "TRUTH™" if sinners can't understand it?

Your arrogance and self serving answers are why God has to destroy you and everyone else. Why would he trust the truth with people like you?

My arrogance?

My self serving answers?

I'm not the one making silly claims.

Do you have any idea just how evil the goddlet you market is?

You're new here so I'll try to help you.

This thread is in one of the Science based sub forums, one devoted to examining the Accuracy and Inerrancy of The Bible.

In the science area you are expected to support your position with evidence and reason.

It's certainly possible that you can provide some support for your position but to do so, you really need to move beyond just word salad and at least provoide some form of reasoned argument.

Keep trying, if nothing else it's possible that you might learn how to post something that might lead someone to reconsider their beliefs.
