Quiz Show (Bible Contradictions)

Your explanation for each and every contradiction here must have better explanatory power than “Well, maybe it just got written down wrong or something.” (Read on…)

Yes. Maybe it got written down wrong. Or copied wrong by some anonymous copyist along the way. Or mistranslated from the original language (Jesus and his followers spoke Aramaic, the New Testament was written in Greek). MAYBE SOMEONE GOT IT WRONG.

What is wrong with any of those as explanations for the bible texts being in the shape they’re in? Maybe it got written down wrong or something. Maybe, just maybe, it got written down wrong. That explains… ummm let me see,…. EVERYTHING, and requires no leaps of logic, no invented narrative glue, no convoluted excuses, no reliance on mysterious inconceivable underhand moves by an invisible deity who deemed it better to have his central, most important message to his favored species become filled with EVEN apparent errors, conflicts, and contradictions.

How NOT to respond to this movie:
a) By assuming that I have not looked into these contradictions with any level of depth and accusing me of not having tried to understand any kind of “deeper meaning”. Wherever possible, I consulted christians’ explanations. I’ve given them a good go. They’re just shit.

b) By saying that these aren’t errors at all, rather, that they are simply copyist’s errors. Uh- derr. A copyist’s error is an error. I don’t care what kind of error it is, just don’t make the claim that the bible is completely free of errors, except for the cases in which there are errors, which are only copyist’s errors only, which aren’t really errors.

c) If you agree with me that English translations of the bible contain errors, but you think that the original Hebrew and Greek manuscripts are pure and therefore true – DON’T tell me this and then go on to criticise me and other skeptics for pointing out that the English translations contain errors!

Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence. That which can be asserted without evidence can be discarded without evidence.

I know, and actually find to have some weight, the New Testament apologists’ conundrum – namely that if all of the gospel accounts really did match exactly, then critics of the bible would instantly accuse the authors of having conspired together. So, if there are inconsistencies it counts against the bible, and if there were no inconsistencies, it would still count against the bible.
Well – tough. The creator of the universe could have done a lot better. The only reasonable conclusion to come to is that the creative force that arranged the constants of the universe, gave birth to galaxy clusters, quantum physics and DNA, invented love, knowledge and truth, and is capable of any miracle he could ever come up with- had fuck all to do with this raggedy old contradictory book of bullshit.

Whenever I make a movie about what the bible says, I’m talking about the actual words that are printed on the pages of the bible. Funny how I always get criticised for doing so, by people who agree that modern translations or English translations are inadequate and erroneous.
________________________________________

I was very selective when deciding whether to include each contradiction in the script. Many that were listed on the lists and websites appeared to me to be either non-contradictory, easily explained, or simply too petty to really count significantly against the claim of biblical inerrancy. I drew heavily on skepticsannotatedbible.com , which actually has links to christian responses to each of the contradictions it lists, where one has been put forward. I read almost all of them and if the explanation sounded like a bunch of bollocks to me, then I dismissed the explanation and included the contradiction in the script. One of the criteria I used to ascertain whether I thought the explanation was good enough, was whether I thought a christian would accept a similar explanation for a contradiction in any other religions holy book, such as the Qaran or Book of Mormon.

For example:
LookingUntoJesus.net has this pathetic explanation for one of the contradictions:

“The text which is called into question is Luke 2:2. If Jesus was born in the days of Herod (who presumably died in 4 BC), then how could Quirinius be governing Syria (who presumably began his reign in 6 AD)?
The trouble is in the English translation of the text, not in the text itself. Keep in mind that the New Testament was written in Greek, not English. Since the translators were not inspired, there is the potential for erroneous translations”. (LookingUntoJesus.net)

接濟貧窮的人(路加福音12:33,14:33,18:22) 或者你可以學習早期的教會 那些教徒賣光他們的所有, 組成一個團體 然後教徒之間互相分享那公有的財產
(使徒行傳2:44-45, 4:34-37) 你們現在對共產主義還有什麼話好說的? 噢, Craig 那是一個無神論者的陰謀, 由奧巴馬和史太林發明 目的是控制我們的國家
目的是控制我們的國家 對了 是時候小休了 回來後Ken要面對我們的單挑 這裡又有一個所謂的矛盾 在聖經裡所謂的矛盾 所謂的矛盾 這是一個傳聞中的矛盾 完全不是一個矛盾 各福音書之間的一致性 所謂「與事實的出入」 沒有矛盾 在聖經裡所謂的矛盾 使那些記載有了歷史上的可信性 好了, 現在是單挑環節了 有八條問題, 你要把他們全部答對 現在是第一條 聖殿的幔子是在耶穌死前還是死後裂開的?
(死後: 馬太福音27:50-51, 嗯, 是 對了

希律的士兵還是彼拉多的士兵? 是, 他們都是 對了

餘生繼續開心地幻想就可以了 噢, 還有, 你本來不配受這獎品的 所以記得要覺得不配 怎麼樣, 這不是我們每人都想要的東西嗎? 再次恭喜Ken 多謝大家收看, 下次再見, 拜拜!

  1. Did King Saul commit suicide himself using a sword, or did he fail to commit suicide using a spear and had to request help from an Amalekite Man?

    Correct. (1 Samuel 31, 2 Samuel 1)

  2. for the record. The Bible is true not because we believe it, the Bible is the truth wether you believe it or not. In other words, it's validation is not dependant upon your belief or disbelief of it, for it to be true

  3. Ok so you can just put verses there and not expect people to read them jeremiah 17:4 this is talking about a specific group of people who he has anger forever toward micah 7:18 he doesnt want to always be angry and he wont always be angry towards all genesis 22:1 in the context it means incite, does works save you no but through faith you need both Genesis 32:30 came in the form of a man genesis 33:11 he took the form a cloudy pillar not his real face exodus24:9 seeing God indirectly jeremiah 7:22 im confused this says neither side 1 john 4:8 again doesnt say eiether side genesis 2:18 this is in the garden of eden the rest is every where outside

  4. #1 Does God's anger last forever?

    Answer: The question is too broad. It does in some cases, but not in others. There is not a Yes or No answer.

    The writer is talking about how God will not stay angry with his chosen people forever in this specific instance. (Micah 7:18)

    God says his anger burns forever specifically for Judah specifically for their idolatry and paganism (Jeremiah 17:4)

    #2 Does God tempt people?

    Answer: No

    No: God does not tempt people (James 1:13)

    God did not tempt Abraham, he tested his faith. I see how they seem very similar but you have to remember context. God was testing Abraham's faith in order to see if he was the right person for Israel to come from him. God asked Abraham to sacrifice his only son with his wife, Sarah, (through which God had promised Abraham countless defendants) in order to see if he was faithful and obedient (also, God stopped him from actually sacrificing his son, he just wanted to see if he would). God didn't tempt Abraham to sacrifice his son, he tested his faith, which is completely different. (Genesis 22:1)

    #3 Does salvation come from works?

    Answer: No

    Galatians 2:16 and Romans 3:28 are both right, in or out of context. People cannot save ourselves, we need Jesus and have to know that we cannot do anything on our own in order to obtain salvation.
    (Galatians 2:16, Romans 3:28)

    Matthew 19:16-22 is the story about when a rich man came to Jesus and specifically asked what good deed must he do to inherit the kingdom of God (aka get to heaven). Jesus questions why he asks the question (implying that the good deed route is not the way to go) and then directly says that you must follow the law if you want to get into heaven based on good deeds. This comes as no surprise because the entirety of the old testiment says that in order to inherit the kingdom of God you must follow the law (which isn't just strictly doing good, it's making sacrifices for sins). Jesus did say that the only way to get into heaven is to follow the law, he just directly answered the question that the man asked in terms of good deeds. Of course, Jesus's crucifixion is the ultimate sacrifice that atones for our sins, meaning that the old law is no longer the way to get into heaven. This was prior to Jesus's death though.
    Luke 10:26-28 is about when a religious leader asks Jesus what must he do to have eternal life (which is basically the same question the rich man asked). Jesus (knowing that the man knew the old testiment well) asked the religious leader what the Law of Moses says. The leader replies that you must love the Lord and love your neighbor, to which Jesus basically says yep, do that. I don't really see how this is contradictory to the other verses. Loving the Lord and your neighbor don't really count as works. It's not something that you can do in order to get into heaven. Jesus isn't saying that you have to do something to earn your way into heaven. It might seem like it because it is a call to action, but there are hundreds of verses that talk about how God provides us with a new and clean heart, so we still can't even brag about loving God, because he's the one who helps us to really love him.
    James 2:24 is definitely the most contradictory at first glance, but context is extremely important. Jacob (aka James {the writer}) talks about how faith without good deeds is pointless. Basically, I can say something but if I never have actions that back it up, what's the point? The verse isn't saying that you can get into heaven by doing good things, that's not what the previous or following verses are discussing. Verse 24 (in context) is saying that you should do good things in order to show that you are saved, not that you need to do good things in order to be saved.
    (Matthew 19:17, Luke 10:26-8, James 2:24)

    #4 Can people see God?

    Answer: His presence/spirit: Yes. His face/essence: No

    When people in the past have seen God, they haven't actually seen him, they've seen his presence/spirit. That's why John 1:18 & 1 Timothy 6:16 say that nobody has ever seen God. They've seen aspects of him. They've seen his spirit. But nobody has ever actually literally looked right at God (except Jesus).
    (Exodus 33:20, John 1:18, 1 Timothy 6:16)

    In Exodus 33:20, God told Moses that he cannot see his face and live, meaning he couldn't actually see him. Also, Moses asked to see God's presence, so of course this is not the same as actually seeing God.
    Genesis 12:7 says that "the Lord appeared to Abraham". This doesn't mean that Abraham specifically saw anything other than God's spirit.
    Exodus 33:11 says that God and Moses talked face to face like friends do. If you read a few more verses you'll see that Moses asks God if he can see his presence (Exodus 33:20). This shows that Moses had not literally seen God's face, because obviously he wouldn't ask to see his face while talking to his face. The face to face thing is just to show how close God and Moses were.
    Exodus 24:11 is very convincing that people can indeed look upon God without being destroyed, but what Moses and the others see is a representation of God, not the actual essence of God. They see an image of God with what seems to be lapis under his feet. Also, this is before Moses asks to see God in Exodus 33, so clearly when Moses asks that later, he has not already seen him.
    (Genesis 32:30, Genesis 12:7, Exodus 33:11, Exodus 24:9-11

    #5 Does God delight in burnt offerings?

    Answer: Yes

    God says that he was not concerned with burnt offerings from his people when they left Egypt, he was concerned with their desire to follow and obey him. This doesn't mean he doesn't delight in burnt offerings, he does. (Jeremiah 7:22)

    The Lord does delight in burnt offerings, as shown in this passage.
    (Exodus 20:24)

    #6 Is God the author of evil?

    Answer: No!

    God is not saying he is the author of evil. He is telling Cyrus that he will destroy his enemies (who are also Israel's enemies, God's chosen people). They are the evil ones, and God is saying that he will bring darkness upon them. He's not saying he is the author of evil, he is destroying evil. (Isaiah 45:7)

    God is love. Don't really see how that is relevant but yea it is true. (1 John 4:8)

    #7 Were humans created before the animals?

    Answer: No

    God created the animals first (Genesis 1:25)

    Genesis 2:18 says nothing about humans or animals being created first. God created Adam and in 2:18 decided he needed a wife so he wouldn't be alone. He clearly meant so he wouldn't be the only human, not the only living thing (Genesis 2:18)

    #8 On the road to Demascus, did Paul's traveling companions hear the voice that spoke to Paul?

    Answer: Yes

    Acts 9:7 says that the people heard a voice (Acts 9:7)

    When retelling the story, Paul says the people heard the voice but didn't understand it. Both of these verses agree that they heard the voice, the later one just adds a detail that they didn't understand it.
    (Acts 22:9)

    #9 Will the Earth last forever?

    Answer: No

    The Earth will essentially be destroyed (2 Peter 3:10)

    The anonymous writer says that the Earth never changes. He/She isn't saying that the earth will never be destroyed. They are saying the Earth never changes in order to make a point that everything done is pointless unless done for God. Context is once again extremely important. This isn't meant literally. (Ecclesiastes 1:4)

    #10 Is Jesus the only man to have ascended into heaven?

    Answer: No

    This is about when Elijah was taken into heaven (2 Kings 2:11)

    This says that no man has ever gone to heaven and returned except Jesus. (John 3:13)

    #11 In old testiment law, were children to be punished for the sins of their fathers?

    Answer: Depends on the sin. Also depends on if it's God or man giving the punishment.

    Children must not be put do death for the sins of their parents (Deuteronomy 24:16)

    Children will be equally responsible if their parents worship false idols. That doesn't mean put to death. (Deuteronomy 5:9)

    #12 Does God tire/rest?

    Answer: He rests but does not tire.

    God never grows weak or weary
    (Isaiah 40:28)

    In Isaiah 1:14, God says he does not like the celebrations that the people have on the sabbath, and that he is burdened with them and cannot stand them.
    In Isaiah 43:24, God says the people have burdened him with their sins by not offering sacrifices for them.
    God does not grow tired. God being burdened with things does not mean he is tired. Burdened can mean a multitude of things, and tiredness can be result of burdens, but it is not always a result.
    (Isaiah 1:14, Isaiah 43:24)

    #13 How many valued men drew the sword for Israel?

    Answer: 800,000 who had experience, 1,100,000 in total

    800,00 in Israel who had fighting experience in the past. This can be inferred by the use of the word "valiant" which has different meanings in Hebrew, implying that they hax experience.
    (2 Samuel 24:9)

    1,100,000 total could fight
    (1 Chronicles 21:5)

  5. The contradictions begin in the first few sentences.
    " And God said, Let there be light: and there was light."
    Three days later, "And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years."
    I hope he was using energy efficient grow lamps til day 4.

  6. A contradiction in a theory/philosophy/story is actually the lack of certain details that are parts of the whole but hide outside the whole. The author has to move around switchimg b/w characters in pursuit of justice for him/herself and still manage to come back to the plot.
    Reverse calculations and amicable reversals of social curses is on the menu.
