Does The Bible Contradict Itself?

The folks over at Apologetics Press do some great work. Besides providing scientific explanations for the intelligence seen in God's creation, they've also got a section dedicated to dispelling the notion that the Bible, God's Word, contains discrepancies. They explain it best:
Of all the challenges to a Christian’s faith, surely one of the most troubling in this day and age is skepticism's charge that the Bible is filled with various discrepancies and contradictions. If true, such a charge (which is occurring with increasing frequency) certainly would serve to negate the inerrancy and inspiration of God's Word. It is a simple matter for an unbeliever to hurl a barrage of alleged discrepancies and/or contradictions at a believer, but it is not always a simple task for the believer to respond quickly and effectively. This is the case because many of the so-called discrepancies and contradictions cannot be answered adequately via a “quick wave of the hand,” but instead require in-depth, painstaking research in order to craft a reply that can dismantle each one on a case-by-case basis.

Very well said. They go on to talk about these supposed contradictions in depth, on a case-by-case basis. You can find that excellent work at the following link:

Please be forewarned, AP takes on 149 alleged contradictions, and shows how they are no contradiction at all. That will take some time to read through!

Consider supporting this great organization and the wonderful work they are doing for our Lord and Savior!
