Biggest Contradictions in the Bible. I know there are so many to narrow the biggest down to one.
Moses went up to Mount Sinai to get Ten Commandments. One of the commandments is Thou shalt not . When Moses came down from Mt. Sinai he was so mad with the people that he ordered 3000 killed. Odd he did this after receiving the commandments one of which was not to kill
Tsk. It was acceptable to kill people who blasphemed. I have read where some translators say the correct translation is "do not murder," and that puts a different spin on the issue.
One of the biggest contradictions that I see are the two versions of creation in Genesis. The order of creation if life is different and in the first, male and female are created at the same time.
The biggest contradiction in the Bible is the concept of God, a being that is all-powerful and can instantly have anything he/she desires, yet wants things that don't happen and asks for things that aren't done. If you are all-powerful, there can be no concept of "wants."
It tickled me when I read about king Nebuchadnezzar seeing the handwriting on the wall.
Daniel 5:6 - Then the king's countenance was changed, and his thoughts troubled him, so that the joints of his loins were loosed, and his knees smote one against another
Not really a contradiction.
All four Gospels contradict each other.
Mark seems to have the most human Jesus up to John which has Jesus as the boss on the cross.
There are many including,
" Thou shalt not make graven images," ooops the Catholics in particular have screwed up on that quite badly,
"Thou shalt keep the Sabbath Holy unto Me," Chrustians still have NOT figured out which actual DAY is the Sabbath,
" Thou shalt NOT have other Gods before Me," With Chrustians Sky Daddy suddenly gets relegated into the lower league and Jeebus Chrust jumps to the top League plus brings a whole heap of others up there with him,
"Thou shalt NOT covet thy neighbours wife/chattels, etc, etc," it seems even the pious Catholic Priests, etc, etc, have screwed quite regularly on that one,
" Honour thy Father and thy Mother," then Jeebus Chrust comes along and tells everyone that " He has come to set Father against Son, Mother against Daughter, etc, etc," a case of Divine mis-communication if ever there was one imo,
The list IS almost endless, so I'll stop here rather than cause others to read more of what they already know, etc.
See that has some bending room. To kill vs. to murder, with a certain frame of mind, one could call the killings just as they were done for breaking the not worshiping other gods/graven images/etc. commandment. Not that I agree, but that would be a logical explanation. I find the 2 different stories of creation to be a bigger contradiction. They can't agree from the first story, so WTF?
