    Default The Errors in the Bible Bother Me.

    I just deleted everything I wrote. I decided I didn't want to be a mild version of Pasopotte. But then, I think of Rant, and how you let him go, and I think......WTF.... let it stand. Yeah, the errors in the bible bother me, because I don't believe God makes mistakes.

    So, I hope that helps you on the path of truth. Truth is better than lies. But sometimes the truth is incredibly hard to bear.

    It is likely because you have an expectation of the presentation of truth that puts emphasis on details being 100% correct. If a man would come to you tell you the truth about something, whose grammar was off, would that mean the truth of what he was saying is equally off? If a man told you lies with flawless grammar, does that validate what he is saying? When the donkey spoke to the prophet, did the donkey become infallible?

    Maybe it is easier for those God has spoken to others though as they can understand that the presentation information though a vessel that is not flawless can still communicate the information. They might give a word from God Almighty but it does not mean all spelling, punctuation, syntax will be equally from God. The wine might be excellent but the container can still have a chip. Does not affect the taste of the wine.

    Errors in the Bible opens up a whole new perspective if you claim to believe in the God of the Bible.

    Not because there might or might not be, but because, if there are any, what are they?

    Are they apparent discrepancies that really are not, or are they apparently solid scriptures that are really not?

    Even better, are they intentional? If so, why and by whom?

    And, is there a way to find the truth any error hides or uncover what lies the error might be promoting?

    All we can really do is put faith that God's words are contained in and can be discerned from the Bible contents, and that He will find a way to let us discover them.

    There are two answers to this.
    1. The translators took liberties that were not warranted. Example; In Acts 12:4 the King James translators, for all their fine and brilliant capabilities, inserted the word "Easter". But the Greek, of Chaldean origin, is "Pascha" - the word for Passover. Easter is a heathen feast to the fertility goddess Ishtar and has nothing whatsoever to do with the Passover. So God did not make any mistake. The translators did.
    2. Your, and my intellect cannot cope with all that God reveals, and how He reveals it. If you were to give young boy of the The San people (or Saan), also known as Bushmen or Basarwa, members of various Khoisan indigenous hunter-gatherer people of Southern Africa who only knows the desert, a book on Calculus, he would not be able to cope with the mysteries it holds. This does not mean there are errors. When you, or I read the Bible, although it might be an accurate translation in our language, it contains the thoughts of the highest and brightest Mind in the universe. The only response to your, and my, dull and fallen intellect, is to say that it contains errors. But NO! It is just our puny minds that cannot fathom it.

    It is best to cast ourselves down to the ground before this mighty God and ask for His enlightenment.

    The point I see with all of what some folks believe are biblical errors would be summed up in what is said here...
    2 Thess 2:10-12 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

    Now if this is written in the bible, then exactly where would one expect this strong delusion to be found?

    Dear p,
    Apparently, according to Rev 22:18-19, "words" can be added and taken away, and there are apparently to be consequences for both actions. On the other hand, you can heed the testimony of Yeshua, and establish matters by the testimony of two or three witnesses. (Mt 18:16 & Dt 19:15). Plus his note that self witnessing is "not true" (John 5:31). Heeding both of these statements would clean up a lot of the misconceptions which are presented by means of the tare seeds propagated in the field of the bible. (Mt 13). Isaiah 8:20 should filter out any other misgivings.

    God makes no mistakes - humans do - however, God will never allow a human error to distort His message to His creation.


    This is why I do not worry about any errors in the bible.

    PS: Never any reason to delete your thoughts, opinions, beliefs -

    PPS: Truth is all that matters.
