Whacked Bible Contradictions: 6
So here’s ole YHWH, the Alzheimer god, forgetting what he said from one book to another.
The earth lasts forever:
-Psalm 78:69, “He built his sanctuary like the heights, like the earth that he established forever.”
-Ecclesiastes 1:4, “One generation passes away, and another generation comes: but the earth abides forever.”
The earth lasts forever, not:
-II Peter 3:10, “But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.”
-Revelation 21:1, “Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea.”
And here he is forgetting what he said from one chapter to another.
Jeremiah 3:12, “For I am merciful, saith the Lord, and I will not keep anger forever.”
Jeremiah 17:4, “Ye have kindled a fire in mine anger, which shall burn forever.” How can his anger be forever if his anger isn’t forever?
And showing that the apple does not fall far from the tree, YHWH’s boy, JC, seems to be similarly absent-minded.
Hide it under a bushel? No!
Matthew 5:16, “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.”
Hide it under a bushel? Yes!
Matthew 6:1, “Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven.”
And he seems to be confused about his job description too.
John 9:39, Jesus said, “For judgment I have come into this world,”
John 12:47, “For I did not come to judge the world, but to save it.”
And ya gotta wonder if the YHWH/JC family didn’t have some ‘issues’.
Love yer bro
1 John 4:20, If anyone says, “I love God,” yet hates (μιση) his brother, he is a liar. For anyone who does not love his brother, whom he has seen, cannot love God, whom he has not seen.”
Love yer bro, not
Luke 14:26, “If anyone comes to me and does not hate (μισει) his father and mother, his wife and children, his brothers and sisters—yes, even his own life—he cannot be my disciple.
And finally, here’s a question that ought to bug anyone who still thinks YHWH is such a great guy.
Around the time Jesus was born, Herod ordered the murder of innocent children (Matthew 2:16)
In the time of Moses, God killed the firstborn of every household in Egypt(Exodus 11:4-5).
How is God morally different from King Herod?
There are enough contradictions, examples of monstrous behavior by god and followers, and the like to fill a book. In fact they do fill a book; the bible. This series has just highlighted a small sampling. I’m going to leave off this series here. Hope y’all found it useful, fun, instructive, etc.
