10 Pairs of Bible Verses That Totally Contradict Each Other

Slavery in the bible

To Enslave or Not to Enslave? – Leviticus 25:45 & Isaiah 58:6

These two bibles verses produce mixed messages in regards to the institution of slavery. Leviticus 25:45 reads, “Moreover of the children of the strangers that do sojourn among you, of them shall ye buy, and of their families that are with you, which they begat in your land: and they shall be your possession.” Yet, Isaiah 58:6 challenges this view when it asks, “Is not this the fast that I have chosen? to loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke?”



No Good Deed Goes Unpunished – Matt 5:16 & Matt 6:3-4

The Bible offers different views when it comes to the execution of performing good deeds. In the same book one verse states that one should do good deeds for others to see, while another statement conveys that one should perform good deeds secretly. For example, Matthew 5:16 reads, “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.” However, Matthew 6:3-4 reads, “But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth:That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly.”

  1. you are unlearned…..

  2. All contradictions will be rationalized in order to maintain the false idea of biblical inerrancy.
    "Creationist Christians think that if the Bible is wrong, then God lied. They cannot accept that God could exist but the Bible be wrong because they can’t distinguish doctrine from deity. So it is a form of idolatry wherein the believers worship man-made compilations as though those books were God himself -because they think it is HIS word. But God never wrote or dictated any of the scriptures of any religion. Everything men chose to reject from or include in their supposedly “inalterable word” of whatever god was conceived, composed, compiled, translated, interpreted, edited, and often deliberately altered and enhanced by mere fallible men." – AronRa.

    Through biblical hermeneutic and properly exegeting “the Word” through the Holy Spirit, those aforementioned Bible scriptures can be easily explained and justified. Lay readers and scholars alike must understand that both the Old and New Testament covenant documents must be interpreted from a historical, cultural and grammatical perspective to get the true meanings. Many verses are literal, and many verses are figurative, this is why we are reminded in the scriptures to, “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth” (2 Timothy 2:15), so that Christians can defend our faith through scholarly insights that solidify our faith in Jesus. On another note, I am very disappointed that Atlanta BlackStar for posting this unsubstantiated garbage. Do your homework please!

  4. It's about "context" people, "context".

  5. please explain the context to us, the unlearned?
