i don't know if this has already been done, but i think this is going to be a good help for everyone, especially if many will be contributing what they know on explanation on scriptures that, at first glance, seem to contradict each other. let me start, but with a common one: Text: Eph. 2:8-9 vs. James 2:17 Issue: Faith with or without works? Explanation: this do not actually contradict. true, it is faith without works which is required for salvation (Ephesians). however, such faith, if true, will produce works (James). it is not the case of faith plus works equals salvation. it is simply faith equals salvation, but such a faith, if true, will result to works. i think it will also help if anyone who sees a contradiction in the bible but cannot explain it ask here for help.
