Disclaimer: This is not to be a KJVO thread. Although I am KJVO, this is not the focus of this thread. Now, on towards the topic at hand. I am currently in discussion on a different forum with a former minister who doesn't believe any Bible is the word of God in any form (e.g., KJV, NIV, NKJV, ASV, any manuscripts, etc.). The topic we are discussing is "supposed contradictions in the Bible". The discussion is set up in a fashion where this fella will give a supposed contradiction and then I explain how he is mistaken. Although this type of discussion is against my better judgment for the most part, I was swept in and am now in full swing. Thus far the issues have been trivial and not troubling to the least, but I think something may come up eventually if the discussion continues long and the Lord tarries. Here is what I ask of you fellow BBers. I am going to post some of the "contradictions" brought up by this unbeliever. I ask that those of you who believe the Bible as it stands (even if you believe it stands in various versions), in inerrancy, and without contradiction, that you would give your thoughts and answers for the given questions. Please, I beseech you brethren, even if we disagree on the KJV issue, do not make that an issue for this thread. I am seeking a response or responses in a positive manner, not the usual ridicule and trouble that a few of you so enjoy casting. The discussion that I am having with this individual is over all versions, but has been specified to the KJV between he and I so that we have a standard to base the discussion on, I ask that you would do the same here. Thanks ahead of time for the assistance and encouragement.
