Answering Atheists - Bible Contradictions?

May God Bless you Team

Atheist came to me and said.

"John, you keep saying my interpretation of verses is wrong, but offer no other possible ways to see them. Why would you not correct the context? No contradictions? One book says Mary was a virgin, another says she was a young woman for starters. Let's see a few more-

God dwells in chosen temples

2 Chron 7:12,16

God dwells not in temples

Acts 7:48

Man was created after the other animals

Gen 1:25,26,27

Man was created before the other animals

Gen 2:18,19

God hardened Pharaoh's heart

Ex 4:21/ Ed 9:12

Pharaoh hardened his own heart

Ex 8:15

There died of the plague twenty-four thousand

Num 25:9

There died of the plague but twenty-three thousand

1 Cor 10:8

John the Baptist was Elias

Matt 11:14

John the Baptist was not Elias

John 1:21

The father of Joseph, Mary's husband was Jacob

Matt 1:16

The father of Mary's husband was Heli

Luke 3:23

There were fourteen generations from Abraham to David

Matt 1:17

There were but thirteen generations from Abraham to David

Matt 1:2-6

Christ preached his first sermon on the mount

Matt 5:1,2

Christ preached his first sermon on the plain

Luke 6:17,20"

A lot of so called "contradictions" put forward by this clearly uneducated Bible Critic.

I took the time to show him. Hope this helps you answer more atheist's in future and any bible contradictions are welcome, there are no contradictions in God's word in the King James Version. End of story, People can misinterpret all day! 

And i was replying in conversation form that's why its written like it is.

I will answer each one and actually show you how uneducated you are on the subject, and show you how you misinterpret things easy, you are a fool sir, you changed the topic because your beat. I will answer anything you have got about Illuminati or the proof of God, so for a start your taking those words from wrong versions, Gods word is in the KJV, so i will use that to destroy your last comment.

God dwells in chosen temples
-2 Chronicles 7:12,16

God dwells not in temples
-Acts 7:48

"And the LORD appeared to Solomon by night, and said unto him, I have heard thy prayer, and have chosen this place to myself for an 
house of sacrifice." - 2 Chronicles 7:12

"For now have I chosen and sanctified this house, that my name may be there for ever: and mine eyes and mine heart shall be there perpetually." - 2 Chronicles 7:16

This verse says the lord has chosen a house of sacrifice, and he sanctified it and made it his own, now lets look at your supposed contradiction.

"Howbeit the most High dwelleth not in temples made with hands; as saith the prophet" - Acts 7:48

Contradiction? lets see what verse comes next.

"Heaven is my throne, and earth is my footstool: what house will ye build me? saith the Lord: or what is the place of my rest?
Hath not my hand made all these things?" - Acts 7:49-50

God is clearly talking about a different thing than in Chronicles, in Chr he was saying he will be in the place of where they worship because its a holy place, so that's true, and he is, and then in Acts it clearly is just explaining that God does not LIVE in those places, for Heaven is his throne and earth his footstool, so no contradiction just God clarifying that he his domain is Heaven, but he is present in chosen temples. NO CONTRADICTION - MISUNDERSTANDING YES?

Man was created after the other animals
-Gen 1:25,26,27

Man was created before the other animals
-Gen 2:18,19

This such a misunderstanding its funny, why won't you listen when i tell you any reason you have is a misunderstanding?

in Gen 1:25,26, - God made all the living creatures, and they filled the WORLD, so Gods creating creatures that filled the world, and then he made man. OK so God has filled the world with creatures now made man. that's what we know. lets look at how the misunderstanding comes in.

and i will point this verse out.

"And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it." - Genesis 2:15

OK so God filled the world with animals, but now hes taken man to this perfect Garden of Eden, separated from all the other animals and everything else.

"And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.
And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof." - Genesis 2:18-19

So God is now in the Garden with Adam, and God created all the each of the animals THAT HAD ALREADY BEEN CREATED, and brought them to Adam so that he could name them, no contradiction, God is just forming animals that are already outside the Garden, and then bringing them to Adam to name, so again brother this does not contradict anything, YOUR MISUNDERSTANDING AGAIN? YOU SHOULD LISTEN WHEN I SAY THAT.

God hardened Pharaoh's heart
-Ex 4:21/ Ed 9:12

Pharaoh hardened his own heart
-Ex 8:15

Again brother, MISUNDERSTANDING, see if you took the time to research your claims, you would probably be saved by now. Lets look at what Ex 4:21 says.

"And the LORD said unto Moses, When thou goest to return into Egypt, see that thou do all those wonders before Pharaoh, which I have put in thine hand: but I will harden his heart, that he shall not let the people go." - Exo 4:21

This is regarding a specific event, Letting the people go! God hardened his heart in this instance that he would not let the people go got it?

Same thing with Ex 9:12 - God hardened his heart so that even after boils were inflicted Pharaoh would still not let them go. so lets look at the contradiction lol.

"And they gathered them together upon heaps: and the land stank.
But when Pharaoh saw that there was respite, he hardened his heart, and hearkened not unto them; as the LORD had said." - Exodus 8:14-15

This is simply describing the land stank so Pharaoh had to harden his own heart and not hearken to the Lord, there is no contradiction here, every time it says the Lord hardened his heart, The Lord did it, every time it says he hardened his heart, HE did it, no contradiction COMMON MISUNDERSTANDING THOUGH? i am typing this out right now brother and i haven't even seen the other examples you have used, but its been easy enough so far to show you how uneducated you are on this subject and how you are easy to mislead and easy to misunderstand things.

There died of the plague twenty-four thousand
-Num 25:9

There died of the plague but twenty-three thousand
-1 Cor 10:8

LOL really going to kick yourself at how silly you feel.

"And those that died in the plague were twenty and four thousand." - Numbers 25:9

Total number of people who died in the plague 24,000 - no complaint

"Neither let us commit fornication, as some of them committed, and fell in one day three and twenty thousand." - 1 Corinthians 10:8

"AND FELL IN ONE DAY 23,000" - The plague obviously lasted longer than one day, this is simply telling us 23,000 died in one day - YOUR FACE SHOULD BE BRIGHT RED, you don't have a clue lol and anybody saying there is any contradictions in the bible does not have a clue, ONLY MISUNDERSTANDINGS. But lets keep going.

John the Baptist was Elias
-Matt 11:14

John the Baptist was not Elias
-John 1:21

Easy to get confused about, but shows how much you actually know, believe me, no contradictions MANY MISUNDERSTANDINGS.

This following verse will help clear it up.

"But the angel said unto him, Fear not, Zacharias: for thy prayer is heard; and thy wife Elisabeth shall bear thee a son, and thou shalt call his name John.
And thou shalt have joy and gladness; and many shall rejoice at his birth.
For he shall be great in the sight of the Lord, and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink; and he shall be filled with the Holy Ghost, even from his mother's womb.And many of the children of Israel shall he turn to the Lord their God.
And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elias, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord." - Luke 1:13-17

From this passage we see a few things.

One, John was born through Elizabeth, a relative of Jesus' mother Mary. Thus, John could not have literally been Elijah. The man Elijah had already been born many hundreds of years prior. And he is still alive, as he was taken directly up to heaven alive in a chariot of fire according to the Scriptures (2 Kings 2). He will come again before Jesus' Second Coming (Malachi 4).

The second thing we see is the prophecy of the angel: "He will go on before the Lord, in the spirit and power of Elijah". Jesus (who was John's cousin), knew that John would have a ministry that would function in the spirit of Elijah. But John was not literally Elijah. The ministry of the real Elijah is understood as returning to the earth just prior to the return of Jesus the Messiah and prepare the people of Israel to receive Him. John the Baptist's ministry was a foreshadowing of Elijah's ministry in that he prepared the people of Israel to receive the first coming of their Messiah. Do you understand now? When Jesus said to his disciples that Elijah had already come, he was speaking figuratively, not literally. Again, Jesus knew that John was his cousin, born by Elizabeth. And as a Jew who believed the Old Testament, obviously Jesus did not believe in, nor teach reincarnation. This is simple common sense.

So no contradiction, MISUNDERSTANDING.

The father of Joseph, Mary's husband was Jacob
-Matt 1:16

The father of Mary's husband was Heli
-Luke 3:23

Too many misunderstandings like this happen seriously you guys need to get a clue about the Bible.

Matthew 1 and Luke 3 contain two genealogies. Matthew 1 is Joseph’s genealogy and Luke 3 is Mary’s genealogy. 

Its a misunderstanding you have sir, if you would like it explained better just in case you really think you have a contradiction see this article explaining in full.

There were fourteen generations from Abraham to David
-Matt 1:17

There were but thirteen generations from Abraham to David
-Matt 1:2-6

again a genealogy argument i have come across all of these, ALL MISUNDERSTANDINGS so instead of explaining i give you this link that has it detailed, GET EDUCATED, NO CONTRADICTIONS

Christ preached his first sermon on the mount
-Matt 5:1,2

Christ preached his first sermon on the plain
-Luke 6:17,20

This shows me you really just take anything you find on the Internet, oh this says its a contradiction, lets copy and paste and just say that it is, sir you have no idea the judgement will put on you for your idiocy, why not get saved and book up for heaven he still wants you to!

"And seeing the multitudes, he went up into a mountain: and when he was set, his disciples came unto him:" - Mathew 5:1

clear enough? he saw them, went up to the mountain.

"And he came down with them, and stood in the plain, and the company of his disciples, and a great multitude of people out of all Judaea and Jerusalem, and from the sea coast of Tyre and Sidon, which came to hear him, and to be healed of their diseases;" - Luke 6:17

first words there, "AND HE CAME DOWN WITH THEM, AND STOOD IN THE PLAIN" - where is the contradiction lol?
there is none, the scripture is accurate all the way through trust me, and its open for misinterpretation if you want to believe there is its your health hazard, but every now and again you will get a Christian who knows what hes talking about.


Don't believe the Bible has contradictions because a page on Google says it does.


get educated brother

There are no contradictions in the King James Bible, there are no contradictions in the word of God. 

Will post more atheist failures in the future, GET SAVED.
