Answering: Errors and Contradictions In The Bible

“Holding fast the faithful word as he hath been taught,
that he may be able by sound doctrine both to
exhort and to convince the gainsayers.”

~Titus 1:9, kjv

How many times has someone approached you and made this charge? “The Bible is full of errors and contradictions!”

I counsel my friends to simply reply, “Prove it. Show me one.”

Nine times out of ten, the false accuser couldn’t show you an example of any supposed error or contradiction in the Bible, even if their lives depended on it. However, these same people can now run to the internet or public library and get a list of supposed errors and so-called contradictions in the Bible. They can then return with “proof”.

Sadly, many times the believer who is confronted with these “errors and contradictions” is unable to give an answer, as Peter told us we should be able to do (1 Peter 3:15). Few believers are prepared to “contend for the faith” as Jude teaches us in verse 3 of his book.

So, what should we do? Should we just condemn and throw insults? No. We should seek to teach fellow believers so that they might be better used of God to preach the truth. And that is the purpose of this page.

On this page, you will find the most widely-used false accusations against God’s word. Click on the false accusation and you will go to a page giving you a summarized answer. You can then share this answer with the false accuser and then confront them with their need to accept the word of God and to repent and turn to Jesus Christ for salvation by trusting in His death, burial and resurrection as their hope for eternal life.
