Many people believe that the Bible is a divine book that was written by people inspired by God. The Bible is a spiritual book used by Christians to learn about the past and also to relate it with what intends them to do. Apart from being an inspirational book, the Bible can be considered to be a form of law. It contains commandments and also things that you should not do. The Bible has two testaments, that is the old and the New Testament. The Old Testament is based on life before the birth of Jesus Christ, while the New Testament is based on life after the birth of Christ. There are different types of the Bible, and these are the Hebrew Bible, the Greek Septuagint. Different organizations have taken up the task of publishing bibles and also translating them.
People have been reading the Bible for ages. However, there are some people who, after reading thoroughly it have found a lot of contradictions, errors, and inconsistencies in what is written in it. These people end up asking questions as to why a divine book written by men inspired by God would have contradicting verses and statements. This has led to some having doubts about Christianity as a religion and also proving that the Bible is a hoax. Some people have ended up becoming atheists and even converting to other religions. Other stout believers have emerged to defend the various contradictions, errors, and inconsistencies in the Bible. However, no matter what the situation, it is difficult to remain silent about these contradictions, errors, and inconsistencies.
This has led to the emergence of many people who want to discredit the Bible and prove that everything about it. Some people who have read the Bible intensively and found these contradictions, errors, and inconsistencies are from other religions and they use them to gain followers. Some people are very strong believers that they discredit anything that the people try to say about the Bible. If you do not know about these contradictions, errors, and inconsistencies, you should read the Bible thoroughly. However, reading the entire Bible is quite challenging. This is because this is a very large book that contains a lot of books and pages. It is for this reason that I have outlined some of the contradictions so that you can have an easy time identifying them and clarifying them for yourself.
At the beginning of the book of Genesis, it is stated that God created the man and woman on the same day after He had created everything, including the animals. However, in the following chapter, it states that God created man then animals and finally a woman. Also, in the book of Genesis it states that God created light before dividing it from darkness on the first day; but Genesis in a later verse it states that God created the sun, moon, and stars on the fourth day.
Also, in the book of Genesis chapter one verse eleven to twelve, it states that trees were created before man was created yet in the same book chapter 2 verse four to nine it states that man was created before trees were created.
