Handling 5 of the BIGGEST Objections to Faith

Objection #4The Bible is full or errors and contradictions it cannot be the word of God.

2 Timothy 3:16-17, "All scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work."

How Do I Help?
  1. As them to be specific.
  2. Don't feel like you have to answer on the spot.
  3. Do your research.
  4. Pray.
  • A difference is NOT the same thing as a contradiction.
  • It is only a contradiction if there is conclusively NO possible answer for how the verses or passages can be in agreement.
11 Reasons Skeptics Think the Bible is in Error...

1. Assuming the unexplained is unexplainable.

2. Confusing our fallible interpretations with God's infallible revelation.
  • While the Bible is infallible, human interpretations are not.
3. Failure to understand the context.

4. Forgetting the Bible's Human Characteristics.

5. Assuming a partial report is a false report.

6. Assuming divergent accounts are false.

7. Presuming that the Bible approves of all it records.

8. Neglecting to not literary devices.

9. Forgetting that ONLY the original text is inerrant.

     What about Copyist Errors??
  • These are errors in the copies, not the original.
  • They are minor errors which do not affect the teaching.
  • These errors are amazingly few in number.
  • Usually, by context, we know which is in error.
  • Even though there was a copy error, the entire message comes through.
10. Confusing general with universal statements.

11. Forgetting that later revelations supersede earlier ones.
