    Hello i want to ask a question i consider myself a christian but i really had a rough time in beliving in God , there seems to be so many corruptions with the old testament i just cant belive it for example If a man is caught in the act of raping a young woman who is not engaged, he must pay fifty pieces of silver to her father. Then he must marry the young woman because he violated her, and he will never be allowed to divorce her. (Deuteronomy 22:28-29 NLT) like seriously really Bible? the girl has to marry him? and another verse is Deuteronomy 22:23-24

    If within the city a man comes upon a maiden who is betrothed, and has relations with her, you shall bring them both out of the gate of the city and there stone them to death: the girl because she did not cry out for help though she was in the city, and the man because he violated his neighbors wife. WOW and one last question we all now know that homosexuality is natural its common in more than 450 known species and if your identical twin is gay you have 75% of being gay too so why does God say that a man shall not lay in a bed with another man?

      We are not animals. God created us in His image, not the animals. So we can not be compared to animals. Remember- sin has entered the world! God did not create “bad” genetics, He did not create that 75%, but sin did. If you want scientific reasoning to go along with this check out Answers In Genesis and the Creation Museum- they have great answers!

      • great comment Abbee! I agree!

        we are wonderfully created in the Image of the TRUE & Living GOD!

        Sin entered into the world through Mankind’s Free Will with the HELP of Satan (The Adversary)

        But God in his love prepared a way to REDEEM our Fallen Race… and his name is JESUS CHRIST! 🙂

        Answers in Genesis and similar such sites are charlatans. They use scientific jargon and half truths to deceive believers.

        The reasoning behind the deception is simple: money. Religiosity is very commonly exploited in a manner not too dissimilar to the exploitation of a vice and you should be very wary of such exploitations.

        If you truly wish to see for yourself how AiG deceives you I personally recommend studying the mechanism of neutron capture that creates C14, consider the fact that C14 decays into N14 (the nuclide required to create C14 through neutron capture) and consider that this means the centre of a diamond will have N14 where the C14 once was after a C14 decays.

        Then I would ask that you enlighten yourself on the magnitude of free neutrons simply in the air around you and the ground beneath you. A neutron detector can achieve this.

        Once you are aware of this simply consider the fact that the highest cross section for N14 neutron capture is at room temperature energies and then ask yourself: “Why is AiG telling me that the C14 content at the centre of diamonds will EVER reach zero on earth!?”

        Then you will understand why I call them liars.

      Thanks for your Comment!

      Before I answer your Question, Let me just say… Be cautious when reading NEW translations of the Bible. There are people who are attempting to TAINT the Bible with the NEW translations to deceive the masses.

      I recommend the KJV (King Jame’s Version) because it is the oldest & Most reliable English Translation. But with that said, the Newer translations are not ALL bad, but you have to read it with Discretion.

      (Deuteronomy 22:23-24)

      Yes, If a MARRIED woman is allegedly raped but doesn’t Cry for HELP…. It was likely NOT rape. But Adultery. That is why they BOTH will be punished for the Sin.

      Marriage is a SACRED covenant between a man, his Wife, and GOD.

      It is NOT just a TITLE as today’s society claims. It is a VERY serious Covenant, and cannot be broken with a PIECE OF PAPER.

      That is why the Vow says “Til Death Do Us Part”… It is literally an OATH.

      and this was the JUST punishment for defying the Covenant made unto God.

      (Deuteronomy 22:28-29)

      (Deu 22:28) If a man find a damsel that is a virgin, which is not betrothed, and lay hold on her, and lie with her, and they be found;

      (Deu 22:29) Then the man that lay with her shall give unto the damsel’s father fifty shekels of silver, and she shall be his wife; because he hath humbled her, he may not put her away all his days.

      *** This means If a man finds a woman that ISN’T married, and he have MUTUAL Sex with her then he MUST take her as his WIFE and cannot leave her.

      BUT IF A MAN RAPES A WOMAN, He had to be KILLED, but SHE would be innocent.

      * Read the Scripture Below! * (KJV)

      (Deu 22:25) But if a man find a betrothed damsel in the field, and the man FORCE her (Rape), and lie with her: then THE MAN ONLY that lay with her shall die:

      (Deu 22:26) But unto the damsel thou shalt do nothing; there is in the damsel no sin worthy of death
      ( she is innocent ):

      for as when a man riseth against his neighbour, and slayeth him, even so is this matter:

      (Deu 22:27) For he found her in the field, and the betrothed damsel cried, and there was none to save her.

      I pray that this answers your Question!

      • monkone

        I actually have a separate question (potentially point) to make but I felt compelled to respond to some of the assertions here.

        Firstly, the placement of sovereignty on the KJV is, in my opinion, not a good practice in attempting to understand Christianity (unless one is undergoing a study into the psychology of humans who commit to religious beliefs).
        There are errors in the translation. For example, it’s impossible to translate a work like the bible from a highly interpretive language such as Hebrew to a much more specific language such English without having to impose personal interpretations when the need arises.

        The classic example of this is “thou shalt not suffer a witch to live”. A mistranslation which famously led to many women being murdered.
        However there are others.

        My point is: do not place too much stock in the KJV (or any english translation for that matter). The book contain excellent life lessons and messages but to believe it’s inerrant is to invite folly.

        As for Deuteronomy. If one is loose in how they interpret it with an emphasis on empathy over literalism then the morality of the rules laid down become more reasonable. A literal interpretation of what’s stated however invites highly questionable practice.

        Although having said that I’m finding myself losing any will to continue talking about Deuteronomy as I’ve done it too many times.

        If it was a set of rules written today we’d reject the rules instantly as too open to abuse and unfair to the woman, yet because it’s in the bible we feel a need to defend it. I don’t agree with this practice and feel that Deuteronomy simply was not a good law maker.

        • It is not enough for you to say that the bible contains misinterpretations and it be factual.

          The bible was translated to Greek first & to English Second…. so although SOME words may be different, the underlying MESSAGE remains constant and cannot be denied.

          What difference would it make if a HEBREW passage says…

          “A Dog can Jump High When He is Joyful”

          And an English Version that Translates…

          “A Dog can Leap High When He is Happy?

          Answer: There is no Difference, the same MEANING is still concluded… maybe in a DIFFERENT way but concluded non the less.

          So Although the Scriptures may not be PERFECTLY translated, we have Nifty little TOOLS that helps us come CLOSE!

    One thing I see often amongst Christians is the belief that there’s no contradictions in the bible.

    The excuse that’s often touted as the reason for no contradictions in the bible is context, that people who are seeing a contradiction are only looking at the context wrong.

    However there’s some contradictions which utterly defy the context argument. Any situation where there’s a conflict in the numerical value stated for a single event such as “how many people were here?” or “how many of x did y capture?” is explicitly a contradiction by definition.

    There are such contradictions in the bible, ie two contradicting values for how many horsemen King David captured or the number of people who came back from captivity by the babylonians.

    These are absolute contradictions. There is no way to argue that they’re not.

    Therefore it is a lie to say there are no contradictions in the bible. I do not see a problem with accepting this.

    It may be a God inspired piece of work but it’s ultimately a man made book and men make mistakes. God does not hold hands.

    If anything I see these statements that there are no errors in the bible as potentially fatal to the Christian faith in an age where information is getting easier and easier to find. It won’t be long before people can instantly check the validity of such assertions the moment they are made without interrupting a conversation flow and the discovery of their falsehood will destroy the credibility of the persons who make the claim.

    Although perhaps “fatal” is too strong a word. There’s already many Christian groups who’ve abandoned the doctrine of inerrancy, such as the unitarians.
    As a side note on something of personal interest which is relevant here: Newton was a unitarian, I’ve known about unitarianism for a long time but only recently took up studying Newton and was surprised when I discovered that.

      What scriptures are you referencing as contradictions?

      Which two scriptures contradict one another?

      Mention them and I will address them.

      But your post (in its simplest form) simply says…

      “The Bible Contradicts itself”

      …. but it offers no evidence to support the claim…

      In order for anything to contradict, there must be TWO that are opposed.

      So what TWO passages of scripture oppose one another?

      I look forward to your response!

      • monkone

        This is just two examples. There’s more

        For the horsemen, it appears I got my numbers wrong as well ^_^ Ah well. We all make mistakes. Even those of us who wrote a part of the bible!

        Samuel 8:4: And David took from him a thousand chariots, and seven hundred horsemen, and twenty thousand footmen: and David houghed all the chariot horses, but reserved of them for an hundred chariots.

        Chronicles 18:4: And David took from him a thousand chariots, and seven thousand horsemen, and twenty thousand footmen: David also houghed all the chariot horses, but reserved of them an hundred chariots.

        That’s a flat out contradiction.

        Look, there’s plenty of examples. What *exactly* was written on the sign above Jesus’s head when he was on the cross?

        If you say one quote from the bible I can use the same bible you used to contradict you!

        I’m sorry but your faith is blind on this one. It’s a false doctrine.

        • These 2 scriptures indeed APPEARS to contradict one another but they don’t.

          If you study the Hebrew ROOT words ( Greek Concordance ) You will see that the two numbers MATCH UP!

          chariots: As 1Ch_18:4 seven hundred. In the parallel place in Chronicles it is “seven thousand horsemen, a far more probable number. The letter ז, zayin, with a dot upon it stands for seven thousand, and the final letter ן, noon, for seven hundred. The great similarity of these letters might easily cause the one to be mistaken for the other, and so produce an error in this place.

          This is what is called a TRANSLATIONAL error.

          Because the 3 languages ( Hebrew, Greek English ) are so different… ALL words used in Hebrew could not be ACCURATELY translated so they simply had to use words CLOSE to the meaning… thus producing this minor TRANSLATION misinterpretation.

          **Regarding Your False Doctrine Comment**

          There is a plain explanation for the cause of that TRANSLATIONAL error, but even that alone is not enough to discredit the Bible.

          The Divinity of the Text still stands.

    • In Matthew, Jesus declares “Who ever is not WITH me is against me”…. This means that If anyone isn’t HELPING, they are HURTING by not helping.

      In Mark, Jesus Declares “Whoever is not AGAINST US, is FOR us…

      wow I actually just saw this, I apologize.

      But this is a simple question, both are true.

      If a person is not with Jesus then he is against him.
      And if a person is not against Jesus, then he is for him.

      for example: I am not against Jesus, I am for him.
      You are against Jesus, because you are not for him.
