Chronicles 1 And 2: My Continued Struggle To Prove How The Bible Is Based On Lies.

2076 words - 8 pages

1 CHRONICLESI-IX: The first nine chapters perfectly exemplify the endless genealogies that Paul tells us to avoid in 1Tim.i.4 and Tit.iii.9.i.25: Shortest verse in the Old Testament in case you were wondering.i.32: This verse refers to Keturah as Abraham's concubine when Gen.xxv.1 says that she was his wife.i.43: For some reason the editors copied the verse of Gen.xxxvi.31.ii.15: It states here that David was Jesse's seventh son. Given that seven is a number of great symbolic significance, that is not too surprising. However, 1Sam.xvi.10-11 states that he was actually his eighth, so which 'divinely inspired' author is correct?iii.19-20: the sons of Zerubbabel; Meshullam, and Hananiah, Jusha-bhesed, five. How can there be five sons of Zerubbabel when 7 males and one female are listed?iii.22: Hattush, and Igeal and Barial, and Neariah, and Shaphat, six. Five names don't total six.viii.33: According to this verse, the names of the sons of Saul and Jonathan were Esh-baal and Merib-baal despite the fact that both worshipped Yahweh. So problematic is this fact that the editors changed their names in 2Sam.ii.8 & ix.6.x.14: This verse gives us two pieces of information, which are contradicted elsewhere. Firstly the writers state that when Saul visited the witch of Endor he inquired not of the Lord, but in 1Sam.xxviii.6 it says that he did. More glaringly is its assertion that because of this, Yahweh slew him which is contradicted three times in the Bible, each giving a different account.xi.5: There is here recorded the name Bealiah, which is translated as 'Yah is Baal'.xii.8: The Gadites had faces like lions and could run as fast as deer on the mountains.xiii.10: As already mentioned in 1 King{, Uzza was electrocuted by the ark.xiv.15: The use of omens to predict the future.xvi.30: Claims that the earth doesn't move.xvii.12&14: God himself promising to maintain the kingdom and throne of David forever. This didn't exactly happen.xviii.4: David takes from Hadarezer seven thousand horsemen which in 2Sam.viii.4 was only 700.ixx.18: David slew of the Syrians seven thousand men which fought in chariots with the other 40,000 victims being footmen while 2Sam.x.18 says it was only 700 men killed and the rest were horsemen.xx.3: This gruesome way of killing one's enemies by actually cutting them alive with saws, and with harrows of iron, and with axes was conducted by one of Yahweh's favourites!xxi.1: In the previous account it was Yahweh himself who had provoked David to number Israel but because that was too problematic to explain, they now put the blame on Satan who makes his first appearance.xxi.5: Israel here is recorded as having had 640,000 more swordsmen than Judah, when in 2Sam.xxiv.9 it was only 300,000 more. Regardless, this verse claims that Israel had 1,100,000 men in its army which is only slightly less than the active duty soldiers in today's American army.xxi.22-25: David gave to Ornan for the place six hundred shekels of gold by weight....

Bible Based Message on the Importance of Forgiveness

2850 words - 11 pages paying back. Biblical forgiveness always insists on personal moral responsibility, but the right of retribution is transferred to God, to whom it rightfully belongs. In transferring the wrongdoing to a higher court, we are not overturning justice, but just cooperating with God’s word. This is made clear in the following verses: God is just: He will pay back trouble to those who trouble you and give relief to you who are troubled (2 Thess 1:6-7) We will be better able to love each other, and live in peace and harmony if we eschewed anger and bitterness towards each other by being more forgiving.
