Have you ever had a skeptic of the Christian faith confidently present an alleged Bible contradiction leaving you wondering whether their objection was accurate or perhaps just a canard?
To help Christians discern fact from fiction in such situations, Crosstalk presented this first of a two part series that looks at this subject through the book, Demolishing Supposed Bible Contradictions: Exploring Forty Alleged Contradictions by Ken Ham of Answers in Genesis.
This Crosstalk has Jim Schneider interviewing Roger Patterson, the Editor and Curriculum writer for Answers in Genesis. They look at various ways you can challenge today’s secular and humanistic accusations including:
--In Genesis 2:17, God says that the day that Adam and Eve ate from the forbidden tree, they would die. Yet they didn't die that day. What's the response to this?
--Does the Bible’s use of the word “firmament” teach a false cosmology by communicating that the sky is solid?
--Is it OK to kill like David killing Goliath or Joshua eliminating the Canaanites? Or is killing forbidden according to the Ten Commandments in Exodus 20:13?
--Why was Rahab praised for lying in James 2:25 when lying is forbidden in the Ten Commandments?
--If Jesus was to be in the grave three days and nights, how do we fit those between Good Friday and Easter Sunday?
--Why does the Bible list bats among the birds?
These and other alleged Bible contradictions are unraveled on this edition of Crosstalk.
