Every contradiction in the Bible in one convenient list

Did I miss any?

A contradiction occurs when two (or more) different statements on a topic cannot both be true at the same time and in the same sense.  For instance, let’s look at the statements “I am walking my dog,” and “I am not walking my dog.”  Both statements cannot both be true at the same time and in the same way.  They are mutually exclusive.  However, the following is not a contradiction:  “Bob saw two people get out of the 1967 black Camaro,” and “Frank saw three people get out of the 1967 black Camaro.”  These statements are not mutually exclusive because both statements can be true at the same time.  Bob may have been at an angle where he was only able to see two people, where Frank could have been at a different angle where he was able to see three people.  Both statements can be true at the same time and in the same sense without excluding the other.

When critics of the Bible offer contradictions within its pages, they very often fail to examine the context and apply the Law of non-contradiction properly.

In other words, there are no contradictions in the Bible.

God bless

* Jim, a good friend of the blog, posted a link to a list of supposed contradictions he has explained. To make it even easier to find, here it is.
