So your argument is that when the bible contradicts itself it is not a contradiction? Next you will say that the bible is not literal but parables and when it says in Psalms 137:9 to rejoice as you kill innocent babies that really means love right? And owning slaves and being allowed to beat them, that is gods pure love for every one?It is fairly safe to say that most people have only a superficial concept of what constitutes a genuine contradiction. An important truth that must be hammered home repeatedly is this: a mere difference does not a contradiction make!
What, then, constitutes a contradiction? In logic, the Law of Contradiction is stated succinctly as follows:Nothing can both be and not be(Jevons, 1928, p. 117). That is a very abbreviated form of the rule. Aristotle, in a more amplified format, expressed it this way.That the same thing should at the same time both be and not be for the same person and in the same respect is impossible.
An analysis of the Law of Contradiction, therefore, would suggest the following. When one is confronted with an alleged contradiction, he must ask himself these questions:(1) Is the same thing or person under consideration?(2) Is the same time period in view?(3) Is the language that seems to be self-contradictory employed in the same sense? It is quite important that these questions be answered correctly.
For instance, let us analyze the following two statements: Robert is rich. Robert is poor. Do these statements contradict one another? The answer is not necessarily! First, two different people named Robert could be under consideration. Second, two different time frames might be in view; Robert could have been rich but, due to financial disaster, he became poor. Third, the terms rich and poor might have been used in different senses; Robert could be spiritually rich but economically poor. The point is this: it never is proper to assume a contradiction exists until every possible means of harmonization has been fully exhausted. Now, let this principle be applied to the Bible.
Lets discuss the first one on your list..God both loves and hates? No, for though these terms are opposites, when used of God they do not express His disposition toward the same objects. God loves every sinner in the world (John 3:16), but He hates every false way (Psalm 119:104). He loves righteousness, but hates iniquity (Psalm 45:7), and hence responds toward such with either goodness or severity (Romans 11:22). No contradiction exists here.
Shall I go throug all on your list ?
Nice try but your bull is just bull
