Bring up anything you like as long as it is factual.<quoted text>
This is the thing a lot of you don't get...I, and others, are not diminishing your beliefs but are reacting to the Christian contention that you have the truth or know for a fact that an unseen God exists. Believe what you want, but that doesn't mean the bible can't be discussed, debated or dissected.
If you are uncomfortable with people bringing up discrepancies and contradictions in the bible then maybe it's because you know the bible is in fact quite inconsistent and you simply don't wish to acknowledge that to yourself.
There are some inconsistancies but you never take into account who said what and whom they were saying it. The speakers covered a long time and different peoples. What Isiah would say to the Jews would be very different than what Paul would say to the gentiles.
Also you expect the bible to be easily translated into English. Some English words weren't found in Aramaic, Hebrew, Greek or Latin which would also account for discrepencies.
