Skeptics Annotated Bible - A Response
Often in this day and age, it is claimed that the Bible contains contradictions. Many times a website is used in the attempt to prove that the critic is correct in the assertion that the Bible contains contradictions. Is this true? Does the Bible contain any contradictions? The answer is; absolutely not!
2Timothy 3:16I thought it would be a good learning exercise to go through the alledged contradictions offered by the critic, and demonstrate exactly how they have misunderstood the Bible, either intentionally or mistakenly, thereby explaining clearly what the Bible actually claims, in it's own words! I feel this would prove to be an excellent learning exercise for the professing Christian, and will also help to familiarize them with the most common claims being made against the Bible today. This will also help any person who may not know what the answers actually are, but are seeking truth, and thus, provide a good witnessing tool whenever the claims are made.
All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness

The Skeptic's Annotated Bible website offers 360+ alleged contradictions from the Bible. Are they right in their claims against the Bible? The answer of course is absolutely not! This website, among many others linked here, prove that our claim stands as true as God's sure word. In fact, by offering these "alleged" contradictions, this actually becomes a useful tool for any person who may not know what the true answers actually are, thus, providing a reason to study the Bible so that it may in fact reveal God's truths. This website appreciates such effort, and once again, to us, only proves that God's word is as certain as the morning sun or the full moon.
