So-Called “Contradictions” of the Bible Which Unbelievers Will Use against You: Introduction by Rachel V.

Have you ever had that experience where an unbeliever caught you off guard? Were you dumbfounded, confused, befuddled, maybe even scared? Did you feel like you didn’t do the Christian faith justice, or that you could have done better?
If you answered “yes” to any of the above questions, you’ve come to the right place.

If you’re like me, witnessing can sound a bit scary.  What if I don’t know the right answer?
But studying the bible can be the best thing in your life to cure this phobia…trust me.
Don’t know the answer to a tough question of the scripture? Study it. Think about it. Turn it over in your mind, and God will bless you.
“Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” (2 Timothy 2:15)
“But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear.” (1 Peter 3:15)
“The heart of the righteous studieth to answer… “ (Proverbs 15:28a)

Also, you should know a very important definition before we start this series: Apologetics means “defending the faith”.

In addition, I highly recommend listening to Greg Koukl’s lecture series entitled “Tactics for Defending the Faith” from Stand to Reason Ministries. It is extremely useful for helping you to be better acquitted in defending the faith, how to control the conversation, and how to be courteous about it. He states: “We want to be on the offensive without being offensive”.  His tactics, including the Colombo tactic (asking questions), will greatly help you the next time you are witnessing to an unbeliever.

In this series, I will be bringing before you some so-called “contradictions” that unbelievers might stump you with. PLEASE NOTE: I am not in any way whatsoever saying that there are ANY contradictions in the Word of God. I am, in fact, saying quite the opposite. This whole series is to prove that there are none in the Bible.

Study with me and be blessed.
