not believe the Bible because it is filled with contradictions. My usual response is something like, “That’s interesting, could you share and example of one with me?” That question was usually – no always followed by silence. One of the reasons for that is that those telling me about the contradictions had never really read or found any. They were simply parroting what they had been told by someone else.
But there are some passages in the Bible that seem to be contradictory. 1 John 2:27 is one of them. That verse seems to contradict most of the New Testament including the book in which it is found. On the surface John seems to be telling his readers that they have no need to be taught in a book that is teaching them.
How do you resolve that? Take a shot and I will share some thoughts on how it may be resolved later, probably tomorrow.
