Don’t Allow the “Flaws” of the Bible Make You Lose Faith!

Albert Einstein, arguably the world’s most intelligent man… once said something to the effect of, “We don’t know 1/10 of 1 percent of ANYTHING in this world”.

Meaning no matter how smart and intelligent any of us think we are… we’re all still a little bit on the dumb side.

Ouch!

With that said… I would like to say that there are many people out there, who are losing faith in the Bible… and then in God… because of many so-called “contradictions” that appear in the Bible.

NEVER allow any of these supposed “flaws” or “contradictions” to affect your faith. Keep reading and I will explain why…

I don’t want this to be a looooooong blog post… so I won’t go too much into detail on it all, but I will say that most people get real hung up on the differences between the New Testament and the Old Testament.

So, in typical Daniel Wiafe fashion — I will attempt to do the impossible, and break down those differences in 3 sentences or less. Are ya ready for a little Bible Study?

The laws of the Old Testament for the most part… can be broken down into three main categories. Priestly Law, Kingly Law, and Moral Law… most of which were fulfilled (or completed) with the coming of Jesus Christ.

Priestly Law included things such as “Only a priest can take a sacrifice to be burned for the forgiveness of your sin… and If you have a skin disease, you must go outside of the city limits for 7 days”.

Jesus is now our HIGH PRIEST (Hebrews 5-7)… and has completed ALL the requirements of the Priestly Law of God.

Kingly Law included such things as “An eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth… or things such as if you disobey your parents, you will be taken outside of the city limits and stoned (now that’s a nice way to get kids to behave!).

The Kingly Law was devised solely for the nation of Israel at that time… to govern their kingdom. It does not apply to those of us who are NOT living in that kingdom. The “kingly law” that we follow now — are the laws of the country that we live in.

The Moral Law is really the “heart” of God. It includes the 10 commandments (Exodus 20)… and states things such as ‘Do not kill, do not steal, do not commit adultery, love god, etc.’.

This is still in effect today… and in fact was summed up into a couple life-changing sentences. “Love God. Love People.” (Matthew 22:36-38).

Any other Bible difficulties you may have — it DOES NOT matter. In the end, the Bible tells us that “ALL Scripture is given by the inspiration of God” (2 Timothy 3:16)

…and I don’t know about you… but the very fact that Jesus was beaten and endured punishment for my healing, was buried in a dark tomb for three days, and then rose up from the dead one sunny Sunday morning with full power and authority… is ALL that I need to know & understand!

I don’t quite understand how a car motor runs or how the combustion process works in an engine… but I have FAITH that my car will run every morning!

I don’t fully understand the physics or the geometric complexities that cause the earth to tilt a few degrees to one side… and causes the earth to never get to close or to far away from the sun. All I know is that the sun comes up in the morning… and is never late going down in the evening!

So in the end… it doesn’t matter what I think, it doesn’t matter what others say, it doesn’t matter how many so-called “wise and educated” people set out to disprove Jesus (and the existence of God for that matter)… I have made up in my mind that I will TRUST and BELIEVE in the Jesus, who rose for me… and I will believe EVERY word that comes from the Bible, even if I don’t understand it all.

Blessings to you all… and have a GREAT day!
