i am finishing up reading the whole Bible.
and i found way too many errors, contradictions, and omissions.
our preacher man says they really dont exist and he will respond only to specific ones. way too many to take that path.
does anyone have a general method to handle all the issues that are obvious?
and what about the subtle ones that take deeper research and analysis ??
too many people merely deny they exist and illogically assume that every word is literally 100% true when that is provably false using the Bible itself.
clearly there are allegories, parables, exaggerations, yada yada. the contradictions are there in black and white if you read it. samuel says elhanon killed goliath. QED.
our preacher guy wont even tell us his view of hermeneutics to help us understand some of his wild and apparently contradictory claims. that would add another dimension to sorting out the truth when you have to also decide which hermunetics approach is valid.
does anyone have a general method to read this and sort it all out to understand the actual truth and avoid the man made bulloney that has been attributed to the Bible ?
i do not have any faith in any individual human to do it 100% accurately.
