What Is
The WORD of GOD?
CHRISTIAN FLAG WAVING CHRISTIAN BIBLE HEADER CENTERCHRISTIAN FLAG WAVING CHRISTIAN
CHRISTIPEDIA™
Statement On The Holy Scriptures;
The ‘LENS’ Through Which 'ALL' Knowledge Is Understood;

THE WORD of GOD, AXIOM-1:
    "IF" there exists any such thing as 'THE WORD OF GOD!' [and ALL evidence proves such does exist:]

    "THEN" by inherent definition - it must be "GOD-BREATHED!"

      (Holy, Inspired, Inerrant, Infallible, Infinitive, Invincible, Indestructible, Inexhaustible, Intrepid,Inalienable, Immutable, Implacable, Impossible-to-Improve: Indubitable and Indomitable - NEVER FAILING - and ALL CONQUERING: ETERNAL!)

      DEDUCTING the above from the simple fact: That GOD EQUATES HIS WORD WITH HIMSELF!

        "In the Beginning was the WORD, and the WORD was with God, and the WORD was God, . . ." John 1:1 (and other Scriptures),

    Thus 'GOD'S WORD' can have NO LESSER STANDARD than that stated;


    "GOD'S WORD MUST" THEREFORE BE:

      AS TRUE IN history, archeology, geography, Earth science, medical science, nutrition, gerontology, agriculture, botany, astronomy, physics, chemistry, climatology, government, law, psychology, sociology - AND EVERY TOPIC IT TOUCHES - as in Theology, Divinity and Doctrine:

    And "IF IT BE NOT" - true in ALL subjects mentioned above; and And "IF IT BE NOT"

      Holy, Inspired, Inerrant, Infallible, Infinite, Invincible, Indestructible, Inexhaustible, Intrepid, Inalienable, Immutable, Implacable, Impossible-to-Improve: Indubitable and Indomitable in EVERY FIELD OF KNOWLEDGE:

    "THEN" . . . it cannot be ‘The Eternal and Incomparable Word’ of the Great Creator God!

God's Eternal Guarantee!
"Heaven and Earth Shall Pass Away;
But 'MY WORDS', SHALL NOT, PASS AWAY!"

    THE TOP-100;

    THE MOST DIFFICULT, SCRIPTURES, EXPLAINED;

    (All NewtonStein "INSPIRED-INERRANT" Bible View!)

    INTRO: THE TOP-100 CONTRADICTIONS in BIBLE, EXPLAINED!

      Intro to Bible Contradictions

      There are well over 100 "assumed and accused contradictions" in Scripture. None of them - however - have the slightest substance, to anyone with the following knowledge.

        >> Must have true knowledge of the Whole of Scriptures. (Most scientists at Harvard and Yale do NOT - SO THEY GROSSLY MISUNDERSTAND and MISINTERPRET the scientific "facts" they find!

        >> Must have some knowledge of Hebrew and Greek culture and language to know what the Bible is saying - for example - when Jesus said NOT to strain at gnats and swallow camels . . . He was NOT talking about "real gnats" and "real camels!"

        >> Must have some knowledge of true science. Here most ministers do NOT . . . and some of them make really stupid statements . . . such as "the Bible says the Earth is only 6,000 years old!"

          The Bible does NOT say Earth is only 6,000 years old and we'll give a $$million dollars$$ to anyone who can find such a Scripture.

          A Roman Catholic Priest back in the Dark Ages names "Ussher" believed in 6,000 years, and many Protestants accept this Catholic Doctrine.

          FACT! The Bible Jesus used teaches a completely different chronology, one that puts about 5,500 years from Adam to Jesus.

          The question is, how long was it before Adam sinned?

          How long was each "day" of Creation? How long is the "DAY of SALVATION" of which the New Testament says: "Today is the DAY of Salvation!" If salvation was only offered by God for 24 hours, then no one for the last 1975 years had a chance!

          The DAY of SALVATION is 2,000 years and counting!

          Let's look at the AMAZING FACTS as God gives them!

          SCIENTIFIC FACT! God is Creator and created all that there is Genesis and Isaiah clam this and true modern science PROVES God created all, as modern science can't even create ONE TINY SEED - much less anything more!

          SCRIPTURAL FACT! God claims for Himself: "I AM THE LORD GOD, I CHANGE NOT!

          SCRIPTURAL TRUTH! If God's claim is NEVER CHANGING is TRUE . . . THEN "IF" He was EVER A CREATOR-GOD, then He ALWAYS HAS BEEN a Creator GOD and ALWAYS WILL BE a Creator God!

          COMPARATIVE TRUTH! God always was, is and always will be Creator God just like God always has been, is and always will be HOLY, GOOD, JUST, KEEP HIS WORD, etc.

          QUESTION: Do you see how STUPID and UNSCRIPTURAL it is to say that God ALWAYS HAS BEEN - thus He lived for hundreds of thousands of millions and billions and trillions of eons of ages of generations of infinite spans of time. . .

          . . . in ABSOLUTE BLACKNESS, in ABSOLUTE SILENCE, in ABSOLUTE COLDNESS (490 degrees below freezing!), ABSOLUTELY ALONE, . . . SEEING nothing, HEARING nothing, PRESIDING over nothing, RULING nothing, WORSHIPED by nothing, PRAISED by nothing, . . . for hundreds of thousands of millions and billions and trillions of eons of ages . . .

          then to say GOD SUDDENLY HE CHANGED AFTER BILLIONS of BILLIONS of YEARS - THAT HE DIDN'T LIKE WHO HE WAS AS NON-CREATOR-GOD . . . and decided to CREATE EVERYTHING THERE IS IN A WEEK, some of which is as follows:

            >> Millions of kinds of insects - from bees to butterflies - and billions of billions of them;

            >> Millions of kinds of plants - with beautiful shapely, colorful seeds, petals, flowers and blossoms - and billions of billions of them;

            >> Millions of kinds of flowers millions of beautiful shapely, colorful seeds, petals, flowers, blossoms, and billions of billions of them in a MILLION SHADES OF COLOR;

            >> Millions of kinds of birds and billions of billions of them in a MILLION SHADES OF COLOR, ALL WITH A DIFFERENT DONG TO SING!;

            >> Millions of kinds of animals and billions of billions of them in a MILLION SHADES OF COLORS, TYPES, SIZES, TEXTURES, NATURES . . . all with DIFFERENT SOUNDS TO MAKE;

            >> Millions of kinds of fish and billions of billions of them in a MILLION SHADES OF COLORS;

            >> Millions of galaxies in millions of sizes and billions of billions of them in a MILLION KINDS of RADIATING WAVES;

            >> Millions of stars per galaxy in millions of sizes and billions of billions of them in a MILLION KINDS of RADIATING WAVES;

            >> Millions more of planets per all the stars and solar systems in millions of sizes and billions of billions of them in a MILLION KINDS of RADIATING WAVES;

            >> Millions more of moons with the planets per all the stars and solar systems in millions of sizes and billions of billions of them in a MILLION KINDS of RADIATING WAVES;

            >> Millions of planets per all the stars and solar systems in millions of sizes and billions of billions of them in a MILLION KINDS of RADIATING WAVES;

            >> Millions of asteroids per all the stars and solar systems in millions of sizes and billions of billions of them in a MILLION KINDS of RADIATING WAVES;

            >> Millions of comets per all the stars and solar systems in millions of sizes and billions of billions of them in a MILLION KINDS of RADIATING WAVES;

            >> AND YOU SURELY KNOW there is more to the nuclear-atomic "INNER-SPACE" than outer space . . .

          ***And then - ACCORDING TO MOST MINISTERS - God apparently didn't like being CREATOR GOD (even though HE SAID all that He made was good!) . . . so CREATOR GOD broke His word - CHANGED AGAIN - and became a NON-CREATOR GOD like He had been for millions of billions of years . . .

          . . . where He is supposed to remain to day: A NON-CREATOR GOD!

          SCIENTIFIC FACT! The truth is is Science tells us the UNIVERSE IS EXPANDING ON ALL SIDES as a tremendous rate - MUCH MORE than from Earth to Sun 100 times over - EVERY DAY!

          SCRIPTURAL FACT: If the critical preachers would just LET GOD SPEAK FOR HIMSELF . . . God tells us in His Word -

          FACT: Since God is an INFINITELY PROFOUND CREATOR GOD,. . . He always has been . . . and always will be BECAUSE HE CLAIMS FOR HIMSELF that HE IS THE CHANGING ONE!

          Compare God's Claim of "unchangableness' to you and me! We are the EATING-DRINKING-BREATHING ONES . . . we started the HOUR we were born and will do so all of our lives right up to the hour we die!

        Thus having good knowledge in each of these ares is REQUIRED to understand the Word of God in it's fullness and NO ONE HAS A PERFECT UNDERSTANDING!

        We all can learn from EACH OTHER . . . and we all can learn our WHOLE LIFE!

        The MORE WE LEARN, we advance to a higher level and go back through the Bible again seeing God is this DEEPER, FULLER, MORE COMPLEX and MORE WONDERFUL WAY!

        Scriptural and cultural knowledge of the languages and times the Scriptures were written.

        Remember! Part of Scripture was written almost 4,000 years ago, nearly 6,000 years if the writings of Enoch are included!

        It is amazing, how those who make accusations against Biblical Inerrancy, . . . actually produce great evidence of that Inspired Inerrancy, as Scripture itself declares that "natural man understandeth not the things of God."

          In most cases, it is not even a matter of not understanding spiritual truths, but of simply not reading carefully to see what a Scripture is actually saying, and being guilty . . . of "reading into a Scripture" one's own bias and misunderstanding . . . and Christians do this as well as atheists and agnostics!

          THAT'S WHY THERE'S HUNDREDS OF DENOMINATIONS!!!]

          Most of these "assumed contradictions" are not contradictions at all, but rather "possible discrepancies."

            >> For a true contradiction to exist - in any field of study - one statement has to say the opposite of another, or something that is mutually exclusive, to make it null and void.

            >> However, a "possible discrepancy" - meaning a statement needs looked into further - can exist, when two statements do not say the same thing, and do not support each other.


            EXAMPLE of a "possible discrepancy"

            Statement [A] - Today is a scorching hot, summer day, with burning, searing heat. I have never seen anything like it in my life! It is so hot, I literally can't breathe properly! I fear someone will today die from this heat!

            Statement [B] - Today is pretty much a typical summer day, perhaps a little windier than usual, but pretty much like a thousand other days.


            These two statements do NOT say the same thing, and do NOT necessarily support each other, but even though many would "assume" one statement contradicts the other, there is no contradiction here whatsoever: just a miss-reading of the situation, simply not knowing the facts, and assuming they are contradictory.

            EXPLANATION:

            This example is from a real life situation, in my own life.

            Explanation of Sentence [A]: I personally made this statement in my journal on the first day of working on a Church Missionary project doing heavy construction work in the Senora Desert, Mexico, in the summer.

            I had never been in a real desert before. To me - from Ohio (borders Canada!) - the Mexican Desert was so hot I couldn't breathe at 125-degrees . . . and I did fear someone would die from the heat that day! (maybe me!!!).

            I actually wondered if it were some kind of weather anomaly - a once-in-a-lifetime event . . . as I had simply never imagined it was ever that hot, anywhere! To me 105-degrees was as hot as I had ever experience or realistically imagined!


            Explanation of Sentence [B]: That afternoon I asked the person in charge of the project, born and raised in that desert, about the severity of the heat, who answered with a grin:

              "Anomaly? This is normal! This is a typical summer day, perhaps a little windier than usual, but pretty much like a thousand other days."

              Thank God for the wind or I would have died in that desert, much to the joy of atheists world-wide!


            So there you have it. No discrepancy whatsoever to the actual 'nature' of the day's climate, by two rational persons with no purposeful deception at all, but rather a vast difference in our personal weather experiences, perceptions and evaluations of the situation!

            This simple type of explanation alone will allow you to discern over half of the "apparent differences" in Scripture:

              >> Different writers emphasize different things, for example: men and women, young and old, rich and poor, kings and servants, prophets and scribes, these often are impacted by the same event in a different way.

              >> The same writer will emphasize different things at different times, for example: Apostle Paul recounts his conversion differently to:

                (a) fellow believers,

                (b) while in a court of law, by non-believers, but with religious in understanding,

                (c) in a pagan court of law, with non-believers with NO religious understanding.


              Each situation would both appreciate and understand different things, and would require different facts to be established, fro different reasons germane to their culture.

              No contradictions here!


              >> Keep in mind the Holy Scriptures were written by over a period of nearly 2,000 years, nearly 4,000 years ago, in two radically different major languages and cultures (with a some in Aramaic, that that both of the major languages so changed over time - Hebrew and Greek - that those who spoke their evolving dialects, could neither read nor understand the originals: hence both became - and are today - "dead languages".

              > > Keep in mind the Holy Scriptures are comprised of 66-80 books (depending on how divided), by 40-50 different writers of various backgrounds, living during a period of about 2,000 years (maybe 4,000 depending on Enoch) -

              - yet they present one, sustained, coherent message. Such a miracle can only be explained by there being one Divine Author, who was in control of all these human writers.

              The Bible writers came from many walks of life, including kings & common men; poets, & philosophers; fishermen & farmers; shepherds, statesmen, scholars, soldiers & scribes; peasant preachers, powerful priests & profound prophets; tax collectors, & tentmakers; rabbis & researchers, medical doctors and doctors of the law - all Jewish - with very possibly one female writer, Mary Magdalene for the fourth and "feminine version" of Christ's Gospel: the "Love gospel" the "Love writer"

              > > Perhaps most importantly, keep this in mind about the Holy Scriptures:The writings of the Bible belong to a great variety of literary types including history, law, poetry, educational discourses, parables, biography, personal correspondence, and prophecy. The same words - written in history, poetry, prophecy, or allegory - have profoundly different meanings.

              EXAMPLE: The word 'virgin' means as follows:

              - In Medicine, one who has not had sexual intercourse, male or females;

              - In Prophecy, one who has remained true in Worship to God;

              - In Poetry, one who was imagined to be young, innocent, fertile and desirable, probably female;

              - In Allegory, one who has maintained purity of cause and purpose, unadulterated, can be used of nations as well as individuals;

              - In Technicality, those who have literally not had sexual intercourse regardless of age;

              - In General, is used of "females much more than males", thus it can mean young girls in general.

              - In Cultural terms, it can be used to refer to the Old Maids - or all those not married - which in those days meant "still a virgin" - (not an accurate assumption to make in Ad-2,000 in any western nation!);

              - In History, and in Scripture, ALL of the above are used and the CONTEXT must be read to determine which is indicated!



              Bible difficulties, "possible discrepancies" and/or apparent contradictions, do exist in the Bible and we need to be aware of them and how to respond to them. The God-and-Christ haters often use Bible difficulties in their attempts to discredit Christianity.

              Many Ministers try to "hide" these difficult and/or disputed Scriptures from their people. We believe this is the wrong approach, because, when their people are "confronted by a bitter, angry and aggressive "god-Scoffer" the Christian will be "blind-sided", probably surprised by the possible discrepancy, . . .

              . . . and maybe even "stunned" by the "obvious error" in the Claimed-inerrant Holy Word of God.

              recommends that you become familiar with the Bible difficulties section as well as purchase New International Encyclopedia of Bible Difficulties. In the mean time, there are some things you need to know to be able to respond properly to the issue of Alleged Bible Difficulties.


            What is a true contradiction?
              A contradiction occurs when one statement makes another statement impossible when both statements deal with the same topic at the same time. For example, in my right pocket is a set of car keys. In my right pocket there is no set of car keys. Both statements cannot true at the same time. Therefore, to state that both were true is to state a contradiction

              If one gospel account says two people went to Jesus' tomb and another says that one went, it is not a contradiction because the accounts do not say that only one went or only two went. If one account said that only one went, then two could not have gone and that would be a contradiction.

              An Academia Oft-Accused Contradiction:

              One of the most common accounts used as a contradiction is how did Judas die,

                - by hanging?
                - or falling down?

                By hanging says Matthew 27:3-8 - "Then when Judas, who had betrayed Him, saw that He had been condemned, he felt remorse and returned the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders, saying, "I have sinned by betraying innocent blood." But they said, "What is that to us? See to that yourself!"

                And he threw the pieces of silver into the sanctuary and departed; and he went away and hanged himself. And the chief priests took the pieces of silver and said, "It is not lawful to put them into the temple treasury, since it is the price of blood." And they counseled together and with the money bought the Potter’s Field as a burial place for strangers. For this reason that field has been called the Field of Blood to this day."

                By falling says Luke in Acts 1:16-19 - "Brethren, the Scripture had to be fulfilled, which the Holy Spirit foretold by the mouth of David concerning Judas, who became a guide to those who arrested Jesus. "For he was counted among us, and received his portion in this ministry."

                Now this man acquired a field with the price of his wickedness; and falling headlong, he burst open in the middle and all his bowels gushed out. And it became known to all who were living in Jerusalem; so that in their own language that field was called Akeldama, that is, Field of Blood."

                There is no contradiction here, as neither statement excludes or contradicts the other. In fact, both are literally true.

                FACT: Judas 'died' by hanging at his own hand, and in all likelihood, was dead in a few moments after the hanging.

                FACT: When it was know what Judas had done in betraying the Christ for the price of a common slave - turning his back on the man whom he claimed was the Messiah and for whom he had been the treasurer, then in great remorse took the money and simply threw it at the leaders in the temple;

                Judas was considered a 'cursed man" - vile and unclean - no one wanted to be associated with him in any fashion, and the men of the Temple wouldn't even put his money in the Temple Treasury!

                Thus no one claimed his body or gave him a decent burial, and the place where he had handed himself became "defiled" and a desolate place to be avoided. The dead body of Judas hung there for days - swollen in decay historical writers say - grotesque and detestable. Eventually, the body broke loose under its own weight, and fell to the ground bursting in a morbid mess, left for the beasts of the earth to decide it's finality.

                Do you really think anyone wanted to do anything with the plot of ground of such a person, with the crime against the Christ, the suicide and putrid contamination? There is no such thing as "haunted ground" - though many so believe there is - but if there ever were to be a place where one should avoid, this would be it: ground made sinful by the stench of Juds' decayed corpse!

                Even in the modern world of 21st century, when a gunman kills many innocent people in a McDonald's restaurant, the only thing to do is tear down a perfectly fine establishment worth millions and make a small memorial to the innocent, as people would refuse to patronize such a morbid place to get their children a "Happy Meal".


                So was the dilemma of the final resting place of Judas Iscariot.

                  > The "Judas silver" couldn't be put into the temple treasury;

                  > No one would give Judas a proper burial or sepulcher (quire expensive, hand-dug from pure stone!

                  > No one wanted the plot of ground with his blood remains;

                  > The owner had been deprived of lawfully owned property, unjustly.


                Someone solved the dilemma as follows: Simple take the silver and give it to the person who lost the plot of ground unjustly, name the contaminated plot "Akeldema - Field of Blood" and let it be as Babylon: forever desolate and forsaken. And so it was.

                Please note that Matt 27:3-8 tells us specifically how Judas died, by hanging. Also note that Acts 1:16-19 merely tells us of an event that happened regarding his death, that he fell headlong and his bowels gushed out. Acts does not tell us that this falling and bursting was the cause of his death, where Matthew does indicate Judas took his own life by hanging.

                Commentary:

                *First, remember the difference in my statement as a visitor from the north-land versus the man who was born and raised in the Mexican Desert!

                Matthew writing first and primarily to the Jews, emphasized the sin of Judas, his remorse, his suicide and the keeping of proper Jewish Law in not putting the price of blood in the Temple Treasury.

                Luke writing last (See Luke 1:1-4) and primarily to the Gentile world, doesn't mention at all the keeping of Jewish Law, but rather emphasized the gross drama of the event - the "final situation" of the great sin of the betrayal of Christ by one of His own: Judas.

                Thus Luke imprints the memories of all ages - not just with a man hanging, fully-clothed and intact, perhaps in his best clothes, hair combed and in jewelry, perhaps the picture of life and health . . .

                . . . but rather the gross crime-scene of the evil 'Son of Perdition' - his body bursted from falling from the hanging rope, his bowels and entrails splashed all over the place, sickening and disgusting with maggots and skin-worms crawling everywhere, encapsulated with the indescribable stench of rotting human flesh:

                  - with none to rescue and bury properly,

                  - with none to visit his final resting place in tears,

                  - with none to care for his lost soul!


                This was the projection of Luke . . . not just the singular act at the moment of his death, but a picture of his egregious end for eternity - of 'he who betrayed the High and Holy One!'

                Surely the distinction is easily and simply understood, and there is not even the slightest hint of contradiction in these accounts of Judas last days! Yet this is a "great weapon" of those who "claim" the Holy Inspired, Inerrant word of God . . . "has contradictions" which the simple minded cannot discern!

                Thus when dealing with opponents who site biblical difficulties, you must always challenge them to look at the verses in context. Very often, the problems disappear when doing this, easily and simply.

                ===

                Another greatly accused set of contradiction is the seemingly 10 different accounts of the Resurrection events and appearances of Jesus to His Disciples: yet it is amazingly simply . . . if one will read it . . .while thinking!

                The 101 Assumed Contradictions

                1. Who incited David to count the fighting men of Israel?

                  (a) God did (2 Samuel 24: 1)

                  (b) Satan did (I Chronicles 2 1:1)


                  NewtonStein Answer: God does many things by instigating satan. Just like the devil "whispers" to the mind of stupid humans to get them to do his bidding . . . satan whispers is such a stooge, he doesn't know when God is moving him to do a thing: thus it could be said either way correctly, provided people understand how satan works:

                  > > God instigated satan, using him as a stooge,

                  > > Satan did his bidding, wanting to speak to David's pride and power.


                  2. In that count how many fighting men were found in Israel?

                  (a) Eight hundred thousand (2 Samuel 24:9)

                  (b) One million, one hundred thousand (I Chronicles 21:5)
                  NewtonStein Answer: The 800,000 does not include the tribes of Judah and Benjamin with 300,000 men as part of Israel, as Judah and Israel were as two-parts of a whole - with open hostility - and soon went to civil war, divided and were never re-joined again.


                  3. How many fighting men were found in Judah?

                  (a) Five hundred thousand (2 Samuel 24:9)

                  (b) Four hundred and seventy thousand (I Chronicles 21:5)


                  NewtonStein Answer: A quibble of "numbers only" - smudged dots on aged, copied and re-copied animal skins: no truth, no doctrine, no teaching, no issue at all!


                  4. God sent his prophet to threaten David with how many years of famine?

                  (a) Seven (2 Samuel 24:13)

                  (b) Three (I Chronicles 21:12)


                  NewtonStein Answer: Different words are used for the 3 and 7. Three years were used of the actual famine, while the 7-years term was the length of the effect to return to full prosperity, just like market crash of 1929, housing bubble of 2009, etc.


                  5. How old was Ahaziah when he began to rule over Jerusalem?

                  (a) Twenty-two (2 Kings 8:26)

                  (b) Forty-two (2 Chronicles 22:2)


                  NewtonStein Answer:A quibble of "numbers only" - smudged dots on aged, copied and re-copied animal skins: no truth, no doctrine, no teaching, no issue at all!


                  6. How old was Jehoiachin when he became king of Jerusalem?

                  (a) Eighteen (2 Kings 24:8)

                  (b) Eight (2 Chronicles 36:9)


                  NewtonStein Answer:A quibble of "numbers only" - smudged dots on aged, copied and re-copied animal skins: no truth, no doctrine, no teaching, no issue at all!


                  7. How long did he rule over Jerusalem?

                  (a) Three months (2 Kings 24:8)

                  (b) Three months and ten days (2 Chronicles 36:9)


                  NewtonStein Answer:A quibble of "numbers only" - smudged dots on aged, copied and re-copied animal skins: no truth, no doctrine, no teaching, no issue at all!

                  8. The chief of the mighty men of David lifted up his spear and killed how many men at one time?

                  (a) Eight hundred (2 Samuel 23:8)

                  (b) Three hundred (I Chronicles 11:11)

                  NewtonStein Answer:A quibble of "numbers only" - smudged dots on aged, copied and re-copied animal skins: no truth, no doctrine, no teaching, no issue at all!


                  9. When did David bring the Ark of the Covenant to Jerusalem? Before defeating the Philistines or after?

                  (a) After (2 Samuel 5 and 6)

                  (b) Before (I Chronicles 13 and 14)


                  NewtonStein Answer: The two authors described "different scenarios". Victory had been won before, allowing David to bring Ark to Jerusalem, but the peace had not been established, just as in Iraq with modern USA.


                  10. How many pairs of clean animals did God tell Noah to take into the Ark?

                  (a) Two (Genesis 6:19, 20)

                  (b) Seven (Genesis 7:2).

                  NewtonStein Answer: Seven! Read it again Carefully!

                  Gen 7:2 Of every clean beast thou shalt take to thee by sevens, the male and his female: and of beasts that are not clean by two, the male and his female.


                  11. When David defeated the King of Zobah, how many horsemen did he capture?

                  (a) One thousand and seven hundred (2 Samuel 8:4)

                  (b) Seven thousand (I Chronicles 18:4)

                  NewtonStein Answer:A quibble of "numbers only" - smudged dots on aged, copied and re-copied animal skins: no truth, no doctrine, no teaching, no issue at all!


                  12. How many stalls for horses did Solomon have?

                  (a) Forty thousand (I Kings 4:26)

                  (b) Amaziah (2 Chronicles 26:1)

                  NewtonStein Answer: In genealogies, the word Father does NOT mean "the exact man who donated one's sperm, but rather someone in one's ancestry." I am an American but NONE of the Founding Father's of America were my sperm donors.

                  The Hebrew language doesn't even have a word for grandfather, so Dad, Granddad, Great-Granddad, are all the same word, with exact discernment by people who "needed" to know the situation! Your family knows whether your reference is to your Dad, Granddad, or Great-Granddad - others usually don't need to know.

                  (b) But a careful count of the generations reveals only thirteen (see Matthew 1:12-16)

                  34. Was John the Baptist Elijah who was to come?

                  (a) Yes (Matthew II: 14, 17:10-13)

                  (b) No (John 1:19-21)


                  NewtonStein Answer: John the Baptist himself is the one who answered in John 1, that he was not Elijah! Jesus is the one who said John did fulfill the prophet who said "one would come in the spirit and power of Elijah.

                  The critics missed it, but the Angel who talked to John the Baptist's father, Zacharias, also said his son John (the Baptist) would 'go forth in the spirit and power of Elijah'. (Luke 1)

                  However, it was not necessary at all for John to know he was the fulfillment of the "prophet of the Spirit and power of Elijah" any more than most people of history:

                  Had anyone asked Lincoln if he were the greatest U.S. President ever, he surely would have said no. Others, however, designate him the greatest in vast numbers. Likewise John The Baptist would have never had the audacity to claim that "He" was the fulfillment of the great prophet Elijah, even if only in Spirit and power.

                  A real-life example, is that the whole nation called George Washington the "Father of Our Country", the new and fledgling nation. Washington, however - an uneducated military man - in no way saw himself this way.

                  To the contrary, Washington publicly addressed U.S. President Henry Laurens (under the Articles of Confederation), a deeply committed Christian (a Huguenot)a great, great Patriot, whom Washington had served under; who had his own sons killed in the revolutionary war.

                  Laurens himself was captured by the British, taken to England and held hostage in the Tower of London, and treated very harshly, breaking his health and nearly killing him. He was released only after the USA captured the leading British General Cornwallis, whom they traded in exchange.

                  Laurens later helped negotiate the Peace Treaty in Paris, and was elected by his home state of South Carolina to serve at the US Constitutional Convention of 1787, which his health did not permit, and he died not long there after.

                  This was the man George Washington wanted to be designated the "Father of our Country" and so called him publicly. Thus the "apparent discrepancy" of Washing insisting he was not the Father of the USA, when the majority of others believed that hewas.

                  35. Would Jesus inherit David’s throne?

                  (a) Yes, so said the angel (Luke 1:32)

                  (b) No, since he is a descendant of Jehoiakim (see Matthew 1: I 1, I Chronicles 3:16). And Jehoiakim was cursed by God so that none of his descendants can sit upon David’s throne (Jeremiah 36:30)

                  NewtonStein Answer: Since Jesus was Virgin Born, he didn't have any of Joseph's genes or bloodline in him, but he did have Mary's. Thus Jesus did not inherit through Joseph and Jehoiakim in Matthew's genealogy, but through Mary's in Luke.

                  36. Jesus rode into Jerusalem on how many animals?(a) One - a colt (Mark 11:7; cf Luke 19:30-35). “And they brought the colt to Jesus and threw theirgarments on it; and he sat upon it.”

                  (b) Two - a colt and an ass (Matthew 21:7). “They brought the ass and the colt and put their garments on them and he sat thereon.”

                  NewtonStein Answer: They brought both beasts to Jesus, and He chose the young colt that had never been ridden, just like He had told them to get. This "riding the new-colt-that-had-never-been-ridden was a miracle in itself. If you don't think so, just try riding anything without a saddle . . . that has never been ridden before, simply showing Christ's great mastery over all things from weather to beasts.

                  Jesus instructed them to get the "unridden colt" in Mark:

                  Mark 11:2 And saith unto them, Go your way into the village over against you: and as soon as ye be entered into it, ye shall find a colt tied, whereon never man sat; loose him, and bring him.


                  And again in Luke:

                  Luke 19:30 Saying, Go ye into the village over against you; in the which at your entering ye shall find a colt tied, whereon yet never man sat: loose him, and bring him hither.


                  Scripture is always honest about the faults of men from Adam's sin, to Noah's drunkenness, to Job's fear, to Abraham's lying, to David and Bathsheba, to Peter's denial, and much more.

                  Jesus told them specifically to get the colt that had never been ridden. However, the disciples seeing how frisky it was and the mother tied beside it, brought them both, and prepared them both, laying their garments on each one in preparation for either to be ridden.

                  Peter, being much older than Jesus, had thought he knew more than Jesus on various occasions, and no doubt advised Jesus to "take the older donkey" perhaps trying to explain to Jesus why He could not ride a wild, young colt that had never been ridden - just like he explained to Jesus why they couldn't catch any fish (just before their nets were so full they burst!)

                  Jesus, however, chose the colt - just like he asked for - and the whole event fulfilled the prophet who foretold Jesus coming into town with both the mother and the colt!

                  Amazing!

                  37. How did Simon Peter find out that Jesus was the Christ?

                  (a) By a revelation from heaven (Matthew 16:17)

                  (b) His brother Andrew told him (John 1:41)

                  NewtonStein Answer: Younger brother Andrew assumed and believed Jesus was the Christ from the first day. However, Andrew being perhaps still a teen-ager - and Peter, possible age 40, was sure not to have believed the "kid-brother".

                  Peter being older, harder, a self-employed fishermen, was skeptical and rebuked Jesus on several occasions: on where to fish, on not wanting to do as Jesus said, on not wanting Jesus to do what He said He was supposed to do, obviously not thinking Jesus was the Christ, and several other situations.

                  Over time, however, Peter became convinced Jesus was indeed the Promised Messiah, the Eternal Saviour, The Son of God . . . not because of what Andrew, Judas, or anyone else may have thought - but because of what was revealed to his own hard, stubborn and skeptical heart over time.

                  Thus Peter truly believed when it was confirmed to his heart by the Spirit of God - NOT by kid-brother Andrew's wild speculation of Jesus being the Christ - which he had thought about John the Baptist . . . just 6-months before!

                  38. Where did Jesus first meet Simon Peter and Andrew?

                  (a) By the Sea of Galilee (Matthew 4:18-22)

                  (b) On the banks of river Jordan (John 1:42). After that, Jesus decided to go to Galilee (John 1:43)

                  NewtonStein Answer: Jesus met them in John 1, on the banks of the Jordan. After getting acquainted and spending hundreds of hours together, when Jesus was later ready to go on an Ministry Campaign, he went to where they were working as fishermen - at the Sea of Galilee in Matthew 4, and simply informed them the time had come to go public!


                  39. When Jesus met Jairus was Jairus’ daughter already dead?

                  (a) Yes. Matthew 9:18 quotes him as saying, “My daughter has just died.”

                  (b) No. Mark 5:23 quotes him as saying, “My little daughter is at the point of death.”

                  NewtonStein Answer: The healing in Matthew is NOT the daughter of Jairus. The critics simply assume this. Thus the two incidents were not the same. In Matthew, the daughter was already dead, and Jairus's daughter in Mark and Luke, she was st the point of Death, when her father came for Jesus.

                  (b) No (Matthew 10:9; Luke 9:3)

                  NewtonStein Answer: For the whole 3 years they accompanied Jesus and He went in and out among them, yes. Just on the one occasion of sending them "on a specific mission by themselves" without Jesus, did He command they not take staffs, script, etc.

                  41. Did Herod think that Jesus was John the Baptist?

                  (a) No (Luke 9:9) Earlier in Ministry

                  (b) Yes (Matthew 14:2; Mark 6:16) Later in Ministry

                  NewtonStein Answer: Note the Chapter numbers.

                  Early on, Herod did not think Jesus was John raised from the dead. (Luke 8) However, as time wore on and his conscience began to bother him more and more - as some people eventually go insane with guilt - Herod became convinced that Jesus was John whom he had beheaded, come back form the dead to haunt him.

                  42. Did John the Baptist recognize Jesus before his baptism?

                  (a) Yes (Matthew 3:13-14)

                  (b) No (John 1:32,33)

                  NewtonStein Answer: This - as almost all accusations - is so simple. Of course John knew Jesus as a person, as they were cousins! Their mothers were close friends and kin. However, they lived a week's journey apart, so were not like next-door-neighbors, and saw each other very seldom (how often do you see people who live a "week's travel" away from you!)

                  However, John "knew Jesus not as the Christ, the Son of God" . . .until the Spirit descended upon him at baptism, and he heard the voice from heaven affirming Jesus as the Christ. Until that time, He was simply "Jesus, a distant relative, a very fine fellow and sure to be a good rabbi someday . . . but that thought of Jesus being "The Christ" probably never entered mind!

                  [Example: When your sister, friend or daughter got pregnant, was your first thought: "Gee! I wonder if this is another "Virgin Birth!"]

                  John no doubt knew there was always something "a little different" about Jesus, though not enough to arouse suspicion in people, as Jesus functioned just fine as a carpenter for nearly two decades.

                  However, when John the Baptist saw Jesus coming toward Him, he didn't resist the overture, followed the Spirit of God leading him and exclaimed what he sensed at that moment: "Behold! The Lamb of God which taketh away the sin of the World!"

                  (b) No (Matthew 11:2)


                  NewtonStein Answer: So simple! See previous answer first.

                  Many are puzzled by whey John sent his disciples to questions Jesus, but shouldn't be at all! It is very, very simple, if you will think-through the situation for yourself.

                  44. According to the Gospel of John, what did Jesus say about bearing his own witness?

                  (a) “If I bear witness to myself, my testimony is not true” (John 5:31)

                  (b) “Even if I do bear witness to myself, my testimony is true” (John 8:14)


                  NewtonStein Answer: Again, 'tis so simple.

                  Note first of all, the critics have interchanged the words "witness" and "testimony" and left out the real Bible word "record". Here is what the Bible really says:

                  (a) “If I bear 'witness' to myself, my 'witness' is not true” (John 5:31)

                  (b) “Even if I do bear 'record' to myself, my 'record' is true” (John 8:14)


                  In Jewish law, "one witness" was not enough to establish truth. Two or more witnesses were absolutely and always necessary: "Let every word be established by the mouth of two or three witnesses" God's Law required.

                  Thus the 'witness' of Jesus alone for Himself was not enough to establish truth, or be valid modern court would say.

                  However, the 'record' - that which one declares about a situation, "for the record" (like in a resume, not a court witness) that Jesus did declare was true, even though it could NOT be corroborated by another 'witness' to establish it as truth;

                  Why was there no other witness? BECAUSE there was no one else who had been "in Heaven" to 'witness' that He had been alive before in Heaven, and came down from His Father in Heaven, etc. Note that God did provide for believers a "voice from Heaven on several occasions - from baptism to transfiguration to the cross.

                  Finally, there were angels as witness at the resurrection and the ascension. There were also angels at the temptation in the wilderness with none to see except the Tempter: satan, who already knew Jesus was the Son of God.

                  Thus for every person in the world today, the "second witness" for each of us, is the Spirit of God bearing witness to our heart, whereby we cry, "Abba, father!"

                  48. What did Jesus say about Peter’s denial?

                  (a) “The cock will not crow till you have denied me three times” (John 13:38).

                  (b) “Before the cock crows twice you will deny me three times” (Mark 14:30). When the cock crowed once, the three denials were not yet complete (see Mark 14:72). Therefore prediction (a) failed.

                  NewtonStein Answer: Amazingly Simple. Term (a) for crowing is a term of completion of crows - including all the crowing - not a term of beginning to crow. No Rooster crows just one crow. Jesus said before the cock is done crowing, you will have denied me.

                  Matthew, the Gospel to the educated Jewish hierarchy, was written in scholarly Hebrew and thus records His identity in Hebrew.

                  Mark, is the Gospel to the Romans, and records His identity in the Legal language of the Roman Court: Latin.

                  Luke, a Physician among the Greeks in Greece, writes his gospel in Greek and for the Greeks, and records His identity in Greek.

                  John, writing the most intimate version for the common Jewish people, wrote in Aramaic, the common language of the Jewish people and thus records His identity in Aramaic.

                  Note here that the two foreign language accounts do not need his name of Jesus, just that he was King of the Jews. That was capital offense enough against the Caesar of Rome.

                  The two Jewish languages, however, record who the man was claiming to be their King - Jesus - and John writing for the common people of the Galilean region, of whom the Bible admits were unlearned and ignorant disciples, makes it clear Jesus was from Nazareth in Galilee.

                  87. When did Mary Magdelene first meet the resurrected Jesus? And how did she react?(a) Mary and the other women met Jesus on their way back from their first and only visit to the tomb.They took hold of his feet and worshipped him (Matthew 28:9)

                  (b) On her second visit to the tomb Mary met Jesus just outside the tomb. When she saw Jesus she did not recognize him. She mistook him for the gardener. She still thinks that Jesus’ body is laid to rest somewhere and she demands to know where. But when Jesus said her name she at once recognized him and called him “Teacher.” Jesus said to her, “Do not hold me...” (John 20:11 to 17)

                  89. When did the disciples return to Galilee?(a) Immediately, because when they saw Jesus in Galilee “some doubted” (Matthew 28:17). This period of uncertainty should not persist

                  (b) After at least 40 days. That evening the disciples were still in Jerusalem (Luke 24:3 3). Jesus appeared to them there and told them, stay in the city until you are clothed with power from on high”(Luke 24:49). He was appearing to them “during forty days” (Acts 1:3), and “charged them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the promise ... “(Acts 1:4)

                  (a) Yes. “The word of the Lord came to Samuel: “I repent that I have made Saul King...” (I Samuel 15:10 to 11)(b) No. God “will not lie or repent; for he is not a man, that he should repent” (I Samuel 15:29)(c) Yes. “And the Lord repented that he had made Saul King over Israel” (I Samuel 15:35). Notice thatthe above three quotes are all from the same chapter of the same book! In addition, the Bible shows that

                  God repented on several other occasions:i. “The Lord was sorry that he made man” (Genesis 6:6)“I am sorry that I have made them” (Genesis 6:7)ii. “And the Lord repented of the evil which he thought to do to his people” (Exodus 32:14).iii. (Lots of other such references).

                  (b) No. True Christians cannot possibly sin, because they are the children of God. “Every one whobelieves that Jesus is the Christ is a child of God. (I John 5:1). “We should be called children of God; andso we are” (I John 3: 1). “He who loves is born of God” (I John 4:7). “No one born of God commits sin; for God’s nature abides in him, and he cannot sin because he is born of God” (I John 3:9). But, then again, Yes! “If we say we have no sin we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us” (I John 1:8)

                God "Stretches-Out" The Heavens:

                  [1] Job 9:8 - Which alone spreadeth out the heavens, and treadeth upon the waves of the sea.

                  [NOTE: There is no mention of "creation, created, creating", etc.]

                  [2] Job 26:7 - He stretcheth (NOT stretched out) out the north over the empty place, and hangeth (also present tense) the earth upon nothing.

                  [3] Psalm 104:2 - Who coverest thyself with light as with a garment: who stretchest (NOT stretched) out the heavens like a curtain:

                The above Scriptures are all from the King James:


                The Scriptures below are from the Young's Literal Translation. This old version is NOT as "smooth to read" - but one of the greatest traits of the Young's version is the accurate verb tense.

                Robert Young was obsessed with Scriptural accuracy, and a major factor in this spiritual obsession was CORRECT VERB TENSE!

                As you might suspect, many times a "continuous verb tense" is used in Hebrew and Greek BECAUSE God Almighty is an ETERNAL GOD who refers to Himself in THE ETERNAL NOW as The GREAT I AM!

                Literally hundreds of these are made "past tense" in the King James and other common versions.

                Young's Literal Translation

                [7] Isaiah 42:5 - Thus said God, Jehovah, preparing the heavens, and stretching them out,

                [NOTE: There is no mention of "creation, created, creating", etc.]


                Young's Literal Translation

                [8] Isaiah 51:13 - And thou dost forget Jehovah thy maker, Who is stretching out the heavens, and founding earth, And thou dost fear continually all the day, Because of the fury of the oppressor, As he hath prepared to destroy. And where is the fury of the oppressor?

                [NOTE: There is no mention of "creation, created, creating", etc.]


                NIV (1984)

                [9] Job 37:18 - Can you join him in spreading out the skies,...?

                [NOTE: There is no mention of "creation, created, creating", etc.]

                [10] Genesis 1:3 - And God said: "Let there be Light!"

                Again, this command in Young's Literal Translation with the PROPER VERB TENSE reads as follows:

                "And God saith, 'Let light be;' and light is.

                [SOURCE: http://bible.cc/genesis/1-3.htm ].


              What Genesis 1:3 means is that God commanded "Light be!" and Light became! "Light" took off north, south, east, west, up, down - in every conceivable direction (just like when you turn on a light bulb) . . .

              . . . obviously going at the "speed of light" which EXCEEDS 186,272 miles per second!

              . . . That is fastest enough to go around the whole world OVER seven-times in one second!

              . . . It travels the 93,000,000 miles from Sun to Earth in 8 minutes!


              READ YOUR BIBLE CAREFULLY!

              Did God ever call for Light to STOP radiating outward?

              Did God ever say: "Light, stop!"?

              Did God ever say: "Light stay as you are, go no further!"?

              The answers are "No, no, and no!"

              Therefore, the simple fact of the matter is, the universe HAS been expanding in ALL DIRECTIONS . . . at the SPEED of LIGHT . . . since the SECOND GOD SAID "Let there be light!" and it will continue to do so until God STOPS IT - if He ever does. He may well not!

              The universe was expanding in 1900 when everyone thought it was standing still, it is expanding today - and scientist continually quibble about how fast the "mass" - that is Suns, and Galaxies - are traveling outward in all directions.

              If the threat of Bible-based science becomes TOO POWERFUL in the future, some atheist science organization may decide to "say" "the Universe has stopped expanding" . . . just so kids will have a Bible that says one thing and a science book that has another!

              Either way, The Universe expands, and Scripture supports it from the First Creation Command in Genesis 1:3 to 9-confirmations of it expanding, . . . and several accounts below of the initial "INFLATION" of the Big Bang whereby God's Words says it WAS STRETCHED - PAST TENSE . . .

              . . . over, done, complete, and this is ALWAYS used with the term create, created, creation, etc, referencing to that early time in Creation.

              FACT! The Word of God is AMAZINGLY ACCURATE! Therefore we are to STUDY the Heavens as God commands as they reveal knowledge, and the more we KNOW, the more God's Word in confirmed to us . . .

              . . . and one day God's Word will COVER THE EARTH like the waters cover the seas!



              In addition to the ten references of a present tense, continual "stretching" of the universe, there are also several references to a completed, finished, fully stretched-out universe.

              The worldly scholars "scoff" and call these contradictions.

              Since there are nearly 15 references in all, its not like some error made once, or that "God forgot" what He said.

              So what gives?


              Note first of all that what modern scientists mockingly call The Big Bang" - was nothing more, or less - than God saying:"Let there be Light!"

              SCIENTIFIC FACT-1: IN the original creation of the universe, there was an event modern scientists call "inflation" when the evidence indicates the whole universe was "stretched" (inflated) very rapidly - so rapid that it even exceeded the current speed of light - in a short period of time.

              SCIENTIFIC FACT-2: Once the universe was functioning as Go desired, He has continued to "stretch" the Universe and continue creating, as He is our Great Creator God!

              SCRIPTURAL FACT-1: All of the times the Bible says "stretched" past tense, complete, there is a statement of creation or establishing the Earth.

              SCRIPTURAL FACT-2: All of the times the Bible says "stretching, stretcheth" present tense, ONGOING, there is not a single use of the words create-creation.

              FACT! How amazingly accurate is the Word of God!


              [1] Ezekiel 1:22 - And the likeness of the firmament upon the heads of the living creature was as the colour of the terrible crystal, stretched forth over their heads above. - Ezekiel 1:22

              Please see that this reference is to scene in "Heaven" and doesn't really relate to that of Earth.


              [2] Isaiah 42:5 - Thus saith God the LORD, he that created the heavens, and stretched them out;

              [NOTE: See the obvious time of "creation, created, creation", establishing the Earth, etc.]


              [3] Isaiah 45:12 - I have made the earth, and created man upon it: I, even my hands, have stretched out the heavens, and all their host have I commanded.

              [NOTE: See the obvious time of "creation, created, creating", establishing the Earth, etc.]


              [4] Jeremiah 10:12 - He hath made the earth by his power, he hath established the world by his wisdom, and hath stretched out the heavens by his discretion.

              [NOTE: See the obvious time of "creation, created, creating", establishing the Earth, etc.]


              [5] Jeremiah 51:15 - He hath made the earth by his power, he hath established the world by his wisdom, and hath stretched out the heaven by his understanding.

                Obviously, all phases of Christianity do not agree doctrinally or politically and sometimes even disagree on the actual facts concerning a particular scripture, fact, leader, nation or situation, hence there are well over 10,000 denominations extant.

                  (THAT'S WHY JESUS WARNED US AGAINST GNAT STRAINING!!!)

                We neither claim nor present ourselves as having perfect knowledge in all things. Thus views and articles posted on this website are those of their authors – who often insist their identities, denominational, and/or doctrinal persuasion be made known for various reasons – offered to you as wise people of God - Christian Patriots, whatever your nation - to discern for your own judgement and edification.

                Thus we trust, hope and pray, that ALL BELIEVERS who look to the Lord Jesus ONLY, to the Word of God ONLY, to "His will (ONLY!) being done on this Earth AS IN HEAVEN"

                In the NAME of Jesus Christ Our Lord and Saviour:
