    Stan,

    re: "Really.... I have to explain that to you?"
     
    Apparently you do. Are you saying that 2 different generations were being referred to by the Messiah - an evil one and one that wasn't? That the evil one would be given a sign but that the other one wouldn't be given a sign?

    I, and apparently you, have no idea what you are talking about now.
    First, kindly explain how the 2 verses you supplied in post 109, contradict on another, and
    Secondly, please use the tools provided by the webmaster when quoting and addressing my posts.

    re: " ...explain how the 2 verses you supplied in post 109, contradict on another..."
     
    Be happy to; the one verse says there IS a sign and the other verse says there ISN"T.

    Two different occasions, and ONE says NO sign and the other says NO sign ACCEPT. Not understanding the different figure of speach is NOT a contradiction.

    re: " ONE says NO sign and the other says NO sign ACCEPT. Not understanding the different figure of speach is NOT a contradiction."

    Which one is the figure of speech, i.e. not literally meaning what it says, and how do you know?

    I didn't say it didn't mean what it says. One omits the Jonah part while the other one, and Matthew 12:39 include it. the figure of speech or type of saying is NO, ACCEPT. This is not a contradiction, it is an omission.

    Stan,

    Now I know you’re just messin’ with me. You can’t possibly be serious by thinking that you can simply add words to scripture to support your preconceived notion that there are no contradictions in that scripture.

    I didn't ADD anything. You asserted the two verses were contradictions and I explained to you how they aren't.

    I believe if you count the number of saved folk mentioned by name in the N.T., you will find 153 names listed. It is just one of the many ways we can know Scriptural Inspiration.

    I think it is because the moderators are secure with their beliefs about scripture, therefore, realize that allowing other opinions are not a threat. In fact, other opinions may actually inspire people to reference and read the Bible more often in search of truth

    i remain skeptical on wether or not you were joking. anyway, the post quoted above shows that i rustled your jimmies and you're mad enough to attack me viciousley.
    so answer my question, do you believe there are contradictions in the Bible?

    well i'm secure with my beliefs about scripture. in any subject where i'm not sure of my beliefs on a matter, i don't react this way. your post above shows your blindness to the war raging around us. there is a war against truth and it is a threat.

    I don't think this is an offence based on the ToS.

    oh and it's not a matter of opinion. it's a matter of truth of God vs lies of Satan.

    only good response i've had on this. well carry on.

    why does the truth offend
    if the inconsistancies posted (which this thread pertains to) are not valid, then one should be knowledgable enough to intelligently rebuke them
    none are so blind as he who WILL NOT see.

    interesting you would speak about the truth offending. how about when the truth of the infalible word of God offends someone so they try to disprove it by showing alleged "contradictions." hit close to home sniper?
