If God wrote the Bible or inspired the Bible, could God be responsible for making any mistakes that need to be corrected inside of the Bible? If I was the most intelligent entity ever (God) and had the ability to create something out of nothing like our planet, I should be able to write a flawless instruction manual like the Bible.
Here's to Bible verses that I would like you to take a look at, but read them with an open mind. If these weren't Bible verses and just sentences in another book, could these actually be considered literal contradictions?
Genesis 32:30 (King James Version) And Jacob called the name of the place Peniel: for I have seen God face to face, and my life is preserved.
John 1:18 (King James Version) No man hath seen God at any time, the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.
The first statement says that Jacob seen God face-to-face, while the second Bible verse says that no man has seen God. It just doesn't stop there. The second Bible verse says that no man has seen God at any time.
Let's just say that God put these Bible verses in there too irritate people like myself, atheists, agnostics and even some doubting Christians. What's the meaning behind it and why would the Christian God deliberately try to confuse any Christians who are trying to understand the true meaning of Christianity.
I would love to hear some of your comments about these Bible verses and why or why not you would think that they were or weren't a contradiction.
