  • IMO the Bible has been written and rewritten so many times by so many different people it has lost some of it's original teachings.

  • Different strokes for different folks. Some church goers can relate to the old testament more. Don't call it craziness, that's a dangerous move. lol. Besides, the bible is full of stories from different ppl, it may contradict itself because no two stories are exactly the same when they come from two totally different ppl. I learned that in bible study.It does not contradict itself, ppl's stories just don't always match.

  • I agree it has lost it's original teaching, but yes it does contradict itself. Do we kill, do we not kill the bible says yes and no. You must remember the bible was written by man. So I don't think most of it should even be paid attention to.

  • If you think NO other religion has "that craziness" then you need to pick up the Koran and read that for some truly weird contradictory stuff. it will BLOW your mind!
