There is no such thing. The Bible does not truly contradict, if it does we have two culprits to blame.....Satan or us. It is just that simple. God is not the author of confusion, it is us that are not understanding what is being said.
Actually, it was very encouraging to me what I am reading from others in this thread, Constance I am just going to put a thumbs up to you in my siggy! eek!
Dave, I recently came to this realization even with my trusty KJV!!
It is great to have study tools, even I refer to many different versions of the Bible for a broader explanation or understanding of definition. (Lexicon / Concordance) But ultimately I pray. But trying and testing EVERYTHING you hear with prayer and study is KEY. If something sounds wrong, even if it is something you have believed for years, investigate through prayer and thorough study. Asking questions again is good but try and test everything against scripture, never just take others word for it. Ask for scripture to be shown and seek out the alternative. IMVHO
