Bible Contradiction: Mark, Acts, and the Unforgivable Sin

Bible Study: Luke 14:33 and the Absurd Command

I’ve seen some confusion among skeptical circles concerning a strange command in Luke 14:33. Does Jesus tell us to sell all our possessions? If the disciples didn’t sell all they had, were they not taking Jesus’s words seriously?

In part one of my look at Christian rock, I examined four common arguments opposed to it and found there to be a lack of any serious prohibition. In this article, I’ll take a look at a position that seems to turn the above findings on its head. If the Bible is silent on music does that mean it prohibits it?

Does Exodus 21:22-25 Support Abortion?

Marilyn Adamson is a former atheist currently working with Campus Crusade for Christ. She directs print media campaigns aimed at college students. Adamson, however, explains how evidence and arguments, and a sequence of discussions she would have with one close friend, led her to belief in God and Christianity (1). After some time of having been in debate with her friend she began to find that it was difficult to refute some of the continuously answered prayers that her friend seemed to receive. This would open the door for Adamson to begin considering several lines of objective evidence that she would discover pointed to the existence of God (2).

At the start Adamson felt that belief in God was primarily constructed upon wishful thinking that existed in the absence of any objective evidence, “It was like learning the truth about Santa Claus. It seemed obvious that God was completely…

Those who are not with Jesus are against him.

He who is not with Me is against Me; and he who does not gather with Me, scatters.” Luke 11:23

Those who are not against Jesus are for him.

for he who is not against you is for you.” Luke 9:50

I think when we examine the passage carefully this will be shown to be not a contradiction.  Let’s take a closer look:
