Dear Gnarley,<br><blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr>[color:"blue"]there are no "apparent" ones</font><hr></blockquote><p><br>No, I didn't write that there are no apparent contradictions. I wrote that it is insane to believe, even apparent, contradictions. What we are called to do is reconcile the apparent contradiction, knowing that the Bible contains NO contradictions, to the best of our ability. Due to the noetic effects of sin, however, we very frequently fail in our endeavors at reconciling the scriptural information that appears to be contradictory.<br><br>Blessings,<br>LEJ
