Is the Bible consistent in its message?

There is an infographic that shows all of the supposed contradictions in the Bible.

Actually, here it is:

Now, some Christians will contend that these contradictions need to be fit together with context.  Let’s say that they are correct in that suggestion and that the Bible is the complete Word of God and does not contradict itself in any way shape or form.

How many Christians are able to explain all of these challenging issues in the Bible in a way that makes sense?

How many Christians have the time and energy to fully understand what is written in the Bible?

How many Christians have the ability to keep all of this in mind in their day-to-day life, especially considering so many pastors become caught up in ‘sinful’ scandals?

Jesus suggested the most important things are to love God and to treat your neighbour as you would yourself.  Why didn’t God make this clear in the first place?

Why did God create Holy Books that have resulted in so many different interpretations?

Why did God create Holy Books that cause so much confusion and contention?

Why is God’s love so complicated?

If God loves us, why would he let us go to Hell?

Does God, according to His actions toward humanity in the Bible, truly love us all?

Do some Christians pray to Jesus instead of God the Father because Jesus is more caring about humanity in the Bible?

Some food for thought.

    The bible is a library of books written over a length of time by various authors with differing concepts of God. Our knowlede of God must be as limited as that of a young child abut a parent. We can’t form an accurate concept, but we can place our trust and love in the Presence we experience, just as a child does.
