Strange things in the Bible:
Here is a small list about few of the things that are quite irrational in the Bible:
The Bible wasn't even written by its original authors!
The Bible's contents today were not written by their original authors. For example, we read from the book of Matthew so many verses such as this one:
"...And as Jesus passed forth thence, HE (Jesus) saw a man, named Matthew, sitting at the receipt of custom: and HE (Jesus) saith unto HIM (Matthew), follow ME (Jesus) and HE (Matthew) arose, and followed HIM (Jesus). (Matthew 9:9)"
Did "Matthew" write this about himself? Why then didn't Matthew write for example: "he (Jesus) saw ME, and my name is Matthew. I was sitting at the receipt of custom " etc.
Similarly, we read in the books of Moses things such as "And the LORD said to Moses...", or "Moses went to that place....", etc... We also read in the Old Testament about Moses's burial. Now if Moses alone supposedly wrote his books, then how is it possible for him to write about his own burial when he is already dead??!!
Such evidence can be found in many places throughout the Old Testament and the New Testament. The so called "Original letters/Gospels" that were written in Greek and Hebrew, were written by third party people !.
It is quite obvious that Christians today believe in third party authors' (may be liars?) words as the words of GOD. This is a very serious corruption in the Bible that must be taken into deep consideration by the Bible's followers. Please visit "Is the Bible the true word of GOD?" to see a full and complete paper about the logical corruptions in the Bible, along with many Christian famous priests and ministers opinions that agree with the Bible's corruption. I have their personal quotes in that site.
Jacob defeats GOD?
"That night Jacob got up and took his two wives, his two maidservants and his eleven sons and crossed the ford of the Jabbok. After he had sent them across the stream, he sent over all his possessions. So Jacob was left alone, and a man wrestled with him till daybreak. When the man saw that he could not overpower him, he touched the socket of Jacob's hip so that his hip was wrenched as he wrestled with the man. Then the man said, 'Let me go, for it is daybreak.' But Jacob replied, 'I will not let you go unless you bless me.' The man asked him, 'What is your name?' 'Jacob,' he answered. Then the man said, 'Your name will no longer be Jacob, but Israel, because you have struggled with God and with men and have overcome.' (From the NIV Bible, Genesis 32:22-28)" How can a man defeat GOD Almighty in a fight? and why would GOD want to fight a human being anyway? What kind of wisdom is GOD trying to give us here? To try our best to struggle with Him and try to defeat Him?
GOD gets tired and needs to refresh to regain His energy?
"It will be a sign between me and the Israelites forever, for in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, and on the seventh day he abstained from work and rested. (From the NIV Bible, Exodus 31:17)" If GOD gets tired and needs to refresh His energy, then how can He have no beginning and no end as we believe about him? If His energy is limited, then wouldn't that make Him limited too?
Let us see what GOD Almighty in the Noble Quran Says about Himself?
"Say: 'Shall I take for my protector any other than Allah, the Maker of the heavens and the earth? And He it is that Feedeth but is not fed... (The Noble Quran, 6:14)" Here we see that Allah Almighty doesn't get fed from anyone. His Power is unlimited.
"Your Guardian-Lord Is Allah, Who created the heavens and the earth in six days, then He established Himself on the Throne (of authority)....(The Noble Quran, 7:54)" Here we see Allah Almighty claiming that He created the Universe in six days and then he established Himself on the Throne. There is no mention in the Noble Quran of Allah Almighty taking any rest or refreshing or regaining His energy. The Bible is obviously in error.
God wanted to kill Moses? His Messenger?!
"At a lodging place on the way, the LORD met Moses and was about to kill him. But Zipporah took a flint knife, cut off her son's foreskin and touched Moses feet with it. (Exodus 4:24)"
Two problems with this verse: (1) How do we know that this is true? Moses never said in the verse "...the LORD met me [Moses} and was about to kill me [Moses]". It is quite obvious that a third party person (maybe a liar?) wrote this.
(2) Why in the world would GOD want to kill His Messenger???!!! Didn't GOD Almighty pick the best of the humans to be His Messengers? and Didn't GOD Almighty purify them?
God blowing away His own prophecy?
"Then the LORD said to Moses, 'Write this on a scroll as something to be remembered and make sure that Joshua hears it, because I will completely blot out the memory of Amalek from under heaven.' (Exodus 17:14)"
God says that he will utterly blot out the remembrances of Amalek. That remembrance is now permanently preserved in the Bible!!.
Also, why didn't Moses say "Then the LORD said to me [Moses]...." How do we know that this verse from the Bible is true? It is quite obvious that a third party person (maybe a liar?) wrote this.
Rabbits chew cud?
"The rabbit, though it chews the cud, does not have a split hoof; it is unclean for you. (Leviticus:11:6)"
This verse states incorrectly that the rabbit chews the cud. Ask any biology teacher, he would tell you that rabbits don't chew any cud!!.
Flying insects have 4 legs? Some birds have 4 legs?
"All flying insects that walk on all fours are to be detestable to you. There are, however, some winged creatures that walk on all fours that you may eat: those that have jointed legs for hopping on the ground. (Leviticus: 10:20-21)"
These verses claim that there are winged creatures (birds or insects) that go around on all fours. Note: There are no birds that go around on four legs, and all insects have six legs.
