Profound Biblical Contradictions – #1

“Thou shalt not bear false witness…” – YAHWEH (Exodus 20:16)


“Blessed are those who have not seen yet believe”
– JESUS (John 20:29)

The Exodus commandment forbids claiming things you have not witnessed. One of the few decent ideas in the Bible.

But Jesus tells us that “not seeing” is better than actually witnessing! Special blessings fall on those who claim as fact that which they choose to believe!

It is an astonishing contradiction.
When Christians claim, “He is risen” – (Matthew 26:6)  they are violating one of the better commandments. Thanks to Jesus, faking things becomes a virtue.
