As previously mentioned, the Bible contains errors that Christian scholars agree upon. In dealing with this problem the “solutions” might sound something like:
In my view this is proof of an honest system checking and verifying the perfection of the Bible. We have families of manuscripts and when we put them altogether we can find the copyist errors. Therefore this is actually proof that the Bible is perfect.
Sounds like a decent explanation, right? Don’t get fooled with these fancy words and explanations (it is like a police investigation to verify the facts, they say). First and foremost the Bible itself says it is from God:
• "For prophecy never had its origin in the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit." (2 Peter 1:21)
And, the Bible says God is perfect and His works are perfect (my emphasis):
• "He is the Rock, his works are perfect, and all his ways are just. A faithful God who does no wrong, upright and just is he." (Deuteronomy 32:4)
• "As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the LORD is flawless. He is a shield for all who take refuge in him" (2 Samuel 22:31)
• “As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the LORD is flawless. He is a shield for all who take refuge in him.” (Psalm 18:30)
Therefore, there should not be any error in the Bible – but, there is. Christian scholars agree that there are errors in the Bible. The fancy explanations they give are excuses for God (may Allah protect us from this form of disbelief) since the Bible itself says it is God’s flawless word – Christian scholars can avoid dealing with this fact by making up big worded and long winded excuses but at the end of the day there is a major problem here: The Bible has agreed upon errors while at the same time claiming to be the flawless word of God.
