If it is impossible for god to lie, does this imply god is not omnipotent?
I read an article that said: for example, there is no contradiction about how Judas died. Yes, John says he went and hanged himself while Mark says he jumped over a cliff. What really happened was that he hanged himself from a branch of a tree that was on the edge of a huge gap and then the branch broke and he fell into the gap. No contradiction there.
I swear it said that. I might have gotten the names wrong but that was the story. I didn't know whether to face palm of laugh my ass of first.
What is, this I don't even...
When the bible gives two different events (such as different ways for Judas to off himself) there will be attempts made to reconcile the two, resulting in the claim that the two different accounts each told differing halves ofthe same story. John says Jesus drove the moneychangers out of the temple on a visit to Jerusalem before the one where he was crucified, the other gospels that he did so on the one and only visit that they mention--the one where he got crucified. So the literalists reconcile this by claiming Jesus did it twice, with John telling of the first time and the other gospels the other time. (More likely John just didn't give a rat's ass about telling the story in chronological order.)
It's a little harder to explain away the fact that John says Jesus was crucified the day before passover and the other three (synoptic) gospels maintained that it happened on the first day of passover.
Hay, I am trying to have a nice day here, can you keep the double think down to a low rumble?
And the correct way to debate an atheist is to put fingers in both ears and yell "la la la la, I can't hear you!"
