i Will show by the help of God’s Spirit that the Bible has no Contradictions.
You Can Find his 101 supposed Contradictions at Osama’s Website here:
I will be using the New King James Bible:
Now Let us Begin.
1. Who incited David to count the fighting men of Israel?
- God did (2 Samuel 24: 1)
- Satan did (I Chronicles 2 1:1)
24 Again the anger of the Lord was aroused against Israel, and He moved David against them to say, “Go, number Israel and Judah.
21 Now Satan stood up against Israel, and moved David to number Israel.
Now the answer to this is simple God allowed Satan to move David to count the number of Israel.
In other wards both God and Satan were Involved BUT FOR DIFFERENT PURPOSES.
For Example in the New Testament Both Satan and God were involved in the Crucifixion.
In 1 Corinthians 2:8 we Read:
Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.
Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath puthim to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand.
Notice how Both Satan and God were involved the Death of Jesus, however both had different purposes in Mind.
God wanted to Crush his son so he can redeem Mankind and satisfy his Justice or Wrath, while Satan wanted to kill Jesus because he hates God and wanted rid him of this World.
Here is another passage.
In John 13:27 We Read 27 Now after the piece of bread, Satan entered him. Then Jesus said to him, “What you do, do quickly.”
So again We See here that Satan prompted Judas to Betray Jesus and hand him over to the Jews.
Here is another Passage:
In Luke 22:42 we Read;
42 saying, “Father, if it is Your will, take this cup away from Me; nevertheless not My will, but Yours, be done.”
Notice here Jesus is asking for the Cup (Sin of the World) to be passed however he says not my Will but your will.
So since it was the Father’s will and since Jesus was not Rescued then obviously it was his will for Jesus to die and bear the sins of Humanity.
So when this passage talks about God and Satan prompting David to count, both were involved however for different purposes.
