here is one example of the bible contradicting itself. it's not just a minor thing that could be a transcribing error as it's widespread, even within the same book such as samuel.

here is the fast way to look up the verses:
http://skepticsannotatedbible.com...

Saul committed suicide.
1 Samuel 31:4-6
Therefore Saul took a sword, and fell upon it. So Saul died.

1 Chronicles 10:4
Then said Saul to his armourbearer, Draw thy sword, and thrust me through therewith; lest these uncircumcised come and abuse me. But his armourbearer would not; for he was sore afraid. So Saul took a sword, and fell upon it.

Saul was killed by an Amalekite.
2 Samuel 1:8-10
And he [Saul] said unto me, Who art thou? And I answered him, I am an Amalekite. He said unto me again, Stand, I pray thee, upon me, and slay me. So I stood upon him, and slew him.

Saul was killed by the Philistines.
2 Samuel 21:12
The Philistines had slain Saul.

God killed him.
1 Chronicles 10:14
So Saul died for his transgression which he committed against the LORD, even against the word of the LORD, which he kept not, and also for asking counsel of one that had a familiar spirit, to enquire of it; And enquired not of the LORD: therefore he slew him, and turned the kingdom unto David the son of Jesse.

i already debated on this, very recently. check out my debate on the issue. all the verses agree, if you study closely.

you should count this as a win since he didnt even debate. people should balance the votes cause it's not fair.

Are you trying to prove to yourself that you should not be a christian? Is that what it is???

I think there is a reason for this and I would like to know what it is.

this is not even worth debating the scripture you are showing is twisted and mixed around and you shut off the camera before you get to the end. My goodness what a pathetic attempt to denounce biblical scripture that may not be your particular belief system but you really should evaluate your lies when trying to push them onto a debate website.

sorry mate, but ol' richie's right you should really look stuff up for yourself. I looked at your sourse and it's all like that, twisting parts of quotes so as to make a feeble point.

Did you even bother to read your "evidence" before posting this? This isn't worth three rounds so I shall rebut it here. The first "quote" is only part of verse in 1 Samuel 31:4.
1 Chronicles 10 could not be in more agreement. I suggest you actually read it. The quote from 2 Samuel 1:8-10 is part of the lie the Amalekite told David in an attempt to gain his favor. This is really one of the most ignorant claims I have ever heard for Bible fallacy, and once again shows you didn't do any personal footwork on this. 1 Chronicles 10:13-14 is not a contradiction either. The Lord destroyed Saul through his own hand. What is the problem here? Actually doing a little personal research before posting other peoples' mindless rants would be advisable in the future. It will save you many embarrassments in life.
