Bible Fallacies

Bible Fallacies

We must use the Scriptures properly every time we quoted them, under their proper context in which was written and following the rules of interpretation. Many have the bad habit of taking passages of the Scriptures out of their own context and the result is none other that a fallacy. what is a fallacy?  Is a mistaken belief, especially one based on unsound argument. When applied to the bible is a misinterpretation, scriptural inconsistency or myth. Every passage of the bible MUST be in complete harmony with the rest of the Scriptures. All religions, cults and fallacies are the result of people taking passages of the Scriptures out of their own context and applying to them they own opinion, breaking any connection between the line of thought that the writer expressed.

We are going to filter these so called “beliefs or doctrines” through the Scriptures and expose the fallacies in them. If any passage of the Scriptures provoke any contradiction within any book, the mistake is ours and not the author of the Scriptures, which is God. 2 Tim. 3:16 says:

“All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.”

“Inspired by God” basically mean that God is responsible for “the recording of each event exactly how it happened”. In other words, God inspired the writers of the bible (books) and registered each event exactly as it took place. God is not responsible for what happened on each event. Few examples:

  • The bible registered that Abraham said that Sarah his wife was his sister. In fact, his half-sister, the daughter of his father Terah. Sarah was approximately ten years younger than her husband. She was considered beautiful to the point that Abraham feared that when they were near more powerful rulers she would be taken away and given to another man. Abraham did the same thing twice. Gen. 12:10-13; 20:1-12
” And yet indeed she is my sister; she is the daughter of my father, but not the daughter of my mother; and she became my wife.” Gen. 20:12

Did God agreed with Abraham’s acts? Absolutely not. God is not responsible for any act of any of his creatures but his own. Angels disobeyed God’s commands and they received the consequences of their own actions. Adam and Eve also disobeyed God’s command and they both received the consequences for their own actions. The recording of all the acts of either angels and men was written with the purpose of showing us about the rules and warning given to each creature created by God and the consequences of breaking such rulers. Let me repeat this again, God as the author of the bible, is responsible for what is written on each book but not for the acts and events, in which is not directly involved.

  • Satan spoke in the bible, tempting Jesus many times with the purpose of making him to fail. Mat. 4:1-11. Did God agreed with all the acts of satan registered in the bible? Absolutely no. The purpose of God recording all the acts of satan in the Scriptures is to show how satan rebelled against God and his deceitful ways. Demons spoke in the bible, some men lie, some committed adultery, some stolen, murdered, etc. but God have nothing to do with these sinful acts. God’s nature is completely perfect in every sense of the word. Therefore any action or event that involves any creature that had rebelled can’t not be associated with God’s nature. God doesn’t know evil by experience but he sees the effects and consequences of evil on those that had rebelled against Him.
“How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.” Isa. 14:12-15

Same event described by Jesus:

“And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.” Luke 10:18

We can summarized God responsibility relate to the bible as follow:

  • God is responsible for recording of the events, which was written by men inspired by Him. 2 Tim. 3:16
  • God is responsible for the events and acts where He is directly involved. for example when God spoke to men in a dream, vision or audible voice and was reordered in the bible. Gen. 37:5; 41:1-7; 46:2; Daniel 1:17 7:7; ; Joel 2:28; Acts 2:17; 7:30-32. When God appeared visible to men and was recorded in the bible. Gen. 18; 32:22-32; Dan. 7:13 (show 2 distinct persons of the Godhead); Isa. 6:1; Ezek. 1:26-28.  When Jesus spoke and acted from his birth to the revelation of the apocalypses to John. John 1:1, 14; Heb. 1:3; Rev. 22:16. When The Holy Spirit spoke and acted in the Scriptures. 1 Kings 18:12; Mat. 4:1; 10:19-20; Mark 1:12; 13:11; Luke 4:1; John 16:13; Acts 8:29; 10:38; 13:2; 15:28; 16:6-7; Rom. 5:14; 1 Cor. 12:7-11; Gal. 5:18

The following are fallacies that many people teach as the truth.

Let’s filter all these topics THROUGH THE WORD OF GOD and NOT by what we think of them. God’s word must predominate above any theories!

  1. The church is “the bride of Christ” fallacy
  2. All religions lead to God
  3. It took Noah 120 years to build up the Ark
  4. Islam and Christianity worship the same God
  5. The rapture and the second coming of Christ are the same event
  6. Fallacies about The Godhead
  7. The eternal sonship of Jesus fallacy
  8. God can’t be seen fallacy
  9. “666” The Mark of the beast fallacy

we will adding more fallacies as we go.

What matters in the end is that we search in the Scripture what God had said and believe in it regardless of what others think or says about it, including the devil and his demons.

“Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.” John 5:39
