Also, please visit our Biblical apologetics blog at THESUREWORD.EXPERTSCOLUMN.COM.

Rest assured that there were no contradictions in the written Word of God in the originals. However, there are many alleged contradictions, misquotes, and misunderstandings that currently circulate. So these numerous links you find on this page do not mean there are a lot of problems with the Holy Bible. There is just plenty of misinformation circulating. Most, if not all, of my articles are based on the ancient texts of God's Word. For clarity, there will be many times I will refer to certain translations. My responses are based upon the ancient texts and solid principles of hermeneutics.
    While there are numerous apologetical sites on the Internet, some are way too technical for the average person, some attempt to prove teachings by unsound means, and some are just not of good and trustworthy quality. The following links will point you either to a whole article, or a section of an article, and open a new window or tab in your browser. Please give ample time for those links that point to a section of an article to find its anchor. NOTE: For any entry marked "(TRIOND)," the page might have to be reloaded a few times, and please excuse the advertisements (at this time it seems like Triond is out of service). From time to time we will also list articles from other ministries. Such links will be noted as "(External)," and while we might agree with the particular article that the link points to, we might not be in agreement with other information listed on that site, nor would we necessarily agree with any advertisements.
