Yes. Keep in mind that God still used authors to write it---it's not literally God-dictated. It's God-inspired. In any event, there is no contradiction, and I see no errors.

So, we can't expect scripture to be word for word correct?

Of course we do. And nothing here suggests that it isn't.

So, which description is accurate? I'd say that the very fact that they are different denigrates the idea that we can trust each word of scripture.

Being that there are about 66 books with about 40 authors from diverse and different backgrounds writing over a 1500 year period about the same thing, there should be thousands of contradictions and errors.


If there were just 2 authors writing about the same thing over a 40 year period, there would be thousands of discrepancies, but you take 40 authors from different backgrounds and eras with 66 books with all of them speaking of the same thing, there should be so many problems as to disprove the bible itself and there are not, in fact, these authors were given a hidden design and a hidden agenda that they were teaching about completely unaware of the design and the agenda.


The Temple is built in the design of Human anatomy, and the ark of the covenant is only a uterus, and the veil that was rent was the veil of a virgin where we saw consummation when it was ripped, we saw the seed planted in the ground where the Earth itself became pregnant and 3 days later bore her first born son of many other sons to follow. We are talking about a betrothal, a marriage, a honeymoon, a consummation, a birth and a circumcision that are all hidden within the design and yet 40 authors taught about this very thing while being unaware that the design was of human anatomy and that of a woman.


Unaware that the priests dressed in their seed were coming up to the veil of a virgin once a year trying to get past the veil of a virgin with no door, and it was failure year after year until the first born. Unaware that those priests were representing sperm, and that's exactly what they look like dressed in their seed and outfit. And yet, all those authors agreed without contradiction and being unaware what they were even talking about.


All those authors writing on a hidden design and the hidden agenda about how we become born again after we have been betrothed to a new husband.


It just isn't possible that 40 authors were writing about something that they were completely unaware of, and yet they never trespassed the borders of that hidden design, of that hidden agenda, they agree from cover to cover about something they do not even know.

Pay attention, Vizio, there are three version, NONE of which agree on the details, so only ONE could be accurate in those details, and that fact militates against taking every word of scripture at face value.
