Oops! Another Bible Blunder

Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Put your burnt offerings unto your sacrifices, and eat flesh. For I spake not unto your fathers, nor commanded them in the day that I brought them out of the land of Egypt, concerning burnt offerings or sacrifices: But this thing commanded I them, saying, Obey my voice, and I will be your God, and ye shall be my people: and walk ye in all the ways that I have commanded you, that it may be well unto you.

Jeremiah 7: 21-23

And the LORD called unto Moses, and spake unto him out of the tabernacle of the congregation, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, If any man of you bring an offering unto the LORD, ye shall bring your offering of the cattle, even of the herd, and of the flock. If his offering be a burnt sacrifice of the herd, let him offer a male without blemish: he shall offer it of his own voluntary will at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation before the LORD. And he shall put his hand upon the head of the burnt offering; and it shall be accepted for him to make atonement for him. And he shall kill the bullock before the LORD: and the priests, Aaron's sons, shall bring the blood, and sprinkle the blood round about upon the altar that is by the door of the tabernacle of the congregation. And he shall flay the burnt offering, and cut it into his pieces. And the sons of Aaron the priest shall put fire upon the altar, and lay the wood in order upon the fire: And the priests, Aaron's sons, shall lay the parts, the head, and the fat, in order upon the wood that is on the fire which is upon the altar: But his inwards and his legs shall he wash in water: and the priest shall burn all on the altar, to be a burnt sacrifice, an offering made by fire, of a sweet savour unto the LORD.

Leviticus 1:1-9

So which of these is the truth? Is the account in Leviticus 1 of God talking to Moses concerning burnt offerings, correct, or is Jeremiah right to say that God did NOT give any such command?

Or are we expected to just believe two mutually contradictory things simultaneously in order to believe that the Bible is the word of a god, and not a poorly edited and inconsistent collection of various writings of different people following different agenda at different times?

  2. Contradiction number in the Bible... the inerrant, perfect, unchanging words of the almighty creator of the universe... who is put to shame daily by the textbooks mere mortals publish.

    How, can, people, believe, that, crap?!?! The mind boggles.

  3. The depressing part is that in the next "revision" of the Bible, they will probably correct most of these inconsistencies and contradictions and then claim inerrancy.

  4. Hello, Came across your webpage via your offerings image. Just wanted to help clarify why the confusion with this "contradiction". It's actually not a contraction but taken out of context. You have to read the before and after, not just pick out pieces of the Bible. Jeremiah 7:21-23 refers to the time BEFORE sacrifices were commanded. Then, your selection from Leviticus refers to Gods commands AFTER He gave them the law for sacrificing.

    1. LOL! Love the way these errors and contradictions in the Bible are waved aside as 'taken out of context'. In what context does God saying he didn't do something that the Bible clearly says he DID do, both become true, please?
