It is indeed alarming to see that a great many people read the Bible for the exclusive reason of trying to discredit the text and humiliate God with a claim of many so-called “discrepancies” littering His Word. During my studies of the Bible I have come to see that most if not all of these “discrepancies” are the result of either people not reading the Bible correctly, or they come to conclusions by reading the different translations or expositions of the Bible...
Once again a narrative in the Bible is torn into shreds by the tug of war between the Fundamentalists on the one side and the “science” mockers on the other side with Jonah and the fish in the centre. The fundamentalists go to great lengths to “prove” that the story is no fake and in the process have to lean heavily on folklore to lend weight and credence to their “defence” of the Bible, at the same time manufacturing precious material for the mockers to build the Mocking Temple of God and the Bible. In the meantime, the essence of the narrative gets lost in this struggle. There is a very profound Truth that is hidden in the story of Jonah and the Fish and it is this Truth that we want to get to by doing this exposition of the Book of Jonah.
There are many verses in the Bible emphasizing that the foundation of the earth is indeed set on pillars. Makes one think of the skyscraper buildings whose foundations consists of piles, drilled deep into the rock formations under the building in order to be a strong and unmoving foundation. Let’s look at some of them:
Here is another very good example of how the so-called scientific wise men judge God and His Word on the basis of their own ignorance. Their brains are incapable of registering what they read and their conclusions reflect their prejudice against an unseen God, a Being that can be justified by the Absolute Truth of His word. In this article I want to prove that God knows ALL about the value of π (pi), and that Hiram could not have done it without His Inspiration and the two different writers of the Text could not have done it without God inspiring their thoughts.
The mockers have a good laugh here at the expense of Jesus. They say that if Jesus is God then He should be omniscient and know that the mustard seed is indeed not the smallest of all seeds! But let’s see who will have the last laugh!
THE AIRPLANE - A SUBSPECIES OF THE BAT?
Here the Bible mockers are simply arrogant. The same mistake and the same reason for it: Coming to a conclusion without regard for what is written there. The passage quoted is not like what they think a “Bat classification”. There is another reason why the bat is categorized with the fowls and this stands out as clearly as daylight for those who really want to see. The purpose of this whole section in the Law is to catalogue KOSHER meat in the fowl population and really...!
Here we have a case where God is mocked for allegedly not knowing His biology! Imagine the CREATOR of biology does not know biology! One could have had a hearty laugh if this was not such a serious accusation. And to think that this conclusion is made after skimming the surface of just four verses in the Bible. The conclusions here are a classical example of un-biological Biology! Let’s look at the Text:
