The Bible is contradictory, and presents variant records of both historical events and doctrines, which on examination prove to be mutually exclusive. This is most obvious when considering "history" as it is presented in the Bible.
There are similar conflicts in doctrine found in the Bible, and they are also mutually exclusive. The Bible actually presents a range of positions on almost every issue. What passes for 'Bible based teaching' then consists of a process of selection and selective nullification, with the process of nullification submerged under the weight of polemical argument.
In the book of the prophet Jeremiah we read that not only was Moses not the author of the Torah, but that the sacrificial system was a form of rebellion against God, and that the laws of God represented as coming from Moses were actually forged by the priesthood.
(Jeremiah Chapter 7 verse 21)
"Thus says YAHWEH of hosts, the God of Israel, "Add your burnt offerings to your sacrifices and eat flesh. For I did not speak to your fathers, or command them in the day that I brought them out of the land of Egypt, concerning burnt offerings and sacrifices.But this is what I commanded them, saying, Obey My voice, and I will be your God, and you will be My people; and you will walk in all the way which I command you, that it may be well with you. Yet they did not obey or incline their ear, but walked in their own counsels and in the stubbornness of their evil heart, and went backward and not forward."
So what happens to people who don't believe these cock-a-manny stories fabricated by the high priests?
Why .... gawd kills em - dead, hundreds, or thousands, of even a million Ethipoians.
2 Chronicles 14:9
There came out against them Zerah the Ethiopian with an host of a thousand thousand. 2 Chronicles 14:9
And Asa cried unto the LORD his God, and said, LORD, it is nothing with thee to help, whether with many, or with them that have no power: help us, O LORD our God; for we rest on thee, and in thy name we go against this multitude. 2 Chronicles 14:11
So the LORD smote the Ethiopians ... they were destroyed before the LORD. 2 Chronicles 14:12-13
It was the largest, single, God-assisted slaughter in the Bible.
