The Bible Does'nt Contradict Itself; See Proof From The Scriptures

The Bible is a Holy Book that was inspired by God. It was written by holy men under the influence of the Holy Spirit. No practicing Christian can survive without the Bible.

Many users of this holy book have often pointed out that it contains errors. They mention Bible scriptures that seem to contradict themselves. They say the Bible is not a perfect book.

Yes the Bible seems to contain errors, but only because of the way you understand it. There is something called balancing scriptures. If you know how to balance scripture verses, you will know that the Bible is a perfect book. Let's take an example below.

Ephesians 2: 8-9 says

 "For by grace are ye saved through faith…not of works."

James 2:24 says 

"Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only."

In the first two verses, Apostle Paul says that works doesn't bring salvation. James says we cannot be justified by works alone. Apostle Paul means that we don't need to get salvation by working or being moral. Paul is referring to works done to make God give us salvation. James is talking of works after we become saved. James is saying that after receiving salvation, we need to prove what we believe by practicing. For example after salvation you say you love your fellow human beings. You need to show it in your works or behavior by giving to people. Otherwise you claim that you love people will not be justified. Paul means that as someone not yet saved, you don't need to do good and moral things to get salvation from God. In short God doesn't look at the good works of a sinner to give him salvation, but he expects the righteous man to prove his beliefs by doing good works.

If you learn how to balance scriptures, then you will find out that the Bible is not self contradictory. God is too smart to appear that foolish.
