Yes, there are numerous contradictions in the Bible.
And if you are a simplistic secularist who has fallen from the faith bequeathed to you by a reformist, evangelical denomination, which conditioned you to believe in Holy Writ having a standard of purity and non-contradiction which not even our secular laws contain, then you are ripe for the picking by atheist rubes like Dawkins and Christopher Hitchens.
The Bible was written not by God, from whom we could expect a certain standard of purity and holiness, but is a collection of writings encompassing several hundred, perhaps even a thousand years, so apparent contradictions between culture, language and time are simply to be expected.
This is the deplorable state Christianity has sunk to due to the legalistic wrangling of heretics, aka “reformers,” who accorded the Christian Holy Scriptures a legalistic standard they were never intended to have in the minds of the faithful. And when you substitute the written page as the word of God instead of the Incarnate Person who was the Word made Flesh, you become the embodiment of a time warp, a loss of faith characteristic of 16th century Europe, near a certain chapel in Wittenburg.
I am an ex-Baptist. Emphasis on the “ex.”
