Imperfections or mistakes in the Holy Bible

Q6: Doesn't this authority have errors?

There are a few typos, translation mistakes, but not serious errors in doctrine messages throughout the Holy Bible. The Hebrew words were carefully crafted by God, as seen in the rapid language emerging from Adam's mouth.

Ge 2:19 And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof.

(1) Human memory loss There are supposedly a few mistakes made by humans recalling events, assuming we understand them to be mistakes:

Mt 27:9 Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremy the prophet, saying, And they took the thirty pieces of silver, the price of him that was valued, whom they of the children of Israel did value; Zec 11:12 And I said unto them, If ye think good, give me my price; and if not, forbear. So they weighed for my price thirty pieces of silver.

Perhaps this is a memory problem for the writer? Or maybe Zechariah was also known as Jeremiah in Hebrew?

(2) Human translation or copy mistakes.

Mt 5:3 Blessed are the poor "ptochos" in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

This is a typo error when translating the Hebrew copy of Matthew into Greek by some translator and proof the manuscript was orginally written in Hebrew. The Hebrew word "aniy" can mean poor in some contexts, but generally should always be translated as "humble". See studies of aniy.

(3) Human problems reading Hebrew contex. Some of our so called errors comes from humans actually reading the Hebrew context wrongly.

De 14:26 And thou shalt bestow that money for whatsoever thy soul lusteth after, for oxen, or for sheep, or for wine, or for strong drink, or for whatsoever thy soul desireth: and thou shalt eat there before the LORD thy God, and thou shalt rejoice, thou, and thine household,

Seems to say drinking strong drink is OK doesn't it? Not sure of the context even to this day....I guess it goes to show if you leave God out of the Bible, you can make whatever you like of His Bible of writings.

There is another source of authority apart from the Bible for those doubting God's existence...
