Does The Bible Contain Contradictions? Does the Bible contradict itself? That charge is frequently made by skeptics. A careful consideration of the "law of contradiction, " however, will demonstrate otherwise.

Was the New Testament Influenced By Pagan Religions? Many Christian college students have encountered criticisms of Christianity based on claims that early Christianity and the New Testament borrowed important beliefs and practices from a number of pagan mystery religions. Since these claims undermine such central Christian doctrines as Christ's death and resurrection, the charges are serious. But the evidence for such claims, when it even exists, often lies in sources several centuries older than the New Testament. Moreover, the alleged parallels often result from liberal scholars uncritically describing pagan beliefs and practices in Christian language and then marveling at the striking parallels they think they've discovered.
