It struck me that I disagreed with everything (well almost everything) that the tract had to say.
Firstly the Bible does has contradictions and it's not hard to find lists like the 101 Clear Contradictions in the Bible by Shabir Ally. Now I don't agree with all of these but it's worth having a look and working things out for your self. Wether it's one of one hundred and one the point is there are some contradictions in the Bible.
Secondly the Bible is not scientifically accurate the entire Genesis creation account is written thinking that the world were a flat disc with a dome over the top of it.
Thirdly I don't think the Biblical writers (who were thinking Jesus may return in their lifetime) thought they were predicting 21st century events.
So why does this not bother me?
1) I believe in God and I follow Jesus not the Bible. This is a really important distinction. I believe the Bible is a record of God acting in history but it is not God itself. It was written by humans who could have made spelling mistakes and certainly wrote in light of their own cultural experience. So a lots of minor contradictions do not bother me, I look at the bigger picture of what it reveals about what God is like.
2) The Bible is not a scientific document, it is theological document. Someone once said being a scientist and trying to find out how the world was made is much like travelling through a desert passing dune after dune. At the top of each dune hoping to find the answer only to find another dune. But one day they will get there and as they approach that final dune they will find a group of people already there whom the scientists will ask "who are you?" and they will answer "we're the theologians, now that you've worked out how the world was made it's our job to work out why".
3) As far predictions of the future go I'm not sure if that's worth posting about in detail. I might if I get a question in the comments.
None the less the Bible is still the book I study more than any other, it shows me what God is like, what Jesus was like, and shows me how faith heroes lived in the light of what they knew of God. And this is what I want - I want to connect with God, I want to change and be more Christ like and contractions and scientific inaccuracy won't change that, neither will vague apocalyptic predictions of the future help either.
