"Possibly the strongest argument against the existence of the Christian god is contained in the theodicy problem, i.e., the problem of defending God in the presence of evil." One of the most popular theistic responses to the argument from evil is the Free Will Defense. In this essay, Dr. Berggren argues that the free will defense is a failure and therefore, in the light of the argument from evil, theism should be rejected.
There are Christians who believe that the Bible is the inspired, inerrant, infallible Word of God. This note shows that they are wrong in this belief, since there is a contradiction between a passage in 27th chapter of Matthew and the 1st chapter of Acts. If the Bible were without error, there could be no contradiction at all.
This brief note documents a second contradiction in the New Testament, thus undermining the view of some Christians, that the Bible is perfectly without error. We begin by taking a closer look at the two passages.
