Listen in as Christian Questions Host, Rick and CQ Contributor, Julie, discuss two questions related to our recent podcasts on Bible contradictions and demonstrate a methodology that can be used to understand how to see how the scriptures compliment instead of contradict each other. Here are some questions we answer in our conversation: 2:40 Why wouldn't a book from God be flawless and therefore totally reliable? 6:10 Here are some possible reasons for discrepancies between seemingly "contradictory" scriptures. 11:33 The Bible is full of human sacrifices and killing. How can that be acceptable?
Is unity easy? No. Jesus warned us of “wolves in sheep’s clothing”. The rest of the New Testament alerts us to the dangers Jesus’ followers would continually face.

So, can Christian unity be a reality? It can and is absolutely required. How? Watch this short vlog then listen to the full podcast of the same name for more details.

Watch this short video to learn more about the parable.
