So you posted a fake quote of Jesus in the
biblical contradictions thread, it was pointed out to you, you pretended you did not see it, but here you are, with another thread, and another so called contradiction, having never addressed the answers given in the contradiction thread, or the charge of fake quotes.
In Exodus 3:6 is this statement.
And Moses hid his face: For he was afraid to look upon God.
I'm sure you are familiar with the burning bush passage.
Now, had Moses NOT hid his face and looked, what would he have seen?
God, or a burning bush?
You read the bible like a 3rd grade literalist when you want a "contradiction", but at other times you will assume stuff not in the text and pretend your assumption is reality.
No man has seen God AS HE IS.
Your verse in 1st Tim 6 says, "whom no man hath seen, nor can see[God]:
In other places we are told we cannot see God AS HE IS or we will die. God must appear to us in some other form we can perceive, so that we don't die.
Later in the Epistles, we are told we will finally see God AS HE IS at the rapture because we shall all be changed to be like Him.
Your 1st verse,
The Lord appeared to Abraham near the great trees of Mamre while he was sitting at the entrance to his tent in the heat of the day (Genesis 18:1).
God appeared as a man. One of three men in fact. This isn't seeing God AS HE IS.
Your 2nd verse,
And Jacob called the name of the place Peniel: for I have seen God face to face, and my life is preserved.(Genesis 32:30) King James Version (KJV)
Jacob only says he has seen God. When in fact he had only wrestled with a man. This is not seeing God AS HE IS.
Your 3rd verse,
The Lord would speak to Moses face to face, as one speaks to a friend (Exodus 33:11).
I will post more of the passage so as to vanish your claim of a contradiction, OK slick?
9. And it came to pass, as Moses entered into the tabernacle, the cloudy pillar descended, and stood at the door of the tabernacle, and the Lord talked with Moses.
What did Moses see? A cloudy pillar or God? Face to face here means proximity, not what Moses could see. God was face to face close to him.
How do I know I'm right? In verse 18, Moses wants to, and asks to, see God. Why would he ask to see God in verse 18 if he had just seen God in verse 10?
But God replies in verse 20., you cannot see my face: for there shall no man see me and live.
So even your example you use to show a contradiction, has no contradiction. No man has seen God, in fact, No man CAN see God.
Only one man has ever seen God AS HE IS, and that is the man Jesus Christ.
When Phillip asked Jesus to show them God, Jesus asked Phillip, "Have I been with you all this time and yet you don't know me?" When Phillip looked, what did he see? Jesus or God?
Because of your ignorance and immaturity in Christian doctrine, you read the bible as if words can have only one meaning, and you cut verses and then act as if the little snippet you have cut is the entire verse.
So, no man has seen God AS HE IS. We see what God appears as so that we don't die.
1Co 15:51 - Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,
1Co 15:52 - In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
1Jo 3:2 - Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.
This "contradiction" is kaput jedthro.
