Every careful student and every thoughtful reader of the Bible finds that the words of the apostle Peter concerning the Scriptures, "in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest "unto their own destruction" (2 Pet. 3:16), are abundantly true. Has any one of us not found things in the Bible that have puzzled us, that in our early Christian experience have led us to question whether the Bible was, after all, the Word of God?

We find some things in the Bible that seem impossible to reconcile with other things in the Bible. We find some things that seem incompatible with the thought that the whole Bible is of divine origin and absolutely inerrant. It is not wise to attempt to conceal the fact that these difficulties exist. It is the duty of wisdom, as well as of honesty, to frankly face them and consider them. There are several things we can say concerning these difficulties that every thoughtful student will eventually encounter.
