Maybe God Put Contradictions In The Bible To Weed Out Dishonest Christians

Kent Hovind has suggested that God may have put difficulties in the Bible to weed out the atheists. I’d like to suggest that it is more likely that God put them in there (if indeed God is to blame) in order to see which Christians would be honest enough to acknowledge them, and which would become dogmatic and dishonest charlatans like Hovind and lie about them.

See further the posts about Biblical errancy elsewhere on Patheos blogs Daniel Linford and Stewart James Felker.

Below is the video with Kent Hovind referred to above. I wonder if there is a longer version in which he tried some convoluted attempt to avoid concluding that in one place Luke said those with Paul heard but did not see, and in another that they saw but did not hear.
