Here's an example page from his website.
It took him 7 years to complete, so it's pretty clear that although he's a believer, he does really know his Bible. So let's hear what he has to say. So far he's given me 5 explanations of contradictions. I'm going to post them one at a time so we can examine them here at the blog.
Is marrying or not marrying good?
Mr. Wells claims another contradiction in comparing 1 Corinthians 7:1 with Proverbs 18:22. 1 Corinthians 7:1 says:
It is good for a man not to touch a woman.
And Proverbs 18:22 says:
Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing.
Let's turn this into a syllogism:
- All who marry do well (Proverbs 18:22).
- All who do not marry do well (1 Corinthians 7:1).
- Therefore we have a contradiction.
Hearing the conclusion, most people would say:
“huh?” This is an example where there is nothing wrong
with the premises. The problem is that the conclusion does not
follow. It's a so called “non sequitur.”
As an Euler circle it looks as follows:
The diagram demonstrates there is no contradiction: both things
are good, one does not come at the exclusion of the other.
To make this into an actual contradiction we would need premises like:
- All who marry do well.
- All who marry do not well.
And the corresponding Euler circle:
From this diagram it is immediately clear we would have a
contradiction. But this is not something the Bible claims.
