I didn’t grow up in a christian family, but I was sent to Sunday School from when I was young. And so I learnt to believe that the Bible was true.
It was only later, in my late teens, that I began to discover some anomalies in the Bible that didn’t fit what I had been taught.
I didn’t continue to believe what I was taught, despite the problems, as many people do. And I didn’t decide that if the Bible isn’t what I thought it was, it couldn’t be true at all, and so give up my faith faith, as others do.
Instead I grappled with the anomalies and often ended up modifying my understanding of the Bible and of God.
I want to share my journey with one such anomaly that has changed some of how I think about the Bible and about the christian faith.
