The Bible has been manipulated by man at the council of Nicea, and possibly by various others also

It would explain why there is contradiction's in the Bible, as there are certain Gospel's that was left out due to the council not wanting it in there

These contradictions happened long before Nicea, and they happen because the Bible was composed by many different authors, at many different times, by different civilizations.

Do these contradictions bother christians? Does it make them question the bible's authenticity? Just wondering....

It depends on how literally they take it. I think it bothers the literalists more than anything. Many Jews and Christians are aware of the contradictions and still faithful. They understand the historical background and modify their beliefs to make it fit. Some may call this convience, but who are we to judge what they believe?

Here's a contradiction I enjoy: compare Genesis 6:19 and Genesis 7:1.

Hell, try to reconcile Genesis chapters 1 and 2. Some of the biggest contradictions in the book are between the first two chapters.

Politicians aren't speaking the words of God as the Bible claims to be doing. They're human as we all are and I'm sure we have all contradicted ourselves at one point or another...but again we are not speaking the words of God as the Bible claims to be doing. There's where the problems lies Hasina,

I don't want to get involved in this kind of matters anymore. I think life is getting too complicated as it is.

I'll just need to be happy with what I choose to believe and let others be happy with what they choose to believe.
I'm all for that, but if their belief influences or affect others in a negative way I will not stand for it. If they keep it in their families but force it upon their children I will not stand for it either. It is just seen as socially acceptable child abuse these days.

Edit: I hate autocorrect.

Well, sure Hasina, we all know that... but the Christians don't want us to know that...!
