You should keep in mind that while the gospels are all we have, they are not a complete record of Jesus' ministry, life or spoken words. They are an embellished, written recollection of an oral traditon. Clearly, Jesus said much more and did much more than is recorded in these books that is lost to us. Why wouldn't you expect contradictions? Far younger relgious traditions suffer from the same syndrome. If I collected a very small percent of your posts at CFC, would they provide us with a clear and uncontradictory picture of who you actually are? I am curious, though, to know exactly what your source is for knowing what god would allow and what he/it would not allow in regard to theological discussions.
