Hover over Romans 1:20-22 for proof of God's existence, and over Matthew 5:27-28 for Judgment Day’s perfect standard. Then hover over John 3:16-18 for what God did, and over Acts 17:30-31 for what to do.

Genesis "Contradiction."

Does God have a body or is He a spirit?

"And they heard the voice of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day" (Genesis 3:8).

CONTRADICTION: "For a spirit hath not flesh and bones” (Luke 24:39), “God is a spirit" (John 4:24).

EXPLANATION: The reference to God “walking” is what is known "anthropomorphism." This is common in Scripture and attributes the characteristics of man to God, using words like "face" and "hand" when describing Him and what He does. For example, when the Bible says that "the eye of the Lord is in every place beholding the evil and the good," it doesn’t mean that God has a physical eye that is everywhere. It simply means that God is omniscient--that He sees everything.
