1 SAMUEL 13:1. THE UNRESOLVABLE CONFUSION
I write spasmodically and intermittently to make an avowal and asseveration on one of the unresolvable confusion and discombobulated variances of the Bibles.
Our Christian brethren are fully brain-washed into believing that the Bible is a divine book authored by 40 men who were inspired by the Holy spirit. Moreover, they are taught to believe that Christianity is the correct belief that everyone should have. Thus the ideology of the state is thrust upon them from the very beginning of their existence in this world.
However, when some Christians are exposed to the glaring discrepancies in the Bible, they begin to question the validity of their own beliefs and the authenticity of the Bible. The seekers of truth often reach a point of confusion upon realizing that there are contradiction, variations, anachronism and among others in the supposed book of God. After thinking to a very great extent, a sincere truth-seeker will come to the conclusion that, the Bible is not the word of God, While some may insist on doing blind belief after knowing the faults of the Bible.
Allaah “God” gave us minds and intellects to enable us to make a crucial decision on what is right and wrong. Below is the text in 1samuel 13:1 from the available Bibles.

it was omitted, why is the verse omitted? A question to our Christian brethren.
The above head-scratching puzzle from the Bibles worth a point to debunk the authenticity of the bibles.
This is a striking variable confusion from Bibles, and according to the Bible in the book of 1Corianthians, God is not author of confusion. We read…
For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.
If God is not the author of confusion according to the bible, then the Bible is not from God.
