Tell it to SunStar: Solomon’s lies

THE Bible describes Solomon as the wisest of all kings and the wisest man who ever lived. He may have comprehensive knowledge about zoology and botany but not about being obedient to God.

The writer of that passage must have been shortsighted. Because a truly wise person must obey God’s laws and commands. Solomon angered God by worshipping various idols.

The wisest person mentioned in the Bible also had many lies and recorded his lies in his book titled Ecclesiastes. Read Ecclesiastes and you will know what I mean.

He wrote, “There is no one on earth who does what is right all the time and never makes mistake” (Ecclesiastes 7:20). This is clearly his opinion and he was speaking for himself only.

He had no knowledge about the perfect persons born before him. Otherwise, he was deliberately lying. He had not read about Abel, Enoch, Noah, Job, Joseph and Samuel and all the other faultless people mentioned in the Bible.

Bear in mind: “The Bible was not written to contradict itself. That is what makes the Bible interesting. Religious leaders say the Bible is the truth. But there are also false statements said by various characters in the Bible.--Chito E. Germino of Paknaan, Mandaue City
