Things That Are Preached As Fact But Can't Be Proven.
I would just like to spend a few minutes and talk about some things that people preach as fact from the Bible, but they cannot prove it from the Bible.
1. People say that when Moses went up into Mt. Sinai he got the Ten Commandments on two stone tablets. But if you actually read the Biblical version of the story you find out that no where does it say that he did get them on tablets. In Exodus 20 he goes up to Mt. Sinai as the Lord has told him to do. While up there the Lord gives Moses the Ten Commandments. He also gives him several other laws for Israel. In chapter 24 Moses is called back up to Mt Sinai by the Lord, so he has obviously come back down. No where does it say anything about stone tablets. Now if you go to chapter 31 verse 18. It reads "And he gave unto Moses, when he had made an end of communing with him upon mount Sinai, two tables of testimony, tables of stone, written with the finger of God". No where does it say they had the Ten Commandments on them.
2. This now leads me to my next point. Everyone also states that when Aaron made the golden calf was when Moses was getting the Ten Commandments. Yet if you read the Biblical account you find that Moses had just gotten down off the mount, when God had given him the specifications for the Ark of the Covenant. The references for this are the same as the first one. In exodus 20-23 He is getting the Ten Commandments, and other laws. In chapter 24 he goes back up, and in chapter 32 we see the account of the golden calf.
3. Another thing people say is that when Samson married Delilah the philistine he was out of God's will. Yet if you read it, it says it was God's will. Judges 14:1-4 In the first three verses Samson tells his parents about Delilah, and then in verse 4 we read. "But his father and his mother knew not that it was of the Lord, that he sought occasion against the Philistines: for at that time the Philistines had dominion over Israel".
4. Another subject I would like to deal with is that when The Wise Men came to see the baby Jesus there were only three men. But again when we read the account it just says wise men and never tells how many. We find these account in Matthew 2:1-12.
5. Another thing is that when the angels came to the shepherds they were singing yet the Bible says they were simply praising God. Luke 2:13.
This is all for now thanks for reading.

This shows how people pervert the Bible or don't take the time to study the context.
