Daily Bible Nugget #417, Galatians 6:2

The Nugget:

Gal 6:2 Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.

My Comment:

As is always the case, those who are caught up in falsehood are not able to address, much less refute, an argument which demonstrates the falsehood of their mistaken beliefs.

The tactic is always the same:  avoid the answer to the original false claim, and bring up yet another. When you have to engage in this tactic, your cause is lost, and the falsity of your position is evident.

Nevertheless, I try to patiently address the questions Muslims pose on the “Islam and Christianity Debate Group” discussion thread.  I have learned that what I have been posting is strong encouragement to Christians in remote regions of Africa and elsewhere. One said this thread has been the source of real Bible study for him.

Here is my answer to the supposed “contradiction” Muslims and many other unbelievers find in Galatians 6:2 compared to Galatians 6:5.

My Answer:

Dear Muhammad Jahid, your list of supposed contradictions is not as good a list as I would have hoped. Just the same, I will address the second supposed Bible contradiction on your list:
For every man shall bear his own burden. —Galatians 6:2
Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ. —Galatians 6:2
First, you may want to correct your listing here. It should read:
Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ. —Galatians 6:2
For every man shall bear his own burden. —Galatians 6:5
The answer to this supposed contradiction I presented in my book, The New Treasury of Scripture Knowledge, at Galatians 6:2, where I placed a note for the word “burdens,” as follows:
burdens. Gr. baros. Baros denotes the pressure of a weight, which may be relieved or transferred; phortion, also rendered “burden” (ver. 5) is specific, the “load” which each must bear for himself (Samuel Green, Greek Grammar, p. 385, no. 68).
I hope my answer will help you see that here there is no contradiction at all in the original Greek text of the New Testament.
And so for the rest of the supposed 100 contradictions you claim to have a list of, from which you furnished almost ten examples, I have verified, scholarly answers available for each of them.
I hope you will learn to think more carefully and more accurately about these issues. Take the time to understand and learn the truth. I have taken much time to give you good answers, answers which you cannot refute. 
If you can refute any answer I have given, show you can do so by writing in your own words a reasoned answer based upon evidence which shows that I am mistaken.
So far, you have not done so, but I encourage and welcome you to try. Don’t simply jump off topic to bring up another issue:  answer or refute what I have already clearly explained in answer to your specific questions.
I must assume that if you do not provide a specific refutation of the answer I provide, then this shows you cannot do so.  This would mean that my answer to your objection to the truth of the Bible and the truth of Jesus Christ and Christianity cannot be answered, which means what I believe has been proven true, and your mistaken objections I have shown to be unfounded or false.
