For he that is not against us is for us. (ASV)
Edit this section if you suspect error.
Mark 9:40 For he that is not against us is for us.
Matthew 12:30 He that is not with me is against me, and he that gathereth not with me scattereth.
We have the following reasons to think there is a contradiction here:
- 1) Logically, the statements contradict regarding those who are not for or against Jesus.
- 2) The similar wording indicates it likely that "Matthew" used "Mark" as a source here and is deliberately changing Jesus' related meaning.
