An oxymoron is two apparently contradictory words that are used together, like jumbo shrimp.  I have always felt the term ‘white chocolate’ is an oxymoron.  Chocolate is brown, not white.  If it’s white, it’s not chocolate.  But the other day I came across a phrase that outdid that,  it was ‘dark white chocolate’.  To me that makes absolutely no sense at all.  But if you look carefully at each oxymoron the true meaning is usually easy to figure out.

    Sometimes when reading the Bible we find passages that seem to make no sense or cause confusion.  But God makes no mistakes, His entire Word fits together perfectly.  We cannot just skip over them or assume they are not correct.  We must take time and study confusing passages so that we can decipher their true meanings.

    Psalms 18:30 tells us, “As for God, his way is perfect: The LORD's word is flawless; he shields all who take refuge in him.” (NIV)  His way is perfect, His Word contains no errors and if we take refuge in Him and His Word, He will be true to protect us.
