The moment competent scholars offer a reasonable and probable explanation by which difficulties would be reconciled, necessary contradiction is excluded
If I find the Word of God to be contradictory, why should I put faith in the word of men?
Errr...that would be because the Bible is the Word of God copied by the "word of men". The article explains it quite clearly as:
Mistakes and interpolations were certainly possible, but by comparison of independent copies these are discoverable. Yet remember that the Catholic Church does not say that copyists were inspired. Inspiration is claimed for the original Evangelists. In so far as later copies or versions exactly correspond with their original writings they give the inspired Word of God. In so far as they are not exact, they do not.
Of course, even the "Sola Scriptura" crowd have many scholars involved in NT textual criticism. It is hard to deny facts, but much harder to deny traditions for some.
