Answering The Atheist

THE ATHEIST'S COMPLAINT:
Did Asa remove the high places? 2 Chronicles 14:3-5 says that he did, but 1 Kings 15:14 and 2 Chronicles 15:17 say that he didn't. Is there a contradiction?
Asa removed the high places which were in Judah and Benjamin, even as 2 Chronicles 14:3-5 says (cf. 15:8). The high places which were not removed, were those which were in Israel (2 Chronicles 15:17).
There is no contradiction.
