Contradiction vs. Paradox

Nothing much on my heart to share today so I will post a simple question for you to ponder and engage with. I pulled this question from another blog that I regularly read and thought it was one important enough to work through:

Why do we call them contradictions when inconsistencies are found in other people’s faith and paradox when contradictions are found in our own faith?  

As a side note, I was chosen to read an advanced copy of Sword of the Lord: the Roots of Fundamentalism in an American Family by Andrew Himes and review it here on my blog. I'm really excited to do this, so stay tuned to read my thoughts on the book some time in May.
