Are There Contradictory in the Quran?

Some Christian think that there are contradictory in the verses of the Quran, asking wether  according Quran God change His mind and abrogate verses in the Quran, while  contradictory He stated that none can change His words.  They pointed out these verses:

“there is NONE who can change His words. He both heareth and knoweth (Surah 6:115)

None can change the decrees of God (Surah 6:34 )

There is no changing the words of God; that is the mighty triumph (Surah 10:64)
And recite what has been revealed to you of the Book of your Lord, there is none who can alter His words; and you shall not find any refuge besides Him (Surah 18:27 )

However:

Surah 2:106 “If We abrogate a verse or cause it to be forgotten, We shall replace it with a better one or one similar.”

Surah 16:101 “When We change one verse for another (God knows best what He reveals), they say: ‘You are an imposter.’ Indeed most of them have no knowledge”.

Answer:

There are no contradictory in the Quran. Every verses has their own context. What stated in 2:106 is aimed at the verses that should be written in His book of the past (Torah) that have been forgotten (by bible). For one thing:

Circumcision is obligatory in torah (the fact that Jesus was circumcisied – Lukas 2:21) but then  have been denied by bible (Galatia 5:2):

“Behold I, Paul, say to you that if you receive circumcision, Christ will be of no benefit to you.”

Albaqara 2:106 state for this context and the like, that God through Islam “replace it with a better one or one similar”

Whereas 16:101 is stated for His word in the past (before Islam) for the context of the society at that time, for one thing that God revealed verses and laws based on the circumstances and the situation or condition of the people like in the early days according to all who believe in Adam and Eve ( Jews and Christians)- brothers were allowed to marry sisters….we are all children of Adam and Eve…..our forfathers are children of blood brothers and sisters …..however, these laws were changed later on. He change His revealed verses with the new one stated in Torah, Bible and the Quran: that incest are no longer allowed
