comment Why was having concubines not a sin like adultery?
@Beestocks De 21:15, for example. It's never stated as an official commandment or allowance, but it is regulated, as if it as least permitted.

comment Is there a verse about “big” and “small” lies being the same in God's kingdom?
I don't think you'll find such a statement strictly about lies (in a typical protestant Bible). All sin is equated as being equally sinful, but even that is a conclusion based on the Biblical authors' treatment of sin, not a statement saying "murder is just as sinful as lying." If you have a specific canon in mind, you could add that to the question or as a tag.

comment Does the Bible indicate whether Solomon is in heaven?
"as I took it away from Saul" could also be referring to the kingship staying within David's family God did with Saul.

comment Can the Pope speak ex cathedra about the return of Christ?
Are there Christian groups who believe that the second coming could be unnoticed by anyone? Is this a pre-mil possibility?

comment In Proverbs 19:20 whom should one hear, receive from, and accept? God or any wise man?
@user10314 In the introductory chapters, wisdom and folly are personified, and we are adjured to choose wisdom and avoid folly. This proverb is one specific way that we should choose wisdom over folly: listen to advice, instruction, and correction.

comment Why was Jewish High Priest commanded to have a golden plate inscribed “Holiness to the Lord”?
And the purpose of bearing the sins of Israel is to take them before God in the Holy of Holies to be atoned for.

comment What is the Biblical basis for saying that God can annihilate human souls?
Are you asking if God is able (has the power to do so) annihilate a soul or if he is willing? If the former, I posit that God is all powerful. It stands to reason that anything he can create, he can destroy. This doesn't really sound like it answers your question, though.
