I often chose best answers not because they are the best, but because I have to choose a best answer. Please, don't take offense to it.

comment Why neither David nor Solomon were stoned to death?
"He had seven hundred wives, princesses, and three hundred concubines" (1 Kings 11:3) - Did he really marry 300 concubines? What's the difference between wives and concubines? How marriage was understood at that time if besides marrying wives one was also suppose to marry his concubines?

Perhaps, no two witnesses in case of David, but what about the case of Solomon? I guess there were numerous witnesses who could prove that he had many concubines.

comment Jesus' quotation of Septuagint - Greek or Aramaic?
Thank you. There is one argument against Aramaic primacy that has been presented to me and I couldn't quite rebut: Why would Romans be written in Aramaic when Romans knew only Latin and Greek? Do you have anything off your head for this kind of argument?

comment Jesus' quotation of Septuagint - Greek or Aramaic?
Yes, since I've first heard that the NT was originally written not in Greek, but in Aramaic, I have passed through a lot of "ups and downs" in my research of this matter, my own beliefs and my own attitude toward this possibility, and yet today I can tell that I believe it to be true more than ever. Split words examples is something that really convinced me a lot about NT's original language being Aramaic.

comment Why did God need to plant the tree of knowledge of good and evil in the garden of Eden in the first place?
@user6484 - (2) of that, it's very possible that its leader would want to create numerous fake religions imitating the real one in order to try to bring down its validity.

@user6484 - (1) It is just like there had been many ancient cults and religions before Christianity with their own mother and the son of God. I personally am not bothered by that because, as it can be seen from NT, demons knew perfectly well who Jesus was and even to a certain extent were aware of the God's plan timing: "And, behold, they cried out, saying, What have we to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God? art thou come hither to torment us before the time?" (Mat. 8:29). Thus, if the dark world is aware

comment Is it true that Martin Luther was calling for killing Hebrew people?
"What Luther was calling for, specifically, was that they die" - Why "that they leave our country" option is not being considered?

comment When was it first said in Christianity by a Church Father that heretics must be put to death?
"... if someone as virulently anti-Christian as them can't come up with a better example than 300 or 1200 years after the faith began before you start seeing heretics hurt, I think that's a pretty good indication that it's not really what the faith was supposed to be about.." - Agreed absolutely! Sorry for the empty comment, but I just couldn't help responding.
