comment What is the Biblical basis for the concept that Jesus spent time in Hell?
Aah, I understand your objection. The problem with your analysis ("not fact, but merely opinion") is that this opinion is actually doctrinal interpretation. Meaning, it may or may not be my opinion, however it is the "opinion" of a doctrine. There are many people who would read this verse and interpret it to mean to that Jesus went directly to heaven (or paradise). While it seems to be simply opinion, interpretation is much deeper more complicated topic. Ultimately, interpretation is the only means we have of learning "facts" from the bible.

comment What is the Biblical basis for the concept that Jesus spent time in Hell?
@EcommerceConsultant To which "last statement" are you referring? My actual last statement is "Read this article for much more information." All my other statements don't seem to line up at all with what you are asking.

comment Can we trust the Septuagint?
I agree, it could use a small summary stating that we can't trust the Septuagint due to the overlap between Methuselah surviving the flood.

comment Can we trust the Septuagint?
Interesting point. But I thought that lineage wasn't always direct lineage. So, X begat Y doesn't mean that X was the father of Y, merely the ancestor. Maybe that would be a good question to post. :)

comment What is the decree that Pope Gregory IX issued in 1231?
An interesting article titled Decoding The Statutes of Gregory IX for the University of Paris 1231. You might find it interesting, but it doesn't answer the question. It was "Based on the translation from Dana C. Munro, trans., University of Pennsylvania Translations and Reprints, (Philadelphia: University of Pennsylvania Press, 1897), Vol. II: No. 3, pp. 7-11", if that helps.

comment Can there be free will in heaven?
@TravisKindred comments are not really the place for such a discussion. However, option C is correct. However, "thoughts and experience are uniform" is a big leap to take logically. That's where you're getting off track. Also, it's possible to have disagreements without sinning. But that's just a philosophical thought--not a biblical one.
