comment The Bible seems to allow polygamy. Why doesn't the church?
@JimThio That varies state-by-state, actually. Some states prohibit co-habitation. Some states allow for common-law marriage, but still have laws prohibiting polygyny. Unfortunately, simply living together in polygamy and accepting God as the author of marriage is not as legal as it may seem at first blush. Each states laws have to be taken into account.

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.

@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.
