Re: I would fail Abraham’s test

Where do you think Jesus got it from? (hint: OT)

You sure you want to adopt this land for your own, Adrian?? :-)

I like it here. No desire to live elsewhere anytime soon. Everywhere has its problems. I do still have my UK passport, though :-)

Re: plural wives indeed

This can't be right, because monogamy is demanded by the Bible (I assume), and the Bible is the Word of God, not Man.
