Using the Bible as my primary source and references in support of it, I am willing to answer questions on subjects from the Old and New Testaments. My faith is based on biblical Christianity and fundamental views from the Bible. I cannot answer questions about specific sects or religious organizations nor can I address religions outside biblical Christianity. As a Christian for over 40 years, I have studied many aspects of the Christian faith. My particular interests are in creation and the natural processes of the world around us and how they fit with the biblical record. I believe that all Scripture is inspired by God. I believe that there are no contradictions in the Bible and that the Bible is complete in telling us as individuals how we should relate to God, Christ, and the Holy Spirit; our purpose on earth; and how we should live. Greek lauguage study has helped me gain additional insight into the New Testament but most of my reference work is done in English and, to a lesser degree, German.
Personal Bible study over the years, lessons delivered in Sunday School settings and messages during organized services, and leading Bible study series have prepared me to be comfortable addressing questions from others.

The short answer is "yes". For example, in Acts when Paul was talking to King Agrippa, he noted the objection that religious leaders had against Jesus and specifically mentioned the religion of the Pharisees
These are hard questions, sorry for the delayed response as I thought about them. The questions your son raises are often used as an excuse by unbelievers who challenge why a good and holy God would allow
Bob, In Genesis 2 (specifically verse 5 but the context is important), we see that no rain had fallen according to "the history of the heavens and the earth when they were created" (verse 4). We also
The short answer is that David had multiple wives because he was a sinner. It is clear that Mosaic law states that kings - and, I believe, anyone - should not have multiple wives (see Deuteronomy 17:14-18)
The passage in Hebrews 6 applies, I believe, to those who saw the truth but didn't accept it (enlightened mentally but not regenerated spiritually, as in verse 4). These people have "tasted" the truth
