I just said that below.

Actually it is. Nowhere is any practice of polyagomy accepted by God in the Bible. It is merely tolerated (as sin in general is) and if you look at examples like Abraham being with 2 different women, Solomon having 700 jawns, Davis sleepin' with bathsheeba etc. it most-always leads to much chaos (in Solomans case, his downfall).

if I am wrong, please point to me an instance where polyagomy is accepted as righteous.

I know eating pork isnt healthy. But to me making an example of the swine being unclean (and a sign of things that are dirty,unclean,ungodly) while eating other animals that are just as flithy makes no sense. But thats just me. That isnt an insult on what you have learned, I just don't see the point in man understanding the uncleanliness of a pig without being a fulltime vegetarian.

Once again, I would take issue that despite this the two books take a completly different role on the death of Christ. One says he was taken up to God and not killed and the other says he was slayed on a cross for mans atonement.

Just some perspective...
