Thoughts On Polygamy

Warren Jeff's a leader of a polygamist cult has been arrested. He is charged with rape, child rape, arranging marriages of young under age girls to older men. I am glad that they finally found this man and will be brought to justice. This has started a whole new debate over marriage. I believe marriage is instituted by God between one man and one woman. In the beginning we see that God created Adam and Eve. He tells us that two will bcome one flesh. Later in the Bible we see multiple marriages or polygamy. Abraham, David, Solomn, and numerous others had many wives. You see in 1st Timothy the qualifications of elders is the husband of one wife, there was evidence of polygamy in other societies in the New Testament. In missions you have cultures that have multiple wives do you tell them to divorce the wives they have and stay married to just one? That would leave those women without a means of living. That has been discussed in missions classes.

Doyou think polygamy is wrong? Why? When did it change from one wife to multiple wives in the Bible and then back to the intended? What problems does polygamy lead to and hurt others? How have seen women abused in a polygamist society? How does it effect love?
Let me know what you think?

I don't have time right now to read it all, and I'm not sure if it even deals with polygamy, but it has a lot about the history of monogamy. Here's the website.

Guess I should've done my homework. Is there a Biblical reference, besides the deacon thing, that says that men should have only 1 wife? I'm not finding it.

Josh,

Not much is mentioned about having just one wife. I believe God sets us an example of how he created perfection before the fall. Before the fall it was just Adam and Eve. Adam and Eve lived harmony. Adam and Eve loved each other, helped each other. After the fall is when things gets messed up as far as relationship with God, realtionships with mankind, sin. I believe we must look back at the beginning as the example. I hope that helps.

Josh, thanks for your comments as always.

The women in those polygamist cults have been brainwashed. A study shows that most don't finish the fourth grade. The doctrines that they are taught are based on fear and manipulation. Most are molested at a young age, abused physically and emotionally. We need to help the women that are in these cults.

Preacherman,
There is no Bible verse condemning polygamy. However, God never advocated it, and every example of polygamy in the Bible ends badly.

It’s where I’m most happy. I’m not having fun anymore.” He also told Marks nfl jerseys store he has more fun at practice than he has at games.
