Can A Christian Marry More Than One Wife? by mekaboy(m): 10:45am On Aug 17, 2008
Hello my fellow nairalanders.

Please i want to know if it is a sin for a christian man to marry more than one wife, i mean , not divorcing any, i know david did and it was not a sin and solomon the wisest man did and it was not a sin, so why will it be a sin today.

Because i think instead of a married man to go and have an affair with another woman, why not marry her too if u can afford it ? because from my point of view, i dont know if one woman will be enough for me ooo. LOL

Jusk joking, but let me know your opinions Please,

In the bible, marriage is discribed as
The union Of ONE man and ONE woman in holy matrimony.

So as 2 answer ur question,
Yes a cristian can have one wife, Bt howeva it is a sin.

Besides Polygamy is just a fancy word for cheating and bringin ur
misstress into ur house undecided

Hmmm,

You sure about that? Even david in the bibble took another wife at his old age, ok, look at this situation, a young boy for some reason falls in love with a woman who is 7 yrs older than him, along the line the woman gets much older and no longer active in bed, what happens? does it mean he cant take another wife even if she agrees?

@Mekaboy  

Gen 1:28 And YAHAWAH blessed them, and YAHAWAH said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth [/color][color=#990000][/color][color=#990000]

You are correct in your statment, One of the original commands from YAHAWAH was for man to go forth and multiply, It is still our custom till today to marry more than one wife. Our fore fathers were not European christians and did not worship any foriegn gods. Today the white man's christianity is brainwashing Africans into believing such nonsense and trash doctrine about one man and one woman. Let us read:

2Sa 12:8   'I gave you your master's house and your master's wives into your keeping, and gave you the house of Yisrayl  and Yahadah. And if that had been too little, I also would have given you much more!

2Sa 12:9   'Why have you despised the commandment of YAHAWAH, to do evil in His sight? You have killed Uriah the Hittite with the sword; you have taken his wife to be your wife, and have killed him with the sword of the people of Ammon.

As you've just read Abba YAHAWAH was willing to bless King Dawad with more Hebrew wives if he had only asked, rather than the wicked acted he committed.


1Ch 14:3 Then Dawad took more wives in Yahrushalayim, and Dawad begot more sons and daughters

As you can see the multiplication in effect, more wives = more sons & daughters.


Gen 16:3   Then Sarai, Abram's wife, took Hagar her maid, the Egyptian, and gave her to her husband Abram to be his wife, after Abram had dwelt ten years in the land of Canaan.

Gen 16:4   So he went in to Hagar, and she conceived. And when she saw that she had conceived, her mistress became despised in her eyes

As you see Ab-ra-ham (Father of Ham) had two wives, even though foolish jnr wife Hagar disrespected her madam who was Sarah which cost her a place in Ab-ra-ham's house. Remember Ab-ra-ham was blessed enormously by Abba YAHAWAH because he Ab-ra-ham did this :

Gen 26:4  And I will make thy seed to multiply as the stars of heaven, and will give unto thy seed all these countries; and in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed;


Gen 26:5  Because that Ab-ra-ham obeyed My Voice, and kept My Charge, My Commandments, My Statutes, and My Laws.

After Sarah died Ab-ha-ham took a third wife and her name was Keturah :


Gen 25:1 Then again Abraham took a wife, and her name was Keturah.  

Gen 25:4 And the sons of Midian; Ephah, and Epher, and Hanoch, and Abida, and Eldaah. All these were the children of Keturah.  

1Ch 1:32 Now the sons of Keturah, Abraham's concubine: she bare Zimran, and Jokshan, and Medan, and Midian, and Ishbak, and Shuah. And the sons of Jokshan; Sheba, and Dedan

Here is Ya'aqob (Jacob) Ab-ra-ham grandson also blessed of YAHAWAH !

Gen 31:17 Then Ya'aqob  rose and set his sons and his wives on camels.

Through the four wives of Ya'aqob came the twelve tribes of Yis-ra-yl as we know today


Gen 30:3   So she said, "Here is my maid Bilhah; go in to her, and she will bear a child on my knees, that I also may have children by her."

Gen 30:4   Then she( Rachyl) gave him Bilhah her maid as wife, and Ya'aqob went in to her.

Gen 30:5   And Bilhah conceived and bore Jacob a son.

Gen 30:6   Then Rachyl said, "YAHAWAH has judged my case; and He has also heard my voice and given me a son." Therefore she called his name Dan

Gen 30:9   When Leah saw that she had stopped bearing, she took Zilpah her maid and gave her to Ya'aqob as wife.

Gen 30:10   And Leah's maid Zilpah bore Jacob a son.


Here are Ya'aqob's 4 wives Leah, Rachyl, Bilhah & Zilpah


This is what the book of YAHAWAH'S LAW says:

Deu 21:15   "If a man has two wives, one loved and the other unloved, and they have borne him children, both the loved and the unloved, and if the firstborn son is of her who is unloved,

Deu 21:16   "then it shall be, on the day he bequeaths his possessions to his sons, that he must not bestow firstborn status on the son of the loved wife in preference to the son of the unloved, the true firstborn.

Deu 21:17   "But he shall acknowledge the son of the unloved wife as the firstborn by giving him a double portion of all that he has, for he is the beginning of his strength; the right of the firstborn is his.


You can clearly see that it is lawful to have more than one wife as long as your wives are not pagans or heathen who would bring their foreign Gods into your house to cause you to turn away from the worship of Abba YAHAWAH !!!

Jdg 8:30 Gideon had seventy sons who were his own offspring, for he had many wives

There are so many more instances that can be shown with regards to this issue, but remember if you follow the white man's christianity then you are under the dogma and doctrines of the Mother church and she says you as an African can only have one wife ! so thats what your pastor and the fake new testament will teach you.

Remember!

Mal 3:6   "For I AM YAHAWAH, I do not change;

This is a  future prophecy yet to come to pass, let's read :

Mic 4:2 Many nations shall come and say, "Come, and let us go up to the mountain of YAHAWAH, To the house of YAHAWAH ,Father of Ya’aqob; He will teach us His ways, And we shall walk in His paths." For out of Zion the law shall go forth, And the word of YAHAWAH from Yahrushalayim.  

Zec 8:21 The inhabitants of one city shall go to another, saying, "Let us continue to go and pray before YAHAWAH, And seek YAHAWAH of hosts. I myself will go also."  

Zec 8:23 "Thus says YAHAWAH of hosts: 'In those days ten men from every language of the nations shall grasp the sleeve of a  Yahadaim man, saying, "Let us go with you, for we have heard that YAHAWAH is with you."  

Isa 4:1 And in that day seven women shall take hold of one man, saying, "We will eat our own food and wear our own apparel; Only let us be called by your name, To take away our reproach."

d bible says that a man shall leave his mother and father and . . . . . . . . . . . . . cling to his wife and not wives
and both (not all) shall bcome 1

so many things in d old testament changed after d coming of jesus
Re: Can A Christian Marry More Than One Wife? by Gamine(f): 4:46pm On Aug 17, 2008
Marrying more than one wife is not stated as sin in the bible.

As Christians we are to follow Christ in everything.

Christ is depicted as the bridegroom and we are the bride.

which means one, single, singular.

If He is joined to one.

We also must be joined to one.

So, A Christian Should not marry more than one wife!

Are you a Greek? Hades is a place in greek mythology ! get it, It dosen't exist so how can I be firmly attached to a mythological place?, well so much for your wishes, they shall not prosper and Your God shall be destroyed by YAHAWAH


1 Chron 16:26 for all the Gods (Elohim) of the people are demons: but YHWH made the heavens.

Yer 10:11 thus you shall say to them: "The gods (elohim) that have not made the heavens and the
earth shall perish from the earth and from under these heavens."

Psa 95:3 For you O YHWH, are our Almighty Heavenly Father, and a Great King above all gods(elohim).

Psa 96:4 For YHWH is Great, and Greatly to be praised: He is to be Reverenced above all gods (elohim).

Psa 97:9 For You, O YHWH are the Most High above all the earth: You are exalted above every god (el)


Zep 2:11 YHWH will be awesome to them, For He will reduce to nothing all the gods of the earth; People shall worship Him, Each one from his place, Indeed all the shores of the nations
