Is Marriage Restitution For Men With 2 Or More Wives Actually Scriptural? by lonikit: 9:30am On Dec 17, 2017
Please, I want to know because it is practised in many Pentecostal churches. If you marry two or more wives before you got born again, you have to leave one and live with just one. this act of forsaking is known as restitution. I really want to know if this is scriptural.

Yes, u cannot be marrying 2-3 wives and be sleeping with them and claim to be born again. U must return the last 2 u married and keep the first wife. That is whn u are really born again, not jst returning them, u must be responsible for their upkeep until they re-marry

they were never regarded as wives in the first place. The one recognized as wife is the first one u Married, the other 2 u married after are not wives by scriptures so they are free to re-marry. It is the first wife that is regarded by God as a wife and she cannot re-marry

bro Abraham was not a christian, but a Jew. Christ is our example that is why we are christians. One wife and one husband, any other marriage aside one wife is not recognized by God as marriage but adultery.

Under the old covenant it was permitted but under the new tastament it is only one wife

i dnt knw why u are arguing. If u knw it u shouldn't have bothered asking. U asked for clarification and somebody is giving u answer and u are argueing in it again.

U are not getting the point. Dnt call them wives they are not wives. The only wife among the 3 is the 1st one, the other 2 are not recognized by God as wives but adulterous partners that is why it is a sin.

The bible is clear on this issue, under the new covenant it is only one wife that is allowed any additional one is adultery which u must return them to go marry their own husband properly because by scripture u are not their God's ordained husband.

Mat 19:4-6

The above scripture gave us a clear picture abt hw many partners should be involve in marriage. The above scripture clearly stated that it is between a man and a woman ,not women. It said they two shall become one ,not they 3 or they 4 shall become one flesh. If the bible says 1 and u married 2 or 3, must u wait for the bible to tell u to return them b4 u believe it is not right?
Whn u miss ur way u have to retrace it and not continuing in it. As far as the scripture is concerned the other 2 are not recognized by God because the bible made us to uNderstand that it is only meant for a man and a woman ,so the other 2 are jst in adulterous relationship as far as God is concerned.

common sense is in that verse. If the bible says that shall not steal, and u are in possession of what does not belong to u. Do u need a bible verse to tell u to return it, do u hold on to the stolen item? Common sense wil tell anyone to return it if u really want to repent.

U said it is marriage process, the vers said they 2 shall become one, is that a process or makeup?if he says 2 why making it 3 or 4? And if u have already made it 3 instead of 2 that he commands, do u need Jesus to come and write another bible for u on what to do? The bible says wisdom is profitable to direct.

so why didn't God frown at those that practised it earlier bcus it obvious Jesus quoted from the old testament. besides, he was teaching them that there is no room for divorce bfr he quoted it.
hope u knw they asked him whether they can divorce bfr he quoted that portion from old testament

we are drawing 2 lessons frm that one verse, we did not only learn abt God's position abt divorce, we also learn abt the makeup of a proper marriage. A proper marriage is the one between a man and a woman by joining the 2 of them to become 1 and not 3 to become 1 according to that verse so we dnt need anyother scripture on this subject, it is clear.

Unless u are looking for a scripture to soothe ur action which u cannot find any than this mathew 19:4-6.

the fact that Jesus draws his teaching from the old testament on divorce makes us understand that once u are married, u are not allowed to divorce again.
God says he hates divorce.
so, its gud to marry one but if u marry more than one bfr u got born again, there is no room for divorce anywhere in the bible.

marriage is a non essential tin

From beginning of creation it had being one man one wife. God’s plan is one man and woman (wife) for life (Genesis 2). . Genesis 2:23-24 says that a man shall leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife. God did not say that man was to be joined to his “wives.” He said that man was to be joined to his wife. That is one and only one.Jehovah over looked the men of old in old testament but it wasn't his original design

You married them legally, they are your wives, in fact, if you are financially capable, you can marry another wife - grin

As far as you did not marry or steal another man's wife, you need not make any restitution.

Don't listen to those Pentecostal hypocrites who parrot these untruths while indulging in all sorts of sexual perversion including adultery.

first of all i want u to know that Jesus never told Zacchaeus to give half of his property to the poor or restore x4 of whatever he has taken from anyone..

let's put it this way, if a man married 2 wives and the 2 wives have all giving birth to grow up children, and latter the man gives his life to christ, do u expect him to divorce the second wife and also disown the children he had with her?

if u have already married b4 without knowing God we call it the days of ignorance, and the bible says that the time of ignorance that God overlooks..

u have to take care of all of them as ur wives with thier children, God is nt a wicked man who is always looking 4 a reason to punish u or send us to hell..

If you are in possession of two or more women as spouse, it's left to you to do what the spirit lead you [What is Right].

frosbel2 is lying no church will force you to put away any woman, BUT the truth will be preached to you and the decision is left for you to take.

The only sanction is that you are not eligible to hold any position in church and that is Biblical principles
