Very Scriptural ...... all other women apart from the 1st wives are Robbers.... Except in a case where the First wife is Dead.....

Secondly Divorce is not Scriptural it's not of GOD

Read Matthew 19:4-9. Malachi 2:16

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.
STOP WASTING YOUR PRECIOUS TIME ON THAT HEAD SLAMMERsad

They cant provide any scriptural back up. Its daddy G. O said .....
All over the pages of the Bible, God did not hide is love for polygamist. So no pastor can tell me otherwise. God is the same yesterday, today and forever more.

Every unfaithfulness is a sin, u can't have two or more wives and be faithful among them. That's where the problem lies. Shikena

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
..But jesus(god)made those laws in the old testement...why the changes?

Lol. This guy does not want nor need an answer. He created a thread for the sake of it. Religious nut jobs arguing over a fairy tale book. Crazy people everywhere. The question a normal person should be asking is, what does the law of the land say about marriage and not what a fairy tale book says.

Gen 2:22-24 God made man and woman not man and women
Prov 18:22 He that finds wife not wives
Mat 19:4-6, Mark 10:6-9 in the beginning it was one man one wife not wives

Right from the beginning God has ordained marriage between a man and woman. So if a man marries more than one wife he is going against the scriptures.

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.

Marry as many wives as you want.

its not everyting dat strted from the begining are stil in practice nw. we know hw it started at the beginning but some persons did otherwise and God never punished them for marrying more than one.

the question is not how it was at the beginning. it is how scriptural it is to divorce one of ur wives bcus u got born again.

. Its evident you don't want an answer but just to argue. If you have three children under your roof as your ward and one among them is your biological child while the rest 2 are your wives niece whose father is in abroad expecting to come back , will you change their surname to yours simply because they are under your care? Those extra women are not your wives since you already have one. Their real husbands are waiting somewhere.

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
Re: Is Marriage Restitution For Men With 2 Or More Wives Actually Scriptural? by munas: 9:17pm On Jan 21, 2018
Since the person has married them before becoming born again,he can keep the two wives.

The only thing is that he will not hold any position like a deacon in the church

Why are guys condemning what God did not. If God does not like polygamy, why did he tell how to share inheritance in Dueteronomy 21v15-17

My brother, please don't get carried away by the traditions of men as is practiced in most Naija churches. On nairaland here, they will try to bully you but I promise you, not one of them have any scriptural backing to prove their so-called 'restitution'.

There simply is no such requirement in the bible nor from God to his people in the new covenant. How many past events in their own lives have they undone?

Therefore an overseer must be above reproach, the husband of one wife, sober-minded, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach,

The question they should answer is if every Christian back in the days of the apostles had only one wife then why stress the above in 1 Tim 3:2? Don't give into such self-righteousness.

Only scriptural explanation on people with more than one wife is inability to hold any positions in the church, nothing else.

You mustn't dirvoce any of the wives as long as you married them legally.

but abraham, jacob, david, solomon were all polygamous and God never condemned them for that?

No the Bible doesn't support divorce. In this instance the man can still live with the women but they are no more his wives. No conjugal duties. It is advisable he send away. The standard of God doesn't change. He doesn't change his word or standard to suit man.

So Abraham is now a Jew when marriage is the subject but when it is tithing they tell us to do like Abraham. Confuscius ni gbogbo yin walahi
