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


Really ? But Christ was not married and the Jew religion began after Moses because Jews are following Moses laws and ways only,, Oga stop saying what you do not know,, Father Abraham, Isaac, Esau, David, Solomon and many Men who God loves married more than one wife. Mtcheeew...! That is how you people would be shaming Christianity, so the other wives should go and die abi ? :-|

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
But Dueteronomy 21v15-17 said otherwise

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 why did God not frown at all the patriarchs that hav more than one wife

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.


Read your bible and stop the follow follow.
. Can you show me where it is written in the Bible that we should marry only one wife? Every prophets in the Bible married more than one wife. Can you simply contend the book of Isaiah 4:1?

Sir, pls correct me if I am wrong but Jesus himself was never married and there was never a place in the scripture where he chastised or spoke against polygamy. Also Jesus Christ affirm that he came to fulfill the old testament.

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.

First, it is a sin to divorce ur wife except on the basis of adultery. Any one that marries more than one wife in the traditional setting has not sinned. If he becomes born again, he cannot separate from the wives. The bible recognizes all the women as wives No place in the Bible tha says anyone who becomes born again shud put away the other wives. Paul only advised both Timothy and Titus that leaders in the church must be husband Of one wife. Which means among the congregation, there can be polygamists. The only thing is dat polygamists shud not be allowed to be leaders or elders in the church. Restitution of things in the bible does not include separating from the other wives. Can they return the virginity and all other copulations? It is knowing more than God himself wen we tell men to divorce the other wives! Other wves are wives and recognized so by God and the bible.

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.

God bless u bro. U shed proper light on what I didn't know for years. However beware, that not every one who ask questions are truly thirsty for answers, they just want to engineer unnecessary arguments. Don't reply him again.

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.


u re being brainwashed.
Jacob, david, solomon, abraham all married more than 1 wife and they were main after God's heart.

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.

He just asked for scriptural back up ! Please stopbpreaching church doctrines, give the guy a a scriptural backup

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..

get the logic, ''BEFORE BEING BORN AGAIN''. Now, what makes u to be so sure that the first one was married before God(wedded in d church). So if he seeked consent of the parents of the other two just like he did for the first one, and the three were not wedded but just performed traditional rites, and they are all married to him and have given him children, what right have u to ask the person to perform marriage restitution, what in heaven's name will make u say that? Or do u think the galatians and the ephisians and the corinthians that were told by paul and d apostles that baptism was just what dey needed to do to enter the sheep fold don't have multiple wives, why were dey not given marriage restitution as an option?? Remain blessed..

It is very wrong. You married the other wives properly before you got born again and now you want to send them where? Scriptures clearly says that a Bishop or a Deacon must be a man of ONE wife. That means that God recognizes the fact that he will have children that are could be married to more than one wife. The only implication is that you cannot be ordained to any spiritual ministerial post but you and your wives and family can gladly serve the Lord.

If God has ordained it during creation why wasn't he against polygamy in the Old Testament?

Atleast since he created one man, one wife in genesis, he should have showed His displeasure towards polygamist in the same Old Testament. So why didn't He?

The pentecostal church was built on a faulty foundation that is why today you cannot distinguish social club from the pentecostal church. It's foundation is sentiment not scripture. God cannot change. Marriage for raising future generations is not the ram sacrifice of the old testament. What is accepted in the mind of God cannot be altered eternally. People should be careful the way they dismiss old testament as if God is a politician.

Your question has been answered but, it seems you prefer argument.
Second or 3rd wife was never recognized as wife rather, as concubine. The bible says the two shall becomes one..not 3 or 4 in Matt. 19:4-5. The reason you have to do restitution is because you were committing adultery and the only mark of true repentance is restitution. Abraham and his children can't be used here as example because they weren't Christians.

Are you saying that Catholic Church overlooks polygamy when she denies you communion? Maybe you don't understand the place of Eucharist in the Church. Your catechism teaches you that the Eucharist is the source and summit of our Christian faith. The liturgy of the church revolves around it. So when you are denied, you have practically been excommunicated. The Church is telling you, you are not living right. Dust your catechism and read up on your faith, it will help you.

If a man have two wives,.... Which is supposed, but not approved of, though permitted because of the hardness of men's hearts; for it was not so from the beginning, when only one man and one woman were created, and joined together in marriage; but as it was connived at, and become customary, a law is made to prevent confusion, and preserve order in families:.Study Matthew 19:1-9 to get a better understanding. Right from the beginning of creation Yahweh didn't approve polygamy. Jesus mads this reference in Gen 1:27,Gen 2:24( God doesn't join a man with several women). It was the hardeness of the heart of the Israelites that was why it was permitted then but not now
