Jesus Christ has assigned one man to one wife. Old testament figures who practiced polygamy came after Jesus and his message.

Uhm can you quote the verse were Jesus explicitly said one man one wife....and from what I know the message of Christ doesn't invalidate the old testament.

For a time, God did permit a man to have more than one wife. (Genesis 4:19; 16:1-4; 29:18-29 ) But God did not originate the practice of polygamy. He provided only one wife for Adam.
God authorized Jesus Christ to reinstitute His original standard of monogamy. ( John 8:28 ) When asked about marriage, Jesus said: “He who created them from the beginning made them male and female and said, ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and his mother and will stick to his wife, and the two will be one flesh.’”—
Matthew 19:4, 5 .
One of Jesus’ disciples was later inspired by God to write: “Let each man have his own wife and each woman have her own husband.” ( 1 Corinthians 7:2 ) The Bible also states that any married man in the Christian congregation who is given special responsibilities must be “a husband of one wife.”— 1 Timothy 3:2, 12

Females don't want polygamy because they detest competition.
So your opinion/position is understandable, if not give passage of the Bible that explicitly said it is a sin

Matthew 19:4-5 was Jesus response on divorce and not on polygamy..if you start reading from verse 3 instead of 4 you'd find out it was a response to the Pharisees.

1 Corinthians 7:2 wasn't a command but only an advice from Jesus as he said being single was a better option. As if you'd read from verse 2-7. Verse 6 explicitly said this:I say this as a concession, not as a command.

1 Timothy 3:2, 12 didn't say a man must have one wife, neither did it say a man should have multiple wives it's simply relating on how a servant of God must treat his wife and family.

Monogamy is the Christian way, if you need passage I can help you. However, we are humans and some people will always desire extra taste and longing for more.

Sorry about that insult I saw there. I find it a turn off for a Christian to be abusive by little things. No one is perfect I know.

Your interpretation of this scriptures are wrong. Is every one a deacon? Would everyone hold a position of authority in church? No.

Understanding the demands in leadership in church was why that caution was giving. Pls let's not mislead people with our personal meaning to scriptural dictates.

What truth? Really Insult? What will then do to those who don't believe in your faith? I guess you will kill them?

This is how boko haram started...Insult me...I understand but allow people challenge your truth so you get to learn more. This is how Apostle Paul won the hearts of many to Christ.

Deuteronomy 17:17



The first 4 scriptures were talking about a man's responsibility to his wife, abstaining from premarital sex and addressing the issue of divorce, whether or not the words were singular or plural doesn't really hold a strong argument, most times God or Jesus used the word "man" for issues that applied to "men" and even women, so him using wife instead of wives doesn't exactly state it as being applicable for "wife" alone.

And Deuteronomy was God giving instructions to the levites and the king.
Am still waiting for a scripture were God said polygamy is a sin that will lead a man to hell.

The first 4 shows one man and one woman, remember the two becomes one flesh. Not the man and his wives. Wherever there is plural attached to man (men), it also applied for woman (women) as a general term. You notice that the Bible never tell man to engage in many women (marry more wives).


For Deuteronomy, the part of instructions given to Kings didn't applaud polygamy.


If you read 1 Corinthians, it said each man his own wife... each woman her own husband

From 1 Timothy 12 ; You'll noticed the words wife and children. Wife been singular but, kept that way. (Even though, polygamy exist ) Children been plural but, kept that way. (Even though a possibility for a family to have just one.)


In polygamy, do 3 or 5 or 14 becomes one flesh?

A man and a woman are one (married, monogamy)

Let me put the question like this; If I marry two women will I go to hell.

Well God bless man with one woman, and he said they would be one. If something isn't in line with that then it's against that. Those who doesn't go in line (against) will likely seek hell. ( I am not the judge or whatsoever).
