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).

The thing is that it isn't explicitly stated in the Bible that marrying more than one woman leads to hell, but if your assertion is true then Abdon, Abijah, Abraham, Ahab Ahasuerus, Ashur, Belshazzar, Benhadad Caleb, David, Eliphaz, Elkanah, Esau, Ezra Gideon, Heman, Hosea, Ibzan, Issachar, Jacob, Jair, Jehoiachin, Jehoram, Jerahmeel, Joash, Lamech, Machir Manasseh, Mered, Moses, Nahor, Rehoboam, Saul, Shaharaim, Shimei, Simeon, Solomon, Terah, Zedekiah, Ziba and a host of others are all burning in hell rn, note that some of them wrote some of the books in the Bible.

All lot of flaws in the olden days, many where blind, many do not understand.
The holy family could be a good example to start. ( Joseph, Mary and Jesus ). Notice when the Sadducees tried to trap Jesus in Matthew 22:25-32, you'll notice it's just one man and one woman thing. Since Jesus came and did his ministry, you'll notice a diverse change in marital and relationship teachings and the likes.


Another thing is contentment, why would anyone want to marry more than one woman? one man, one woman is what God has in line for us.

I don't think polygamy is a sin though scriptures is not explicit about it. One woman is naturally not enough for a man. However, I prefer monogamy to polygamy for Economic reason.

he replied, “that at the
beginning the Creator ‘made them male and
female,’ 5 and said, ‘For this reason a man
will leave his father and mother and be
united to his wife, and the two will become
one flesh’ ? 6 So they are no longer two, but
one. Therefore what God has joined together,
let man not separate.”

Matthew 19 4-6

They are no longer “two”, not no longer
3, 4, 5 or more.

Two (couple) were usually specific even though man or woman have the possibility of adding more, unlike children; child is possible but, children are usually consider as there are possibility of adding more to the family.

In the olden days, some even have mistress, concubines and probably maiden but, now the New testament shows more explanations and a better understanding.

For peace to reign then, its 50 - 50, I slap you n you slap me back (it is written) but, the New testament tried to show them a better understanding of things.
Now back, to the main question. It's Monogamy that is the default way, anything else I'm not sure of where it's coming from, just do the simple one God have given to us, like he did for Adam, just a wife.


For economical reason you say wink reminds me of a saying "more holes to your pockets"

A quick check through your profile and it seems you're going through a lot, your transfer of aggression on to me on a topic that needs no aggression is simply you venting and trying to seek attention, you're probably borderline suicidal. Well I'd tell you something; the proper way to end your sorrows, poverty and frustrations in life would be for you to simply end your pathetic life, drink sniper, jump in a lake or slit your wrists....just kindly fvck off from this thread. Thanks.

Re: Is Polygamy Really Against Christain Laws? by Sarita01(f): 4:39pm On Dec 31, 2020
TheLionofLasigi:


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.

there's no place in the Bible that says polygamy is a sin, using the singular "wife" or "woman" means absolutely nothing, the Bible doesn't straight out support polygamy neither does it straight out support monogamy.

marriage in the Bible is just a means of curbing fornication and also for procreation, and as far as I'm concerned the second reason, man was created is for procreation, it doesn't matter the number of women a man uses to achieve that aim, as long as he does it through the right means.

The old testament supported polygamy, jesus' ancestor david had many wives, Solomon had many wives, infact Jesus came from a long line of polygamists.

Those people saying that polygamy was only in the old testament, seems to forget that Jesus said he didn't come to abolish the law or the prophets but he came to fulfil them(Matt 5:17), just my own opinion tho.
