|Re: Am now a born again, should I sent my three wives away? by Kobojunkiee: 7:56pm On Apr 25|
gaddafe:Sex within a marriage is not considered sexual sin. Polygamy....I am yet to find where Almighty God declares it a sin anywhere in scripture...extrabiblical scripture also considered
Keeping of concubines is however fornication/sexual sin.

Praxis758:Where in the Bible does God inform you that consent of parents is necessary before a man and woman can become one?

The OP is an hypothetical question and you and yours already have your own self will so why this joke? Anyways, on a general level and for those who may be one way or the other genuinely affected. The situation is that such a couple/marriage is pretty much useless in a New Testament church or for any tangible work in the body of Christ. It is also important for the affected to take care of all the children. The teaching of the Bible concerning marriage is that TWO become ONE. THREE or FOUR do not become ONE. They are housemates and housemates they shall remain until death. Now that you are repented, you still need to be responsible for your mistakes. You will still be "married" to them if you claim to be LEGALLY married and vowed to them. Let me ask you, the Samaritan woman at the well, who "legally" had five husbands. Will you advice her to keep sleeping with her five husbands after her encounter with Jesus?
Joh 4:17 The woman answered and said, I have no husband. Jesus said unto her, Thou hast well said, I have no husband:
Joh 4:18 For thou hast had five husbands; and he whom thou now hast is not thy husband: in that saidst thou truly.

Righteousness2:Well done sir. What happens to who marries the wives sent away? Bros, sending them away is only applicable if the husband wants to be a bishop or else it is woe to whoever marries the wives sent away.
|Re: Am now a born again, should I sent my three wives away? by Kobojunkiee: 12:00am On Apr 26|
xtivin:And you assume even that there is sanctioned by God Himself?
God said do not put away your wife except in the case of fornication, yet you think that the same God would smile at you when you seek to divorce your wife simply because you want a"Bishop" title?
|Re: Am now a born again, should I sent my three wives away? by Praxis758: 12:25am On Apr 26|
That's amounting to wilful sinning after receiving knowledge of truth.
Hebrew 10 : 26 - 27.
26. For if we sin willfully after we have received the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins,
27. But a certain fearful expectation of judgment, and fiery indignation which will devour the adversaries.
|Re: Am now a born again, should I sent my three wives away? by Kobojunkiee: 1:07am On Apr 26|
Praxis758:The marrying of another wife amounts to willful sinning after receiving what Truth?
Where is this truth written of in the Bible?
|Re: Am now a born again, should I sent my three wives away? by Kobojunkiee: 7:30pm On Apr 26|
livingchrist:Where does God declare this in scripture?
|Re: Am now a born again, should I sent my three wives away? by perezeghi: 2:30am On Apr 27|
Your question is if you have 3 wives?
My question to you........
If you are legally married to them .......through which institution(s)?
Was it done to completion?
Now you claim to be born again......who brought you to the knowledge of Christ Jesus your Redeemer?
What is his/her input on this question of yours?
Your responses will guide me on my next.
At the back of your mind just know that Scripture is vast and it goes beyond the wisdom of men. It is prepared and written by God that the reasonings and futile thoughts of men may remain insignificant to the power of the Most High God.
|Re: Am now a born again, should I sent my three wives away? by Princewell2012(m): 1:41pm On Apr 27|
perezeghi:Am finding it difficult to get your question.
my question is clear, am not actually the one in question.
Again let me understand your own meaning of being legally married.
let me repeat my self again.
If I have three wives when am still in the world and I paid their bride prize and every ceremonies were completed.
Now that an a born again, do I sent them away?
I will be glad to receive your response . God bless you .
Please don't forget they all have children for me.
|Re: Am now a born again, should I sent my three wives away? by felixzo1(m): 1:47pm On Apr 27|
Princewell2012:traditionally married and Christian marriages are different. to the best of my knowledge you are not married
|Re: Am now a born again, should I sent my three wives away? by Princewell2012(m): 1:53pm On Apr 27|
Hmm I haven't got any satisfactory answer yet .
|Re: Am now a born again, should I sent my three wives away? by Princewell2012(m): 1:58pm On Apr 27|
This is the highest joke I have ever seen here.
So you mean all those married before the death of Jesus and even the one Jesus himself attended have committed adultery
|Re: Am now a born again, should I sent my three wives away? by felixzo1(m): 2:04pm On Apr 27|
Princewell2012:unfortunately they were not Christians, but Jews and they had their law and customs, Christianity support only and and wife. only right from the early Christians to date.( if you want ask me where it is written in the Bible) I believe God will judge everyone in Fairless and truth. in this exams everyone has a different question paper .I summary its between you , your God and your conscience
|Re: Am now a born again, should I sent my three wives away? by Princewell2012(m): 5:08pm On Apr 27|
felixzo1:you have not answered my question. my question is those who married before Jesus did they commit adultery. After all sin of adultery have been in existence before Jesus coming to the earth.
That I should send my wives and children away because am a Christian. Any one who got married to those women did they not commit adultery. Mind you their parents williyfully gave them out for marriage
|Re: Am now a born again, should I sent my three wives away? by WILLuKPquiet: 6:07pm On Apr 27|
This will sound like an heresy but it's my opinion and understanding of the bible. As long as you being celibate for life doesn't affect your eternity so does your eternity not attached to how many wives you have.
As long as they are wives and not concubines.
What is important is are you truly born again? Are you trying your best to please the Lord? (no one is perfect) And are your family members born agains too.
There is no place where the Bible says one wife one man. I may be wrong o and I want who ever can show me where it is written that "thou shall not marry more than one wife" to point it out to me.
We are all learning daily.
The whites brought along their culture with the Bible when they came and Africans bought into it all including monogamy and dressing.
Jesus said when "He made them He made them a man and a woman". That doesn't mean he said man can not marry more than one wife.
"This why a man shall leave his parents and cling to his wife and why a woman shall leave her family and cling to her husband" this is one of the verses that scholars use for arguments. They claim if God wanted a man to have more than one wife, the sentence would have been "this is why a man shall leave his parents and cling to his WIVES" Well, the argument sounds nice and logical but have they forgotten that each of the wives is a wife not wives. So, the Bible doesn't need to use a plural for each of them.
When Paul was addressing the church he said, "He who wants to be a Bishop, Deacon and leader among you should be a man of one wife"
He said that to those who want to lead in the church not all the congregation. And why?
To be good leaders, you must be a good example and not one the church elders will be settling quarrels for every now and then because of the wives. (It is not easy to mage a woman not to talk of two or three)
But if you know you can take care of your wives as a Christian and still live a holy life and train your kids on the way of the Lord then, go ahead.
Now to your questions about sending the wives away.
You will be evil if you do so. You saw them, wooed them, made promises to them just to divorce them. That's evil.
Would their living with you affect your worship to the Lord.
Preach the gospel to them. Get them born again, and live your lives for God.
|Re: Am now a born again, should I sent my three wives away? by livingchrist: 7:42pm On Apr 27|
Princewell2012:let them take care of their children but continue your fatherly role to them.
Polygamy, and divorce where not God's perfect will, it was enforce because of hardness of heart.
|Re: Am now a born again, should I sent my three wives away? by LisaAnneMia: 8:38pm On Apr 27|
Princewell2012:Hi dear. I've heard of a case like this before. Cast this care upon Jesus and leave it to Him to handle. The case I heard of, it was the women who left themselves after he committed the situation into God's hands. It wasn't an immediate result but gradual... the first wife was left with him. Don't make decisions based on human advice or understanding. Let God lead you to make the right decisions. I believe everything will sort itself out. Don't make hasty decisions that you'll regret. Follow the promptings or leadings of the Holy Spirit. Allow your Abba Father to handle this.
|Re: Am now a born again, should I sent my three wives away? by Kobojunkiee: 8:51pm On Apr 27|
LisaAnneMia:The women who left in the case you described sinned against God, so are you suggesting that God had a hand in their sin?
|Re: Am now a born again, should I sent my three wives away? by LisaAnneMia: 9:00pm On Apr 27|
Kobojunkiee:The women were unbelievers. They weren't interested anymore and they left. So how's that God's fault?
|Re: Am now a born again, should I sent my three wives away? by livingchrist: 9:03pm On Apr 27|
LisaAnneMia:Do this op, pray about it let God lead you.

LisaAnneMia:Just trying to understand where God fits into the whole deal is all.
So, God had absolutely nothing to do with the other wives choosing to leave, and it was not that the man frustrated them out of some guilt that they eventually decided to pack up and leave?
I ask because if in this guy's case, his wives do not make the move to leave, he does not maybe take it to mean God is against him, or something of that sort.
|Re: Am now a born again, should I sent my three wives away? by LisaAnneMia: 9:14pm On Apr 27|
Kobojunkiee:So every human should make decisions without bringing God to the picture? He should just go on ahead with whatever decisions without honouring God in his actions? I don't need to continue this discussion.
Op, I pray you do the right thing and allow the Holy Spirit lead you in making the right decision.
|Re: Am now a born again, should I sent my three wives away? by Kobojunkiee: 9:18pm On Apr 27|
LisaAnneMia:The Op is here asking of God's view on this supposed issue of his.
You told a tale of some other guy who supposedly came to know God in similar situation, and of how afterwards, his wives left him. And I am trying to understand how and if God played any real part in the man's wives eventually abandoning him.
|Re: Am now a born again, should I sent my three wives away? by LisaAnneMia: 9:23pm On Apr 27|
Kobojunkiee:At the bolded, clearly he can't get it from humans.
|Re: Am now a born again, should I sent my three wives away? by Kobojunkiee: 9:33pm On Apr 27|
LisaAnneMia:He can't get it from humans?
So humans do not know what God declared as sin from that which He did not?

This is why I always tell people to run away from religion(Chrislamjew). 70% of many things that happened in the scriptures they don't know. Get a good bible and study yourself, the truth will come to you.
Marriage is a covenant right and we could also call it Gods commandment. He never specified how many we should marry. Yea, in the Torah, many had wives and even concubine yet the creator loved them and even called one, a man after his heart and another his friend. One can have many wives and still be righteous. So if you decide to put away 2 of the wives, you have broken a covenant and God's command which is sin. The scripture says " sin is the transgression of the law".
Go and meet your pastor, tell him you took a vow when you married those women and if you breach it by putting away 2 of them you will sin and break God's command. If he disagree and say it's a lie that you should put them away.....RUN AWAY from that church! If thou vow a thing........you must fulfil it.
