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.
Thank you.



Let's be very straight forward.....
Please did the person do the traditional marriage rites to completion on each of the wives inclusive of paying the dowry on each of them......


Now that he is a born again....are the wives also now born again?

Am sorry I got these late. Everything about marriage was completed and all bride prize fully paid.

No they are not born again yet. Only their husband is a born again.

they are all your wives
there is no where God said u cant have more than one wife

I believe this should be the right answer. Because I have been thinking about it daily. The Bible also said that whosoever marry a divorce woman have committed adultery.

Are they going to remain unmarried If they were sent away? to me I think it is wickedness.

That's why I bring up the case here.

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? undecided

Heaven recognizes only your first wife. Send the rest away. This is called marriage restitution. If you don't, you will only be living in adultery. Thanks.

What Heaven? undecided

Did you miss the part where Jesus Christ told you that your marriages are of this world and not of His Kingdom? undecided

Marriage restitution? Where dem teach you that kind jargon? undecided

Jesus Christ warned you that if you put away your wife for any reason other than fornication, you are guilty of adultery, but instead you dey here dey talk jargon wey your Mog fill your brain with you dey call marriage restitution? undecided

No they are not born again yet. Only their husband is a born again.

Okay. It would be nice if he as the head of the house/ family can get them inclusive of the children to become the new person he is in Christ Jesus.

They will remain his wives till he is called by His creator.

Please note that at this new birth he cannot get married to a 4th wife if he so wishes.

Shalom.

First of all who told you that you're now born again?
What makes you think a born again Christian can't have multiple wives? smiley
Princewell2012:

Somebody should help out please, it is urgent.
Well if you sincerely want to know the way forward then let's consider the scriptures together.
When God created the earth he made so many creatures but only one is made to share God's qualities: LOVE, POWER, JUSTICE and WISDOM. Genesis 2:26


If humans should continue taking in life saving counsels from the Creator they will live forever just as their heavenly father lives. Luke 4:4
Sadly the first human couple chose to rebel against their Creator and He told them the consequences of their actions! Genesis 2:17, 3:19
How do we reconnect with our heavenly father? How do we regain His blessings?
Well those questions will be for some other time what matters now is: Why must a Christian stick to the standard God set for marriage in the beginning? Matthew 19:4
The simple answer is: Jesus Christ has come to reconnect Adam's descendants back to their heavenly father, the garden out of which God sent Adam and Eve will be brought back but this time the whole earth will become like Eden that's what Jesus meant by Paradise. Luke 23:43


But all those who want to get there must humble themselves for divine wisdom {Zephaniah 2:2-3} God promised that the inhabitants of Paradise will never experience injustice of any kind {Psalms 37:7-11; Proverbs 2:20-22} so a Christian (prospective citizen of God's kingdom) must start planning how to live in Paradise now! Luke 13:24

There was no servant of God with more than one wife in peace. WHY? A man must love his wife as himself {Ephesians 5:28,33} so if you will not tolerate rivalry why getting a rival for the woman you love? Matthew 7:12 smiley

So if you've already gotten three women under your roof before learning about Paradise, the next step is to stop commiting ADULTRY with the other two women.

You must keep the love you have for your first wife in mind {Proverbs 5:18} and as for the other two adulterers you must continue to take responsibility over them and their children because you're the cause of their predicament.

For I hate divorce,” says Jehovah the God of Israel, “and the one who covers his garment with violence,” says Jehovah of armies. “And guard yourselves respecting your spirit, and you must not deal treacherously. Malachi 2:16

You must not deal TREACHEROUSLY with your wife because you promised to love her!

The other two adulteresses will have to bear the grief because they are evil! WHY are they evil? Because they came to do to their neighbour what they themselves will not permit under normal circumstances {Matthew 7:12} all that is in the past now when this light has not been revealed but they must find their own way either by keeping their bodies or going to marry someone else. A Christian must not continue having sex with multiple partners otherwise he will not see Paradise where God designed for ONE man (Adam) and ONE woman (Eve)

God bless you and may you have PEACE! smiley

Keep them in love and truth. Let God direct your steps in handling the situation. This is a complex situation don't listen to what anyone is telling you here, let God direct your steps and it shall be well with you.

"Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge him and he'll direct your path"

So are you saying people don't have something within telling them to go ahead in everything they are doing?
If God is directing everyone without someone to teach them God's word, then what's the need for congregating together and why do God's holy spirit distribute gifts as TEACHING and SHEPHERDING? Ephesians 4:11-12 undecided
Just say each person should do as his heart guides him because if God will guide you then you must take in wise counsel tailored by God's word! Ephesians 6:17

May you have PEACE! smiley

Have you been in his shoe before? Like I said earlier this is a complex situation, He needs God's direction on how to handle it, not just random talk from anyone who claims to know Bible.

So you must have been through every situation before you can present God's judicial decisions shey? cheesy

Na wah o! What then is the usefulness of God's word (Bible) 2Timothy 3:16-17

Well don't let me give you any headache, i'm one of JEHOVAH'S WITNESSES, in our organization everyone must bow to whatever is decided upon after a thorough meditation on what is written in the Bible {Act 2:42} that's why we're all united in the same line of thought {1Corinthians 1:10 compare to John 17:20-23} and you can never find one member of our organization having more than one wife throughout the earth! John 4:24

Thanks! smiley

Hmm I think am more hooked in between. Righteousness2 said I should send the three of them away, that they are not my wife, and onother person suggested that I should keep the three of them since they are properly married. I think I need the Holy Spirit to help me out to get things right. mind you am not the person in particular someone brought it up to me to address.

The guy who said keep all three didn’t only answer you from the point of the God’s Law but answered you logically, and it made logical sense to you and you had peace after you read it; why listen to someone who answered you by shooting bullets without hitting the target and you declared him logical and right.

Do you know the meaning of “Go and sin no more”? It means everything you have done before the point of atonement is not accounted against you; only those done thereafter will. So, marrying three wives is not regarded as sin before the Lord but what you do (covenant breaking) against those women will be against you. Israel experienced three years of drought because of covenant breaking, and God stood on the side of those who were defrauded (I am taking about the case of the Gibeonites against Israel).

Any effort to forcefully send those women away will not the cause the will of God - righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Ghost, to be done. Just walk with God and He will make a way,

Have a nice weekend

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.


Honestly to me this seem to me to be the best answer so far. How can you tell me to sent my wives away for no just reason because am born again. God bless you dearly.

Even in the kingdom of heaven there is nothing like marriage or given someone out in marriage.
What matters to to God here on this earth is for us to make it to heaven. God bless you once again.

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.

Even at that why will you send them away because you wanted to be a bishop or deacon?

Hmm is this a Joke or what? what do you mean by Christian marriage?



At least we are supposed to emulate Jesus , is that not the meaning of Christian?

If yes. Who is the wife of Jesus, Paul, Peter and all the apostles of Jesus where are there wife and children? Am talking about their physical wives and children?
.we are just shouting Christan marriage up and down.

So a man that use his money to marry when he is not a Christian have committed adultery. chai.


Wonder shall never end.

I love your input here. God bless you. But I still have my reservation though. Am not completely comfortable when you called my other two wives adulterers take it from me. They are not husband snatchers they were staying in their houses and I went their to seek for their hands in marriage and evey gadem things were done regarding to marriage rite. so how are they adulterers and husband snatchers.?
Re: Am now a born again, should I sent my three wives away? by MaxInDHouse(m): 4:57pm On May 01
True Christians believe every word protruding out of the mouth of God's son. Jesus said "whatever you want people to do to you do so to them" Matthew 7:12
A righteous person will sue you once she finds out that you're already married, immediately she knows after your marriage because she will not like to do what she won't accept under normal circumstances!
So they are thieves, robbers, adulterers and murderers, because what they did will still lead to rivalries between their children, they will start dragging for inheritance and in the course kill one another, so whoever participate in establishing such arrangement is guilty of whatever evil deeds occur due to polygamy!

That's the way Jesus teaches us to view matters not just from a myopic point of view! smiley

Any man who has more than one wife cannot be fit to be ordained as a deacon or elder. Telling him to send one wife away is a man made doctrine in disguise.
