Another argument used against polygamy is the “no ‘church’ approves”
position. In other words, because the majority of “orthodox” believers

Polygamy is not a sin because churches don't approve, God alone defines
sin, not any priest or pastor.
The seeker of truth will ask, “what says the Lord”? The Lord has made
His position very clear, polygamy is approved by Him.
