Bible monogamy only? Are there Scriptures against polygamy? The answer
to both these questions is NO!
was a gross wickedness or adultery as some Christians claim, then it
should be a simple matter to produce passages from the Word of God which
clearly say so. Unfortunately for opponents such passages do not exist.
In this section we shall examine the Scriptural gymnastics employed by
opponents as they try to show polygamy in a bad light. They claim that
Jacob was a backslider when he was given all those wives, that there
have always been bad consequences of plural marriages, that God is a
monogamous God in his relationship with Israel, that polygamy was the
consequence of sin or the hardness of menís hearts, that God permitted
polygamy in the OT but it was never His "perfect" will, that "the two
shall be one flesh" can only refer to one husband with one wife and that Paul
demanded men should be the husband of one wife along with some
other spurious and profane arguments that do not stand up in the light
of the rightly divided Word of Truth.
the reader beware, to label polygamy fornication, adultery or some other
gross wickedness implicates God in such things, for God ordained a form
of polygamy, made laws for polygamy, spoke of having two wives Himself
and gave David extra wives.
Would you welcome Christ into your home or church?
Would you welcome Christ and King David into your home or church?
Would you welcome Christ, King David and his 10 concubines into your
home or church?
If you say yes to two out of three, then you are blinded by the
traditions of men and need to seriously re-examine polygyny.
Be prepared to fellowship with plural
families in the day of glory where our Lord will accept them into His
Polygamy is not sin.
