Why is the truth
about polygamy suppressed? Fear and maintenance of the status quo are
both big suppressors of truth.
The way many Christians express their reactions to this subject are
appalling, vicious and sadly self condemning.
We have suffered verbal
abuse, ridicule and condemnation in language less than "gracious" by
those who would stand up in other circles and profess to be Christians
in thought word and deed, and are applauded for their claims. But this
topic brings out their deeper colours because in some way it threatens
or exposes some things otherwise well concealed. Who can understand why
some Christians turn full circle in Christian attitude when this
marriage option is discussed.
Christians who discuss this with their
"church" hierarchy discover that there are some who agree with
us but say
nothing publicly to that effect. Indeed, many agree polygamy is Scriptural
but few Christian communities discuss it openly, tell the truth about
it, or attempt to remove the darkened coloring hitherto so wrongfully
applied to it.
"Churches" simply can't about face on major doctrine for loss of
credibility is not an easy river to cross. Many "church" leaders might
confess privately that polygamy is acceptable to God but when was a
balanced presentation of polygamy on the preaching schedule at your
"church"? It is time for organized orthodox religion to place God's Word
first in this matter and discard the profane arguments that have kept
the truth obscured from the faithful.
More and more Christians are prepared to stand with God’s Word on this
Word of Jehovah is right; and all His works are in truth.
sanctified marriage and some believers now live the lifestyle without the
“blessings” of organized religion or state. The blind man fellowshipped
with the Son of God after he had been evicted from the synagogue (John
9). Polygamy is sound marriage doctrine.
