A supposedly professing born again Believer on the interent discussion he next also wrongfully has said " ....As for polygamy, the Bible is not on your side. The Bible gives no specific condemnation of polygamy. " This same person now advocates that we all do have NOW HAVE no right to condemn any polygamist cause it is a mutually consentual sexual act and this it was now ok to do and he also wrongfully had said it was not condemned in the New testament, and all according to him. He also said " I am talking about ( wrongfully) IMPOSING anti-polygamous views on those who practice it. Preaching out against their actions is not the same as FORCING them to follow your moral values." and he also said "So quit reading into the Bible to make it say things it doesn't say, and quit setting up YOUR moral standards as though all should follow what you believe. " all while he next imposed his own clearly rubbish moral values on the others still. (In all my years of being a Christian I have not heard such rubbish as this, never and never, nor seen a bad Christian like this too. It was unbelievable to me still )
Whereas THE BIBLE , THE NEW TESTAMENT MAKES IT CLEAR THAT EACH MAN WAS TO HAVE ONE WIFE, AND THAT THE ELDERS, DEACONS ALSO WHERE TO HAVE ONE WIFE ONLY. And the wife was not to divorce, leave her husband (singular), and the Husband was not to divorce leave his wife, (singular). That was why it is called a New Testament still and not the Old Testament. He next really did not like anyone pointing this out to all.Polygamy is wrong because it necessarily involves adultery. That is why it is not specifically banned anywhere in the New testament Bible - because it is covered by the laws that deal with adultery. If you have sex with someone other than your wife then it is adultery, and simply going through a ceremony, even if it is legally valid, cannot make that second woman into a wife in the eyes of God. Adultery is stealing the sex that does not belong to you, it belongs to another man or women.
99.9 percent of the Christians have never practiced polygamy for centuries now too alone should have been quite explicit the clear condemnation of polygamy.Even sex outside of marriage, or lusting with another women, even while it may be consensual is also still sinful. Just cause it is consensual does not mean any act between two persons is not sinful. Even the sole act of masturbation is a sinful act. Catholics church with it own imperfections too does teach that the act of sex is only for the procreation of children, and in their teachings clearly now they are not sexual maniacs like the too often, or the too many Protestants and evangelicals, who realtedly also wrongfully tend to wrongfully practice, counsel divorce and like to keep divorce options in case they find someone they might like to have better sex with. http://groups.msn.com/CanadaToday3/hypocrisyii.msnwPolygamy is a clearly an adulterous immoral act. What even makes these acts sinful is that the people involved are not only harming themselves, going clearly against God's present and original intent, they are also likely next corrupting, harming the others as it was pointed out . One reasons even the sinful act of smoking is now being banned by the governments of all things world wide. By using an ostrich approach, he is not condemning any of these immoral acts openly now and he becomes a wrongful, immoral participator in these immoralities, even by imposing, advocating and teaching others to be like him thus he also is now are still committing these immoral and unchristian act indirectly. (Rev 2:20 KJV) Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols.
Clearly, polygamy is unscriptural. God created (1) man and (1) woman to be united. God didnít simultaneously create (1) man to be united with 2-3, or more women. Anyone who argues in favor of polygamy is clearly a follower of Satan.
Note the unacceptable abuses that occur within the polygamous societies such as incest, statutory rape, underage marriage, welfare fraud, tax evasion, lack of education, trafficking of minors across boarders for the purpose of sex, medical neglect, and extreme forms of domestic abuse & mental torture. we must not forget the tens of thousands of polygamous children and adults who are being coerced into this Taliban way of life. without any regard for the polygamous women and children whose human rights are being violated. The Mormons who now also pretend to be Christians and many do know they are not. In fact neither of them are real Christians that now is undeniable too Historically, biblically In the new testament times, Bible there was no practice of polygamy amongst any of the Christians or the apostles, church leaders.
(Mat 7:16 KJV) Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? 17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. 19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
GOD STILL DOES PUNISH THE SIN OF ADULTERY/POLYGAMY
(2 Pet 2:13 KJV) And shall receive the reward of unrighteousness, as they that count it pleasure to riot in the day time. Spots they are and blemishes, sporting themselves with their own deceivings while they feast with you; 14 Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from sin; beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have exercised with covetous practices; cursed children: 15 Which have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness; 16 But was rebuked for his iniquity: the dumb ass speaking with man's voice forbad the madness of the prophet. 17 These are wells without water, clouds that are carried with a tempest; to whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever. 18 For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness, those that were clean escaped from them who live in error. 19 While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage. 20 For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning. 21 For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them. 22 But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.(Heb 11:4 KJV) By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaketh.(1 John 3:12 KJV) Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother's righteous.
