In modern times we have a liberal cause that invokes the yoking of many beliefs about our communion and community. With times changing rapidly we have an abrubt focus on the truth to the life we share in Christ. There is alot of media today that caters to unconventional relationships outside of marriage. There is alot of diverse opinions about the Lords faith. The institute of church and state has taken on many changes. Yet God never changes. There are ministers who are gay and lesbian who profess to be the Lords ministers. There are woman ministers although the scriptures state God would not suffer a woman with authority in the church. There are alot of opinions. My own opininion to the topic of polygomy I wanted to share. I consider it more of an insightfull opinion than a scientific theology.
The world is and has been for many generations known to be adulterous. Modern times bring us to the peak of means to meet one another for casual encounters. The porn industry is a very large industry. Internet dating is used by millions of unmarried and married people.
We have been in conflict with cultures that allow polygomy to some degree. In our society a man is allowed to have as many sex partners as he wants and still hold office as an executive or employer. Not many employees have probably ever been fired for having to many girlfriends. However having to many wives that is punishable by the state. The matter of Polygomy is not really Law. The purpose of law doesnt serve the Lords justice. Christ told us Love is the Law. Our marriage to Jesus Christ is the reason The Lord requires us to chaste and true to his covenant. Our spiritual marriage as the body of christ and his bride. The marriage of our soul is not male to female. Our spirit is neither male or female. Life in the spirit calls for us to no longer live according to the flesh. Many wives would be contradictive to the scriptures telling us to no longer live serving our flesh. There is no way to judge someone for having many wives but our communion and covenant with the Lord is not our own covenants we make in marriage or with each other. Its the Lords and his way of life is the soveriegn and true example we are to follow. He is the truth, the life , and the way. I am sure God will judge us not according to laws but according to our Love for Jesus and his church . He will judge us according to our works of faith and not our work that provided for our family and friends. He judge us according to the fruits of the spirit. Not according to the bank accounts and our own ability to reproduce. If we desire a large family and want to share life with many woman I think Christs suffering and crucifixion is enough example to let us believe there is more to life than meets the eye. He is our source for life. He is married to his church and has abundant life to give. Who is that faithfull and true to Jesus that they dont sin in their heart. Doesnt one marriage have enough challenges to overcome. Our victory in Jesus is victory over sin and death. Why would the Lord lead us into temptation to use our body's for immoral lusts and not as instruments of his righteousness and Love. I wish I could have many wives and live it up. However I fear God and Love the life he gives more than the life the world has to offer. Anything is possible with God. So I am sure one way or the other if a person seeks the Lord he will have a fullfilling life and lots of companionship. Lets not strain our brain on the issue and let Jesus be the authority its his throne not ours.
"The body is not meant for sexual immorality, but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body." [I Corinthians 6:13] "Therefore, honor God with your body." [I Corinthians 6:20]
that at the beginning the Creator 'made them male and female,' and said, 'For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh'? So they are no longer two, but one. Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate." [Matthew 19:4-6; see also Genesis 1:27 and Genesis 2:24; Ephesians 5:31]
