Blog Reader Asks; Maybe God Meant For Men To Be Polygamous?





I know somebody raised a similar question a while back but mine is quite different. I'm female but sometimes I wonder if God really meant for men to be monogamous? If you look in the Bible even those great men He blessed had more than one. Look at Abraham and his wife's maid, look at David who sent someone to be killed so that he can have his wife, look at Solomon and his many wives and concubines? Yet God still singled these men out and blessed them greatly. I know they were all in the Old Testament but that doesn't change the fact that they were greatly blessed and till today they are the ones Christians remember, and use as a point of reference when praying. 
     I know that when a woman loves a married man everybody hates her and calls her names but things are not so black and white, besides it's not all men that set out to break their vows and hurt their wives, some of them genuinely love the wife but still fall in love with someone else. Some men are capable of loving and caring for more than one woman. All these things make me wonder if this isn't how God intended things to be.

  1. Everyone biko permit me to be pissed at this poster!!! Arrrrrrrrrrrrrhhhhhhhhhhgggg!

    I'm fine now. But it seems U are trying to go all Olivia Pope on Us. Endorsing Adultery & Polygamy! LOL.
    Dear Poster How many wives did God give Adam?
    Yes, in the mosaic law God didn't specifically ask the Isrealites to marry 1 wife, but Jesus Christ who's the ONLY way to Salvation after his Ransom sacrifice, (dying for us) abolished some of those laws & adjusted others!
    ONE Man,ONE wife till death do them part.
    Men were not created to be polygamous else God would have supported that by Givin Adam more than One wife!
    Stay Off people's Boyfriends, Fiance's & Husbands so Karma won't Bobo juice U!

  7. ? Listen, you're obviously a christian and the bible is unequivocal about the sanctity of marriage. Even if you weren't a christian, you know its morally wrong! Put yourself in the shoes of his wife, imagine bein married to someone, and making sacrifices, whether big or small, and then you realise that the muhfuka been 'gettn it' with some side chick...
    You said things are not always black and white, that's true, but not in this case o..sleeping with a married person no matter what your reason is, is wrong and everyone knows it, except maybe you, Olivia Pope and my cousin Ify (no she doesn't sleep with a married man, she just roots for Olivia and the president)

  8. It's funny but u miss what she said. No one is arguing whether he shld have another wife. All what she's saying is: A man can have a wife and still hv a side chick. After all it says One man,One wife (not excluding mistresses/side chicks?)
    I'm not supporting anything but then again ur quote didn't rule out side chicks. My own P is when these chicks begin to drag right with the wife or when the man considers them for 2nd wife.
    I wld always support a man being faithful and all but when he isn't? Do u open the bible and show him quotes he don't already know?
    Never totally blame the chicks,blame a philandering husband!

  9. Ermmm, why is everyone hating on Olivia pope now? Though I dnt support Olivia pope's actions in scandal,i still.kinda like her personality.....she seems broken without even been aware of it

    That said, the Bible doesn't support polygamy,fornication,adultery,polyandry, bigamy and it's likes. Just talk to Him, the One who originated relationships, He will give you that which is exclusively yours.Seriously, you need not share.

    1. Permit me to ask. The lady who was nearly stoned for committing adultery,was she single/married? I'll go with married cos if she was single,then it means nobody back then had 2nd wives.
      Now,why didn't Christ ask for the partner in crime knowing fully well it takes 2 to tango?
      If Christ spared that side chick/married woman from being stoned to death for adultery,i donno why all of u here are quoting and unquoting o.

    2. Yes He spared her but what did He say to her in the end? "Go and sin no more"

    3. Yh,but was she single or married?

  11. Some women are capable of loving and caring for more than one man.So what are you saying. Why are you defending only the men abi you are meeting one by the corner. The truth is, a married man or woman does not have immunity from loving other people, but when you take a vow you keep to it and keep away from all sources of temptation. Be you a man or a woman.J

  12. I didn't know how to *present my case* on this post before because it's not a straightforward topic, buy now I think I can try.

    For those who think that GOD sanctioned the "One man One wife" rule may not be far from the truth, but still...very far. The only place in the Bible that it's seems like a rule is when Eve was created and it was said that a man takes a woman and they become One. Other areas in the Bible, especially the New Testament, focuses on marriages mainly between a man and a woman. But then, has anyone noticed GOD sending HIS prophets or priests to condemn polygamy or promising such a thing is displeasing to HIM in any way? Even when Israel became a Nation such laws weren't seen. The laws on marriage prohibits adultery and taking another's wife.

    In the New Testament the ONLY place a law on a single wife is stated is 1Timothy 3:2, where it's stated that a Bishop must have only one wife. That aside, isn't it confusing how GOD, while rebuking David after he committed adultery, reminded him that HE gave him Saul's WIVES, and would have given him MORE WIVES if he had asked? Wow. Even Muslims are advised to take One Wife, but out of benevolence (and probably to reduce suffering among women) they can take in three more.

    If we want to then talk about the things GOD prefers in relation to marriage I'll say HE prefers we all remain single. Saint Paul gives marriage importance because to him, it's only necessary in quenching sexual emotions. Notice also in Exodus 19:15, when the Israelites prepared to receive the Covenant, were asked to abstain from sexual intercourse.

    So I'll say the One Man One Wife Rule is a tradition of the Church, and as Christians, we're bound to obey the Church: "whatever you consider bound/lost on earth is bound/lost in Heaven"-Matt 16:19. Is doesn't mean that those who married more than one wife are condemned, it means GOD'S preference to human relationships fall from Single-Monogamy-Polygamy...in that order. But like I said in my previous comment, excuses to satisfy certain urges will overcome the will to please GOD. Lol. Stay blessed everyone.

    1. Yaa I feel you Memphis but the poster isn't talking about polygamy in the sense of marriage where both women are aware of the situation, she's talking about dudes keeping a wife and a sidechick.

  13. Hello Everyone,
    I am Mrs Theresa Wallcott Owen, from mexico. My life became devastated when my husband sent me packing, after 17 years that we have been together. I was lost and helpless after trying so many ways to make my husband take me back. One day at work, i was absent minded not knowing that my boss was calling me, so he sat and asked me what its was all about i told him and he smiled and said that it was not a problem. I never understand what he meant by it wasn't a problem getting my husband back, he said he used a spell to get his wife back when she left him for another man and now they are together till date and at first i was shocked hearing such thing from my boss. He gave me an email address of the spell caster who helped him get his wife back, i never believed this would work but i had no choice that to get in contact with the spell caster which i did, and he requested for my information and that of my husband along with our marriage pic. He also told me that i was going to pay the sum of $170 to enable him cast the spell and i sent him the money, but after three days, my mom called my that my husband came pleading that he wants me back, i never believed it because it was just like a dream and i had to rush down to my mothers place and to my greatest surprise, my husband was kneeling before me pleading for forgiveness that he wants me and the kid back home, then i gave Dr. Okirika a called regarding sudden change of my husband and he made it clear to me that my husband will love me till the end of the world, that he will never leave my sight. Now me and my husband is back together again and has started doing pleasant things he hasn't done before, he makes me happy and do what he is suppose to do as a man without nagging. Please if you need help of any kind, kindly contact Dr. Okirika for help and you can reach him via email: okirikaspiritualhindustemple@gmail.com

Turia Pitt Suffered 65% Burns But Loved Conquered All...

Amazing Story Shared by Dr. Ben Carson on Facebook, i thought it is inspiring and i decided to share;

The Australian ex-model Turia Pitt suffered burns to 65 per cent of her body, lost her fingers and thumb on her right hand and spent five months in hospital after she was trapped by a grassfire in a 100 kilometre ultra-marathon in the Kimberley. Her boyfriend decided to quit his job to care for her recovery. 
Days ago, in an interview for CNN they asked him:
"Did you at any moment think about leaving her and hiring someone to take care of her and moving on with your life?"

His reply touched the world:

"I married her soul, her character, and she's the only woman that will continue to fulfill my dreams."

This made me very reflective. I just wonder; if the person you love today encounters an incident or accident that transforms who they are physically, it could be amputation, it could be paralysis, it could be severe burns that scald their flesh beyond recognition, w…

Good morning people! 
Just checking in to sign the register. Lol. It's been a very busy week and it looks like it might be an even busier weekend. I was hoping to get some writing done when I got to the airport yesterday but I even almost missed my flight. It was hopeless trying to do any work on the plane as it was bumpy af, and this toddler behind me wouldn't stop screaming in piercing shrieks like he was being exorcised. 
I got into town pretty late and needed to keep an appointment ASAP. I'm heading out right now and it's going to be a long day, but thought I should drop this first. 
Have a splendid day. Im'ma be back soon.

THE ‘NEW’ SIDE CHICK: I WAS HER

A side chick is commonly known as a mistress or a woman that’s romantically involved with a man who is in a committed relationship.  However after doing some reflecting, I realize that’s not the only type of side chick.  I want to discuss “the new side chick”–a woman who decides to stay by a man’s side after he has expressed his lack of relationship intentions with her through his words or actions.  So many women have made this mistake at least once in their lifetime, and unfortunately I’ve done the same thing. I like to think of the new side chick as an appetizer.  You’re there just to satisfy the immediate appetite of the man, but as soon as that mouth-watering entrée comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrée is what he really wanted; he went to the restaurant to order steak, not hot wings.  You were just a placeholder, fling, temporary commitment, or  maybe even just a “good ol time” until what he really wanted was presented to hi…

Shhhhhhh....

I'm in an amebo mood tonight. Don't ask me, I honestly don't know why. Also I'd like to share too but I'd do that anonymously in the comment section. Tonight I want to talk about secrets. It's ok, we can all be anonymous. 
Is it true that EVERYBODY has a secret? 
Is there anyone here who doesn't have a secret? I'd really like to know; You're a completely open book and there's not ONE thing about you that you wouldn't mind other people knowing about? Please raise your hands up. 
And for the rest of us, what's something about you that no one knows, or very few people know? Who's got a dark secret here, or a weird one, or a funny one even? I really don't mean to be invasive but I don't want to be the only one sharing, plus I think hearing other people's secrets is quite fun, don't you think?

I'll only make one request; that we stay civil. 

(F it was you who made this suggestion, right? I'm not too sure and I can't even remember the post the comment was made on).
