Is polygamy ok to God?

Rochii View Post
I honestly think polygamy wouldn't be good for anyone and it isn't God's will. (I'd never share my husband).What's your opinion?

You wouldn't share your husband because you love him and are jealous for him. Jealousy is a good thing. Ex 20:14



Can the fact that for example David and Solomon had many wives suggest that polygamy is ok?

No. David repented and Solomon died and went to hell (Ge 2:24).

 In general, polygamy is not an issue in western countries...

Tell your daughter that the culture will support and even honor her husband when he commits adultery before she gets married (Ps 12:8, Jer. 16:2, Mt 24:37-39).

... I always thought Polygamy was ok in Old Testament times because of what King David and Solomon did having many wives. They were influenced by Arab cultures surrounding them... 

Can't blame the Arabs for this one. They were more responsible before God. You were supposed to notice when they were out of the will of God.

...[S]houldn't we look at what God has said and what He has...done about it?

No (Eph 8:11).

...multiple men of God were married to more than one woman simultaneously without conviction...

When the bible records a crime, it is not endorsing said crime (Ex 20;14).

Ephesians 8:11? What crime are you speaking of?

The crime of adultery (Ex 20:14) punishable by death (Lev. 20:10–12)--not in our culture --you're made President (Is 5:20).

Having more than one woman is adultery.
The Donald
has a wife who lives down the street in a hut. His First Concubine/Adulteress lives in the White House (Rom. 7:2, 3). This is Sodom aka America so we make it up as we go along (Jer. 16:2).

...I could care less who has one wife and if someone has two or more...

We know (Heb 13:4). This will come again at the Great White Throne.
