In the past months we've been overrun with the demand for homosexual "marriage", and this sinful parallel to God's perfect design has permeated into our society with the demand for not only tolerance but affirmation. Matt Staver of Liberty Counsel has on more than one occasion mentioned the inevitable tidal wave of various other sexual deviancies, including polygamy, beastiality, pedophelia, and others to try to push their way to the mainstream to demand tolerance and affirmation.
In the past weeks I've been watching a conversation on the topic of polygamy among Bible believing Christians. I've stood dumbfounded as I've watched men with solid Bible fundamental values and beliefs condone the polygamy practice, and using the Old Testament to "prove" that God not only allows but blesses the practice. My gut reaction is "this is absolutely wrong!" and "this is stuff cult leaders push!"
So, in order to get a solid opinion on the subject and not go simply off the gut, I'm going to unpack this as best as I can as a non-scholar and see what the Bible says about the subject. You're more than welcome to follow along and comment as I walk through this. This subject area has peaked my interest, as a wife, and as a mom to a stepdaughter who will one day be a wife, and I'd like to share what I discover as I dig into this.
I imagine this may end up a small series, as it will take some time and study. Stay tuned for the coming studies!
