QKchuks Onuorah Solomon and David existed before Christ so, they wouldn’t have been Christians. Just use 2baba abeg.

And for this reason of marriage shall a man

– leave his parents

– And cleave to his wife not “wives”

Secondly, at creation,God saw that it was not good for a man to be alone.

Then he made for him A WOMAN, an helpmeet and a companion. Not women. Not helpmeets and not companions.

He could have made for Adam a man too. After all, they can both discuss, laugh and work together.

What does the scripture says on marrying more than one wife

He Created a WOMAN For The Sake of;

  • Sexual intimacy and pleasure
  • Procreation
  • Support
  • Care and love
  • Love

And guess what!

A woman was just enough to provide all this if not an all knowing God would have known better to create at least 3 women for Adam if he knew a woman wouldn’t be enough.

Even though it wasn’t outrightly written as “forbid”, all God did at creation answers your question.

“And in that day seven women shall take hold of one man, saying, We will eat our own bread, and wear our own apparel: only let us be called by thy name, to take away our reproach.” KJV Study Bible

Osondu Chinwendu Peace Don’t be misleaded, the Bible did not instruct men to accept that but trying to show some signs of end times.

If Christianity is about one man, one wife; why then does the great Prophets in the Bible have more than one wife?
Even the man David God called “a man after my heart” had more than ONE WIFE!

Yes, Christianity forbids marrying more than one wife/husband.

After seeing how Abraham, Isaac Jacob, David etc. Were messing around with women, God concluded in New Testament that “one man one wife”. Period.

Can a Christian marry more than one wife

If all this prophets in the Bible married more than one wife, why Muslims are been attacked by marrying four wives by Christians?

The marriage certificate issued by the church is recognised by our civil laws which permits only one wife the church works in line with govt laws you can legally be married to one wife every other woman is an intruder

The Holy scripture says ‘ a man should love his wife just as Christ loves the Church ‘ mind you it didn’t say wives(plural), but wife(singular). So you can argue for yourselves.

One man, one wife, Moses allow the people of the old testament to marry more than one because of their stubbornness but in the beginning it was not so said Jesus himself. no divorce allow. What God has joined together let no man put asunder.

Gen 2:24
Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.

Cleave unto his wife not wives. Ashawo generation.

Yes. Specifically Jesus was against it when in the book of Mathew he said a man shall cling unto his wife and the two shall become one flesh. If two becomes one where is the space for another? Also polygamy does not cure promiscuity. Anybody who is not satisfied with one partner cannot be satisfied with 4… They will keep roving and roaming! 😎

Christianity does not forbid polygamous marriage neither is it in support of it.

Holly Bible

The one man one wife idea was bound to religious leaders alone according to 1Timothy 3:12; Let deacons be men of one woman- Not polygamous, or at least, not womanizers, focused upon their wife as their one woman.

Ruling their children and their own families well. It is noted on verse 5, family life was not to be allowed to just follow a natural course. There was to be CONSCIOUS LEADERSHIP.

It was never a command from God Almighty. Infact, as Christians, you’re permitted to marry as much women as you can if you’re capable of taking care of them but Apostle Paul (not God) suggests that it is best you stay with one in order to save yourself from the problems that comes with having multiple wife’s.

Seinitonkumo Solomon Gibson

The musilm following old testament and not the way of salvation,old testament is the book of law which cannot give life,no one can have two or more wives and please them in the way of God never.

No it doesn’t and it’s not written anywhere in the bible. The bible as a matter of fact doesn’t forbid polygamy…

If you think otherwise, please quote me wrong with biblical proves let’s trash it out.

As a matter of fact…. No pastor has the right to wed or join anyone unless the couples in question invites you to do so.

Your parents are the ones that has every right to wed, join and bless your marriage.

It is church leaders and deacons that the Bible say they must be husband of one wife.

That passage specifically says, they must be husband of one wife and who has control over his family. It doesn’t talk about members. And it’s silent on the rest people too. Any other thing may just be our own deductions or inference.

A man to his wife, and a wife to her husband. It’s in the new testament. Matthew 19:3>9 you can also check Timothy 3:2.

But in the old testament, you can marry as many wives as you want.

They will go to old testament to bring out tithe and offering, but when it comes to not marrying more than one wife, they will go to new testament. Let me come and be going.

Any answers you give here u must back it up with the word of God concerning the new testament which we are into now not the law because Christianity is not Judaism, so don’t quote old testament laws to me to validate your point or opinion And don’t answer from your intellectualism.

Matthew 19:5 And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? The 2 shall be one flesh that is one man one wife.

Genesis 2:23 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.

2:24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh. 2:25 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.

If you can face the consequences you can marry more than 10 wifes because those that marry more than one wifes in the Bible they are the one that causes some problem we Christian are still facing till now.

Even though those family that their father Marry more than one wifes they are not happy in there marriage, they are just doing eye services only those that are reasonable can relate.

Am talking from experience, may God rebuild all broken homes in Jesus name. Please no insult

Men with promiscous minds are trying to back this question with wrong impression. And the bible recorded how eve was formed from Adam’s rip and was called A COMPANION/ WIFE.

God was capable of using the whole of Adam’s rips to form wives at least to eradicate loneliness in the house but he is not an alter of confusion. Secondly For so shall A MAN leave his mother and father to cleave to his WIFE why not wives?
