Monogamists Slay Millions!
Monogamists murdered over 17,000 Americans in 2006 and well over 300,000 people around the world last year. Practitioners of various sects of monogamy have left a wake of blood and violence throughout history. Monogamists such as Stalin to Hitler to Mao, have literally slain hundreds of millions of people.
What is behind this Monogamist reign of terror?
Now, this is not a joke. The fact is, 99.9 percent of all crimes committed by those identifying as Christians in America are committed by self professing monogamists! The first murderer, Cain, is said to have been a monogamist. So why is it that when you search the headlines on polygamy that everything you read is negative? It’s because Americans hate polygamists and that anti-polygamist bigotry runs deep. It motivates the monogamists to put polygamists in jail for heterosexual sex between consenting adults if those consenting adults happen to be polygamists who have proclaimed themselves to have been married. Monogamists say: “polygamy bad” “fornication good.” Homosexuals and lesbians are placed on a pedestal. And before the MeToo movement even pardons for notorious homosexual pedophiles were praised while polygamists were and remain condemned.
How can this be? What is widely held to be true is usually Satan’s lie and the false doctrine of monogamy is Satan’s biggest whopper. Hundreds of thousands of African women have been abandoned by their husbands at the request of “Christian” missionaries and this still happens today! I have received emails with horror stories of how monogamist missionaries have advised polygamists to abandon their extra wives to what would undoubtedly be a life of poverty and disease. Households are destroyed, livelihoods are ruined, and dreams are shattered, all for the false doctrine of monogamy. And the biggest lie is that African polygamy spreads AIDS! Please, somebody tell me how a man can get AIDS by having sex with his wives who have never slept with anyone but him… in their lives!
As Christians, we are not called to lie. Stop it now. Stop it. Stop lying. Get your facts right and here is the most important fact:
Jesus was and IS the Messiah.
The Messiah, in order to have been truly the Messiah must have legitimately descended from the Kings of Israel according to all sound Bible doctrine. If polygamy is not legitimate then Jesus was illegitimate and could not be the Messiah. BUT JESUS WAS and IS the Messiah, praise His Name! Therefore, to use a claimed fact or claimed doctrine from the time Adam was created to the time of Jesus’ birth to argue against polygamy is to say Jesus is illegitimate!
So when you rhetorically ask in your snooty way, “Why didn’t God create more than one Eve?” you are with that rhetorical question claiming that Jesus was illegitimate! Blasphemer! By claiming even one of the relationships from which his descendancy is traced was forbidden you have blasphemed! Repent!
I will now assume, that you being a righteous Christian have repented and are now asking yourself where you might find your belief against polygamy in the New Testament. Now, if you use any New Testament verse to claim polygamy is not legitimate then you must not use any of the words spoken by Jesus for Jesus’ discussion on marriage always used Old Testament exegesis to make His point (except of course for Jesus’ parable about the five women who went into the marriage chamber to become brides of, well, a polygamist.
So let’s continue now that we’ve accepted that the Old Testament cannot be taken to be against polygamy or Jesus Himself would be illegitimate and not the Heir to the throne of David. We’re left with what, in terms of a New Testament argument against polygamy? We’re left with the New Testament minus all verses that reference the Old Testament and that is a very small portion of the New Testament indeed, for all of the writers of the New Testament rested their arguments on quotes (paraphrased or not) from the Old Testament. But in order to make this as simple as possible let’s do this. Let’s put forth the claim that there is a New Testament verse that forbids polygamy, a new law. Take any verses you might believe are against polygamy, that you may in the future believe against polygamy, or that you never found but wished you’d found against polygamy and put them under that heading, “New Law that Forbids Polygamy.” If that is true, if there is a new law that forbids polygamy, then we must consider that claim in light of Colossians 2:14 Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross.
That law that was nailed to the cross was that very law that existed during Jesus ministry and as we have discussed, the law contained in the Old Testament and that law could not have included anything against polygamy. So if after Jesus was crucified we have a new law against polygamy, answer this:
On which cross was any proclaimed new law nailed? That new law is not the law that was nailed to the cross of Jesus. The law that was nailed to the cross of Jesus was the law of the Old Testament and that could not have declared polygamy a sin for that would have made Jesus our Messiah illegitimate. Now maybe some of the anti-Semites among you would like this to be true but it is not. Jesus is our Messiah, He is not a mamzer (the transliterated Hebrew for bastard) and therefore polygamy is not against the Bible. Polygamy cannot be against the Bible for any anti-polygamy law would have been a post crucifixion law of which there are none. Read it again. Jesus died for those ordinances already written:
“Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to His cross;”
So therefore there could be no new law of God banning polygamy for they would simply be doctrines and the commandments of men which if we follow we worship God in vain!
“Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.”
Less than .01 percent of the people in prison are Christian polygamists. Those of you who hate polygamists and who continue to slander them will remain in my prayers.
