It will take time to go through all the articles to make these changes. In the Bible, when you read the word wife/wife’s/wives/wives’ the underlying word is simply female. Greek gyne and Hebrew ‘ishshah. Yes, the word “wife” was invented and has come to assign nonsensical privileges, even rights, not found in the Bible.

If God Made Two Wives For Adam

If God Made Two Wives For Adam
Then pious men would say;
“Upon two wives each Christian man
Must certainly lay claim!”

Now if a Christian man
Would take himself but one,
They’d charge him with monogamy
And soon he would be hung.

Dare he take more than two, such shame
For Adam took but twain.
They’d hang him high upon a tree
‘For two made He, not three.’

If God made two wives for Adam
Then Christians would make war
On heathens who dared take just one.
“Two wives!” the cry, “Not less! Not more!”

So God in his great wisdom tells
Of just one wife for Adam.
If more there were, kept secret still
Lest men misread God’s perfect will

What helpmeet could God have created
To prove some men be unequally mated?
Should He have made a fraction more
Yea, 1.1 or 1.4?

Nay, He created one
No precedent to set
And if today one’s not enough
There’s plenty more than that.

So finally, I am left to ask,
If you cannot read minds,
How do you know our Lord’s intent
Of God – Creator of mankind?

A Maiden’s Footprints in the Sand

A poet’s words though many
And his descriptions grand
Cannot contain the message
Of a maiden’s footprints in the sand

His English that of kings
And his pen as many swords
Before a maiden’s love
Seem faint, somehow untoward

And when at last in o­ne attempt
To say what’s in his heart
He gives a thrust with pen and soul
Yea, nearly comes apart

Now smitten sore and left undone
Knoweth he is just a man
Before the maiden’s love
Before her footprints in the sand

Admonitions

What more ungratefully unthankful to nature, the world, and our own species, than not to beget children, as our ancestors and parents have begot us? For my part, I make account, that such men are murderers of as many as they might have begotten.

— Bernardino Ochino, Dialog on Polygamy – from the mouth of Telypolygamus
