Post Ichthus77
So how do polygamists obey this verse?

"Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband."

(1 Corinthians 7:2)

She cannot have "her OWN husband" if she is sharing him with one or more women!!
Just as the man is not to share his wife with any other man, no woman is to share her husband with any other woman.

They obey it perfectly,, they do have their OWN wife... and another one and another one., ALL THEIR OWN

Remember, the context here.. Paul is preaching against FORNICCATION,, before marriage.. to AVOID fornication,, NOT ADULTERY,, GET MARRIED

He is saying nothing about POLYGAMY in this verse he is encouraging marriage for those who might commit fornication....

Since I am one buck, does that mean I can have many does?? nuck nuck nuck

Yes, but how does EVERY WOMAN have her OWN husband? In polygamy her husband is not her own, but belongs to the group of wives. You forgot the 2nd part of the verse.

Now Blessed is comparing himself to God--since God is 1 with the Son and 1 with the Holy Spirit, that means Blessed could be 1 with as many wives as he would choose. Acts-celerater

Post As I pointed out in a different thread Wimauma
It isn't a matter of morality. It's a matter of authority.

Titus 3

Doing What is Good

1 Remind the people to be subject to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready to do whatever is good, 2 to slander no one, to be peaceable and considerate, and to show true humility toward all men.

Romans 13

Submission to the Authorities

1 Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. 2 Consequently, he who rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves. 3 For rulers hold no terror for those who do right, but for those who do wrong. Do you want to be free from fear of the one in authority? Then do what is right and he will commend you. 4 For he is God's servant to do you good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword for nothing. He is God's servant, an agent of wrath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer. 5 Therefore, it is necessary to submit to the authorities, not only because of possible punishment but also because of conscience. 6 This is also why you pay taxes, for the authorities are God's servants, who give their full time to governing. 7 Give everyone what you owe him: If you owe taxes, pay taxes; if revenue, then revenue; if respect, then respect; if honor, then honor.

Tomorrow the law is passed

No more public mention of the name of Jesus

Will you be a "Law abiding Citizen" or a Criminal?

Chinese Missionaries are criminals in your book... they break the law everyday!!!!!

What say you?

No he would be the collective husband of all the wives. None truly able to claim Him as their own.

Post I agree Wimauma
However, we must be ready to accept the consequences of our actions. If these people truely believe what they are doing is right, they should be willing to suffer for it. Didn't many of the disciples and others in both the Old and New Testament pay dearly for what they believed in?

Plus, some things are worth dying for, others are societal traditions that while not excluded, aren't directed.


I say this because in this and other posts you vehemently state that the government should leave these people alone. That's not scriptural either.

Yeah right, and a company car is the same as your OWN car.
Group property is never your private property. If your wife starts sleeping with another man and moves in with him on certain weekends is she still your own then or would you admit that just might be sharing her with another and she would no longer be exclusively your own? Your conclusions hold no water man.

So,, if I sleep with another woman

My wife is no longer my OWN WIFE?

Actually when my company made me my job offer they offered my "my OWN company car"

Thus it is indeed my OWN

If your wife has another husband is she still your own wife?
If you marry another woman you would no longer be HER OWN husband.
Nice try, but the way you say it is not the same thing. Something stops being your own when you have to divide it or share it.
A woman can say Biblically to a polygamist man "I'm not marrying you! You are already married. You already have a wife(s). I want my OWN husband just like the Bible orders and I'm not sharing him.

The company car is not your own. You can only use it. You don't own the title. You can neither sell it nor give it away. If you are fired, it is not yours to keep.
