Sina Adedipe, A newspaper columnist wrote on anyone who preaches against polygamy commits sin.

"  

Pastors, prophets and other Christians, who do not want to commit sin and jeopardize their hereafter, should not preach against polygamy for social, economic and health reasons.


It is now 15 years (since 2003) that I have been writing in the Daily Sun that Almighty God is not against polygamy. And I have been doing so for ten years in this column which commenced eleven years ago, on Wednesday, December 19, 2007 with the comparison of this generation of Nigerian journalists and those of yesteryears, or an cient and modern. 



But this is the first time that I am dwelling on the sins committed by some pastors preaching against polygamy, who include General Overseers and founders of Pentecostal Churches. An incredible situation, which makes me wonder if they had ever read the Bible from Genesis through Revelation. This is because what they preach is against God’s laws in the Old Testament and the teachings of Jesus Christ in the New Testament. Giving me the impression that they think that the curses the Lord placed in Deuteronomy 27: 1 – 26 on anyone who will disobey His orders can be joked with or ignored.


The first sin such erring clerics commit is telling lies on the issue. As I showed in last week’s column, the Heavenly Father did not forbid a man marrying more than one wife in the Ten Commandments (Exodus 20: 1 – 17). And in any of His other injunctions in the remaining twenty chapters in Exodus and the Books of Leviticus ...........MORE

Many have criticized  this believe of his

Here are some extract

If the Lord is against multiple-marriage, would He not have  included men who have two or more wives and a woman married to a polygamist among those to be punished?

Having last week treated the issue of God’s statement in Genesis 2:24 raised by Steve (080-6532-7244), I now shift attention to his anonymous anti-polygamy colleague (080- 6771-3110) who sent the text message that follows.

“Good evening my brother. Bible is literal that monogamy is God’s standard for marriage. Creator made man and woman but your idea is man and women. Those Pastors who didn’t talk again are wise to avoid needless argument. Please rethink.”


Ho-ho! And what a load of rubbish! What the person who sent the message is saying is that the Heavenly Father created only Eve as wife for Adam because He wanted a man to be monogamous. It is one of the three questionable reasons people with the opinion offer in their puerile claim that the Ancient of Days is against polygamy.......MORE

Polygamy

Apart from what happened in Gen. 2:24, hear what Jesus said in Mark 10:6-8:

6. But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female.
7. For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife;
8. And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh.

Look at verse 7; because of what happened in Genesis i. e. verse 6. A man should cleave to his wife NOT wives. And in verse 8; the twain (two) NOT three, four or any numbers shall be one flesh.

If you check the problem of the world today is as a result of polygamy from the Bible (Abraham our forefathers). All those that practice polygamy in the Bible, regretted for the rest of their lives.

Therefore, I believe that Almighty God is against polygamy for those who want to have peace of God.
