Reno Omokri, a former presidential adviser and activist, has expressed his thoughts on the contentious issue of Christianity and polygamy.
Take a look at what he wrote below.”
Well, what I’m about to say is just my own personal opinion based on my interpretation of Scripture. I cannot speak for the Christian faith as a whole.God Himself granted David numerous wives, according to 2 Samuel 12:8. “I delivered your master’s house to you, and your master’s women,” says the passage. Also, the prophets of the Old Testament were polygamous. Only overseers are required to be monogamous, according to 1 Timothy 3:2. Polygamy is not a sin, in my opinion.In the New Testament, however, the definition of sin is subjective. “Whatever is not from faith is sin,” says the New Testament (Romans 14:23).
As a result of the above, anything you conduct out of conviction of your faith, flowing from your conscience, is not sinful. If your conscience forbids it, though, it is a sin for you.Divorce is something that God despises. Malachi 2:6 demonstrates this. There is no place in the Bible where God condemns polygamy. “A man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh,” according to Matthew 19:5 and Genesis 2:24. Some interpret this to suggest that polygamy is no longer an option. However, laws controlling polygamy were included among the Commandments given to the Israelites by Moses, such as Exodus 21:10 and Deuteronomy 21:15-17.
However, let me restate that these are not doctrines. These are my privately held opinions which I will never preach on an altar as the ‘thus says the Lord’.Thank you and may God bless you.”
