What is the difference between polygamy
The condition or practice of having more than one spouse at one time. Also called plural marriage.
The condition or practice of having more than one wife at one time.
We provide a comparison:
Polygamy is a plural family without respect to structure or relationship. A polygamous family could include two husbands and three wives, or any combination of men and women living together in what they call a "marriage". These are not Biblical marriages in our opinion.
A polygynous family is one in which there is one husband with more than one wife. This is a legitimate form of Biblical marriage, just as sanctioned as monogamy. Here are three verses of Scripture written and given to God's people at the same time. How can anyone suggest that Gen.2:24 insists on one husband and one wife?
Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave
to his wife and they shall be one flesh. (note no TWO shall be one
Deu 21:15 If
a man has two wives, one beloved and another hated, and they have borne
him sons, the beloved and the hated; and if the first-born son
was of her that was hated,
provides the joy intimacy brings and without bonded commitment before
our God sex is nothing more than self indulgence; free love is a free
ticket to deep sadness. The Lord does not sanction fornication and the
Lord has clearly established hierarchal order, the husband head of each
wife, the wife with one husband.
Please do not correlate or condone the licentious behaviour of polyamory with God's Word. A woman having multiple men is an offence to God. Intimacy is marriage and a woman with multiple men has multiple husbands and out of line with God's Word. Men sleeping with the same woman are committing fornication
Polyamory is a wicked deception. Many loves or lovers based loosely on the concept that we are to love each other as Christ commanded is Bible abuse not adherence.
Intimacy is something precious; a gift from God who made people male and female and to abuse intimacy with multiple lovers and then twist the Word of God in an attempt to condone it is double wickedness. God is not liberally minded in such things and neither are His obedient children.
monogamy are endorsed by God in His Word; a husband is free to have as
many wives as he can comfortably support.
