I would love to have two or three wives.
Because of this I believe you will go to any length to justify polygamy.
The passages that anti-polygynists throw up have been abused and twisted
to make it look like God is against man having more than one wife.
No one twisted or abused any passages here, they were just mentioned. And according to the Pastoral epistles (1Ti 3:2, 1Ti 3:12, Tts 1:6) its obvious that God does want some men to practice monogamist relationships and not polygamist.
So God is against some men having more than one wife.
But Eve was formed from a rib. And a body can have many ribs but a rib can have only one body.
Talk about twisting Scripture, God made Adam one wife and her name was Eve. That was the perfect plan for man from the beginning of creation before the fall. There is nothing you can bring to this discussion that will changed that fact.
God said He was married to two women.
If you are talking about Adam I would like to see the book, chapter and verse.
God gave David plenty of wives. God said that David was a-okay in His sight.
Most if not all of the men in Israel had more than one wife. The census proves it.
Didn't Jesus say that for the hardness of their hearts Moses permitted them to put away their wives, but from the beginning it was not so? If in the beginning God created man with one wife why would you look to the actions of a disobedient, stiff necked people to justify polygamy?
God even commanded some men that if their brother's died and left no children then they were to marry their dead brother's wife. And it didn't matter if they were already married. They were still to take on another wife.
Not all the commands given to Israel can just randomly be applied to Gentiles.
God made men to want lots of women. It is natural.
What seems natural to a man is not always of God. (Pro 14:12, 1Cr 2:14)
