Forced Monogamy Leads to More Feminism
« on: Mon May 04, 2009 - 17:08:11 »
Forced monogamy and feminism go hand in hand.

See how it all works... Women outnumber men due to wars and shorter life expectancy and things such as dangerous jobs that are more often performed by men.

The Civil War claimed the lives of 600,000 men.  Did the people that were so passionate about that war offer any consolation to the young women that without marriage prospects?  No, they told those young women You're out of luck! ::shrug::

If the churches would not have been wrongfully restricting one wife per man, the hundreds of thousands of young ladies would not have wound up bitter old spinsters. 

If our country had been truly following God we would have used the principles of polygyny and these women would have been in families and had children.

They were lied to and told that God would not allow men to have more than one wife.  What those ladies didn't know was that God does allow a man to have several wives.  God Himself says that He was a husband unto them (Jeremiah 31:32) and another time depicts Himself as married to two women, Ezekiel 23:4.   He also not only gave David many wives, but TOLD David that it was Him that gave the wives to him, 2 Sam 12:8.

So whenever there is a surplus of unmarried women there will inevitably be women that are increasingly angry and don't know why. This is the bedrock of feminism.

But there is another ugly aspect of Forced Monogamy:  Cheap labor.  Women that are not inside of a family functioning as wives and mothers are available to be working outside of the home.

Notice it says WIFE not WIVES
Genesis 2:24
For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh

Matthew 19:5
and said, 'For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh' ?

Ephesians 5:31
"For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh."

1 Timothy 3:2
Now the overseer must be above reproach, the husband of but one wife, temperate, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach,

Titus 1:6
An elder must be blameless, the husband of but one wife, a man whose children believe and are not open to the charge of being wild and disobedient.

Blessings

 AMEN to that,  I will add a verse also
1 cor 7 v2
Let each man have his own wife and let each woman have her own husband (again singular) There is no mention anywhere in the New Testament (the teaching for us as Christians) of anyone being allowed to have more than one wife or a women to be able to have more than one husband.

pfc hall, this thing about wars  generally doesnt apply in most countries today.
The numbers of men to women is amost equal, in fact in large countries such as China and India, due to so many girls being aborted or murdered at birth due to the strong cultural preference for boys, there are many more men than women, so are you then avocating in these countries that the women have should be able to have 2,3, 4 or more husbands? Or does this only work the other way?   
In one generation in parts of China, there are 7 men to each woman, so should the women be be allowed to have 7 husbands so that they can all have a wife? VERY Interested to hear your answer.
Also it is not 'forced' monogamy for either men or women. I know no Christian who believes that we are allowed to have more than one wife according to the Bible (except for some mormon sects).

Well if God had endorced and approved of so many wives, why did he give Adam only one?

That did sort of slow down the populating of the earth.

 well exactly Bonnie. if God saw fit to only give them one wife and one husband each when they had to populate the world, then why do some men today (very few fortunately) seem to think that they can have more than one?.
I have always said that it is because they want to have as many women to have sex with as possible and they try to justify this sin by claiming that they are Biblically allowed to. I guess if we want to do anything enough, we will always attempt to justify it even if it is with ridiculous methods.

I also always think it is telling that they never advocate that women can have more than one husband even if there are more men than women. It only works one way apparently.

I'm assuming that you really have no real grasp on Scripture at all.

So many verses out of context... maybe I should just give up on such babies of the bible.

FYI, I am not pro polygamy.. one wife is enough for me... why anyone would want more then one is cause for a mental institution.

But, the bible is NOT against polygamy.... it only restricts elders (overseers) to one wife.

I think it's one of those things that was allowed but not preferred (kind of like Moses allowing a certificate of divorce).... can you give me one instance in the Bible of a man with multiple wives that didn't have major family problems as a result? Besides that, Paul certainly didn't include it in his discussion of marriage in 1 Cor 7.

It's a moot point, anyway. The bible says we are to respect the laws of our government and polygamy isn't allowed.

The implication by Hall is that a woman cannot choose to live a life as a single celibate, that a woman cannot live without sex, that a woman must have sex and children to be happy.

Hogwash. I've known a number of women in my lifetime who have chose this path at a fairly young age, chose to be single, celibate, and without children. Some of them did so to be missionaries, but not all.

Hall is simply trying to find justification for his polygamist beliefs. If it gets in his way, he calls it "feminism". I don't think he actually knows what it is.

The Bible doesn't outright forbid/prohibit polygamy, this is true. Neither does it prohibit slavery. Many things done in the history of man by man were not right. Someone mentioned divorce. A good example. That's why God sent us a Savior, to redeem us, to set us free from all bondage.

In my mind, there is not much difference between a polygamist and a pornographer. They are both cut from the same mold. The goal is self-satisfaction.

Not always.. in some cultures that still practice arranged marriages, polygamy is one way to ensure that your daughter is well taken care of... especially where there is an excess female to male balance issue.

If the existing wife consents to accepting another wife into the marriage, I see no problem with it.

But like another poster said.. polygamy is against the laws of this land so it is moot.

I for one have enough to deal with my single wife.. having multiple wives is something I have never desired.. and would probably make me go jump off a cliff somewhere.

Yes, but we're not talking about other cultures, other countries. We're talking about the USA, where Hall resides. Maybe he should move to another country.

It used to be in OT times the custom that the bride and groom lived with the bride's family to protect the bride, and the groom did not work for the first year so they would have plenty of time to get to know each other, and the bride's father would know if he turned out to be an abusive-no-good-scoundrel and kick him out on his keester. I like it! Why don't we re-instate that one?

Only if they spend the next year at the grooms parents house... so he can boot that gold-digging, bon-bon eating, lazy bride back to her parents... I'd be all for that.. it would have saved me 22 years of my life.

Observations:

  • I firmly believe that the objections to polygyny by the marriage forbidders is not rooted in a desire to follow scripture.  The motivation is rooted in self idolatry.
  • There is never a single passage given by the marriage forbidders that has God conveying a dislike of multiple wives.
  • All of the passages given that are supposedly against polygyny always have other primary meanings.  We are always told to accept the secondary supposed inference as if it were a direct and primary meaning of the verse. **
**To put it another way, any verse from bible cited against polygyny will always be dealing with a different issue.  For instance, Matt 19 is dealing with divorce, not about polygyny.  1 Cor 7:2 has the inspired writer reasserting the right to marriage because of the rampant pagan sex worship, not about polygyny.  I Tim 3:2 deals w/ qualifications of a deacon, not about polygyny.



Where is the passage that deals primarily against polygyny?

Deuteronomy 17:17
17 He must not take many wives, or his heart will be led astray. He must not accumulate large amounts of silver and gold.

Malachi 2:14-15
14 You ask, "Why?" It is because the LORD is acting as the witness between you and the wife of your youth, because you have broken faith with her, though she is your partner, the wife of your marriage covenant.
15 Has not the LORD made them one? In flesh and spirit they are his. And why one? Because he was seeking godly offspring. [a] So guard yourself in your spirit, and do not break faith with the wife of your youth.

Yeah, but that's the thing.  Promoting polygyny narrows it down by making sure women don't have the same rights, thus keeping them enslaved.

I didn't write the bible and the MEN that did write it were writing what God told them.  And you're the one that would keep single women from having a husband.  Yes, Social Security can take care of them. 

It is not a matter of women belonging to man versus women being independent.  It is either women belong to man or women belonging to the State. 

Those telling the lie to woman that she can get a better deal by 'working for herself' always leave out that no one wants to marry an old spinster.  That is why Match.com and other dating websites are making money hand over fist. Its because these women that either put off marriage till late in life or divorced their husbands thinking they would trade up have begun to realize they were sold some magic beans.   

Woman was not made independent.  When she was made, the man was already here.  As the writer or I Corinthians puts it, Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man, 11:9.

Without going to deep into this aspect of the discussion, it reminds me of a dialogue I once had. 

Why was polygyny made illegal?  Because they thought it was wrong. 
And now why is it wrong?  Because it is against the law.

And why was it made against the law?  Because they thought is was sinful. 
And why is it sinful now?  Because it is against the law and we have to follow the laws of the land?   

Is there anyone here that can see the circular logic involved?

So threesomes or tensomes, as long as all are married to each other, is authorized by silence.  (Who says that the one wife married to the husband is not in the same committmented contractual relationship with the other woman as well, and not just to the man?)  *Or multiple men married to each other as well as the one woman?

Go for it!  God don't mind!



Modified: Why only one at a time?   where is 'but thou shalt know one at a time' also sanctioned by scripture?

Choosenone,
The bible is one of those things that if we don't look at it regularly, we forget what was said.  Like Eve forgot specifically and added to God's command about the forbidden fruit.  She added the clause about not touching the fruit while God never forbade that only not to eat it. 

You asked:

To which God replies:
Romans 7:2-3
For the woman which hath an husband is bound by the law to [her] husband so long as he liveth; but if the husband be dead, she is loosed from the law of [her] husband.
So then if, while [her] husband liveth, she be married to another man, she shall be called an adulteress: but if her husband be dead, she is free from that law; so that she is no adulteress, though she be married to another man.

Is that specific enough?  Should I provide more?

Choosenone,
The bible is one of those things that if we don't look at it regularly, we forget what was said.  Like Eve forgot specifically and added to God's command about the forbidden fruit.  She added the clause about not touching the fruit while God never forbade that only not to eat it.

So threesomes or tensomes, as long as all are married to each other, is authorized by silence.  (Who says that the one wife married to the husband is not in the same committmented contractual relationship with the other woman as well, and not just to the man?)  *Or multiple men married to each other as well as the one woman?

Go for it!  God don't mind!



Modified: Why only one at a time?   where is 'but thou shalt know one at a time' also sanctioned by scripture?

The prohibitions regarding homosexuality only apply to the men.  If a man has several wives and they 'fool around' there is no sin in that.  That passage in Romans chap 1 is talking about anal sex.  Women were exchanging natural relations (vaginal) for unnatural (anal).  This has to do with people worshipping THEMSELVES so much that they cast off reproduction because having children would take away from their Self Worship. 

There is no prohibition in scripture for so-called Lesbianism.

So you just mock whatever scripture you don't like?

Oh so it is ok for women to have sexual relationships with other women, it is Ok for a man to have sex with as many women as he wants as long as her calls them his 'wives' but it isnt ok for women to have two husbands. Sorry MD two women haivng sex isnt allowed and Christians are told to have one wife to one husband as God has always intended from the beginning.
A reason often used to promote polygamy is that there are more women than men. that doesnt apply today and in countries such as India and China where millions of female babies have been aborted and murdered, there are far more men than women so a good case for women having more than one husband.
if you allow your wife to have another husband then it is fair for you to have another lady in your bed. Strange how those who want lots of wives never want their wives to have lots of husbands .

Anyway polygamy is illegal so it cannot be done. You would have one wife and one girlfriend.
By the way have you found another lady yet? Do many women actually want to have sex with a married man if they are Christians? .

I showed you where God has specifically said that a woman cannot be married to two men at one time without being called an adulteress. 

What have you offered?  Human reasoning.
