Polygamy Should Be Legalized
28 August 2015
homosexual “marriage” insist that it’s all about “equal rights” and “fairness.”
What could be more unequal and more unfair than to say that one form of sexual perversion is OK, but another is not?
If we want to be truly “fair” and make sure that everyone has “equal rights,” then polygamy should be legalized as well. That is certainly the argument of polygamists.
If marriage is going to be redefined for homosexuals, then it is only right and fair to redefine it for polygamists as well.
And while we’re at it, there is also the huge issue of Islamic child marriage. In Western culture, we have traditionally insisted that a person has to be at least 16 or 18 years old before they can marry. The West has also traditionally insisted that homosexuality and polygamy were immoral and illegal.
But now that homosexuality has been declared moral and legal, with polygamy hot on its heels, why be so narrow-minded as to forbid the 1,400-year-old Islamic tradition of child marriage?
The Qur’an says that Muhammad was an excellent role model who should be imitated by all Muslims. When around 50 years of age, Muhammad was betrothed to six-year-old Aisha. The marriage was consummated when Muhammad had sex with her at the age of 9.
For 14 centuries, Muslim men have been delighted to follow Muhammad’s pedophilic example. In our “modern” age, this type of “marriage” is rampant in Muslim countries, and is on the rise in the West as the Muslim invasion gains speed.
Of course, in the West we value “equal rights” and “fairness” above everything, including decency, morality and truth. The philosophy of the 1960s — “if it feels good, do it” — has become the foundation of our culture. So why not embrace all types of marriage — homosexual, polygamous, pedophilic, and any other flavor you want to invent? Romans 1:18-32, the apostle Paul explained what happens when human beings reject God and refuse to glorify Him as God or to give thanks to Him:
If you want to follow Yeshua (Jesus) by living in Light and Truth as He does, then you must forsake all sexual immorality, no matter the gender, number, or age of the partner(s). Otherwise, you are continuing to follow Satan in darkness and deception, no matter how much you might imagine that you are following Yeshua.
Satan cannot create like the Creator God. Therefore, he loves to take what God has created and try to destroy it through a twisted, defiled parody. Demonically-inspired counterfeit marriages — homosexual, polygamous, pedophilic — are Satan’s attack on God’s genuine marriage, in the hope of completely destroying it.
Unfortunately, Satan is becoming more and more successful as mankind more and more rejects God. Our religious and political leaders, claiming to be wise, have become fools, their thinking has become futile because their foolish hearts have become darkened, and they exchange truth for lies. Homosexual / polygamous / pedophilic “marriages” are part of the tragic results.
Why is marriage between one man and one woman so important to God? There are many reasons, but one is that it is a physical symbol of a spiritual reality.
In a number of Old Testament passages, the God of Israel, Yahweh, refers to Himself spiritually as a husband, and to the Jewish people, collectively and spiritually, as His wife.
In a number of New Testament passages, the God of Israel in human form, Yeshua, is referred to spiritually as a husband, and His followers, male and female together, from all ethnic groups, collectively and spiritually, are referred to as His wife.
Furthermore, as I explained in The New Testament On Sexual Sin, all throughout the Old Testament, and especially in the prophetic books, the language of physical sexual sin is used in a metaphorical way to describe the spiritual sin of idolatry and unfaithfulness to God — see Ezekiel 16 as just one example among many. This sexual symbolism is carried over into the writings of the New Testament, particularly in the prophetic book of Revelation.
For these reasons, Satan is very eager to deceive and seduce mankind into sexual immorality and perversion, because it destroys what God is trying to communicate through true marriage, and it leads human beings into spiritual immorality and perversion, which is even worse because it ends in eternal spiritual death. The apostle Paul referred to this in another passage:
Do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men — neither the active homosexual partner nor the passive homosexual partner. (1 Corinthians 6:9)hook, line and sinker.
Furthermore, the proponents of perverted “marriage” — whether homosexual, polygamous or pedophilic — will condemn, vilify, and persecute anyone who reject these lies and chooses to live in the Light and Truth instead. They will be accused of being homophobes and Islamophobes. This is already happening — see The Homosexual Agenda for more details — and will only get worse as the spiritual darkness covering the Earth increases.
As I wrote recently in I Read the News Today, Oh Boy:
As individual followers of Yeshua, we are powerless to prevent these movements from gaining a stranglehold on mankind. But we CAN decide whether we will participate in them or not. Even more importantly, we MUST decide if we are willing to suffer, to the point of death, in order to resist these evils.
By our words and actions, will we actively resist and actively insist that homosexuality, Islam, and anti-Semitism are anti-Messiah evils born in the pit of Hell? Are we willing to lose our money, possessions, home, livelihood, friends, family, spouse (opposite sex, of course!), children, freedom, health, and even our very lives for the sake of truth and righteousness?
Or, as so many “Christians” will inevitably do, will we compromise by tolerating, agreeing with, and submitting to evil, in a vain attempt to preserve our pitiful little lives on this earth? Yeshua has made His requirements quite clear:
Yeshua said to His disciples, "Whoever wants to be My disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow Me. For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for Me will find it. What good will it be for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul? Or what can anyone give in exchange for their soul? For I, the Son of Man, am going to come in My Father's glory with the angels, and then I will reward each person according to what they have done." (Matthew 16:22-27)
