Polygamy , the Biblical truth. can you handle Multiple relationships and personalities ?

Priest Zabach is a rare diamond among a peoples proclaiming the truth of Yah, God for those not of alternate language or terminology associated with the bible. Not only did this brother dispel the misconception of the virgin birth, but he touched on a subject m very passionate about ” polygamy” yes in the general sense. now the Israelite’s possibly will not agree on polyandry but in places where it has worked for thousands of years you just have to fall back, Brother Zabach is worth my attention i cant find nothing wrong with him inside his own doctrine and theology , but i know what you know his passion for the word

we and just in-case you think the biblical portion cant be verified , ill just help you find the actual points of reference

from wikipedia – great simplistic source

Multiple marriage was considered a realistic alternative in the case of famine, widowhood, or female infertility.[2] The practice of levirate marriage makes it an obligation for a man whose brother has left a widow without heir to marry her.[Deut 25:5–10] No allowance is given for a man who already had a wife.

The Torah includes specific regulations on the practice of polygamy, such as Exodus 21:10, “If he takes another wife to himself, he shall not diminish her food, her clothing, or her marital rights.” Deuteronomy 21:15–17, says that a man must award the inheritance due to a first-born son to the son who was actually born first, even if he hates that son’s mother and likes another wife more and Deuteronomy 17:17 states that the king shall not have too many wives.[3]

The first polygamist mentioned in the Bible is Lamech, whose two wives were Adah and Zillah (Genesis 4:19). Many important figures had more than one wife, such as Esau(Genesis 26:34Genesis 28:6-9), Abraham (Genesis 16:3Genesis 21:1-13Genesis 25:1Genesis 25:6), Moses (Exodus 2:21Exodus 18:1-6,Numbers 12:1), Jacob (Genesis 29:15-28), Gideon (Judges 8:29-32), Elkanah (1 Samuel 1:1-8), David (1 Samuel 25:39-442 Samuel 3:2-52 Samuel 5:13-16) andSolomon (1 Kings 11:1-3).

New Testament[edit]

Three passages in the pastoral epistles (1Timothy 3:21Timothy 3:12 and Titus 1:6) state that church leaders should be the “husband of but one wife.” This has been read by some Christian sects as a prohibition of polygamy, others argue that polygamy is allowed, but not for church leaders, still others argue that the passage refers only to church leaders not divorcing their first wives. Walter Lock in his 1990 book argues it may simply refer to marital unfaithfulness[12] since “no Christian, whether an overseer or not, would have been allowed to practice polygamy.”[13]

Cleave to wife[edit]

Most Christian theologians argue that in Matthew 19:3-9 and referring to Genesis 2:24 Jesus explicitly states a man should have only one wife:

Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh?

Polygamists do not dispute that in marriage “two shall be one flesh”, they only disagree with the idea that a married man can only be “one flesh” with one woman. Assuming the man is married, the fact that a man can even be “one flesh” with a harlot apparently does not negate his being “one flesh” with his wife.[16]
