I asked God (the One of the scriptures) what He thought of monogamy and polygamy. He said that judgements and laws against polygamy were a great source of irritation for Him. He went on to say that these are a great offence against women, who find their opportunities for sisterhood with other women curtailed, as well as their options for getting under the spiritual prayers and protection of a Godly man. And, He said, many women are tempted ny the evil one to view men as a resource, a provision to be jealously guarded and exploited. This distracts or even cuts them off from having their joy fulfilled in Him.


He said that single women with children, that fear Him, will want their children to have a godly man for a father. These are hard to find, since few find the narrow gate. Such women (there are, He lamented, too few of these as well) might well bind together as wives of a single man with godly aspirations. By praying together for such a man, he is less likely to backslide, and more likely to grow in holiness and effectiveness as a father to their children.


He said that women in general, if they fear God, will be happier if married to a polygynous, godly man. Their sister wives provide the best fellowship. Unspiritual women will be more miserable, feeling the pressure to complete their joy in God instead of "their man.". He said there will be trouble, but it will be redemptive. Better than the trouble that comes otherwise.


He said, though, realistically, polygynous marriages must be built through matchmaking overseen by existing wives. Men who encounter interested women ought to simply introduce them to his wives, who will decide as a group what is wise. There do not seem to be any men on earth at the present time with the wisdom to govern such a process.


All this, of course, is prophetic, and ought to be judged by other prophets. We all are warned not to despise prophecy. All can prophecy, and are admonished to do so. I hope all readers of these words ask God Himself for confirmation. If received, please pray for a release of polygynous marriages amoung the Godly.

Presumably, then, a godly woman could take on several men to everyone's benefit.

Don't we wish! However, it is not about creative orgies, but about godly children. These benefit by growing up in the natural with a clearly identified father, in preparation for an eternity loving a spiritual Father. "It is a wise child who knows their own father!" Mothers cannot (usually) be misidentified, but a woman with several husbands could create confusion for her children as to who actually is their father.


This has, too, a natural influence. In the biology of the species, the propensity of men to love a child depends, in the natural, on their surety that the child is theirs. Men love children and wives less, or at least are predicted to by the theory of evolution, when they aren't sure, or are sharing. Since the best thing a man can do to raise a competent child is to love their mother, it is good to do all we can to make this easier.


Women, on the other hand, unless evolution is non-sense, will love a man more in polygyny, since this proves he is genetically more competent. We have several women combining their estimates of his goodness. The women, too, have the other women and children loving their children, both in reciprocal altruism and genetic relatedness.


But this only works if the women are the ones making all the marital decisions.


Good question!

Monogamy is natural.  So is everything else.  What is unnatural is the idea that one of these fits everyone.

Right! Forcing monogamy on all is quite stupid and socially very destructive. Even those who find monogamy natural or comfortable for them get monogamy wrong when it is set forth as the way for all, the law of the land.


Women expecially are damaged, foolishly striving to get a husband before they get a life. As long as all the reasonable choices are on the table, one can walk in the one they have chosen keeping it's limits in perspective.


But, men too, not seeing any decent way to deal with extramarital calls on their masculinity, are sorely tempted to slip back into the irresponsible mode of being sexual. We hope they, we, resist, but effective resistence to immorality is usually achieved by investing in the virtuous core of temptation. Every evil is virtue misdirected, but the truth and walking in the light sets us free. Men do well when, in the midst of temptation, they "make their request to almighty God" for an another spouse. They surely will receive "the peace that passes all understanding," and so will be better able to resist an unfaithful response. And God may see fit to bring the women involved into the sisterhood love that is so critical to the raising of Godly children. But all involved must see polygamy as one of the options.


Until the law is changed, we will be stuck with jealous, grasping, isolated wome;: foolish, weak, wasted men; and floundering children. National shame.
