Man Says: From a website defending the practice of “Christian” polygamy “: For both men, the solution is to take sufficient wives to prevent loneliness and unsatisfied desires from leading them into temptation. Paul stated, "It is better to marry than to burn." Paul did not qualify this statement by saying that it applied only to single men. He wrote the letter to the Corinthians which included all of the men in Corinth, not just the single men. In most cases, there is nothing lacking in the first wives of men that have a need for additional wives. They have all the wondrous attributes that God has bestowed on them. It is simply that God did not create a super race of women and there are some men for whom one woman simply is not enough. In most cases, there is nothing lacking in men who do not have a need for additional wives. They simply have been created by God in such a way that their lives are complete without additional wives” (http://www.christianpolygamy.com/)
God Says: “For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife; and they two shall be one flesh” (Mark 10:7-8). “A bishop must be blameless, the husband of one wife...Let the deacons be the husbands of one wife...” (1 Timothy 3:2, 12).
