These Conservatives Oppose Unbiblical Marriage Amendment

Cross-Reference: Federal Marriage Amendment, Bible-based Conservative Christians embracing Christian Polygamy, "Sola Scriptura," "Sola Constitution"


A Bible-based group of Christians around the country warn that the Federal Marriage Amendment is big government idolatry.

A   number   of   pro-marriage   conservatives   do   oppose   the   Federal   Marriage   Amendment,   seeing   it   as   a   liberal,   idolatrous   idea   that   is   unbiblical   and   unconservative.

Who?     Christian   Polygamy   ---seriously.

Most   people   are   rather   startled   to   learn   that   some   Christians   actually   do   embrace   Christian   Polygamy.     (This   is   not   Mormonism.)     Even   more   startling,   Christian   Polygamy   supporters   are   usually   more   Bible-based   and   Constitutional   than   their   anti-polygamous   counterparts.     Yes,   more.

How?     They   genuinely   follow   the   exclusively   Bible-based   Christian   and   conservative   paradigms.

The   paradigm   of   exclusively   Bible-based   Christianity   (most   Protestantism)   is   based   upon   unchanged   doctrine   of   the   Bible,   as   literally   written   and   not   as   liberally   "interpreted."     Protestantism,   borne   of   the   Reformation,   is   primarily   defined   by   its   rejecting   ("protesting")   the   man-made   added   doctrines   and   authority   of   the   Catholic   institution   which   deviate   from   the   actual   text   of   the   Bible.     "Sola   Scriptura,"   meaning   "solely   Scripture,"   became   the   Reformation's   battle   cry,   the   resulting   paradigm   to   define   Protestantism.     The   principle   that   "only   the   Scriptures"   determine   true   Christian   doctrine   is   what   defines   exclusively   Bible-based   Christianity.

The   paradigm   of   modern   conservatism   is   based   upon   unchanged,   strictly   limited   government   and   unenumerated   individual   freedom.     The   Tenth   Amendment's   principle   limits   federal   government   authority   to   explicitly   enumerated   items   in   the   Constitution.     The   Ninth   Amendment   codifies   the   converse   principle   that   individuals'   rights   do   not   have   to   be   enumerated.     Those   two   principles   are   what   define   true   conservatism.

Simply,   true   exclusively   Bible-based   Christianity   is   "sola   Scriptura."     And   true   conservatism   is   "sola   Constitution."

Christian   Polygamy   operates   within   those   paradigms.

Embracing   Christian   Polygamy   usually   begins   after   an   intensive   search   for   absolute   scriptural   truth,   dropping   all   presuppositions,   "letting   only   the   Scripture   speak   for   itself."     "Sola   Scriptura"   in   application.

Such   deep   study   reveals   a   shockingly   indisputable   fact.     No   verse   outright   prohibits   polygamy.     None.

Then   there   are   those   dozens   of   polygamists   in   the   Bible.     Mighty,   faithful   heroes   ---including   Abraham,   Israel,   David,   and   Moses---   had   more   than   one   wife.

The   original   Hebrew   word   for   adultery   is   "na`aph,"   meaning   only,   "woman   that   breaketh   wedlock."     As   long   as   a   man   marrying   any   of   his   wives   is   not   marrying   another's   wife,   no   woman   is   breaking   her   wedlock   to   a   husband     ---hence,   no   adultery.    

And   no   one   in   the   Bible   was   ever   married   by   government.     Ever.

Digging   deeper,   every   anti-polygamy   argument   becomes   effortlessly   easy   to   answer.     (The   web-site,   www.BiblicalPolygamy.com,   makes   that   self-evident.)

Some   anti-polygamy   arguments   are   even   silly,   such   as   suggesting   that   David's   and   Moses's   polygamy   supposedly   "defied   God."

When   David   merely   counted   the   people,   God   removed   70,000   people   by   pestilence.     When   Moses   merely   hit   a   rock,   the   Lord   denied   his   entry   into   the   Promised   Land.     If   polygamy   "defied   God,"   there   is   no   way   God   would   have   ignored   more   wives!

Contrariwise,   when   two   of   David's   wives   were   kidnapped,   God   had   David   "recover   all."     And   when   Miriam   spoke   against   Moses   for   marrying   his   second   wife,   it   was   Miriam   who   suffered   seven   days   of   leprosy   from   God.

Moreover,   the   "Adam   and   Eve"   and   the   original   "one   flesh"   passages   were   both   authored   by   that   polygamous   Moses.     Only   liberalism   would   interpret   them   as   prohibiting   polygamy.     An   author   surely   knows   what   he   meant   in   his   writings!     And   that   very   same   polygamous   author,   Moses,   also   authored   the   polygamy-regulating   verses   of   Exodus   21:10   and   Deuteronomy   21:15.

The   Lord   is   self-described   in   polygamous   terms   in   Jeremiah   3   and   Ezekiel   23.     Christ   made   a   polygamous   self-description   in   the   Parable   of   the   Ten   Virgins.

In   2   Samuel   12:8,   God   outright   said   that   He,   Himself,   had   given   David   all   those   wives   and   would   have   given   even   more.

Thus,   for   Bible-based   Christians,   biblical   marriage   absolutely   includes   Christian   Polygamy.     The   Reformation   continues.

Yet,   other   conservatives   would   re-define   the   biblical   definition   of   marriage   and   liberally   expand   big   government.     They   would   re-define   marriage   to   an   unbiblical   definition   of   "one   man,   one   woman."     Willing   to   thereby   define   polygamous   Moses   as   a   criminal,   they   would   expand   the   false   god   of   government.

That's   idolatry.

It's   unbiblical   and   unconservative.

Government-defined   "marriage"   is   nowhere   in   Scripture.   Not   one   man   in   the   Bible   was   ever   "married"   by   government.     Not   even   one.     Based   on   "sola   Scriptura,"   the   exclusively   Bible-based   Christian   paradigm   can   never   commit   the   abomination   of   such   idolatry.     In   the   Bible,   God   never   "needed"   the   false   god   of   government   for   marriage.     Never.

The   word,   "marriage,"   is   nowhere   in   the   Constitution   ---nor   should   it   be.   Not   even   once.     Based   on   "sola   Constitution,"   the   conservative   paradigm   can   never   commit   the   constitutional   abomination   of   the   Federal   Marriage   Amendment.     The   unbiblical   concept   of   "one   man,   one   woman"   has   no   place   in   a   government-limiting,   individual-freeing   Constitution.     Never.

Therewith,   surprising   many,   Christian   Polygamists   remind   fellow   conservatives   of   true   biblical   marriage   and   true   conservatism.
