New Covenant Patriarchy Discussion GroupIn order to facilitate greater discssion amoung the readers of the book Man and Woman in Biblical Law, we have started a discussion group at: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/newcovenantpatriarchy. If you have purchased and read the book we invite you to join the discussion.
I would like to add to the declaration that biblical polygyny is biblical and holy in the sight of the Lord.
In reference to David, a man after God’s own heart was declared righteous before the Lord. If we believe that the Holy Scriptures are of God and pure (Psalms 12:6-7) then we must submit our thoughts to what the Lord declared concerning David when stating: 1 Kings 15:4-5
Nevertheless for David’s sake did the Lord his God give him a lamp in Jerusalem, to set up his son after him, and to establish Jerusalem.
Because David did that which was right in the eyes of the Lord, and turned not aside from ANY thing that he commanded him ALL the days of his life, save only in the matter of Uriah the Hittite.
Now we must ask ourselves is God ignorant of David’s sin of “polygamy” or was God fully aware of David’s 18+ wives even to the point HE gave them to David for a blessing? If God declared David followed ALL His commandments except with Bathsheba and Uriah then how could David be against God’s will in having multiple wives?
