Andy said: "Some of the posts in this thread have cited David and Solomon (or even Abraham) as proof that God approves polygamy or polyandry". If you are referring to my posts then you didn't read them very carefully or you missed the point entirely. I didn't say that God approved these sins. God is absolutely holy and cannot approve sin! But God does forgive sin and remits the sins of those who trust in Christ for salvation." Abraham believed God and it was reckoned to him as righteousness." Jesus said that Abraham saw His day and rejoiced. Did you read my reference verses! Romans 4:1-9

Check in the Arc of the Covenant. I think someone left that chapter in there by mistake. Human error, ya know . . .

Could you show me where in the Mosaic Law polygamy is banned? Or where Jesus said it was a sin? Or Paul? The Bible is a rather large book, does it say anywhere that polygamy is a sin?

God's a lot more 'tolerant' of human foibles than we give Him credit for; He is too much the Gentleman to force His will on people who should know better. David was, after all, a man after God's own heart.

Yes, the eternal consequences of sin have been dealt with-in Christ those are gone-completely.

That is not the same thing as saying that the natural consequences of sin in this life won't have to be dealt with and reconciled on a personal level. We all have our challenges and our scars from sinning either in ignorance or by deliberate choice.

In July, 2009, Newsweek ran a feature article on “relationships with multiple, mutually consenting partners,” entitled, “Polyamory: The Next Sexual Revolution.” Last week, Showtime launched a reality TV show called “Polyamory: Married and Dating.” To quote from Newsweek’s 2009 article, it’s “enough to make any monogamist’s head spin.” And all this, of course, is being touted as a great thing, a celebration of love and freedom, a deliverance from the monotony and constraints of monogamy.

The Showtime promo pulls no punches and makes no excuses:
