Christianity and Polygamy

This site aims to provide a consistent and honest analysis of the Bible’s treatment of polygamy and the consequences this has in other areas of Christian doctrine. This involves acknowledging the differences between sexual morality in the Biblical worldview and the teaching of various modern denominations. The site does not support illegal or immoral relationships, and does not seek to promote polygamy.

Here you can learn how the Bible supports tolerance of polygamy, and what the Bible has to say about each of the objections to polygamy that Christians may have heard.
