Are you bonkers? God gave David King Saul's wives when Saul died. Maybe you should research to know what the Bible actually teaches.
God allowed Sarah to Give Abraham her hand maid to wife to have a son by.
Moses had more than one wife. So did Solomon. A statement of information from wikipedia for you...
"Many of the Old Testament Prophets and Patriarchs had multiple wives, including Lamech, Abraham, Jacob, Esau, Gideon, Saul, David, Solomon, Rehoboam, Elkanah, Ashur, Abijah and Jehoiada. Some interpretations also suggest Moses had a second wife in Tharbis. Other polygamists identified in the Bible include Ahab, Ahasuerus, Ashur, Belshazzar, Benhadad, Caleb, Eliphaz, Ezra, Jehoiachin, Jehoram, Jerahmeel, Joash, Machir, Manasseh, Mered, Nahor, Simeon, and Zedekiah."
And you claim the OT prophets didn't endorse polygamy when they were polygamists themselves???? What, did they have 'extra' women to show to God's people that having more than one wife was bad and evil and showed having sex with them was called adultery and not to do it???? lolol....yeah right...
Wow way to take me out of context and build another straw man

I said endorse polygamy

So again what prophet claimed it was God's will to practice Polygamy.

You can go thru the OT and find Many prophets of God Sinning.

David killed his best friend to be a Polygamist and marry Bathsheba, by your logic thats ok too. you truly are a nutter.

No closest needed No Surprise.
So boo Surprise
Truth Matters
First, Smith never preformed a "legal" marriage to any woman. Therefore his 'marriages' to these women were about as legal as you marrying yourself to your favourite room.
Smith was only legally married to one woman. That is why he was never arrested for bigamy. If you read the history of Smith during his polygamous years, you will note he was taken to courts for almost any charge he could be charged with except bigamy. There was no proof he was married to any one but Emma. And not a single wife had a child to be used to prove adultery and proof bigamy took place.
I don't know about you, but I like evidence. Did Smith commit bigamy by the act of intercourse which produced one or more children to prove beyond doubt he was a bigamist? No. Thirty plus women in three years and not a single one can be proved to have had even an abortion or a still born infant. Yet Smith and Emma kept popping out the kids with no problem. Yet in a three year period with having sex with over thirty women for probably hundreds of times and he doesn't score a single solitary kid.
Yet his elders he gave permission to have multiple wives, they were having still born deaths and living children while Smith was alive.
I guess by your logic, we could just lamely say Smith choose the wrong 30+ women because he sure the heck wasn't infertile.
Oh, and then get this one. This is a real gasser! So Smith dies and most all his wives remarry legally and illegally and suddenly miracles of miracles, with their new husband they start popping out kids left and right! Three years with Smith and 30 women remain childless. After being married a year to their new husband and they just start popping out the kids.
Yeah, only an idiot would believe that just maybe Smith married those wives for something else besides sex :)

I wasn't disputing that Smith did 'his own' marriages to over 30 women in three years. I stated not a single one was a marriage that was legally recognized by any state in the union. Understand?
We can claim Smith married other men's wives all we want. But legally he never did it. If he had legally married another woman in a court house he would have been guilty of bigamy. Understand?
We can say he married a thousand women. But unless it was done by the power and the authority of what ever state they were in, the marriage was a 'fake', a 'fraud','a pretend event','a thing of wishful thinking'. Understand?
Smith was legally married to one woman and pretended to be married to thirty plus other women. Get the difference? Talking like Smith was actually married to those thirty plus women as if they were legal marriages, I don't care who states it, is a stupid thing to say in my opinion.

You should really read both sides of the story before you jump on one version and claim it's the truth. Just saying.
By the way, you don't remember what you said so I'll paste your own words :)
"With Regards to the old Testament and Polygamy the OT is quite Clear it was not God's will nor does he command anyone in the OT to have more than one wife in Fact the Word of God clearly states that it was King David's Polygamy that lead to his demise. The OT clearly reveals that Polygamy is not God's will but you would once again have to have done some OT research to know that Truth."
So I didn't take you way out of context. You said it wasn't God's for any one in the OT to have more than one wife. But in fact it states God gave David King Saul's wives after his death. Most would say that's God endorsing polygamy, a man having more than one wife. And David had married a few women prior to Bathsheba. And in that time period before Bathsheba while marrying those women, David was called a man of God and a righteous man. The OT disagrees with your opinion and that's not a straw man argument.
Also, these prophets and leaders of God all had polygamous marriages: Lamech, Abraham, Jacob, Esau, Gideon, Saul, David, Solomon, Rehoboam, Elkanah, Ashur, Abijah and Jehoiada. Is it your opinion God was allowing these men to be both prophets and leaders while sinning by having more than one wife? Seems a strange thing to do by God according to your logic to allow a man to have such a lofty position and be a wilful sinner at the same time.

Actually God instructed Abraham: the father of all the Abrahamic religions, Jews, Christians, Muslims,
to take another woman who was considered, as less legally so,
than a wife, to give him a child; even though for whatever
apparently political reasons the woman couldn't inherit.
Claim to not know of this is the work of a posturing bullshoot from word one.

to live for God,
in so many things he told them how many tassles

GOOGLE JEWISH POLYGAMY and then try to explain to us your 1500s bible is more authentic than their 1500 BC or whenever Abraham and his additional concubine if not a wife.
Tell the Jews they didn't practice polygamy from the earliest days of a national Israelite law.
They'll laugh in your face.

Acceptance of polygamy or not is no proof you're a people of God; indeed, rejection of it is proof your people think they have a better way than whoever told Abraham;
than whoever told Moses:
==========
than whoever told every Jew ever born before the year 1,000 or so, he better polygamously marry his deceased brother's wife and raise up a family to that man, if need be.
==========
There were other mandates on taking plural women as personal protectorates and inheritors of men's legacies.
==========
The very society Jesus Christ set up to select men after his own heart was famously polygamous as mentioned briefly in your edited version of the ways Jews lived then;
but, as I said, I Googled "Jews Polygamy" and you're revealed an insolent insulter of the God who sent you Jesus Christ, your Father

You sound like a Canadian environmental wacko screaming about Climate Sin.

Unless you can certify all that documentation on GOOGLE/BING is none of God's most critical characters having not just multiple wives but multiple women,

Let's go over this for you.
God set forth prophets and leaders.
Many of those most notable prophets and leaders engaged in polygamy.
But you stated God didn't support polygamy.
Yet we know on one occasion God gave David, a righteous man, a man of God (before he became king) the wives of King Saul. Now consider that. God, who you claimed is against polygamy, who you claimed didn't support polygamy, engaged David to be a polygamous leader.
And that means nothing to you? Why am I not surprised :)

The above is God speaking to David after David had Uriah killed so he could have Bathsheba.
Now note that God stated what all of King Saul's that God had given to David, including the word "wives". To have given David "wives" and than to state if those things hadn't been enough and if David had wished for more, God would have given him more, including "more wives", that is God ENDORSING the act of POLYGAMY.
And no prophet had to claim anything about polygamy. If polygamy had been against the will of God, not a single prophet/leader would have had more than one wife IF, they trully were obeying God's commandments so they would remain a "prophet and or leader" of God's people. Righteousness before God allowed them to be a prophet/leader. If polygamy was against the will of God, God would have taken them away from their position as a prophet/leader. But he did no such thing.
And not a single prophet/leader was ever accused of by God as sinning because they had more than one wife. Never said in a single verse.
The only prophet/leader that was said to have did "ill" because of the wives he had was Solomon. And that was because Solomon had went beyond having the wives God allowed him to have. Solomon began to marry women of his own choosing and their theistic beliefs turned Solomon from the Lord.

Again read the evidence first hand most of it and most of it from LDS members who helped him have cordial visits with these women he was married to. That prove he hat intercourse with many of these women. You will need a week to through all of it I will be here when you get back from doing your homework.

NOW since when did it matter to the LDS whether these marriages were legal under US LAW, again if we are to take your pseudo logic to its natural conclusion then not one temple marriage is valid or real because the US government does not consider them a legal marriage. So you can't have your cake and it too. What matters is the LDS of his day believed they were marriages before God as did J.S>, YOU not only make straw men arguments you are now pulling at straws in a desperate attempt to hold on to that which you know is a lie.

Truth Matters LDS are not Christian the Bible tells us so.

Well I see you can read but just not far enough lets continue....
2Sa 12:8 I gave your master’s house to you, and your master’s wives into your arms. I gave you the house of Israel and Judah. And if all this had been too little, I would have given you even more.
2Sa 12:9 Why did you despise the word of the LORD by doing what is evil in his eyes? You struck down Uriah the Hittite with the sword and took his wife to be your own. You killed him with the sword of the Ammonites.
2Sa 12:10 Now, therefore, the sword will never depart from your house, because you despised me and took the wife of Uriah the Hittite to be your own.’
2Sa 12:11 “This is what the LORD says:‘Out of your own household I am going to bring calamity upon you. Before your very eyes I will take your wives and give them to one who is close to you, and he will lie with your wives in broad daylight.
2Sa 12:12 You did it in secret, but I will do this thing in broad daylight before all Israel.’”
2Sa 12:13 Then David said to Nathan,“I have sinned against the LORD.”
Nathan replied,“The LORD has taken away your sin. You are not going to die.
2Sa 12:14 But because by doing this you have made the enemies of the LORD show utter contempt, the son born to you will die.”
took the wife of Uriah the Hittite to be your own.’ you see to take the woman to be your own is to have sex with her.
When God gave Saul's house to him it is not stated that he is to take them as his own. We can see from this text that to take another man's wife brings Judgement David's house will always see the sword, and his son will be taken from him and his wives.
This whole story is God revealing his Character ONE HUSBAND one BRIDE
You presuppose that because God Gave Saul's wives to him that he takes them as he is own ( if he was just he would of released them and cared for them). But the text does not state he took them as his own you assume he did but that would be a grave mistake as if you had choosen to read further it is clear God disapproves of this as he does not condone his actions but judges them Severely.
Again God never condones Polygamy, Neither God nor his Prophets ever decrees a man to take more than one wife, all the examples of men taking more than one wife lead them to Spiritual Blindness and Judgement.
Maybe that's why J.S. died in a Jailhouse shoot out, it lead him to a horrible and shmaful end.

to defy the entire regional crossroads politics till the END of the WORLD, one day:
Yes that Moses:
he had at least one more wife.
==========
GOOGLE JEWISH POLYGAMY and then try to explain to us your 1500s bible is more authentic than their 1500 BC or whenever Abraham and his additional concubine if not a wife.
Tell the Jews they didn't practice polygamy from the earliest days of a national Israelite law.
They'll laugh in your face.
==========
Acceptance of polygamy or not is no proof you're a people of God; indeed, rejection of it is proof your people think they have a better way than whoever told Abraham;
than whoever told Moses:
==========
than whoever told every Jew ever born before the year 1,000 or so, he better polygamously marry his deceased brother's wife and raise up a family to that man, if need be.
==========
There were other mandates on taking plural women as personal protectorates and inheritors of men's legacies.
==========
The very society Jesus Christ set up to select men after his own heart was famously polygamous as mentioned briefly in your edited version of the ways Jews lived then;
but, as I said, I Googled "Jews Polygamy" and you're revealed an insolent insulter of the God who sent you Jesus Christ, your Father
in Heaven. Just pure evil.
Your "posturing ignoratti" costume
has too many holes to justify claiming to think you're anything but some fanatical
troll.
When you start discussing Jewish history and lying like that, it's as easy
to check as Bing/Google.
That's how I found most of that out.
So if you had really wanted to be involved in any truth telling,
you wouldn't have shown up
lying through your teeth
that even conceptually,
it might somehow be anything but
bald faced lying
without regard
for God above,
to
claim
to
"not know."
You sound like a Canadian environmental wacko screaming about Climate Sin.
You had better grow up.
Unless you can certify all that documentation on GOOGLE/BING is none of God's most critical characters having not just multiple wives but multiple women,
you're the one who's the pathological liar, nutter.
Where to begin with this Absurd post its hard to decide.

I will just point out that Abrabham took a second wife not because God told him to but because he his faith was weak and he did not Believe God could have really meant his 100 Sara who was barren could have a child.

I will let you read how that worked out for him.

The Only thing you got right is I am a Canadian, your fishing was succesful on that.

However I agrue against Climate Change and Global warming and I am on a deep water Drill ship to boot.

So I will give you a couple of minutes to wipe the mud of your face.

BTW If Google and Bing are your Bible let me know so I know where you are coming from. Are you LDS?

You stated the following... "It was clearly against the Ten Commandments for a man to marry a woman who was already married."
You now state that two commandments, one concerning adultery and one concerning not to covet actually were commandments that were really saying you can't marry more than one wife. You're off your fricking rocker.
You stuck your foot in your mouth and instead of pulling it out and rewording yourself, you shove it in deeper by using two commandments that have NOT A SINGLE THING TO DO WITH MARRING MORE THAN ONE WIFE...lol.
I'll say this again, there is no commandment not to marry more than one wife in the Christian ten commandments. And why don't you go ask Liam in the other thread. Go ask him if among the Christian's 10 commandments if one prohibits the marrying of extra wives. I dare you to do it :)
Still the dumbass. They do prove you can't marry a woman who is already married, which is what you wanted proof of, or are you too ignorant remember that? Oh, how you do love to change things after being shown with an idiot you are.
Again, being an intentional dumbass isn't going to save the perverted LDS church and it's sicko leaders.
