« Darwin's Heretic | Main | Why Would God Want Us to Praise Him? »

January 29, 2012


I listened to Greg Koukl's January 15 radio program yesterday. He took a call on why the Bible doesn't say more against polygamy. He made some good points, but didn't say much on the subject. There's a lot more anti-polygamy material in scripture than he suggested, and neither he nor the caller discussed the patristic evidence, which is highly significant in this context. My position is that polygamy is condemned not only by the New Testament and patristic Christianity, but also by the Old Testament. For those who are interested, I wrote a post several years ago addressing all three (both testaments of scripture and the patristic literature). Read the comments section of the thread as well, since a lot of relevant material comes up there, and I interacted with some defenders of polygamy.
