WHEN A MAN GETS BUSTED IT IS NOT BY GOD BUT BY THE WIFE

THE WAR BETWEEN GOD AND RELIGION OVER AFFAIRS AND POLYGAMY


The book of Genesis starts with a monogamist relationship. Monogamy is a form of relationship in which an individual has only one partner during their lifetime or at any one time, as compared to polygamy, polyandry, or polyamory. As the scriptures progress in years the relationships changed from monogamous to polygamous. At no time does a man with multiple wives or concubines are commanded against such practice. Over 40 important figures had more than one wife, such as Esau (Gen 26:34; 28:6–9),

Elkanah (1 Samuel 1:1–8), and Solomon (1 Kings 11:1–3). Moses had 3 wives; Zipporah (Exodus 2: 21), the daughter of Hobab (Numbers 10: 29) and the Ethiopian woman (Numbers 12:1). The Old Testament includes a few specific regulations on the practice of polygamy, such as Exodus 21:10: "If he take (another) wife for himself; her food, her clothing, and her duty of marriage, shall he not diminish".


Polygamy is a marriage which includes more than two partners. There are numerous examples of polygamy among close followers, devotees, and the faithful to God in the Old Testament, but it is generally not accepted by contemporary Christians. Some Christians actively debate whether the New Testament or Christian ethics allows or forbids polygamy. Polygamy was not forbidden in the Old Testament. To be forbidden in the New Testament was more so incorporated by humans rather than God. Jesus never mentioned a monogamous relationships as the rule; it was not until Paul arriving on the scene when a monogamous relationship became a part of Christianity.


When men have affairs, they are not of sin unless it is with another man's wife. But married and having a relationship (affair) with a single woman cannot be differentiated from men of old to men of today in the laws. Neither testaments have laws and commandments against affairs or polygamy but there are some on the treatment of wives. The religious instructions around marital affairs are simply Christian dogma a principle or set of principles laid down by church authority as incontrovertibly true but not ordain by the laws of God. The laws of Moses for relationships were designed to prevent multiple relationships by women but ignored multiple relationships by men. God and religion are at odds concerning marital affairs, God ignores them and Christianity abhors them. God says nothing about them but on the other hand some religions presents them as a sin, but sin against who. Certainly not against God. So, when a man gets "busted" it is certainly not by God but by his wife.
