No Bible verse is against polygamy – Pastor

.

.

Rev Vincent Mulwa, a theologian and G.O of Christ Pilgrim Restoration Centre, Kenya, has come out to challenge the widely-held Christian doctrine that men should only marry one wife.

.

.

He said Africans bought the world views of European missionaries who brought Christianity into Africa and abandoned polygamy, a practice that was rife even among the people who lived during biblical times.

.

.

He said he wants Christian leaders to review teachings on monogamous marriages, claiming there is no verse in the Bible supporting it. Mulwa says this is necessary to “save a generation of women who are ageing in church without husbands”.

.

.

“I have been in the ministry for 38 years, preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ but now I have realised that we ministers of the gospel have lost our believers,” he said during an interview.

.

.

Rev Mulwa argues that many women are ending up unmarried and others are single and widows after they fail to get husbands. Speaking further, he added that: “I have never seen anywhere in the Bible where prophets and preachers prayed for single ladies to get married.

.

.

The Bible people were polygamous and everyone had a husband,” adding that widows were allowed to become concubines.

.

.

He says polygamy was commonly practised by many African traditional communities and the Jewish culture was also polygamous, adding that it only began to fade with the introduction of Christianity.

.

.

“As far as the Bible is concerned, the number of wives or concubines that one has does not matter and is not a standard of holiness,” he says.

.

.

He adds: “I have come out to tell Christians that we must preach the true gospel and allow our men in the church to marry as many wives as they want. Polygamy is not about men needing many wives but it’s about women needing husbands.”
