There seems to be a growing "Christian" polygamy movement. Even spreading to mainstream denominations. The logic being, "God said King David was blameless before him and he had hundreds of wives." Or, "Scripture had laws about polygamy but didn't condemn it." Most say the "leave and cleave" passages don't neccessarily exclude this happening several times. On and on it goes. Some of the more sensible ones will acknowledge the qualifications for Elders and Deacons of having one wife. But they see all others as fair game. Here is a recent argument I heard: Numbers 3:40-43 provides us with a census of the firstborn in Israel. The number given is 22,273 firstborn sons. We may safely conclude there were at least 22,273 families in Israel, since a family cannot have more than one firstborn son. There were, no doubt, families which had no sons. That has no bearing upon this remarkable fact: 22,273 families are responsible for a total count of over 600,000 fighting men (Numbers 1:46). If you take 600,000 and divide it by 22,000, you get 27. The average Israelite household with sons had 28 of them! The patriarch Jacob required four wives to get twelve sons. Is it too much to suppose that the typical Israelite needed twice as many wives to get 28 Sons? What about the daughters? If there was a daughter for every son, then there was 56 children per Israelite household, on the average scale. There is no way to know how many wives the average Israelite may have had, but it is impossible that the average woman could have had 56 children. Israelite society was a polygamous society. The host of this website, Vox Day, is a professed "Southern Baptist Christian Libertarian." He claims that the ideal for Christians is NOT TO BE married as the Apostle said (according to him). Some of this is so elementary and foolish, I've found myself at a loss for just where to begin on this thinking. Dumbfounded.
