Paul’s Perspective on Polygyny

Is it possible that the vow taken by the groom in the traditional Christian ceremony to “forsake all others” is rooted in Gentile tradition and law and without biblical justification? Is it possible Christendom has used Pauline verses, improperly translated and incorrectly understood, to prop up a position he never took and likely never believed? Does research actually show that the real root of monogamy-only is entirely Greco-Roman, used to empower the State and reduce the authority and power of men and their families?

Take a hard look at a few passages written by Paul within the historical and cultural context of his writing and see what the truth may be. Read the newest paper in our Articles section titled, Paul’s Perspective on Polygyny.
