Marrying More Than One Wife Is Not A Sin Before God – Nigerian Pastor
Nigerian Pastor says Marrying More Than One Wife Is Not A Sin Before God
A pastor serving with the Presbyterian Church, Yaba, Lagos State, Reverend Nkanor Okon, has clarified that marrying more than one wife is not a sin before God.
The man of God said this in a post on his Facebook page which has generated several comments.
He said only pastors, bishops, priests are prohibited from marrying more than one wife.
The pastor, who is also a lawyer, wrote:
. “I repeat, polygamy is not stated anywhere in the bible to be sin.
“Only the Pastors, Bishops,Priests are prohibited from getting married to two or more wives. That, not because it’s sin, but, to Paul, it would distract them from full dedication to service of God. So that they’ll be able to manage their homes and the Church well.
“If you have what it takes to marry two wives, that’s your choice. God won’t judge you. You’ll not break any biblical law.
“But if you took the vow to marry one wife – in Court or Church, then stay with one wife. You sin if you break your vow.” The post read.
