Polygamy: If it’s not True, Faith is in Vain
Journal of Discourses 21:296; “…if plurality of marriage is not true… then marriage for eternity is not true, and your faith is all vain… for as sure as one is true the other must be true. Amen” – Apostle Orson Pratt, Salt Lake City, July 18, 1880
Matthew 22:36-39; “Master, which is the great commandment in the law? 37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.”
Mark 12:25; “For when they shall rise from the dead, they neither marry, nor are given in marriage; but are as the angels which are in heaven.”
Leviticus 18:18; “Neither shalt thou take a wife to her sister, to vex her, to uncover her nakedness, beside the other in her life time.”
Deuteronomy 17:17; “Neither shall he multiply wives to himself, that his heart turn not away: neither shall he greatly multiply to himself silver and gold.”
LDS scripture tells us one of the everlasting covenants is the commandment of everlasting marriage. This is nothing more than the teaching of plural marriage. In order for the Mormon to obtain a true salvation they must practice plural marriage (D&C 132:4) or they’ll be damned.
Immediately three verses from the bible come to mind proving the theory of plural marriage and marriage for eternity is nothing but a lie. What they should be focusing upon are the words of Jesus when He told the Pharisees the greatest commandment was to love the Lord with all your heart and to love your neighbor as yourself.
If they had obeyed those rules they’d know the other ideas are unbiblical!
