Iowa View: 1 man, 1 woman isn't the Bible's only marriage view?

The debate about marriage equality often centers, however discretely, on an appeal to the Bible. Unfortunately, such appeals often reflect a lack of biblical literacy on the part of those who use that complex collection of texts as an authority to enact modern social policy.

As academic biblical scholars, we wish to clarify that the biblical texts do not support the frequent claim that marriage between one man and one woman is the only type of marriage deemed acceptable by the Bible’s authors.

The fact that marriage is not defined as only that between one man and one woman is reflected in the entry on “marriage” in the authoritative Eerdmans Dictionary of the Bible (2000): “Marriage is one expression of kinship family patterns in which typically a man and at least one woman cohabitate publicly and permanently as a basic social unit” (p. 861). ...

The other things to bring up are the qualifications for elders/deacons: "husband of one wife" (1 Tim 3). Leaders are meant to be followed and model correct behavior.

The bible is clear enough about its interpretation of a man marrying one woman and blesses this union with children. Sin is not recognized as sin anymore and its consequences are grevious.
How blessed are those children who can love a mom and dad whose lives are devoted to God and His commandments.

Ah Satan attacks Scripture yet again in order to establish perversion and ultimately of course abominations, in a depraved world.

The reprobates cannot read the Bible and this includes Satan's Liberals in both the church and the world.

NORMAL people know that marriage is between a man and a woman always has been always will be. Only this marriage is ordained of God.

But Satan will keep trying to destroy all that is Christian in the fallen society we live in, after all it is the battle which we were warned about.

In the beginning;
Gen 2:23 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. 24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.

If it was good enough for Jesus, then that means it's good enough for anyone!

Matthew 19
3 And some Pharisees came to Him, testing Him, and saying, "Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife for any cause at all?"
4 And He answered and said, "Have you not read, that He who created them from the beginning MADE THEM MALE AND FEMALE,
5 and said, 'FOR THIS CAUSE A MAN SHALL LEAVE HIS FATHER AND MOTHER, AND SHALL CLEAVE TO HIS WIFE; AND THE TWO SHALL BECOME ONE FLESH'?
6 "Consequently they are no longer two, but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let no man separate."---NASB

So according to this fella, there should be nothing wrong with reinstituting slavery. After all, it was common practice back in the day. Maybe we should start up animal sacrifices again, or annual invasions of our neighboring countries, or the stoning of adulterers, etc. I agree, this is just a bunch of post-modern moral relativism slop, and is a stench in the nostrils of God.

Ridiculous intellectuals. Why does it seem like the smartest people on the face of this planet are the haters, the athiests, the trouble makers when it comes to all things God? You would think that it should be just the opposite.
As for a man being meant only to be with a woman, the Bible is beyond clear so I never really get what the argument is. What bothers me more than anything is that the children are being raised to believe the complete opposite of what the Bible teaches in several areas. Without proper Christian parenting or God's Intervention, it's all uphill for these kids. Not unlike a child being raised Muslim, indoctrinated with filthy lies and taught to hate...this is a difficult thing to reverse as they mature. Sad, sad, sad.

This is another post modern attempt by the academic world to invalidate the Holy Scriptures. There is no denying that polygamy and the like were present in the times of the scriptures, but it does not mean God changes His mind about marriage or moral principles to fit the current culture. The author of this article makes the same contextual errors as other "scholars" of the Bible. He cuts and pastes certain texts to fit his premise rather than interpreting the whole scope and intent of scripture. If his relativistic reasoning were true, his argument is self-defeating because there is NO true base for morals and ethics within his paradigm. Basically he is saying we cannot trust anything or anyone, so "eat, drink, and be merry" or married, or whatever strikes your fancy.
