What Do Surveys Say About Polygamy?
Survey Says... Christians Are Divided On Polygamy
One survey illustrates just how divisive this issue is. A survey was created on 8/20/2006 by sermonaudio.com, a reformed website. The question posed was:
"Polygamy - What do you think the Bible teaches about it?" As of July 27, 2007, out of 973 total votes, here were the results:
Polygamy has always been sinful. 37% 364 votes
Polygamy was permitted in the Old Testament but is now sinful under the new covenant. 20% 193 votes
Polygamy is not sinful, but is unwise as it is not God's ideal of one man and one woman for life. 10% 100 votes
Polygamy has always been allowed by God, just like celibacy and monogamy. 21% 202 votes
Polygamy is the Bible's preferred form of marriage. 7% 64 votes
