Polygamy is an issue that needs to be understood from the Bible as a whole. In the beginning of the creation, God joined one man (Adam) and one woman (Eve) in marriage together. When man sinned against God, man also began to change what God had designed for marriage. For instance, Lamech, from the line of Cain, was the first polygamist recorded in Genesis 4:19-24.

Is Sexual Lust in Matthew 5:27,28 Parallel To Committing Fornication in Matthew 19:9?

Pornography is a prevalent immoral problem in our world. It can be found in magazines (Playboy), videos, movies, and the internet.

The only scriptural reason given by Jesus whereby an “innocent party” in a God-joined marriage can divorce and remarry is “for fornication” (Matthew 19:9; 5:32). Lust (what some call “spiritual adultery”) is not the same act as fornication (one is mental the other is physical/fleshly, 1 Corinthians 6:18; Ephesians 2:3).
