Is Polygamy sin? Does God command one thing but allow sin through polygamy?
While polygamy was practised by some of the Patriarchs and was permitted by the oriental culture and civil laws of their times, it clearly was not the ideal marital relationship blessed and approved by God. It is not even an acceptable practice in many modern cultures that permit casual living together and easy-to-obtain divorce.
God speaks and commands clearly against polygamy.
