Popular Catholic Priest, Father Oluoma Chinenye John has called out former Presidential aide, Reno Omokri for saying that the Bible supports polygamy.
This is coming after author, Reno Omokri and some Christian clergymen, reacted to the decision by presidential aspirant and actor, Yul Edochie to marry Judy Austin as his second wife.
According to them, they had claimed that the Bible is in support of polygamy.Reno Omokri had in a post on his verified Facebook page, said polygamy is only forbidden for bishops, overseers, and elders, insisting that “monogamy is a western construct, not a Christian one.”
Citing the old testament part of the bible, some other Nigerians have said that polygamy exists in the scripture and should not be ascribed to a sin.
But Father Oluoma, in a counter post, took to his official Facebook page and argued that no part of the bible justified polygamy.According to the priest, monogamy has been the ideal kind of marriage instituted by God since creation.
He said, “On polygamy, there’s nowhere the Bible mentions it as a doctrine. There are polygamous marriages in the Bible, but that doesn’t mean the Bible sets it up as the ideal.
“The language of Gen 2:24 is monogamy: “This is why a man (singular) leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife (singular) and the two become one flesh” Our Lord Jesus Christ will repeat the same thing in Matt 19.
“Monogamy is taken as the ideal way of marriage from the language of Gen 2:24: “that is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united with his wife, and they become one”. The language is singular and not plural.
“Then Adam was given one wife by God. If polygamy was the ideal, God would have given Adam more than one wife, the ribs to make more women were not lacking”.
