Feeling lost in my faith..

Hi all,
For those who don’t know me well, I became a christian about 6 years ago on my own. I have never attended church services of any type. Years ago I simply began to feel a longing inside for something more and came to the realization it was a relationship with my Heavenly Father that I was missing. I began reading the bible on my own as well as various bible studies to try and come to an understanding of what being a christian meant. In 2005 I accepted Jesus Christ as my savior. Not long after, I came to a belief in plural marriage simply from reading the bible and realizing that it is an accepted type of marriage and the fact that there has never been any scripture to condemn it (and please don’t start with Mark 10:7 because it does not speak against polygamy in my opinion! LOL).
I have heard many of your stories about being shut out of fellowship and various churches because of your beliefs, and this has always kept me from even joining a church and attending. Over the years it has never truly bothered me that I don’t attend church with others, often my husband and I will have biblical discussions (he has not attended church for years but used to be very involved so he has a lot of knowledge), I read the bible as much as possible and I was doing some home bible study courses for the past few years provided by the world church of God until I ran into some things in one of their studies I did not agree with (surprisingly, the study’s topic was marriage and family! LOL). I guess it wasn’t until the last couple months that I have started to want something more in my faith. I have been to two BF retreats and my favorite part is the group fellowship and worship, especially the singing and Doc’s awesome prayers. It makes me happy to be able to worship with others, and I have been wanting that more and more as of late. So much so that I am considering just walking into a local christian church and going to services so I can get more of the same. I guess my m…

Ladies’ Fellowship

Today, in Arlington TX we had a wonderful ladies fellowship. In all 8 ladies showed up with 15 children. We had one token male who very graciously kept an eye on the children at the playground to allow his wives to fellowship too. Everyone brought some food and we all had a great time. It is amazing how quickly the time goes by when you are building relationships and getting to know one another. These are all people who are involved with our church/bible studies in some way or another.

It was a real blessing to spend time with these amazing mothers and their wonderful children. What a great day!

Intro & seeking fellowship in Charlotte NC area

Hello, My name is David. I am 43 years old and live in South Carolina just south of Charlotte NC. I was raised in the Baptist church and now I am more nondenominational following the ways of the Lord. I have been a believer in Christian Polygyny since I was in my mid 20’s but was always afraid to speak my heart about it to anyone else. Last November my wife came to me and actually suggested having another woman come into our lives. I was really taken by her suggestion as I didn’t think it was in her interest at all. We had never talked about it before so I began to pray to find the will of the Lord in our lives about this for us. Unfortunately what I was receiving from the Lord about her and I was not a positive one. God looks upon our hearts and He obviously saw something that was not healthy in her will towards the marriage that she and I had. Sadly after 9 years of marriage together she attacked our little boy and when I stepped in to protect him, she attacked me and now we are in the process of a divorce. I have custody of my two little boys now and they have been so awesome through all of this!

I believe that it is Our Heavenly Fathers will to be married again. So, ladies, I am open for friendships. Just thought I’d get the word out there.

I am looking for fellowship with like minded believers in the polygynous lifestyle in the Charlotte NC area. It can be men, women, families with one or two wives. It doesn’t matter. We are all a part of a huge family after all. I am seeking friendships with people that Love God and love others unconditionally as I do.

I have been a pastoral care counselor for the past 6 years and I specialize in relationships, intimacy and marriage counseling. Recently after expressing my views and taking a stand on plural marriages with church leadership without changing my mind I was asked to leave the church. I am in prayer about the next season of my life with my boys. I am in transition and all I can do in Joy is lift up mine eyes and raise…

Arizona Monthly Fellowship?

Hello Everyone,

We are hoping to start a monthly fellowship in Arizona (with the hopes of it becoming a "church" family). If you are interested in being a part of it, please let us know.

We have not settled on a location yet, but more than likely it will be in the Phoenix area.

We’ve been in ministry for many years (in a non plural marriage friendly environment) and are hoping to see the Lord do something wonderful in the lives of our segment of the body of Christ (a second wife entered our family a little over a year ago).

New fellowship opportunity! Paltalk room

This will be rolled out in the newsletter shortly, along with a bunch of new things for Biblical Families members, but you are welcome to check out it out now.

We now have our very own Paltalk chat room: http://www.paltalk.com/g2/group/1354973395/DisplayGroupDetails.wmt#
(If you don’t have Paltalk installed, you’ll have to do it at this point. And if you don’t have a Paltalk ‘handle’ yet (or even if you do), I’d suggest trying for the same handle you use here – that’ll let us know who you are over there easily.)

Stop by and check it out – You may catch our admin "Biblical Marriage" in the room, or one of the other BF staff members. On Saturday, you’ll get a chance to chat with a bunch of staff and other BF members.

Let us know what you think!

Nathan
