Hi from Australia

G’day from Australia. I have enjoyed reading the posts on here for a few months now and thought I might add a few of my own. In my country the only public discussion of polygamy that I am aware of, occurs in connection with the social practices of Muslim immigrants. There is zero concept in public thought of polygamy outside Islam. Religion in Australia is usually a private matter, whereas from a distance it appears religion in the USA is of much greater public concern. Of course the usual attempts towards legalisation of homosexual marriage are occurring; and public perception is that gay partnerships are fine. But I am pretty sure that polygamy would be perceived by the general public as 1. Outrageous Muslim behaviour that does not belong in this country, 2. An attempt at welfare fraud or 3. Religious nutters. Please note I am simply reporting on what I think public perception would be, not stating my personal opinion. In practice polygamy is ocasionally visible, if you know what you are looking for. Just the other day I noticed a family of Middle Eastern origin at the local shopping centre with one man, three women, and young children being passed around with obvious practice.

Crucified With Christ

As I look back on what I thought was living
I’m amazed at the price I choose to pay
And to think I ignored what really mattered
Cause I thought the sacrifice would be too great
But when I finally reached the point of giving in
I found the cross was calling even then
And even though it took dying to survive
I’ve never felt so much alive.

For I am crucified with Christ and yet I live
Not I but Christ that lives within me
His Cross will never ask for more than I can give
For its not my strength but His
There’s no greater sacrifice
For I am crucified with Christ and yet I live

As I hear the Savior call for daily dying
I will bow beneath the weight of Calvary
Let my hands surrender to His piercing purpose
That holds me to the cross but sets me free
I will glory in the power of the cross
The things I thought were gain I count as loss
And with His suffering I identify
And by His resurrection power I am alive

For I am crucified with Christ and yet I live
Not I but Christ that lives within me
His Cross will never ask for more than I can give
For its not my strength but His
There’s no greater sacrifice
For I am crucified with Christ and yet I live

And I will offer all I have
So that His cross is not in vain
For I found to live is Christ
And to die is truly gain

For I am crucified with Christ and yet I live
Not I but Christ that lives within me
His Cross will never ask for more than I can give
For its not my strength but His
There’s no greater sacrifice
For I am crucified with Christ and yet I live

Koinonia and Maranatha!

Anger / Submission Comparison

Had a thought that seemed profound to my Pooh Bear small mind, and thought it worth sharing. There’s an old saying that goes something like:

To be angry is easy. But to be angry to the right degree, at the right time, for the right reason, in the right manner, and towards the right person — these are not so easy.

It occurred to me that much the same could be said about submission. To be submissive is easy. Just give up self responsibiliy and become lazy. But to submit to the right party, in the right way, for the right reasons, to the right degree, and on the right occasion? Not so easy.

God tried to make it easy for our ladies — submit to your own husband as to the Lord. Not to someone else’s husband, or the pastor, or anyone else clamoring for your submission. Just … follow your husband’s lead.

For us fellas, it’s a bit more complicated. None of us argue that we need to submit when and where and how and why and to whom we are suppose to. The arguments, if any, center solely on what all those qualifiers might be.

Don’t want to start another "heated discussioon" here. Just sharing a personal thought for fun. Now, does anyone perchance have another jar of honey for a very hungry bear? :roll:

Who is like God? & Beloved Lily about to recieve the boot!

Dear Nathan and Biblical Family,

Please read "Our Polygamy Story" both in introductions and prayer requests to be caught up to speed. I "Who is like God?" posted them that might be an easier way to search. Who is like God? = Micah and my wife Beloved Lily = Amy.

We thought that things were going well with Alaynna, a desired candidate for a secod wife. She had not expressed disgust or even hinted that she thought that it was a superbly destructive sin. She had said that it was not for her, and that she did not think that she could ever see herself in the position, but then again that is what I said before I was motivated to make up my mind one way or the other. We had spent the last three months building a relationship with her and talking and discussing polygyny with her and she agreed at least once if not twice that it was most likely Biblical, but did preference such comments that it made her uncomfortable but that is as far as it went. She totally left out the feelings that are expressed in the letter below which was in response to us telling her that we saw her as a daughter of the Most High and as a qualified women to be a second wife and if she was at all interested in this we could perhaps begin to develop the relationship further and work out the social difficulties. Apologizing at least twice if we were to forward and had offended her. Well we obviously offended her because we were blindsided with some views that we did not think she held … at least not so firmly by the letter below.

"Micah and Amy,

Saturday, I was so excited to see all those flowers and that super neat manikin! A
nice early birthday present from my two friends. How awesome!… until I opened the
letter that came with it. I was and still am horrified and revolted, to say the least, at
this sexual perversion whitewashed as God’s calling and blessing. I met the floor in
sorrow wanting to vomit.

Micah, the past several months I have been uncomfortable in your presence…
