    The problem with the above argument to me is the fact that the Bible never says anything about a "spiritual circumcision" eluding to polygamy. Matter of fact, Jesus actually has a parable where he cites himself as a bridegroom of 10 potential virgin wives, of which only 5 make it to the wedding.   The Bible shows the result of having multiple wives, and it never presents polygamy in a positive light. Marriage is to be a picture of the covenant Christ has with His church (2 Corinthians ), a picture that fits well with God’s plan that marriage is for one man and one woman for life.

Meaning of the Term: Polygamy has been and is the open blazon by the human race of sex vice. The very term is a misnomer. The Bible does not only teach us by its heroes’ faith and good choices, but also by their mistakes and sins. All the examples of polygamy in the Bible clearly teaches us how it results in extreme problems in the relationships. The original design of one man and one woman is clearly what God’s will is for us.
