We know that Christian Polygamy is certainly right and Scriptural.
But we likewise know that the millions of our fellow Christians
in the Churches do not realize this.
This ministry of TRUTH BEARER is about helping us
to be able to SUCCEED in so PERSUADING,
as this ministry has been successful in persuading
Christians who had previously been "against polygyny"
as even a concept.
Unless we learn how to be successful in persuading
the Churches and our women in particular, Christian
Polygamy will not advance.
But that's why the Lord has raised up this ministry,
for this very purpose.
So, to achieve our Mission of Bringing Christian Polygamy
to the Churches, we must know and be aware of what
works and of what works against us.
Hopefully, this off-the-cuff post here shall try to address
the most urgent matter before us in this.
One can seek to use FORCE or one can seek to use LOVE
(or as we now say about the latter view here, love-not-force).
Obviously, because of this ministry's Vision,
The TRUTH BEARER Vision of love-not-force,
this ministry is about teaching how to succeed in persuading
others through the message and ministry of love-not-force.
For the benefit of further understanding, here's even
more reasons as to why FORCE is so dangerous
to us in Christian Polygamy, and why we should ever
be "on guard" looking to see if someone is
trying to make Christian Polygamy appear to
be represented by the FORCE view.
Mind you, this is not talking about men who might
simply have made a mistake in coming off as
Nor is this talking about those who are simply seeking
to more fully understand the truth.
Not at all, for this ministry is surely here for such ones
and their families.
And for that matter, this would also not be about
condemning any particular individuals who may have
indeed been outright advocates or "doers" of FORCE
polygamy. (It would ever be my prayer that any of
us, whenever any of us are told of things about which
we then realize, by the conviction of the Holy Spirit,
that we ourselves were doing something not right,
that any of us would and could repent and receive
forgivenness indeed. None of us is perfect,
and so each of us surely is capable of mistakes
and thus should be readily forgiven for our mistakes
as we repent.) May only love prevail in any of this.
This post here is only addressing the deliberate FORCE
view itself, as a purposeful belief-concept for supposed
doctrine of Christian Polygamy, and about what great
perils that that FORCE belief poses for us in Christian Polygamy.
No fingers are being "pointed at" individuals, only
the view of FORCE itself is being addressed.
And with that understood, may this surely be received
in the sincerest of love in which it is given.
