Marriage

 

 

15. How should we behave toward a believer who is a former Muslim and has more than one wife? Should we command him to keep one wife and to send the others away?

 

 

Not at all. He must not send away any of his wives because he was already in that situation when God called him. This believer must keep these words of Paul: “Let each one remain in the same calling in which he was called ….Brethren, let each one remain with God in that state in which he was called” (1 Corinthians 7:20,24 - NKJV). However, he cannot become a bishop because a bishop must be the husband of one wife (1 Timothy 3:2).
