Just who do you serve?

robot armyAbout a year ago, while reading John Witte, Jr.’s The Western Case for Monogamy over Polygamy, I came across a quote that rocked my world!

Plato’s student Aristotle (384-321 BCE) viewed monogamous marriage as the foundation of the polis.

-Witte Jr., John, “The Western Case for Monogamy over Polygamy (Law and Christianity), Kindle version, p. 105

More than 600 years before Yeshua, Greek philosophers and jurisprudence began to intentionally limit marriage to monogamy-only (Numa’s Law) for the purpose of moving loyalty from the family to the State! 

Wrap your mind around that!

Put another way, they understood that patriarchy keeps wealth and power within family, exactly as God designed, and powerful families could not be controlled by the State. (In a Republic, the undesired patriarchal families would have wealth and voting power blocks unto themselves. ..)

A recent article by Brian Somers that I highly recommend you ponder titled, Educating Our Children; The battle between patriarchy and the polis, really exposes the Greco-Roman root of mass public education that begins inculcating children as early as three years of age.

As a strong advocate for the restoration of kol Israel, both houses, I can tell you that the more I study and understand the family structure allowed by Torah, the more I understand God’s reasons why He allows (even mandates in cases) polygyny.  Repentance and correct understanding of Biblical marriage structure is essential to the restoration of Israel.  There is no way around this!!

I will not belabor the point, but I recommend you read and ponder Somers’ short but pithy article as the message is critical and writ large!  Just who do you serve?

Shalom!
