A theologian and The General Overseer of Christ Pilgrim Restoration Centre, in Kenya Rev Vincent Mulwa, has come out to challenge the widely-held Christian doctrine that men should only marry one wife.
Speaking the tabloid-Newsmen, Rev. Mulwa said Africans bought the world views of European missionaries who brought Christianity into Africa and abandoned polygamy, a practice that was rife even among the people who lived during biblical times.
Rev Mulwa said he would entreat Christian leaders to review teachings on monogamous marriages, claiming there is no verse in the Bible supporting it. He says this is necessary to “save a generation of women who are ageing in church without husbands”.
