To all of my followers:
Please boost my last post. I tried to post about the groups on Facebook and immediately had people telling me “They have a right to freedom of speech”, so I deleted my status. These people are disgusting, racist, sexist, rape condoning pigs. I don’t believe people like that should be allowed to exercise their right for freedom of speech, especially on a public forum.
This post is sad because that’s the point of the ‘freedom of speech’. The rights listed aren’t a popularity contest or democratic in any way. It’s a protection of the individual from the group. If u believe that a homosexual should be able to speak openly about their same gender sexuality, then a heterosexual should be afforded the same protection to speak about mixed gender sexuality. If an atheist should be able to espouse that there is no deity of any kind, then theists should be able to espouse their deity. If rejection of speech that u like is wonderful, then speech u don’t like is equally wonderful. Just remember that being free to speak doesn’t mean that anyone’s going to listen. If I’m not ‘return following’ your blog, that’s why. I don’t want to listen to you. Get over it.
Thanks. I try to use sugar, honey, etc. I don’t care for artificial sweeteners. Ha! Ha!
I’m sorry that your marriage fell apart. Polygamy isn’t for everyone. Each has to be committed to the marriage or it’s doomed. Monogamy is often preferred because it allows the most flexibility in headship, submission, etc. It doesn’t take a spiritual giant to stay married to one woman for 50 years, just determination, stubbornness, bad circumstances, or a poor self-image of ‘doing better’. Poly, on the other hand, requires the best from everyone. One selfish baby will spoil the whole life for everyone. Someone will crack & down it goes. I’ve only had 2 wives since January, so I’m not an expert by any means. But we’ve weathered the early storms, & the tempests seem to be losing force & frequency: just like when I married my 1st wife.
Thanks for asking about this fundamental part of why I started this blog. Back in 2006, after a discussion about what the Bible says about sexual matters vs what my 1st wife & I had always been taught in church, I went on a thorough cover-to-cover study of clothes, sex, marriage, & divorce.
The clothing matter was fairly easy to summarize & list all relevant verses (2 pages).
The sex & marriage matter was a bit more complicated. It was not as cut & dried as most preachers want to claim. Lots of gray areas of “better vs best” instead of everything being “right vs wrong”. Even worse, there were a lot of personal preference items that are perfectly fine for one but ‘disallowed’ for another.
One item I found myself drawn toward was the idea of Christian polygyny (multiple wives). The reason I’ve not been as active lately is because I married a 2nd wife this past January & have been busy w work & learning handling 2 wives & 8 children.
The Bible isn’t a dry, droll, bland book. W a little bit of education & imagination u can open some fascinating looks into ancient life & it’s dual focus on food & sex. God is there from the beginning creating sex & pleasure for our benefit in this life & beyond. Minimal rules are given throughout to ensure the greatest happiness for all. Examples of failure to follow the rules warn to stay within the bounds.
Admittedly, many of the verses I use on this blog are misquoted, taken out of context, or simply given minimal editing to match the picture that would convey a different idea than originally intended. I think of it like a song that u know by heart like “Jingle Bells”. It’s no disrespect to “Jingle Bells” to sing alternate lyrics or rhyme it differently. Of all people God knows how to laugh at Himself & not take Himself too seriously. We wouldn’t know how to laugh if He didn’t. If u want to discuss a verse as used in Scripture w seriousness, fine. But My2Wives is a blog for fun, sexual fun, & laughing in thankfulness that God loves me so much that He gave me my 2 wives.
At current count, I have 1,007 followers. Thank you very much. New awesome multi-wife pix & blessing commentary will be coming soon. Enjoy!
What is the difference between passion, lust and desire. All three of these terms are similar in nature yet very different. I was asked once, do you love me or is it just lust? My reply, it is passion as well as desire.
let me know how some of you feel about this particular topic. I’d be very interested to know. After all each definition has its place!
Since the question has been posited, I’ll give my take.
LUST is a superlative of DESIRE w an animalistic connotation. A normal person may desire to eat food as is proper to live. Someone given over to their inner animal & forgetting their human capacity for self-control will lust for food: respond & behave out of pure physicality as though they have no mind or control at all. This is most common in regard to the sexual arena where people forget to say No & then wonder about the consequences afterward.
PASSION comes from the Latin ‘pathos’ which means ‘suffering’. A passion is one that hurts you to deny yourself & makes u feel most happy while working in the capacity. Artists often have a passion (“inner suffering”) to make their music or other artistic expression. The word is often used in the sexual arena because those people who lust feel pain & suffering when denying their body their object of desire. Hunger can be painful, but a passionate foodie will feel hunger more acutely by his focus on the pain thus driving his lust for food.
Where does love fit into all of this?
LOVE is the willingness to give yourself pain & suffering because of the betterment for another person. A parent with little money or food may willingly eat less & give themselves hunger pains in order to more properly feed their child. Sexually, that same parent might lust for their child, but in genuine love for the child, they won’t act on their lust but would rather endure the pain of unsatisfied lust than do anything to negatively affect their child’s proper maturation like incest or underage sexual molestation.
