The biblical record says differently but we are free to differ. This assertion reminds of the people who claim that Jesus was a vegetarian. We try so hard to make God in our own image.

So EGW says that polygamy is a sin, but you say the Bible does not. We know that sin is living against God's law, so if polygamy is sin, it is not something that God shows favor to. This then leads me to ask who is wrong here? EGW, The Bible, or you?

That seems a bit of a stretch; we have record of Jesus eating no less that three different kinds of flesh, although all clean ones, but we have no record of God ordaining polygamy.

Excellent EGW quote, Dave, that obviously reveals that polygamy is indeed a sin, a terrible sin.

Why is the conclusion drawn on the basis of an EGW quote?

On the basis that she is God's appointed messenger, and that her writings are from God.

On what basis should we accept what you say here?

That would seem as good a reason as any could give!

We are all God's messengers. You should not just accept what I say here. The admonition of the Bible is very germane here. We should test everything that has passed through the minds of humans. There is not one human who has not been affected by misinformation and bias.

Darius, do you not do that yourself? You frame your image of God based upon your beliefs about Him. You’ve said as much that observation is primarily how you derive your beliefs. You paint your image of Him according to your interpretation of events, perhaps modifying that image as new events suggest. Where the scriptures, or EGW, or whomever seems to differ with your perception of observable facts, you go with your perception. Is that about how it works?
