The man of God also said he would have loved to mind his business and not talk about it but he did because the question was directed to him.
According to Reno:
"I don’t think Polygamy is a sin. Scripture is crystal clear that God Himself gave David many wives-2 Samuel 12:8. Abraham, Jacob, and many Godly men were polygamists, and it was a regular way of life in Scripture amongst everyday people. For instance, Samuel’s father, Elkanah, was a polygamist-1 Samuel 1:2."
He also went further to state that polygamy is forbidden for Bishops. overseers and elders in the Church and declared that monogamy is a western construct, not a Christian one.
Reno finally said he will not counsel any man to marry more than one wife, but I will say that polygamy is by far better than adultery and fornication.
