Joseph Smith and His Many Wives

“A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach;” 1 Timothy 3:2

If any be blameless, the husband of one wife, having faithful children not accused of riot or unruly.” Titus 1:6

12 Let the deacons be the husbands of one wife, ruling their children and their own houses well.” 1 Timothy 3:12

16 - 1 (27)

“Mormon leaders have acknowledged for the first time that the church’s founder and prophet, Joseph Smith, portrayed in church materials as a loyal partner to his loving spouse Emma, took as many as 40 wives, some already married and one only 14 years old.”

    Yes. A harem of women. Not godly at all… but I can see why he has a big grin on his face!!!

    Seriously, without Jesus Christ the best intentions deteriorate but then from what I’ve read Joseph was a charlatan right from the start.
