Pastor Don's Translations of Great Works

Translation in progress.

Polygamy

Pastor Don's Translation of this rare Latin manuscript begins:

It is neither contrary to the law of Nature, nor in any way to that of the Gentiles, but rather, most fitting, that if indeed we see the man by nature obtained thus: that he may for extended years, beget children, when by one woman such is not the case. Let us remember; God and Nature do nothing in vain. It is clear therefore that this is a talent to be a male, therefore entrusted with the task, not for the purpose of storing away in the earth, to make use of the language of Scripture, but in order to gain, and him to that end; to whom by God and nature, beggeting is meant to consecrate.

Pastor Don's Commentary: The author advocates for polygamy through the Parable of the Talents. A man, the author points out, is like a talent, his posterity not to be buried but multiplied. And what does the Lord say to the servant who multiplies that which was given unto his care?

"Well done, [thou] good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord."

See Matthew 25:14-30

Approximately 1000 words of this section remain to be translated.

Admonitions

They claim Adam as the model on which we should base our marriages and say that he was a monogamist. Ok, let's accept that at face value. Look what horror befalls Adam, the monogamist. He has but one wife, so not wishing to lose her he commits the original sin in accepting the forbidden fruit, thereby causing untold suffering not to mention the sacrificial death of our Lord and Savior Jesus in order to wipe that original sin away. Then his tiny monogamist family which is limited to just one birth per year, turns inward upon itself with the first born of a monogamist murdering the second born of a monogamist and then going out to be a monogamist himself! Oh what horrors monogamy causes! Of course I'm jesting. You know and I know that such arguments are ridiculous but no less ridiculous than the silly arguments of anti-polygamists against the polygamists.
