Part 2: Is Polygamy Allowed in the Bible?

Episode68: Part 2: Is Polygamy Allowed in the Bible?


Well here is Part 2 where we talk about Designing your relationships in a way that is ethical and conscious for you.  My special guest is former Pastor Raymond Harris again and we get into Part 2 of his deconstruction. The deconstruction of his faith and his beloved scriptures.  Raymond went to Bible School to learn how to study the Bible and teach it effectively.  He calls himself a “logician” using logic and hermeneutics to interpret the “Word of God”  

What do you do when someone in your congregation asks you if Polygamy was allowed in the New Testament?  Well, listen to this two part series about questioning what you’ve always known.

If you grew up in the church, this conversation will be refreshing and eye opening.  Questioning my faith and my programming was one of the most difficult things I have ever gone through in my life.  It was scary and frustrating.  It felt lonely and isolated from everything I had ever known.  It’s hard to comprehend how challenging it is to have your whole world, everything you’ve ever known, come crashing down around you.  Unless you have been a part of a fundamentalist religion, you have no idea how much bravery this kind of investigation requires.

I wanted to have a two part series really delving into the deconstruction process and what that looks like.  I know that these kinds of conversations helped me so much when I was going through this difficult journey 15 years into my “perfect” Christian marriage.

Raymond still loves to study the Bible and quotes several verses during this enlightening conversation.  He says, “I have navigated away from the professional business arena. I observe life, reflect, meditate, and participate in day-to-day life, primarily interacting face-to-face with individuals, providing personal, relational, and spiritual insights and general life guidance.”

Grab a warm mug of something yummy and get cozy.  This is a long one but is so interesting.  I hope you enjoy it and if you resonate with any of this, please reach out.  It’s not easy to go through this alone.  It’s why I do what I do.  I am so passionate about Breaking Free Authentically.  I thought it was a great way to end 2023.

We will take a couple weeks off for the Holidays.  We will be back the 2nd week of January with the episode I know you’ve all been waiting for, EPISODE 69!!!!

This would not be a sex positive podcast if we did not do something special for episode 69.  I will be bringing back one of my hilarious guests Topher Lynn the creator of "Sip, Strip or Smooch" for this episode.  Please send in your questions!!! Do you have any burning questions that you want to ask us? Please send them in. You can email or DM me or simply put them in the FB group.

Here is the link to “Unprotected Texts:The Bible's Surprising Contradictions About Sex and Desire” by Jennifer Wright Knust if you are interested in reading it.  I highly recommend it.

What did you learn today?  Did you relate to this experience?  How many of you have left your faith or questioned your deep rooted beliefs?  DM me.  I’d love to know who you are.  Let us know in the FB group.  I’m here for you.  If you are ready to really shift that deep rooted programming, I’m your girl.  My 8 week program, Breaking Free from Conformity is for you!

You will learn to question what you’ve always known in a comfortable way.  I want to help you avoid the pain, anguish, confusion, and loneliness  I went through as I weeded through my beliefs, expectations, and judgments about relationships and sexuality.  Join me and Break Free from the shame that is still holding you back from your deepest authenticity and truest version of yourself.

As I always say,

“When it comes to Sex Positivity, Authenticity is the Key!”

You've heard, “Sex is wrong! Relationships are supposed to be hard work!”

What you probably didn’t learn is that sex is empowering and that relationships can be free, and fun, and empowered all at the same time! Karine kicks shame and guilt to the curb so that you can live your most authentic life the way that you want to.

She never in her wildest dreams imagined living the Empowered, Sexy, and Authentic life that she lives right now. Discovering Sex Positivity was the catalyst that allowed her to step out and explore a whole new world of possibilities! She is a Bible School Graduate turned Playboy Enthusiast! While studying the “worst of the worst”, she found her people.

Life is not always what we’ve been taught. Karine uses her magnetism, deep love of people and intuition to release her clients from the societal and religious boxes that they have been programmed into. She wants to inspire people to live their truth and discover their often deeply buried sexual desires and bring them to life in a safe and ethical way that empowers them and their relationships.

She is normalizing Ethical Non-Monogamy. She wants couples to step out and discover the beauty and power of true honesty, authenticity, and confidence in relationships. Looking at the world through a Sex Positive lens will absolutely shift how you understand relationships.

She uses her magnetism and transparency to make you feel safe and seen. Her intuition allows her to see exactly what is holding you back in life and her ability to really see you makes you feel accepted and safe with her. Through her openness and vulnerability she is able to transform your fears into joy and excitement. She is the best at bringing you safely into this Sex Positive world without fear or regret. She guides you every step of the way.

She wants more for you than the script you’ve been fed, “Find your soulmate, marry them, and be monogamous forever!” There is so much more than this in life. Step out and finally Break Free!
