Quoting Quiverfull: You Must Marry Her Before Having Sex, Slave or Free?

Quoting Quiverfull: You Must Marry Her Before Having Sex, Slave or Free? March 19, 2016

Editor’s note: Larry actually believes that concubines are a real Biblical idea that is alright as long as you make her your slave-wife. The frightening thing is that while this seems like a he’s an outlier in thought in reality this is what Christian Dominionists want to institute as law in this country. All the women, for all the sex, all the time.

While it is true that many pagan nations may have had “sex slaves” the people of God in the Bible were forbidden from such practices. If a man were to buy a slave woman (or acquire her in war) with the intent of having sex with her had to make the commitment of a husband to her.  He could not simply have sex with her and have no intent of making her his wife.

While it is true that a concubine was indeed a slave the truth is she was a wife as well.  Another way of stating this is truth is that in Biblical times all concubines were wives, but not all wives were concubines.

We have proven here from the Scriptures that God did not allow men to have sex slaves. They could have free wives or slave wives (concubines) but they had to grant the basic rights of a wife to any woman whom they desired to have sex with.
