How the Koran has Changed God's Old Testament and New Testament Commandments on Monogamy and Polygamy

Let me close this part with one aspect of marriage that none of us contributors elaborated on so far. It concerns the fact that in the kingdom of Christ marriage is fundamentally based on love: "Husbands 'love' your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her" (Ephesians 5:25). I therefore conclude with Paul's great Hymn of Love, which describes the details of everyday marriage life:

"4 'Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant 5 'or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; '6 'it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. 7 Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things." (1 Corinthians 13:4-7)

This is the answer of the Gospel of Christ to the Islamic concept of marriage. It is our prayer, that our heavenly Father will grant you and us the grace that we may grow steadily in this heavenly type of love in our marriages to the glory of Christ our Lord and Savior. Amen.
