    What does the Bible say about leaders of the church (preachers and so on having one wife. Are they qualified to preach

    Hi Donna.

    This is a highly debated topic.

    I believe the concept here is NO Polygamy.

    God made all of us able ministers with diverse gifts,

    We are a new creature in Christ.

    2 Corinthians 3:5-6. Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselves; but our sufficiency is of God;

    Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.

    1Ti 3:2 A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach; (the word bishop, elder, and deacon were interchangeable for overseer or leaders of the congregation)

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

    Tit 1:5 For this cause left I thee in Crete, that thou shouldest set in order the things that are wanting, and ordain elders in every city, as I had appointed thee:

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

    Tit 1:7 For a bishop must be blameless, as the steward of God; not selfwilled, not soon angry, not given to wine, no striker, not given to filthy lucre;

    God bless
