Among consenting adults, family should be a matter of choice and the configuration thereof should be the choice of the family members. There are between 50,000 and 100,000 families in the U.S. living in polygamy today. Recently, these numbers began to climb rapidly as certain Christian, Islamic, and secular groups seek ways to live according to their convictions, in spite of federal and state laws. The growth is accelerating at a surprising rate. Yet, there are few resources and little information to help those seeking happiness in this way of life. This book is a primer for those wishing to seek fulfillment outside the confines of monogamy. As people search for and find their own happiness, the population practicing polygamy will soon grow large enough to have a voice loud enough to change the laws of the land from within. Polygamy may be the next movement in the search for individual freedom and happiness. Polygamy: The act of having more than one spouse. A husband having more than one wife or wife having more than one husband is called polygamy. Polygamy is a general term and exists in three specific forms: polygyny, polyandry, and polyamory. Polygyny: When a man has multiple simultaneous wives, the state is specifically called polygyny. You will also hear the term, “Plural Marriage” or “Celestial Marriage” used by the FLDS church when one husband has several wives. Polyandry: When a woman has multiple simultaneous husbands it is specifically called polyandry. Polyamory: Group marriage, where the family unit consists of multiple husbands and multiple wives, is specifically called polyamory. This book will look at polygamy, its forms, functions, history, logistics, strengths and pitfalls.

Somewhere in our antediluvian past mankind both technologically and socially surged forward in a single leap, from being hunter-gatherers to city dwellers and inventors, we intellectually bloomed in a second of historical time. For millions of years we, as a species, saw little change, but around the time primitive men began drawing pictures in caves depicting aliens, flying machines, and spacecraft suddenly everything changed and man began to invent, create, build, and imagine a future. Synchronicity of these events cannot go unnoticed. The development of the wheel, the building of ornate astrological temples, the invention of writing, math, and all the technology that would lead to the modern age took place in seemingly a blink of an eye. For millions of years humanoids struggled to survive with little discernible advancement in their technology or skills, then overnight mankind began to develop at an amazing rate. For 10 million years we lived as animals lived, as cave dwellers, hunting and gathering when we could where we could. Then they came, and everything changed. We began to read and write. We began living in cities. We began wild adventures of creativity. We built pyramids. We learned about the stars. We could predict solar and lunar events. We became brighter, more intelligent, certainly more creative and inventive. To what do we owe this quantum leap in our development? The mere act of discovering or learning does not answer the question fully. We were thinking differently, deeper, more logically. We were being changed, altered, our DNA being manipulated. We were being made better. But for what purpose and toward what end was mankind being changed?

Jesus and Mary – Husband and Wife? Who Were They and What Was Their Relationship?

The newly discovered, “Gospel of Jesus’ Wife,” revealed to the public in September of 2012, has reignited controversy over what is now mounting evidence that Jesus may have been married. Gospels and letters, some hidden by the church and some lost until recently, tell the story of who Jesus was, what he looked like, and who he married. Jesus of Nazareth and Mary of Magdala, were they husband and wife? The evidence is piling up.

The disciples said to Jesus, “… … Mary is worthy of it … …” Jesus said to them, “My wife … … she will be able to be my disciple … (Gospel of Jesus’ Wife) – And the companion (Consort) was Mary of Magdala.

The Lord loved Mary more than all the other disciples and he kissed her often on her mouth. The others saw his love for Mary asked him: “Why do thou love her more than all of us?” The Savior replied, “Why do I not love you in the same way I love her?” (Gospel of Philip) –

Peter said to Mary; “Sister we know that the Savior loved you more than all other woman. Tell us the words of the Savior that you remember and know, but have we heard and do not know. Mary answered him and said; “I will tell you what He hid from you.” (Gospel of Mary Magdalene) –

Simon Peter said to them: Send Mary away from us, for women are not worthy of this life. Jesus said: See, I will draw her into me so that I make her male, in order that she herself will become a living spirit like you males. For every female who becomes male will enter the Kingdom of the Heavens. (Gospel of Thomas)

Dr. David E. Martin, U.S. Congressional and E.U. Parliamentary policy adviser in global finance and ethics, came to international notoriety for his data analysis in his disclosure prior to the global financial crisis in 2008. His real-life insight and witness to corruption in the highest places has given way to a novel about the truth that befalls us. In a world where people have control in only the most mundane daily decisions, there are those manipulating nations at the highest levels. They are thieves of empires and emperors of the world.

Race across the globe with Dr. Cyrus Alexander as he roars to life in David Martin’s inaugural novel. From the windswept steppes of Mongolia to the sweltering desert of Dubai to the rooftop bars of Manhattan, this epic thriller weaves the global political events of the past twelve years into a tapestry so close to believable that it will leave you wondering where the line between fantasy and reality is drawn. The audacity of stealing all of the G-7 assets right out from under the noses of the world’s self-proclaimed elite is so amazing it would not have to be hidden. No one would believe it. A conspiracy to overthrow those powerful men alleged to be the puppet masters of the world goes beyond the imagination of most, leaving names like Rockefeller, Morgan, Kennedy, Rothschild, Oppenheimer, Blankfein, and Goldman scratching their heads. The manipulators are manipulated as power flows rapidly up to the shadowy, cloud-covered pinnacle of lies and deceit.

The Didache: The Teaching of the Twelve Apostles: A Different Faith – A Different Salvation

Containing the Didache in English and Greek, The “Q” (Source) Document, and the Book of James.

What form did Christianity take in the first thirty years? Before the Jewish Christians were slaughtered by Rome and before the emergence of the Pauline sect, while the faith was still under the guiding hand of James, the brother of Jesus, what did the pure and unaltered church look like? By examining the Didache, the “Q” document, and the book of James we will look back into the first years of the faith. The difference between the beliefs of the apostles and modern Christianity will astonish you. The Didache is a manual written by the early Christians, a break away sect of Judaism, instructing converts on how to be Christians and how to conduct themselves in daily life. It is a magnificent view of the beliefs and rituals of the earliest form of Christianity as propagated by those who knew Jesus best; his brother and the original apostles. By the time of the Roman massacre of the Jews (66 C.E. – 70 C.E.) there were three major division in early Christianity: the original Jewish Christians, the gnostic Christians, and the quickly growing Pauline sect that was breaking away from its more formal Jewish roots. There was a one in three chance of the Pauline sect becoming the template of the Christianity of today. Had the war between the Romans and Jews not happened or had Paul failed to convert enough gentiles to his sect to outnumber those who followed James we could have a Messianic-Jewish based Christianity today. Our canon and our worship would be different, but because it would have been accepted, orthodox, and traditional, Christians would follow it as they follow the Pauline sect now. It is only by chance, or by the hand of god that the Didache is not the main document of catechism in the church today.
