I always wondered how Jesus gives grounds for divorce in Matt 5:32 when He said Mark 10:9 (never divorce).How do you feel about this?
Moses law allowed divorce for almost any reason. In Matt. Jesus lays the grounds for divorce.How do you feel about this?
So far the only people who have commented on this are men. Though I hope my opinion isn't viewed as a gender-biased one.How many whom have voted are men and how many women.
Just wondering what the gender split is.
I know in many discussion of divorce that genders think differently about it.
I read that in one of her books as well but can not remember its name. If you asked my wife, she would say the say thing and that is why I hide all the knives.During an interview Billy Graham's wife was asked if she had ever considered divorce,
her reply was "Divorce no, murder yes."
I hear you but that is not me. I advise to stay married, forgive and move on.Divorce is wrong, there is no way around that. Living a lie is also wrong. So if a couple cannot or will not reconcile and be faithful to each other they may be divorced. From the RCC and Orthodox point of view, divorced people should not remarry, they are essentially tainted goods. Protestants tend to be very liberal in their views on divorce and allow whatever the individual is comfortable with.
I'm not divorced,but the cat better watch out...
Jesus was talking to Jews.Peter(married) was the apostle to Jews,Paul(unmarried) was the apostle to the gentiles.So if Paul is
unmarried,that leaves the stay- marry-problem to the Holy Ghost.Jesus works through the Book.The GH works through the heart.
So,if a fellow church member is divorced,I don't advise them to stay single.I've seen divorce preceding couples getting married.
