Marriage, divorce and remarriage!
For believers, it is really only death dissolves the marriage and permits remarriage
The Bible says in Proverbs 22:6: "Train up a child in the way he should go:
So he does not shy from it when he gets old. "
Scriptures on marriage, divorce and remarriage are rarely in the proclamation of our
days. A few decades ago, divorce rarely in the church. Now there is a huge avalanche of
divorce and the need to take these biblical words in the proclamation should therefore be large.
But why preached it almost does not and what happens to those who hear God's word and
teaching that marriage is until death do us? Instead, they have plenty of examples to look to the
marriages ending in divorce. As Christian leaders, who many people look up to, separate
itself, this is strong, negative examples.
1 Corinthians 6.9: "Or know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived;
Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor those who can be use to
unnatural fornication, or men who practice fornication with men .... shall inherit the kingdom of God. "
1 Thessalonians 4.2 to 5, "You know the the directions we gave you by the Lord Jesus. For this is God's will;
their sanctification: Stay away from sex. Each of you must know how to possess his vessel in
holiness and honor, not in passionate lust like the heathen, who do not know God. "
Marriage, a type of Christ and the church:
Ephesians 5.31 to 32: "Therefore shall a man leave his father and mother and cleave to his wife, and the two
shall be one flesh. This is a great mystery - but I speak concerning Christ and the church. "
Diabolos are the devil's name in Greek, and means: the brand! He hates what God has created.
Loving, faithful marriages and families are split, leading a lot of grief and despair with them!
The world should look at Christians and say, "See how they love each other!" Our marriage was
be a visible image of the love between Jesus Christ and His bride, the church.
You shall not commit adultery!
Matt from 19.4 to 6: "He answered and said, Have ye not read that He who created them from the beginning
made them male and female, and said cause shall a man leave father and mother and be joined to
his wife, and the two shall become one flesh? So they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore, the
God hath joined together, let man not separate. "
Mark 10.9: "What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate."
The Bible also speaks clearly about remarriage.
Luke 16.18: "Whoever divorces his wife and marries another, commits adultery. And
the one who marries a woman divorced from her husband commits adultery. "
Rooms from 7.2 to 3 "For the married woman is bound by law to her husband as long as he lives. But
if her husband dies, she is released from the law that bound her to the man. Therefore she is called
an adulteress if she, while her husband still alive, is another man's wife. But
if her husband dies, she is free from the law, and is no adulteress if she marries a
another man. "
Mark 10.11-12: "When they came into the house, his disciples asked him again about this. He says
to them, whoever divorces his wife and marries another, is guilty of adultery
against her. And if a woman divorces her husband and marries another, so
runs her fornication. "
Paul writes in 1 Corinthians as clear 7.10-11: "And unto the married I command, yet not I
themselves, but from the Lord: A wife must not separate from her husband. But she is separated from him,
She will either remain unmarried or be reconciled to her husband. And a husband must not divorce
his wife. "
We note that Paul refers to a word from the Lord. It provided only two possibilities for the
estranged wife: to remain unmarried or be reconciled to her husband.
The theory of the innocent party is based on Matthew 19, 9, where Jesus says:
"But I tell you, whoever divorces his wife for any reason other than fornication, and marries
with another woman commits adultery. And whoever marries a divorced woman, he does
From this it is believed to have coverage for a man who is divorced from his wife because she has
committed adultery can remarry. But such an interpretation violates the parallel Bible verses that are
cited above. True biblical interpretation has always been the guiding star of the clear words must illuminate the
less clear, and in this case there are several clear biblical verse that goes against remarriage.
Small Bible knowledge, little education about the topic and wrong guidance has been that many, unfortunately,
have ended up in difficult situations, far away from God's ways and will. But in Jesus there is
forgiveness and reparation for those who repent and confess their sin!
Isaiah 1.18: "Come let us reason together, saith the Lord. Though your sins be as
scarlet, they shall be as white as snow, and though they be red like crimson, they shall be as white
wool. "Jesus said to the woman caught in adultery:" Go and sin no more! "She could therefore
not continue as before, to live in sin (adultery), but had to repent. So also must we
repentance for the forgiveness of God (Apgj.3, 19). We can not live in sin as Christians, it is
big difference between living in sin and fall into sin.
Hebrews 13.4: "Let marriage be honored by all, and the marriage bed be
undefiled before! For God will judge those who commit adultery
and adultery. "
