Dr. John MacArthur is—far and away—America’s greatest Bible teacher. In 2015, I had a burning desire to understand what the Bible really meant, however, everywhere I searched, all
I found was grossly undereducated men who called themselves “preachers” or “pastors” who were chiefly interested in:
1. Making money
2. Gaining popularity
3. Spreading a false gospel

It was quite obvious to me they had very little Biblical knowledge.

MacArthur, on the other hand, has a vast knowledge of the Bible and goes to great pains to explain it so articulately. I can honestly say that he changed the direction of my life. I am forever grateful to find such a wonderful teacher. Therefore, I’ve created this YouTube channel in order to propagate his accurate and thorough Biblical teachings.

I implore you to go directly to his website to learn more about the Word of God: Here you will find a wealth of information on virtually any subject in God’s Word. You can search by scripture, Books of the Bible, or keywords.

MacArthur is not focused on making money, unlike many false Christian preachers today. You can download his sermons for FREE! Just click on this link to go directly to his sermons.
I pray that God blesses you with a deeper understanding of the Word of God!


  1. there is also no marriage in the kingdom … question why do people assume ? when a man say but be careful of the answer

  2. This is incorrect the 2 biblical reasons permitting divorce is adultery or death 🙏💯❤️📖

  3. I have always believed that adultery is justified if one partner commits any act that in Old Testament Israel would have resulted in the death of that spouse.

  4. All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. So you cannot divorce your wife . However Christ can divorce her from you if he finds you without sin . Jesus did not divorce Israel on the cross rather he forgave them . Fulfill your covenant . Can you understand this? The children of this age marry and are given in marriage. But those that have been found worthy of that age and the resurrection have no need to marry or reproduce there own kind for they are Children of God and cannot die anymore

  5. So many offer advice on this topic without understanding so be careful about using the comment section to shape doctrine. If you are Christian I trust the Spirit will lead you to understanding on this topic if you just continue prayerfully in a deep study of the OT passages like Deuteronomy, Jeremiah etc. learning the Hebrew and of course the NT passages learning the Greek. Also helps to understand the customs/practices formed by pharisaic types who as usual made a mess of things…

  6. all these Bible scholars who never really closely take a look at the word of God even with cursory review you can find out that Erasmus did add the except for fornication clause

  7. It is interesting how grace can be twisted into law in almost any situation by reformed thinkers. I guess in these cases some things are lawful and others are not. Hmmm.

  8. John MacArthur was spiking very well (but many people doesn’t know what they’re reading in their bibles) and they just judge you and others in this matter. (Don’t forget people that only God is the JUDGE not you)

    Yes if the other person is not faithful to God and falling in sin of adultery or if one of the persons don’t want to came back to you than yes you can let him or her go that’s why it’s a day of Judgement when God will be against anyone who was not serious about their marriage.

  9. The Lord does not give politicians and magistrates authority to put asunder whom God has made one flesh.

  10. For the first time. I think he is wrong on this issue. It sounds like an excuse to please the crowed. Mark and Luke give no exception. But be careful what bible u read.

  11. If anyone of you really want Truth you have to search for it, advice dont go to church,  they have some of the truth,  but half the truth is still a lie 💯📖 facts are that the Torah is part of the new covenant, look up Jeremiah 31:33 in the Hebrew,  book of Hebrews quotes that very scripture,  Messiah himself said heaven and earth would pass before anything perished from the Torah Mathew 5:17-20, Messiah kept the Torah perfectly and said follow Me i have laid before you the perfect example, sadly people want to take away from the Father’s perfect Torah,  dont fall for it, NO ONE has the authority to do so , not even the Son that’s why he said I do nothing of myself, of course we don’t keep the Torah to earn salvation,  it is the Father’s instructions and will for our lives, we can only be justified through the Blood of Messiah Yeshua , but do we continue in sin that grace may abound  GOD FORBID Romans 6:1-2, do we make void the Torah through faith GOD FORBID we ESTABLISH the Torah Romans 3:31, the whole point of the Torah is to point out sin, if you get rid of it we no longer are aware of these sins the Torah points out, may YAH bless you all 🙏💯♥️☝️📖

  12. I believe as pastor/doctor Victor Gill. I don’t agree with J McArthur. You are not allow to remarry. God does not break covenant. If his covenant is with you and your first spouse, and you divorce and remarry, does that mean God forms a new covenant with the 2nd and with the 3rd marriage? The covenant is only broken on the death of a spouse. That is when you can remarry.

  13. he is saying…adultery, but, for some reason will not use that term….and it is not the exception…, here we go, again..another false teacher…

  15. I went through a lot of financial crisis during my divorce, I had to raise my two kids alone, Currently I’m living smart and frugal with my money. Bought my second house already. Saving and investing lifestyle made it possible for me; even till now I earn monthly through passive income. I’m planning on retiring when my kids finish college..

  16. MacArthur is totally wrong. If you divorce your wife because she was unfaithful, never get back with her. If she repents of those sins to Jesus, that’s fine, that’s between her and God, hopefully she won’t do so wickedly in her next marriage. But as for you you need to understand that she broke and destroyed that sacred trust you once had, and no matter how hard you try, you’ll never be able to fully regain that trust. Staying with such a wicked woman is to torture oneself, and it sends her the message that you are a weak, pathetic, pushover that she can cheat on again if she wishes, because if you didn’t kick her to the curb last time, you probably wont do it the next time she cheats. To reiterate, if your wife cheats on you, get a divorce and don’t look back. Ask Jesus to bless you with another wife, a wife that will actually be faithful and loyal to you. MacArthur’s advice of "If she repents then reconcile" is pure nonsense.

  17. I have a question. Im divorced and my wife and i did it not on the ground of sexual immorality. Does that mean according to Matthew 5 vers 32 that i am responsible if my ex wife sleeps with another man? Real question. Have a hard time dealing with this.

  18. I wanted to be married for life & had 3 small children. No Adultery. My husband had a psychotic break and left all of us.

  19. McArthur dodged the centrality of the latter question. What happens when one is divorced and married again? Especially if they are ignorant of their partner’s prior marriage—and marriages between believers?

  20. Some claim that we may divorce for the same reasons God divorced adulterous Israel. I suppose that should go without saying; after all, isn’t it the fundamental principle in Scripture that "If it’s OK for God, it’s OK for us!"

  21. Paul was right. It’s better to remain single if you can. Such a peaceful life 🙂 God ordained marriage though and it’s also good (Even if experience says otherwise.)

  22. This Pastor 🎓🎓is truly lead by Gods Spirit ✝️ and he is a very wise Adviser
    If someone gets into a trap to marry a Narcissist who will remove his masks after marriage then god allows the victim to be set free from this torture…
    Because permanent fornication opens up all doors for Demons in life and fear and oppression to destroy the partner
    This all comes from the Adversary

    This Topic of Narcs – Lovers of themselves- is the huge topic in our times
    I studied a lot about this topic
    Saw many examples
    From a believer sight : this is all about evil spirits against god’s children

  23. What about a spouse who is abused? Mentally, or physically or spiritually? Does God really want this for a person?

  24. How about when the wife is abused, she’s a Christian he isn’t. Can she get a divorce? My daughter says the reason she won’t divorce him is because she is in a covenant with God and she won’t break it. I told her I’m sure God doesn’t want him to kill you. She said God will protect her and if she does die, she will be in heaven so no biggie. He’s put her in the hospital with a concussion at least once, that I know of. So, I’d like to know if she can be freed from that?

  25. JM is in most respects an excellent Bible teacher but here he did not actually answer the question relating to the remarriage of a divorced woman. He went on to explain the evangelical consensus view. The main problem with this view is that the exception for fornication (Greek: porneia), which Matthew alone records, refers to sexual unfaithfulness before the marriage is consummated. Fornication and adultery are not the same. I’m encouraged by the many who have remained faithful and not remarried despite being divorced.

  26. Most of you don’t know this but Jesus put an end to all divorce and remarriage it’s a brand new commandment given to all husbands and wives in 1st Corinthians 7:10 and 11.

    If you divorce and remarriage and Obey what this man is teaching you’ll die and go to hell as an adulterer just as Jesus said…

    And the except for fornication Clause was added by Erasmus in the 1500s Jesus never said that.

    Jesus can’t add or take away from God’s law.

    Here’s proof when the woman was taken in adultery Jesus commanded her to go and sin no more notice she was still married Jesus never gave her husband permission to divorce her

    Here’s more proof for the first 1500 years of the church’s existence they believed in no remarriage

    Only after Erasmus added except for fornication in the Book of Matthew did this false Doctrine get embedded in the church

  27. Is there grounds for divorce when a husband is constantly abusive to his wife and children to the point where the wife and children fear for their lives?

  28. The only reason to divorce is fornication not adultery. If anyone has divorced for any other reason than, the woman committing fornication and one persons not believing in Christ and leaving the marriage then you are in error.

  29. How can you remary if Scripture CLEARLY states in Mark 10:10-12 that it will be adultery. Also keeping in mind that the judgment for adultery is so great according to 1 Corinthians 6:9

  30. The divorce and remarriage for adultery doctrine is based solely on the supposed guilt of the wife in Matthew 5:32 and 19:9. However, the wife, in the above scriptures, is clearly not guilty of fornication because the Jews (that Jesus was speaking to) were still living under the law, and if fornication was discovered, there was a moral obligation to report the offender according to Deuteronomy 22:13-24. The wife, who would have been found guilty of fornication, was subsequently stoned to death, according to the law, which had still governed the Jews up until Christ’s death on the cross. The same for a woman caught in adultery, according to Leviticus 20:10. How could a wife, guilty of fornication, or adultery, under the law of Moses, be given a writing of divorcement and be caused to commit adultery with whosoever marries her, that is divorced? Jesus is clear, in these examples, that the wife is not guilty of fornication, but is still caused to commit adultery if she marries another man now that she is divorced. This is the only way that Matthew 5:31-32, and Matthew 19:9 keep harmony with Romans 7:2-3, and 1 Corinthians 7:39.

    Unlike the synoptic gospels of Mark and Luke, which were written to evangelize the Gentiles, Matthew was written to the Jews, and has of 24 characteristics that identify it as intended for the house of Israel.

    The ancient Jews called the betrothed (engaged) "husband" and "wife" according to Deuteronomy 22:23-24, Matthew 1:18-25, and Luke 2:5-7.

    Deuteronomy 24:1-4 (Moses’s precept of divorce and remarriage) was never for fornication or adultery. Allowing those guilty of fornication and adultery to remain living and become a prospect for remarriage was against the law of Moses in Deuteronomy 22:13-24 and Leviticus 20:10, which commanded that those who were found guilty of fornication and adultery be put away from Israel, and stoned to death.

    The law of Moses was not given to the world, only to the Jews. From the exodus, to Christ’s death on the cross, the law of Moses governed the Jewish people. Christ’s death on the cross caused the Jews to become dead to the law of Moses, so they could be joined to Christ under a New Covenant. This is what Jesus’s fulfillment of the law of Moses, including Deuteronomy 24:1-4 (Moses’s precept of divorce and remarriage), means. Paul gave several warnings to Christian believers against keeping the ordinances of law of Moses as justification, over following Christ and his commands under the New Covenant with Christ. Keeping the ordinances of the law is no longer possible, for Israel, and that is why Christ prophesied that the temple would be destroyed. These scriptures make it clear that if you choose the law over Christ, that you must keep the whole law: Romans 7:4, Galatians 3:1-9, Galatians 3:10-29, Galatians 4:1-7, Galatians 4:21-31, and Galatians 5:1-15.

    Being unequally yoked to unbelievers is not a cause for divorce, once two become one-flesh in a covenant of marriage, according to 1 Corinthians 7:12-14. Many one-flesh covenant marriages between unbelievers are recognized by God in the scriptures, most notably the marriage covenants between Herodias and King Herod’s brother Philip, Potiphar and his wife, Ahab and Jezebel, and Ruth to her deceased husband Mahlon by Boaz when he took her to be his wife.

    Some are teaching that 1 Corinthians 7:15 implies that those who are abandoned, by an unbelieving spouse, are "no longer bound" in a one-flesh covenant of marriage. The reason this is in conflict is due to the way some translations word it, which gives it an entirely different meaning, and context. 1 Corinthians 7:15, says, "But if the unbelieving partner separates, let it be so. In such cases the brother or sister is not enslaved. God has called you to peace." As you can see, the actual scripture says "not enslaved" which means that the husband or wife is not enslaved to sin with the unbelieving spouse, and is free to worship Christ in peace. Subsequent translations have changed the words to imply that they nullify the marriage covenant, which is not at all the case. The issue that this creates is with 1 Corinthians 7:10-11, which says, "10To the married I give this command (not I, but the Lord): A wife must not separate from her husband. 11But if she does, she must remain unmarried or else be reconciled to her husband. And a husband must not divorce his wife." As you can see, those who claim 1 Corinthians 7:15 shows the Apostle Paul giving those who are abandoned permission to remarry, do not understand the command that Christ gives is to an abandoned husband, in 1 Corinthians 7:11, and that he "must not divorce" his wife, and his wife is commanded to "remain unmarried or else be reconciled" to her husband. The theory that 1 Corinthians 7:15 nullifies two as being one-flesh, due to one’s unbelief, puts the Apostle Paul directly at odds with Christ, and himself, by implying that Paul has issued an opposing command to verses 10-14 in verse 15.

    Some also teach that 1 Corinthians 7:27-28 is referring to both divorced men and virgin women, and not exclusively to men and women (virgins) who have never been married. This has been falsely taught for some time in churches as referring to anyone who is not currently in a marriage, which, for them, also includes those who are divorced. This is a very false assumption, and puts these verses in a different context, that is at odds with both the teachings of Christ and the apostle Paul. We see Paul refer to virgins, which signifies the unmarried who have never before been wed, which is the proper context here. We see Paul saying clearly that it is good for virgins, which is also speaking to never before wed men here, "that it is good for a man so to be." He goes on to say, "Art thou bound unto a wife? seek not to be loosed. Art thou loosed from a wife? seek not a wife." Who is he referring to here? Men who, like himself, have never married. The word "bound", in these verses, is a clear reference to betrothal (engagement) and not to a one-flesh covenant of marriage. The ancient Jews were considered bound as husband and wife during the betrothal (espousal/engagement) before becoming one-flesh in a covenant of marriage, through consummation. This is affirmed by the context of the term "bound" seen in Numbers 30:14-16.

    The Jewish couples in ancient Israel, who were betrothed (engaged) were also bound together until death, either by execution for fornication, or by other causes. Then Paul says, "But and if thou marry, thou has not sinned", which is who? The men who had never married in the congregation at Corinth. So he begins with verses 25-26 speaking exclusively to men that have never married. Paul then says, "and if a virgin marry, she hath not sinned", which is speaking directly in regard to virgin women who have never been married, within the congregation, not divorced women. Notice that verse 34 says, "There is difference also between a wife and a virgin. The unmarried woman careth for the things of the Lord, that she may be holy both in body and in spirit: but she that is married careth for the things of the world, how she may please her husband." Paul speaks plainly when he says "there is a difference between a wife and a virgin." Paul goes on to say, "But if any man think that he behaveth himself uncomely toward his virgin, if she pass the flower of her age, and need so require, let him do what he will, he sinneth not: let them marry." This is speaking of a virgin who has become of age to bear children when it says, "let them marry." This is a clear command, to a single man, who has taken a virgin to be his wife. Paul then says, "Nevertheless he that standeth stedfast in his heart, having no necessity, but hath power over his own will, and hath so decreed in his heart that he will keep his virgin, doeth well." This is referring again to the single man who decides it is better not to marry, but to stay betrothed (engaged), under the present distress, by saying that he "hath so decreed in his heart that he will keep his virgin." Paul then says, "So then he that giveth her in marriage doeth well; but he that giveth her not in marriage doeth better", which again means single men, in the congregation, who have betrothed a wife, do well if they marry, and those who choose not to marry their virgin brides do better, under the current climate. For more proper context of the word "bound", let’s look further down in this chapter to verse 39, which says, "39The wife is bound by the law as long as her husband liveth; but if her husband be dead, she is at liberty to be married to whom she will; only in the Lord" (1 Corinthians 7:39). For so long, these scriptures, between verses 25-38, have been twisted and used to enable divorce and remarriage, by wayward churches and teachers, and have caused many to stumble and to be trapped in unscriptural unions.

    The use of the woman at the well, in regard to marriage, falsely implies that Christ was endorsing remarriage after a divorce. This teaching is in defiance of Matthew 22:23-28, which shows a woman who had been widowed seven times, and entered into each subsequent marriage without any scriptural conflicts with God’s law of marriage (one-flesh covenant) seen in Genesis 2:23-24.

    Mark 10:1-12 and Matthew 19:1-12 both record Christ’s teaching that day beyond the Jordan. There is no mention of the words "fornication", "writing of divorcement", or "divorced" in Mark’s Gospel because Mark was not written to the Jews (as Matthew’s Gospel was), but to evangelize the Romans, and likewise Luke to evangelize the Greeks, who had no knowledge of the law of Moses in Deuteronomy 22 or Deuteronomy 24. All of these facts draw a clear understanding that remarriage after a divorce, under the New Covenant with Christ, is a scripturally false and baseless teaching. Please use wisdom when living in any situation against what the scriptures command.

  31. Hmmm, Donald claims to be christian. Seems to be okay with his supporters, he only divorced twice.

  32. My Husband,is not living with me,i stay marrige, he have no otter woman,bad is depresief, i can only pray!

  33. “God says, ‘I hate divorce. God says that.” Really dude? Please don’t pull non-existent quotes out of your pants and claim that your god said anything of the sort. You sir, are a deceitful liar, just like almost every evangelical Christian so-called leader. Your followers are deceived. I don’t believe that there is a hell but you do. That is the hell you are going to. The hell that you know that you have created for yourself. The hell that you suffer through by knowing full well that you stand up in front of a congregation of ignorant followers, spouting what you know is utter nonsense while encouraging them to put money in the collection plate. You sir, are nothing more than a false prophet and the sort of money changer that Jesus is alleged to have thrown out of a temple.
    Hey Christians: Dis-invite this heathen false prophet from your pulpit immediately. He is nothing but a liar and a thief. Just like his mentor, the apostle Paul.

  34. How can this satanic cult believing pastor of sola scriptura a man made tradition invented by a devil possessed man talk about this subject so long he believes once saved always saved no matter even if you do murder and fornication thousand times a day.

  35. In John MacArthur’s church I have seen a couple with 2 kids divorce and keep attending MacArthur’s church. They were staying 30 feet away from each other and the kids would go back and forth from one parent to the other. It was the weirdest sight I had ever seen. It was one of the biggest reason I lost any respect I had for MacArthur’s church and MacArthur himself. MacArthur was aware of the situation and knew this couple as I had often seen the wife going and talking to him individually after the service and macarthur had approved her desire to divorce her deadbeat husband . But another elder in the church had been praising the husband as a “very good spiritual Christian man”
    Grace Community Church us a real shit-show when you are inside the church.
