What does the Bible teach about divorce and remarriage? That’s our topic today on the BEAT.

Hey what’s up everyone my name is Allen Parr and so today we are dealing with a very sensitive subject. Statistics show that over 50% of all couples experience divorce, which means not only are they affected by it but their children are as well. I recognize there are a variety of views on it so my goal is to provide a balanced yet biblical view on the subject.

With that being said, the first thing I want to say is that…

1. Divorce is not the unforgivable sin
a. I would argue that it’s not a sin at all in some situations. We’ve taken this one sin and have shunned and shamed people and caused them to feel worse than they already do about the deep pain associated with a divorce.
b. We need to be about the business of restoring people who are broken and reminding them that if God is big enough to forgive other sins then He is big enough to forgive the sin of divorce.
2. Grounds for Divorce
a. With that being said I would argue that the Bible provides four grounds for divorce and remarriage.
b. Adultery – Mt. 19:9 – Jesus says that if a spouse commits adultery then the other spouse has the option to divorce and remarry although reconciliation is always preferred if the offending spouse is truly repentant.
c. Abandonment – 1 Cor. 7:12-15
d. Death – 1 Cor. 7:39 – Paul says that if a spouse dies then the living spouse is obviously no longer bound and is free to remarry.
e. Divorce as an Unbeliever – 2 Cor. 5:17 – When we become Christians God does not hold us accountable for anything we did before we were saved.
3. The X-Factor
a. With all of that being said I believe there is one x-factor here and that is the heart of God. I am convinced that, although there are consequences to our decisions, GOD ALWAYS RESPONDS TO A HEART OF REPENTANCE WITH GRACE.
b. We see this in the life of David. We see this with how God dealt with Israel who sinned against God repeatedly and yet God called them back to repentance.
4. Finally my advice to someone who has experienced the devastating pain of divorce is
a. Go out of your way to shield your children from the pain of the divorce as much as you can.
b. But more importantly, NEVER WASTE A FAILURE! Take the lessons that you’ve learned [see what part you played, if any, in the breakdown of the marriage] and turn around and help someone else because if you don’t you are allowing the enemy to get the victory on the front end and on the back end by causing you to hide behind your failures and being too ashamed to share your wisdom with someone else.

  1. Jesus never said you can remarry after divorce under any circumstances, aside from the death of a spouse. Yes, you may get divorced for reasons of adultery, abuse and abandonment, but I can’t find anywhere in the Bible that permits you to remarry, except for the death of a spouse. Believe me, I’d love to remarry the right person one day, but I am a divorced woman, and my spouse still lives. Yes, my X was an adulterer, abuser, neglectful, did not provide for me, and he abandoned me, but because he lives, I am not permitted to remarry according to the Bible. I’m not being religious or self sacrificing, I’m going by sound doctrine. Please provide scripture to correct me. God bless.

  2. 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.

  3. Jesus acknowledged that Moses’s precept was for any cause, "except for the cause of fornication". This is affirmed also by Deuteronomy 22:13-21; 23-24. Teaching that adultery is a cause is only an attempt to change what Jesus teaches, which is that adultery is the result of marriage after divorce and not the cause. We know this also because Jesus also teaches that "whosoever shall marry her that is divorced commits adultery." These teachings are very clear and unambiguous.

  4. PREFACE: I say this in humility and not out of condemnation, for Jesus came not to condemn the world but to save the world so please do not feel condemned by this comment, but instead, let God gracefully convict your heart and conscience of sin so that you can find repentance and peace with God knowing that only if you repent you will be saved and escape hell.

    FACT: The ONLY case of divorce and remarriage EVER recorded in the bible was called ADULTERY by John the Baptist

    FACT: Jesus stated on several occasions that ALL DIVORCE and REMARRIAGE = ADULTERY

    FACT: NO ADULTERER will go to heaven

    FACT: If you are in remarriage or are married to someone who was divorced, you are CONSTANTLY living in adultery or fornication.

    People who try to prove the above FACTS wrong have the following arguments:

    I can get a divorce because Mathew 9:19 says EXCEPT FOR FORNICATION.

    I can get a divorce because Apostle Paul says NOT UNDER BONDAGE

    These people IGNORE every other verse in Mark, Luke, John, 1 Corinthians where NO EXCEPTION IS GIVEN

    These people DO NOT KNOW, that Erasmus added EXCEPT FOR FORNICATION in 1500 to Greek translations and that earlier bibles read NOT OVER FORNICATION (because fornication in punishable by death penalty according to Jewish Law given by God). Furthermore, careful understanding of why NOT OVER FORNICATION was ONLY FOUND in the book of MATHEW and not MARK, LUKE, or JOHN, is because the book of MATHEW was circulated among the JEWS, whereas MARK, LUKE, and JOHN were circulated among NON-JEWS who could no exercise capital punishment fornication, to the bible reads that these NON-JEWS could not under any circumstances divorce and remarry. Also in the book of MATHEW, the JEWISH LAYERS already knew the LAW, that the 2 types of divorce FOR FORNICATION (resulting in the Death Penalty) and NOT OVER FORNICATION (resulting in divorce), these Jewish Lawyers asked Jesus could they divorce for NONSEXUAL OFFENCES, because all SEXUAL OFFENCES for JEWS resulted in forgiveness of the parties or death penalty. Jesus said divorce NOT OVER FORNICATION was seen as a CONSTANT STATE of adultery. Erasmus changed the words NOT OVER FORNICATION to EXCEPT FOR FORNICATION which completely changes the meaning

    This snare of “EXCEPT FOR FORNICATION” as a valid reason for DIVORCE and REMARRIAGE falls flat when you actually read what Jesus said about it in Mark, Luke, John, 1 Corinthians.

    My question to the reader:

    Will you ignore Mark, Luke, John, 1 Corinthians, and Romans where it is written that all remarriage is a constant state of adultery?

    Or will you take 1 or 2 scriptures out of context even though they CONTRIDICT the ENTIRE BIBLE
    You must RIGHTLY DIVIDE the Word of Truth which is the Word of God


  5. If a spouse false accuse physical abuse against their spouse because they need a divorce to get out of the marriage.. then the innocent party who got falsely accused try to reconcile with them but the guilty party won’t reconcile or repent of their sin and going for divorce… so the innocent party decided to give divorce to the false accusing guilty party because there is nothing that the innocent party can do…

    Then who commits adultery and can the innocent party remarry and what about the guilty party who false accused against their innocent spouse to get a divorce for selfish purpose ?

  6. My ex husband deserted me and our daughter 26 years ago. He was an binge drinker, smoked weed, was never home, and was possibly cheating on me. We were married in the Catholic Church (I am not Catholic). I did everything in my power to reconcile with him…he did not want any part of it. He married someone else a few years later. A year after that, I remarried a godly man and we’ve been married 18 years and have 3 daughters. So, you are telling me I should divorce him?? If so, that’s the worst advice I’ve ever heard. Tell me, if I were to go through the annulment process with the Catholic Church, would I THEN be “Free” to remarry? Also what is your interpretation of “no longer bound?”(1 Corinth. 7:15). Doesn’t willful desertion set the other person free??

  7. 1 John 1:9
    King James Version
    9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

    John 8
    King James Version
    8 Jesus went unto the mount of Olives.

    2 And early in the morning he came again into the temple, and all the people came unto him; and he sat down, and taught them.

    3 And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst,

    4 They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act.

    5 Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou?

    6 This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not.

    7 So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.

    8 And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground.

    9 And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.

    10 When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee?

    11 She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more

    Romans 3:23
    King James Version
    23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

  8. I like this guys video… he doesn’t use the Bible as a means of fear and control but more so to help… before I was turned away by religious talk…

  9. Matthew 19:9
    And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for FORNICATION (not adultery), and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery.

    Matthew 19:8
    "He says to them, "In view of your hardness of heart, Moses allowed you to divorce your wives; but it was not this way from the beginning."

    Malachi 2:16
    “For I hate divorce,” says the LORD, the God of Israel. “He who divorces his wife covers his garment with violence,” says the LORD of Hosts. So guard yourselves in your spirit and do not break faith.

  10. Interesting how are you insert the word spouse where scripture clearly says man or woman. Having a friend whose husband chose to commit adultery I would love for this scripture to just say spouse so that there would be equality between the sexes. But what you are saying sir is not biblical. Words are important in the word of God commands us not to change them. Where in which if we do we change God’s desire. Does this mean a woman is locked into a contract with an adulterous husband that has divorced her. The way the scripture comes off it seems that way. I don’t have an answer and unfortunately I don’t believe any man has an answer because God did not clarify this other than what his word says. And the word is not spouse.

  11. Committing adultery is not excused just because it was done before a person was saved. A homosexual cannot continue living with his/her partner once saved. Neither can an adulterer continue living with their adulterous partner once they are saved. Also, Jesus’ teaching on divorce and remarriage after adultery applies to the Jewish betrothal period, not modern marriage. Remember, context!

  12. Matthew 19:9 speaks from the perspective of a man. Therefore, if you’re doing a literal interpretation, you would have to concede that in cases of adultery divorce is only acceptable if a WOMAN commits the offense. Call it ridiculous if you want, but the bible does not give a woman explicit consent to remarry in cases of adultery.

  13. What’s the chapter and verse that says divorce is a sin? Also adultery for a man and woman are not the same biblically. That would mean every Patriarch in the Bible was an adulterer. Adultery is based on the status of the woman not the man. So if a man takes another man’s wife then he is in transgression.

  14. 4 grounds not true. 2 grounds: Unfaithfulness and Death. It’s still binding nothing breaks that covenant, but till death do you part and if your unfaithful. That unbeliever clause does not apply to remarriage if it’s still binding. This is a liberal take on christianity. Watch Dr. Pastor David Pawson, who gives a more detailed analysis on the matter. This clown doesn’t know what he preachers. God’s word is absolute not relevant.

  15. Another Youtuber giving their own grounds for divorce without understanding the subject. Adultery is the only grounds for divorce. Jesus never used or implied the word "option". When adultery has occurred, while it is a forgivable sin, the marriage is still ended. As for abandonment as another ground for divorce, Paul never equated "no longer bound" with divorce. Obviously letting the unbeliever leave means that in 99% of the cases the unbeliever will remarry which becomes a legitimate divorce for the Christian. Death is not a ground for divorce; there is no need and the bible addresses this matter as being free to remarry. The fourth one "unbeliever" as a ground for divorce. That is just an opinion given by the video author that is unrelated to the topic of divorce.

  16. He doesn’t mention physical or sexual abuse of any family members as a biblical grounds for divorce and remarriage.

    This teacher is not thorough in his understanding of this doctrine.

  17. genuine question, but why did Paul the apostle say that the Lord commands the wife who is divorced to remain unmarried or to reconcile with the husband?
    1 Corinthians 7:10-12
    To the married I give this command (not I, but the Lord): A wife must not separate from her husband.
    But if she does, SHE MUST REMAIN UNMARRIED or else be reconciled to her husband. And a husband must not divorce his wife.

    I’m not bashing you I’m just actually curious because you didn’t cover this scripture in the video and this is in the Bible so, if you can provide an answer that you feel the Lord is telling you I would love to know because I’m personally confused on why one will say you can remarry someone else but in here it says you can’t. Am I misunderstanding something?

  18. I salute the ones speaking the truth. Remarriage equals adultery yes that is 100 percent. Read kjv version seek God

  19. Pastor, Christians divorce, too. Your hero, Charles Stanley, was divorced by his wife. She was a believer and but she wanted out. Suppose your wife, God forbid, wants out of your marriage. She doesn’t want counseling or reconciliation — she wants to be done with you. To keep the peace, you reluctantly allow it, but you are still the unwilling party here. What are you going to do, Pastor? You appear to be a young man. Are you going to stay celibate for the rest of your life — and burn with desire for decades?

    I believe divorce is a kind of permanent abandonment. But should the victim or the unwilling spouse not be free to remarry because it is not mentioned in 1Cor.7? Well, there are a lot of things that are not mentioned in the Bible that we latter saints consider sinful: internet pornography, for instance and xxx movies. Let’s use our sanctified common sense, Pastor. It’s better to remarry than to burn.

  20. My wifes dad has been divorced twice, and married thrice. Yet tries to give her advice about our marital affairs. Needless to say she doesn’t listen to him anymore as I’ve shown her truth about him. I also got her to stop watching the swaggarts, she’s slowly drconverting, and it’s beautiful to see her open her eyes, to all the lies of religion.

  21. 1:22 – Jesus said if spouse commits adultery the othr can divorce but reconciliation’s preferred.
    1:39 – if Christian’s married 2 non-Christian n non wants 2 divorce let them go.
    2:20 – unhappiness not reason 2 divorce.

  22. I am guilty of re-marrying after my ex-wife divorced me after our baby died 9 years after our first son died. I was a Christian then (although in hindsight weak) who loved the Lord. I soon met my wife of 22 years and we married after only 5 months. She too was divorced after an abusive marriage, although unlike me, she was not a christian. I didn’t go looking for a relationship. It just happened. I sinned against God and have struggled with this fact ever since because I know scripture is God-breathed and true. My first wife and I were in so much pain at the time but this does not excuse me re-marrying. I have repented sincerely about this, just as I have about other sin in my life. I can’t turn the clock back. However, the only way I can physically put right what I did wrong is to divorce my 2nd wife who I love so much. This also would be wrong. God has blessed us and I believe forgiven us. Yes, I know there are stronger, better people than me, the worst of sinners, but God is my judge, not man. I love God so much and it pains me that I could have been so selfish but hopefully people will see me as living proof of God’s grace.

  23. False teachings, there is no ground for Divorce and remarriage except for the death of one’s spouse, Allen you have a lot to learn

  24. Allen, what followed adultery back then? Capital punishment! Yes, state sponsored execution (death by stoning) of the adulterer! Following the execution and death of the spouse who commits adultery, the other non-adulterous spouse was free to remarry. This was the only ground for divorce and remarriage. As long as the both husband and wife are alive there is no ground for divorce whatsoever. Separation is allowed towards reconciliation. If the heart of the spouses are too hard for reconciliation, pray and continue praying for God’s Grace and Help. Marriage is a COVENANT not a contract. God HATES divorce like He hates sin. Yeah, the general complaint is that this is so unfair particularly to the spouse who’s been violated, abused, cheated on etc but guess what – Mark 9 vs 43-48. It is better for you to enter into life crippled, lame and with one eye than having all these parts whole causing you to sin and go into hell. The road to heaven is straight and narrow – there are absolutely no compromises. If one chooses to end the marriage through divorce and remarry, sex in that marriage is adultery, period!

  25. My husband just told me he wants to divorce me today and that he is not happy. He says it has nothing to do with me. This doesn’t make sense, and it’s left me heartbroken, and desperate. I tried to talk him out of it, and change his mind but to no success. Please pray that he would come to God, and that he would realize his faulty reasoning for abandoning me. Please 🙏 I want my husband back 😭 I’m only 22 and too young for this to happen to me.

  26. He never said this woman being married 5 times was a sinner

    Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again:

    14 But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.

    15 The woman saith unto him, Sir, give me this water, that I thirst not, neither come hither to draw.

    16 Jesus saith unto her, Go, call thy husband, and come hither.

    17 The woman answered and said, I have no husband. Jesus said unto her, Thou hast well said, I have no husband:

    18 For thou hast had five husbands; and he whom thou now hast is not thy husband: in that saidst thou truly.

  27. This is why I waited and I get criticized by both Christians and non Christians for still being single at my age. God is the creator of marriage and I have no desire to destroy what He made beautiful and the most meaningful decision a person could make in their life.

  28. This is where I Truly believe many are deceived at. Because adultery isn’t an unforgettable sin. But what makes sin unforgivable is when you don’t REPENT from it. You can’t continue in a Adulterous marriage and say GOD has forgiven you. We are forgiven when we repent.

  29. All of these scriptures are twisted and it’s deceiving many into adultery which in such will not inherited The KIngdom of GOD. If you are remarried and your first spouse is still alive you are in adultery. You must leave and get out of the way of keeping that first covenant from coming back together. You are a harlot in the middle of a covenant GOD has joined together. The only way you can remarry is through death. David was able to marry after adultery because one, he killed the husband and The LORD took his first born son in the place of what he did. The covenant was still broken by death. Study your scriptures many have opinions and not sound teaching on divorce I’ve been studying this VERY HARD through prayer and fasting many years

  30. Thank you for this. There’s alot of restrictive, long teachings yet little depth. Many have a critical and presumptive spirit, hence not reliable. This is short, and I think it is the truth. ❤

  31. Wrong NONE of the scriptures he mentioned states YOU ARE FREE TO REMARRY!! None of them.. please for the love o God stop watering down scriptures and making them fit the lives of people!!! If you’re not going to preach the word just stop preaching it and call yourself a motivational speaker because at this point that’s why you are

  32. My ex husband repented several times before our official divorce my Lord reminded me that I’m not greater than him to not forgive. I never realized the grudge I held for 10 years. We’re just closing up loose ends but my God is doing great things. I don’t know him anymore but I hope it can be reconciled he was my true love since 15. We both never remarried I came close and he never proposed to his on and off gf so we shall see.

  33. The vow is until death. Please stop teaching others it is OK to commit adultery. Adulterers will not inherit the kingdom of heaven, 1st Corinthians 6:9-11.

  34. Question what if he got saved years after we was married, Then all of a sudden on a Sunday he was baptized and said he wants out on Wednesday?

  35. If you marry an abuser PLEASE divorce and remarry. God is not in Heaven judging you. Mistakes happen rather we are a sinner or a Christian. This world is flawed and so are we. Saying there are no or little grounds for divorce is stupid. It really comes down to reason.

  36. ☝️ My pastor and his wife are non denominational Christians. 🙏 And I love their true teaching of the scripture and Jesus Christ.

    I asked them if I were to be in a relationship with a Christian woman who attended a different church than me that taught differently would that be considered being unequally yoked? Or if I was dating a Eastern Orthodox Christian and I was a non orthodox Christian could I be in a relationship with this woman and it be an equally yoked relationship…

    They answered no to both. They said the eastern orthodox Christians have different beliefs than we do. Also, if I was dating a Christian woman who may be attending a different church than myself, and she was taught differently than I was taught then we would be unequally yoked in the relationship and never be on the same page.


    Whether a Christian who has divorced their mate on biblical grounds is free to remarry is a question of scripture. Their spiritual status has not changed in any way in the eyes of the Lord or the church.

    Jesus gives permission for someone to remarry when adultery has taken place. “And I say to you, whoever divorces his wife, except for immorality, and marries another woman commits adultery.”9 Here, the phrase “and marries another” raises the issue of remarriage. Jesus states that divorcing a mate on the grounds of immorality frees the offended mate to remarry without committing adultery.
    Paul upholds the idea of permanency in marriage10, whether it be to a believer or unbeliever, yet gives permission for a believing mate to separate if deserted by an unbeliever. Paul states, “Yet if the unbelieving one leaves, let him leave; the brother or sister is not under bondage (no longer bound) in such cases, but God has called us to peace.”11 According to Paul, because desertion severs the marital bonds an abandoned believer is not commanded to stay in this marriage. An implication of the marriage bonds being severed is that remarriage is possible, but we must acknowledge that remarriage is not specifically addressed by Paul in this passage.
    So, based on the above passages, remarriage following a biblical divorce for adultery seems explicitly permitted by Christ, and remarriage following a biblical divorce for abandonment by a non-believing spouse may be permitted as an implication of the teaching of Paul.

  38. This says that decades of financial infidelity (confronted, but resumes each time) could lead to divorce, but remarriage is not permitted?
    If the spouse pretends to have faith but is found not to be a believer, a divorce followed by remarriage is not permitted?
