Hello, I’ve read your articles I have to say I highly disagree with your thoughts on divorce and remarriage. I’ve been married 5 times, the first time at 18 years old when I was far too young and the most recent marriage at __, seven years ago. It took me a while to find the right man who brought me happiness but I finally did. I still have a close relationship with God and Jesus and feel blessed to have found this man. So what exactly is wrong with me being happy with this man?
[Bible Answer] Greetings in Jesus’ name. Please give your Scriptural reasons why you reject our page on divorce and remarriage. It is based solely on Scripture. What do you base your rejection upon? To be valid it must be Scriptural (2 Tim. 3:16,17).
While it may be that you are happy with number 5, how does God view you and him? That is the issue, not your own happiness. Heart purity is the vital and deciding factor which will divide those who enter God’s holy presence after death and those who don’t (Mt. 5:8) andthat can change after getting saved. For you to place that anywhere less than number one in importance reveals the dangerous spiritual deception you are in. There can be no controversy about the glaring message of Scripture that divorce and remarriage in at least the vast majority of cases in our present day, and maybe even all of them, result in adultery.That sin is great enough to cause a person previously saved and a possessor of eternal life to no longer have a relationship with God. Please ponder carefully 1 Cor. 6:9,10; Eph. 5:5-7 and Rev. 21:8.
You say of yourself, I still have a close relationship with God and Jesus, but that doesn’t mean it really exists! What is your Biblical evidence proving such a relationship in your situation? There is NO once saved always saved. A real Christian can die spiritually through adultery, with just one act, as King David did. It doesn’t take a practice of adultery to make one a Bible-defined adulterer. Again, a single act of adultery does that (Lev. 20:10). Remember Gal. 6:8,9; Mark 9:43-48 and Heb. 3:14. A Christian can lose his relationship with God through sin.
