Nasirah::You say formr Have you renounced your UIslam Faith?If you have then Find a Bible & read Matt19:3-10.Your faith allows several wives But In Christianity it is Just "Two in one Flesh"which means one wife.

1. Marriage is supposed to last! Rom.7:2
2. Christ recognizes only onr ground for divorce. Math.5:32
3. If one leaves the other for a resson other than adultery,he/she must remain single. 1 Cor.7:12.
4. Being married to an unbeliever is not an acceptable reason to divorce.1Cor.7:12-14.
If one of the partners lusts after another (wants to become intimate) he/she committs adulery in the heart.

Okebaram, this blog is over 18 months old. Doubt if the poster is still here.

Nasira, if you are a Christian convert and a former Muslim who is seeking spiritual growth, I say you better find a good church and ask the pastor these questions. Run away from these blogs. Secondly if you are contemplating divorcing your wife to marry this Christian lady, you have already sinned in your heart and need to repent.

Blasphemy against the Holy Spirit is more complex then most Christian's think, people should honor and repect all 3 members of the the God-Head, period.
---Mrs._Morgan on 10/16/06|
Jana - What you say is incorrect. Blasphemy against the Holy Spirit is the only sin that is unpardonable. Every other sin, including sinning against Jesus, is pardonable. Jesus died for sinners, not the righteous.

not sure how divorce is the unpardonable sin, but Jesus says it was not so from the beginning-divorce. matt 19:9 many think save for cause of fornication means it's ok to divorce if spouse fornicates--but it may be referring to deut chs 22 and 23. if your partner your engaged to is not virgin as advertised, you may put her away. i'm not sure it's ok to divorce even for adultery. i cant find where it's ok to remarry cause of adultery either
---r.w. on 10/14/06|
Divorce is not part of God's plan for His creation. Divorce is a sign of separation from God and it hurts Him much. He instituted marriage in Eden...Divorce is an unpardonable sin just as committing adultery and blasheming the Holy Spirit Mark 3:28,29.

1 Corinthians 7:27-28 Art thou bound unto a wife? seek not to be loosed. Art thou loosed from a wife? seek not a wife. But and if thou marry, thou hast not sinned; and if a virgin marry, she hath not sinned. Nevertheless such shall have trouble in the flesh: but I spare you. Under Grace a man or woman may repent and be remarried the sin of divorce is covered by the blood as all sin is.exzucuh

Brother Nasirah, glad to see your question. I would love to give you my opinion on this but I read where you posted that you were a former Muslim. I need some answers or someone to help me more in that subject. I have a son that lives in Arizona and he has been listening to a muslim and has him talking already about their faith and he has now change so much even in the things about God. Can you write me at my address? Could be God has a word for me. Thank you

If you have access to David Pawson material(an english bible teacher) he has an excellent tape on divorce and re-marriage. He has convincing biblically based argument in myo pinion. If people divorce then they should not re-marry. Jesus' own words show divorce in negative light too. As for comitting adultery in you heart I think you are referring to a Man lusting after a woman and God treats that just as seriously as adultery - something to be repented of - but it isn't the physical act of adultery - otherwise many married christian men would have to leave their wives

Divorce is not an important issue. The love of Jesus if practiced and followed correctly, that love will cover all shortcomings and weaknesses. Jesus claims He is the only way to God. The devil just has to twist this statement that that way will be lost. Read what Jesus said about divorce in the Holy Book.

Sir,do you have our'Holy Book' The Bible? Where are you? Do you have a church you attend? As others have told you, what you ask is right, and scriptures were given for you to look up. Just as a safety,you may be VERY wise to get a male pastor or a couple to'mentor'you. There are many men right here who would write to you on questions that you have.But being in a balanced Bible teaching church would be great for you, and have a Pastor to talk to.I am 'barba7434'on the Penpals.If you would like to write I would receive this with gladness,and could suggest a Godly man here for you to talk to.

Once a person becomes a believer, there will be darkness and light living in the same household if the spouse is not also a believer. The Bible says that the spouse can leave and that is Biblical. It would be best if those biblical principles were followed, rather than for a christian to pursue divorce, in your instance. The divorce is under the blood of Jesus and not under law in that instance. If two believers divorce, then they are committing adultery. So, whoever remarries first frees the other one to remarry without committing adultery.

God set the rules for marriage and divorce.
When someone has the proper Scriptural reason for divorce they CAN remarry. If the party does not have proper grounds and gets divorced they cannot.
---Elder on 4/26/05|
Divorce demonstrates our unloving, selfish, and lustful hearts. It is contrary to love. The principles of God's law are love. So you can see how divorce is contrary to God's law. Remaining married but with the same loveless heart or remaining single after a divorce with the same loveless heart is no better. It's not what you do or don't do that matters but your motivation... the condition of your heart. Our hearts are naturally unloving, selfish and lustful. Jesus cleanses us and gives us a new pure loving heart.
