If he is walking right with the Lord you have nothing to worry about. And both of you pray about it.

The people who have opposed to remarriage are just ignorant. They have no empathy. I read where a person said I wont take a chance of burning in hell by doing that. All I can say is you better not sin until you die then. Well you are not Jesus so i guess you are going to hell too from what you are saying.

Jesus prohibited divorce except for adultery, that included lying about ones virginity. The non adulterer could remarry. The adulterer was not free to marry, and anyone marrying one is entering a prohibited marriage. A divorce without cause, was no divorce, and so, another marriage was a type of bigamy. The exception is in 1Corinthians 7:15. If the unbeliever departs, the Christian can remarry because the marriage was not 'in the Lord'. Please read Matthew 5:31-32, 19:3-12, Mark 10:2-12, Luke 16:18. Both Matthew 19:9 and 1Corinthians 7:27-28 allow remarriage.
Deuteronomy 22:17-19, 28-29, 24:1-4, Proverbs 2:17 (forsaketh husband), Isaiah 54:4-8, Jeremiah 3:1, Malachi 2:14-16, 1Corinthians 6:15-16, 7:10-17, 27.

Yes I totally agree with the scripture in terms of stepping away from your old self and embracing a Christlike life. How will you still achieve this if you are sat in bed with another woman's husband or another mans wife. ''Yeah I've stole something I'm forgiven but I guess I can still hold onto the loot after all it's mine''

That don't make sense Give it Back,

''Get out of It''

and then you fulfill that scripture!

I totally disagree with the Quiz on remarriage.

How can a thief return to thieving and say they are forgiven and the past is the past yet they continue to steal?

How can a person marry commit adultery remarry and continue in the same situation Matt say's is not an exception Matt 19:9.

When you become a Christian, old things are passed away. You become a new person. I think it's perfectly fine to marry (I know you'll probably get more nays than yays, but this is how I feel.)

The body of Christ seems to have gotten the divorce issue all wrong. Divorce is NOT a sin, but adultery is a forgiveable sin. God is love. We were made to love and not hate and not condemn. Yes, we can divorce and re-marry. Yes, God will still love us even if we were to be divorced 10x. Remember when the disciple asked Jesus, how often should we forgive. Remember the answer. The only unforgiveable sin is to grieve the Holy Spirit. Divorce does not grieve the Holy Spirit.

That`s no problem if he became a believer after his divorce. All his sins are forgiven through Jesus Christ. Even believers are able to divorce, only two reasons. First, if unbeliever spouse wants that !Cor7:15. Second - an adultery Mat.5:32. But now for you (as for all Christians) the most important thing to know God`s will exactly about His plans for you both. Pray together and ask Him. Do not trust your feellings or mind, but trust only God. Prov.3:5 Do not marry without His answer. God bless you.

I was married/divorced before my husband now. I was young, really didn't know what I was getting myself into. I was living right then, until after my marriage now. The past is the past, if God can change a person and make them new, and forgive them, then why can't we give them a second chance and forgive them as well? And all past is forgotten.

Why do people always think it is a sin to marry a divored person.
We are God's children just like you. God loves us to and created us to be loved.
We are treated like we are diseased or something. People make mistakes in life even you. If you are perfect than no do not marry this man but if you want to be loved inconditionally just as he wantsa to be then get married.
Everyone wants to be loved no matter what is in past.

God forgives us our sins. Maybe your boyfriend was very young and made a mistake. He may be the best thing that has happened in your life.Is he a christian? Does he love you? I would marry him.
---Peggy on 5/26/05




Your question implies two things. One he was not a believer when he married and two he became a believer after he was divorced. Christ called us all to marry only once, but given his lack of belief, it seems to me that he never took his 1st vows seriously. The question you have to ask yourself is whether he is being completely honest. You do not want to be his second divorce

Liza;
It would greatly help if you kmew amd could share the particulars about his divorce that way we could better determine he best answer to give you.

How is it written?Deut24:1-4,mat5:31-32,mat19:3-9,mal2:14-16.ALL these scriptures speaks of uncleanness + adultery as grounds for divorce.Spiritually,adultery can be an unbelieving person or one who loves the things of the world more than God,Carnally minded.1cor7:exlains marriage conceptbetter.
Love is the fullfillment of the law .We are unto a spiritual nature not of the mosaic law(law said stone adulterous woman 2 death,Jesus showed love prevails)If both are called,single + Jesus is the center -YES

Kelly. Matt 5 KJV Says whosoever marries her that is divorced. But is translated wrong it should be "marries her that is put away[apolumeneen]"not "apostasion" given a bill of divorce.
Divorce and putting away are not the same thing, see Jer 3:8
---John on 5/26/05


When you read Matthew 5.KJV. It say who marries her that is divorced commits Adultery. The greek word means put away. If the person is put away but not given a divorce then they are not free to remarry. If they are divorced they are free to remarry. Divorce and puttting away are not divorce. See Jeremiah 3:8.Malachi does not say God hates divorce, but putting away. Divorce and putting away are two different things.

Deuteronomy 24: The Laws concerning Divorce
Mark 10: Marriage & Divorce
It states overall that God intended marriage to bring a Oneness between a husband and wife...if sin is involved a man can leave his wife. But it says commits adultry if they remarry....and should never remarry each other after a divorce.
Matthew 5:31-37 Jesus teaches about Divorce and about a Vow
---kelly on 5/26/05


If you really love the person and you know the cause of his broken marriage, just go a head and marry him. The bottom line is the cause of his divorce. If his wife just left him or asked for a divorce and that was granted by the state law, is he going to sit there and burn himself without a wife? Doesn't God forgive really? That kind God? Please it is not only marriage that takes people to heaven. Do you know what apart from marriage sins, we sin daily. Pray about it.
---Jimmy on 5/26/05


I personally dont see anything wrong with it. Both of my parents have been divorced and both are ministers.
---jon on 5/26/05


Jesus' teachings on divorce are found in Matthew 5:31-32, 19:3-10; Mark 10:2-12, and Luke 16:18; you can make up your mind from these; personally, I wouldn't want to take a chance myself; nothing is worth missing heaven over; pray for guidance in this matter
