irrespective of people trying to use a equality agenda to answer what God permits and what is not permitted.

Explain Romans 7:2:3

The Letter...involves us being free from sin through the death of Christ. We are free through his death free from adultery( sin) to marry Him the Bride Broom.

The wife is bound until Death. If she marries another she is an adulterer because her (husband) is still Alive.

However, if her husband DIES ONLY then is she free and IS NO LONGER CALLED AN ADULTERESS though she was married again.


1Corinth 7:15 gives people who married and a partner is unsaved the clause to separate,
or divorce.

However, vs 39 Hold the wife to celibacy or reconciliation.


Paraphrased
---Carla on 10/2/14


The analogy as trav and aka rightly said are one of the same thing, as Christ always uses a story to explain to those who cannot take scripture for what it is. marriage is both worded physically and spiritually it is discerned. So if you cannot understand what is written concerning physical Israel/Judah, it is explained in marriage or salvation Christ, Death,sin, Grace freedom and reconciliation .
---Carla on 10/2/14


rita_h,

neither of us said that it is a parable. it was narrative, but the story has great meaning and significance related to other events...the overall picture. nothing with the Lord is wasted.
---aka on 10/1/14


trav, great five course meal indeed. but, there is one dish that tastes a little funny. one setting is in sychar (shechem) and the other appears to be set near the Mount of Olives. aren't each in samaria and judea respectively?
---aka on 10/1/14


Trav and aka, I think that you are very, very mistaken about this. The story we read of Jesus speaking to the woman at the well was not a parable, it is a narrative of something which actually took place. We are not told that Jesus told this story (as a way of explaining something) but are told it as actually being an event in the life of Jesus whilst His disciples went to buy meat.

I believe that your explanation of this is very misleading to others.
---Rita_H on 10/1/14




..... the woman caught in adultery and the woman at the well are the same people?
---aka on 9/11/14

True enough. But, as an Irony here, and in analogy of Israel, they might actually be representative of the same people.....
Israel committed adultery but, so had Judah who would stone her.

The Samaritan resident, woman at the well was "lost Israel", she mentions her "father Jacob" who dug the well.
Five husbands were those who ruled over her, the last Rome, was not her husband either.
Just thought food for the seekers,of.
Joh_4:12 Art thou greater than our father Jacob, which gave us the well, drank thereof himself, his children, and his cattle?
---Trav on 9/30/14


Carla, I think you're confusing the Samaritan woman at the well of John 4 with the adulteress in Jerusalem of John 8.

As you see, these are two separate women in two separate cities at two separate times.

Glory to Jesus Christ!
---Cluny on 9/30/14


Carla, if you are discussing John 8:1-11 please show me where it states that she had many husbands. It simply states that she was caught in adultery. The woman at the well was a different person.

Whatever your answer I leave this subject as it is now.
---Rita_H on 9/30/14


Peter 9/29/14

Paul was taught by Christ who puts marriage back into perspective after Moses ...Moses gave permission to divorce the wife... because of "...the hardness of their hearts..." like those on here stiff necked

Christ acknowledges past [Law] from the beginning...connects it with the present [Law] and puts the percepts of marriage back in place under Law... Romans declares the woman is bound...not lose from it until death or separation but then she must reconcile or remain single

1 Corinth 7

Matthew 19:8

"...from the beginning IT WAS NOT SO..."

plus Moses did a few things incorrect like throwing down breaking the 10 commandments Deut :13:14
---Carla on 9/30/14


---Rita_H 9/9/14
(No 1)The woman at the well did not HAVE many husbands. Jesus said "Thou hast HAD five husbands".

(No 2) There is no suggestion of her being married to more than one at "once"

my answer was concerning polyandry not Bigamy,

PeaceXx

while many suggest that this woman was not actually married this is also not clear but Christ Questions many husbands the word many means more than one.
---Carla on 9/30/14




Carla, please remind me of what it is I have said that is trivial. I cannot find to what it is you refer.
---Rita_H on 9/30/14


Carla on 9/29/14: "so how then can you say the Law of marriage for the woman is anul if the husband commits adultery neither can remarry!"


For your question, the answer might be found (actually the answer there is for the husband, not for the wife, but we might consider that if it is for the husband it might also be for the wife), in Matt 19:9

Now you might say that the clause for adultery is an excuse for the husband but not for the wife - maybe

But I suspect you are only taking it 'letter for letter' and perhaps are not trying to understand what God is really is describing.

I am not sure, but that is my suspicion
---Peter on 9/29/14


Carla,
We are no longer under the LETTER of the law. Again, please read 2 Corinthians.

You are stating the law in the old testament. Christ did away with the letter of the law that you seem to want to hang onto. Again, What sins did Christ NOT take away? And why are you denying the power of Christ? The Bible speaks of people like you. Praying for you Carla. My last post to you by the way.
---g on 9/29/14


how trivial, Rita,

g--- If this has not been debated for how long it beats me how people find it difficult to understand black and white with concepts that are clearly defined and explained in the scriptures.

Romans 7:2 a woman is BOUND by the Law by husband as long as her husband lives !!!! so how then can you say the Law of marriage for the woman is anul if the husband commits adultery neither can remarry!

fact is the word does not give permission nowhere no how and is specific when dealing with marriage, widows, virgins and Married woman/men.

So the confusion is your equality doctrine which you received from the world not bible, you are assuming there is a unisex doctrine.
---Carla on 9/29/14


Hello, Agree with Sis.Rita, and Shira, on the bit about the woman Jesus bid sin no more, he meant she had been intimate with other women husband's
She was not married.Shira4368 point the gospel truth,actualy, if a person had been an adultress, adulterar Once you give Jesus your life(You put sin out of your life ) you are a new creature in Christ Jesus.Your sins are under the Blood n the Lordship of Jesus Christ!

Lawrence:

Revelation 17:4-6 speaks of a harlot. There is no mention of trinity here. YOU are the one reading this between the lines.

The Pope is not the trinity. Most Christian groups are trinitarian. Catholics and evangelical protestants have very different theologies, yet you lump them all into one group, and then condemn them all based on various theologies they don't share.

Research "anthropogenic disasters by death toll". Religious wars (Crusades, Inquisition, etc.) have murdered millions, but atheists (e.g. communists) and fascists (e.g. Nazis) have murdered tens of millions. Which is a bigger threat to Christians?

The woman caught in adultery is a good example of what Christ means when he called her out for having many husbands since she was only ALLOWED one !

Those whom wish to re-write his word do so at their own peril...// Carla

Would this qualify for revision of God's word since scripture never says the woman caught in adultery and the woman at the well are the same people?
---aka on 9/11/14


Lawrence:

As I have repeatedly pointed out, the verses YOU repeatedly point out, Rev. 17:4-6, do not mention trinity AT ALL, yet you keep on insisting on reading it between the lines.

no works salvation, once saved always saved

Many believe that the woman described is the Roman Catholic church - but "no works salvation" and "once saved always saved" are far from what Catholics teach.

You seem to read "trinity" into so many scriptures. You seem more than a little obsessed with it.

the trinity head honcho the pope saying, atheist don't have to believe in God to go to heaven.

Actually, polygamy--properly polygyny or having plural wives--was not for the pleasure of the man but the security of the women involved as he had to provide for all his wives equally, including what is delicately called in legal terms "marital consortium".

The woman at the well did not HAVE many husbands. Jesus said "Thou hast HAD five husbands". There is no suggestion of her being married to more than one at once but she was then living with a man to whom she was not married which was sinful and others shunned her.

The woman taken in adultery is a different event and the men accusing her were behaving as if they were all as pure as the driven snow. Somewhere in that narrative was an adulterous man also because a woman cannot commit adultery on her own. Jesus pointed out that we should get our own life right before becoming involved in someone elses.
---Rita_H on 9/9/14


The woman caught in adultery is a good example of what Christ means when he called her out for having many husbands since she was only ALLOWED one !

Those whom wish to re-write his word do so at their own peril since Christ speaks concerning the man of God whose wife commits fornication/adultery in marriage. The man of God who did no such deed can marry but will not be called an adulterer since his wife will still be alive when he takes another godly wife !

cluny, if it wasn't bout the woman then why was she in scripture?
3 things thats deceiving to me bout trinity in Rev.17 vs 4 5 6.
1. Prov. 14 v 12. The fictitious trinity. Those think believe there is such is why God put in Rev.17 vs 4 5 6.
2. Deceiving Lies of easybelievism, no works salvation, once saved always saved, 2nd working of grace other etc. All manner of sins is ok with god. 1Cor.6 vs 9 n 10.
3. Trin cath priests being called fathers. Mat.23 v 9.

Dear Lawrence,
You keep putting down (Isa. 9:6) to help you, here it is:
"..Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of peace"
Here we are told that the Messiah will be a Father to His people eternally. As David King, He will compassionately care for and discipline them (40:11: 63:16: 64:8). A Son was given, for He is Son not the Father. But He will be a Father to His children eternally.
---Luke on 9/8/14


Good point luke.

So Lawrence if a person does not know better you teach that believing in the Trinity will cause them to be lost.

Is that because we are saved by our knowledge instead of Grace?

So a person who loves GOD and wants to follow Him does not know what you teach they are lost and will be tortured for all eternity in a fiery hell because they did not know that the trinity was according to you false?

In that cases many who died instead of renouncing JESUS in the past and today are going to be in everlasting agony even though they follow and love JESUS.

Carla, let me first say, that no one knows the heart of another person but God. We can assume many things but each one has a relationship with Christ. For someone to say yes, or no, is to assume we know but we don't know the heart of the adulterer. He could have repented, He could not. So many things are depended upon what his relationship with God now. Sometimes if someone hurts us and they are with someone, we would like for them not to be save are go to heaven for what they have done, but in reallity

When He asked her where her accusers were, she could answer that there weren't any because she had seen what He had shown her of redemption. Her heart, open and full of faith, could then hear the words, "Neither do I condemn thee. Go and sin no more." I simply used a story from the Bible to illustrate why pointing out sin using the law never cured anybody. It causes the offense to abound.
---Linda6563 on 5/5/06


Carla, pointing out sin never stopped anyone from sinning. Show them Jesus and His work on the cross and that will work in their lives if they will believe it. It really is that simple. That is what Jesus did with the woman taken in adultery. He showed her redemption, dealt with her accusers who condemned her and, when He was done, there was no one but Himself and that woman standing in the midst.

---jennifer on 4/28/06


Jesus didn't even speak to that woman until He showed her His work in redemption. Before that, she couldn't have heard anything but the voice of her accusers. Once the accusers were dealt with, He could then speak to her and she could hear Him without the fog of condemnation. We empower no one when we tell them to go and sin no more while, at the same time, continuing to judge and condemn them.
---Linda6563 on 4/27/06


When Jesus told the woman to go and sin no more, He empowered her with, "Neither do I condemn thee." We like to rush to the last part of that passage without an understanding of what that woman had just seen of redemption, what happened to her accusers in that redemption (taken out of the way), why none of them were left, the power of being set free from the law (the broken stones) (no condemnation...Romans 8), and then the power of the risen Christ speaking to her.

King David repented .The woman of the well sinned no more,I know that well, I have to explain why I ask,so many people I know are being told by their pastors that the ruling of the church is wrong and that divorcees will be allowed to re-marry all they have to do is come as they are, and gave his blessing for this person although divorced because he committed the offence with still living with his partner yet this particular pastor did not instruct them as to wether this was wrong or right.

No. The only way a person such as this can make it to heaven is if he is convicted of his sin and asks forgiveness. But even if he does that, he won't be with the woman he has been with. Heaven isn't going to be like that.
