Based on the laws of the USA, and since you would not be married based on the USA law, this would be adultery based on the Bible

I think thats just being like my 13 year old CHILD saying to me the other night "you didnt actually say take out the trash, you just asked me if i did it or not?" This was like 30 minutes after i "ASKED" if he had already done it. Word games of a child got him in trouble. He knew he was wrong.

My pastor once told me if you have to ask, it's wrong and you better not do it...
You know you don't belong living with a man you are not married to. Biblically. God calls it fornication and an abomination. Rethink your plan.

Absolutely. Do not play around with this stuff and do not tempt God. You must be married.

Jesus said that if someone divorces and remarries it is adultery. Why? Because the divorce is not recognized - the person isnt' freed of his marriage at all. If this is the case, then when he thinks he's living with his ex-wife, he's ACTUALLY living with his wife (which is NOT a sin).

As you can see we all have slightly differing opinions when it comes to divorce. The fact that you are even wondering if it's a sin could mean this situation doesn't quite sit well with you. This is where one needs to be sensitive to the Holy Spirit and allow Him to be your Counselor, as Jesus told us he would be. Search the scriptures, and wait on the guidance and wisdom from above. To be cont.

I realize my blog sounds rather vague (sp?), but there really is no better wisdom than that from above, and God will give wisdom to those who ask for it. Cling to God. Abide in him, and he will abide in you. It starts with prayer and searching the scriptures for truth. Let God lead your steps. It will be challenging at times, and confusing at first, but so worth the search in the end.

I am getting divorced in 2 months. My new ex-wife and I will still live together. That act is not the sin. The sin is burdening the economy with another forclosure, ruining my credit, and uprooting the kids. Get a clue!

Why? Getting a divorce, but still live with the person you divorced makes very little logic. Is it because you are trying to cheat the goverment out of taxes? If that's the case, that would be a sin, regardless of the question of living together. The Bible is very clear on this matter. Marriage is a legal matter, not spiritual, but if you are trying to cheat, that's spiritual. Plus, it is showing your lack of faith in the Lord to provide.

My question is, Why would you want to divorce this person, if you are still willing to live with them? Perhaps you live in the United States and think you could do this to beat the tax man, if that is the case do you think God is not able to provide your needs?

Assuming they're still "sleeping" together which why else would you ask the question-Yes. Divorce is wrong, and Fornication is wrong. Marriage is a sacred thing in the eyes of God. Which people take all to lightly these days. Like trying clothes.
---emtp on 2/3/08

It might be, but whatever they do might be a sin. They need to deal with a lot more than just if they may live together. I'd say they need to be concerned about how they really are with God, not just be decoyed with if they can live together or not.

I really don't think you'll burn for that, but hey why take a chance.

There is old wisdom, and it really doesn't matter what religion it's from (they all contain some tangible truths or no one would follow them) It says "start where you are."

That saying shows it's perfection when applied to the Christian faith.
Start where you are in righteous right now, do what's right according to God (all men) while it's today.
