Hell Bound Due To Divorce

I got divorced and remarried and so did my new wife. We both serve in church on staff and counsel others to try and stay married. We love God and each other but are we now going to hell?

Carla, We do not know when the first divorce or the second marraiges took place. Perhaps both happened prior to this couple coming to know the Lord. In that case, do you honestly believe they should get a legal divorce and return to their first spouses?
Regardlessw of when the divorces and marraiges took place, God is a merciful and loving God and is able and willing to forgive. God forgives and forgets, but from what you are saying christians should not try to do the same?
---Christina on 5/5/11

The bible said repent is to turn around, retreat, go in the opposite direction.

when the bible says Jesus said to Mary sin no more, she sinned no more, she left her state of sin.

If you steal,then you do not take what does not belong to you. Okay you used to take what does not belong to you, now you have changed direction and you do not take what does not belong to you, you no longer steal.

If you are in adultery you get out of the adultery and do not go into adultery anymore. ''Okay you steal continue to steal and say I am forgiven but keep ''stealing''.

So Ginger which is it? Blaspheme I understand is a different ball game. Was that not clear for you?
---Carla on 5/5/11

Divorce is not the unpardonable sin. God's mercy and grace are sufficient
---Christina on 5/5/11

We don't know when this couple divorced.Perhaps it was before they were saved. In any case, God DOES forgive.If their sin is under the grace of God,then I see no problem with them counseling others. They know better then some the heartbreak of divorce. Often those who learn from the error of their ways are awesome at teaching and leading others in the RIGHT way. Many great drug and alcohol counselors are former addicts/alcoholics
---Christina on 5/5/11

Are you saying that people who are remarried cant be forgiven of it?

According to the Bible the only sin that is unforgivable is the sin of unbelief.
Are you saying that they have to divorce to show repentance?
The bible does not say that either. It says that if you get married again you cannot go back to former spouse. but it does not say that it getting married agian is unforgivable.
Suggest that you read deut. 24
Please explain your stance and how you come to your conclusions.
Thanks and God bless!

alcoholics counseling other alcoholics...understandable.

divorcees counseling others to stay married...interesting.

how can i counsel my children not to repeat the many flaws in me that made them?
---aka on 5/4/11

If you know you should not take another man while your husband lives and breathes why do it.

So you make up your mind you are going to remarry, then accept the consequences.

No people want to sin and revoke the Law of marriage to suit their adulterous life.

The bible states it is not possible people hear and agree to ignore this rule as if they cannot read!
---Carla on 5/4/11

Richard, I disagree with you on John 14:21 is speaking about habitual obedience to His commandments. We should never question anyone's salvation just because they sinned. God does not expect any of us to be perfect. Would God suddenly save us, give us the Spirit, seal us for eternity, and suddenly finds out we sin, and so turn around and returns us back to been dead? Removes His own words that there is no condemnation to those who are in Christ, and sends us back to hell? When He says, I will never leave you nor forsake you. Some times we do make judgments because of their answers. But if they are truly saved, their conduct will show in how they answer. Some are very vengeful and its hard to believe they are even saved.
---Mark_V. on 3/28/11

JOHN 14,21 He who keeps my commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves me, And he who loves me will be loved by my father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to him. ( The thing with this is that a true believer will want to stay true to the word of GOD,Not that sin could'nt happen, But if a person has sin in their lives, the question really becomes is that person really saved,)
---RICHARDC on 3/27/11

Carla, what you posted from Scripture is true. The "does" and "don't" are given to us by God for Christian living. Many things we are taught through His Word. What sin is, is explained by God's Word. Yet what you suggest is that if someone has committed this sin, they are condemn to hell. Even if they repented, there is no forgiveness. Which is not Biblical. In their case, no matter how much they repented there is no salvation. Plus, suggesting they lose salvation when Scripture tells us there is no condemnation to those who are in Christ. The view you gave would be a legalistic view of the Law to those in Christ. While God is very much against sin, there is forgiveness to those who repent.
---Mark_V. on 3/25/11

Many may think that this is my opinion it is not.

I have to say what I find written on any matter I quote scripture on or I will say this is my opinion. That is different.

When you are dealing with the word, it is not my words or your words we are dealng with Gods words, that has the power to chastise, to gain knowledge , to live, to love, to hate, ..... to judge with (right)eousness.

You cannot change it we have to live/die by it or rewrite it and live by those consequences.
---Carla on 3/24/11

Carla: I also understand your comments, but it not up to us to decide. While you list the two well-known comments, there are two things I would like to mention: one is right after to comment in Cor: if the wife (o husband) is not a beleiver, the beleiver is not bound (you can check that) if the unbeleiver leaves. The other is listed by you: 'will be called' - not 'is' an adultress.

It is odd, is it not, that only the wife is listed in the sermon on the mount?

I wonder why.....
---Peter on 3/24/11

Hell and divorce are very different. If you don't love someone anymore you shouldn't have to spend the rest of you'r life together!!!
---Lilly_Funk on 3/23/11

Carla: I do understand the Word but we should leave the judgement to God. There are many sins we commit daily, that will not send one to hell. Only God can make that judgement. Being good and doing things right does not send one to heaven, either. David was a murderer and Moses was also. God used these men,mightily. Job was a perfect and upright man and he suffered,tremendously. So my point is: we do not know how God is going to judge certain issues/people. We do the best we can in this life. Try not to deliberately sin and keep moving ahead. If you stay in a bad marriage,beloved, you are in hell already. On earth. I don't know if you understand what I am saying to you.I hope so.

on divorce:
''You and your wife need to take your spouses with you. Go to a different church and start over again''

The word:
Rom 7:3
So then if, while [her] husband liveth, she be married to another man, she shall be called an adulteress: but if her husband be dead, she is free from that law, so that she is no adulteress, though she be married to another man.

1Cr 7:39

The wife is bound by the law as long as her husband liveth, but if her husband be dead, she is at liberty to be married to whom she will, only in the Lord.

Mat 24:11
And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.

The WORD, the WORD, The WORD,


---Carla on 8/7/10

Brian: Your post is confusing. You and wife are divorced. But you counsel others to stay together.But you still love your wife?You and wife still belong to the same church? Does the new spouse(s) belong to same church? If these are the facts. I don't think this will send you to Hell(divorce) You just sound plain confused about a lot of things.You and your wife need to take your spouses with you. Go to a different church and start over again. All of you need counseling,yourselves! Stay out of others lives until you are straight with the Lord. Or you just might be in danger of hellfire.

Carla raises good point asking what type of example you give as remarried divorcees counselling others in marital difficulties.

People who are in that destructive state of wanting to end their marriage look to any example available to justify divorce. For counselling staff within a church to be divorcees who married another gives a very bad example to these people.

Of course we don't know the circumstances of your divorces. Perhaps your previous partners were unbelievers who left you (then you are not bound to them). But reality is the majority of divorces are unjustified being simply from hardness of heart and clearly God has no part in the subsequent marriages of such divorcees.
---Haz27 on 8/5/10


Put it like this: Mat 19:9

If we are reading the same bible, you probably are, whist you may not have been in adultery if you did not divorced you wife for being sexually unfaithful married to a woman who never married this woman is not loosed from her former husband if he is still alive.

the bible states your both committing Adultery!

Now what kind of example are you?

Serial adultery, is a problem in the church today and you need to sort out where both your priorities lay, chose you today whom you will serve, you cannot serve both masters!
---Carla on 8/5/10

Brian. Although divorce and remarriage are wrong things to do they do not send people to hell.
King David committed adultery and murder and he didn't go to hell for that. God chastised him instead so David suffered losses in other aspects of his life from his adultery and murder.

It is unbelief that sends people to hell.
---Haz27 on 8/5/10

Steve says, " If God forgave all sins, then there would be no reason to fear him ". Steve, I think you should go back and read your Bible again. God does forgive all sins, Read Mark 3:25-3:30! It clearly says, ALL SINS WILL BE FORGIVEN UNTO THE SONS OF MEN, except ONE. What is the one sin that has no forgiveness? It isn't divorce! It's Blasphamy of the Holy Spirit, which is speaking and, saying that God is evil, or something of the sort. In that particular situation, Jesus used the Holy Spirit to cast out demons, and they said Jesus was a worker of evil and he was only able to cast out because he was the prince of demons. Jesus said they had no forgiveness. So anyone who says divorce is unforgivable, is a false teacher!

What part of "What Therefore God Has Joined Together Let NO Man Separate" do we not understand. Jesus said "No one shall try to undo the One Flesh relationship which God has united. The question here is, did God tell Moses or did Moses make the exception reguarding hardness of the heart?
---Steve on 5/11/08

If we all thought that God was a forgiving of all sin God, and that all we had to do was repent when we sin, then what will make us be accountable for our actions. We are taught to fear God. If God forgives all sin then there would be no reason to fear him.
---Steve on 5/11/08

There is NO sin that God won't forgive here on long as we repent for it.God says in His Word that a man is to treat the woman as though it were his own body,and that she is to obey him.I'm not giving Divorce thumbs up,but lets say if one partner is getting beat up,do you really think God wants them to stay together?? I think not........but I do know this, in a marriage it's God,Man,Woman and in that order

You just reminded me of Pope Leo V in 903.
118.Leo V (903-903)
It was a period of such great moral decadence and corruption that Leo, weak and indecisive, was not at all a personality suited to his high office. His spiritual assistant, Cardinal Christopher, had him deposed by force and closed him up in a monastery. Christopher governed for one year. (see just men)
I don't think that was biblical either.
---pgfdottie on 4/2/08

Jesus did not establish the vicar of Christ. The RCC did. At one time there were three popes, other times two. Wonder which one was the main one? Maybe neither one. Popes many times came to be popes by their fathers or nephews of someone who was already a pope. The seat was bought many times with money. Some were murderers and some adulterers that had children. I don't think Jesus would wanted those people to be the head of His Church. Just not biblical.
---Mark_V. on 3/28/08

janet, I mean no disrespect. The Pope is no closer to God then I am. Do you remember the Greeks that were preached to by the apostles? Dating back the first New Testament is to the Greeks, and the old testament from the Hebrews. In all actuality the Pope is no more then a Pastor is to a protestant church. No more, no less. Stop putting a man on such a pedestal, you are turning him into an idol to worship. Dangerous path to take.

Jesus established the Pope as His Vicar and The Pope is the visible head of the Church on earth. Peter and his successors have been given authority on earth to bind and loose, Peter was given the keys to the Kingdom and Peter is the rock on which Jesus said he would build His Church. Jesus is the Head of the Body of Christ, but he established the Papacy and the Catholic Church almost 2000 years ago. Because of this the Church could decide decide on the Bible Canon and can teach with authority.

What is important for each of us to remember, that in spite of man's mistakes, sin or no sin, He forgives us.

Sometimes our choices are not wise, and we suffer from our decisions. However, God has a way to not only forgive us, but to give us a new start in life!

With every mistake people make, There is a way to regain our relationship with God and He knows how to steer us in that direction!

(1)God hates divorce (Malachi 2:16). (2) God is merciful and forgiving. Each and every divorce is a result of sin, either on the part of one spouse or both spouses. Does God forgive divorce? Absolutely! Divorce is no less forgivable than any other sin. Forgiveness of all sins is available through faith in Jesus Christ (Matthew 26:28, Ephesians 1:7).

First, sexual sins bring instant judgment, that why sins outside the body is one thing, sexual sins are against yourself and your one-time life partner. If you are with anyone else besides your life partner then you are living in adultery and practicing fornication. God does not recognize any other marriage, you or man, have put together. Unless your life partner dies. Repent or be apart of the great falling away from faith. Following doctrines of men, and not God.

You are not going to hell. A favorite saying I use all the time is, "Show me chapter and verse." (It's not there.) The ONLY thing what will cause a person to go to hell is not knowing Christ as Savoir. Divorce is never pleasing to God and it is a sin, but one that can be forgiven, It will NOT cause a person to go to hell. If you are feeling guilty about your divorce, look for another source other than God. God will convict but once you ask forgivness, He will not make you feel guilty.

The Bible does not specifically address many subjects, but as Catholic Christians we recognize the authority of the teaching Magisterium of Rome to provide interpretation of Biblical texts and guidance in making moral decisions so that when faced with questons such as abortion, divorce, contraception, and other social issues we have other sources to rely on other sources such as papal encyclicals, The Catechism of the Catholic Church and Conference of Catholic Bishops. .

Even if one has no right to make an oath, when he vows his vow it is binding and a shame to him if he breaks it.
This is why Jesus told us not to emphatically swear on anything- while our spirit loves the ideal of words carried out in action, the process belongs to God and flesh stumbles at keeping up.
