Can I Commit Adultery
I believe that some people get married and God did not join them together, and God can bring that right person for you while you're married. Can divorce be granted, so you can go on and live life right with the person God gave you?
Moderator - That would be adultery.

Nancy ... You have made a promise to love and cherish your husband. Do you really think God would tell yuo to break your promise? The thing is to work at your marriage, and pray.

Did you pray and ask God if the person was the one you should marry. if you did and feel it is right, why would it suddenly be wrong after the vows. to become disenchanted afterwards and look elsewhere, while still married, is adultery . It needs to be repented of and never again repeated ever. someone who continually commits adultery will NOT be in God's kingdom for no unclean thing can enter. Jesus told Mary go and sin NO MORE concerning adultery. Not go ahead and keep doing it.

Then you do not believe what God's word says about divorce. It says God hates divorce. God would not give you someone outside of your husband once you have made the commitment for better or worse till death do you part. You are fooling yourself if you think He would go against His Word.

You know when you just cannot do something you just shouldn't do it, I realise that inorder to be effective one has to observe all things and try to practice them, to be like christ and although it may not always be possible, It really is down to who you are and where you are in Christ, and where u need to be, Study to show yourself approved!( works every time)

First of all, how do you know the other person is the one God is giving you? How do you know if the one you have is not the right one He gave you? And yes to the question, You can commit adultery, but you shouldn't. You are already blessed beyound believe having someone next to you, when others have lost their love ones and wish they were there. You don't know how lucky you are. Learn to love the person you have now. You have to try, if you don't, you have given up on him and on God for your own pleasure.

God gave permission for divorce. Jesus tells us why. Ezekiel 20 reveals that God shares what is right, when it is rejected, then He does all He can to work within that--giving them "statutes that were not good, and judgments whereby they should not live" (v 20), because they have despised His statutes and would heed none of His council. God gave a king because they wanted it, gave rules for governing, gave civil laws and penalties--all because they rejected His law of love in their hearts.

"Can I commit adultery?" This question is just the same as "Can I jump from this very high cliff?"

To Bruce5656, I didn't give the writting of divorcement Moses did. Did Jesus not say I came not to change the law? You seem to be very dogmatic on the law and so were the Pharisees which condemed Jesus. Let God be the judge not man.

If a person murders 5 people, recieves a life sentence and becomes a christian, should they then be released from prison?
The issue with remarriage after divorce has to do with the fact that the divorcee has a husband or wife. Divorce is a civil proceding. The "one flesh" union is not broken. Being forgiven for the sin of divorce does not change that any more than being forgiven for murder changes that person's circumstances.
---Bruce5656 on 3/18/06|
No doubt people have chosen many times what God did not want. The issue here is really about how we relate when we have done this. God says, Let not the wife depart from her husband; but and if she depart, let her remain unmarried, or be reconciled to her husband. 1 Corinthians 7:10b & 11a. Now read verse 13 & Romans 7:1-3. Our part is to have a change of heart-repentance. God's part is to change circumstances as He sees is best.

Thomas I believe that after several marriages and divorces if a person is then saved the past is past, all sins forgiven and forgotten, including all the divorces. Nothing will be held against that person and they would be free to marry another Christian. I think that many might disagree on this though.

Aperson married 5 times, divorced 5 times, was saved and became a christian. If that person remarrys do they commit adultry? Seems like when your sins are forgiven, God will remember them no more.
---Thomas on 3/17/06|
NO. That is so selfish on your part. That is disrespectfull, mean, hurtfull, Oh I could go on. Your question, "can divorce be granted, so you can go on and live life right with the person God gave you?" Now, if you wasn't living your life right before, then your not going to live your life even better if the right person did come along. this is very childish, and if you honestly feel this way, then you are the one who needs to grow up.

I have to agree with the Catholic on this one. It is just like the enemy to try to seduce you and make you think that the one you married is not the one God wants you with. No matter the circumstances, you can live above the fall in every area of your life in front of this husband and trust God for the outcome. I'm sorry if that isn't what you wanted to hear.
---Linda on 3/17/06|
Nancy what makes you think God brought to you the second man and not the first man? I hear all this talking about "God brought me the husband..." - WE decide on whom to choose and it's US who are responsible.
To go with the second husband because "God brought him to you" is a gross abuse of God.
It's about time some of us take full responsibility of our decisions and actions.
---A_Catholic on 3/17/06|
Absolutely not! That is adultry. And that is just exactly what "Christian" singer Amy Grant did.
---Lissa on 3/17/06|
God says in Malachi "I hate divorce." Jesus said if anyone marries a divorced person, they commit adultery. Mark Chapter 10.
The deeper issue here is if you knew Jesus as your husband, and God as your father you would not be focusing on being married to someone else. Get to know Jesus as your husband and God as your Father. The "unfathomable riches of His grace," He holds the key to your happiness, seek Him with ALL of your heart and you will find him.

Forrest Gump said that life is like a box of chocolates...you never know what you are going to get. Too many people treat marriage that way. They pick one, take a bite, examines the inside and if it's not what they were hoping for they discard the half-eaten one and try another. Well, God's policy is "one per customer", no sampling.

God will NEVER tell you to do something that is against what He says in His word. Either you are not reading His word, or you are but you think that it doesn't apply to you. IT DOES.
---emg on 3/17/06|
God ALWAYS guides us and Himself by His Written Word.
Why would God condemn adultery and the sin of such and then send a married person someone else to look at and dream about being married to? God doesn't do that. There are deep spiritual problems with anyone who thinks He does.
God places great store in covenants and promises. Married people are in a covenantal agreement and God will not interfere with that. God is not putting those thoughts in your mind.

There are no references in the Bible to justify remarriage after a divorce. The only exception to getting a divorce is if the spouce has committed adultry. Let me add though, that I have seen Christian divorced persons get remarried and have an outwardly appearing happy marriage. But, to me it's chosing God's second best. He has a purpose even if you marry, what you think is the wrong person.

To even think of another person in that way is adultery. Adultery is the same as any other sin in our lords eye. I think you are being tricked by you know who. You must have something wonderful with your choosen mate and God must have a wonderful plan for the both of you. Remove the stumbeling box. Stay away from this person that is distracting you from the person you are married to. Obey God. God isn't tricky.
---Alexandra on 3/16/06|
Moderator is absolutely correct. It would be adultery. Your husband is the right man for you. God isn't going to give you a better husband. Just love the one you have to pieces. Something great is bound to happen.
---john on 3/16/06|
I believe that if you will carefully read Scripture, you will find the answer to be NO. Even if we fail to wait on God's timing, when we make a committment, as in marriage, we are to be faithful to the vows we make. The only exception listed in the Bible for divorce is adultery, period.
