Divorce, Remarriage, Christianity.
moving this discussion here so as to end the thread jack going on in another thread, i would like to hear your thoughts on it.
is it ok to get divorced and then get married again? from what i can tell, the bible explicitly states that a woman is who marries again commits adultery. a man... causes the woman to commit adultery?
and any man who marries a divorced woman commits adultery. so my question is...
so, is it a sin to marry a divorced woman? what are your thoughts?
for reference, here are some scriptures on the subject. feel free to add to the list.
But I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, brings adultery upon her. And whoever marries a divorced woman commits adultery.
Now I tell you that whoever divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, and marries another woman, commits adultery.
So He told them, "Whoever divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultery against her.
Everyone who divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultery, and he who marries a divorced woman commits adultery.
1 Corinthians 7:10-11
To the married I give this command (not I, but the Lord): A wife must not separate from her husband.
But if she does, she must remain unmarried or else be reconciled to her husband. And a husband must not divorce his wife.
For instance, a married woman is bound by law to her husband as long as he lives. But if her husband dies, she is released from the law of marriage.
So then, if she has sexual relations with another man while her husband is still alive, she is called an adulteress. But if her husband dies, she is released from that law and is not an adulteress if she marries another man.
"The ecologist is continually having to look at the aspects of nature with which he is unfamiliar and perforce must be an amateur for much of his working time.... professionals may carp at omissions, misconstructions, or even downright errors in these pages. perhaps ultimately they may forgive them for the sake of the overall vision that only the amateur, or the ecologist, blithely sets out to experience."G.
