Truths of divorce and remarriage

1.      Death ends a marriage covenant. (Gen 2:24; Mal 2:10-14; Matthew 19:4-6; Mark 10:6-9; Romans 7:2,3; 1 Cor 7:39)
2.      Remarriage after divorcing a living spouse is adultery. (Matthew 5:32; 19:9; Mark 10:11,12; Luke 16:18)
3.      Adultery remains a permanent sin until repentance. (Matthew 12:41; Luke 3:8; Luke 5:32)
4.      Denominations are not the word of God. (Mark 7:8)
5.      Your pastor is not God. (Ex 20:1,2)
6.      Repentance is permanently dissolving the adulterous union. (2 Cor 7:10)
7.      God’s grace covers those who repent from the sin of adultery. (Acts 11:18)
8.      God calls remarriages adultery (see 3.) and those who remain in this sin will perish.(Matthew 7:21-23;1 Cor 6:9,10; Heb 13:4)
9.      Deception is evident in those with hard hearts. Divorce is hardheartedness and remarriage is nothing more than sanctified unforgiveness. God warned of the deceptions that are to come. Divorce to remarry is the greatest deception of our time.(1Cor 6:9; Gal 6:7; 2 Tim 3:13)  

God is patient that none should perish, but that they come to repentance. (2 Peter 3:9; 1 Tim 2:4; Rev 2:21)

In Christ’s love,
