Biblical Record

Remarriage:

  • Jesus implied (Matt 5:32; 19:9) – only the spouse of an adulterer.


Summary

Summary

  • Divorce for any reason other than adultery, & remarriage causes adultery.

  • Marrying the divorced adulterer causes adultery. 

  • The “innocent party” is free to marry again.

  • Adultery begins in the heart, but it is the overt act Jesus addressed (Matt 5:31-32; Matt 19:9; cf. Deut 24:1; Num 5:11ff; Deut 22:113ff)

  • Divorce is permitted (not commanded) in cases of adultery.


Happy holy marriages

Happy, Holy, Marriages

    • “Do I habitually consider others when I act?”


Facing divorce

Facing Divorce

  • Count the cost to everyone, not just yourself.
