Building up believers and the New Testament church

Marriage, Divorce and Remarriage

The lives affected by divorce are real people with real pains. Many have suffered betrayed trusts and bear deep scars. They are not an "argument" or a "doctrine," they are souls--souls that Jesus died for. Like all hard situations, the temptation is to ignore it and hope it will just go away. But as a people of God, we are called to minister Christ to those caught in difficult, dark, painful circumstances. Moreover, as a church in America, we must recognize that these issues are an ever-increasing element of our morally declining society. This series of articles examines the biblical guidelines for marriage, divorce, and remarriage. The author's prayer is that the truth of Jesus will be uplifted, and not his opinion or the agenda of a denomination. "Yea, let God be true, but every man a liar" (Rom. 3:4).
