Divorce And Remarriage In The Christian Church

.
For many years this has been the most popular post that I have ever written, and I guess it is cause there are so many unhappily married persons.
.

Fornication, Adultery, Marital failures, and many other destructive conditions, exist because of sin.  They also do exist because humans have decided that their way is better than God’s way.  They have decided that fulfilling their desires is more important than obeying and glorifying the Creator/Sustainer of the universe.  Nevertheless, all persons must  learn what the Bible says about sin, adultery in order to see it the way God sees it.  Only when we change our views to line up with God’s views can we live the full, blessed life He has waiting for us. Personal Sins of commission are also  often the result of One’s sins of omission, even the sin of presumption.

.

Believe it or not when you sin deliberately and do not admit it, stop the sin even, there is still a price to pay.. even now especially for adultery… divorce… One of the undeniable punishment is that your sin is shouted from the Housetops..   http://postedat.wordpress.com/2013/11/07/sin-is-sequential/

.
NOW ABOUT THE “Good and Bad News” AS TO WHO IS A CHRISTIAN?  or What Is a True Christian?  or  Who is a real Christian? For the valid definition of a true Christian?  Do see also http://witnessed.wordpress.com/2008/11/16/are-you-a-real-christian-or-a-pretender-imposter-still/
.
And really is being someone’s wife and someone’s mother  really worth the  full investment of a life? Does it take preparation of skills,  concentration of energies, and the commitment of both to keep a happy home? Can  she even have a significant input , contribution into her husband and her  children now too? and here too one will reap what one  has sown here as well.. 
.
The most common criticism of Christian churches is that “a bunch of hypocrites go there”.  Of course such a condemnation is born from anger and God rejection.A much more accurate criticism is “a bunch of deceived people go there”.Most church attendees are so entrenched in their practice of ignoring and even worse,flagrantly violating Jesus’ teachings on the sacredness of marriage, with their unbiblical violations that are taught from the pulpits of their churches, that they they do not recognize or understand the apostasy they have dedicated their lives to practice falsely divorce. .yes they falsely  even multiple re-marriages, for the financial gain of the church. And why do most pastors allow divorce.. in reality they are still sex maniacs who want to keep the option of divorce.. Sad. The divorce rate among Christians exceeds that of non-Christians.A life of marriage creates extreme dependency upon a human rather than upon God so that emotional desires are met which results in a strong craving and even a psychological need for another marriage after a divorce occurs.Re- marriages which also are strongly promoted in many churches, create a one-way death ticket to hell:  Mark 10:11-12 (New King James Version)  11 So He said to them, “Whoever divorces his wife and marries another commits adultery against her. 12 And if a woman divorces her husband and marries another, she commits adultery.” Luke 14:25-27 (New King James Version) 25 Now great multitudes went with Him. And He turned and said to them, 26 “If anyone comes to Me and does not hate his father and mother, WIFE and children, brothers and sisters, yes, and his own life also, he cannot be My disciple. 27 And whoever does not bear his cross and come after Me cannot be My disciple. We must love also now still Jesus so much that we will sacrifice our own lives, family  to serve Him and Him alone.God Himself has now promised to meet all of our needs if we serve Him, not our wants, lusts, desires, wishes.   http://kambulow.blogspot.ca/2013/06/god-always-comes-first.html
.
 ONE OF MY OWN FAVORITE EXPRESSION IS THAT “THERE IS  NO SUCH THING AS BEING A LITTLE BIT PREGNANT  http://kambulow.blogspot.ca/2013/06/the-possession.html
.
LETS NOT PRETEND TO BE DUMB AND DENY THAT MANY OF THE DIVORCING SPOUSES EVEN PROFESSING CHRISTIAN ONES AND THEIR LAWYERS, SUPPORTERS THEY DO FIRSTLY LIE EVEN IN WRITING  TO THE COURTS TOO.. THEY DO COMMIT PERJURY TO THE COURTS IN DIVORCE DISPUTES, AND TOO OFTEN WASTE THE COURT’S TIME  AND TAX PAYER’S MONEY CAUSE BASICALY THEY ARE ALL STILL  PROSTITUTES, EVEN THE LAWYERS THEY PROVIDE THEIR SERVICES   FOR THE MONEY,  the main issue is the money..
.
These days it is very likely that you get divorced as likely as you will get cancer or a heart disease, diabetes..
.
Most marriages tend to end up in divorce because of one spouses inability to forgive, laziness, unrealistic expectations, uncontrolled sexual lust amongst many other things.
.
A  marriage has recently become a capstone for the privileged class. The decline of marriage, to the extent that we’re seeing it, is happening almost exclusively among the poor. The lowest-earning men and women (i.e.: the least-educated men and women) have seen the steepest declines in marriage rates,  http://www.theatlantic.com/business/archive/2013/10/how-americas-marriage-crisis-makes-income-inequality-so-much-worse/280056/
why? cause it is always about the money -who will get it, keep it, spend it ..
.
Sadly too  many divorces are ALSO caused even by outside influences.. such as by the input of bad persons too, even the demons such as bad lawyers, bad judges, bad relatives and the  bad pastors too..   http://thefocusonthefamily.wordpress.com/2009/06/11/marriage-breakdown/
.
 Reality-  THE BAD SPOUSES will still carry on their  shortcomings still next IN THEIR LIFE AND INTO THE NEXT MARRIAGES..

NOTE THAT SOME PEOPLE STILL REALLY DO HATE TO HEAR, READ THE TRUTH FOR IT RIGHTFULLY MAKES THEM FEEL ASHAMED, DISGUSTED WITH THEMSELVES, ESPECIALLY THE BAD  PASTORS, COPS, BAD SPOUSES  ..   PART OF THE OSTRICH DENIALS..  http://anyonecare.wordpress.com/2011/10/17/no-abuse-is-acceptable-zero-tolerance/
 
.
While it is true still that many of the  cops, civil and public servants, politicians, divorcees, priests and pastors  included now,  they are still now mostly liars claiming to be REALY now here even to mostly serve the good welfare of the people, or saying that they are caring about their own  family too,  yet they all mostly are control freaks   rather still mainly building up their own castle, their own empire, good welfare, doing their own thing,  and they took the job mostly to get more wealth, but they all will not find a full satisfaction, reward in what they do  rather  they next  will reap the bad they sowed .. http://postedat.wordpress.com/2013/10/01/many-people-have-been-lied-to-about-the-realities-of-life/
.
and THEY  likely will learn I (Proverbs 22:1 KJV)  A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favour rather than silver and gold. (Ecclesiastes 7:1 KJV)  A good name is better than precious ointment; and the Day of death than the day of one’s birth. http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2013/03/08/most-politicians-civil-and-public-servants-think-the-rules-dont-apply-to-them/
.

In reality still THESE STILL MOSTLY PERVESE PERSONS, liars, thieves who are next still expecting personally blessings, rewards, regards, honours like Haman in Esther 7:10  instead they are, will be  reaping the shame, exposures of their own bad doings.. and do see and the creditor has come.. http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2013/02/27/high-profile-executives-involved-in-the-construction-of-the-mcgill-university-superhospital-are-charged/

.

There are much too many even too typical Professing Christians now, even amongst the Catholics, Anglicans, Pentecostal,  Fundamentals, Plymouth Dispensational Brethren, and whether they are open or closed Brethren, that are still deceitful .. and  they are also those same persons who do  still falsely and too often substitute next their own or  men ‘s false teaching for those of  Christ’s, and while the one Bible still does opposes divorce for all Christian persons, even the Plymouth Brethren undeniably, they too do often even encourage  the divorce of any spouse, Christian or not, especially anyone who does not heed to the full brethren doctrines, for solely according to them too falsely the deceived Christian wife does not need to listen to her husband in anything, even from the same husband who was to be the head of the home as admonished by Jesus , especially if he does not jump at their command.. Not only the Brethren, but even bad Fundamental, Pentecostal, bad Baptist pastors also falsely now teach and do this as well all done while they falsely try to maintain a full, crooked control and economic grasp over their religious empires.. The poor wife who is seduced by any of these bad pastors is surely headed for a very severe downfall next ..

THE SINGLE MOST POPULAR QUESTION ON THE INTERNET GIVEN TO A CHRISTIAN PASTOR OR A PRIEST still now is can I get a divorce?
.
The proper question firstly is not rather what are the main causes of divorces even such as laziness, unrealistic expectations, unforgiveness, sexual lusts or lust for more money, materialism.
,

A DIVORCE STILL TENDS NOT TO BE A NEW HAPPY START ALL OVER AGAIN EXPERIENCE IN FACT and with no negative personal consequences such as severe health problems and a big  financial losses now too.

.

Also in a divorce you tend to carry the old baggage and scars still with you on and in .

,

The negative reality also now is that a divorce really does not change anything, it does not turn the clock backwards and merely let you start all over again as foolish, immature politicians, others, ostriches rather, would wrongfully let you to believe.

.

Divorce is also still one of the worst possible way to try to get security and happiness.

.

Falsely even now trying to blame the  spouse for all or most of the marital problems is ludicrous still too. There are still even negative emotional traumas, experiences associated with almost all divorces since you still tend to in real life to reap what you have sown, the personal lies and your acts of thefts included now.

.

You do still have to live with the negative consequences of the divorce and your own major unacceptable personal negative contributions to the divorce and that is also the reasons so many people tend to have more than one divorce next too.

.

Now if one spouses lies to the other spouse, steals from the other spouse, or  is lazy, unrealistic that marriage will end and they  can blame the other spouse all you want for the failed marriage but they  themselves have made a major contribution by their own bad acts, and Christian or non Christian now as well. It is also amazing how so many spouses can in the courts too see the other spouses supposed sins while they are doing the same thing firstly too.

.

Mostly the wrong doings, the bad acts that others, even my own family members  have accused me of doing, was mainly, firstly inspired by their own self conciousness of what they themselves were like and they falsely assumed now next that I  was like them. It is a known fact even that crooks often do  think that everyone else is a crook. The liars, slanderers do also  tend to think everyone else lies.. etc.,
 .
 
Removing the beam from one’s own eye seems to be an impossible task for too many blind still persons..  It seems that too may critics, preachers especially on the internet , falsely still do believe that preaching the Gospel to others, is an acceptable alternative to them  living it now, and they do falsely believe that God overlooks their own sins of the neglect, abuse of others, gossip, slander, cheating, lying, stealing, tax evasions.. Now my son  and daughters and my nieces and nephew all do here  need to stop their lies, slander too as well as other family members. and they do also need to be delivered  now from having a demon led controlling spirit. http://postedat.wordpress.com/ 
.
  
 In a sadly too common, unacceptable divorce scenario, one of the spouse pictures themselves as the innocent party and the other side is painted as a big bad villain.
.
In reality AS WE ALL CAN READILY KNOW MEN AND WOMEN ARE EQUAL SINNERS FOR A START.
.
Secondly  a wife tends not to file for divorce unless she already has hopes of potential future gains, a present cash reserve, the support of her own family for the divorce, and a pre picked potential future sex partner.  Divorce also clearly is still  not a valid teaching, doctrine of  of the Christian church. When you file for divorce it is very likley cause you are a sex maniac or a control freak.. If you are a Control freak you are not only still an unrealistic, immature, immoral person but you may have a serious mental condition … http://postedat.wordpress.com/2008/07/07/control-freaks/  -
.
 
There are still much too many persons with a big bad mouth even  in my own related families, who got so used to wagging  their big bad  tongues, telling their lies about others, that next  they had falsely started to think they all can and will get away with it for ever.. dream on.. and they are next shocked when they are rightfully not only rebuked, but  fully exposed to all as to who they are really .. as slanderers, liars and human rights abusers..  and rightfuly so. Clearly now I too got really tired of being lied to and abused by much too many professional bullies, perverts, anyone for that matter  that I encounter too often in life now still, even in society, churches too  so I next started to openly, personally expose them on the net  and to make them reap real personal negative consequences rightfully here too..
.

God himself now looks after the good wife, and all of her needs still too but  the husband needs to love her.

.

Those whom I love I also do chasten and rebuke. For  if a wife does evil and not rather good do expect her to reap her consequences..

.
I have a great big chuckle when a clearly  dumb spouse like mine counts on getting rich after a divorce.. dream on.. Imagine this too many people falsely do  love the prosperity preachers who promise them wealth but neglect to tell them to repent firstly, continually as well. And that still includes  the persons who does evil to me, lies  to me, slanders me, even if it is my wife, my son Edward or my daughters, or my nieces or nephew, as they also do  evil very likely as well to others… they still do need to repent themselves, for they will not prosper..
.
 
Imagine this even in a so called Christian Church a lazy, no good, rebellious, actually a slut, adulterous, unfaithful  wife OFTEN STILL now files for a divorce, and still demands alimony but she also  often even gets her church support in this matter claiming the Bible says the husband is to be the sole bread winner and too look after his wife.  Well I got GOOD news for you all FOR there is no such verse in the Bible and the same PERVERTED church that says so, let them now  support the wife next.. for the Bible is clear a wife is an equal marriage partner, who now also works even supporting her family .. (Prov 31:10 KJV)  Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies…. 13  She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands.
.

 30 percent of the evangelical Christians in today’s modern, liberalized Churches now falsely file for divorce even because they are not really true, practicing Christians but imposters, pretenders.  I was also recently amazed at the  local PAOC, Pentecostal church that hypocritically permitted divorce, that God hates, but the same Church  enforces Old Testament mandatory tithing.. doing whatever it takes to keep the  religious empire going.. To continue going to this watered down church I next would have to betray many of my valid Christian beliefs, doctrines too.  http://pbulow.tripod.com/tithing.html

.

Of the thousands of post that I  have made on the net over the last decades too this one on marriage  is the most popular too.

 (Gal 5:19 KJV)  Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, 20   Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, 21   Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.  (Col 3:5 KJV)  Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry: 6   For which things’ sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience:
.
  
(Mark 10:29 KJV)  And Jesus answered and said, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my sake, and the gospel’s, 30 But he shall receive an hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions; and in the world to come eternal life.
.
 
Here is a quick Bible study for you folks.. notice above that wife is singular, and Jesus himself does not promise to replace your old wife with a new wife..

.
Generally these days it is the wife who wrongfully files for divorce, and  before that it used to be the men.  
.
 
These days the too often dirty lawyers who make blood money from divorce, are wolves in sheep clothing now picturing themselves and  the spouse to the courts, as good persons, decent, honest, reliable, falsely claiming her now to be a totally good , honest person, and not another too typical  liar too.
.
 
DIVORCE MOSTLY IS CAUSED BY SELFISHNESS, UNREALISTIC EXPECTATIONS, LAZINESS, UNFORGIVENESS OR UNCONTROLLED SEXUAL LUSTS, 
.
 
Hey I expect to be hated for telling the truth here too, most people hate to hear the truth about themselves, for they are in denial, such as the bad wife bashing her husband who still cannot see she firstly likley is doing the things she accuses him of doing in reality 
.
 
Can people now still next  change on their own for the Better, very unlikely without  God’s direct input. Most people have to learn the realy hard way.
.
  
The divorce  lawyers who tend to be too often liars themselves they do like to present the victimzed, innocent female spouse before the Queen’s courts, before the supposedly reputable judge, who in my witness, experiences actual too often is also now a liar, pretender himself, even a person  who does not get off the bench cause he is too lazy to ascertain the truth of the facts being presented to him or her. Wifes and lawyers often perjure themselves succesfully to the courts still while the too often pretending judge pretends to mediate, deal with the matters before him. It always amazed me the so called perfect wife, actually an economic and physical prostitute and her perverse lawyers, can so easily see all of the spouses’ sins still cannot even see their own,, and why was that? the devil still controls what they do and can see..  The Bible also lists this sin of lying as one that can lead us to hell along with some other grievous ones. (Rev 21:7 KJV)  He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. (Rev 21:8 KJV)  But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.  http://anyonecare.wordpress.com/2009/03/06/people-need-to-stop-lying-to-others-themselves/  http://postedat.wordpress.com/2009/12/01/everyones-does-it-the-liars-now-too/  
.
 
The often lying lawyers like to present the wife as a decent, respected, good, moral person who now has provided faithfully  for her husband, even if she did not, and she does not abuse now again  any of them not even her now really bad  husband, and she does not cheat, lie or steal now as well. Ha ha ha  Most of you already do know that is not true.. she does many bad things.. The still mostly  liars . lawyers do like to present her as a good person, whereas more likely in reality  she also is just  another demon. In fact men and women tend to be equal sinners, before God and man. In reality  the same spouse she likely has slandered, lied, committed adultery, even stole from her spouse, and now she will keep on lying, perjuring herself while hoping next to get a good alimony support from her spouse.  The farce goes on. When now the Christians behave like this it is unacceptable..  really bad..
.
 
ACTUALLY WE ALL KNOW THE CHRISTIAN SPOUSE FIRSTLY HAD LIED AT THE WEDDING ALTAR WHEN HE OR SHE HAD LIED AND SAID THEIR  MARRIAGE WAS TILL DEATH.  
.
 
LYING HAS BECOME SUCH A COMMON SIN, FEW PERSONS THESE DAYS DO THINK TWICE ABOUT DOING IT. PROFESSING EVEN CHRISTIAN SPOUSES LIE, LAWYERS LIE, AND JUDGES WRONGFULLY GO ALONG WITH IT ALSO. SO WHERE IS THERE ANY REAL, HONEST JUSTICE IN ALL OF THIS? NONE, NONE OF THIS IS ACCEPTABLE STILL TOO! NONE OF IT. 
 
Many a person  when they see these people divorcing they really tend next not to recognize them and their behavior, for it clearly is different from what they had known before, were used too in fact.  
.
 
All of a sudden clearly new now  openly monsters here have arisen. 
.
 
In reality  the wife is not the mostly   innocent, the sole injured party and the husband is not the sole bad guy, villain too.
.
 
All of these mostly immoral,  lying now people, spouses, laywers, judges tend to first need decent, real, pastoral counseling themselves.
 .
Face IT the single biggest cause of depression basically is your own doings and not just a bad marriage.. But don’t expect any marriage to make you happier over having a personal relationship with God still or the new or old marriage to be a false substitute for having a personal relationship with God. I have been recently counseling a person who desperately wants to be remarried, she has been twice married, but she is not interesting in following after God only after her own desires, lusts.. so no marriage for her will make her happy or replace God’s vacuum in her life still too. God has not promised you now even a right of remarriage.. but he promised you peace, joy and happiness and yes you can have that outside of marriage with Jesus..
 .
Mothers who refuse to let separated fathers see their children should have them taken away, a senior family court judge said yesterday. The children should be handed over to the full time care of the father if the mother persistently defies court orders, Mr Justice Coleridge said.He called for a ‘three strikes and you’re out rule’ by which children would be taken away if mothers ignored three court orders.The judge said that family courts are losing their authority because so many people take no notice of their judgments http://mamaliberty.wordpress.com/2010/11/28/dung/
 .
Don’t by any means get the impression I think that  most of the judges are decent, nice persons, since I have met, encountered too many crooked judges. lawyers and politicians, the basis of most of our judges now too. I think one reasons there are so many bad, useless judges is they refuse to get out of their seats and look at all the facts, not the too often lies presented by the lawyers.
 .
When we’re in a Domestically Abusive relationship we often create temporary “noise.” What you should be doing is calling the cops louldy instead. No abuse is acceptable, not verbal, emotional or phyisical too.. left alone abuses tend to be escalted..
 .
ONE OF THE MOST COMMON, POPULAR TOPICS, SEARCHES ON THE INTERNET is can a Christian next get divorced and remarried, and the simple answer is no! but wait  do not stop reading yet.. if you are married, living to a demon, a control freak, a liar, a lazy good for nothing abusive person then please now do immediately get out of the marriage, do get an immediate separation.. and this not the kind of advice you would expect from a preacher of peace and love, but I am telling you all this for our own good, and you can thank me later.. and maybe next the still good for nothing bum, lousy spouse, he or she will wake up as to what she is really like and they may try to get help to change herself, himself.. but meanwhile don’t feel guilty about the peace you now have in your life.. By the way make sure first you are not the creepy, a good for nothing spouse yourself otherwise by your actions you will be doing your own spouse a great, great service.

More about Control freaks. Fears too. Control freaks do often have a terrible personal, social  life too and do often make all life terrible for those they live with, marry, work with, come in contact withhttp://thefocusonthefamily.wordpress.com/2009/07/21/hated/
 
 .
Christian Lies, Slanders, Divorce And/or  Christian Divorce  Remarriage, (as well as adultery, fornication , Alcoholism, drugs, smoking, gays)  in the Christian Church are ALL still unacceptable.

When And Why Marriage Came About

It was in the Garden of Eden that marriage began between God’s created beings, man and woman. Man as in mankind, didn’t come up with the brilliant idea, “hey, let’s go get married.” No, marriage was God’s idea and it was for a godly reason, which is therefore why it is a law. Marriage is a law because it refers to the command by God Almighty for a man and a woman to be fruitful and multiply. God chose not to create bunches of people at the same time, but He created Adam and Eve, and He opted to make this one couple to …Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth…(Genesis 1:28), and of course this was with His blessing. Man and woman were created for companionship and blessed in marriage union as “one” for procreating godly seeds. And did not he make one? Yet had he the residue of the spirit. And wherefore one? That he might seek a godly seed [children]… (Malachi 2:15). The law of marriage is a covenant or agreement/vows between a man, a woman, and God their creator. What makes this agreement between the man and the woman binding, is the seal placed upon it, and that seal being God Almighty, in which case the third party witness and the only witness to what is in their hearts.

.

Question:  What is meant by God being the seal placed upon the union between a man and a woman? Answer:  God has made an end to two individual lives and has now made the man and woman, through agreement/vows, a one-flesh entity. God no longer sees them as twain (two), but as one.

.

Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, And said, for this cause [marriage] shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave [cling] to his wife: and they twain [two] shall be one flesh? Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder (Matthew 19:4-6; Genesis 2:24). The presence of God Almighty as the Third Party witness in a marriage covenant makes it a lifetime, unconditional commitment between the man and the woman. Because marriage is a lifetime commitment, vows are necessary and must be fulfilled. Marriage Is Vowing And God Is A Witness Wedding vows or promises are most serious. On account of them being made before God, they are as serious as the breath of life itself. Serious because you are promising to God to love and honor your mate until forever and forever regardless of one day awakening to find that the Devil has put in your heart that you two should not be together. The “if and then” clause is characteristic of a vow. If one party will do a particular thing, then the other party will respond to that by doing a particular thing in return. This is what marriage vows are all about – they are conditional or dependent on actions. Some good examples of vows are Jacob (Genesis 28:20-22), Israel (Numbers 21:2-3), Jephthah (Judges 11:30), and I Samuel 1:11 (Hannah). When one makes a vow/promise, he or she binds their soul with a bond (Numbers 30), and is not to break his or her promise. The meaning of a vow still stands, and making a vow is humbling because one has to live up to what has been promised by him or her. To bind yourself with a bond in vowing, in the case of marriage, is to be under obligation to God and the mate you are now “knit together” with to perform all that you promised. (Bond means obligation and bind is to knit together with your mate in marriage.) When thou shalt vow a vow unto the Lord thy God, thou shalt not slack to pay it [you must not breach your promises]: for the Lord thy God will surely require [demand] it of thee; and it would be sin in thee [if you don’t keep your word] (Deuteronomy 23:21). You have vowed to God and your mate to remain until the death of either of you, and if you don’t live up to it or if you are “slack to pay it” as God demands, you are in sin. Saints, when you break your vows/promises by divorcing your mate for other than fornication/sexual sin, you sin. You sin because you chose to be married. God never said, “all must make vows.” God ordained the act of marriage for all to see and as free moral agents, to make the choice to be married or remain single. When you made the choice to be married, you said you were willing to perform the expected behavior required of you in carrying out the marriage vows. God did not make you commit to getting married. It is written that if thou shalt forebear [say no] to vow, it shall be no sin in thee (Deuteronomy 23:22). It is not a sin to be unmarried. The Word of God goes on to say to those who make vows, such as wedding vows, That which is gone out of thy lips [when you verbally committed/vowed] thou shalt keep and perform… (Deuteronomy 23:23). You must carry out your wedding vows or else you are in sin because you have attempted through divorce to undo the miracle of one-flesh entity that God performed at your ceremony. Because the Lord hath been witness between thee and the wife of thy youth…the wife of thy covenant (Malachi 2:14). You so-called Christians, God was a witness between you and your mate – the mate of your covenant – the mate you promised to be with until death separated you. Don’t you respect God’s Word and promises with regard to your marriage vows? God hates covenant-breakers, therefore He hates divorce, and He says so in the Old Testament. Don’t attempt to ignore what is written there because it still holds. It wasn’t nailed to the cross with Jesus as were the carnal ordinances of the Law of Moses. God made you and your mate one and hates it when you break up the union. For the Lord, the God of Israel, saith that he hateth putting away (divorce)… (Malachi 2:16).

.

Troubled Marriage A marriage is troubled because one or both (usually one) in the marriage has allowed Satan to (1) work on his or her mind, and (2) after much thinking, allowed those thoughts to move to the heart and work there for the committing of the sin of divorce. Saints, SIN is the root cause of divorce. It’s not always sexual sin, but it’s sin nonetheless. I don’t care how you look at your reasons for wanting to divorce your mate (other than fornication), SIN is the root cause for divorce. You can dress divorce with all the reasons in the world for it coming to pass, divorce is still wearing the garment of SIN. The proper attire for divorce is something or someone else is more important that keeping marriage vows to God and your mate.

You MUCH TOO MANY leaders in The Church that are initiating divorce from your mate, but encouraging the mate to file for the divorce since it wouldn’t look right for your to do so, fearing it would hurt the ministry, don’t kid yourself. The ministry was hurt when you let the notion to divorce go from your mind to your heart resulting in you acting on that which was in your heart. In fact, the ministry was hurt long before that. Your relationship with The Lord cooled down as your flesh became more, and more demanding, and pride took precedence. The marriage is troubled because the flesh of one mate wants what is most pleasing to his or her fleshly appetite. Yes, fleshly appetite because it sure isn’t “spirit.” Remember, the spirit is always willing to do God’s will, but the flesh isn’t. The flesh is weak and is always resistant to God’s will by fighting the spirit to get the right-of-way. The flesh is the working of Satan against God’s will for when it comes to putting asunder the marriage of a man and a woman – divorce. You who have divorced your mate for reasons other than fornication, you chose the easy way out – the fleshly way – the sinful way. For divorce brings about confusion and God is not the author of that. Therefore you know you have violated God’s will for your life because you didn’t put God and your mate before what “self” wanted. Grounds For Divorce God has said that what He joins together in a one-flesh entity, let no man put asunder or separate them (Matthew 19:6).

.

Marriage before God is indissoluble because something miraculous has taken place there – the man and woman have become as one. It applies if you were married before a minister or before a Justice of the Peace as well. God is still in it because it is He who performs the miracle of one-flesh entity. It is He who is the seal on the relationship. It is He who performs the procreation miracle of children from the union. Marriage is holy! Saints, making marriage vows is very, very serious. That cannot be stressed enough. You just do not break vows made to God and your mate, for God expects you to keep your word. If your word means nothing, then you are a liar and cannot be trusted. (Why would God trust you with a ministry?) As was said before, vows are voluntary. You choose to make vows. However, once you make the marriage vows or any other solemn promise, and especially before God, your keeping those vows is compulsory. That’s why marriage is indissoluble. If a man [mankind] vow a vow unto the Lord, or swear an oath to bind his soul with a bond; he shall not break his word, he shall do according to all that proceedeth out of his mouth (Numbers 30:2). When thou vowest a vow unto God, defer not to pay it; for he hath no pleasure in fools: pay that which thou hast vowed [keep your promises]. Better is it that thou shouldest not vow, than that thou shouldest vow and not pay (Ecclesiastes 5:4-5). Remember the immutability of God. Yes, this is in the Old Testament as well, but it wasn’t nailed to the cross. This still stands. You may have changed, but God is still the same – no change in His Word. You so-called Born Again Christians that have or are contemplating divorcing your mate for reasons such as irreconcilable differences, impotency, abandonment, spousal abuse, life in danger, insanity, drug addiction, alcohol addiction, barrenness, or any and all reasons other than fornication, YOU ARE IN SIN. Grounds other than fornication don’t stand with God. Those other grounds – well – that’s where your faith should kick in. You are to cry out to God for change in both you and your mate. In the spirit realm, you are to fight for your mate’s deliverance from those demon spirits of alcohol and drugs. Those are spirits that have these people bounded. In the spirit, you are to fight for your mate’s deliverance from abuse and insanity.

.

Pray and believe God for deliverance from impotency and barrenness – believe God for fertility and wait on Him while you live a life of holiness and righteousness. It’s a demonic spirit behind everything that is not like God, including a brutal stalking mate. Bind that spirit up in the name of Jesus and remain in prayer for God to deliver that person and turn his or her life around. “The ball is in your court.” No, the work is too hard and you’d rather take the quick and easy way out – DIVORCE. Hello! God is not buying that from you. The quick and easy way out is SIN – “death.”

.

The Biblical reason of fornication or sex outside of marriage being the only justification for divorce is because extramarital affairs weaken or threaten the foundation of family life. When you have sex with someone other than your mate your soul is knitted to that person while you have already been knitted to your mate. Looks like polygamy, doesn’t it? The man for instance, married/knitted with his wife’s soul and now knitted as well with a strange woman. Ugh! Nasty! Not only is disloyalty there, but it’s whoredom and whoredom brings about confusion. The unfaithful mate is confused about who he or she really wants to be knitted to, and the author of confusion is none other than Satan, and out of that confusion comes guilt and unhappiness. The aftereffect of it all is the weakening of the family organization that God established for the replenishing of the earth – family failure. That’s not God’s handiwork. It must be said that even if your mate is a fornicator or adulterer, you should leave room for forgiveness. Look at the number of times God forgave Israel, His wife, for adultery before He sent Israel into Diaspora with partial blindness. By forgiving your mate for that sin, as with God, it does not mean you condone it, but the person is given the opportunity to truly repent – that is, be sorry, not do it again, and start over. Starting over does not mean with a new man or woman in your life, for that is continued adultery.

.

Remember when Jesus met the Samaritan woman at Jacob’s well and He spoke to her about drinking water after which she would never thirst again. She asked Jesus for it, and He replied Go, call thy husband, and come hither. The woman answered and said, I have no husband. Jesus said unto her, Thou hast well said, I have no husband: For thou hast had five husbands; and he whom thou now hast is not thy husband: in that saidst thou truly (Matthew 4:16-18). She was to go and sin no more as Jesus told the woman caught in adultery in John 8:11. If you left your mate and took on another, God forgives you if you are truly repentant, but part of the repentance package is giving up or coming out of that adulterous marriage and living a life of celibacy if you reject healing and restoration with the previous mate. go, and sin no more (John 8:11). This isn’t saying God will make holy your adulterous marriage, but He is saying, “I don’t condemn you, but don’t do this again.” He is saying, “Stop! Come out of this relationship because this is not your mate. This isn’t the one I joined you with.” Remember, if you don’t want your marriage to be restored, you must live a celibate life until Jesus comes or your first mate dies. The idea of celibacy may be hard for some of you, but even Kathryn Kuhlman realized she had to come out of the marriage she was in. The man divorced his wife and children to marry Kathryn. It must be done the way she did it. (Note: I respect her for having done that, ) The adultery madness has to stop somewhere. You are not happy in that state with the new mate. When you deal treacherously (unfaithfully) with your original mate, you are not happy. If you say you are happy, you’re telling a lie, for God will not allow you to be happy after you have broken your marriage vows. Matthew 19:3-12 The Pharisees also came unto him, tempting him, and saying unto him, Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife for every cause? And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? Wherefore they are no more twain [two], but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder (Matthew 19:3-6). A person must not break in two the bond of oneness between self and mate because God has performed a miracle that cannot be reversed for reasons other than fornication. When God performs the miracle, it is not to be meddled with by mankind. That’s why He says, “let no man put asunder.” So, when one divorces his or her mate on grounds other than fornication, that person is attempting to undo a miracle performed by God Almighty. Who are you, you miserable character? They say unto him, Why did Moses then command to give a writing of divorcement, and to put her away? He saith unto them, Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not so (Matthew 19:7-8; Mark 10:4-9).

.

Back in Genesis when God instituted marriage, He never intended for divorce to take place. In Moses law, divorce was permitted, but Moses’ law did not prevail over God’s original intent for marriage to be forever. Remember, Moses’ law was placed on the outside of the Ark which meant it could be changed, and did indeed have changes made to it. God’s Law was placed on the inside of the Ark and could not be changed. No, “Thou shalt not commit adultery” was not eradicated or changed in any way. (For a better understanding of the law, go to Are You Really Not Under The Law?) In the beginning God married one man to one woman and that was that. Now you are probably thinking that because God didn’t strike dead the men of old for their quick and easy divorces and the polygamous households that God simply accepted those practices. You are also probably thinking that if I divorce my mate and remarry, God will forgive me and I can go on in this new marriage with this new person. Well, that just isn’t so, especially since Jesus came and showed us all that we can, and must live, holy and obedient lives before The Lord God Almighty. God, in this dispensation, would not even wink at Jacob having his many wives and concubines let alone you. Those days are long gone. In this dispensation even, God would not wink at King David’s affair and murder to cover up his sin of fornication. God hasn’t winked His eye at sin since Jesus Christ came to tell the truth to all people, and God isn’t winking his eye at your sin of divorcing and remarrying as Born Again Christians in The Church of Jesus Christ. And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication [sex with one other than your mate], and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery. His disciples say unto him, If the case of the man be so with his wife, it is not good to marry. But he said unto them, All men cannot receive this saying, save they to whom it is given. For there are some eunuchs, which were so born from their mother’s womb [underdeveloped]: and there are some eunuchs, which were made eunuchs of men [castrated]: and there be eunuchs, which have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven’s sake [chosen to abstain from sex]. He that is able to receive it, let him receive it (Matthew 19:9-12 and Luke 16:18). I rather think eunuch here is in reference to sex organs, and this is why: The word eunuch is believed to have come from the Assyrian language meaning one who could be trusted, but the Hebrew word for eunuch (caric) means to castrate. Our Lord had to have meant eunuch from the position of sex organs and not that of one employed because he could be trusted. How could one be born as “one who could be trusted”? Notwithstanding, one could be born without fully developed genitalia.

.

Understand that (1) if you divorce your wife or husband, it is only acceptable before God on the grounds of fornication. (2) Divorce is not considered adultery just because you divorce your mate. Divorce is adultery when (a) you who divorced your mate go and marry someone else; and/or (b) you who divorced your mate does not marry, but the mate you divorced remarries whereby that remarried mate and their new spouse are committing adultery and it’s all because of you who initiated the divorce in the first place. Adultery is singled out in the 7th Commandment which is on the fleshly table of your heart – Thou shalt not commit adultery (Exodus 20:14). This is serious. Saints, when you divorce a mate for reasons other than fornication (1) you must remain single, which means sex is over with for you because there is no sex outside of marriage – that’s sin; or (2) go back to your mate that you divorced. Marriage is serious business. But, the Word of The Lord to you (both male and female) who divorce on grounds other than fornication, you must become eunuchoid or one abstaining from sex and marriage, unless the other mate dies. It is not physical castration, but it is sexual abstinence. The Word of The Lord to you is, make yourself a eunuch by abstaining from sex for the Kingdom of Heaven’s sake, and for the sake of your salvation. As a eunuch you will better serve in the Kingdom of Heaven because you will not have to be concerned about pleasing your mate. Personally, I love being a eunuch and I have been one since August 1983 (currently 2000). August 1983 was when the man whom I thought I was going to be with “until death we parted” walked out on three children and I – never to return. At that time, I wasn’t “Born Again” but yet I knew that though still married to the man, I could not date, let alone sleep with a man, because I would have been a fornicator. So, my prayer to God, with my Catholic mind, was, “Lord, please don’t let me commit adultery” and He kept me from any thought of doing such even until this day. God began changing my life and brought me through every step of the way. Even though I prayed for my marriage to be restored, I learned that God was never ever going to override that man’s will and force him back home, but He instead blessed me to fall madly in love with Him and the work He called me to do, thus keeping my mind and heart on the kingdom. To this day I do not think about the ex-husband nor do I think about being married to anyone else. I don’t even reminisce about so-called “good old days” and I have God to thank for that. I love being a eunuch – abstaining from sex, and it’s easy when you have a real relationship with The Lord. The other things just don’t matter. What God has done for me, He wants to do for all of you who didn’t keep the marriage covenant and are not in another marriage as an adulterer. The Lord said, All men [mankind] cannot receive this saying [being a eunuch], save they to whom it is given (Matthew 19:11). The word given, meaning “presented” to you as an option when you break the marriage vows by divorcing your mate for reasons other than fornication. It’s been given to you but do you receive it?

.

What It Means To break Marriage Vows. Therefore take heed to your spirit, and let none deal treacherously (unfaithful) against the wife of his youth. For the Lord, the God of Israel, saith that he hateth putting away (divorce): for one covereth violence (maltreatment; wrong) with his garment (Hebrew word “bagad” meaning deceitful or unfaithful), saith the Lord of hosts: therefore take heed to your spirit, that ye deal not treacherously (Malachi 2:15-16). “You covereth violence with your garment” means you have wronged your mate by being unfaithful in keeping your marriage vows. To break your marriage vows is being unfaithful to God and your mate. You betrayed their trust in your words and your actions. You are a “liar” and you can’t be trusted. Not only did you lie to God Almighty, but also to your mate. Because you lied, you are not happy and will not be happy until you have personally made amends with God and your mate. The Word of God says, …he that speaketh lies shall not escape (Proverb 19:5). You will not have peace in your soul for breaking your promises to The Lord and your mate. It will not be life as usual until you come face-to-face with both the direct and indirect painful results you are responsible for. 1.  You lied about reverencing God’s presence and His seal at the marriage ceremony. 2. You lied about not violating your solemn vows before God because you didn’t trust God to keep His part of the agreement – keeping the marriage together. All you cared about was “self” and how “self” felt, so you therefore didn’t believe God to bless the marriage, grant you fulfillment in it, and bless your home with peace. YOU THOUGHT THE GRASS WAS GREENER ON THE OTHER SIDE. 3.  You lied about loving your mate, comforting, and honoring your mate in sickness and in health. 4.  You lied to God about forsaking all others of the opposite sex and keeping to the mate that He was a witness to your union within one flesh for as long as you live. You lied! You lied to God. You thought the grass was greener on the other side. You lied! You only cared about how you felt, and not God nor anybody else. 5. You lied to God and your mate when you said you wanted your mate to be wedded to you – to have and to hold from that day forward for better for worse, for richer for poor, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish “till death do you part” according to God’s holy ordinance. You lied! You lied to God. You thought the grass was greener on the other side, but let me tell you, it has to be mowed over there as well. When one makes a vow unto God as in marriage vows, and he or she keeps their part of the promises, God will make sure that the couple stays together. You have to love God more than anything to want to keep your promises to Him and your mate, otherwise you will divorce. You will sin and risk going to hell. Yes, going to hell because you broke the 7th Commandment of God’s High Holy Standard for mankind by breaking your marriage vows.

The Sorrow In Those Second And Subsequent Adulterous Marriages The blessing of the Lord, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it (Proverb 10:22). Sorrow is grief, anguish, pain, remorse, misery, sadness, difficulty, distress, and some. I don’t care how much and how hard you try to make these adulterous marriages work by believing continually that God has forgiven you and has blessed the marriage, sorrow is added to it. I don’t care how determined you are to stick with this mate and the children you possibly have from the marriage, sorrow is added to it. There is much sorrow in these adulterous marriages because you sinned by breaking your marriage vows before The Lord and your mate. You disobeyed God’s commandment to not commit adultery when you became the power to put asunder your mate; you became the power that unraveled the miracle of one-flesh entity that God performed between you and your mate. You made yourself “the power” in God’s place. That’s called pride. It was pride that got Lucifer in trouble and it’s that same pride that has you in trouble until you rectify this whole mess. There is much sorrow in these adulterous marriages but you think it will gradually dissipate. No, you’re dead wrong. God has not, cannot, and will not bless these relationships as long as your divorced mate is alive. These unsanctioned marriages will never be placid, and the more you attempt to draw closer to God for a settled peace, you will not be able to until you come out of the relationship. It is when your desires line up with God’s will that you will experience peace. Worse than that, the longer you are not in one accord with God’s will, you’re just a “faking and shaking” Christian who is on the way to hell. No, it’s not “once saved-always saved.” It’s do it God’s way or burn later. You must make the choice. The Hebrews made the choice when leaving Babylon – they made the choice to give up those mates and children because it was God’s will (Ezra 10), and you have to make the choice.

The  19th-century American Cyrus Scofield  wrote into his Bible notes about the  Israel-past, present, and future. His Scofield Bible is today is a popular  reference Bible amngst the dispensationalists. Plymouth Brethren, Baptists. .   The Scofield teaching is concerned with a literal Jewish kingdom to last for a millennium.    The Bible does not teach it, and the disciples who had been taught it, rejected it after Pentecost.  Jesus warned about it in Matthew 16:6-12. We must ask ourselves if Jesus ever offered or announced himself as an earthly King or claimed David’s throne?  Had he ever in any way suggested he was going to set up an earthly kingdom?  He said to Pilate, “My kingdom is not of this world, if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews, but now is my kingdom not from hence (John 18:36).    The most reasonable interpretation of the work of Scofield is that it is neither honest nor valid  for it is properly outside the line of valid Christianity. The Scofield Reference Bible did, and is doing, a great disservice to the Kingdom of God. He was a mere Hireling.. Paid to do this..  And as for this second  biggest original proponent of the false rapture, eternal security, zionism…  C.I. Scofield  he was a divorcee, adulterer,  liar, cheat, thief, self-promoter, philanderer, fraud ,  fantasist was also into the Occult as well as pornography and was a drunk. who  concealed his personal sins from view  He died of liver failure due to has alchohol problem and opium drug use.  He was also indicted on tax evasion.  by their own fruits you can tell what they really are said Jesus.. http://www.heart-talks.com/truth30.htmlSee More

Kathryn Kuhlman was in an adulterous marriage and the guilt of it was heavy upon her. While already an evangelist, she met another evangelist who had a wife and two sons. Apparently they had something going on and he divorced his wife to marry Kathryn. He lied and said that his wife abandoned him by going back to Austin for the children to attend school. Like it was said before, God knows the whole truth whereas ordinary people don’t always know the whole truth. The people in Denver where Kathryn was preaching begged her not to marry the man because of what he had done, and she married him anyway. In those days (1930s and 40s) the people would not sit under your ministry if you had committed adultery by divorcing your mate or marrying someone who was divorced, and they were absolutely right. As a result, word got around and when she and the hubby went to the various churches, they weren’t welcomed so their ministry was going down. Kathryn tried preaching without the husband, but word still traveled and she wasn’t welcomed. Kathryn knew, from her study of the Word of God and her experience with Him as a loving Father, that God was able to take even an impossible marriage situation, one that was born in sin and rebellion [excluding adultery/divorce], and turn it into something pure and holy – without dissolving the relationship…She had seen others do exactly what she and Burroughs [husband, Burroughs Waltrip] had done, and watched as God heard their cry of confession and their plea for forgiveness, and had granted them new hearts along with His allowance for them to remain together. (Daughter of Destiny. Jamie Buckingham. Logos International, Plainfield, NJ p 90, 1976.) This was precisely what Kathryn and Burroughs were believing God for, so they kept trying to make it work for six years, but the sorrow mounted. Finally she repented – as to completely turn around, and left the marriage. It was difficult for her as it was for the Hebrews in Ezra 10, and as it will be difficult for you. But, if you’re going to call yourself a child of God, a Saint, you’ve got to do what you’ve got to do and God will bring you through just like He wanted to bring you through a successful marriage before you divorced your mate or committed fornication and became divorced. In the book, “Daughter of Destiny,”

.

Burroughs Waltrip was referred to as “a man of God” but I beg to differ with you. A man of God is one who walks with God. Walking with God is walking upright before Him in righteousness and holiness, not in adultery – not as a liar. (Bishop Clarence McClendon also refers to himself as a man of God, but yet an adulterer.) These six things doth the Lord hate; yea, seven are an abomination unto him…a lying tongue (Proverb 6:16-17). When you commit adultery by divorcing your mate, you brake your word to God and your mate thus making you a liar. You’re slowly but surely destroying yourself. When you commit adultery through divorce you are destroying your soul (Proverb 6:32), and as long as you stay in those adulterous relationships you are steadily destroying your soul because of the continuous sin. That sin doesn’t go away until you get out of it. It does not go away as long as you are in a soul-tie situation.

Peep Into Who You’ve Been Supporting John Jacobs: His so-called ministry was hurt from its inception when he incorporated martial arts into Christianity. He was headed downward beginning with that. John divorced his wife of 16 years, Ruthanne due to irreconcilable differences. She, however, did not want the divorce. Let’s see now, where is that in The Bible? I don’t see it. (That was very familiar. The same grounds charged by the man I was married to.) What does that mean? It means there is a conflict in what the couple believes in or stand for and they just cannot come into one accord, therefore are not capable of being reconciled – inharmonious. Ruthanne was not guilty of fornication (neither was I), but according to John, the irreconcilable differences went back to the beginning of the marriage. Where was Jesus in the individual lives for 16 years? Without a doubt, John obviously did not have a real or genuine relationship with The Lord that he broke the marriage vows that God miraculously sealed. This is what John had to say: There was nothing about this divorce that had to do with a sin problem. Divorce was my last choice. (Charisma News Service, August 25, 2000) John, my dear man, divorce may have been your last choice, but it was that choice that made your action SIN. The Jacobs had adopted a little boy who is now three years old. If the real reason for the divorce was due to impotency or barrenness, that was still no grounds for divorce. Abraham didn’t leave Sarah and God blessed that marriage. The article went on to say that Jacobs had ‘been wounded by divorce, but…returned to his calling.’ Who called him? It sure wasn’t God.

.

Bishop Clarence McClendon: The Bishop – a Born Again Christian and a minister of the Gospel, in this year 2000, divorced his wife and four children of 16 years. He said, the only reason [it/marriage] lasted as long as it did was because we both loved God (Charisma News Service, Vol. 2, No. 89, July 5,2000). Church, Clarence McClendon shot himself in the foot with that statement – “they both loved God.” Isn’t that what a married couple is suppose to do? If he and his wife both loved God, they would have loved each other and would still be together. Since they are not together, one of them, and it was Clarence McClendon, didn’t love God like he thought he did. He loved “self” above God. He loved what pleased him and made him feel good above God. You see Saints, if Clarence McClendon had loved God, he would still be keeping his marriage vows to Tammera and God, The Seal – the Third Party in the agreement, would have kept them together as His part of the agreement. Bear in mind, God would never override Clarence McClendon’s will to divorce his wife for reasons other than fornication. His so-called ministry was hurt when he began to exhibit himself as “Mister-I-Have-Arrived,” and taking up a second collection during church services just for him. By the way, it was this same fellow who is so special in The Kingdom that while he was yet married to Tammera, he was silly enough to tell her that God had shown him who he was suppose to marry (Charisma News Service, Vol. 2, No. 133,

.

“Ex-Wife of L.A. Pastor Clarence McClendon Disputes Divorce Account.” September 7, 2000). Clarence McClendon, you were duped by the working of Satan in your flesh. If you had had a real relationship with God, you would have immediately allowed His Word to rise up in you telling you that He hates divorce, adultery, sin, and pride in a person. (Note: After all of that, those churchgoers are still sitting under that adulterous man! God forbid!) Oh, and by the way, he married the woman Priscilla Delgado seven days after his divorce was finalized. Tell me now if McClendon was not already in an adulterous relationship with Priscilla Delgado while married to Tammera. (The Charisma article noted McClendon was accused of adultery and also of having fathered a child by a woman other than his wife.) This ministry of the Bishop’s was in a lot of trouble before he convinced his wife to file so that it wouldn’t look bad for him and the ministry. This Clarence McClendon is also a liar. He said that Tammy just made a decision about what she wanted to do with the rest of her life. No, sir. According to the Charisma report that quoted Tammy, you, Clarence McClendon, made the decision for her. She did not want the divorce even though he had been wanting to leave her for five years. Bishop McClendon said the following about the rumors of his fidelity: It is the work of the enemy to silence the prophetic voice…I’m a holy man of God. I’ve lived my life by the Word of God (Charisma Magazine, August 2000). A holy man of God living by God’s Word! Please! To cast your eyes upon this man you see the puffed-up arrogant specimen of a male whose mannerisms are those of one who thinks he’s “the fairest of them all” – “STUCK ON ‘SELF.’” The so-called holy man of God said, I have a calling to preach, not to be married. Imagine that? That being the case, why did he immediately after the divorce get married to Priscilla? He further stated, My calling is between my heavenly Father and myself. It doesn’t affect my ministry. Dear man, you’re a liar. You don’t have a heavenly Father that you reverence. If you had, you wouldn’t be an adulterer in an adulterous, unsanctioned-by-God marriage. Yes, you’re absolutely correct – your divorce and remarriage doesn’t affect your ministry because that preaching you’re doing in that building is not The True Church of Jesus Christ. So, no, you’re not affected.

Richard Roberts: His so-called ministry was hurt when he teamed up with his dad, Oral, and put his dad before his wife Patty. Yes, his one-flesh entity was with his dad and not his first wife, Patti. Richard’s so-called ministry was hurt when he supported his dad’s worldly-wise fundraising schemes to build up the Oral Roberts University and that medical center, which by the way, flopped. It flopped because God wasn’t in that. Seed-faith offering was and still is one of their biggest fundraising schemes, which Patti spoke against – and she was absolutely right. Giving out of your need is not the same as giving out of your love and obedience to God. Giving out of your need is turning God into a “Sugar Daddy” that will drop anything you want on you anytime you want, and people don’t manipulate God. Seed-faith offering is manipulative and that is not Scriptural. Oral said to Patti, Patti, why don’t the two of you just get a divorce? I’ll just tell my partners you couldn’t make it, and we’ll let the chips fall where they may… (Ashes to God. Patti Roberts. Word Books Publisher, Waco, TX p 129, 1983.) Where was God in this “godly man Oral Roberts”? Sure enough Oral, wife Evelyn, and son Richard went on a fishing trip and upon return the decision had been made for Richard and Patti to divorce. Of course Patti didn’t want this and probably neither did Richard, but because his dad and that ministry were more important than him pulling out of Tulsa with his wife Patti and two children to start anew, he gave in to what pleased his dad. Didn’t the Word say, leave father and mother? Yea, I thought so, but Richard Roberts ignored The Word of God. In fact, he left God out of the marriage. This was another one of those cases where the wife was urged to get the divorce because it would look bad for Richard and the ministry, which she did do. Well, Church, 10 months latter Richard married Lindsey and they started a new family – an adulterous one that is. God only knows, Richard, if you had remained with Patti, perhaps your posterity would not have been cut off.

  John Hagee: This man is a very popular preacher in the world of Jews. He and his current wife Diana, pastor a very large church in San Antonio. Before now, he was pastoring a church in San Antonio and admittedly was in immorality. He divorced his wife Martha and two children in 1976 and married Diana Castro, a young woman in his congregation, and started a new family. Mr. Hagee seems to be happy, but is he? His church is a big one, but does that mean God is there? He’s written or rather had ghostwritten, many books, but does that mean he is anointed by God to do so? Is John Hagee’s life and ministry kosher with God?   One day I happened to tune in to John Hagee’s program and he was teaching on love. My heart was stricken when I heard this adulterer say such things as: Marriage is an attempt to find love. Love makes a covenant in marriage. (Oh, really, now! What do you know about that?) Love is loyal. If you want to do something for someone, love someone. (Unbelievable!) If you want to do something for God, either come from behind the pulpit while in your adulterous state, or give up that unsanctioned adulterous marriage and family?

Arthur Blessitt: This man has been carrying a 12-foot cross around the world since 1969. He has gone into about 280 plus countries, doing what he said God told him to do, which I rather doubt. I doubt it because The Lord never ordered The Church to literally carry a big cross around on wheels, but did say take The Gospel to the people. It’s not the visible showing of a wooden cross that reminds or draws people to Jesus, but the all-powerful Word of God. Personally, I rather think Mr. Blessitt was tricked by the voice of the enemy to do such a duncical thing. Satan makes one do stupid things. The cross represents a dead Jesus Christ who never resurrected, when Jesus did in fact resurrect from the dead. The cross symbol is an accursed tree. The cross is symbolic of Jesus’ humiliating and agonizing death (memento mori” – a reminder of death or mortality, or a reminder that we must die). My questions is, why are we to remember death when Jesus didn’t stay in the grave but resurrected, as we will resurrect. So, you see, Satan tricked Arthur Blessitt into parading around the globe with an accursed symbol all these years, and his relationship with Christ was spiraling downward. He had a wife named Sherry and many children – if my memory serves me right, several children (7?), with one of them being mentally challenged. While carrying that old rugged cross he met an English woman by the name of Denise and obviously had an affair with her. He divorced his wife Sherry in 1990 and married Denise in 1990. At that time he was 49 and Denise was about 29. This was a man leaving the wife of his youth to prove his virility. It was all about “self” and forget about the covenant with God and his wife Sherry and those children. But yet he says, “I just love Jesus.” According to the August 1990 Charisma and Christian Life magazine, “Blessitt said he felt this was God’s will for him at this time [to get the divorce].” God’s will for him to divorce his wife! Please! On Arthur Blessitt’s web site, “Some Thoughts From Arthur” reads: I begin the new century with thrilling excitement. I…have been committed to following Jesus all my life…I love God and I love people….I love to do anything I feel Jesus tell me to do. My thrill is to please my Lord. (www.blessitt.com/news.html). Oh, is that right, Arthur. Arthur, do you really think you are pleasing your Lord in that adulterous relationship with Denise? No! You’re not. God is grieved over the fact that you sinned by breaking the marriage vows with Sherry and now by continuing to live in that adulterous relationship with Denise. Should you visit Mr. Blessitt’s site, you will discern how “full of himself” he is. It’s all about Arthur and what he’s done. On Trinity Broadcasting Network’s September 22, 2000 program, I heard Arthur Blessitt say, I love fallen men and women. What do you suppose he meant by that, being that he’s a fallen man whether he realizes it or not?

Sandi Patty: The very popular Christian singer had an affair with Don Peslis who was touring with her as one of her backup singers – “all just singing to the glory of God.” Divorced from her husband in 1993, she married her lover in August 1995 that was also divorced. Sandy committed adultery and her first husband John Helvering has the right to remarry and not be considered an adulterer. Sandi, well, she is currently in adultery in her marriage to her lover who also had a wife. Oh, how complicated, you’re perhaps thinking. But it’s not at all. It’s simply adultery – violation of covenant with God and their mates while they carried on their little love affair. In a 1998 Christianity Today article, Sandi is quoted as having said the following: I am in awe. God still loves me! God still loves me. Sandi, God never stopped loving you, but that doesn’t mean He has sanctified your marriage to the man you committed adultery with. The owning, naming, and confessing of the sin in my life was the beginning of experiencing the freedom that only comes through Christ…. Yes, Sandi, that was only the beginning of freedom, but you won’t have total freedom until you come out of that adulterous relationship with Don Peslis, whom you call you husband when he’s not.

Charles Stanley: The 67 year old pastor of Atlanta’s First Baptist Church was divorced by his wife of 44 years in May 2000. The grounds for the divorce were that the marriage was “irretrievably broken.” Anna Stanley, that’s not found in The Bible as grounds for divorce. In God’s site, there is nothing that cannot be put together again, including Humpty Dumpty. There had to have been something else. But, whatever it was, God knows the truth. (a) If Charles Stanley engaged in “any” kind of sexual act with other than his wife, then she had Biblical grounds for the divorce and Charles Stanley should leave the pulpit because of fornication. (b) If Charles Stanley initiated the divorce but requested the wife to file because it would look bad for him, then Charles Stanley should leave the pulpit because he broke his marriage vows for reasons other than his wife having committed fornication. (c) If Anna divorced Charles Stanley simply because they don’t see eye-to-eye anymore – an “irretrievably broken marriage,” then Charles Stanley should remain in the pulpit, living a life of celibacy, and no dating, until either God restores his marriage or Anna dies. Other well-known household names in the Christian world that are in adulterous relationships are: Amy Grant, Tammy Faye Bakker-Messner, Jim Bakker, Robert Tilton, W.V. Grant, Jr., A.A. Allen (deceased), Larry Lea, and good old self-proclaimed end-time false prophet, R.G. Stair, Prophetess Juanita Bynum-Weeks, Bishop Thomas W. Weeks, III, Bishop Eddie Long and the list goes on.

.

The ghastly unacceptable sins of infidelity, divorce continues by the Pastors even:
.
Bishop Eddie L. Long “Last week, the wife of Long, founding pastor of New Birth Missionary Baptist Church, filed for a divorce from her husband who has been enmeshed in a series of scandals, including alleged sexual harassment of young male congregants and allegedly being party to a million-dollar Ponzi scheme. Vanessa Long issued a statement Friday, Dec. 2, saying that after “a great deal of deliberation and prayer, I have decided to terminate my marriage to Bishop Eddie L. Long” and that she had authorized her attorneys to do so on Thursday, Dec. 1, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. However, a second statement later that day said Mrs. Long was planning to withdrawn the lawsuit, but the New Birth elder denied she had changed her mind through her lawyer, in a statement released Friday evening by Townsend and Stockton law firm partner Michael W. Tyler, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The statement reads: “Consistent with her original statement made this morning, Mrs. Long continues to hope that this matter may be resolved expeditiously, harmoniously and fairly; however, she has determined that dismissal of her divorce petition is not appropriate at this time.” Meanwhile, the Atlanta megachurch pastor announced Sunday, Dec. 4 that he would be taking a break from the church to spend time with his family. If the divorce proceedings do indeed go through, this would be Bishop Long’s second divorce. “
.
“Benny Hinn’s wife, Suzanne Hinn, filed her divorce papers Feb. 1 2010, after more than 30 years of marriage to the popular televangelist famous for faith-healing sessions that attract crowds of thousands. The Benny Hinn Ministries’ founder’s wife reportedly referred to irreconcilable differences as cause of divorce. The couple previously separated on Jan. 26. “Pastor Benny Hinn and his immediate family were shocked and saddened to learn of this news without any previous notice,” Don Price, a longtime senior adviser to Benny Hinn Ministries, said at the time. “Although Pastor Hinn has faithfully endeavored to bring healing to their relationship, those efforts failed and were met with the petition for divorce that was filed without notice.”  ( BENNY HINN SAYS HIS WIFE WAS ADDICTED TO DRUGS FOR 15 YEARS?  GOD SPEAKS TO BENNY HINN ABOUT OTHERS BUT NEVER ABOUT HIS OWN WIFE AND FAMILY?) Hinn has often been scrutinized by the media over the practice of preaching his miraculous healings and the lavish lifestyle he leads. He travels to cities across the globe conducting “miracle crusades.” At the time of the divorce filing, Hinn was living in a multimillon-dollar home and flying around the world in a leased Gulfstream jet, according to LA Times.”
.
“Zachery Tims, the founding pastor of New Destiny Christian Center (NDCC), an Apopka, Fla., megachurch, died in New York City in August. He was married to Riva Tims, who founded the ministry with him in 1996. The couple divorced in 2009, which is when Riva Tims founded Majestic Life Ministries. Zachery Tims, 42, was found dead in a room at the W Hotel in Times Square on Aug 12. As news reports suggest that drugs might have been involved in his death, some observers have been asking whether the popular pastor would have died in such a fashion had he not divorced. It has also been reported that Tims had cheated on his wife for a year with a stripper. Riva Tims honored her late ex-husband during a funeral ceremony attended by Paula White, among other evangelist personalities.“Zachery’s death may have caught us by surprise, but it has not taken God by surprise,” she said at the time in a room packed with church members and supporters.”
.
“Randy and Paula White of Without Walls International Church in Tampa, Fla., a popular ministering duo, announced they were planning to divorce in August 2007. They founded the megachurch together in 1991 and one of the questions raised over their divorce was that of the church’s financial stability.The couple, which had been married for nearly 18 years, said at the time the split was amicable. They have both been married and divorced before. They also mentioned that the divorce comes after years of visits to counselors.“It’s the most difficult decision I’ve ever had to make in my entire life,” Randy White told the congregation at the time, with his wife at his side at the podium and appearing choked up, according to Tampa Bay Online.Trouble in the couple’s marriage was picked up by The Tampa Tribune in May 2007 as the two were rarely seen preaching together anymore. Both blamed the two different directions their lives were going in. At some point, it was reported that Paula White had been dating Hinn. White denied it in a service in April. “  http://global.christianpost.com/news/bishop-eddie-long-to-join-list-of-other-high-profile-megachurch-divorces-64323/#ERfz1b8BJwYahPyc.99

Research from the Marriage and Religion Research Institute shows that while only 8 percent of youth who come from intact married families and attend church each week are likely to use tobacco, alcohol, or marijuana as a minor, this number increases to 18 percent among youth who do not live in an intact married family and never attend church. This effect holds into adulthood as well, for only 24.7 percent of adults in always intact marriages who attend religious services weekly drink too much alcohol, compared to 52.1 percent of adults who do not attend church and are not in an intact marriage.  While the life and formation of each person is far from formulaic, there is much to be said for the protective nature of the family, and the wisdom of Proverbs which admonishes that we “Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” http://www.marri.us/

Divorce and remarriage is rampant amongst Born Again Believers in The Church of Jesus Christ. It is so cancerous that pastors and other leaders in The Church are divorcing their mates, to all appearances, for reasons other than fornication, and obviously think that God forgives them and they then turn around and marry a new mate whom God supposedly has brought their way. These people honestly believe that God okays divorce and remarriage. They think it’s life as usual.
.
Using statistics drawn from nationwide survey interviews with nearly 4000 adults….Among born again Christians, 27% are currently or have previously been divorced, compared to 24% among adults who are not born again. (Because of the large sample size involved, that difference is statistically significant)….Surprisingly, the Christian denomination whose adherents have the highest likelihood of getting divorced are Baptists*. Nationally, 29% of all Baptist adults have been divorced. The only Christian group to surpass that level are those associated with non-denominational Protestant churches: 34% of those adults have undergone a divorce*…. (Christianity Today Online. “Christians Are More Likely to Experience Divorce Than Are Non-Christians. December 21, 1999.)  
.
God joins a man and a woman, He doesn’t separate them; and if a divorce is not permitted according to God’s Word, then the remarriage is not permitted as well. God is in the business of restoring marriages. In a marriage you don’t have to become a cow and jump over the moon for it to work. Simply be obedient to the marriage vows and not only will God bless you but He’ll bless the marriage as well. That’s part of the three-fold covenant (you, your mate, and God). God blesses covenant-keepers or people who keep their vows, and He curses those who don’t, including Born Again Christians. The key to being blessed in marriage is to keep the vows – your word must mean everything to God and to your mate. I repeat the following Scripture: When thou vowest a vow unto God, defer not to pay it; for he hath no pleasure in fools: pay that which thou hast vowed. Better is it that thou shouldest not vow, than that thou shouldest vow and not pay (Ecclesiastes 5:4-5). Before Jesus said that divorce and remarriage is the sin of adultery (except for fornication), He made it painfully clear that God’s Word on the issue had not softened and will not soften, when He said, it is easier for heaven and earth to pass, than one tittle of the law to fail (Luke 16:17). The law referenced in that verse of Scripture is not the carnal ordinance of Moses law (Are You Really Not Under The Law?) that were nailed to the cross with Jesus. The Law is God’s Word, His high holy standard – His instructions or His teachings for His people. When it comes to divorcing and remarrying, obey God’s Word only. In His instructions He list fornication as the only grounds for divorce and that’s that. (1) The practice of marriages being annulled or rendered void is not in God’s Word and therefore disallowing annulment as an alternative to divorce. (The only real alternative to divorce is to remain married.) Absolutely no person can say that the marriage bond never existed regardless of the fact that the couple lived as though they were married, which is what annulments declare. Again, annulments are not of God and hence are not recognized by God. (2) For Heaven sake, pay absolutely no attention to the Rabbis of old who wrote in the Talmud that one may divorce his wife if she burned his soup, or even if he finds a prettier woman than she. That goes against God’s Word and is therefore not of God. Pastors and all church leaders who not only win souls to The Lord, but also feed those very same souls, are to be examples of doing God’s will. They are to be examples of righteousness and holiness that equals to obedience to God’s will according to His Word. Jesus was The Church’s example and those in position of Church leadership are compelled to be examples as well by not committing adultery. No one escapes adultery when he or she divorces and remarries; nor when the result of one divorcing a mate and that mate remarries. No one escapes adultery. You in The Church of Jesus Christ, if you are righteous, you will hate lying – hate the lying spirit that is in those who don’t keep their promises. They are covenant breakers and you must keep your distance from them until they get it right with God. But, no, you instead sit under their ministries, invite them to preach and teach in your churches, purchase their recordings, and have them come entertain you. By you doing this, you are supporting their sin and that is a slap in God’s face. It’s a slap in God’s face because you are not taking His Word to heart in judgment of the covenant breakers. Do understand, you are not judging but God and His Word is doing the judging, and all you’re doing is going by His Word which is in you, if it is. You’re so afraid that you might be judging these covenant breakers and not loving them, but when you accept them in their adulterous state, you are not loving God and you’re not loving them because you’re encouraging them to remain in their sin. God forbid! Church of Jesus Christ, it must be put to you bluntly for there is just no other way to say it. When you sit under the ministries of these men and women who divorced their mates for reasons other than fornication, you are supporting them in adultery. Yes, adultery! They are parading before you with a Bible in their dirty hands and Jesus’ name rolling off their filthy lips, and you receive it with an open heart.
.
Please understand, if they ever had an anointing upon them, they don’t have it now. It’s gone because of the adulterous state they are in. Those preachers in particular know that God’s Spirit isn’t upon them. So they pretend. They lie as they go through the motions of one with the anointing on him or her. These people are not illiterate. They do their homework and put together a fairly decent sermon. But, it takes more than that. If the Spirit of God is not upon that person delivering the message, it is also not on the message. Saints, these adulterous people are fooling you because you can be fooled. Get tired of being fooled and get from under them. Search out the real stuff! You’re dying and you don’t even know it. Those of you sitting under adulterous leaders, you must question your walk with God. You receive those adulterous leaders because your walk is not right with God. Since your walk is not right with God, you see nothing wrong in what they are doing. These people do not have a godly ministry because of the sin of adultery, and God is not winking at this immorality. That’s it. It’s immoral what these leaders are engaging in, and you are letting the Devil make a fool of you by saying “you’re being judgmental” or “that’s not loving them.” If by using God’s Word to point out sin you are accused of being judgmental, then so be it. Better before God to be accused of such than to be approving of such sin as adultery in The Church. Church, it’s time to get it right.
.
Something had to be said about the sin of divorce and remarriage in The Church of Jesus Christ and God impressed upon my spirit to speak forth on the matter that is out of hand. I am not judging in what has been said because I am not in the position to do so. God alone is in the position to judge, which is why I used the Word of God and the natural facts already public knowledge to say what I have had to say in this message. My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, it is God’s Word that is judging, not I. The word to you from The Lord is to cut loose from these ministries whose leaders are in adulterous relationships because He will never have His people sit in a house of sin. stop patronizing those entertainers who are in adultery, even as this is written. When you patronize them you are telling them everything is okay when everything is not okay. These people are exploiting you. stop having those evangelist come into your churches while they are yet in adultery, for they have nothing to feed you but death. If you hated this rebuke, you are foolish. Jesus is purging His Church.” PS: This is also applicable to all of you sitting in the church pews every week while still in adulterous marriages.

  It seems also that lying, cheating, stealing, adultery, pornography, alcoholism, slander, gossiping, etc.,  is something that  too many pastors also cannot give up on these  days too. They are all going to Hell not Heaven as well..   (Heb 3:10 KJV)  Wherefore I was grieved with that generation, and said, They do alway err in their heart; and they have not known my ways. 11  So I sware in my wrath, They shall not enter into my rest.) 12  Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God. 13  But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin. 14  For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence stedfast unto the end; (Rev 21:27 KJV)  And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb’s book of life. (Rev 22:14 KJV)  Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. 15  For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie. (1 Cor 6:9 KJV)  Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,10  Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God     
00until-death

 Some of the reasons that relationships and even marriages fail are unrealistic expectations, greed, lies,  laziness and a spouse has false personal values, false assumptions, -the myth of the greener grass, and also the inability to handle the sheer pace, stress of   life. And for sure sexual infidelity will tend to kill a marriage, be an immediate grounds for a divorce too.

If you still do have a God shaped vacuum that is unfilled, then no other things, no relationships or careers, goals, next will satisfy you, not any personal, social, community relationships..
 
Note this reality.. like it or not.. believe it or not..
 
Both fornicators and adulterers are excluded from Heaven. They are pursuing vanities as far as God is concerned..
 
“Have you not known that the unrighteous the reign of God shall not inherit? Be not led astray; neither whoremongers, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, the reign of God shall inherit. And certain of you were these! But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were declared righteous, in the name of the Lord Jesus, and in the Spirit of our God” (1 Cor 6:9).

  .

The Marriages that slide downward go through these stages: romance, reality, resentment, unforgiveness – bitterness  and rebellion – divorce.

still excludes the common realty also that bad friends, bad relatives, others do work hard to break up the marriages too….

Key steps that help to break this cycle and to change marriages are for a start…

-First, open your life fully to God. (Luke 6:27). Without God in control of your life these days it is likely your marriage ALSO  next will fail

-Second, follow God’s ways continually. (Ephesians 5:1)

- Honor each other: be faithful and committed, recognize the dignity and special worth of all others, admire, affirm and celebrate each other, and avoid continual fault-finding.

Our personal beliefs and feelings toward people tend to follow what we believe about them. A judgment is MY interpretation of someone’s life at a point in time, it still doesn’t give the whole picture and becomes a label by which I narrowly view and interpret that person. What are some reasons some people too often “put-down” or judge  others rather than affirm, accept them with Christ’s unconditional love? They firstly do not have the real love themselves. They likely come from troubled, divorced homes or are in a troubled marriage, home.

“A love that cherishes is patient and kind (1 Cor. 13:4). To be patient means “to take a long time to boil” and is the opposite of rudeness and irritability. Patience celebrates  our strengths and validates our uniqueness. Kindness involves being gentle, sensitive, considerate, thoughtful and helpful to make life easier for the other person. 

Love delights…

Such love enjoys giving attention to the other, spending time together. (Eccl. 9:9) Such love enjoys expressing affection to the other, including sexual intimacy for those who are married.(1 Corinthians 7:2-5). Such love enjoys growing spiritually with the other, together opening our lives to God  and praying, together getting to know Him better and together following His ways.

(2 Peter 3:18).

“How incredible it would be if in all of our relationships–with God, with our husbands and wives, with our families and with our friends–we could experience great delight!” (Schorr Line, May 29, 2009) Centre Street Church is affiliated with the Evangelical Missionary Church of Canada  http://www.cschurch.ca/

 .

Have you not read what has been said in the Bible still

(Matthew 19:1 KJV)    And it came to pass, that when Jesus had finished these sayings, he departed from Galilee, and came into the coasts of Judaea beyond Jordan; 2  And great multitudes followed him; and he healed them there. 3  The Pharisees also came unto him, tempting him, and saying unto him, Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife for every cause? 4  And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, 5  And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? 6  Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder. 7  They say unto him, Why did Moses then command to give a writing of divorcement, and to put her away? 8  He saith unto them, Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not so. 9  And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery. 10  His disciples say unto him, If the case of the man be so with his wife, it is not good to marry. 11  But he said unto them, All men cannot receive this saying, save they to whom it is given. 12  For there are some eunuchs, which were so born from their mother’s womb: and there are some eunuchs, which were made eunuchs of men: and there be eunuchs, which have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven’s sake. He that is able to receive it, let him receive it.

God Himself has now promised to meet all of our needs if we serve Him, not our wants, lusts, desires, wishes. http://kambulow.blogspot.ca/…/god-always-comes-first.html
 
Sadly too many divorces are ALSO caused even by outside influences.. such as by the input of bad persons too, even the demons such as bad lawyers, bad judges, bad relatives and the bad pastors too..   http://thefocusonthefamily.wordpress.com/2009/06/11/marriage-breakdown/
Now actually my whole bad family were bad slave drivers.. wife, mother and father in law, brother and sister in law, father, twin brother and his had wife too.. still are.. 30 percent of all persons need to be in jail all of their life.. the bullies, perverts, rapists, criminals, human rights abusersNot surprisingly many prideful people FALSELY STILL DO try to take the place of God in my life too, AND these imposters claim even that they have been chosen, designated by God to command over me, THAT I am required into forced submission to their whims, desires , commands. But funny God now himself has not revealed those facts as well to me BUT only to them. I put my trust in God and not in man..AND WHEN YOU DO NOT DO WHAT THEY WANT YOU TO DO THESE SAME RATHER LITTLE BAD CHILDREN NEXT DO INSULT YOU, SLANDER YOU, DIVORCE YOU, OSTRACIZE YOU, BAD MOUTH YOU. WHO CARES I DO NOT CARE TO DEAL WITH THEM FIRSTLY OR ANYMORE TOO..1 Cor 13:1 KJV) Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. 2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing. “Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offenses contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.” -Romans 16:17-18 KJVGod himself clearly does not accept verbal, physical, or human rights abuses(Mat 18:6 KJV) But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.(Mat 18:7 KJV) Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh!(1 Tim 6:6 KJV) But godliness with contentment is great gain.(1 Tim 6:17 KJV) Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not highminded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy;

(Psa 37:16 KJV) A little that a righteous man hath is better than the riches of many wicked. 17 For the arms of the wicked shall be broken: but the LORD upholdeth the righteous.

I know that even demon inspired persons will next face negative consequences cause so I am in the right asking them next to repent of these their wrong doings undeniably too..

Any Children of God even who are verbally abused they will next be also physically abused if the matter is not adequately dealt with ASAP Your Abusing others is a common reaction of the carnal flesh and is brought on by many different reasons such as 1: unfulfilled lusts or 2: a spoiled child syndrome who tries to get their own way by whatever method it can 3: sibling rivalry 4: people who have no or little moral values, respect of others 5: one’s parental influence and upbringing..6: demon possessed persons, etc. The devil, demons and demon seduced persons, professing Christian persons falsely, wrongfully take false delight in slandering, abusing, bashing others and their evident fruits of hatred alone The sad reality is abusers rarely change unless they are made personally to face some severe negative consequences, and the older they are the more severe it seems it has to be. So first you merely ask the guilty, bad persons personally to repent twice, the first time without a witness, the second time with witnesses THAT you have asked them to repent.. and proof, substantiation is NOT required.. after you have done that you can next post it openly on the net, tell all the others. Next God is fully free to deal with the unrepentant guilty offenders and believe me he will.. I have now been doing for decades too..ws how false they themselves now are too. they clearly had, do manifest the opposite of the fruit of the Holy Spirit which is love.

(Mat 18:8 KJV) Wherefore if thy hand or thy foot offend thee, cut them off, and cast them from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life halt or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet to be cast into everlasting fire.

(1 Tim 5:20 KJV) Them that sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear.

(2 Tim 4:2 KJV) Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.

(Titus 1:13 KJV) This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith;

(Titus 2:15 KJV) These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee.

ONE OF THE MOST COMMON, POPULAR TOPICS, SEARCHES ON THE INTERNET is can a Christian next get divorced and remarried, and the simple answer is no! but wait do not stop reading yet.. if you are married, living to a demon, a control freak, a liar, a lazy good for nothing abusive person then please now do immediately get out of the marriage, do get an immediate separation.. and this not the kind of advice you would expect from a preacher of peace and love, but I am telling you all this for our own good, and you can thank me later.. and maybe next the still good for nothing bum, lousy spouse, he or she will wake up as to what she is really like and they may try to get help to change herself, himself.. but meanwhile don’t feel guilty about the peace you now have in your life.. By the way make sure first you are not the creepy, a good for nothing spouse yourself otherwise by your actions you will be doing your own spouse a great, great service.  http://thefocusonthefamily.wordpress.com/2009/04/03/throw-the-bum-out/
My wife divorcing me was the best thing that ever happened to me next,, on many fronts too.. I have even happily divorced the last 30 years.. I can honestly say that the worse things that had happened to me in my own life next had turned out to be the best thing for me.. they caused me to grow spiritually and to grow closer to the Lord too, and we know that all things work for the good for those who love God..One of the first thing I did was become a church Pastor.. something my wife falsely opposed too. If you continue to willfully, continually disobey your husband “you are indirectly rebelling against God shaking your fist at God. You even have no faith in the will of God being attained for your life nor will it be.. the best you can hope for or expect next thus is the painful divorce.. NOW THAT IS SO TRUE WHEN SHE WAS WRONG IN SUCH A VITAL AREA HER AND MANY OTHERS THEY ARE NEXT WRONG IN SO MANY CAUSE THEY ARE STILL BEING LED BY THE SPIRIT OF DEMONS AND NOT THE HOLY SPIRIT. In Luke 13:16, Christ cast a demon out of a ‘daughter of Abraham’. Beware always of men and women, bullies, tormentors, control freaks, persons, civil and public servants, politicians, pastors, leaders, elders, who falsely do, will try to enslave you, oppress you, exploit you even while they claim they are proclaiming the truth, democracy, trying to help you, etc., http://thefocusonthefamily.wordpress.com/…/the-possession/Is 51:23 ..your tormentors {and} oppressors, those who said to you, Bow down, that we may ride {or} tread over you; and you have made your back like the ground and like the street for them to pass overIs 55:7 Let the wicked forsake his way and the unrighteous man his thoughts; and let him return to the Lord, and He will have love, pity, {and} mercy for him, and to our God, for He will multiply to him His abundant pardon. 8 For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways, says the Lord. 9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts.I am an expert on being hated by others, my family now too, was hated by everyone in my family for decades too”..

Often it is the Joseph syndrome, who was hated by his own brothers, it is a false control, a false power play, a controlling spirit. The Best way to deal with abuse is to shout rape in public at the top of your vice, call the police, tell others about it.. post it on the net.. that is what I do continually too… cause it works!

It has been amazing to me that, as I look back into my own life, half of the oppressions I have witnessed in my life, and any oppression all of it tends to be an unacceptable human rights abuse now too, all oppressions are still unacceptable , these oppressions now came from the least expected places, from the Bullies within the church , even from bad pastors, bad elders, bad deacons, and also within my related control freaked or despotic family members, all now proving to me that many of these professing Christians persons were still not real Christians in fact. The other half of the oppressions, and all of it too was unacceptable, came from fellow employees, bad contacts, acquaintances, neighbour, civil and public servants, cops !

God does not at all not allow, accept any human rights, verbal and physical abuses and neither should we.. And Exemplary public exposure of the Bullies, abusers, the bad, guilty persons serves everyone’s best interest next too. God undeniably himself does not show false partialities . Shout the abuses, sins truth from the housetops..

Let me tell you we do not have to accept human rights abuse that is a lie of the devil.. in this world we have the same rights as the bully even the right to see that a bully is punished for abusing us.. God is not ignorant about the injustices inflicted upon his people, nor does he accept any of our human rights abuses without punishing the abusers shortly.. see the Bible book of Esther if you have doubts..

Est 9:25 But when Esther came before the king, he commanded by letters that his wicked device, which he devised against the Jews, should return upon his own head, and that he and his sons should be hanged on the gallows.

In reality still THESE STILL MOSTLY PERVERSE PERSONS, liars, thieves who are next still expecting personally blessings, rewards, regards, honours like Haman in Esther 7:10 or the bad Queen who was replaced by Esther.. instead they are, will be reaping the shame, exposures of their own bad doings.. and do see and the creditor has come..
There are much too many even too typical Professing Christians now, even amongst the Catholics, Anglicans, Pentecostal, Fundamentals, Plymouth Dispensational Brethren, and whether they are open or closed Brethren, that are still deceitful .. and they are also those same persons who do still falsely and too often substitute next their own or men ‘s false teaching for those of Christ’s, and while the one Bible still does opposes divorce for all Christian persons, even the Plymouth Brethren undeniably, they too do often even encourage the divorce of any spouse, Christian or not, especially anyone who does not heed to the full brethren doctrines, for solely according to them too falsely the deceived Christian wife does not need to listen to her husband in anything, even from the same husband who was to be the head of the home as admonished by Jesus , especially if he does not jump at their command.. Not only the Brethren, but even bad Fundamental, Pentecostal, bad Baptist pastors also falsely now teach and do this as well all done while they falsely try to maintain a full, crooked control and economic grasp over their religious empires.. The poor wife who is seduced by any of these bad pastors is surely headed for a very severe downfall next ..  http://postedat.wordpress.com/2011/10/03/dispensationalists-plymouth-brethren/

Those unacceptable persons, bullies, abusers, control freaks, liars, slanderers

Mat 18:6 But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea. 7 Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh! 8 Wherefore if thy hand or thy foot offend thee, cut them off, and cast them from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life halt or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet to be cast into everlasting fire. 9 And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire. 10 Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, That in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven.

Abusers are often realLy deceived persons falsely believing they alone have the right to speak and to be heard.. they are generally the unacceptable bullies as well now.. all unacceptable always, still.. God himself does not tolerate, all such abuses. The right of free speech is never a right to lie about others, to bully them, to slander them, to put them down..

(Micah 2:8 KJV) Even of late my people is risen up as an enemy: ye pull off the robe with the garment from them that pass by securely as men averse from war.

(Micah 3:5 KJV) Thus saith the LORD concerning the prophets that make my people err, that bite with their teeth, and cry, Peace; and he that putteth not into their mouths, they even prepare war against him.

and it should not come as a surprise to you that if the Mothers are unfaithful,  liars, so are the children next too…
 .
and here is a note to the wise persons–
.
Many mostly still shallow, pretentious persons the   still mostly lying people do now make a great deal about their idols, relationships, the  Family, and Mostly during the holidays such as Christmas, Birthdays, Thanksgiving day etc. while they even  do neglect them the rest of the year..
.
The Bible itself  does not say too much good about any family in reality still as your relationship with Jesus is what is the most important still to God now..

According to the Bible, marriage is ordained by God to be between a man and a woman (Genesis 2:21-24; Matthew 19:4-6). Both Divorce and Gay marriage/same-sex marriage is a perversion of the institution of marriage and an offense to the God who created marriage.

Malachi 2:16 For the LORD, the God of Israel, saith that he hateth putting away: for one covereth violence with his garment, saith the LORD of hosts: therefore take heed to your spirit, that ye deal not treacherously.

While it is absolutely true that the love of Jesus for us, in that while we were yet sinners, he loved us and forgives, is  the biggest personal drawing force to God.. one of the saddest realization of mine next in real life is that half of the once loudly professing Christians will depart from real  faith next due to a variety of false reasons, such as the false pursuit of riches, being seduced, incomplete repentance, false denial of one sins.. etc., finally thus they are unwilling to pay the actual  price, to take up their cross and to follow  fully after God .

Now about tithing…
1/7 of the tithe collected by the priests was to be disbursed to the local poor people, the new testament equivalent of the churches weekly distribution to the poor persons,  and how many of these church pastors who try to enforce tithing today keep even this obligations? Almost none and why was that? Greed.. http://anyonecare.wordpress.com/2008/05/29/the-ttihe/
