THE GOSPEL OF MATTHEW
Part 15: The Ugliness of Divorce
God instituted marriage at the dawn of humanity, a
special lifelong union that was never intended to be shattered by
divorce. The plan was for a man and woman to be joined and remain
together until separated by death. However, sin made an allowance
for a schism that God never intended because it separates a family,
hurting everyone involved, especially children. Sadly, half the
marriages in America today break apart due to arguing, poor
communication, lack of emotional/physical intimacy, infidelity,
financial problems, and drug abuse. Does Jesus want you to stay in a
physically abusive marriage? Absolutely not! Self-preservation and
common sense give you the right to flee such a relationship. But
what happens if you’re divorced for a frivolous reason? It’s just
like any other sin. Jesus paid for it on the cross and all you have
to do is repent, but the consequences of your action will remain.
