Divorce and Remarriage

It is truly sad how many people you come in contact with who are unscripturally divorced and remarried. With the divorce rate in Texas at about 45%, many opportunities exist for people to transgress the will of God. Matthew 19:9 says, “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.” Jesus gave only one exception for divorce and remarriage. Anyone who has gotten divorced for “irreconcilable differences” and has married again is living in adultery and is therefore in sin.

Romans 7:2-3 says, “For the woman which hath an husband is bound by the law to her husband so long as he liveth; but if the husband be dead, she is loosed from the law of her husband. So then if, while her husband liveth, she be married to another man, she shall be called an adulteress: but if her husband be dead, she is free from that law; so that she is no adulteress, though she be married to another man.” As you can plainly see, while a woman is married to someone unscripturally, she is called an “adulteress.”

This passage proves that the adultery remains as long as someone remains in the unscriptural relationship. Someone living in an unscriptural marriage is a sad situation. But if you value your soul and your eternal destiny, you will repent of your sins and leave the relationship, thereby removing yourself from the sin of adultery.
