IS IT OK TO GET A DIVORCE? (Mark 10:1-12)

June 3, 2013

Is it ok to get a divorce? The modern world that we live in would say, yes, when two people no longer want to be married, they should feel free to get a divorce.  Our religious establishments would say, no, the marriage relationship is permanent and should not be broken.  They go even farther and condemn those that do get a divorce and expel them from the church.  These churches treat those who have gotten a divorce as second-class citizens.  They forget that God is a gracious and forgiving God.  Our Creator, the almighty, living, God, created the institution of marriage to be between one man and one woman, and when that marriage is conducted in accordance with God’s will, it is the sweetest of experiences for that man and woman.  In fact, when two married believers have their eyes on God, that marriage is the closest thing to heaven that can be found on this earth. Unfortunately, man allows sin and hardness to enter into that relationship.  Once there, that sin and hardness creates a desire for the two people to separate what God has put together.  Listen to this podcast to learn what God says about marriage, divorce, and remarriage.  Listen to how the Bible answers the question of Is it ok to get a divorce?
