Divorce and Remarriage in the Bible
A love that Flows from the Cross

The Text
Matthew 19:9

"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.”
Matthew 5:32

"But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery."
The Meaning
The Application
1 Corinthians 6:15-17

“15 Know ye not that your bodies are the members of Christ? shall I then take the members of Christ, and make them the members of an harlot? God forbid. 16 What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh. 17 But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.”
Idolatry is the ultimate assault on oneness with God
Fornication is the ultimate assault on the oneness of marriage
The Epistles
The Text
The Meaning
The Application
Professing vs. Posessing
1 Corinthians 7:10-16
1. Paul is giving opinion not inspiration
No, Paul is giving more information than Christ as a result of the church age
2. Paul is saying there can never be remarriage
No, Paul is saying if there has been unbiblical divorce there is no remarriage, which is the same as what Christ said.
3. Paul is not saying they are free to remarry, just that they are 'free' to be alone
No, Paul uses 'bonds' as a euphemism for marriage, he put this in a different category with response and result, and if they are 'free' they are completely free.
Pleased to Dwell
This does not mean . . .
Pleased to dwell if I can abuse you
Only applies to a Believer and an Unbeliever
Matthew 18:15-18
5. Divorce is permitted between a Believer and an Unbeliever if the Unbeleiver does not wish to remain married.
6. If it is a biblical divorce, there is the freedom to remarry.
7. If it is an unbiblical divorce, there is no freedom to remarry.
I will be constantly working on my marriage as a reflection of my sanctification born out of a love of Christ.
1 John 4:19-21

“19 We love, because he first loved us. 20 If anyone says, "I love God", and hates his
, he is a liar: for he who does not love his
whom he has seen cannot love God whom he has not seen 21 And this commandment we have from him, whoever loves God must also love his
