First things first, this is probably something most of us wouldn't normally talk about, & I have no personal experience with this, so I am by no means an expert. But I will give you a few things at the end of the blog that can help. This blog is about Biblical causes fit divorce, so be prepared for some emotions from people who read this. I never heard of this till recently, but there are churches that do this. They grant any divorce for profit, divorce for profit.
They find something in the Bible, & they use it to justify the divorce, even if it's not justified. They do it so they're popular with their congregation. That's one extreme. The other is the church that says divorce is never justified, that it is not permittable by GOD ever.
I had never heard that before either. I didn't know about thus, but I did know a man who was married six times. He didn't get a divorce once, he loved all of his wives. They were all killed by the same guy, some crazy man who thought that this guy was some devil worshipper, so he killed his wives.
The thing was, this happened almost 200 years ago, so it's not in any records, it was told to me by my late great grandpa. But 200 years ago he would probably have been killed if anyone knew he got married six times, so how'd it happen? Not one person thought that he was killing his wives, or that he was a bad man. I can only think that GOD was with whoever this guy was, or it was a wives tale my great grandpa was told, & he thought it was true, but the main point is that he never divorced, not once.
I get the feeling he went to the extreme church that didn't allow divorce. I'm gonna go out on limb & say he probably shouldn't have remarried. I can only imagine the guilt this guy felt, & how he didn't get a divorce. But to the extreme churches I would have given them this advice, and then maybe something else would have happened. There are 6 biblical cause for divorce &/or remarriage.
1.1) Death (Rom 7: 2-4; 1Cor 7:39).
2.2) Adultery (Deut 22:22; Matt 5:32).
3.3) Sexual immorality (Matt 5:32; 19:9).
4.4) Non-Christian quits the marriage (Mal 2:14-16).
5.5) Hardness of heart (Matt 19:8: Mark 10:5).
This allows for divorce, & the remarriage of the one sinned against, not the one who sinned. Also, don't decide this on your own, talk to several spiritual leaders at your church, and preferably other church’s. Talk to several pastors, at the least talk to two pastors from different churches (1 Peter 5:1-2; Hebrews 13:17).
Also, don't let the marriage become unholy, don't let any abuse into the marriage, don't let it become a nightmare (1 Peter 3:7; Ephesians 5:25). I can't give you very in depth info, but for some in depth info, listen to Mark Discroll's sermon "Jesus & the law" on his podcast, Type Marshill in search, or go to the website Marshill.com.
