Divorced Decision

Wednesday, January 23, 2013
     I have a friend whose husband recently asked her for a divorce.  She prayed that they would be reconciled, but he insisted on divorce.  Then she prayed that God would provide her the evidence that he cheated so that when they are divorced, she can remarry.  She now has evidence that he cheated, but I’m worried that doesn’t give her the right to remarry.  Isn't the put-away party never allowed to remarry unless the spouse dies?

Sincerely,
Friendly Concern

Dear Friendly Concern,

Your question is an important one and is one that many Christians wrestle with because of the high divorce rate in American society.  Adultery is wrong, and every divorce is caused because of sin.  God hates divorce (Mal 2:16), and His desire has always been for men and women to remain married for a lifetime (Matt 19:4-6), but it isn’t as simple as saying the put-away party can’t remarry – that isn’t biblically accurate.

Because of the complexities of this issue and because every circumstance is unique, we recommend that people with questions on this subject listen to the sermon series “Marriage, Divorce, and Remarriage”, compare the sermons to Scripture, and then faithfully examine themselves to see whether they are living as God intended (Php 2:12).

A Little Lower Than The Angels

Tuesday, January 22, 2013
All right.  Lucifer and his lot rebelled against God (this rebellion clearly showing free will) and were shown no mercy, no forgiveness, and every one of them was thrown into Hell.  Billions of humans rebel against God daily; thousands of us claim to be God, and yet He forgives us as easy as breathing. Why?

Sincerely,
Feeling Privileged

Dear Feeling Privileged,

You are referring to 2 Pet 2:4 where it states, “For if God spared not angels when they sinned”.  That verse really is all we know about the great epic angelic battle fought in the heavens.  We have a few glimpses of the battle between Satan and Michael the archangel (Jude 1:9) – but nothing to ever clarify the details of how God is handling the angels or what, if any, opportunities they had to repent.  Truth be told, we know so little about how angels work and what their relationship is with God that we cannot make any judgments about how God has dealt with the rebellious angelic host.  It would be akin to deciding who was right in an argument when you didn’t even know what it was they were arguing about!  Proverbs says that making hasty judgments in disputes we don’t understand isn’t a good idea (Pr 26:17).  In this situation, we must simply say, “The secret things belong to God” (Deu 29:29).
