( FaithOfJesus thread begun by rRandyP )

Today's Verse:


kjv@Matthew:5:31 @ It hath been said, Whosoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorcement:

kjv@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.

Today's notes: Putting Away A Marriage


What is man believing/doing?:

What is making man to believe/do as he is doing?:


How much does God want to help us to better use our own resource verses us boldly stepping out into His? How much help did Peter need to walk on water? How much help did Moses need to part the Red Sea? The woman to close her issue of blood? Is the "ye of little faith" little faith in our ability or His?

Can the church body be blamed for the present divorce rate within it? It can if it hasn't conveyed the concept of "Christ's work upon us in all areas" as opposed to "do what you're doing and God will bail you out at some point".

What are the ill effects of the furtherance of adultery within and upon the body that Christ seeks to lift us above (exceed)?

Key Messages:

    What does this say about our present condition?
  1. Many are just looking for a way out and seek the church's consent. Other's started down a ill advised road and are now coming to live the consequences. Other's the church has never been a consideration and they are seeking the church's counsel because it is free and relatively unassuming. For many the spiritual inner workings of union/marriage are of little interest till all trouble breaks out, when they realize it all is beyond their resource. The problem is that church catches the blame regardless.
  2. The poor in spirit/mourning/meek/hungred/joyfully suffering couple who Christ is blessing and working on being congregated as a larger body of same mind to reflect His light/salt His earth/be a city unto His praise is becoming harder and harder to find because of the flood of divorce, the rash of lust and anger, the civility of spineless righteousness; the wide road is over shadowing the narrow path; just as Christ knew it would do.
  3. Marriage is largely looked at one's attempt to make themselves happy not to better serve the eternal interests of their spouse nor Savior. Failing by their own resource is seen as proof that it wasn't meant to be.
