Dating for divorced christians
Since walking through my own divorce, I have come to the conclusion that God hates divorce because of the immense pain and suffering that it causes his children. There are scholars who say remarriage is only an option in the case of adultery.It is far less about sin and far more about his father’s heart for us. And there are scholars who say remarriage is always allowed because of God’s grace.
You don’t fit with the happy little families, all coming together to celebrate holidays and special events as a “complete” family.
Even if you did fit in, there are time constraints.
No matter what, any interpretation is exactly that: a interpretation.
Only the scripture itself is a divinely inspired Word of God.
And, even if you could find friends and activities, there’s no money for child care for an occasional evening of adult fellowship. You begged God, night and day, to save your marriage. You gave your all for years and years, and you never saw anything except continued adultery in return.
And then there are those well-meaning Christians who want you to know that you have failed Christ by your divorce. They tell you that if you remarry one day, you will forever be living in an adulterous relationship, surely condemned to eternal hell. Sometimes people turn their backs on God’s perfect plan for their lives. You sought wise counsel from those who knew you best.
Since we are throwing around things that God hates, let’s take a look at another passage: There are six things the LORD hates, seven that are detestable to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked schemes, feet that are quick to rush into evil, a false witness who pours out lies and a person who stirs up conflict in the community ( Ouch! Let me just say that anyone who is throwing Malachi at you needs to stop and take a look at Proverbs 6.
We, as Christians, need to remember that there is none righteous, not even one (Romans ). There are enough of those around that I can turn to them to gain from their years of education and experience.
We have to be very cautious about taking a human interpretation and forcing it on others, lest we become like the Pharisees.Tags: Adult Dating, affair dating, sex dating
