Ephesians 5:30 For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones. 5:31 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.
Just as a husband and wife are one flesh, the church is also one with Christ. So how is it Christ is not yet married to our souls?
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.
This verse and whats been quoted in Mark and Luke only say that remarriage is adulterous if they divorced for any reason other than fornication. There are NO verses that say one can not remarry if they divorced their spouse for adultery. Now, there is also no verses the explicitly states that one can remarry if they divorced their spouse because of adultery, but it is implied in the verse quoted above. When it says "and shall marry another" , it is referring back to one putting away his wife except for fornication, not all remarriage.
I doubt youll agree, so Im just gonna opt out of the discussion.
You have been quick to say over and over that someone cannot remarry even if they divorced on biblical grounds (fornication). Where is the verse in scripture that says one cannot remarry even if they divorced on biblical grounds?
2 Timothy 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 3:17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.

My head has cleared to the extent I can think fairly coherently as I wait patiently for some scheduled events to occur where I live. I wasn`t even sure my comment had registered but I had a vague recollection of seeing the post come up with my name on it. Making this post, it took me a while to find the thread where I put the comment for I had not been coherent enough at the time to make a book mark. Please keep me in mind, prayer wise, for the next couple of days as the events causing the problems are still ongoing. :
Here is some real climate change that those in Christ are all looking forward to, and the lost will dread:
2 Peter 3:10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. 3:11 Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, 3:12 Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? 3:13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.
To me its not so much about whether or not a Christian is responsible for how a cake is used, but rather that a Christian should not have to make a cake for an event that goes against their convictions. The homo facsists are so blinded by their ungodly agenda that they cant see their own hypocrisy. They want everyone to accept their beliefs, but they wont tolerate our beliefs.
I guess you would have us say nothing when sanctimonious pharisees revile true saints and propagate error? When if someone who is a new convert were to read some false doctrine here, and fell for it because no one could be bothered to rebuke for the sake of getting along.
Ephesians 5:11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather REPROVE them.
