Most say divorce isn't sinful
Americans, a new survey shows, believe in traditional marriage.

But they're also tolerant toward those who divorce.

A poll conducted for the PBS TV program "Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly" found that 71 percent of Americans said they believe in the ideal of lifelong traditional marriage between a man and a woman. But only 22 percent of the 1,130 adults surveyed agreed that divorce is a sin. Fifty-two percent, in fact, said divorce can be the best solution when a couple can't work out their marital problems.

Reflecting perhaps what was preached to them growing up, a higher percentage of those characterized as religious conservatives believe divorce is sinful. ...

There is much divorce and remarriage within The church today, I have known of at least two couples who are married to people they met at Church, when they both used to be married to someone else at the very same church.

Some Pastors will even advise women to leave their husband, if their husband is not a believer. This is contrary to Paul's teachings: 1 Corinthians 7:14 For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband: else were your children unclean; but now are they holy.

Matthew 19:3-12 King James Version

Malachi 2:16 King James Version

If someone has a spouse who is sexually abusing the children, they must get out! They must protect the children and separate! If you know a child is being abused and you do not report it, that is against the law here in Canada.

Mark 9:42-44 King James Version

Don't be deceived by lust into thinking you can practice adultery and fornication and still enter God's Kingdom! Repent! God will help you!

This can be identified as the pollution of Liberalism.
A Biblical case in point is the Church of Laodicea at Rev.3:14ff. They obviously meet together as a congregation, but from the description of the Lord, they have gone their own way.
In verse 20 we find Jesus saying the now famous quote, "Behold I stand at the door and knock......" An interesting question is, "Does Jesus invite them to LEAVE the Church to come to Him.?"

No offense.

Rephrase your argument so I may understand what difficulty you see in what I said.

Thanks Mike!

Greg I apologise to you, that was a different Greg. I should not have posted that unless I was sure.

Should have listened to my conviction before sending the letter.

I hope you can forgive me!

Graig do you have a clear understanding of what Adultery is? If you look upon a woman with lust you have already commited adultery within your heart.

This goes for married men as well as a single men.

Please forgive me if I am wrong here but I seem to remember you stating that you are presently living with a girl that you are not married to and when asked by someone if you had a problem with that you said "no".

Again if I am wrong, I do apologize.

Divorce is not as big a question as the right of remarriage. However, this is rarely discussed. If a divorce is sinful, then there is not the right to remarriage, because the remarriage would result in continual adultery. This is not to say that the formula is so wooden that the Scriptures do not give "wiggle room". I just cannot see much, surely not even close to what Christians are doing in Western Nations. Large numbers live in adultery.

With all due respect, I find the posting on divorce inadequate. You post certain scriptures but leave out certain other relevant scriptures. What do you say to those who have confessed their sin and become born again, but cannot undo the past? Or perhaps what would you say to a Christian who has gone through divorce and has realized that he/she has sinned and has confessed it to God, but because of circumstance cannot reverse the situation? Or what would you say to someone who has had a divorce from a previous partner on scriptural grounds (adultery for example) and is remarried? It is not as simple a subject as you make it sound. We should be sensitive to those who have gone through that.

Good point:
perhaps it is better stated that God
hates divorce.
Matt.19:6"Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not so."
Mal 2:16.."16For the LORD, the God of Israel, saith that he hateth putting away..."

Mal.2:14Yet ye say, Wherefore? Because the LORD hath been witness between thee and the wife of thy youth, against whom thou hast dealt treacherously: yet is she thy companion, and the wife of thy covenant. 15And did not he make one? Yet had he the residue of the spirit. And wherefore one? That he might seek a godly seed. Therefore take heed to your spirit, and let none deal treacherously against the wife of his youth. 16For the LORD, the God of Israel, saith that he hateth putting away: for one covereth violence with his garment, saith the LORD of hosts: therefore take heed to your spirit, that ye deal not treacherously. "

It is a sign of the hardheartedness of man that divorce is sometimes needed :
only made necessary because of the fall.

I appreciate Don's comment on this hard topic.
I would like to add:

God has experience in the topic.
His Word is sufficient for us.

Asking if divorce is a sin is like asking if reaching through a window and taking an expesive vase is a sin. (Depends - one might or might not have a right to the vase. One might might or not might have a right to divorce.)

Take the case where dear old dad has moved in with his girlfriend and keeps coming in and out of the family home, even with said girlfriend in front of the kids. Is the wife wrong in asking for a divorce? It could well be that the formal divorce is just the paperwork finishing up what dear old dad has already acomplished.

This is a hard question, most easily answered by those with no experinece in the topic.
