Divorce: The Scandal of the Evangelical Conscience
Mark A. Smith, who teaches political science at the University of Washington, pays close attention to what is now commonly called the “culture war” in America. Though the roots of this cultural conflict reach back to the 1960s, the deep divide over social and moral issues became almost impossible to deny during the late 1970s and ever since. It is now common wisdom to speak of “red” states and “blue” states, and to expect familiar lines of division over questions such as abortion and homosexuality.

In the most general sense, the culture war refers to the struggle to determine laws and customs on a host of moral and political issues that separate Americans into two opposing camps, often presented as the religious right and the secular left. Though the truth is never so simple, the reality of the culture war is almost impossible to deny.

And yet, as Professor Smith surveyed the front lines of the ...

Jesus says in Matthew 5:32: "But I say to you that whoever divorces his wife for any reason except sexual immorality causes her to commit adultery; and whoever marries a woman who is divorced commits adultery."

2 Timothy 4:3, 4 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables.

Acts 15:29 that you abstain from things offered to idols, from blood, from things strangled, and from sexual immorality. If you keep yourselves from these, you will do well. Farewell.

1 Thessalonians 4:3 For this is the will of God, your sanctification: that you should abstain from sexual immorality;

"Why did American evangelicals surrender so quickly as divorce gathered momentum in America?"

The problem with this article is the word "evangelical" It is set up as a "strawman"

This is a word which has become meaningless in the church and out.

In this group which Jesus points to...
"22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?" (Matt 7)
= They would have been called "evangelicals" today.

But Jesus calls them....
"23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity."

The Remnant is a lot smaller than Mr Mohler appears to perceive.

No, fuzzy Logic,
1 Corinthians 9
9 For it is written in the Law of Moses, "YOU SHALL NOT MUZZLE THE OX WHILE HE IS THRESHING." God is not concerned about oxen, is He?
10 Or is He speaking altogether for our sake? Yes, for our sake it was written, because the plowman ought to plow in hope, and the thresher to thresh in hope of sharing the crops.---NASB
Matthew Henry wrote:
I Corinthians 9:9:
1-14 It is not new for a minister to meet with unkind returns for good-will to a people, and diligent and successful services among them. To the cavils of some,...Those who seek to do our souls good, should have food provided for them. But he renounced his right, rather than hinder his success by claiming it. It is the people's duty to maintain their minister. He may wave his right, as Paul did; but those transgress a precept of Christ, who deny or withhold due support
Of course some are paid what they are worth, which is nothing.

The last sentence of this commentary is:

"Divorce is now the scandal of the evangelical conscience."
- - -

I disagree.

The scandal has and always been, as Kierkegaard has pointed out in his Attack Upon Christendom, ORGANIZED RELIGION CONTROLLED BY PAID PROFESSIONALS WHO ARE SELF-PROCLAIMED GATEKEEPERS OF A CULT OF SANCTIFIED MEN WHO CONFORMED TO THE BELIEFS OF SOME SEMINARY AND WHO TRULY BELIEVE THEY HAVE THE DUTY TO TELL OTHERS HOW TO LIVE.

Mr. Mohler, your opinions are not needed. Jesus did not die so people like you could live the American dream by establishing yourself as someone who is needed to keep others in line and jsutifying your salary by writing TWADDLE. This fraternity of yours, called evangelical, is no different than any other exclusive society like freemasons.

Go away already!
