A Concerned Christian (10/21/2019)
from Michigan
“ We have to stand up for what Jesus taught! ”
The statement of Jesus that says "if a woman divorces her husband and marries another, she is committing adultery" seems pretty straightforward. If that is not clear enough, Paul's admonition that a wife is bound to her first husband and cannot remarry as long has he lives (1 Corinthians 7:39) should dispel any doubts. We are just as deceived as the homosexuals are in the sense that both of us have accepted that the government has the final say so in what is and is not a valid marriage. The government issues certificates to divorced people and homosexuals telling them that their marriages are valid. This drags a new partner into a relationship that is nothing more than state-sanctioned adultery. We cannot live in violation of the principles that Jesus established. Because continuing in adultery and homosexuality causes one to forfeit eternal life. We have to stand up for what Jesus taught on marriage. The secular judge somehow has the power to let you commit adultery. The danger of all of this, is that just like the homosexuals who somehow feel that their marriage certificate makes their behavior right in God's eyes so millions of Christians are also deceived into thinking that their marriage certificates make their adulterous marriage legal in God’s eyes.

“ Thank you for teaching TRUTH! ”
Divorce is a legal action that the civil government adopted. A couple may go to the church to get married, but they have to go to the civil government to get a divorce. The Church cannot grant a legal divorce. Once divorce occurs, a person is not single again in God’s judgment; therefore they are not free to marry another person. The “one” union with their spouse can only be ended by the death of one of the marriage partners. According to Jesus, a marriage cannot be ended by the legal proceedings of the court. Jesus makes it clear that adultery occurs in remarriage because He does not view a new partner as the lawful spouse. The bond of marriage ends with death. Romans 7:2-3

“ Dr. Kim’s Sermon is Not Popular but It Is Biblical ”
David Lucas said; "The party at fault, however, is not free to remarry as their divorce action was NOT VALID." If you said their divorce action was not valid then how can he remarry? David Lucas said; "Only after sincere heartfelt remorse and repentance would remarriage be available to them." How could remarriage be available to them if Jesus calls their remarriage ADULTERY? David Lucas said; "Despite the fact that the innocent party may still love their former spouse, as God continued to love Israel, the covenant has been broken. IT NO LONGER EXISTS!" How can the covenant no longer exist after a divorce if God charges the divorced person with adultery AFTER the divorce? Adultery can only be committed by a married person. The divorce papers did not end the marriage, if Jesus said you will commit adultery on your spouse AFTER you divorce them! "A wife is married to her husband as long as he lives; but if her husband is dead, she is free to be married to whom she wishes, only in the Lord." said by Apostle Paul (1 Corinthians 7:39) "Anyone who divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultery and the man who marries a divorced woman commits adultery." said by Jesus (Luke 16:18)

“ Dr. Kim’s Sermon is Spot On! ”
"God's will is for you to be holy, so stay away from all sexual sin. Then each of you will control his own body and live in holiness and honor, not in lustful passion like the pagans who do not know God and his ways. Never harm or cheat a fellow believer in this matter by violating his wife, for the Lord avenges all such sins, as we have solemnly warned you before." (1 Thessalonians 4) God said He avenges all such sin. If He avenges the sin of taking someone's spouse, you can be sure he does not allow you to keep that spouse. The Lord is the avenger of all such sin - He solemnly warns us. Do not take someone's spouse! "The man who commits adultery is an utter fool, for he destroys his own soul." (Proverbs 6:32)

“ Must I Divorce My Remarriage ? Answer; No. ”
Some comments say that although the covenant was broken by one party that nevertheless the covenant conditions still apply & therefore remarriage is impossible. This is faulty (circular)reasoning. It does not stand up to scrutiny. Despite the fact that the innocent party may still love their former spouse, as God continued to love Israel, the covenant has been broken. IT NO LONGER EXISTS! Fullstop! Reconciliation is the Biblical ideal, but that requires a 'NEW Covenant' just as Scripture foresaw in Jeremiah & Ezekial. You CANNOT build a new relationship on an old broken covenant, a NEW covenant must be put in place. A new marriage with new vows. Where reconciliation isn't possible, the injured party has no limitations whatsoever placed on them as they have been abused, abandoned & neglected which are VALID reasons for divorce (per Ex.21:10-11 criteria). They are free to remarry, it's their sole freewill choice. The party at fault, however, is not free to remarry as their divorce action was NOT VALID. Only after sincere heartfelt remorse & repentance would remarriage be available to them. God would even forgive them as he forgives all repentant sinners. The key determinant is this; Was the preceding divorce VALID or not from the perspective of the person seeking remarriage.

Marek (10/7/2018)
from Czechia
“ Dr Kim Sermon. ”
Dr. Kim calls upon Augustine to support the thrust of his message. I call upon John Calvin to refute it. Commenting on Matthew 19 v 9 Calvin writes, ''though Christ condemns as an adulterer the man who shall marry a wife that has been divorced, this is undoubtedly restricted to unlawful and frivolous divorces. In like manner, Paul enjoins those who have been so dismissed to remain unmarried, or to be reconciled to their husbands.'' (1 Corinthians 7:11)

Jacob (4/30/2018)
from Michigan
“ Jeremiah 3 ”
Although God divorced Israel, He maintained the marriage with His wife. The divorce temporarily suspended the fellowship, the life together, but it did not abrogate the bond of the union itself. Divorced Israel remained the wife of the LORD. Although His wife was unfaithful, although she committed adultery with numerous lovers, although she was as yet impenitent and although God had divorced her, God was still her husband and she was still His wife. The bill of divorce did not touch, much less dissolve, the marriage bond. Verse fourteen of Jeremiah 3 is decisive, and explicit, regarding the question, whether God divorced an original wife so as to annul the marriage and open the way for Himself to marry another. Addressing faithless, divorced Israel, Jehovah exclaimed, "Turn, O backsliding children, saith the LORD; for I am married unto you: and I will take you one of a city, and two of a family, and I will bring you to Zion." Indeed, the fact of the marriage is the reason why God called Israel back, as it is the reason why she ought to come back, to live with Him: "For I am married unto you.”

Very good exegesis. Stephen clearly looked at the whole picture that Scripture stated.

“ Misinformed and Faulty Teaching ! ”
Re-marriage after a VALID divorce is allowed in Scripture. Adultery (the most commonly recognised reason) is covered in Deut.24:1. But Abuse, Abandonment & Neglect are also covered in Exodus 21:10-11 and confirmed in 1 Cor.7. The point to make, is that any preceding divorce must be a VALID divorce, and NOT a 'convenient' Any Cause divorce, common for the time of writing of the Gospels.

“ Great Sermon! ”
But if we come to faith at a time when we have already divorced and remarried several times, what then shall we do? God is merciful. We have sinned in ignorance. We may be compared to an OT saint, like David, who had 12 wives. Each of them was legitimately married to David. And thus if we have divorced three times and we have married four times it means that we have accumulated four wives. But now that we have become saved we should remain in the marriage wherein we are found, and consider our present wife as the one and only mate we have. But it also means that we are no longer eligible to accept the function of elder or deacon of a church, for we read in 1Tim 3 that an elder as well as a deacon must be the husband of one wife.

Ezekiel (4/25/2018)
from Auburn
“ Most Pastors Won't Speak This Truth! ”
Jesus said remarriage is UNLAWFUL while your first spouse is still living and the church has shut down this truth. Multitudes of people are living in adultery according the words of Jesus.

Erin (4/25/2018)

“ Preaching the Truth! ”
Thank you Dr. Kim for speaking out against such a prevalent and destructive false teaching in the church today. Jesus taught that marriage is for life. Even though this may be a very difficult teaching for many to apply, we have to trust and rely on God’s Word and promise. Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” Dr. Kim teaches what Jesus taught about marriage, divorce and remarriage and it totally refutes and destroys what is happening right now in the church. Jesus’ law of divorce and remarriage is, “I say unto you,” “He committeth adultery,” Why does he commit adultery after his divorce and remarriage? Because he is married still to his first wife, who is still his wife in spite of the divorce, that’s why he is committing adultery; so, too, if any man marries the divorced woman, he marries another man's wife.

“ Quote from Esteves from SA ”
Quote from Esteves from SA, �If remarriage is wrong, then all pastors are just as guilty as their church members.� You are right, the pastors are guilty if they don�t warn the people. �When the watchman sees the enemy coming, he sounds the alarm to warn the people. Then if those who hear the alarm refuse to take action, it is their own fault if they die. They heard the alarm but ignored it, so the responsibility is theirs. If they had listened to the warning, they could have saved their lives. But if the watchman sees the enemy coming and doesn�t sound the alarm to warn the people, he is responsible for their captivity. They will die in their sins, but I will hold the watchman responsible for their deaths.� Ezekiel 33

Ellie (4/25/2018)

“ Thank You Dr. Kim! ”
One of the most absurd and outrageous false teachings rampant in the Christian church today concerning marriage, divorce and remarriage is that when people remarry, they’re not committing adultery in the eyes of God! Since that is SO TOTALLY CONTRARY to what Jesus himself taught, there’s NO doubt that’s one of Satan’s MOST destructive and effective weapons, because Hebrews 13:8 says Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. And even more importantly, Jesus himself told us in Matthew 24:35, Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away. And the importance of His words can’t easily be discounted or dismissed, because the EXACT same verse is also found in Mark 13:31 and Luke 21:33, and it’s rather unusual for three of the four gospels to contain totally identical verses.

If remarriage is Wrong .. then all Padtors are just as guilty as there church members.

Elizabeth (4/22/2018)
from Lisburn
“ Great Sermon! ”
Is everyone not entitled to a second chance in life? When young it is always difficult to make right choices. For a girl to marry a man who physically abuses her for going to church fellowship is it not the man who breaks his first vows before God when he promises to love her comfort her and keep her as long as they both shall live? No one knows only those who live in a situation like eg being punched in the stomach when being pregnant is like? Is a woman not allowed to find happiness with someone who really cares for her and her children. I am now married to my second husband for 32 years and I treasure every minute even my children do. When I remarried in church I asked to Lord to forgive me my wrong choices and allow me a second chance? My husband is saved and the minister who married us gave us a bible and said take this book on your new journey, live by it, God’s Word is a book for people to be given a second chance and nothing can separate you from the love of God! This we did and we have been blessed abundantly in our married lives together! Now to me I know that Godis with us every day and I totally feel His blessings on our lives together and when I meet Him face to face I can only rejoice and thank him for it!

“ Great Sermon! ”
If your spouse you first married is still alive, then God sees you two as still married and one flesh. Repentance of sin involves changing your mind and in some cases to take a certain action. For example, for the sin of adultery one must break off or terminate the invalid relationship so you are no longer labeled as an adulterer.

“ Great Sermon! ”
1 Cor 7:15 states if an unbelieving spouse desires to separate then you are allowed to separate or "divorce". However, this "divorce" is different from how the world sees it. It means to not be living together but you are still one flesh. You are allowed to separate or allowed for the spouse to leave but you are not permitted to re-marry. The text doesn't say you are allowed to remarry but simply no longer bound to the circumstance of living together. Paul would later suggest if you do separate to reconcile and stay together.

“ I desire obedience and answers ”
I had a child at 17 and married her father (both unbelievers). He abandoned us and initiated a divorce a year later. He remarried, and subsequently divorced. I remarried (while still an unbeliever, and married an unbeliever) and have been remarried for 20 years with 4 children. I've been a Christian for the past 10 years. I was under the impression that I was forgiven for my adultery, and that this marriage was not to be abandoned. An I wrong? My husband is an unbeliever, hates God, and our marriage is bad, but wouldn't divorce be a sin now? All input welcome! My email is thenthefirefell@yahoo.com.

“ What about? ”
What about divorce in abandonment? What if a believer is abandoned and divorced by an unbeliever? 1 Cor. 7:15 seems to say that you are free to remarry.

“ Awesome Sermon! ”
God Bless you Pastor for standing for the Truth!....It may be hard to hear because plenty of saved people, have remarried.....But the truth is the truth and our flesh hate the Truth at times...

“ Great Sermon! ”
i met a guy at age 17 he was 21, i was a run away, i wound up being his foster sister (his parents volunteered to foster me) we had 3 children and never got married, i left him and married another guy, we divorced 10 years later even though we only lived together for 3 months , i went back to the father of my children and married him and then got saved, whose wife am i? i have asked pastors for this answer and no one replies, this is not a put on, this is reality for many, what does God's Word say?

Follower of Christ (4/30/2017)

“ Must I Divorce From My Remarriage? ”
Yes, a remarriage is an adulterous relationship unless your spouse has died. Jesus Speaks: "Everyone who divorces his wife and marries another commits adultery, and he who marries one who is divorced from a husband commits adultery." (Luke 16:18) "Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate." -Jesus Christ (Matthew 19:6) God is a party to the one flesh marriage covenant. "A wife is married to her husband as long as he lives." (1 Cor. 7:39) "For whoever is ashamed of Me and of My words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of Man will also be ashamed of him when He comes in the glory of His Father with the holy angels." -Jesus Christ (Mark 8:38) I am not ashamed of Jesus' Words on divorce and remarriage. Thank you Dr. Kim for speaking the truth! "Never cheat a Christian brother in this matter by taking his wife, for the Lord avenges all such sins, as we have solemnly warned you before." (1 Thessalonians 4:6)

Covenant Wife of 37 Years (4/30/2017)
from USA
“ THANK YOU PASTOR for being the very few who fear G ”
Must I Divorce (dissolve) My Remarriage? Answer: YES Jesus Himself calls remarriage ADULTERY.(Luke 16:18) 12 years ago my husband left to marry another (commit adultery). He thinks his divorce from me made him single. But God says something very, very different, a command to my husband... "A husband must not divorce his wife." (1 Cor. 7:11) because "A wife is married to her husband as long as he lives." (1 Cor. 7:39) All other relationships/marriages after divorce are adultery. (Luke 16:18) God's Word says I must wait for my husband to return or wait until he dies to remarry. Anyone who marries me (a divorced woman) commits adultery because I am still married to my husband. This is an adulterous generation. May God's TRUTH Prevail! Being a Christian is HARD! Preach On Dr. Stephen Kim! Indeed: MARRIAGE IS FOR LIFE!
