Biblical? - no doubt about it. It's talked about regularly in the bible.
Sin? - no. Often, there is one party sinning by pursuing, the other party is taken along and really doesn't have any say in the matter.
Does God approve? He says clearly "I hate divorce".

I am so sorry to hear about your daughter. I hope many here on SermonAudio will be praying for her, specifically that God will deliver her from evil, from the evil one. And sadly that might also include "church members" who would further the abuse done to her by demanding that she and her children stay where their lives are at risk from someone who should be protecting them.

Becky,

Of course your daughter cannot stay with an abusive husband. Separation is necessary. Even Scripture calls for a time of separation when there are problems in the marriage. 1 Cor. 7:5

During this time of separation she can pray for his salvation. Her faith will be proven as she trusts the Lord to intervene. This may mean reconciliation or the husband may choose divorce. God is Sovereign.

Paul says in 1 Cor. 7:10,11 "But to the married I give instructions, not I, but the Lord, that the wife should not leave her husband (but if she does leave, let her remain unmarried, or else be reconciled to her husband), and ...." Paul acknowledges that there are times for leaving, but also gives instruction concerning the time of separation.

I'll be praying for your family concerning this.

Rom 5:3 says, ". .tribulation brings about perseverance; and perseverance, proven character; and proven character, hope;"

".. God peradventure will give them repentance to acknowledging of the truth.."

So what is to be, does God give repentance or not?

Are you going to apply your devilish hermeneutics to deny the teaching of the verse?

The wise thing to do is brush off the dust.

4For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.

Whatever one thinks about divorce, God has dealt with the subject within the context of the gentile church. If an appeal is made to the law or it's interpretation by Jesus (1Co 7:10 And unto the married I command, [yet] not I, but the Lord, Let not the wife depart from [her] husband 1Co 7:12 But to the rest speak I, not the Lord: If any brother hath a wife that believeth not, and she be pleased to dwell with him, let him not put her away), well, but the authority for our faith on the subject is in the epistles where there is an exception clause whether it is admitted or not.

It is OK to go to the OT to find out what God has to say on the subject (Mal 2:16 For the LORD, the God of Israel, saith that he hateth putting away...), but let us be instructed out of the epistles because they are written to instruct the NT church.

Ro 15:16 That I should be the minister of Jesus Christ to the Gentiles, ministering the gospel of God, that the offering up of the Gentiles might be acceptable, being sanctified by the Holy Ghost.

Ro 15:18 For I will not dare to speak of any of those things which Christ hath not wrought by me, to make the Gentiles obedient, by word and deed,

This, of course, is my humble opinion!

Yes, lawful divorce is biblical. The Roman Catholic Church forbids divorce and some Anabaptist sects, but God does permit lawful divorce for the innocent party of adultery and dissertion.

And because that marital bond is dissolved in a lawful divorce, another marriage is permitted (as we shall see in the text of Matt.19:9, 1Cor.7:27-28, Jn.4:18 and Deut.22:19).

The Lord permits lawful divorce for the reason of fornication or sexual sin in Matt.19:9 and Paul does so for a second reason in 1Cor.7:15.

Fornication refers to all sexual sin whether one is married or single (1Cor.6:18, also cf. Hos.2:2, 4:12).

For those of you who have been involved in a lawful Divorce which Rome or some Baptist minister has refused to allow you into the visible church of Christ, please appeal to Scripture and not their traditions for a firm foundation.

It is like blindly following Abigail because people have learned how to paste Scripture, but ignore the proper meaning of the verses in context of God's total intended meaning. The exception clause ("except it be for fornication") is totally removed by these folks, but God rightly keeps it in the Scripture.

Amen! Just got done listening to that sermon. It is so encouraging to hear other men of God shunning the culture and preaching the unadulterated principles of the Word of God.

Some points of interest:
1. Jesus makes a irrefutable distinction between fornication and adultery.
2. God instituted marriage to be a picture of Christ and the church. Just like God does not divorce us when we go and commit adultery with other Gods, so he expects the victim of adultery to be.
2. The issue of forgiveness. Now this is a point that I have not made but it is worth noting. Divorce is nothing more than a complete disregard of Jesus's command to forgive.

Just got through downloading that sermon and listening to it myself. I agree with Yamil, here. VERY encouraging sermon--expecially...uh...the FIRST of Yamil's 2nd points listed above!

I know we disagree over divorce and remarriage but what in the world is this business that you're a Jehovah's Witness?

That kind of reminds me of hearing about a man (it mayh have been in sermon here on SA) who when the Jehovah's Witnesses came to his door and they told him they were Jehovah's Witnesses said, 'I'm a Jehovah's Witness too' and invited them in to talk with them and after they gave him there talk, he told them, "You lied to me you're really not Jehovah's witnesses at all because....."
