My Text for Sunday Evening at St Philips: Matthew 5:31-32:
"It has been said, 'Anyone who divorces his wife must give her a certificate of divorce.' But I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for marital unfaithfulness, causes her to become an adulteress, and anyone who marries the divorced woman commits adultery.
- Is this the final word on divorce?
- How does divorce cause her to become an adulterer?
- Is there room in Scripture for a person to get remarried after divorce?
- Historical situation?
- Pastoral Implications?
- Best things to read? Sermon to listen to?
- Anyone I should call?
I want to get this one right.
And it is not easy.
