How do I confront One: ‘Who’ decides to DIVORCE!
Please allow me to ‘Ask’…? Why do those who seek a Divorce: “Falsely Claim” to be under the Grace of GOD: in forgiveness for their OWN: “SIN/SINS”…? And then put themselves BACK: “Under that LAW” to justify their “Divorce”…? They would try and use the Law: but ‘Not’ according to its “Written Context?” The Pick & Choose only those Bible verses; to Justify their Wrong Actions! And then discard the rest: especially those that: “Condemn their Wrong Actions!”
*** (Galatians 2:16) knowing that a man is ‘Not’ justified by works of the Law, but through faith in Jesus Christ; even we believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith in Christ, and ‘Not’ by works of the Law. For all flesh will ‘Not’ be justified by works of law.
*** (Romans 11:6) And if by grace; then is it no more of works [Law]: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then is it no more grace: otherwise work is no more work.
*** (Deuteronomy 13:1-to-11) If a prophet rises among ‘‘You’’, or a dreamer of dreams, and gives “You” a sign or a wonder,
(Deuteronomy 13:2) and the sign or the wonder which he foretold to “You” occurs, saying, Let us go after other gods which “You” have not known, and let us serve them,
(Deuteronomy 13:3) “You” shall not listen to the words of that prophet or that dreamer of dreams. For The LORD your God is testing “You” to know whether “You” love The LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul.
(Deuteronomy 13:4) “You” shall walk after The LORD your God and fear Him, and keep His commandments, and obey His voice, and “You” shall serve Him and hold fast to Him.
(Deuteronomy 13:5) And that prophet or that dreamer of dreams shall be put to death, because he has spoken to turn “You” away from The LORD your God, who brought “You” out of the land of Egypt and redeemed “You” out of the house of slaves, to thrust “You” out of the way in which The LORD your God commanded “You” to walk. So “You” shall put the evil away from the midst of ‘‘You’’.
(Deuteronomy 13:6) If your brother, the son of your mother, or your son, or your daughter, or the wife of your bosom, or your friend who is like your own soul, lures “You” secretly, saying, Let us go and serve other gods which “You” have not known, “You” nor your fathers,
(Deuteronomy 13:7) that is, of the gods of the people who are around ‘‘You’’, near “You” or far off from ‘‘You’’, from the one end of the earth even to the other end of the earth,
(Deuteronomy 13:8) “You” shall Not consent to him nor listen to him. Nor shall your eye pity him, Nor shall “You” spare, Nor shall “You” hide him.
(Deuteronomy 13:9) But “You” shall surely kill him. Your hand shall be first on him to put him to death, and afterwards the hand of all the people.
(Deuteronomy 13:10) And “You” shall stone him with stones so that he dies, because he has sought to drive “You” away from The LORD your God, Who brought “You” out of the land of Egypt, from the house of slaves.
(Deuteronomy 13:11) And all Israel shall Hear; and Fear; and shall do No more any such wickedness as this among ‘‘You’’.
“Why does GOD allow: ‘False Teachers’? – 101” …Blog
Do “You” realize that “Justifying Divorce”… is just like following after another god [small-g]…? When “You” justify Divorce, “You” mentally justify: “Another False god [small-g] & ‘That’ way of thinking! It is ‘No’ different than, what the OT Jew did so, as in the above Bible verses from “Deuteronomy 13:1-to-11”. What God said about His “Love, Mercy & Forgiveness”: is ‘Not’ enough for the NT Christian…? So exactly how should the NT Believer, who is Born Again: respond to divorce proceedings?
They must First: “Confront” their Mate… who also claims to be Christian. More than not; the perpetrator of the Divorce; will NOT listen! Nor will they take any of their spiritual counsel from their Mate! They have become “Blinded by Satan”: as Eve was: when she listened to the serpent. “Genesis 3:2-to-6”… Has God [Really] Said, “You” shall ‘NOT’…?” To simply call into question, God & Holy Word: is in itself a form of Rebellion. [1Samuel 15:22]
Simply PUT: “How can it be Wrong: when it Feels so Right”…?
ANSWER: Because GOD said SO…! “Exodus 20:14” & “Proverbs 9:17-18”
*** (Proverbs 16:25) There is a way that seems right to a man, but the end of it is the ways of death.
*** (1Timothy 2:9-to-15) Women, for their part, should display their beauty by dressing modestly and decently in appropriate clothes, Not by braiding their hair or by wearing gold, pearls, or expensive clothes,
(1Tim 2:10) but through good works. This is proper for women who claim to have reverence for God.
(1Tim 2:11) A woman must learn quietly with full submission.
(1Tim 2:12) Moreover, I do not allow a woman to teach or to have authority over a man. Instead, she is to be quiet.
(1Tim 2:13) For Adam was formed first, then Eve.
(1Tim 2:14) And it was Not Adam who was Deceived. It was the woman who was Deceived and became a Lawbreaker.
(1Tim 2:15) However, women will be saved by having children, if they continue to have faith, love, and holiness, along with good judgment.
*** (Galatians 6:1-2) Brothers, if a person is caught doing something wrong, those of “You” who are spiritual should restore that person in a spirit of gentleness. Watch out for your own selves; so that “You” are Not tempted as well.
(Gal 6:2) Practice carrying each other's burdens. In this way “You” will fulfill the law of Christ.
When the spouse who… perpetrates the Divorce; and will Not listen to “Galatians 6:1-2”: then the Pastor and the local Church they attend “MUST Intervene!” Here is the RUB…! In most Churches, upwards of Half the Church is: “Divorced” & “Remarried into Adultery!” Most Pastors do ‘NOT’ hold to the “Complete Authority” of the Holy Word of God. This procedure is called out in: “Matthew 18:15-to-18”…!
It is First the Responsibility… of the “Pastors & Elders” to address this “Scriptural Violation”. Then it is the “Responsibility” of the Church Body, the Bride of Christ to “Attend to the SIN”, in the Church. Here is the Procedure: Please follow it verse by verse…? And what happens WHEN: they will ‘NOT’ conform to this: “Scriptural Procedure”…?
*** (Matthew 18:15-to-18) But if your brother shall trespass against ‘‘You’’; go and tell him his fault between “You” and him alone. If he hears ‘‘You’’, “You” have gained your brother.
(Matt 18:16) But if he will Not hear ‘‘You’’, take one or two more with ‘‘You’’, so that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established. [Matthew 18:16 & Hebrews 10:28]
(Matt 18:17) And IF he shall neglect to hear them, tell it to the church. But if he neglects to hear the church, let him be to “You” as a heathen and a tax-collector.
(Matt 18:18) Truly I say to ‘‘You’’, Whatever “You” shall bind on earth; shall occur, having been bound in Heaven; and whatever “You” shall loose on earth; shall occur, having been loosed in Heaven. [1Corinthians 5:4-5]
*** (1Corinthians 5:1-to-6) It is Actually reported that sexual immorality exists among ‘‘You’’, and of a kind that is not found even among the gentiles. A man is Actually living with his father's wife!
(1Cor 5:2) And “You” are being arrogant instead of being filled with grief and seeing to it that the man who did this is removed from among ‘‘You’’.
(1Cor 5:3) Even though I am away from “You” physically, I am with “You” in spirit. I have already passed judgment on the man who did this, as though I were present with ‘‘You’’.
(1Cor 5:4) When “You” are gathered together in the name of our Lord Jesus and my spirit and the power of our Lord Jesus are present,
(1Cor 5:5) hand this man over to Satan for the destruction of his flesh, so that his spirit may be saved on the Day of the Lord.
(1Cor 5:6) Your boasting is not good. “You” know that a little yeast leavens the whole batch of dough; don't ‘‘You’’?
*** (2Jn 1:7-to-11) For many deceivers have gone out into the world. They refuse to acknowledge Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh. Any such person is a deceiver and an antichrist.
(2Jn 1:8) See to it that “You” don't destroy what we have worked for, but that “You” receive your: full reward.
(2Jn 1:9) Everyone who does Not abide in the teaching of Christ: but goes beyond it; does Not have God. The person who abides in the teaching of Christ has ‘both’ the Father and the Son.
(2Jn 1:10) If anyone comes to “You” and does NOT bring this teaching; do NOT take him into your home or even greet him,
(2Jn 1:11) for the one, who greets him; Shares in his “Evil Deeds”.
“UNITY = at what Cost? – 101”…Blog. [1/2]
By taking these Commands of Scripture… into our “Mind & Actions”: One may NOW see the ‘Cost’ to Follow: Christ Jesus…? No wonder why there is so very much of this “Easy Believe-ism”: that has so “Permeated & Contaminated” the American Church! Hardly ever does one hear about “Church Discipline”…! I believe it is: because too many of the Churches are in “DEBT!” Their “Man Made” Church “PALACES”: have all the latest Media Equipment to stream Video to your “Home & Mobile Devices!” Yet, mostly they are: “Spiritually Bankrupt!” What did Christ Jesus TELL the Religious Elite of His day…? And what do “You” think HE will say to the: American Church of Today…?
*** (Matthew 23:27-to-33) Woe to ‘‘You’’, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For “You” are like whitewashed tombs, which indeed appear beautiful outside, but inside they are full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness.
(Mat 23:28) Even so “You” also appear righteous to men outwardly, but inside “You” are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.
(Mat 23:29) Woe to ‘‘You’’, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! Because “You” build the tombs of the prophets, and decorate the tombs of the righteous,
(Mat 23:30) and say, If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would Not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets.
(Mat 23:31) Therefore “You” are witnesses to yourselves, that “You” are the “Sons” of those who Killed the prophets;
(Mat 23:32) and “You” fill up the ‘Measure’ of your fathers.
(Mat 23:33) Serpents! Offspring of vipers! How can “You” escape the condemnation of ‘Hell?’
*** (Luke 6:26) Woe to you when all men shall speak well of you! For so their fathers did, to the false prophets.
*** (Matthew 10:34-to-40) "Do NOT think that I [Jesus] came to bring Peace on earth. I did Not come to bring Peace: but a Sword!
(Matt 10:35) For I [Jesus] came to turn 'a man against his father; a daughter against her mother; and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law.
(Matt 10:36) A person's enemies will be members of his own family.'
(Matt 10:37) "The one who loves his father or mother more than Me [Jesus] isn't worthy of Me: and the one who loves a son or daughter more than Me: isn't worthy of Me [Jesus].
(Matt 10:38) The one who doesn't take up his cross and follow Me [Jesus]: isn't worthy of Me.
(Matt 10:39) The one who finds his life will lose it; and the one who loses his life because of Me [Jesus]: will find it."
(Matt 10:40) "The one who receives “You” receives Me [Jesus]; and the one who receives Me receives the One [God]: Who sent Me [Jesus].
