Malachi 2:16 “For the man who does not love his wife but divorces her, says the Lord, the God of Israel, covers his garment with violence, says the Lord of hosts. So guard yourselves in your spirit, and do not be faithless.”
Numbers 30:2 If a man vows a vow to the Lord, or swears an oath to bind himself by a pledge, he shall not break his word. He shall do according to all that proceeds out of his mouth. Ecclesiastes 5:4 When you vow a vow to God, do not delay paying it, for he has no pleasure in fools. Pay what you vow :
"I, ___, take thee, ___, to be my wedded husband/wife, to have and to hold, from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, till death do us part, according to God’s holy law;in the presence of God I make this vow.
Luke 16:18 “Everyone who divorces his wife and marries another commits adultery, and he who marries a woman divorced from her husband commits adultery. 1 Corinthians 7:2
Matthew 19:6 So they are no longer two but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate.”
So that they are no more two, but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, don't let man tear apart."
I appreciate your posting this and you are correct.
Correct enough that I added to your manna... however, Chosenone is also correct and that must be considered
heavily when this subject crops up.
But I have to ask the following of you.
What is to be done when a husband literally pushes a pregnant woman down the stairs?
What is to be done when a husband physically beats his wife to the point of her having bruises so bad that she had
to lie about what happened to those who say her and them?
(These actually happened to 2 of my friends)
What is to be done when a man severely beats his children?
What is to be done when you find out the man you married has actually been a murderer?
What is to be done when a man will not provide enough or support his family because all he does is spend money
on gambling and end up filing for bankruptcy, and he refuses to change?
What is to be done when he is so hooked on drugs and alcohol and again refuses to do anything about that?
(That happened to my aunt. The embarrassment the man caused was unreal)
What is to be done when a man just up and abandons a woman?
What happens when a man steals from you and your family, and fakes a robbery in your house to take jewelry and money to finance his lifestyle, away from her... while letting the insurance company handle things?
(That happened to a cousin of mine)
What happens when a wife (bipolar) causes a husband to be arrested and taken to jail under the claim that he beat
his children unmercifully and had the youngest boy tell the police that was true that his dad beat him.... when in fact the husband never even spanked the kids for correction?
(This was my cousin)
What would you do sajang?
Yes the Holy Bible is the inerrant word of God.
But God does not address these travesties in His book. At least not in the limited portion that the church uses for Canon.
So.... I ask again... what would you do? Stay married because you have been joined as one to continue to get the abuse?
If you say yes to this, then ask yourself what loving God would want you to suffer such torments?
FYI: My 2 friends never re-married. My aunt and one cousin also never remarried. My male cousin did re-marry, but then again... he is a man, enough said.)
