This conversation will be primarily about what the bible says about adultery and divorce. I know in today’s world, sometimes it’s somehow justified and accepted by some, but is it meant to be that way? Let me first start off say that God HATES a divorce. He states that very clearly in the bible.Feel free to visit their website at explained here for more details
Now, let’s look at Moses’ time period and what he had to say about it. In Leviticus he not only addresses adultery between a husband and wife, he addresses just about every kind of sexual relationship know to man, all bad in the eyes of God with the exception of the bond between husband and wife. Now, most, if not all, consequences for these actions at that time was death by stoning. Moses did give men the ability to give their wives a “certificate of divorce”, even though it may have not been caused by adultery itself, as Jesus later referred to it as men having hardheartedness for their wives at the time.
Later, when Jesus was on the earth, it was stated by him in the first four books of the New Testament that “you must not commit adultery” and he added in the book of Matthew “anyone who keeps on looking at a woman as to have passion for her has committed adultery with her in his heart”. He then goes on later to say “However, I say to you that everyone divorcing his wife, except on account of fornication, makes her a subject for adultery, and whoever marries a divorced woman commits adultery”.
These are just a couple of instances mentioned in the bible. There are many more and they all say pretty much the same thing. Be careful not to fall into modern mans’ trap of thinking it’s acceptable to God, because it’s not. Besides, I don’t think we’re going to change God’s mind anytime in the near future.
