Divorce Is Not The End

By Adrian Rogers

Divorce is not the unpardonable sin, though some people think it is, and unfortunately, some churches act like it is. Divorce is also not a dead-end street. I think there are legitimate situations in which a person can remarry.

If you’ve been divorced; you are not a second-class citizen. There’s something called the grace of God. Forgiveness is always available. Here’s what the Bible says:

There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. (Romans 8:1)

But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanseth us from all sin. (1 John 1:7)

Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. (Isaiah 1:18)

Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. (1 Corinthians 5:17)

If you are in Christ Jesus, you are a new creature. Marriages that are made in heaven and marred by hell are marked by hope. And He is the God of grace and the God of forgiveness.

  1. Oh, God’s grace! Some sins are more obvious, some are kept well-hidden. But sin is sin (James 2.10), and God looks on the heart. No person is in any position to judge another. God commands us to love one another, and He does not give exceptions. So many people have been hurt by shunning for obvious sins, or what is construed as obvious sin (divorce, children out of wedlock, etc.), but those who shun do not see their own sin (James 4.17 Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.). Thank you for sharing this reminder that, whether our sins are obvious or not, God’s love is greater, and He shares that love through His people. We are responsible to believe and obey Him.

  2. Mathew 19:5,6 Romans 7:2,3 1Corinthians 7:10,11
    Luke 18:18 Mark 10:12

  3. Eternal life or temporary life?
    You choose.

Luke 21:36 "Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man."
