Christians and Divorce

Question: Are Christians allowed to divorce?

Answer: What does the Bible say? The Bible is the ultimate authority.

God told Moses to allow the Israelites to divorce. (Deuteronomy 24) God is logical, He would not allow or give permission to something that is unforgivable.  CCI10112017_0002

In the Sermon on the Mount, (Matthew 5) Jesus is teaching revolutionary ideas. Different than the Law of Moses which says don’t commit murder, it is a sin. But Jesus says to just think about murdering a person is a sin. Same with committing adultery, just thinking about it is a sin. Why? Because there is a better way, the new law is to love unconditionally. John 13:34-35. So according to the Law of Moses if you want to divorce go ahead, but Jesus says there is a better way, the law of unconditional love. Jesus went on to say, “but I say to you that everyone who divorces his wife, except for the reason of unchastity, makes her commit adultery; and whoever marries a divorced woman commits adultery.” (Verse 32) So if one spouse commits adultery the other one is free to divorce and remarry.

Divorce is not a “better way”, but it happens a lot. As Christians we should be non-judgmental, kind, and encouraging of people that are going through it or have gone through it. theend

Hi, my name is Naomi, I am a Christian, certified aromatherapist. I also have an Associate Degree in Bible. I looked for books about aromatherapy from a Christian point of view and didn't find any, so I wrote one, The Aromatherapy Advocate. An introductory book for Christians on aromatherapy. I have one son whom I home schooled. I started using essential oils 10 years ago. I love the fragrances and I love the powerful benefits of using essential oils. I received my certificate about 10 years ago and have been teaching and writing about aromatherapy from a Christian perspective since then.
