Transcript

  • 1. MaritalSituationsPreaching on Marriage / Divorce / Re-marriage isa difficult topic.Not because the Bible is unclear.Because there are so many variables, so many“what if” circumstances.
  • 2. My preferenceI would rather teach this topic in a class that isopen for discussion.There are too many different scenarios thatmust be considered.We could spend weeks discussing all thepossible situations involved.TODAY – I am just going to cover the verybasics. There are 6 marital situations.
  • 3. 1 – Married and BoundScriptural marriage / Legal marriageMatthew 19:6 So then, they are no longer twobut one flesh. Therefore what God has joinedtogether, let not man separate."Romans 7:1-2 1 Or do you not know, brethren(for I speak to those who know the law), thatthe law has dominion over a man as long as helives? 2 For the woman who has a husband isbound by the law to her husband as long as helives. But if the husband dies, she is releasedfrom the law of her husband.
  • 4. 2 – Unmarried and UnboundSingle, widow, widower“Innocent party” who divorced their spousebecause that spouse committed fornication.The widow, widower and the innocent partyafter a divorce – are free to marry the same asthe single (never married) person.
  • 5. 3 – Unmarried and Bound toAnotherWhen there is a divorce for some cause otherthan fornication - - -They are divorced under the law of the stateBut they are bound under the law of God1 Corinthians 7:10-11 10 Now to the married Icommand, yet not I but the Lord: A wife is not todepart from her husband. 11 But even if shedoes depart, let her remain unmarried or bereconciled to her husband. And a husband isnot to divorce his wife.
  • 6. 4 – Married and Bound to AnotherWhen the divorce is for a cause other thanfornication - - -And have entered another marriage.They are in a legal marriage to the 2ndspouse.They are still bound to the 1stspouse by God.They are living in adultery.NOT: Just an act of sin, but they are in a stateor condition of sin.
  • 7. 5 – Married and UnboundAn innocent 3rdparty who is married to one whohas divorced for a cause other than fornicationMatthew 5:32 But I say to you that whoeverdivorces his wife for any reason except sexualimmorality causes her to commit adultery; andwhoever marries a woman who is divorcedcommits adultery.They have entered into a sinful relationship –but in the law of God they are not bound.
  • 8. 6 – Unmarried and Bound to GodWhen one is put away because of theirfornication:When one is divorced for any other cause:They are not free to marry anotherBUT they are able to repent, live for God,continue to be faithful to the church and liveeternally in heaven
  • 9. The BasicsIn this lesson we covered the basicsThere are still many “what if” situations thatneed to be consideredI realize that there are many othercircumstances that need personal discussionThe BASIC RULE – Marriage is one man andone woman for life. This was Gods intent fromcreation.
