    Musician4God1611 got a reaction from HappyChristian in Purposing My Mouth   
    A problem I find                                        For from the abundance                               But it is not my desire,                               For my heart leads my mouth;
    As I go through my life;                           Of the heart doth it speak:                            So what is it then?                                      In God's Word we can see it.
    My mouth is the cause                            The murmurings, disputings,                       What would thus cause me                       Yet my heart is not led,
    Of an abundance of strife.                      Criticizing the weak.                                      To commit such a sin?                              As it should, by my spirit.
    My tongue is a fire                                   It is a sobering thought;                                The source of my trouble,                          For my spirit must be purposed
    Of untamable heat;                                  A harsh litigation.                                           As I ponder withal,                                       To be kind, good, and meek.
    I use it for boasting,                                 Is it true I am thus,                                         Is that my words in their courses              Then from my spirit to my heart,
    for slander, and deceit.                            An incompetent Christian?                          Have no purpose at all.                                Only then should I speak.
    And yet, I must know,                               Do I set in my heart                                       For would I purpose my mouth
    As I look at this sin,                                  To do what is wrong?                                    That it would not transgress,
    The problem itself                                    To ruin the weak,                                            I would find it less frequent,
    Must come from within.                          And to weaken the strong?                          This terrible mess.

    That's perfect,
    There is no music like unto music sung. For the words of music is the essence of music and carries it's true meaning and purpose.

    Musician4God1611 got a reaction from DaveW in The Husband of One Wife   
    I think that maybe I didn't make myself clear enough. I'm not saying that divorce doesn't matter, I'm saying that divorce doesn't make you the husband of more than one wife in anyone's eyes, remarriage does. Let me give you an example: A man gets married and divorced when he is lost, but he doesn't get remarried. He gets saved and says he's called to Pastor. He isn't the husband of more than one wife, because he never remarried. Now whether that divorce disqualifies him or not is a totally different subject, but he isn't the husband of more than one wife.

    I normally don't get involved in these, simply because it ends up being a slapping match between opposing thoughts, however, I will offer a few gentle points.
    (And I am unlikely to "defend" them or enter into discussion about them.)
    Matthew 5:31-32
    (31)  It hath been said, Whosoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorcement:
    (32)  But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery.

    The Law is vs 31, the Lord's restating is vs 32 - note that in this brief saying it is plain that there is only one ground for divorce, and the divorced "WOMAN" is an adulterer if she remarries. Note also that the woman is an adulterer if she remarries EVEN IF the divorce fits under the "saving for the cause" phrase.
    I might be inferred from this that it applies equally to men, but that is an assumption. the reader will decide if it is a reasonable assumption.
    Matthew 19:3-9
    (3)  The Pharisees also came unto him, tempting him, and saying unto him, Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife for every cause?
    (4)  And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female,
    (5)  And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh?
    (6)  Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.
    (7)  They say unto him, Why did Moses then command to give a writing of divorcement, and to put her away?
    (8)  He saith unto them, Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not so.
    (9)  And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery.
     
    I will note regarding this passage that the Lord first states the plan for marriage, and concludes that in vs 6, stating quite clearly that "what therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder."
    He then finishes His statement. This is God's plan for marriage in its entirety - it should not be broken. Argue all you like against it, but that is what it says. 
    The Pharisees then press Him further with regard to the idea that Moses commanded divorce. Note here that Jesus specifically uses the term "suffered" in this instance, NOT commanded, but probably the MOST IMPORTANT PART OF THIS PASSAGE is that it was "suffered" for the hardness of their hearts. If a man is willing to admit that he has hardened his heart against God, then divorce is allowed, BUT EVEN THEN under specific circumstances: fornication.
    This is a repeat of the previous, however this time is DOES INDEED refer to the man as an adulterer if he then remarries, except for fornication.
    (A side note: In my studies I have not found a place where God COMMANDED divorce. Look carefully before throwing up suggestions. I could be wrong, but so far.....)
    1 Corinthians 7:10-16
    (10)  And unto the married I command, yet not I, but the Lord, Let not the wife depart from her husband:
    (11)  But and if she depart, let her remain unmarried, or be reconciled to her husband: and let not the husband put away his wife.
    (12)  But to the rest speak I, not the Lord: If any brother hath a wife that believeth not, and she be pleased to dwell with him, let him not put her away.
    (13)  And the woman which hath an husband that believeth not, and if he be pleased to dwell with her, let her not leave him.
    (14)  For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband: else were your children unclean; but now are they holy.
    (15)  But if the unbelieving depart, let him depart. A brother or a sister is not under bondage in such cases: but God hath called us to peace.
    (16)  For what knowest thou, O wife, whether thou shalt save thy husband? or how knowest thou, O man, whether thou shalt save thy wife?
    A wife shouldn't divorce her husband - if she does, she should not remarry. Again, it does not specifically list the converse (husband leaving wife) - the reader will have to consider whether it is reasonable to apply it to husbands as well.
    A saved man married to an unsaved woman, shall not divorce his wife. 
    A saved woman married to an unsaved man, shall not divorce her husband.
    BUT IF THE UNBELIEVER wants a divorce, then let him (or her) - the saved one "is not under bondage in such cases".
     
    Now then, to the Question at hand:
    Aside from the matter of fornication, and that allowed (NOT commanded), if a man divorces his wife for any reason, it is not a valid divorce in God's eyes. He clearly stated "what therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder."
    Therefore, according to the statement of God, that man IS STILL MARRIED, for it is not a legitimate divorce. In my reading, the "exception clause" was given for those who were hard hearted, and such a man (if still hard hearted) is not really qualified anyway.
    The ONLY case where it clearly sets this aside is where a believer has no part in the divorce other than to let it happen.
    This is the only place where we see it CLEARLY stated that he is not under bondage.
    In light of these, the "husband of one wife" statement is not so much about how that phrase is understood, as it is about whether it is a legitimate divorce in God's eyes.
    If it is not, and the man has divorced wrongly, and then remarried, in God's eyes he has two wives, and is therefore ineligible.

    How about II Corinthians 6:17-18:
    "Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,
    And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty." 
    A promise that not only will he receive us and be a Father to us, but also a promise that we can be separate, we can touch not the unclean thing, we do have victory over the power of sin.

    Musician4God1611 got a reaction from swathdiver in Why is Steven Anderson hated?   
    I don't usually get in the conversations about Steve Anderson, mostly because I find them fruitless, but I decided I would put in my two cents.
    First, I don't have a lot of respect for a pastor that spends all his time screaming and yelling about the sins of America and very little time preaching on the sins in his church. I have no problem saying that homosexuality is a wicked, perverted, abominable sin and God will judge Sodomites. We all know the world is sinful, that shouldn't be a surprise. But the purpose of the pastor is for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ (Eph. 4:12). Deal with your church's sins, deal with your church's problems, deal with your church's attitudes, deal with your church's walk with God.
    Second, why doesn't Anderson talk about the other sins that God said were worthy of death, like cursing one's parents, or adultery, or not taking care of the problem of your ox pushing with its horns? Why only homosexuality? Aren't we supposed to preach the whole counsel of God? God said that the proud look and the lying tongue are an abomination to him. If I've cursed my parents and lied, can I still be saved?
    Just some thoughts.

    Musician4God1611 got a reaction from 1Timothy115 in Quotations of Past and present Saints   
    “Beware of manufacturing a God of your own: a God who is all mercy, but not just; a God who is all love, but not holy; a God who has a heaven for every body, but a hell for none; a God who can allow good and bad to be side by side in time, but will make no distinction between good and bad in eternity. Such a God is an idol of your own, as truly an idol as any snake or crocodile in an Egyptian temple. The hands of your own fancy and sentimentality have made him. He is not the God of the Bible, and beside the God of the Bible there is no God at all.”                                    - J. C. Ryle
