  1. A while ago I read in my Bible something like "the children of israel wanderings are like a parallel to the christian walk" but now I cannot remember where it is or find it . I don't even know if I got the right idea from the verse and wanted to read it again but can't find it . Does anyone know what I'm talking about?
  2. so I read this a couple of days ago and it upset me so much that i decided to wait until I cooled off to reply. lol 1 corinthains 7 is speaking of pauls opinion of what virgins should do it is speaking of a married or divorced person when it says it is ok to marry Jesus says in 3 of the Gospels that for a divorced person to remarry is adultery. do you think paul is saying it is not a sin to commit adultery? that is ridiculous God also knows that we will lie, steal ,and maybe even murder. but a Christians are not to do those thing cause Christ commanded us not to 1 john 2 says And hereby do we know that we know him, if we keep his commandments He that saith I know Him and keepeth not his commandments is a liar and the truth is not in him. question; is it a sin to commit adultery? i know that God can(and will) forgive but Hebrews says For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,
  3. do you believe that murder is acceptably? they are together in James 2 all can be forgiven but does that make it right or acceptable?
  4. i am trying my best to look at the subject through the light of the Bible. i am not trying to knock you so please don't take offense but when you got remarried what did you think Luke 16;18(and other accounts of this in the Gospels) meant? notice it does not say husband of one wife at a time. also as you said "We believers just tend to look at things and make assumptions based on what is written" we don't know if the woman at the well divorced those 5 husbands or they died.in any case does Jesus ever condone divorce or remarriage?
  5. ok im back (1) 1 Corinthians 7:11 But and if she depart, let her remain unmarried, or be reconciled to her husband:anyone can have forgiveness, but you tell me can one be a follower of Christ and not follow Christ? (2) maybe I should say it this way "when I was living in sin I could not enjoy Gods fellowship" (3)no one will be denied salvation. murderers will not be denied salvation, but murders must repent(if you get my drift)
  6. I believe that every sin you commit that the Holy Spirit convicts you of and you do not repent is a sin unto death. any one can enjoy fellowship with God but if one does not repent (turn away) from there sin they will not enjoy Gods fellowship
  7. i am not sure i understand what you are saying but i would like to add that i am not really trying to discuss divorce (even though i believe in most cases it is a sin) but rather remarriage (which seems so clear to me but so many disagree i am trying to find out why)
  8. mathew 5 and mark 10 under the law?? you have me very confused there 31 It hath been said, Whosoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorcement:(mosaic law) 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. should we continue in sin that grace may abound? God forbid verse 25 says "Now concerning virgins I have no commandment of the Lord; yet i give my judgement, as one who has OBtained mercy of the Lord to be faithful" pauls opinion all the way to verse 40 is the way I always understood it
  9. I will disagree lol. as far as being fixated on this subject i guess you could say i have a one track mind. i have seen this subject among the church and was wondering what peoples reasons were for not preaching against remarriage. before I became a member and asked this question i read many of the other topics on here.
  10. I would have to disagree with your view here. If a gay couple would ask to join your church no doubt you would say that they were not living right even though they have a marriage licences you would expect them to change. why do you not expect those with somebody else's spouse to do the same ?
  11. in verse 25 it says" concerning virgins" so personally I dont believe it is talking about second marriage . How do you say there is no sin in remarrying when you read mathew 5 and mark 10
  12. just throwing this out there not saying for sure this is right: but I have heard it taught that when you make a vow before God and to your spouse to be married for life then God sees that for life and He sees you as still married to you (first) wife even though you have a paper that claims diferently. Do you believe that in Gods eyes you are still married?
  13. so you believe that remarriage is not right (committing adultery). is not living with your second spouse living in adultery? should we continue in sin that grace may abound? God forbid.
  14. I am assuming that you condone remarriage because of Gods grace. let me take it a step farther should a christian continue to remain married to his/her second spouse while there first one is alive?
  15. (this may not be on the correct sub forum but i could not find any better one.) I was wondering what most IFB believed when it came to the issue of divorce and remarriage. I understand that there are hundreds of "circumstances" but it seems to me that the Bible makes it all very clear. However many of the baptist that i know like to ignore it. so how do you all on this forum beleive what do you think mark 10 and the others mean thanks for all the input
