Matthew 19:8, “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.”
There are so many marriage meddlers, i.e., people who are “a busybody in other men's matters” (1st Peter 4:15); “busybodies, speaking things which they ought not” (1st Timothy 5:13). So many people are ready to condemn and take sides in a matter that they do not fully understand, nor can they since they were not a part of the marriage. Thus, no one should ever encourage nor recommend a divorce.
Divorce is a sin which the Bible calls “treacherous” in Jeremiah 3:20 (for women) and Malachi 2:16 (for men). It is easy for marriage meddlers to carelessly recommend divorce, because they will not suffer the devastating consequences emotionally, physically and socially that divorce causes.
Notice carefully in Genesis that after the serpent destroyed Adam and Eve's life that it went about its own merry way. And the hypocrites that destroy other people's marriages do the same thing today. Divorce is like layered plywood which cannot be separated without destroying it completely. God hates divorce (Malachi 2:16).
Jeremiah 3:20, “Surely as a wife treacherously departeth from her husband, so have ye dealt treacherously with me, O house of Israel, saith the LORD.”
The Bible commands us not to be a “busybody in other men's matters.” The greatest business in the world is to mind our own business. James 4:12, “There is one lawgiver, who is able to save and to destroy: who art thou that judgest another?” The Bible teaches, Love Thy Neighbor as Thyself. Too many people are more concerned about removing the toothpick from their neighbor's eye, while overlooking the big beam in their own eye. Remember... When we point a finger at someone else, there are 3 fingers pointing back at us. No one has a right to point a finger of condemnation at another sinner, for all have sinned (Romans 3:23). My pastor used to say, “This church will become a great church when we stop saying 'he has sinned' or 'she has sinned' and we start saying 'we have sinned.'”
Anything can be justified in one's own mind. The wicked have (in their own minds) justified the woeful sins of abortion, homosexuality, pornography, casino gambling, divorce, drunkenness, et cetera. Thus, it does not surprise me that wicked men and women today think it is their right to destroy other people's marriages, lives, and happiness. God has spoken clearly on this matter of marriage and divorce... Matthew 19:6, “Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.”
Woe unto those wicked people today who indoctrinate women to divorce. I know a woman who divorced her husband because she was brainwashed in a State-sponsored program that she was 70% likely to become a victim of domestic violence if she returned home. She divorced her husband based on a statistic, a statistic that she has no way of proving. These are the evil things happening today in America. Greedy lawyers and the State-funded groups with whom they work with will TELL A WOMAN ANYTHING just to get her to file for divorce. Because once she files, all of the couple's assets are confiscated by THE SYSTEM, and moreover, the State gains control of the children.
Whereas the wife gets a free lawyer in most cases, the man ends up having to pay tens-of-thousands in legal expenses. What is happening in America today is fascist tyranny. The judges and lawyers are crooked and dishonest, hiding their evils behind an evil system that claims to be just. When they speak of justice, they mean JUST-US!
God's court system isn't rigged. The spiritual wickedness in high places that pardon the elite criminals of this world won't escape the wrath of a holy and angry God. Revelation 21:8 says that all “liars” shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone. That means most lawyers will be in Hell, because lying is their profession.
I'd rather collect stinking garbage for a living making minimum wage, than to be a lying filthy piece of trash lawyer making $300 an hour that bilks people with fearmongering, psychological manipulation, and greed. And the Bible backs that up 100%... Proverb 16:8, “Better is a little with righteousness than great revenues without right.”
Sadly, divorce has become a lucrative industry in America, increasing the wealth of judges, lawyers, bankers, and everybody involved with THE SYSTEM. This is a woeful evil upon our nation, and the number one cause of our youth turning to the Devil. A happy marriage equals a happy home, which equals happy children.
Divorce is a sin often rooted in self-righteous hypocrisy, hatred, and unforgiveness. Jesus taught to forgive 70 times 7 (Matthew 18:22). People usually only get to hear one side of the story, and form erroneous prejudiced conclusions, and then give sinful advice (Psalm 1:1).
God Thinks Different Than Humanity... Very Differently!
After king David commit adultery and murder in the Old Testament, there is no doubt that many people condemned him for the rest of his life. One man despised David so much that he “threw stones at him, and cast dust” (2nd Samuel 16:13). But there is a beautiful Scripture in 1st Kings 15:5, “...David did that which was right in the eyes of the LORD, and turned not aside from any thing that he commanded him all the days of his life, save only in the matter of Uriah the Hittite.”
Whereas many people condemned David for his sins of adultery and murder, summing up his life as a failure; God looked at the entire spectrum of David's life from birth until death. God doesn't judge a believer by a handful of events in life as carnal men do; no, God judges each individual believer (Romans 14:12) “according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad” (2nd Corinthians 5:10). Whereas critics, the newsmedia, enemies, and gossipers only look at the bad in people's lives; God also looks at all the GOOD in one's life and judges accordingly.
Of course, this is only true of the Christian believer, for every Christ-rejecter will be cast into the Lake of Fire for ever(2nd Thessalonians 1:8-9). No good work will be rewarded for the wicked who go to Hell (Ezekiel 18:24); and no sin will be pardoned (Revelation 20:11-15). However, the Christian believer rests in the sweet assurance of the PROMISES of God... “In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began” (Titus 1:2).
“To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins.” —Acts 10:43
