Luke 16:18 Anyone who divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultery, and he who marries a divorced woman commits adultery.

Anyone who divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultery, and he who marries a divorced woman commits adultery. THE HOLY BIBLE!

Hokey religions have no place in the 21st century. We should be past all this nonsense by now, instead of shaming people in to staying in loveless marriages.
DeluxedEdition · 22-25, F
@HeidiA where does it shame? Why are you twisting the rhetoric to fit your own agenda?1
HeidiA · 41-45, F
@DeluxedEdition [quote]where does it shame?[/quote]

Calling people who divorce adulterous. That’s the shaming. It didn’t take any twisting. It’s all up there in black and white.
Carazaa · F
@HeidiA That is Gods word, not mine. I will do what it says. You don't have to. I prefer to be blessed by God in my life. Kids are not doing good in the world, many have no fathers in their lives, and are even molested by their step fathers and beaten or killed by their step fathers. Young boys are lost and depressed, and soon there might be a crisis in childrens lives, because they have no families, they get depressed, don't work hard, nor have faith in marriage institution, and they just want to "shack up", some join gangs, and become violent, and criminals. Kids need their Dads!!

So here's where I really struggle with this. I have a friend who met his future wife in their twenties. She had been married before, but then the guy turned verbally and physically abusive. This is a side he had not shown until AFTER they married. She wisely got out and got divorced, and cut all ties with him. Later she married my friend. Almost thirty years later, they're still happily married and have two beautiful grown daughters, both of whom are now in healthcare and will make the world a better place. I just can't imagine that God would have wanted her to stay with someone who hid their true self from her and turned out to be a literal monster, and I also have a really hard time believing that He would want her to stay single for life (unless he died) because he had deceived her.

@NotJamieM Being single is not a curse, it is a blessing!
And those who live together unhappily commit treason against love. Found in the book of life experiences.

@RobinPhoenix I think we can learn to love not hate!
AveMaria · 31-35, M
@Carazaa We can learn both.
If we learn violence, we mimic violence:

Love is reciprocal, if one is loved it's natural and easy to love them back:

Considering the US divorce statistics, I’d say the Bible Belt isn’t as godly as it likes to tell people.
Carazaa · F
@WintaTheAngle Very true. The test if we are following Jesus is if we are obedient to his word, or if we do whatever we want.
Elessar · 26-30, M
Ok, feel free to stay married to someone who don't love you if you want.

The rest of us who'd use Luke 16:18 at most for wiping our godly rear will be able to choose - free from any religious obligation coming from religions that don't interest us - what to do in such scenario.
Carazaa · F
@Elessar Suite yourself then, not God! There is a price for that though.
Ceinwyn · 22-25, F
So if your husband beats you or sleeps around, you wouldn’t divorce him?
@AveMaria @Carazaa What I'm hearing is that you two don't believe a woman deserves to be happy if she happens to get trapped in a bad marriage, and you don't think she deserves to know what a good romantic relationship feels like.
Carazaa · F
@ShadowfireTheSarcastic She can be happy if she has high standards and picks carefully and puts Jesus before her mate. We are to love God more than anything.
AveMaria · 31-35, M
@ShadowfireTheSarcastic I believe women can't be happy if they are used.
If a man loves a woman, the last thing he will want is to separate from her, he'd die just to be next to her.
Separation doesn't bring joy:
"The Lord God said, “It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper as his partner.”" Genesis 2, 18

Of course this doesn’t apply to Donal J trumpsie. 😊
Carazaa · F
@monte3 Nothing applies to him. He doesn't follow the Bible he just holds it up for picture day 😘
kodiac · 22-25, M
I have 2 words for this .catholic church. Probably the most popular religion and without a doubt the most corrupt and evil organization on earth .
Carazaa · F
@kodiac It wasn't the catholic church, it was God who instituded marriage!
AveMaria · 31-35, M
@Carazaa "Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her" Ephesians 5, 25
Carazaa · F
@AveMaria so beautiful, thank you!
rrraksamam · 31-35, M
In the modern world, marriage is a mistake
Carazaa · F
@rrraksamam The reason I am so sure to trust in God is because I have tested him and he is very good with his promises. He really comes through for us when we love him.
rrraksamam · 31-35, M
@Carazaa He didn't come through for me
AveMaria · 31-35, M
@RebelHeart When people are hurt they understand other's pain.
This is why there are so many wars and so much suffering, it's because if we were all suffering we would understand each other's pain and help each other.
To do that we must praise God for He helps everyone, then we can have peace.

The Promises of the Sacred Heart of Jesus to St. Margaret Mary
(1) "I will give them all the graces necessary in their state of life.
(2) I will establish peace in their homes.
(3) I will comfort them in all their afflictions.
(4) I will be their secure refuge during life, and above all, in death.
(5) I will bestow abundant blessings upon all their undertakings.
(6) Sinners will find in my Heart the source and infinite ocean of mercy.
(7) Lukewarm souls shall become fervent.
(8) Fervent souls shall quickly mount to high perfection.
(9) I will bless every place in which an image of my Heart is exposed and honored.
10) I will give to priests the gift of touching the most hardened hearts.
(11) Those who shall promote this devotion shall have their names written in my Heart.
(12) I promise you in the excessive mercy of my Heart that my all-powerful love will grant to all those who receive Holy Communion on the First Fridays in nine consecutive months the grace of final perseverance; they shall not die in my disgrace, nor without receiving their sacraments. My divine Heart shall be their safe refuge in this last moment."

All this post does is prove why Murica is so fucked up, and why an alarming number of its citizens are incapable of rational thought.
BTW, the next phase of God's wrath, fire, is actually pretty likely. But that's not because some of you gun-toting Evangelists porked the cleaner, it's because you're all in denial about your love affair with unnecessarily powerful cars. What's that? Climate change? Oh yeah, that's what the scientists said, and their work also casts doubt on the Bible, so they are just the Devil's agents, too. We can ignore them.
Carazaa · F
@Philth I am not for guns. Most mass killers have been law abiding citisens until they snapped. And I am not for cars either, I am for electric mass transit. and I think if we need to stop with fossil fuels, and pick up our trash and reuse, not buy new and trash the old, and stop buying plastic, and eat less meat, yep. But most of all follow Jesus. God says we can win a husband without a word by our Godly behavior.
Millerdog · 56-60, M
Taking these things literary are why so many people trash the bible 🙄
Carazaa · F
@Millerdog Yes, and taking God seriously will be a test if you are following Christ or yourself. I for one will be obedient to the Bible. And my life is good!
Iwillwait · M
It's hard to read, but it's true.

I have not remarried, but I'm guilty all the same. 😞
@Carazaa I wouldn't trust a previously abusive partner, and I don't see the point of punishing women for being trapped in bad marriages.
Carazaa · F
@ShadowfireTheSarcastic He is renting from me, not my husband now.
Carazaa · F
@ShadowfireTheSarcastic I have rules!
Interesting. What do you think of woman who divorces her husband and then is in a relationship with someone for about a year then gets back with her husband. Also when I was young i used to read a word called 'Animal husbandry' and that had nothing to do with man, woman or marriage. 😝
Carazaa · F
@littlepuppywantanewlife Marriage if for childrens protection, an economic contract, and a love contract under God. We are to get back withour husband if at all possible. The econmic devastation for kids after divorce last a few generations. It is ok to stay with a mate for the kids.
@Carazaa That's what many people do. Even if it's a bad and abusive marriage some woman has to stick with the husband for kids and society. But now things are not like that. Marriage sounds like a pressure to anyone if there is no love. People divorce after marriage due circumstances like bad in laws, misbehaving husband/wife , no love from husband/wife, a cheater or crook, financial situations etc.
Carazaa · F
@littlepuppywantanewlife I know, people have forgotten Gods rules. We should have one sexual partner, our mate, then there is less divorce.
Okay, so don't marry a divorced person.

I dont disagree, the issue is unfaithful women.
Carazaa · F
@checkoutanytime That too!
Penny · F
so what constitutes "holy matrimony"? getting married to someone random in a church because you have the hots for them? what about civil "marriages" like not in a church. do those count?
Carazaa · F
@ShadowfireTheSarcastic Stop it or I'll vote for Trump 😂
@Carazaa I know that's an empty threat. There's no way you would compromise the entire country just because I'm misbehaving, lol.
Carazaa · F
@ShadowfireTheSarcastic You know me too well I guess, but that is the worst thing a person can ever do, if he is not in prison ofcourse where he'll be soon, probably.

I've got two words for all Christian and 'pretend' churches - they are FUCK and OFF!

We need freedom from religion not freedom of religion.
