May I Divorce My Wife and Remain Unmarried?

"A Christian couple recently separated. The husband claims (to use his expression) that he has 'fallen out of love' with his wife. He says he has no interest in another companion, he simply wants to live the solitary life that he enjoyed before his marriage. Accordingly, he has decided to obtain a divorce. Since he has no intention of remarrying, ... read more »

Did David Sin against God Only?

"In Psalm 51, it appears that David is praying for forgiveness after having committed fornication with Bathsheba (as indicated in the superscription). How then could he have said to God, 'Against thee, thee only, have I sinned' (v. 4)?" The solution to this problem is to be found in the sense in which Israel's great king is using the language. ... read more »

Hosea 3:5 – “David’s” Reign in the Latter Days

Every Old Testament book, to some extent, focuses upon the coming of Christ. This is no less true of the book of Hosea. Hosea was a prophet of God who spoke to the northern kingdom of Israel during the reign of Jeroboam II. His personal life was marred by tragedy in that his wife became unfaithful. But in spite of ... read more »

Are You Homophobic?

"We need to be tolerant of other people, especially those of a different sexual orientation," so goes the common saying. The homosexual agenda is everywhere. Those who preach "tolerance" are not tolerant of you, if you disagree with them. That's what Elliot Chambers learned when he wore a sweatshirt to Woodbury High with the words, "Straight Pride." The next day, ... read more »

The Plague of Perversion

One of the most potentially devastating movements to evolve from the environment of human degeneracy in recent decades is the so-called "Gay Movement." The homosexual "lifestyle," with considerable support from the entertainment industry, and significant publicity from the news media, is a growing phenomenon. No longer content to practice their perversion behind closed doors, homosexuals have moved into the mainstream ... read more »

Are Contraception and Abortion Siamese Twins?

I have the greatest respect for Dr. Paul Marx, founder of Human Life International. He has produced much good material which argues for the sanctity of human life and exposes the evil of infanticide (via abortion) and euthanasia. But the gentleman exceeds appropriate bounds when he argues that "widespread contraception always leads to abortion" (1999, 9), though he concedes this ... read more »

Marriage: As Designed by God

The institution of marriage involves a covenant between a man, a woman, and God. Man and woman, by mutual consent, enter the arrangement. But the procedure, in order to be valid, must be consistent with divine law. The Origin of Marriage According to anthropologists, there is no society wherein marriage does not exist in some format (Montague, p. 240). The ... read more »

The Devastating Effects of Divorce

Through the prophet Malachi, Jehovah God said to ancient Israel: "I hate divorce" (2:16, NASB). The Lord hates divorce because he loves people and divorce is devastating to humankind. Man did not live one day upon this earth apart from the environment of a home. In fact, the very foundation of society is the home. Marriage is that divine union ... read more »

Are the Gospels a Part of the New Testament?

Jesus Christ taught that a person who divorces his or her marital companion and then marries another is living in a state of adultery-unless the divorce was initiated by an innocent victim whose trust had been violated by the sin of fornication (see Mt. 19:9; cf. 5:32). The implication of this statement, of course, is this. The innocent victim does ... read more »

Is a “Loveless Marriage” Scriptural Grounds for Divorce?

"There is no spiritual law that demands you stay in your loveless marriage," wrote "Reverend" Norman L. Conaway. He prefaced his remarks by saying, "I am a spiritual advisor." Mr. Conaway was responding to a woman whose depressing circumstance was shared with "Dear Abby," and published in newspapers nationwide ("Dear Abby," The Record, Stockton, Ca. November 12, 2002). This lady, ... read more »
