Re: Divorce and remarriage

We also have a messed up society, with messed up situations, that have to be dealt with. The ideal often isn't experienced by people. So as the church we have to navigate things carefully without...

Re: Did Anyone Vote Harder Today?

Meanwhile, how many Americans have a clue about what's happening in Brazil, and how it relates? Very few, I suspect.

Re: Divorce and remarriage

Yes, the "above reproach" would include not being in "infamia", or even an illegal bigamist, or one of the Jewish sectarians who practiced polygamy. All of those would bring reproach to the overseer...

Re: Divorce and remarriage

Christian authors have been divided on the subject for as long as post-apostolic Christian writings on the subject have existed.

Re: Divorce and remarriage
