Re: Divorce and remarriage

Just about every catholic I have ever discussed doctrine has stated that in one form or another.

Holy Tradition, Magisterium, and Ecumenical Councils decide doctrine per the RCC, individuals...

Re: Divorce and remarriage

Who are you talking to? I've stated my position clearly on this (or was it the other?) thread: Nobody on AFF has a fully Biblical doctrine concerning divorce and remarriage, every side fails to take...

Mine weren't either. But I guess we will have to wait. And wait. And wait. Etc.

Re: The Chinese Rullet

Nobody knows where it's gonna land.

Which means either we would have no idea where an incoming ICBM would land, or our gov't is lying to us yet again.

Re: Divorce and remarriage

It is not. But due to your lack of time available to discuss things as you previously mentioned, I guess we'll not be able to .... discuss it. :thumbsup

Re: Divorce and remarriage

I thought you didn't have time? Lol

I misrepresented nothing. You even acknowledged what I said was correct.

I certainly haven't underestimated your intellectual abilities. I have however...

Re: The OT saints apparent disadvantage

I'm not a dispensationalist, so my use of the term was more generic, equivalent to "various times". I probably should have been more clear.

Small matter in the context of the thread, but just...

Re: Divorce and remarriage

Which is my point. You made a statement about "(his) system" being inadequate to deal with the realities of people's situations. I don't see how the EO system is any more adequate. In fact, it seems...

Re: Divorce and remarriage

My point was that if you are EO then him quoting Scripture isn't going to mean anything.

Re: The OT saints apparent disadvantage

You're welcome. The other apocryphal books are, in my opinion, basically just "interesting jewish religious literature of the first century", and not nearly as important as those previously mentioned...

Re: Divorce and remarriage

If a woman divorces and remarries, so that her marriage is no marriage but adultery, and then becomes a Christian, is her adultery now sanctified as holy matrimony?

Re: Divorce and remarriage

The blood washes away the marriage bond? Wouldn't that imply every person who converts has their marriage dissolved?

Re: Divorce and remarriage

A few questions if I may?

1. By new wife do you mean his new wife?

2. If he remarries, and it is adultery, then his previous marriage must still be valid. Is his former wife required to remain...

Re: Divorce and remarriage

The Orthodox faith and praxis is based on Canon Law and Holy Tradition, not "Scripture only". The Church interprets and applies Scripture. Scripture is not the final authority. Therefore, demanding...

Re: Divorce and remarriage

According to the Orthodox system:

1. No marriage or remarriage can occur except as officiated and blessed by a church official (bishop).

2. Divorce is a sin, but pardonable by the Church on...

Re: The OT saints apparent disadvantage

1st Maccabees, 2nd Maccabees, for some historical continuity.

Then Wisdom, and Ecclesiasticus, for some familiarity with the background ideas that are subtly referenced throughout the NT.

Re: The OT saints apparent disadvantage

That's one reason I recommend people to be familiar with the Apocrypha, they provide a better understanding of the NT conditions.
