Having said all of that about marriage, I want to say to those who have been divorced, that you are still an important part of the church and God loves you no less than the others, as we are all forgiven sinners. Hold your heads high and continue in the faith!

Amen. All have fall short in the eyes of the Lord.

I wish all could get that feeling from making a good confession, when through a priest, God forgives us from our sins. It is an amazing feeling.

Even the Pope sins, and I know Benedict went to confession weekly.

Me too. Same wife of 40 years. She has moderate dementia and I am dealing with cancer. I am not worried about my cancer except praying the Lord will let me stay long enough to take care of my wife, even though she will not even know me in the future.

But suffering should make you closer to God. It has me.

I had 2 near death experiences in the last few years and it kind of woke me up that I was "hoarding" the love of my faith.

These two things and the creation of the year of the New Evangeization started me on doing some apologetics.

Are you saying that our sins cannot be forgiven unless we make confession before an earthly catholic authorized priest?

Also since marriage is at the moment that two become one flesh, arn't the marraige covenant violated at the moment that someone is unfaithful even in thought? Since if a man or woman looks on another with lust in their hearts they have commited adultery?
And if someone has sexual relations with another before "marriage" are they not actually already married given the fact that marriage is not a spoken set of words but when two become one flesh?
Are you affirming that Judah & Tamar were married?
Ge 38:24 And it came to pass about three months after, that it was told Judah, saying, Tamar thy daughter in law hath played the harlot; and also, behold, she is with child by whoredom. And Judah said, Bring her forth, and let her be burnt.
25 When she was brought forth, she sent to her father in law, saying, By the man, whose these are, am I with child: and she said, Discern, I pray thee, whose are these, the signet, and bracelets, and staff.
26 And Judah acknowledged them, and said, She hath been more righteous than I; because that I gave her not to Shelah my son. And he knew her again no more.

I agree that adultery is as much a mental sin as a physical one. Disagree that having sex before marriage makes two people married. It is a violation of God's standards for sex but does not constitute a marriage. Sex should be reserved for marriage, not had outside of the marriage bond-and sex does not create that bond.

Get married. Don't let anyone tell you it's a sin if you're divorced. God forgives all our sins. If that's not true then Jesus died for nothing. If it is settled between you and God that is all that is needed.

Don't listen to these CoC people. Not the Johnny/James/Mark type. If they don't believe in Christ's atonement for all then they don't know what to believe about CHrist.

You know what I like about this message? It reveals that we are all in the same boat. Why don't we all start loving others and give God the credit for great things he is doing in our lives. I pray that God will protect you and your wife and finish the work he has begun in you.

John 15:12 This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.

Never noticed this from this passage but think it is a clear statement of what a person who understands they are in an audulterous situation should do. Look a the last part of verse 26 and what Judah did when he acknowledged he had been wrong. HE Knew her again NO MORE.
