just because man takes freedom to the level of concubines and prostitutes does not mean GOD approves of the behaviour.while history reveals a certain lifestyle d our lordoes not mean GOD ENDORSED IT.GOD tolerated mans bad behaviour while it was a stink in his nostril.

The church of GOD of prophecy is not the blame here. the church abides by the word of GOD and holds true to the teachings of CHRIST.why blame many for a few?

The Bible says that if you do get a divorce to remain unmarried or be reconciled to your husband or wife. That iis plain enough for a 5 year old.!!!!

I do not believe that god wants a person to be unhappy, if a marriage is bad then I think god would want you to get out of it. I also so believe that it is between god and that person, I know what the bible says,but god is a forgiveing god,I just do not think he wants people to be unhappy for years and years,

In my yesterday many women left marriages but didn't remarry. I can't think of anything worse than staying in a marriage filled with abuse and violence. I can't see where God would want this. Of course the Bible has always favored the men and I wonder why this is true. It's strange that this conversation is going on when gay marriage is being hotly debated. I would hope this person didn't think this person would be reconciled in heaven, I dare say if one couldn't stand them here why would one wish to see them in Heaven. It makes one wonder how these churches pick and choose their rules on sin.

Mayra may I suggest you obtain and read Kenneth E. Hagins book on Marriage and Divorce--this book provides clarity to a situation that has become very muddled by man's ideas. People mean well when they are advising you, thinking they are helping you. But there are many things to consider and the main one is of breaking the law of love. Ken Hagin points out that this is the Christian's main law to consider and God does forgive the sin that is confessed--if a murderer or child molester can be forgiven and redeemed, why cannot a victim of divorce-or even the person who is guilty of adultery,be forgiven? It isn't really sin that takes one to Hell but the rejection of Christ. Get to know and love Him. You cannot get forgiveness for the sin you don't repent of--ask David and read the book of Psalms. He was a scoundrel at times but he kept a repentant heart. Again, I think reading this book prayerfully will provide great relief to you in this situation. I have been in a situation similar to yours and through prayer and this book, God has shown me His answers. people do mean well but they cannot make decisions like this for you. God bless you and give you peace.

I would suggest you read your bible and go with your own instincts. This is a Television minister who got rich off the backs of the uneducated and mentally impaired people.

we are living in the end times. it is left up to each individual to work out their own salvation in christ jesus. according to our knowledge and acceptance that he is the christ the only begotten son of GOD.and it is through faith and the convicting power of the HOLY GHOST.

any type of sin breaks down a society. however our merciful GOD picks up the pieces of broken men and women. he has repaired and restored hearts back unto himself through jesus christ. love him.

once we have been enlightened by and through the spirit we are no longer walking in darknes.it is not the sun that blinds us but rather the darkness

per above comment. compare the physical aspect of life with the the spiritual aspect. if we refrain from the sun too long and the brightness of the sun due to remaining in complete darkness it is by no means the sun that blinds us but rather being exposed and engulfed by darkness

After reading many comments, it's time to set forth the Theologically, Biblically correct reason why the COGOP changed their "ruling" on divorce and remarriage. In reality, many discourses have been written on this subject, but for the sake of brevity, I will give a brief outline here.
First of all, the word "fornication" in question here (such as used in Matthew 5:32) translated from the original Greek word is "porneia". That word includes all forms of sexual sins including incest, extra marital sex, and harlotry. Consequently, the word "porneia is also the root of the word "pornography."
Matthew 5:32 sets forth at least one "Biblical" condition for divorce to be sanctioned...HOWEVER...
Regardless of any ruling, or correction of how many of you are taking scripture out of context, any sin is forgivable except for one. There are many such as I who divorced due to sexual sin being committed against us, and we know that remarriage is a very real possibility. God is gracious and is all about 2nd chances!
Another thought...to say that the marriage bond is unbreakable is saying that it's stronger than the bond of salvation...how sad.
And yes, I'm a graduate from the university who has the facts and research to back up everything I've said and more! I'm tired of the enemy using this whole argument to create bondage.:)

per above university graduate. no disrespect to you.scripture also lets us know that when there is repentance of sins we are not to go forth and repeat sins again.when we alonehave been forgiven we are not to sin any more.edu cation is good for knowledge.but your knowledge didnt pay for mans salvation.
