How many churches allow divorced people to marry?
“Anyone who divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultery, and the man who marries a divorced woman commits adultery.” – Luke 16:18
Jesus had a 3 fold mission – first make it even more impossible for a person to follow God, second shine the Love of God and third be The Only Bridge to God!
Am I saying by the above question and statement that those churches are wrong?
No! But I am saying if those same churches would not allow other forms of Freedom through Christ to be celebrated then they are hypocrites and this is the very reason for a church that is powerless today!
Just look at what Jesus says right before in verses 16-18:
“The Law and the Prophets were proclaimed until John. Since that time, the good news of the kingdom of God is being preached, and everyone is forcing their way into it. It is easier for heaven and earth to disappear than for the least stroke of a pen to drop out of the Law.”
NONE of the Law will disappear NOT a single stroke of it! Why does this matter? Look above for the first of the 3 fold mission of Christ.
The “good news” IS Jesus has come to provide a path to God outside the Law! The Law would Not allow people to get into His kingdom – Now Praise God we can!
Here is the major problem with much of Christendom however – they try to play both sides!
Salvation IS through Christ alone! You can’t fully Trust Christ if you are partially holding onto the laws which make you “feel” comfortable about your connection with God!
Will the Law disappear? NO! Am I teaching that? ABSOLUTELY NOT!
What I am teaching is Follow and Trust in Jesus ALONE!
Christ Alone theology for me was best seen by answering 7 simple questions found here:
The questions are in BLUE AND ALL CAPS and I hope you will seriously study the scriptures and see what is revealed to you through this as well as the many other Bible studies at:
Amen brother, all the law lays within Jesus. We as the children of God aught not be judging but restore gently. If it weren’t for Jesus we all fail. Could it be that this is why many are not healed? Cause of fear of offense? We need to confess one to another and take it to prayer then be healed. The law is good, it lays in Jesus, and Jesus is the only way to God. Non are without faults, thank Jesus for His sacrifice.
Thank you sister!
The law gets me to Jesus but if I am still “doing” the law and thinking it is important after Christ then I will not be focused on growing in Grace and Love and instead be forever forced to contend with the failure of the religious hamster wheel!
Thank you for sharing sister!
Yes, I agree. Focus on love, for He is love! Guess I had to vent a lil, im loving on people who are trying to “DO GOOD” at the same time, on the hamster wheel and judging. Idk, I feel like I need to just pray an d fast abd wait on God.Thank you for the grace to hear me and the love to see me tnroughAgape, brother.
