Is Divorce Allowed?

Sunday I spoke on Mark 10:1-12, and the response of the congregation was amazing.  My views on this passage have changed over the years.  As I came to understand the background of those who asked Jesus the question about divorce, I understood that some of what I’d been told was not true.  Though I believe divorce is too easy in our society, very rarely the best path, and always as a result of sin, it is still allowed by God.  Too often divorced people are treated as second-class citizens in the church.  That is inconsistent with God’s grace and our responsibility to extend God’s grace and love to others.

Here’s a link if you are interested in listening.  Go down the list to the title “Is Divorce Lawful?”
