2 Verses Which Make Biblical Divorce and Remarriage Clear

by shammahworm

Here are two simple verses for anyone who isn’t in the mood to read my post on biblical divorce and remarriage. Yes, there is biblical divorce and remarriage.

1 Corinthians 5: 1(KJV), “It is reported commonly that there is fornication among you, and such fornication as is not so much as named among the Gentiles, that one should have his father’s wife.

Adultery IS fornication.

Matthew 19: 9(KJV), “And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery.

Jesus is without a doubt including adultery when He says “fornication.” Anyone who rejects this definition of “fornication” must also reject the KJV of the Bible. The reason why Jesus says fornication and not adultery is because a man also has the right to divorce a woman who’s lied about her sexual history – even if they’ve been married for decades.

Porneia(translated as “fornication”) has never at any point meant only premarital sex. It’s always included adultery. Anyone who reads this and continues to propagate the falsehood that adultery isn’t grounds for divorce is lying. A man has the right to divorce and remarry in cases of sexual sin. No pastor or elders have the authority to tell him no once sexual sin is established.
