DS’ False Divorce Teaching
It’s unfortunate it’s come to this. But I’m forced to bring up “Deep Strength’s” false divorce teaching. I put his name in quotes because he’s resorted to removing my latest warning and correction to his lies. I say lies because he’s been repeatedly shown information which he ignores and attempts to contradict. The “no divorce ever” lie must be exposed for the sake of sound doctrine. It’s vital to understanding God’s relationship to His body and to alleviate false, heavy burdens imposed by churchianity.
The information is in the comments of his posts themselves as well as my own past posts on this blog. As of right now, he’s only removed the below post. You can find my full range of posts at https://deepstrength.wordpress.com/2015/09/02/on-divorce-part-2/
Should he delete my other responses, I’ll post them here. Below is the post which was deleted. This post is part of a longer conversation over multiple posts.

They’re not debunked at all. You’re lying and you know it.
1 Corinthians 5: 1, “It is actually reported that there is SEXUAL IMMORALITY(porneia) among you, and of a kind that is not tolerated even among pagans, for a man has his father’s wife.”
Porneia as you’ve been shown and you even admit, includes adultery. I’ll post what was already written back on October 29th.
“There are no distinguishing words. As you’ve been shown many times, the reason why Jesus uses porneia instead of adultery is because a man has the right to divorce his wife if she lied about her sexual history AND also for adultery. If a man is married to a woman for decades and finds out she lied about her sexual history before she was married to him, he has the right to divorce and remarry.”
That’s why Jesus uses “fornication/sexual immorality” instead of “adultery.” You know this. The error you’re making is akin to saying abortion isn’t murder because the term murder is used instead of abortion.
“Put away” is synonymous with divorce in the Greek. Even it it’s not, Jesus still says a man can “put away” for sexual immorality and that means a man can put away for adultery.”
