Discussion for Mark 10

  • Lu2677
    The spouse can stay with the person that sinned. There is no command that says there has to be a divorce.
  • Don C.
    Jesus said that a spouse who breaks the marriage covenant has adulterated that covenant (made it unfit for its original purpose). The marriage covenant is no longer valid. The spouse who did not break the covenant becomes a free agent, and may divorce and remarry without sinning. The Bible Trivia question in the right column about divorce and remarriage is incorrect.
  • BSP
    In verse 40 Jesus said the different positions in heaven were not his to give. This right belonged to God to put into place different ones as He sees fit.

    (As it is written in the law of the Lord, Every male that openeth the womb shall be called holy to the Lord;) (by grace ye are saved;) (for he is faithful that promised;) (For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us;) (I speak the truth in Christ, and lie not;)

    I will ransom them from the power of the grave; I will redeem them from death: O death, I will be thy plagues; O grave, I will be thy destruction: For God made not death: neither hath he pleasure in the destruction of the living. But thou sparest all: for they are thine, O Lord, thou lover of souls.

    All flesh is not the same flesh: but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, and another of birds. Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created. For God made not death: neither hath he pleasure in the destruction of the living. For I have no pleasure in the death of him that dieth, saith the Lord GOD: wherefore turn yourselves, and live ye. For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him. The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.
