Discussion for Matthew 19

  • S. Burris
    My comments on verse 9 I feel if you get a divorce if the man or the woman gets put away just don't marry, cause I want to go to heaven and I don't want nothing hendering me from going, so I suggest just stay single and live for the Lord. We have so many people today just marriing and if they don't like this one, they go and get another, not of the Lord.

    verse 29.... "and every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name's sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life".

    ( Wow, it is good to know the best is yet to come).

    Jesus referred to singleness as a gift in verses 11 and 12. If we use our lives wisely while single, this can be a real gift.
  • Connie Snyder for verse 7
    Moses is commanding here. God is the only commander unless, Moses referred to God 's laws of sacred scripture to the couple.if their heart 's were hard, as the bible words it, that doesn 't warrant a divorce. Or are they hard with the lord?

    Nick, if those in heaven did not have "free will ", satan would still be there! Verse 9 says "fornication " is the only acceptable cause of divorce and if a man divorce his wife without this cause and she remarries, she has sinned and the man caused it by putting her away, i.e. divorcing her.
  • Nick o demus for verse 14
    Could all you be blind, surely he is telling you that this is the mentality of those in paradise. No cares, worries, needs, wants or free will, you will be like children !
