Discussion for Matthew 19

  • BSP
    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.
  • SUNDAY CHUKWUEMEKA for verse 9
    Matthew19:9 is as clear as Jesus stated it. It means that a man cannot put away his wife unless on account of fornication. And under this condition, he can marry another woman without being guilty of adultery. But if he puts his wife away on any other condition different from fornication, he should remain unmarried in order to be free from condemnation. Note that Jesus used the words fornication and adultery interchangeably in the verse for those that want to complicate the matter more from there.
  • Jesus said fornication, sex outside of marriage he didn 't say adultery because he told us that if you lust for another woman in your heart you committed adultery. I think he might be quite literal here. If one spouse has fornicates then the other spouse can put her away. I would like to see a greek bible on this.
  • John madden for verse 29
    Thiers no guarantee that our conversion will affect any of these folks mentioned .but it could but also some have been under persuction that have been by those in thier own house hold.some times our relations to god has a adverse affect up on our familys although we would want them saved thats our hope
  • 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?
  • Shara white
    I was reading a reply that says god only allows divorce when a man or woman commits adultery and I agree but it 's not the only reason,,, god allows divorce if the spouse harden his or her heart and also if the spouse is abusive to his or her spouse ....i don 't believe for a minute that god intends for a man or woman to remain in an abusive relationship and especially if a man is being combative with a woman just because they are married when the bible clearly states that husbands should love their wives and not be bitter towards them
