  • MockingBird for verse 19
    I will honor my parents in all even if I do not agree with what they do : They are my parents and I will respect and honor them : To love my neighbor as myself is hard sometimes : But it can be done : I have Holy Spirit within to help : In not doing these is great loss : In doing these , there is Great Blessings !!
  • 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.
  • Shirley Jeffcoat for verse 9
    Fornication is two individuals not married to each other having sex. When Jesus said you can't put your wife away except fornication all this means, if your spouse cheats on you. You are no longer under the vow of marriage law. You are allow by God to divorce them. He is letting you know that is the only reason you can divorce and remarried any other way you are an alduterious. Marriage was meant until death so it should be taken seriously. Once you lay with someone else you have sinned against your own body and you twain is no longer one. So you have freed your spouse from marriage until death. You can forgive them but you don't have to continue living with them. So before you get married take a long look at that person beyond physical attraction lust ... and look deep in your heart to see if you are willing to spend the rest of your life with them. God word is true and will never fail.
  • God is very clear! Homosexuality violates His Holy word.
  • 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.
