Discussion for Mark 10

  • John
    I am fully aware of getting married if your spouse dies but I'm talking about fornication it doesn't tell you that the other is free to marry another person if one of them fornicates,that person is also wrong if they remarry
  • A disciple
    Hi John; The verse you ask about is about getting divorced. The one whose spouse has passed away is free to marry again. As a Christian we are only allowed to marry "in the Lord" that is, to another believer. If one of the spouses fornicates, then the bond is broken the same as by death. There is also the case of an unbelieving spouse leaving: and the brother or sister is not in bondage in that.
  • John
    I lost my wife a year ago do to cancer and have met different people in the mean time and had conservation regarding marriage and divorce and in verse 11and12 it is very clear to me. Any comments
  • Sisterhelen
    Mark 10:21 Then Jesus beholding him LOVED him. John14:21 He that hath my commandments and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me and he that loveth me shall be LOVED of my Father and I will LOVE, him and will manifest myself to him.

    verses 42-45, contrast these with Acts 6:2. The twelve really messed up here. They reverted back to their old way of thinking and not only missed out on a blessing, but set a standard and a precedent that has lived on to modern times. This precedent is WRONG! To be the greatest of all you MUST be the servant of all. These are the words of Jesus.

    Verses 21 and 22: The rich young man placed a greater importance on material things than being a follower of Christ. He missed out on spiritual blessings because he had too great of an attachment to material things.
