Discussion for Mark 10

  • A disciple
    Marriage is a wonderful blessing and kindness from God. How dreadful for a man to be alone in the world, and a woman to have no man to be his companion and help build his house! But no one seems to give us the kind of advice and deep insight we need to build a successful Marriage relationship. It takes love, first and always! And it takes humility and honesty, and not being too proud to learn! :)
  • John
    Thier are more places in the Bible that talks about this and if the partner does thier part in a marriage very seldom will the other leave, but most want to only go have way in a marriage and think about them selves you have to give it 100% and don't think about yourself. What did Jesus do did he think about himself or others???
  • Ieanyi amaobichukwu
    To me i belive the word of God,but these word of God let us to instead u will leave ur wife went out side u better bring her in and married again.can this been committing adultery.
  • A disciple
    Kathleen; The Lord was talking about the ones leaving; NOT the one who was betrayed! "If the unbelieving depart, let them depart; a brother or a sister is not under bondage in such cases." As for the adulterer or adulteress; when they sin and break the Marriage Bond, and then go get someone else; they then cause that one to commit adultery by being with them. God judges righteous in all things!
  • Evangelist kathleen
    according to mark 10:12. What if the woman has proof she did nothing to make her ex husband commit adultery, why then is she commiting adultery by remarrying?
  • A disciple
    John; If one leaves his wife and children to fornicate, then he has broken the marriage bond and is the same as dead: so the wife who was betrayed is free if she wants to marry another. Meanwhile the man who sinned against his wife and children should repent! If he can be reconciled to his family he should try; or stay unmarried. I won't say if he can marry again: he first needs to be a saved man!
