Discussion for Matthew 19

  • A disciple
    Thank you Tim for your nice reply. I enjoy it very much to spend this time searching and discussing THE MOST IMPORTANT AND PROFITABLE things of the Lord. I come here in the morning after my Bible reading, and when I relax in the evening after work. I look forward to talking again soon.
  • Tim
    Disciple, good point when you wrote, "NOT IN ANY WAY to grant approval, but simply for Public Record.".
    I'm going over to John 5 in a day or so and comment on the healing poll, I'd like to here your comments. I enjoyed our interaction.

  • A disciple
    The question that the Pharisees asked; whether it was lawful in every case to divorce; was a treacherous design to catch the Lord in something said, so they might accuse Him. People want to divorce just because they "can't get along;" and the allowance given by Moses was only with the stipulation that the matter be documented legally; NOT IN ANY WAY to grant approval, but simply for Public Record.
  • Tim
    fornication was the uncleanness in the law Moses gave. and it was given for the hardness of heart. and when Jesus was speaking he was speaking to the Pharisees, and said it was given for the hardness of your heart. Jesus is the true law giver and like Moses when Jesus spoke fornication for remarriage is still for the hard hearted. Jesus didn't change the law. he told us what the uncleanness was.
  • A disciple
    "..Who then can be saved? But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible." It is impossible for men who trust in anything of themselves; who they are, what they are, or in their wealth to be saved. But NOTHING is impossible with God! All hindrances and obstacles and misconceptions can be overcome, and men can be saved when God does it!
  • A disciple
    Tim; Fornication breaks the marriage bond just as if the one had died; and it is the ONLY reason, according to the Lord Jesus, that one may leave its spouse; and a brother or sister is not under bondage in such cases. Adultery, fornication, rape... they are all like murder in God's view! I completely agree with you, that as the Elect of God, who walk in Truth, CHRISTIANS ARE NOT THE HARD HEARTED.
