People's Bible Notes for Matthew 19:6

Discussion for Matthew 19:6

  • God 's rules and never change, he it 's true to his word. In society I believe when a couple it 's married by church, a judge in court should not be allowed to divorce them, the Law of Society should stay separate from God 's ruling.
  • Very true and people better take heed to this scripture I 've seen what God has joined together and people try to separate then god dealt with them and that was not so nice experience he is serious about his plan !!!!!!!!!
  • God meant for the marriage arrangement to be permanent. The two are to become one flesh and man should not break that union apart.
