Let us examine the truth of the matter and the evidence of that Truth.
Marriage was not legal for Black slaves in America. Yet black slaves were married and many honored their marriages even when forced to separate by their slave owners and slave auctioneers. A certificate did not legalize or validate their marriage. And neither did the lack of a marriage certificate void their marriage. REAL godly marriage takes place in the privacy of our hearts and souls; above the wickedness of humanity and the sanctimoniousness of religions. It is a totally divine and permanent union orchestrated by GOD between a man and woman. This is the definition and understanding of marriage that Christ spoke out of when teaching on the sexual fidelity and permanence of marriage and the moral justification of divorce in the sight of God which, for the victim of infidelity, carried with it the moral right to marry again within the community of Faithful born again believers. That is why no man can put asunder what God has joined together for no man has that Power over GOD’S institution of marriage. (Mark 10:9)
However, whatever mankind or man’s institutions licenses or certifies, mankind also reserves the right and authority to dissolve, separate and divorce. That is why disgruntled married couples who are married under civil authority by a civil Certificate of Marriage – Although a Priest or Pastor may have performed the ceremony – have to petition the civil courts for annulment, separation and/or divorce. They don’t appeal to God or THE CHURCH or the Pastor for a divorce because GOD didn’t join them together, a piece of paper representing the civil authority of legal jurisprudence did.
Many approach the Scriptures with a presumption of knowledge and wisdom and therefore prejudice any text that they may read with their own bias and misinformed and corrupt human moral views and hypocritical theological ideologies. Their understanding lacks divine revelation. They only have human translations and interpretations. And no scriptural text has been more prejudiced and twisted than those pertaining to marriage and divorce, i.e., Matthew 5:32, Matthew 19:9, Mark 10:11, Luke 16:18 and 1 Corinthians 7:15.
However, once the LORD reveals to us the TRUE meaning and definition of Marriage in the context of His WORD and WILL and how HIS divine institution was meant to be understood and lived out, it will help us understand the parameters and application of Marriage more accurately – eliminating the chances for misinterpretations and inaccurate applications and spiritual confusion.
God is not the author of confusion. It would be confusing for God to obligate someone to an unfaithful marriage that God did not validate in the first place. And it would be inconsistent with GOD’S Love and Mercy for God to obligate a morally righteous divorced person from entering into a new marriage – a mate of the LORD’S Choosing.
GOD is not cruel or inhuman. But Religion Often Is.
Ask GOD For Further Revelation On His Institution Of Marriage and Stop Having Your Marriages Defined By Religions and Federal and Civil Institutions They are not right nor righteous. Only GOD is RIGHT!
Only GOD is RIGHT!
