Is divorce a sin? What does the Bible say about it?
The Marriage Covenant
There are many beautiful and profound parables in God’s design for sexuality. We must approach
this subject with mature hearts and sound minds to arrive at a full understanding of His will for
the union of man and woman. Almost half of marriages end up in divorce today. What does God
think of that? The Bible clearly reveals His mind on the matter.
The word apostasy means “a divorcement from the truth.” Those who have fallen from truth have
done so because they love their own lives. They want to fulfill their own soul’s desires, rather than
to love God above all other things. This great fall of Christendom has certainly impacted the
doctrines surrounding the sanctity and holiness of the marriage covenant. To break faith is an act
of treason. To divorce the wife of one’s youth is a treacherous act, and it happens with great
regularity among Christians today.
Great error has gone forth concerning the doctrines of marriage and divorce. Every
Christian who fears God should study this topic with great diligence. They must rightly
divide the word of God, not searching for something to support the conclusions they
desire to arrive at.
