1. Jesus Hates Divorce
Oh, you are known by me cringe once you hear that! It is thrown in the face as though divorce proceedings could be the unpardonable sin. But letвЂ™s be honest: Jesus does hate divorceвЂ¦and so do youвЂ¦and so do we.
When I begun to look more deeply into Malachi 2:16, i came across the context interesting. The thing is that, the context is for the unfaithful partner, the main one who hurts his/her spouse profoundly. It is about being cruel to your better half, the one which we must love and protect a lot more than virtually any. Jesus hates those things that usually lead to divorce as it is known by us.
Since our company is throwing around items that Jesus hates, letвЂ™s have a look at another passage:
You can find six things the father hates, seven which can be detestable to him: haughty eyes, a tongue that is lying fingers that shed innocent bloodstream, a heart that devises wicked schemes, foot which are quick to rush into evil, a false witness who pours out lies and someone who stirs up conflict in the neighborhood (Proverbs 6:16-19).
Ouch! That stings! I’ll just tell that anyone who is tossing Malachi 2:16 at you has to stop and take a good look at Proverbs 6.
