True to death do us apart!
Christianity in Norway had come in a huge dilemma as to what loyalty. Christian virtues points to all of devotion and loyalty to the Master and Lord, we are set to serve. The allegiance and loyalty to a soul shows Jesus Christ, the same faithfulness and loyalty to the soul to show to their fellow man, or his neighbor if you want. "What you have done to one of my least, that you have made against me." (Matthew 11: 11,25,40)
The pressure against the truth of God today, do not, only, go to small differences between Christians, but the big deep truths that are essential for human beings. It is of secondary importance if the people believe in these truths or not. History shows that in plain truth in these spiritual laws work. Marriage and family life is such a truth.
What God had intended should be the greatest earthly blessing from His hand, has become the biggest crisis a hell on earth for both small and large. What makes me uneasy in the gay debate is that it is largely adulterers who are engaged. They are for marriage and family as it is called so good. It's just that the Bible calls adultery sin as the Bible calls homosexuality sin. If a homosexual can be inserted as an elder or church earn if he is practicing his homosexuality, what is it that makes a marriage breaks can stand in these services and continue to whore his life, when Jesus says that he must reconcile himself or remain alone? The man partiality, it is not to say that Jesus does.
One can hear the profile preachers who will not talk about these things, because this is such a difficult subject, I hesitated. If the Lord's witness finds it difficult to understand what a child understands the basis of nature, it must be allowed to respond. To preach the Gospel and charity must be difficult, because these truths are the linked. When Jesus will explain to us the secrets of the gospel, He uses marriage to make it easier to grasp spiritual truths and vice versa. If marriage is hidden truths of a preacher, I have a strong suspicion that the secret Gospel is also hidden. (Matt.5: 32 and 19:9, Mark.10 :11-12, Luk.16: 18, Rom. 7:2-3 and 1 Cor. 7:10-11).
In the above Scriptures out there about marriage. When these truths are added together sit back with God's perfect idea of the marriage that he himself has initiated. "The sum of Your word is truth, and forever is all Your righteousness law firm" (Salme.119: 160).
When people break the marriage and marry again, they quickly refer to God's grace. God's grace is more than settled law in this area. Jesus asked his disciples, "What did Moses / law?" Anyone who divorces his wife must give her a divorce. "So far the law.
Grace in Christ is back and says, "but I say unto you", Then he sharpend the demands. And he has nothing more to say as he states. Something you can see from the above Scriptures. Jesus speaks of this in three of the four gospels. The Apostle Paul thought Jesus supports both the Romans and in a Korintierbrev. Marriage is supposed to last until death do us the ad. Faith unto death.
If Jesus had been settled in this area, he would have broken the charity bid, he himself has created. Therefore, all that I want people to do against you, it will also do I receive them: for this is the law and the prophets (Mt. 7.12). This you shall love your neighbor as yourself, and you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind (Matt.22 :37-40).
These kjærlighetsbud to all the law and the prophets resting on. So, Jesus had lowered the requirements here, there had been breaches of the charity bid, and we had not had any gospel back. Jesus has not said a word too much, nor a word too small.
In Jesus' talk of atonement for adultery, he pointed to the gospel road, and when it will turn out in practice where there is lack of love. The refusal to reconcile himself with his neighbor, is to put themselves out of spiritual blessing. It's the same thing happens with every single person who will not be reconciled with Jesus. The lost gospel blessing because they do not want.
That there are those who are irreconcilable inserted in important assignments and positions in the church of God, I think it is most revealing about how the problem has taken root. It also explains why this is so difficult to talk about the kjendispredikantene. Pure cowardice!
When one hears these marriages break ernes excuses one is concerned. Need someone who is innocent to apologize? Attitudes that dominate are: He / she was sick so I had to separate me, he / she had no sense of the Economic, etc. etc. If you do not have something constructive to make, stamped man as psychopath. This requires the no evidence. If one is cynical and assume the role of victim, you get quick sympathy. Cheeky Truth have said that no limits, whether it should be in or outside the church of God. The fact that psychopaths are superb with the children, making it unpalatable.
"Love your wives as Christ loved the church and gave himself for it". (Efeserbr. 5:25). It means to love without demanding something in return. The relationship should break, there must be an open road tilbake.Dette is the way Christ shows and no easy solution. A valid divorce occurs only when your spouse has committed adultery. But even then you have a legitimate choice between living alone or reconcile with your spouse. Settlement Performance will always be after God's heart and comfortable.
Another thing is of course if one of the potentially life must keep from their spouse. But this is rare and is like taking the rape in the abortion debate. But even there, God can restore and it should never be a Christian block the road again for the Settlement of contents if there's a genuine helping hand to it!
To reject his wife without biblical reason is sin. It is also true, as one put it. "To commit adultery is to use up another human being." To dismiss a person makes a because a contempt rather than love. Preserving what you love. "Whoever hates his brother is a murderer, and I know that no murderer has eternal life, lasting in them. (1 Jn. 3:15).
Mon hear often from pundits, the suffering has rights, the innocent party has rights, etc. Who is given authority to distribute rights to Christians beyond what is stipulated in the Holy Scripture? It would be nice with a name for all those who felt unfairly treated.
When a marriage breaks are entering into important positions in the Church of God, this shows an audacity unprecedented. The church leadership that supports and looks up to this is with and trample on it that is rejected, does sin and are left again with a greater responsibility than the others. "They should get the heavier sentence." Guidance and training is a serious matter.
Marriage Break is a lie, and lie is sin. Sin remains until it is recognized, famous and made up. To marry a divorced man / woman is theft. "He that before he stole steal no longer" (Efeserbr.4: 28). Not only the loot, but it's banned goods that they even brag about and not bother to dig down. Is not man then got in the terrible situation, that it commends itself because of their and others' sins?
We see that the Word of Scripture is always on the weak side. This is also in questions concerning marriage, divorce and remarriage. It is the survivors and the abandoned Jesus stands on the same team with. He stands by the weak party. Just as with a woman who was caught in adultery. She stood in the light of his sin, while those who would stone her standing in the dark. Therefore, Jesus stood by her and said, "Neither do I condemn you. Go and sin no more! "
There is much suffering and many difficult situations by adultery and affairs. But some clear lines for Jesus and His Word us. We are forgiven in the same degree that we forgive others. "Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive our debtors" (Matthew 6:12). Also holding forth the Word of God that even the abandoned either to live alone or reconcile with his spouse (1 Corinthians 7:11).
What does these things? The gospel is the message of reconciliation performance. The man who refuses to reconcile himself with his next sits outside the gospel. This applies both within and outside marriage framework. It is therefore important that this message is preached.
Maybe next escapade and separation are not so alluring when you know that a hardness in the field exclude one from salvation in Jesus Christ. The gospel is the message of love and reconciliation performance. Room 5:20, "But the law came to fall so that would be great, but where sin was great, grace was even greater."
For those who humble themselves will always God have mercy and a way out of trouble! But for those in pride is the opposite, it will only be back anger and resentment. Rooms 2:5-8, "If your hardness and your heart ubotferdige ophoper thou anger on the day of wrath, that day when God's righteous Judgement is revealed, he will pay everyone according to his deeds: those with persistence in doing good seek glory and honor and immortality, he will give eternal life, but those who are rebellious and disobedient to the truth, but obey the inequality, it will be an hour's anger and resentment. "
There is great sin is grace even bigger! But you'll never get out of the necessity of a forgiving mind willingness to reconcile themselves with their original spouse. Matt 19:6: "So they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore, what God has sammenføiet, there should a man not separate. "
When we summarize God's word has its overall teaching on marriage and weddings, we see that a marriage consists of three main pillars.
2. Public marriage before God and man and
3. That one eventually becomes one flesh with the sexual relationship. This binds the two people together to death separates them ad. Nothing casual sexual relationship, no paper alone, not cohabiting couple, but when all the Biblical elements are present, the Word of God that one is married.
Therefore what God has to be added together no man separate! Faith unto death! Committed the adultery, there is room for divorce yet followed the way that either the settlement itself back together or living alone.
The devil has for several years intensified its attacks against the marriage, both from within and from outside. The world standard is clear. They take in marriage and given in marriage just like the time before the Second Coming was characterized by. A time of immorality, unkind and careless treatment of Divine institutions. Now it is time to turn up in the old book to see how things should be when we walk on the Sky Road.
As one put it: Are you going to Heaven, you must go the way that leads to Heaven! Faith unto death! Then is when the victory wreath uvisnelige account for both large and small sinners. The humble God gives grace!
Note that we do not go into the detail but held to what is written there. Note also that it is the woman and / or man who is uncompromising as this is God's verdict on their works. The proud stand against God! Where, however, is humility and room for compromise performance, we know that God has a way and he will give grace!
