All Christians are against divorce because...
1) It breaks the marriage vows 'til death do us part'
made to eachother, to God and the Christian community
Marriage is a life long commitment
2) Marriage is a spiritual union, where God joins a couple together, making them one.
Jesus taught that 'no-one should seperate what God has joined together'
3) Marriage is a sacrament, a physical ceremony that brings the couple spiritually closer to God.
Because God is part of the marriage - it cannot be undone
- Divorce is undesirable BUT marriages do breakdown irreparably
-Jesus allowed Divorce - a man could divorce his wife if she was unfaithful (vice versa)
- DO NOT ALLOW DIVORCE
-only if partner dies
-Married partners fall out? Live seperately and remain chaste.
