1 Corinthians 7:14-19 (ESV)— “Therefore, wives, be subject to your own husbands, as to the Lord. Husbands, love your wives, as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself up for her, that He might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing with water by the word, and with the word and spirit. . . .”
The Bible says women are not to be disobedient. However, if a wife does not obey her husband, and he forces her to do so, that is the sin of marital rape. In the Bible, Jesus never says women can’t do such things as going to a restaurant and ordering an orange. He even commands us not to drink anything “that is sweetened by honey,” including honey. He condemns them for these sins, saying (Luke 6:23-24): “Therefore whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery against her. . . . Whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her has committed adultery against her.”
Why is divorce so dangerous?
The Bible says marriage should be permanent. It says we can’t change the way God created us, so we cannot take on a husband who does not love and honor us. So why would a husband want to keep his wife even if she does not want to be married to him? Because a husband can take away her rights to property without her consent, she cannot divorce him without his consent, and he can take away her marriage license without her consent (2 Corinthians 6:14-16).
Jesus gave us His Word and He did not say men are God’s ideal for wives. However, because so many people, including many Christians, think women are meant to love only men, they think divorced and remarried women are less worthy for marriage.
In the story of Jesus’ adultery, He did a special grace to two women, Mary Magdalene and Martha, so they could not become involved with the other person. Later, they both had the chance to hear of Christ’s passion. The first two women “knew what was coming, and they were trembling all the more, because they heard the word of God.” (Matthew 19:31) In light of their testimony, Jesus gave them the power to divorce him if they wanted to. (Matthew 20:15)
How do Christians know the Bible and their minister’s interpretation of it is true?
