Topics for the Sunday Evening Class on Divorce and Remarriage

Here is a list of questions that are going to be covered over the next few Sunday nights.

  • We don’t usually mention allowing the unbelieving spouse to depart as a scriptural cause for divorce, what are your thoughts on that?  (I Cor. 7:12-16)
  • Can only men remarry after divorce due to sexual immorality?  (Mt. 19:9)
  • What if someone is in an adulterous marriage?  What are they expected to do?
  • What if unbelievers are in an adulterous marriage and then they are baptized?  Are they forgiven?  What is expected from them?
  • Bob is divorced.  Stacy then marries Bob because he said he had a right to remarry.  What if Bob lied?  What happens to Stacy?
  • Fred and Karla divorce each other.  If Fred marries someone else does Karla now have a right to get married?
  • What is considered sexual immorality?  Does lusting after another man/woman count?  Is pornography grounds for divorce?
  • George married Athena who is a divorcee.  Then George learned about Jesus’ teaching and realized he is in a sinful marriage because Athena did not have a right to get married.  If George divorces Athena, does he have a right to marry someone else?
  • If a judge signs a divorce, has he or she sinned?
  • What does “only in the Lord” (I Cor. 7:39) mean?
