If You Remarry After Divorce, You Have Committed Adultery- Bible

Category: City Pastor's Teachings

As you already know, adultery is sex between someone who is married and someone who is not their wife or husband.

The dangers of adultery was explained by Jesus in Matthew 5:27- 31. Today Jesus explains further that anyone who divorces his wife unless she was unfaithful leads the woman into committing adultery and anyone who marries a divorced woman also commits adultery.

So, adultery is not just sex between someone who is married, and another not married to him or her, but adultery is also any sex that happens between a divorced woman/man and anyone he/she gets married to unless her husband or his wife is dead. A woman divorced by her husband based on Jesus’ explanation here is not permitted to re-marry. If she does, she has committed adultery, the man who marries her is an adulterer and her husband is a sinner because he divorced her and made her to sin by committing adultery.

Matthew 5: 31-32, “You have heard the law that says, ‘A man can divorce his wife by merely giving her a written notice of divorce, but I say that a man who divorces his wife, unless she has been unfaithful, causes her to commit adultery. And anyone who marries a divorced woman also commits adultery. (NLT)

The only ground on which God permits divorce is if the woman has been unfaithful to her husband. Read Matthew 5: 31-32 (Use an easy-to-read bible to have a good understanding of God’s messages).

Unlike what you may think, Jesus Christ is not partial in this decision here, because there is punishment for man too, because he divorced his wife and made her to sin by committing adultery. If he divorces his wife based on anything else apart from unfaithfulness, then he makes her commit adultery if she re-marries or go into any kind of affair with another man.

Therefore, regardless of whatever is happening in your relationship; maybe the woman is lazy, maybe she’s rude and has one bad attitude or the other that is not pleasant to you, the bible says you should not divorce her except she has been unfaithful to you.

But if you find your wife being unfaithful the bible allows a man to divorce her if he finds it difficult to forgive her. However, the bible preaches forgiveness in all things.
