Example text

They counsel new Christians to relocate old spouses and to rewoo and rewed them, no matter what the situation or the causes for divorce might have been. Of course, most unions are impossible to reconstruct once they have been fragmented. It is the old story of trying to unscramble eggs. This, though, does not prevent misguided mentors from advocating such a course. Scripturally, I feel they are on very shaky ground because there is no place in Scripture where such a procedure is advocated, and careful reading of Deuteronomy 24:1-4 would lead one to believe it might even be forbidden by God.

This was in my younger days when the family and the home were more or less stable and the church was the instrument for raising the aspirations of mankind above that of the "human" level. Today, with the family unit besieged on every side and occupying little more than a shadow of its former stature, it has become obvious that the family and the home are of paramount importance if we are to hope to see our present state of "civilization" preserved. As the integrity of the family unit has deteriorated, crime, sin and perversion have escalated to exactly the same degree.

Who can resist a repentant heart? Psalms 51:16-17 says, "For thou (God) desirest not sacrifices; else would I give it: Thou delightest not in burnt offerings. " God, therefore, promises He will not withhold forgiveness from anyone exhibiting a contrite (repentant) heart. Of course, repentance is inextricably intertwined with resolution to abstain from the same practice in the future. ) True repentance involves resolution to change past practices and avoid sin in the future. Given such repentance, it is not too demanding to say that the offended party should be Christlike in granting mercy and forgiveness, and restoring the offender to his former position of trust in the family unit.
