      Theology of Divorce?

      Found this elsewhere:


      PreacherBruce said:

      As you have said, I am seeking a church, not a debate. I agree with you that if people want to discuss the divorce and remarriage issue (which is an extremely important issue) in depth, a separate thread would be appropriate. I would be willing to participate in this as time permits, but I know from experience that this subject can attract contentious arguments if not handled in a Christ-like manner. I think that there would need to be a commitment on the part of those involved to maintain a godly, courteous attitude.

      Thanks!
      So is divorce a theological issue
      Is divorce the unpardonable sin
      Does divorce and re-marriage keep a man from every being a pastor, deacon, teacher - ect
      May a man be a pastor if he is divorced, but not re-married?
      Should a church ask about a prospective church member if he is divorced?
      What leadership positions may a divorced (re-married or not) person hold in a church.
      Is an annulment the same as a divorce for this purpose?
      If your church has a strict policy on divorce, then later a pastor wants to loosen it some - what would you do?

      any other points to bring up?

      Do not feel obligated to answer all questions

      But please - do respect Pastor Bruce final sentence in the quote above.

      The way I always heard it, "the husband of one wife" simply means "one wife at a time".

      As far as divorce and re-marriage in the life of a pastor, I don't believe it is a good testimony. If he can't rule his own home, how can he rule the House of God?

      Would that mean that a failed marriage that lasted a couple of years disqualifies one as a pastor even though he now has a solid 30+ year marriage?
