God must have had a wonderful sense of humor. He made everything.
He did not make all pleasant thing sinful but he did make nearly all sinful things pleasant

The hint is plain enough but so is the irony.

It does appear sin always provides immediate gratification.

Danuwoa,

Sure there is my friend.

“Always be prepared to give a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear”.
I was being sarcastic. We can admit that we are sinners without being so filled with despair over it.

That is provided too but why was all the unnecessary temptation needed?

How would we ever know we were clay if not for enduring some identity with it as contrasted to something else?

Probably the same way we know we aren't the brown stuff in the bowl but then we ain't far from it. LOL

Adultery is unlawful relationship between men and women, single or married. Out of 69 times the sin is referred to in Scripture, only two passages speak of spiritual adultery (Jer. 3:3-12; Ez. 16:37). This term is not used in the broader sense of all forms of unchastity as is fornication. All adultery is fornication, but all fornication is not adultery.

Matt. 19:3 The pharisees also came unto him, tempting him, and saying unto him, is it lawful for a man to put away his wife for every cause? Meaning

This must be kept in mind in dealing with this question. The real issue here is divorce for every cause." not divorce for fornication which was lawful (Dt. 24:1-4). This was the great controversy among the Jews at this time, Rabbis had made void Dt 24:1-4. They now permitted divorce on many frivolous grounds, such as careless seasoning of food, causing the husband to eat food which had not been tithed, going into the street with loose or uncombed hair, spinning in the street, loud talk or constant talking in the home, the husband's finding ne more beautiful than his wife and many other things.

Matt. 19:4 And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, he that which made them at the beginning made them male and female, meaning
v.7.
Gen. 1:26-28; 2:21-25. This settles the question of evolution.


Matt. 19:5 And said; For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh?
Matt. 19:6 Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let no man put asunder. Meaning
Many today claim that all married people are not joined together by God, so they are free to marry the one God intended then to have. The fact is that God recognizes all legal marriages and will hold people responsible for their vows (Rom. 13:1-10).

Matt. 19:7 They say unto him Why did Moses then command to give a writing of divorcement, and to put away?
Matt. 19:8 He said unto them, Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not so. Meaning
Stating why Moses suffered divorce for fornication. Moses saw that if he did not permit divorce many women would suffer untold hardships from ungodly husbands.


Christ defeated His enemies by answering them with Moses, not that Shammai or Hillel said on the question. Hardness of the heart and divorce were not intended by God and they will not be in the eternal kingdom when Christ reigns over the natural generations forever (Gen. 8:22; 9:12; Isa. 59:20; Lk. 1:32, 33; Rev. 11:15; 22:4, 5; Dan. 7:13, 14).

Matt. 19:9 And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery. Meaning
Any man who divorces his wife for any cause except fornication commits adultery if he marries another. Any man marrying her that is divorced for her own fornication commits adultery. this was evidently an unpleasant answer to these scheming men who wished to be free to put away their wives for "every cause."


7 Reasons Marriage is Indissoluble."
By divine institution (v4, 6, 8)

By express commandment (v5, 6)
By the example of Adam and Eve (v 8)
Because marriage makes a man and a woman one flesh, with complete union of interests, fortunes, desires, joys, sorrows, and a lifelong partnership (v5, 6)
Because of the veils consequent to divorce for themselves, their children, and others who become entangled in sin by it (v 9; Mk. 7:21; Rom. 1:29-32)
Because of the penalties involved by causing such evils (v 9; Gal. 5:19-21; 1 Cor. 6:9-11)
Because there is no excuse under the gospel for "hardness of heart" against each other (2 Cor. 5:17, 18; Eph. 4:24; Gal. 5:24)

N. T. Exceptions of This Law:
Fornication (v 9; 5:32). One can easily understand this in view of Pr. 2:16-20; 6:24-26; 7:5-23; 9:13-18; 11:22; 30:20-23).
Willful desertion because of Christ and the gospel (1 Cor. 7:12-15) see Matt. 5:32.
If one has to live with a wife with all the dissatisfaction and unhappiness, as in some cases, it is best not to marry.;)

Mk. 10:2 And the Pharisees came to him, and ask him. Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife? Tempting him. Meaning
see Mt. 3:7.
Divorce means to set free, undo a bond, loose. give liberty to, release, cut apart. see Mt. 5:31.

In Christ's there was a great controversy about divorce and remarriage. It was known as the Hillel-Shammai dispute. Hillel taught that a man could divorce his wife for any cause whatsoever. Shammai held that a man could not for every cause, but for the one cause of fornication or adultery. With the Jews the right to divorce was a right to remarriage and this was accepted without question by all in Israel.
The question here is not the right to remarry, but only the right to divorce. The Pharisees wanted to know which side of the controversy Jesus was on. It was the prevailing custom to divorce and remarry times without number, hence the strategy was to make Jesus unpopular or even be killed by Herod as was John the Baptist. Jesus agreed with Shammai that Fornication was the only exception (Mt. 5:32; 19:3-12). He did not change the Jewish universal practice that a right to divorce was right to remarriage. He let this be as it was in Dt. 24:1-4. This is clear from the fact that He referred them to what Moses commanded (v 3). He did not say that Moses was out of the divine will in making a law of divorce, but merely that it was because of their hardness of heart that such was permitted by God, and that from the beginning this was not the will of God (v 6-9).

Sins that dam-n the soul: ten classes that will be lost (Rom.1:29; Gal. 5:19; Col. 3:5).

1 Cor. 6:9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind.
1 Cor. 6:10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, "shall inherit the kingdom of God.

Matt. 19:9 is read in church by teachers but never explained just read over and on to the next verse. And the reason is because it stirs up the devil and many are in double marriages and are members of the church. But the truth is the truth this is why John the Baptist die, standing for the truth.

Fornication in the Bible means:
adultery of married or single people.
Meaning a single person man or woman that has sex together, if not married to one another and both are single and never been married before they are consider a fornicator.

If the man is single and marries a woman that has been married or divorced, the single man is a fornicator committing fornication and she is and adulteress's committing adultery so Matt. 19:9 gives this man the right to divorce her so that he can either remain single or marry a single woman as he is his self, and the woman can remain single or go back to her first husband and reconcile that she is not living in adultery. This is the same if the woman were single and the man married or divorced, and she marries him. Except he would be and adulterer.

If a man or woman has been in a divorce and they remarry having a living wife or husband, they are living in Adultery as long as their first wife or husband is still living. The only way to be free is to divorce the second wife or husband and stay single or reconcile with their first wife or husband. As long as they are married to the second wife or husband, having a living wife or husband, he is an Adulterer, and she is an adulteress's. That is why 1 Cor 6:9 mentions nor fornicators, nor adulterers.

know a pastor of a church that had been married for the second time with a living wife of the first marriage, wasn't qualified to pastor, but said he was because he was lost when he remarried but this doesn't, change, God's Word once he learns God's Word, and he was enlighten of God's Word which shows it to be wrong. He was to release her and stay single or go back to he's first wife.
