GOD HATES DIVORCE – And VIOLENCE! – Part 2

30 Mar

By Terry Loving

“Better a bit of dry bread in peace, than a house full of feasting and violent behaviour.”  Proverbs 17:1

MALACHAI 2:16

The most misused, misunderstood, and misquoted verse in the Bible concerning God’s hatred of divorce. God hates violence more than He hates divorce, for it kills and destroys those who were created in His image. Misuse of scripture turns the abused away from God – causing many to be eternally lost. I ask again, which is the greater sin?

For days this topic stirred within my soul. I knew there was a real truth out there somewhere, and today, PRAISE GOD – the Holy Spirit led me to it. Below are the links to a four part series titled:

“When Love Hurts: Understanding and Healing Domestic Abuse, When Abuse is Worse than Divorce”

…………………………..

Listen to the stories of the abused. Hear bold and humbled ministers of God speak the truth about abuse and divorce. The misunderstood scripture, Malachi 2:16 will be explained and provide true Biblical clarity. Yes, marriage is precious in the sight of God. However, it is NOT His will that the abused honor Him by submitting to beat downs and mistreatment. Abusers refuse to submit to the Will of God, and sin as a result – “Husbands, love your wives as Christ loved the church.” This is not a request. It is the Will of God.

OK, here are the links to the best resource I have found on this subject. Please be patient, as they are about 26-30 minutes long. It will be worth your time invested – I promise you!

…………………………..

“When a bride takes her vows, she doesn’t expect violence to mark her marriage. But sadly, for some that is the case. It’s probable that you know someone who is the victim of verbal or physical abuse: a neighbor, a daughter, a sister, or a friend. This powerful 4-part series pulls back the curtain on the dark secret of abuse and offers hope and help to those caught in its painful cycle.”

When Love Hurts: Understanding and Healing Domestic Abuse, When Abuse is Worse than Divorce, Part I

When Love Hurts: Understanding and Healing Domestic Abuse, When Submission is Misused, Part II

…………………………..

When Love Hurts: Understanding and Healing Domestic Abuse, When Apologies are Dangerous, Part III

…………………………..

When Love Hurts: Understanding and Healing Domestic Abuse, When the Church is Needed Most, Part IV

…………………………..


“So when a daughter, sister, or friend tells a personal story of marital abuse, we need to be careful. Let’s believe them until we have reason not to. And if their plight is real, they don’t need to be told again about headship, submission, forgiveness, and the threat of losing church membership. They need to know that the God of Moses and Jesus cares not only about marital permanence, but also for those who are caught in abuse that is worse than protective separation and divorce.”

Father in heaven, forgive us for multiplying the pain of those who are living with abusively hard-hearted spouses. Please give us the wisdom we need to offer help and consolation to those who are grieving lost hopes and dreams. –Mart De Haan
