J.D. Greear On Divorce


I feel the need to be abundantly clear on this: divorce is not the unforgivable sin. As a Christian, the only scarlet God sees on you is the blood of Christ, which covers your sins and presents you before God as his blameless child.

One thought on “J.D. Greear On Divorce

  1. Richard

    I have been divorced for a year now and you wouldn’t believe how many times I get shamed for it even though she left me for another man. Yes I was imperfect and failed at many things which I have taken to heart. But I was wanting to and trying to change long ago. Just not fast enough it turns out. This was a comfort to me. I know God does not take pleasure in my divorce but that doesn’t negate his pleasure with me through his son. I know it’s only been a year but I can’t bear the shame. I stopped going to church in March. There is no grace left in the church. No one is willing to associate with a divorced man. I stopped getting asked to people’s homes, I am no longer welcome in the marriage class, I am not welcomed in the singles class, and was taken from the list of ministry volunteers because a divorced man can not minister to others. I walk around with a constant feeling of being unclean. I could go to an Evangelical church and probably blend in and they would have a ministry for divorced men and welcome me in. But they would never speak of God’s holiness. So where is a man to go? The reformed churches in my town (I am Reformed) are either too liberal or too Evangelical except for the one I just left. The Evangelical churches embrace too much sin in an attempt to not offend anyone. Like I said they would have a place for me but are too loose with God’s commands. I feel the weight of condemnation but I trust in the God and that his grace is sufficient.
