A Cry For Justice

Awakening the Evangelical Church to Domestic Violence and Abuse in its Midst

Grounds for Divorce Digest

Here are the six posts in my Grounds for Divorce series.

1. The tangled mess of mistaken notions about what the Bible teaches on divorce

2. The Bible uses different words for divorce but they all mean legal divorce. Those who tell you otherwise are mistaken.

3. Jesus did NOT say “Hardness of heart is grounds for divorce”. Deuteronomy 24 has been greatly misunderstood.

4. The Jewish divorce certificate gave women the right to remarry, but some men used it rule over women

5. Does Scripture differentiate between ‘putting away’ and ‘divorce’?

6. Divorce in Deuteronomy 21 gives dignity and rights to the woman

    It is almost as if a series on “What Actually is Marriage?” is also needed, since so many people think that marriage includes the scenario of an abused spouse being forced to remain in the continual vow-breaking, covenant-mocking conditions being pawned off as “a picture of Jesus and His Bride.”
