Yay! Don't let the sins of others keep you away from that which provides you with His Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity. It's like staying away from your spouse because others are cheating on theirs.
I live in a huge parish and we have some sort of Bible study--from different groups/organizations--every single day.
Thank you for the words of righteous rebuke/correction. I have returned to the daily Mass and continued giving out Holy Bibles for our Japanese partioners to read (in Japanese/Catholic version). So at your church, how often is Bible study? Have a great day!
Thanks Ma'am. You have some very good points, however I will not judge the person using the statement of Christ's view on the only acceptable reason for divorce to his or her sinful advantage. The visual results will be seen and call it what you will, but a concerned Christian will address the issue with him or her, if they are in fact a part of the Christian community (and in many cases even if the person is not a Christian, but a friend). Judging is done by Christians everyday, the question is what are you going to do to help? Judging doesn't always have to be negative, as long as the compassion of Christ follows in the wake of the misery to help the lost soul.
My answer to your questions in the longest thread I've seen on Catholic answers, I do agree 100% on no divorce and remarrying, but I didn't say that is what the Baptist church I went to said. I know for a fact the Pastor will not marry an unbeliver to a believer. I can't believe they locked the subject. What is up with that ma'am (it was just getting good). Example: Also, if you (I hope and pray this never happens to you) started to get abused mentally and physically by your husband, would you just stay separated for the rest of your life as compared to getting divorced and starting over? I was a policeman for 20 years and I can tell you it is real easy to say this is what you would do unless you were in that situation. I understand the statement by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, but who are we to understand what the grace of God may do? Many would say this is what Christ would do, but this man (God in the flesh) was so moved by the human situation that we just don't know (the actual situation of physical abuse by a husband was not covered in the Bible that I recall). The compassion of Christ is beyond our definition of compassion. Just as God's pure love is beyond our comprehension as humans. Take Care Ma'am and thanks for all the answers.
