Matthew 5:31-32

"It has been said, 'Anyone who divorces his wife must give her a certificate of divorce.' But I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for marital unfaithfulness, causes her to become an adulteress, and anyone who marries the divorced woman commits adultery.
(NIV)

Wow. I really have myself in a bind with this one. But here are these verses. What can we learn from this?

Consider this, even if not about this particular issue, are you willing to believe the word of God, even when it is difficult, or when it doesn't quite make sense?

There are many out there that would claim to be believers in the Bible, but when it comes to something that they do not agree with, they chuck it! In the end, it is their opinion that has motivated the life.

This passage is difficult, and it steps on toes, regardless of how you interpret it. But are you willing to believe it, even if it is unpopular.
