“Jesus Never Said You Can’t Remarry After Getting A Divorce” – Pastor Kingsley Okonkwo Explains
A well known Nigerian pastor and marriage mentor, has said Jesus Christ isn’t against separated from individuals getting hitched once more.
During a message in his congregation as of late, Pastor Okonkwo said he doesn’t have the foggiest idea where individuals got the thought that the Bible is against divorced people remarrying.
As per him, Jesus is just against couples who are isolated however not completely separated getting hitched once more.
In his words, “Jesus never said you can’t remarry when you are divorced. I don’t know where people even got it from. So what confuses people is that Jesus said if you put away your wife and you go and remarry, you are committing adultery.”
“There is putting away and there is what is call giving a bill of divorcement. Putting away is separation. Giving a bill of divorcement is the proper divorce. When you are seperated you are not divorced. Some couple separate so they can work on the marriage. Some times they come together.In counselling we call it controlled separation, so you are separated but working with a counsellor.”
Separation is not divorce. You can separate and come back. When you are separated, you can’t go and remarry. That is what Jesus means that when you separate and go and remarry you are committing adultery because you are not divorced and if you go and marry somebody that is just separated and divorced, you are also committing adultery because the person is not preperly divorced. That is what it means.The bible is clear that once you divorce someone you can remarry.”
