My 34-year-old son got married at 19. His wife cheated on him throughout their 8-year marriage. They were divorced some years ago. He has been dating a very nice Christian girl for over a year now who is also divorced with 2 kids. He told me he can't get married because of Matthew 5:31. Please help!
Your son is incorrectly understanding and applying scripture. He needs to frame his understanding and study through a dispensational view, which will easily clear up the perceived problem.
Matthew, Mark, Luke and John were accounts of Jesus' time on the earth when He was addressing the Jews who were living under the Mosaic Law. Many times Jesus said things to the Law-bound Jews that do not apply to Believers living in the Church Age.
In this case, Paul, speaking to Believers in the Church Age, said to love your spouse as Christ loved the Church.
Eph. 5:25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself up for her,
Since Christ would never divorce the church, we should never divorce our spouses. We have God’s Holy Spirit in us and can “do all things through Christ Who strengthens us.” We can’t, but God can.
1Cor. 7:10 But to the married I give instructions, not I, but the Lord, that the wife should not leave [divorce] her husband
Phil 4:13 I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.
But, knowing that Believers are sinful, he also said: If you do divorce, try to solve the problem and remarry.
1Cor. 7:11 (but if she does leave, she must remain unmarried, or else be reconciled to her husband),
However, if you can’t reconcile, and fall in love with another Believer, it is better to marry than to burn in lust.
1Cor. 7:9 But if they do not have self-control, let them marry; for it is better to marry than to burn with passion.
And to top it off, God says through Paul, if you DO marry after divorce, you have not sinned.
1Cor. 7:28a But if you marry [after divorce], you have not sinned; and if a virgin marries [for the first time], she has not sinned.
So if reconciliation is not possible, and God brings two Believers together, they should get married for better or worse—and mean it this time.
However, he needs to understand that his first divorce was wrong. As a Believer, he's been forgiven, as has the girl he’s dating, but it’s important to recognize this fact before going into marriage again.
He should not divorce his wife if she commits adultery (again, the difference between the instructions to Israel and instructions to us in the Church Age). Even in a Biblically centered marriage, there will be problems. But it’s how you deal with them that make the difference. Quite frankly, it's rare that a woman divorces her husband who is loving her like Christ loves the Church.
So they should not get married again unless they are willing to do it God’s way, not man’s. There are no circumstances that allow for divorce in the Church Age that do not grieve the Holy Spirit. And there are no problems that God can’t solve.
Any husband today must be willing to constantly work hard to mature in his Biblical understanding to be the spiritual leader with a Biblically balanced view of love, God and his wife.
A wife today must be passionately willing to follow her husband's lead, to always respect him even when he fails, knowing God uses failure more often than success to shape a man as a Biblical leader.
In summary, if your son doesn’t get his spiritual life in order, he could very well fail again or have an unfruitful marriage.
1Cor. 7:28b Yet such will have trouble in this life, and I am trying to spare you.

As we plod along in these last days, our adversary's grip on the world becomes more and more apparent. We certainly don't accept that boys can be girls and that men can be pregnant, but that's what they're teaching in our public schools. And when we see that our male military leaders wear dresses, etc., we need to wake up and smell the coffee.
In addition to all the other destruction of America, Satan has the youth of America in his cross-hairs—using public education as his tool. Less reading, writing, history and arithmetic and more woke policies that are hard to fathom. Pray about doing whatever is necessary to get your kids away from Satan's grasp.

Tucker Carlson is keeping the heat on our government's unconstitutional actions. This is a must-see segment that clearly shows the control the deep state has over FBI, CIA, etc. Astonishingly, Mark Zuckerberg candidly admits FBI came to Facebook and asked them to squash the story and restrict the distribution of information on Hunter Biden's laptop.
Further, whistleblowers are coming forward confirming more and more illegal actions. Unfortunately, all this is just the tip of the iceberg. Unbelievable. But will it make a difference?
We’ve always assumed the va((ine kills you quickly (in the first two weeks) because that’s when people notice the association and report it to VAERS. This is still true; it does kill some people quickly.
However, thanks to an HHS whistleblower, we can now clearly see that most of the deaths from the vaccine are happening an average of 5 months from the last dose.

Bottom line—even foreign governments are beginning to warn about the dangers of the clot shots. But here in the land of the free, doctors are still recommending something totally unnecessary that has been PROVEN to harm or kill kids.
Check out this sleight-of-hand chart put out by the Canadian Government. At first glance you would think that va((inated and unva((inated deaths are about the same.
But wait, actually you should be adding the Fully Va((inated and the Boosted to get the full picture. This is what it should look like:
Well, that's a big difference. The chart actually shows that over twice as many are dying who are vaccinated. Hmmm...do you think the Canadian government might be trying to keep its citizens in the dark?
Well, as it turns out, after this info came out proving va((inated were at higher risk of dying from Covid, Manitoba Health released this unexplained message:
So they will just quit telling their citizens how bad it is. Really?

This is pretty funny... OAN news network has this tongue-in-cheek video by Alison Steinberg covering recent events like Biden's clueless mannerisms, inflation, Bill Gates' farmland and bugs baked into our food.
Hey, relax and enjoy!

Del Bigtree, if you've not noticed, is on a mission for the truth to get out about what's really going on. In this segment he and investigative journalist Jeff Jaxen show clips from around the world...some old, some new, and as a whole, shocking statistics!
90-minute video, but you can watch the first 20 minutes or so for a decent overview.
Blood clots are not what's killing all these va((inated people...rather they are self-replicating tissue clots programmed to continuously grow in the veins.
This rather long video explains and takes it up a notch showing how the METALS in the va((ine are tied to the Globalists/Satanists depopulation agenda. But you get a good overview in the first 15 to 20 minutes.
If you do watch into the video, at about the 40-minute mark there is a video showing the IRS supposedly training agents to crash into houses. Hmmmm.... that makes me wonder....would they really release a video like that, especially in an election year and expect to get reelected?
For that matter, would they actually admit to hiring 87K IRS agents to purportedly audit families with incomes under $200K?
Would they really raid the house of a past-President over nothing?
Would they still be recommending Va((ines when 75% of the population know they're dangerous? Even deadly to the point they had to come up with a new category of death: Sudden Adult Death Syndrome?
Would they allow footage to air nationally of Biden looking like he just took a double-dose of sleeping pills?
Would they really try to dismiss $10,000 worth of student debt, without a clue who would pay back these private banks?
This stupidity is endless... unless they are not worried about the future... for some reason. They're telling us what they want us to hear. What's happening that they don't want us to pay attention to? Maybe tissue clots?

It's totally unnecessary to watch the movie...you can see all you need to see just watching the movie's trailer.
Of course we all know that if one of Trump's kids had done ANY of the hundreds of awful things Hunter Biden has done, every national news service in America would be airing it 24/7.
