Divorce

Today, Bob had a guest on to talk about divorce. Bob has accepted that many people get divorced and believes thats these people shouldn't be alienated from the church. In fact, the guest talked about how to support divorced persons around Christmas.

But Bob's position got me to thinking. Why is he so accepting of divorce but so unwilling to accept abortion and same-sex marriage? The Bible makes it clear that God hates divorce. Jesus said, "what God has joined together, let not man separate."

Bob argues that the Bible prohibits abortion and same-sex marriage. Therefore, Bob has advocated that abortion and same-sex marriage should be illegal, no matter what your religious beliefs may be.

So why the double standard? Shouldn't Bob be advocating for making divorce illegal as well?

I agree with you whole-heartedly. I read the intent of Jesus' words the same as you, "what God has joined let no man separate." Since Bob's program is sponsored by law firms ( read ambulance chasers) I suppose maybe Bob doesn't want to bite the hand that feeds him ( divorces are pretty lucrative to the guys with the law degrees) Like you I don't understand why Bible Bob isn't ranting that divorce is against THE WORD OF GOD .
