Does God Punish Christians Who Divorce For No Reason? What If They Remarry? (Watch)
Today we answer the question, does God punish Christians who divorce without cause, and/or remarry. This idea of being punished comes from 1 Corinthians 7:11-12.
1 Corinthians 7:11-12
11 (but if she does leave, she must remain unmarried, or else be reconciled to her husband), and that the husband should not divorce his wife.
12 But to the rest I say, not the Lord, that if any brother has a wife who is an unbeliever, and she consents to live with him, he must not divorce her.
Before you watch the video, let me be clear.
God’s Heart is Not That We Get Divorced
I Encourage ALL Married Couples to Stay Together, When Possible
Marriage is a Picture of our Relationship With Jesus. We SHOULD Hold That in the Highest Regard
Now, with any possible confusion out of the way……
Of course, with few exceptions, it is good biblical teaching that we should not divorce. But let’s take a look at the context of Paul’s letter in 1 Corinthians 7 and see if this is a threat of punishment, or excellent council as to how believers should behave.

Mike Cynar grew up in church and observed that countless people would go to church and then just stop. The church always referred to them as ‘fake Christians’ or ‘backsliders’ but Mike discovered the problem was deeper. The problem was the church message. The message was 90% behavior improvement and how bad you are, with a pinch of who you are in Christ, It was like every sermon was being preached to the church of Corinth. It’s in the Baptist church, Catholic, Pentecost, and most every other church. After discovering the true gospel message and how we are made right with God because of what ‘Jesus did’ (not what ‘we do’) Mike set out to free believers from behavior improvement programs and bring them back to Jesus. The Result – Jesus Without Religion was launched.
