Is Divorce Considered a Sin?
By Irvin Baxter
Question: Jeanette from North Carolina called to ask Irvin: Is Divorce a sin and where in the Bible does it say so?
Answer: Yes it is! And there are many places in the Bible that mention this. Specifically in Matthew 19:3-9 Jesus clearly explains that it is. The Bible says that a husband should not put away his wife and a wife should not put away her husband but if they put them away because they just couldn’t live with them, the Bible says let them remain unmarried or be reconciled to their husbands and wives. If you notice in the Matthew reading, it says that there is one cause for divorce and that one cause is if one commits an affair.
