Does Christ permit divorce and remarriage?
Studies commonly report that the divorce rate among committed Christians who attend church regularly is around 40 percent.
How these numbers compare to the number of non-Christian marriages that end in divorce is perhaps less relevant. A more significant question might be whether Christ permits his followers to divorce or remarry.
Well-known pastor and theologian John Piper teaches that Christ did not intend to allow Christians to divorce and marry someone else while their first spouse remains alive. Given
New Testament condemnations of adultery, it is important for Christians to seriously consider these questions. Did Jesus permit divorce and remarriage among his followers?
