Does God condone remarriage?
What thoughts on this would you like to share with God?
its always interesting that most of the people see god in the form of human. i also think that a dog must be imagining the god in a dog and an elephant as an elephant.
for me god is omnipotent , omnipresent, omniscient .
the concept of god to me is that god is anadi and anant . He(she)does not have a beginning present ever since and will be in future. He present everywhere as He(for the sake of convenience) is infinite. we all are parts of the god as the entire universe is a part of the god. to me to see the god in any one embodiment like for example a person is creating limitations to the god.
so i think that the question is social . and god does not interfere with this. let me ask you another question does HE approves remarriage in dogs or elephants or does HE have different standards for human. does HE love humans more than the dogs.any preference if it does have in your mind fetches the quality of "bias" adhered to the god.
now i think you can decide through your own logic.
I noticed that you have been asking many questions about what God condones.
As wisely stated by "multifunctions" God is omnipotent, omnipresent and omniscient.
This means if God does not condone it will not and cannot happen. Everything, even evil happens because God has permitted it. This is how powerful God is.
God has given man free will. That mean man is free to do what he wants to do with the available choices. Since God gives free choice it also means he will not punished you. Otherwise, it is not a free choice.
However, be advised God will allow you to experience the natural consequences of this free choice. For example you could use fire to cook and keep you warm. He also gave you the choice of using fire to hurt yourself. If you get hurt by that fire, it is not God that is punishing you, but it simply the consequence of your choice. What is the point of these choices if you don't bear the consequences? God will always allow you to experience the consequences of your creation. This is part of his divine plan for us.
God has written the rules for natural consequences for both the physical and spiritual universe. There are consequences to every action or choice you make. You may call some consequences good and others bad. God provides the choices and its natural consequences.
God, you and your neighbor are related in a very special way. Jesus understood this grand relationship. I will not go into this now. When Jesus suggested love your neighbor as you love yourself, he was aware of these profound implications caused by this relationship.
That statement put forward by Jesus is not a feel-good statement or simply to preserve order in society. But what you should know is that what you do to you neighbor will come back to you. So if you don't like something or its natural consequence don't do it to others.
So let us go to your questions now. If you think re-marriage will give your partner joy and love. Then you will also receive them. If you feel divorce will give your partner peace then be prepared to receive a divorce that will give you that peace. If you give your partner or others pain, be prepared to receive that to. If you give joy to others you will also receive it.
God is simply taking a backseat and observing your choices and watching its consequences.
The grand illusion is what you do to others will not affect you.
You see, Jesus was not only thinking of about your neighbor. He was thinking about you.
No, and divorce is only allowed if there is infidelity
But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causes her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced commits adultery.
And as far as the other person's statement. If God does not condone it then it won't happen?
Murdering children happens but it is not condoned by God. Condone means to accept and support something. Since God doesn't accept it, we will reap what we sow, at the judgment.
We were given free will to do what what we want. We have choice. We were given dominion of the world. Doesn't mean God approves of what we have done with it.
Free will, means no one steps in to stop what we choose to do. Otherwise it would not be free will.

Why should anyone go to hell?It's not our fault as human beings. We are all in the same boat called HELPLESS. What we do in life, on this planet, is a totally different matter altogether but finally it's not our fault.

I'll pick up on this thread where I left off in the last, but on a new topic. The last one was about a flaw in Christian theology, namely, the impossible definition of God. This one is about protective coloring in the Christian mentality; a smokescreen; the corrupt use of misdirection,...
