Matthew 19:6 Forbids Divorce Itself (Even Without Remarriage)

Some people say God allows divorce as long as you don’t get remarried, but notice Matthew 19 …

verse 3 Question: "Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife for every cause?"

So the original question pertains only to divorce, not to remarriage.

verse 6 Answer: "What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder."

Jesus’ answer is NO!

What is your answer?

verse 9 "And" – Jesus goes on to say what additional sin is committed if a person remarries after committing the sin of divorce.

Conclusion: Divorce (except for fornication) is a sin by itself, and remarriage after such divorce constitutes the additional sin of adultery.
