Thanks to Craig Bennet, who responded to my previous post about divorce, by sending me the following link, to a VERY interesting theological article, by David Instone-Brewer, in Christianity Today, about the Biblical teaching on divorce. Like so many things, it's not the teaching I grew up with!! It confirms the gut feeling I and many others have had, that a God of justice and compassion could not possibly require people to stay in entrenched, hopeless, lifeless situations of any kind!
Anyway, for those who are interested: What God has Joined Together
I could say more... but right now I'm just ready to go and weep a few tears of relief!
Thanks, Craig - God sent your words at just the right time!!
