THE PRIVATE INVESTIGATOR I HIRED OBTAINED EVIDENCE OF HIS ADULTEROUS AFFAIR. DO I HAVE BIBLICAL GROUNDS TO DIVORCE HIM? I'M STRUGGLING TO BELIEVE, AND I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO. Read Transcript


Time for some emails.

Questions, questions.

Questions.

Let's bring it on.

All right.

This is Maria, who says, my husband of 26 years

has been having an affair with a coworker.

He is unremorseful.

He attended three therapy sessions

and then said he will not attend anymore.

The Christian therapist told me his emotions toward me

and our children have "flat lined".

When I try to talk with him about how his affair makes

me feel, he tells me I'm making a big deal over nothing.

The private investigator I hired obtained evidence

of his adulterous affair.

Do I have Biblical grounds to divorce him?

There's one ground that Jesus said divorce,

and that is adultery.

It's spelled out very clearly.

Paul also gave us what's called the Pauline privilege,

if the unbeliever is pleased to depart from a believer,

the believer is not bound under those cases.

I think there's such a thing as constructive desertion, where

people make it impossible, a spouse

makes it literally impossible to live with him or her.

And under those circumstances, it's like desertion.

But do you have a ground?

Absolutely.

Do you want a divorce?

That's your call.

But you don't have to subject--

I just say, God didn't intend to put us in prison.

Marriage is supposed to be a blessing.

And it isn't some locked in prison because

of some verse in the Bible.

I think marriage is supposed to be a relationship where

two people are as one, they become one flesh in the Lord,

they bring forth children, they live together and in unity.

And it's considered a blessing.

It's like heaven on earth.

If you've got hell on earth, I think

you got the wrong kind of marriage.

So OK.

OK.

This is Adelaide, Pat, who says, I'm

struggling to seek and find God.

I read my Bible every day and go to church twice a week.

I pray with my family and on my own.

The Bible says that God is self-evident, plain to all

to see.

I feel like I'm broken or that God doesn't want me.

Everyone else has amazing spiritual experiences

in church, but I feel like I'm just talking to myself.

I'm struggling to believe and I don't know what to do.

Look, God loves you.

I recommend you read the Bible.

And I recommend that you find a scripture.

I like that 103rd Psalm, but I want you to read it and say it.

And then I want you to read it and say it.

Then I want you to read it and say it.

And I want you to read it and say it

until it becomes a part of you, and then believe what it says.

And let that become a part of you,

then begin to live what is in the Bible.
