Living the Rest of Our Lives in Sin

I was the one who decided to divorce my husband. I got married at 17 years old and he was 26 years old. We have a 13 yr old son and a 10 yr old daughter. We were married 14 years. I can remember since day 1 we started having difficulties. All those 14 yrs were very rocky. To be honest I was unfaithful to him due to the lack of love, time, devotion and attention towards my kids and I from his part. Without planning on it, during this infidelity I came out pregnant. My partner and I do plan on staying and making a life together. What really scares me is that now my pastor says I cant remarry because of my infidelity. That if I do both my partner and I would be living the rest of our lives in sin. Is this true???

Yes, your pastor is absoloutely right, i’m sorry. Pray and talk to God about this situation that has incurred. The Bible is clear about infidelity.

I think we should all remember that infidelity is a sin that is like any other in that it can be forgiven (with true repentance). With the example of the woman caught in adultery when Christ asked her where her accusers were, “She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more” The Lord did not say she had not sinned, but forgave her and admonished her to “sin no more.”. Hebrews 10:17 says, “And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.” I’m not condoning this, but I would like to make the point that forgiveness can be obtained…along with a clean slate.

Yes, forgiveness can be obtained…but does it give permission for remarriage? I would like to know this answer. I’m confused. I’m scared if I remarry then I will live in sin.

I think what it really comes down to is that God forgives sin. I really don’t know exactly how the remarriage works if you are the one that left the marriage. Obviously there will be consequences. Maybe a pastor could best answer this.

Kassidy,
I am not a pastor, nor do I play one on TV, and I didn’t stay at a Holiday Inn last night, but one thing that I KNOW from life experience is that God is a God of second chances. My personal opinon, is that if TRUE repentance is obtained, and you start with a clean slate, putting God first above all things (even your new “significant other”) then you can re-marry. When God said that it is not good for man to be alone, he meant it. Also, we can look at the adulterous woman that was about to be stoned by her accusers. Jesus didn’t tell her do and re-marry no more, he said go and sin no more. Forgiveness means that, to God, the sin is removed as far as the east is from the west to me remembered no more. Its a BEAUTIFUL thing!!! Thank you Jesus!!!
