101 Bible Questions – Part 10

Can Christians get divorced? Are they allowed to get remarried? What about the role of women in church? In this message from my “101 Bible Questions” series, I dive deep into these topics, shedding light on Biblical truths that have often been misunderstood or overlooked.

We’ll explore the true meaning of the word “divorce” in 1 Corinthians 7 and how the context of the Sermon on the Mount helps us interpret Jesus’ teachings on remarriage.

Don’t miss out on this eye-opening message that may challenge you to see these topics through the lens of God’s impartiality and grace!
