Why God Hates Divorce Malachi 2:13-16 1. Divorce

Why God Hates Divorce Malachi 2:13-16 1. Divorce Violates A Covenant A covenant is a solemn mutual agreement. A marriage is a covenant in which each spouse promises to take the other as an exclusive

companion. Gods marriage covenant is one man joined to one woman for life (Gen. 2:24; Rom. 7:2-3). Only one exception fornication (Matt. 19:9). 1. Divorce Violates A Covenant A divorce is an effort to go back on ones word, to

violate a solemn promise or agreement. God takes this very seriously. The Lord has been witness between you and the wife of your youth (v. 14). with whom you have dealt treacherously To act covertly, to be unfaithful, to be a traitor.

2. Divorce Attempts to Separate What God Has Joined Together did He not make them one (v. 15) and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh (Gen. 2:24) So then, they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let not

man separate (Matt. 19:6). That marriage bond still exists. A remarriage is adultery. 3. Divorce Destroys A Family He seeks godly offspring (v. 15) The family, which starts with a marriage, is the

institution God designed and created for the raising of children. The father and mother living together provide the stability for the children. This arrangement is the foundation upon which they build their lives, their

character, and their trust. 4. Divorce Brings Pain and Misery to Innocent Victims it covers ones garment with violence (v. 16) You cover the altar of the Lord with tears, with weeping and crying (v. 13)

For the Lord God of Israel says that He hates divorce (Mal. 2:16) Violates a covenant. Attempts to destroy what God has made. Destroys the stability, foundation children need. Does violence to innocent people.

For the Lord God of Israel says that He hates divorce (Mal. 2:16) Violates a covenant. Attempts to destroy what God has made. Destroys the stability, foundation children need. Does violence to innocent people.

Often results in adultery. Destroys the most basic building block of society. Brings sin and trouble into the Lords church. Will condemn souls to an eternal Hell.
