Paul put it this way: “A wife must not separate from her husband. But if she does, she must remain unmarried or else be reconciled to her husband. And a husband must not divorce his wife.”
The United Methodist Church declares some marriages are broken beyond repair and that divorce does not preclude remarriage.
I’ve been working with this for 10 months and still don’t see how what we in the UMC hold as a social principle is compatible with Paul or Jesus. I am at a loss.
