Beware of the Deception
| There is a prominent
money-raiser going about the brotherhood getting funds for mission work
who is devoted to a hobby about marriage. He sorely misrepresents others
with his "revision of the waiting game" charge. He has really
adopted a policy that God accepts a divorce simply because the courts say
it is a divorce. (He will not accept just any marriage that the courts
decree. Why does he demand we all accept a divorce simply because the
courts say so? His inconsistency is as glaring as his error.) God says
divorce can result only from fornication, but this "expert on
marriage" contends the courts determine a divorce, not God.
Faithful brethren will never let the courts decide such things. Our money-raising missionary has created division and strife among brethren, disfellowshipping even the most faithful of our century who contradict his papal edicts. To misrepresent others is a sin. To demand scriptural grounds for divorce is not Romanistic. Brethren, beware of such people. They are self-promoters and dividers of churches.
