Jesus decides to avoid the controversy by giving three reasons why people need to remained married.
Here are the reasons in detail:
- God made one male and one female. If God wanted Adam to have more than one wife, he would’ve created another one. The same goes for Eve.
- God ordained marriage as the strongest bond in all human relationships. A man leaves his parents and is joined to his wife. The word “leave” means to abandon and the words “joined to” means to be glued to.
- The two become one flesh. Marriage is a contract or covenant, part of the covenant is physical intimacy.
Jesus made it clear that Moses never commanded divorce and Gods original plan was for marriage to never part.
This is an open discussion, feel free to leave a comment or question.
