Don't Let A Snake Talk You into Divorcing

Jeremiah 3:20, “Surely as a wife treacherously departeth from her husband, so have ye dealt treacherously with me, O house of Israel, saith the LORD.”

Sadly, in 2012 after 25-years of happy marriage, Marie Schwarzenegger filed for divorce and called it quits. Despite showers of candy and flowers from Arnold, who didn't want the divorce, Marie had been poisoned by the snakes in her life. According to Arnold, “Maria's friends have done everything they can to poison the waters,“ imploring Maria to stay clear of him. This is exactly why so many marriages are ending in divorce, that is, because people are like deadly snakes, who go around in hypocrisy destroying other people's marriages and lives; yet they do not suffer any consequences themselves.

I am fully convinced that God in Heaven is going to severely punish anyone who contributes in the least way to causing a divorce (including ungodly greedy judges and lawyers). Jesus Christ warned in Matthew 7:2, “For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.” These vicious hypocrites who scrutinize other people's lives to justify a divorce, crucifying them over every sin they can find in the spouse, will be dealt with likewise on Judgment Day by God.
Arnold Schwarzenegger Resigned to Divorce
TMZ | April 11, 2012


Arnold Schwarzenegger would like Maria Shriver to take him back, but he's not holding out hope and is at peace with the likely end of his marriage ... sources very close to the actor tell TMZ.

As TMZ first reported, Maria has waffled on divorcing her hubby, partly because he still has a strong emotional hold on her and partly because divorce runs counter to her religion. But we're told as time passes and both Arnold and Maria have created separate lives, divorce is looking more certain.

We're told Arnold believes Maria's friends have done everything they can to poison the waters, imploring Maria to stay clear of him.

This is so typical of busy-bodies today who interfere in other people's business, minding what their neighbor is doing instead of minding their own children, home and marriage. People love to give unsought advice, destructive advice, based upon their own emotional anger and short-sighted solutions. Divorce, divorce, divorce is their answer for everything. Yet, they wouldn't want anyone meddling in their marriage, trying to convince their spouse to eat the forbidden fruit, and disobey God by filing for divorce.

God had made an agreement with the nation Israel, which He later broke off because of their rebellion, but God did not divorce His people. God divorced the nation of Israel. It was an agreement gone bad, a business deal fallen through. In sharp contrast, marriage is a commitment, not an agreement. Divorce is an agreement. Marriage is two people committing themselves to remain faithful to each other—'til death do us part. That means "for the rest of your life" in the Greek. I'm kidding about the Greek of course, but I am serious when I remind you that marriage is a lifetime commitment. All it takes to fall in love is a pulse, but to stay married requires a plan.

All it took was one malicious, little, snake to destroy Eve's life, ruin her future happiness, hurt her marriage and cause the downfall of the human race. Eve made the mistake of LISTENING TO OTHERS. My advice to anyone reading this article, especially you ladies, is to avoid seeking advice from people. This includes so-called Christian people, most of whom are as “Christian” as Judas Iscariot. If you want advice, seek it from a mother who's been faithfully married for 50-years. But still, she might give you bad advice. Your best bet is to SEARCH THE SCRIPTURES as Jesus commanded in John 5:39. What most people do is allow someone else to tell them what the Scripture teach, and they instead twist the Bible horribly to fit their agenda. It is evil.

I've had so many people ask me what are the biblical grounds for divorce. I immediately tell them that there are NONE! Jesus said in Matthew 19:8 that only by the hardness of one's heart does divorce occur. Jesus said in Matthew 18:22 to forgive not 7 times, but 7 times 70 (i.e., unlimited forgiveness). In divorce, a spouse is refusing to forgive even once. It is the ultimate act of self-righteousness. In filing for divorce a spouse is saying, “You are a bigger sinner than me; therefore, I have a right to abandon and divorce you.” You cannot show me that in the inspired Word of God. The Lord HATES divorce.

Marriage is for life—until death do us part. Anything less makes the departing spouse a fraud and a liar. Please don't let a snake ruin your life, as it did Eve's. The serpent was cunning, using the Bible to convince Eve to do evil. That's exactly what so many religious people do today, i.e., they corrupt the meaning of the Scriptures in an attempt to justify all sorts of sins: divorce, abortion, homosexuality, feminism, worldly music, pornography, stealing, killing, et cetera. They did the same thing in the Old Testament (Jeremiah 7:9-10).

The people who destroy your life go home to their spouse, move on with their normal life, and you likely won't hear from them ever again. That's the way the heathen world operates. They destroy families and then act innocent like they did nothing wrong. I guarantee you that the wicked people who talk you into filing for divorce, will ultimately go their merry way as did the snake in the Garden of Eden. Once the snake convinced Eve to eat the forbidden fruit, we never read about him again in the story. Likewise, well-meaning malicious people will ruin your life with bad advice if you let them, by taking their poisonous advice. Even the most wicked people sincerely think that their horrible advice is the right thing to do. Satan controls their mind. Ungodly daytime shows like The View and Oprah Winfrey are as wicked as hell.

Don't Seek Advice From Wicked People At Church

If you are going through a difficult time in your life, where do you turn for help? As a born-again Christian for 43 years, since I got saved in 1980 at age 13, I have learned very much. My humble advice to you dear reader, when you hit rock bottom in life, is to SEARCH THE SCRIPTURES! On a regular basis, I listen to fundamentalist Bible preaching even when things are going well in life, and the weather is fair. That way when the raging storms come, I have plenty of sermon truths laid up for the raining days.

I cannot warn you enough about churchgoers who give destructive advice, recommending a divorce. Women especially are vulnerable to wicked men and women at church, who hide behind religion to justify their meddling and hatred toward husbands who don't attend church with the wife. Since the people at church know the wife, but not her husband, they do everything in their power to help the wife leave her husband. That is as wicked as Hell. I have seen this happen so, so, many times.

A man's relationship with his wife supersedes the wife's relationship with her pastor and local church. Before God ever created children, He instituted the marriage relationship. Before God ever created the Church, He instituted the marriage relationship. Before God ever created human government, He instituted the marriage relationship. Your marriage trumps every other human relationship, even with your own family. The only thing that trumps one's marriage is our relationship with God. ...

Unfortunately, most people don't spiritually prepare for the dark times of life, so when they come suddenly without warning, those people are overwhelmed with grief and sorrow. Some commit suicide. Others turn to destructive vices like booze and drugs. I still feed in my soul from sermon truths that I learned from Dr. Jack Hyles 35 years ago. Whereas the Bible never changes, the world and society constantly change. In 1962 homosexuality was a punishable crime in all 50 states, but today it is legal in all 50 states. Sadly, in 2022 a Gallup Poll showed that 71% of Americans now approve of same-sex unions. America is spiraling down into the depths of Hell.

If you are married, you need to talk with each other as husband and wife, and make a plan for your marriage to survive. You need to not withhold secrets from each other. You should both set rules about not being alone with the opposite sex, people to whom you are not married. 

Adultery almost always starts with spending time alone with friends or co-workers of the opposite sex. No married person should ever engage in dirty talk, or discussion over intimacy in one's own marriage. It is shocking how lacking in common sense, decency and class people are concerning their own marriage. I have heard men in the workplace talk about what they do with their wife in bed. That is as wicked as hell. The marriage bed is sacred and holy in God's sight. Hebrews 13:4, “Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.”

Guard your marriage dear reader! No married man should allow other women to flirt and spend time with him. No married woman should ever allow any man other than her husband to touch her, not even on the shoulder. Ungodly men will test a woman, testing the perimeters. If she allow him to touch her, those hands and fingers will creep lower and lower. Just say, “Please do not touch me again.” If he does, it is sexual harassment, and you should file a police report. Our modern adulterous society is sickening!!! You need to let other people know how far YOU WON'T GO!!! All men are sex pigs, don't forget that ladies. Dr. Hyles used to say in response to people who criticized his preaching against immodestly clothed women: “Brother Hyles, you have a dirty mind. No, I have a man's mind.” That is a great answer!

Always Protect Your Marriage

Protect your marriage! That is what we are talking about here. Don't listen to the counsel of the ungodly. Psalms 1:1, “Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.” I cannot warn you enough dear friend to avoid receiving ungodly counsel. Christians ought not seek advice from secular psychologists. A psychiatrist is okay if you need medications to cope with a mental disorder.

Christian youth ought never attend a secular university, where the lies of evolution, humanism, communism, socialism, sex perversion and atheism are taught. My favorite Bible verse is Proverbs 4:23, “Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.” This is why you ought not listen to some cackling divorced hen, or some single woman who is not even married yet, or someone who is living a sinful lifestyle of fornication—encourage you to file for divorce. If you want advice, go seek advice from a Christian woman who is still happily married after 30 or 40 years, and she has successfully raised 4 or 5 children of her own. That is the kind of woman you should seek advice from, not a feminist woman who is divorced. Bad advice is like cancer—it spreads and kills everything that it comes into contact with.

I sincerely care about people. Please be careful, especially you ladies, whom the Bible teaches is the “weaker vessel” (1st Peter 3:7). Divorce is a sin that perpetuates for a lifetime! The grass only seems greener on the other side of the fence. You should start planting grass in your own yard. In divorce and remarriage, you are only exchanging one set of problems for another set of problems.

There are exceptions of course, where people who have divorced and remarried say they were much happier and better off in their second marriage. Only God knows if that is true, but it doesn't change the fact that Jesus said God never intended for divorce to happen. Matthew 19:8, “He saith unto them, Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not so. There is just something honorable and beautiful about hanging in there, with the resolve and determination to never get divorced.

I remember when I attended the First Baptist Church of Hammond. A young married couple were having serious marital problems. In fact, things were so bad that the husband sat on one side of the church auditorium, and his wife sat on the other side of the church auditorium. I remember Dr. Hyles praising and commending them, without pointing them out or mentioning their names, saying how proud he was of them for hanging in there and not divorcing. Ladies and gentlemen, we need that kind of commitment in our marriages once again, where couple vow to rather die than get divorced.

It is sad and tragic that American society has adopted the insane mentality that divorce is the only answer to our marriage problem. And locking people up in prison is the only answer for school truancy, drug addiction and mental illness. We've lost our minds in the United States. We allow our government to give away tens of billions of dollars each year to foreign countries, while we won't even house our own citizens who are homeless on the streets across our nation. Charity must begin at home, not abroad. Our ridiculous and incompetent federal government spends 6.6 trillion dollars each year, and in 2022 gave 24 billion dollars just to NASA. In 2023 NASA is getting another 25.4 billion dollars.

Dear reader, divorce is NEVER the solution. Killing your marriage is what the Devil wants, not what God wants. No marriage can be destroyed from without. Wicked men may separate a husband and wife (e.g., by war or some manmade crisis), but that marriage is still holy ground and completely valid in God's sight, until one spouse dies. No marriage can be destroyed from without. A marriage can only be destroyed from within. A marriage is two people making a life for each other, and never giving up on each other.

It is hard for me to understand how anyone can divorce their spouse of 20, 30, 40 or more years! It is so sad and unnecessary. Dear Sir, marriage is about being committed to God, to love your wife at all times, especially when she is difficult and crazy. Dear Miss, marriage is about being committed to God, to obey your husband at all times, especially when you disagree with him. God didn't command the husband to lead his wife; but rather, to LOVE her! If you truly love her, she will follow and obey you.

Interesting, God doesn't command you ladies to love your husband; but rather, He commands you to SUBMIT to your man. God knew exactly what He was doing when He created men and women. If you want your husband to love you, then obey him; if you want your wife to obey you, then love her. Guard your marriage. Be alert for attacks upon your marriage. Watch out men for that flirtatious woman. Be alert ladies for that flirtatious man.

And may I saw, I humbly don't believe that a wife should work in a secular workplace, where there is much temptation. I can tell you sad story after story about working wives who ran off with some bum at work. In one tragic true news story, a wicked man at worked seduced a married woman with his charms and kindness. She fell in love with him and they began a sinful adulterous affair. When the husband learned about it, he murdered his wife and went to prison for life. The children went to live with the grandparents. The ungodly adulterer at work walked away Scot-free. I think he should be in prison too, for life. Adultery always starts with wrong thinking. So guard your mind dear friend. Colossians 3:1-3 says to set your affection upon the things of Heaven, not earth.
