Can A Christian Couple Used "irreconcilable differences" As An Excuse For Divorce????


Reader sadly divorce has become a trend among the Christian community. One of my anonymous readers dropped the below information under a post that I had written about this young man last year.  It looks like Mr. Rogers is now contemplating walking out on his wife because she does not share his beliefs.  There are only a few reasons God allows divorce and from this young man's post, it's unclear if this situation meets these requirements. If a nonbelieving spouse wants a divorce that's another thing. What yall think?

    1. "And Jesus answered and said unto them, For the hardness of your heart he wrote you this precept. But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female. For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife; And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder. And in the house his disciples asked him again of the same matter. And he saith unto them, Whosoever shall put away his wife, and marry another, committeth adultery against her. And if a woman shall put away her husband, and be married to another, she committeth adultery. Mark 10:5-12

    2. What's the big deal? Moses left his wife and sons behind to lead the people of God to the promise land.. They were in the desert for 40 years. Many are the plans of man but God's will prevails! From birth he was chosen and he completed his purpose regardless of his life choices in between! Only God knows the plans for each person! We all have opinions but ONLY God has answers to our lives! I pray God lead them both in His divine direction and His will be done!

    3. Ms. Ann I been following this young man on Facebook for a while now, all I got to say is I don't trust him and he's full of himself.

    4. @ FB anonymous,

      This is my first time I read Rogers' post and I thought the same (full of himself).

      Discernment is truly needed in such times as this.

      @ Moses left his wife anonymous,

      Moses did send Zippora back to her father at some point. And Jethro, Moses' father-in-law brought them back to him (Exodus 18). The keyword here is divorce. Moses didn't divorce his wife.

  2. Miss Ann,

    When mortal man says he made an agreement with God yet even the Son of God couldn't bring himself to say such - that's a RED flag waving high in the summer winds.

    Jesus lived in obedience to the precepts of God (John 5:19, 30, John 12:49), Rogers doesn't display this. There is no humility in him (1 Peter 5:6-7).

    He talks about God, but doesn't mention the Name above ALL names.

    Though he talks of "many mistakes", there's no talk of repentance.

    God calls us to be obedient to him. Any believer knows that. Rogers ain't special. All he needs is to get rid of his pride, read the bible (I noticed he didn't even quote scripture), and learn to live according to God's commandments (Psalm 119).

    Rogers quotes Amos 3:3 but it is out of context. Marriage is a different ball game. "Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word... So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; bit nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church:" (Ephesians 5:25-29). It sounds like it was either his way or the high way. And the lady chose the latter.

    And finally, Rogers should not walk according to his feelings for therein lies sin (Romans 7:25).

  3. It's terrible to hear from a leader with so much to say about the Bible...unbelievably sad. He just gave a lot of people discouragement and loss of hope in there marriages. Another Christian divorce in the church. He shouldn't divorce and I beleive he can't remarry or it's adultery. Maybe he should spend less time on FB and more time with his wife and not quitting on her. I would love to her her side of the story because there's always more to the story but good luck hope it works out for him but mostly his wife finds a man to love her no matter what and not give up on a lifetime commitment you honored before God.

    1. So what if she does find someone else to love her and that ends the same way. When does it stop? Sounds like the world...romanticized bull to me and a mockery of God's ordained institution.

    2. YOU are 100 Ljboogey. She is not to remarry either.

      Annie Lee wants to hear her side of the story. For what? So his wife can bash the man even more, and not tell her part in the breakup?

      It's obvious this dude is unbiblical. However her role was to be submissive to her own husband, and to obey him. I bet she like most women had a problem with this command of the LORD. I don't need to hear her story. I already know she will say she was emotionally abused and so forth and so on.

      A wise woman builds a home. She should bring good to her husband all her days. So let's not look at her as a victim, because she is as adult who when she married, was called to leave her father and mother, and cleave to her husband.

      It's obvious he was not perfect. SHE WAS NOT PERFECT EITHER!

  4. Family first is the #1 ministry. People want to put ministry first but when Gods design for us humans isnt reflected according to the word of God, then the blessings and the impact will NOT flow. PERIOD. You can post and post and post Jesus day and night, but if your personal life isnt reflecting what you zealously PREACH, then your whitness isnt effective.

  5. I understand what he and his wife must be going through a very difficult time at the moment, and I pray that the Lord be with them both through it all. However, I have to remind believers that the Lord commands in the Bible that a man is not to divorce his wife for any reason except sexual immorality. The Lord also says that if a man divorces his wife for any reason except sexual immorality, he causes her to commit adultery. Even if his wife is not willing to support his work for the Lord or doesn't have the same faith as he the Bible says that he should not divorce her, unless she herself departs from him (her choice, not yours). He needs consider this seriously, and may the Lord help him and guide him always.

  6. He will leave this woman, find a girlfriend and marry her, and rationalize his actions using I Corinthians 5:7 (" But if the unbelieving depart, let him depart. A brother or a sister is not under bondage in such cases: but God hath called us to peace.). He already misapplied Amos 3:3 to base his "divorce".

    And he calls himself a minister, butchering the WORD of God to satisfy his lust.
    The BIBLE talks so clearly about these fools. "For the vile person will speak villany, and his heart will work iniquity, to practise hypocrisy, and to utter error against the Lord, to make empty the soul of the hungry, and he will cause the drink of the thirsty to fail."

  7. The Internet Preacher:Tuesday, 22 August, 2017

    Boy go sit down somewhere with your arrogant and puffed up self. Your marriage ministry is a more important covenant than any other ministry, period. And divorce should disqualifies you from pastoring. If you want to stay right with God, you should put everything else away and save your marriage. He's not going to call you somewhere and have you leave your wife and children behind.

    1. He called Moses to the promised land. Keturah and Moses two children were left behind with Jethro and his wife!

    2. @ anonymous,

      It is imperative that we get to read and understand the WORD of God. This helps us to get things right.

      Keturah was Abraham's second wife after Sarah his first wife died (Genesis 25 & 1 Chronicles 1:32-34).

      Moses led the Israelites out of captivity but didn't go over Jordan to the promised land (Deuteronomy 1:37, 32:52).

      Jethro, Moses' father-in-law, brought Zipporah, Moses' wife, and his sons to Moses in the desert (Exodus 18).

      Moses took heat from Miriam and Aaron for his wife Zipporah who was Ethiopian (Numbers 12).

    3. I realized I had the wrong name wrong last night. Zipporah not Ketubah. Anything else?

  8. Internet Preacher, correct. Get Outta here, correct. Wisdom would say he should have carefully examined his family life, marriage and where he was headed as far as ministry BEFORE going so "deep" into teaching and content on FB.
    Don't follow him closely, bit did see that he received a phone call from his father whom he hadn't spoken to since he was 7.
    I admire his zeal for God, but walk awhile before diving into daily teachings. And to add to that, everyone who has ability to teach, is not called to lead.
    *Sidenote* I notice a trend that when certain ministries/christian personalities "growth" (read popularity) flattens/goes stagnant, then there is a dramatic "crisis" or revealing of a "brokeness" that will freshen things up and bring new eyes ($) to their endeavors.

  10. When you're a Christian towards everybody else but your family, in my opinion you are a fake.

  11. We dont agree on the direction of MY life. (Mmm, keyword "my"...bruh its not about you anymore. Lets start using more words like "we" or "us" when referring to life and marriage)

    Where I am going I am going alone. (There goes that "I" word again...)

    My ministry was literally born in these problems (When your called of God bruh, you dont get to use the word "My" anymore when it comes to the call of God on your life....its not about you..I thought you knew that)

    It just never came together how I wanted to (ok bruh, still using the word "I" when referring to your marriage....Im starting to see a pattern here)

    I will be going alone (hey bruh, no you wont be alone..you got kids....looks like you are still going to have to learn to start using words like "we" and "us")

    I dont care what anyone thinks about it (ok your in your feelings big time....you should care.....you are Christ representative on earth to over 400,000+ facebook followers and then some...you should care)

    My analysis on this is
    a. Your still young and inexperienced
    b. You haven't truly submitted yourself to godly council
    c. You need to withdraw yourself from the 399,999 women that follow you on Facebook (just taking a wild guess)
    d. You need to do some major studying on 1 Timothy 3:4-5 which talks about a man managing his own house.
    e. Did I say get off Facebook??? I forget

    Honestly Im sad that this is the route he is going to take. Bottom line, if he does divorce he needs to remain single unless he and his wife reconcile and since with God all things are possible, you reconciliation is possible.

    Just my thoughts......

    1. Great analysis @ Christian Pentecostal.

      He truly does need to grow up.

      I watched 3 mins of one of his YouTube videos. He dunked his head in a water tank, came up gasping for air then started preaching on the need for Christians to need God more than their next breath.

      With my eyes rolled back, I switched off.
