  1. Thanks
    AVBibleBeliever got a reaction from Galations 2:20 in Can A Pastor Get Remarried If His Wife....   
    what would we do with verses like this one:
     
    Mt 5:32 But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery.
     
    Is it only applicable to Israel?
     
    Someone above asked when a person was blameless.  Would this indicate when:
     
    Eph 1:4 According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:
     
    I would agree that if she left him that there was something not right in their relationship.  But unless we know every detail of that relationship we could not make a correct judgement on it.  So without complete knowledge I would say the pastor should step down and submit to another leader for a time before being reinstated to a leadership possition of any kind.
     
    If we knew this man never neglected or abused his wife that may influence a judgement.  But then again if she had time to carry on with another then it would seem she was neglected.
     
    Pastors, be sure you don't neglect your families because of ministry.  This is the cause of things like this and in that case the Pastor is not blameless.  He needs to seek forgiveness from his wife and children for this neglect.
