The Divorce and Remarriage Evil
The very first divinely sanctioned institution recognized by God was marriage. After God created man in His own image, He declared that it was not good for man to be alone. He then caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam. Taking a rib from Adam’s side, He then created woman.
Upon presentation of the woman, Adam declared, “…This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man” (Genesis 2:23). It is further declared: “Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh” (v. 24).
The institution of marriage, when performed by the proper authority is divinely sanctioned by God, and the man and woman are recognized as being one flesh so long as they both shall live.
