15 Minutes of Fame....And a Request for Your Input.
Judge Greg Mathis. I would have to say that this is the reality show judge (and I use the term Judge loosely) that dredges in the lowest of the lowest in "court" cases.
(OK, stop right there. In court I believe the correct way to address the judge is Your Honor, Sir, or even Judge Mathis, but not just Judge....at least not in Virginia. Things may be different in Detroit or California).
Plaintiff- "Judge, I was in love with the defendant. She was a wonderful woman. We both have strong Christian values. We felt a strong attraction but we abstained from any sort of "physical relationship" (I changed his exact wording there) because of our relationship with God."
"We got married in about a year and things went fine for a while but then she started to have problems with my use of Crack.".
Judge- "Let me get this straight. Your Christian values prevented you from a physical relationship (yes,Ii changed the wording again), but you had no problem passing around the Crack Pipe?".
blah blah blah blah blah
Plaintiff- "We ended up getting divorced but we are still friends and still have a physical relationship.".
blah blah blah blah
ok, here's my question. I would love to receive your comments on this from a Biblical view.
First of all, obviously the Bible makes no secret of the laws of God regarding pre-marital sex. no question there.
I am not as well versed with my Bible as many of you. I know there are negative verses regarding drinking and I believe there are negative verses regarding certain drugs.
Question- Although it is illegal, immoral, dangerous and wrong....is smoking crack a sin?
STOP RIGHT THERE! I am in no way considering taking up such a habit....(had to get that straight immediately). I am just curious and I know that there are quite a few of my readers that will have much more insight on this than I do.
Question- I know the Bible frowns on divorce but is it a sin? (Quick Thank You God For Forgiveness). Also, what about having a physical relationship with the EX, AFTER the divorce? ALSO, if divorce IS a sin, then would a physical relationship, with an ex, still be considered being with your husband or wife?
Question- If you remarry, are you committing adultery?
I'm pretty sure (though not completely sure....because I am seldom completely sure on anything), that some of this isn't addressed in the Bible so I'm just wondering your opinions. Although Bible verses to back it up are great too.
AGAIN, I'm not going this route...really, (REALLY, REALLY, REALLY). I'm just curious.
I would love your input.
After all, Monkeys Can't ALWAYS be Funny. Sometimes they are just curious.
(Good thing Cats aren't funny. You know what curiously does to them!).
