Why keep blogging about taking adultery seriously? - Divorce Minister

Skip to content

He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.

-Micah 6:8, NIV

That need is still there. I see this over and over, again. Just as I am contemplating shutting down the blog, I see a spike in views or get a message from someone who desperately needs pastoral counsel. Then I am reminded that God is still using this blog ministry.

Sadly, I am convinced the Church needs to be reminded to take adultery seriously. It is an oddly controversial stance.

People in the church tend to assume a pastor will always push a miracle narrative of keeping marriages together. I am not such a pastor. A godly stance of taking adultery seriously often dictates divorce.

The fact my stance is so controversial still is an argument to continue blogging. Hurting faithful spouses need to hear this from a pastor. They need to know that God loves them and does not tolerate their abuse.

So, I will continue to blog. The call to continue this ministry has not ended even if the digital world has mostly moved on from blogs.
