That’s the only way I can explain it.
Over the past few years he has gotten more and more “out there” with his predictions and his statements but now he has gone and forgotten completely about what the bible says about marriage.
Hear for yourself (at least the first 2 minutes):
What about the whole “Till death do us part” ?
That was my first reaction, and then I just got angry from there on.
I have heard a lot about this from different people in the past two days but by far I would like for you to consider the words of Joni Earekson Tada:
“Any marriage has its challenges, but add a serious disability and they can, at times, seem overwhelming. This is why God instituted marriage as a lifelong commitment – Heaven knows it requires vows, solemn and serious, to weather a couple through the demands of disability.”
“I was dismayed when this week Pat Robertson said to a nationwide audience that Alzheimer’s disease is a kind of death that makes divorce justifiable. When a Christian leader views marriage on a sliding scale, what does this say to the millions of couples who must deal daily with catastrophic injuries and illnesses?”
“At the Joni and Friends International Disability Center, we encounter thousands of couples who, despite living with serious disabling conditions, showcase the grace of God in their weakness every day. Marriage is designed to be a picture of God’s sacrificial love for us. Alzheimer’s disease is never an ‘accident’ in a marriage; it falls under the purview of God’s sovereignty. In the case of someone with Alzheimer’s, this means God’s unconditional and sacrificial love has an opportunity to be even more gloriously displayed in a life together!”
Thank you Joni! I could go on about this but I think she sums it up well.
