Discussion God, Marriage, and MLC
« on: August 15, 2019, 06:06:47 PM »
This question is only for those who Believe.

When someone gets "remarried", where do you suppose God is?  Certainly not at their faux "wedding", right?

And does He take their actions as a personal affront to Him?  Because I find it reprehensible, and can only imagine that God would, too.

Just wondering what others' thoughts are, if any.

God is everywhere, Mego.

"From my experience if my H had let me go a long time ago, and stop pressuring me, begging, and pleading and just let go I possibly would have experienced my awakening sooner than I did."

Isn't that quite obvious what she means?

My not very profound thoughts fwiw.
I don't know, mego.
I guess the more important question maybe is do I believe that God knows when I don't.
That there is a purpose I can't see, that God is working to create good from chaos and darkness and the effects of free will.
And do I believe it enough to trust it.
And I don't know. Sometimes, yes, sometimes not so much.

What I do believe though with rather less doubt is that God is with us in our suffering and really wants us to try as hard as we can to find some kind of peace and redemption for ourselves.
And that God is Love...a bigger more complicated thing than love.

Well, I have never seen someone capitalize the word in the middle of a sentence, even in reference to God. It is obvious she is referring to God, but I was wondering if she was referring to a subset of people within that group because perhaps there is a specific denomination who capitalizes that word.

No there isn't, it just seemed appropriate, keeping in line with the fact that God is always capitalized (i.e., "Him"). 

I could have been wrong.

So do I.

I just can't help but wonder what was running through His mind as they said their vows, in a place dedicated to serving Him.  Was He offended, because they'd promised the EXACT SAME THING before?  For that matter, what was running through the minds of all his guests - most of whom were at OUR wedding?

I have never attended a "remarriage."  (Well my aunt's, but I was so young when she'd originally married, I didn't care.)

I can only imagine how I'd feel.  Would I want to stand up and yell, "Hey, you're both frauds, because you said all that BEFORE!"

I just pray that I'm never invited to one.  Because their hypocrisy is STAGGERING.
