DC 401 - Week 3 - Divorce

We had some excellent discussion on liberty and legalism and this morning and now turn our attention to the topic of divorce. Needless to say, the fact - and it is a sad fact - that as many professing Christians get divorced as non-Christians has damaged the reputation of Christianity in our nation. We'll talk about that next week, but until then, here's how the workload might be broken down:

Monday - Read 1 Samuel 16-31 and comment
Tuesday - Read Psalms 52, 54, 56-57, and 59, and comment
Wednesday -
Read the article by David Instone-Brewer, "What God Has Joined," memorize Matthew 19:5-6 - "For this reason, a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh. So they are no longer two, but one. Therefore, what God has joined together, let man not separate." - and review previous memory verses, such as Galatians 5:1,13, Philippians 2:3, and Ephesians 5:25.
Thursday - Answer questions 1a-c (3 questions), and do the word study on divorce in question 2 (In other words, write your own lesson on divorce).
Friday - Answer questions 3a-g, 4a-b, and 5 (10 questions), and review memory verses.
