Dating married women going through divorce
) It is affirming to hear that others do read Scripture the same way.However, It has been disheartening, and even spiritually challenging to know that, in the particular situation I am referring to, the leadership of the CMA church has not only been told that the person is not divorced, continues to allow the person/s to serve and is ignoring the obvious dating, in church.Secret sin can be well hidden from many, even leadership.There are too many current stories circulating in the past year to confirm this truth.( In my situation, the marriage was very abusive, and resulted in immoral, deviant behaviors and an unrepentant spouse.It would have been dangerous to myself and children to remain in the circumstances.
