    Link: Church Says: Get Divorced? Go To Hell - The good news is, you`re divorcing your a-hole spouse. The bad news is you`re spending eternity with Satan.

    Oh how sad that some people are like this. A person`s relationship with God is between them and God, not the rest of the church body. They are forgetting "do not judge others for you will be judged likewise" or something like that.

    ..To be perfectly fair, it does seem that the recipient is a member of the church. They`re part of the same group. So what if his group members care about their rules?
    It`s like getting a letter from a gaming clan threatening to kick you out for hacks, then posting at saying "rofl, look at these geeks!".

    Not Mormon. For one thing, in addition to the references from the bible there would be references to the "Doctrine and Covenants", where matters of church policy and discipline are outlined. For another matter, it says the Village Church at the bottom.

    So, yeah, before saying something "Sounds Mormon" make sure there aren`t references to other faiths on the letter.

    Thank you, an LDS "Mormon" member of the IAB forums.

    @ duffytoler. Not necessarily true. I`m religious and I have never asked anyone to convert, repent or ever told someone they are sinners. I do not care what anyone else does with there life (aside from crimes aka murder/rape and so forth). I believe we where put here with free will so that we would choose our own path. My opinion on anyone`s choice is irrelevant.

    That`s why there is no true mention of "Marriage" In wiccan religion. We have a bonding. Means that people love each other, and when they feel that it would benefit BOTH of the people, one can leave, or they can come to a mutual agreement to disband the bond. Drating christians don`t respect others wishes at all ever.
    Ask any christian what should be done with the Witches and the Pagans.

    i like how time and time again its is GOD and his evil followers that condem people to bad things. Satan on the other hand promites free will which generally promotes hapiness. So when didd Hitler replace god? Also when did Ma Teresa replace Satan. The true evil here are the ones willing to condem someone to pain and sadness.

    Really? I would love to get a link to an article about how the evil John Paul II did this...

    Religion is far from perfect, and the Catholic Church has a lot of things wrong with it... But there`s no need to spread falsehoods. If you want to criticize religion, and the Catholic church, that is your right, but at least use facts and logical argumentation.

    No it`s not LDS. They refer in their letters always as Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. It`s the official designation used in reference officially always. The letter would also ask to present themselves to the Stake Presidency and Bishopric council involving disciplinary action.

    Second the church does not ex-communicate or discipline for divorce.

    "18 Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall abind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven."

    That binding thing..I think they interpret as in relation to marriage vows. Thus divorce a sin.

    This is ridiculous. My husband and I are avid "Christians". Not in the sense that most people associate us with. We follow Christ, not the group of the church, however we are the youth leaders of our church.
    It is not right that the church would threaten this couple and it certainly isn`t the congregation`s business about the couple`s choices and they shouldn`t be told what their relationship should be with these members. This church gives good, sane followers of Christ a bad name.

    I looked this up one time: I believe (correct me if I`m wrong) as far as the bible is concerned, the only way divorce isn`t a sin is if A) your spouse cheated on you or B) your spouse becomes a non-believer while you`re married to him/her. I say it this way because I believe if a Christian marries a non-believer they`re already sinning, according to bible technicality.

    HOWEVER, the bible also says you`re supposed to forgive people for their sins because that`s what God would do. So these people are in the wrong. The end.

    This doesn`t scream "Cult" to anyone?

    No more than religion normally does. Oh sure, it gets to be called a religion rather than a cult when it has enough followers, but it`s still the same thing.

    These people are enforcing the rules in their holy book and expelling members who don`t conform to them. If you allow freedom of religion, you must allow this sort of thing.

    If they got married in such a traditional Christian sect, they probably swore an oath before their god to be married until death, without any get-out clauses. In that case, their church shouldn`t approve of them divorcing - from the church`s point of view they have broken an oath witnessed by god. Why wouldn`t they expel someone who did such a serious thing?

    I`d never swear such an oath, because I don`t break my oaths. I wouldn`t risk having my life ruined by being bound to someone I`d come to hate, who was cheating on me or whatever.

    DrChocolate: Apparently I was wrong on the identity of the specific denomination, I`m just expressing that expelling a member of a church is not what most churches do.

    Churches that believe they get to choose who is in "the body of Christ" gall me, Once you name is written in the `book of life` it`s permanent. In my humble opinion, No church body can erase your salvation.

    It`s not a SS#. You dad found a membership record with their personal record number and ordinance dates for such as baptisms and confirmation and also priesthood ordinations.

    Instead of spreading false information go ask a Mormon and learn something about them and their church. What`s a matter are you afraid a missionary will knock on the door. Just tell them no.

    It all depends upon who starts what church by their revelation of interpretation. That`s why there is so many churches. Everyone interprets passages their own way. You join that church your abiding by their doctrine they have defined for themselves. Apparently all the Christian sects think they are the true and chosen church.

    Long time lurker, but this one finally pushed me to make a comment.

    Does that church (which is apparently in Illinois) realize that I Corinthians 5:1-5 is all about being a mother-lover? No joke. It`s about punishment for incest.

    So...one of two options: either the excommunicated member is totally wrong and the church is doing it right; or switch that around...

    just and extreme example of some literalist interpretation of a text that has been edited so much by humans to read it literally is an impossibly confusing and contradicting mistake.

    When I was 13 my mother and I got kicked out of the church of christ because she had a previous marriage. My stepdad got to stay though. I never really understood it, but I was pretty happy about not having to dress like Little House on the Prairie like the rest of those women.

    Churches shouldn`t be saying "we would treat you as an outsider". You shouldn`t be treating people as outsiders, everyone should be treated as a member, or what`s the point? Jesus welcomed everyone to listen to his message and fellowship, so if you insist on calling yourself a Christian, you need to do the same and follow Christ`s example. These people are getting caught up in following the letter of the law and not the spirit. This is sad.

    I actually looked up each of those bible verses and none of them seem to point to a specific "sin", just that it is the responsibility of those who are good to confront and help those who have sinned.

    While I am aware that the Catholic church does look poorly upon divorce, there is this thing called an annulment. Where if your divorce was for a valid reason (in the above mentioned reason for example, your husband was an a-hole and living with him was hell), the church then views it as if the union never happened.

    What to make of this letter, I couldn`t tell you, it sounds like a small village (as it says anyway) with a church of elders (Have never heard of a church with elders, but moving along...) Who are too caught up in their tiny society to realize that the 1600`s have come and gone, and the church no longer rules your life.

    LuckyDave...an annulment is not simply a divorce approved by the church. It`s for extreme cases that are considered to have rendered the entire marriage invalid, like finding out that your spouse is a close blood relative or that they decieved you in some manner to get you to marry them under false pretences...it`s not saying that the marriage is over, it`s saying that the marriage was invalid *at the time of the wedding*.

    So if you look up the Village Church, it says they`re affiliated with Baptists on their site. And they have elders.

    Which makes sense. Fundamentalists love their bible.

    People keep thinking that this church is based out of Texas. But there is no elder named "Donn" in that church. He`s the Elder at this "Village Church":

    http://www.vcbweb.org/345243.ihtml

    Donn is the dude on the right. Regardless, the scripture that they quote is about not sleeping with your father`s wife...which is kinda disturbing if you ask me...

    @panda_chaos-

    If everyone had a "real grip on reality" no one would preach or practice. Supernatural is synonymous with mythical.
