This Wednesday Pastor Joe Schimmel continues with a study on part 3 of why God Hates Divorce. He does permit divorce in the case of “sexual immorality and abandonment” although the husband and wife should strive for reconciliation.

Malachi 2:16 (NASB)
For I hate divorce,” says the Lord, the God of Israel, “and him who covers his garment with wrong,” says the Lord of hosts. “So take heed to your spirit, that you do not deal treacherously.”
