      George Mugadzaweta is my name. I initially applied to do DBS with ISDET. I went through all the application procedures after initial application. When I submitted all my last documents including applications from Fromm my two people, I was never replied. I lost all contact. I do not know why. You simply went mute and I upto now I am still waiting and hoping to receive a reply from you. I wonder whether it if the policy of ISDET not to respond to people from developing countries or not. Anyway, I have left everything in the hands of God Himself. If He wants me to do the studies I will get a reply from you. I He does not want, He will make you go mute. Amen

    I sent an initial application to you well over a week ago and have not gotten a response. I have sent further inquiries to the proper email address and gotten no reply. I was and am looking forward to pursuing further theological studies, but considering that I haven’t gotten anywhere, I’m wondering, frankly, if you people are really around. One would think answering an email would be a possibility.

  8. Allan Johansen says:

    Hello !

    I want to share some quotes with you from the early church fathers on the topic of the marriage covenant.

    The reason for this is that I recently was in a situation where I could initiate a relationship with a woman, long story short – she was what many protestants consider “The innocent part” (Im a protestant)

    I too was in that “bracket” that had these types of ideas about the innocent part that was made common in the reformation by Martin Luther and others

    So i prayed to God about it and i prayed something like this:

    ” if it comes down to it its likely that I enter into a relationship with this woman, Ive sincerely sought answers for years about the topic of marriage/remarriage and I am more convinced then ever before about “the innocent part” and that fornication is grounds for divorce AND remarriage, but I cast this on you God and may your will happen”

    Rather quickly after this I came across multiple preachers that saw the marriage covenant as unbreakable, and that only the death of one spouse allows for remarriage, they also often pointed to the early churchfathers and their views, which led me to see for myself what that actually was, and then I saw that they agreed 100% on the insolubility of the marriage covenant the first few centuries after the apostles.

    Take for instance Hermas who is the writer of “The shepherd of Hermas”, it is probable that it is the same Hermas that Paul mentions in Romans 16,14 , this was also claimed by Origen , one of the early “church fathers”

    “The sheperd of Hermas” was widely quoted by the early christians and his view on marriage is very clear : You can divorce your wife if you catch her being an adulteress, but if you marry someone else you too are an adulterer, and he says you are to live single and wait for her repentance. (similar to what Paul teaches)

    Now obviously “The church fathers” are not given us with the same authority as the Bible, but personally after judging them as objectively as I can I absolutely feel that they most likely carried on the unadulterated teachings of Jesus and the apostles even if there are some of them that says things that are worthy of critique, so when 100% of all the church fathers the first few hundred years after Christ practiced that the marriage covenant was unbreakable and that only the death of one spouse allowed for remarriage, then that is definitely worth looking into and ask yourself the question : “are certain things that are practiced today misinterpretations of scripture, because the early churches got these teachings from the apostles, seeing that non of them approves of remarriage.

    So what about the supposed “exception clause” in Matthew 19 ? To understand this I think its important to first understand a few things :

    We have at least seven clear verses pointing to the fact that Jesus wants to restore the original marriage that God instituted in the garden of eden, which clearly indicates a permanent covenant “flesh of my flesh ,bone of my bone” :

    1.19,4:“Haven’t you read,” he replied, “that at the beginning the Creator ‘made them male and female,’[a]and said, ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh’[b]?6So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate. 2

    2. Mark 10,4-9 : ” They said, “Moses permitted a man to write a certificate of divorce and send her away.”

    “It was because your hearts were hard that Moses wrote you this law,” Jesus replied. “But at the beginning of creation God ‘made them male and female.’[a] ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife,[b] and the two will become one flesh.’[c] So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.”

    3.Mark 10,10: “Anyone who divorces his wife and marries another commit adultery, and he that marries her who is divorced commit adultery”

    4.Luke 16,18:“Anyone who divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultery, and the man who marries a divorced woman commits adultery.

    5.Romans 7,1 :by law a married woman is bound to her husband as long as he is alive, but if her husband dies, she is released from the law that binds her to him

    6.1Cor 7,8:Now to the unmarried and the widows I say: It is good for them to stay unmarried, as I do.9But if they cannot control themselves, they should marry, for it is better to marry than to burn with passion.

    7.1Cor 7,39:A woman is bound to her husband as long as he lives. But if her husband dies, she is free to marry anyone she wishes, but he must belong to the Lord.

    So we clearly see that Jesus wants to restore the original marriage, but those who claim the “the exception clause” means you can remarry they claim that all the clear verses needs to be subordinate to Matthew 19,9 the ONE most unclear/ most disputed verse about marriage there is.

    In reality Matthew 19,9 was a clause for seperation if you look at how the earliest church saw it and if you take into account that the sum of the word of God is the truth , and the clear verses and the fact that it says “those who marries a divorced commit adultery” , you are still divorced even if you divorced for fornication, and that would makes it a seperation clause.

    Some bible teachers , like David Pawson believes that since matthew was written to the jews, the verses in matthew 5,32 and matthew 19,9 is in reality adressing matters of the law when it says that “fornication” is the acceptable reason for divorce , because the greek term for fornication is “porneia” and it most likely describes sexual sin outside of marriage , and the term for adultery is Moicheia , and this explicitily describes unfaithfullness towards your marriage spouse, this is idea is strengthened by the fact that Mark/Luke*/MAtthew – the synoptic gospels mentions alot of the same events, and it is highly likely that Mark10 describes the same event as MAtthew 19,9, but no clause is mentioned here , why is that ? Jesus could ve used the term Moicheia/Adultery , but he didnt , this means that this view is definitly plausible – that Jesus adresses matters of the law and the betrothal period /jewish culture at the time , and Joseph was called a just man when he wanted to divorce Mary during the betrothal period, for me its difficult to say if its the one or the other , but what i do know is that too much is pointing towards the marriage bond being unbreakable, and the case for it not being so simply doesnt hold water or is atleast uncertain since its based on ONE verse that is debated vs multiple other verses that are more straight forward.

    And with this view on Matthew 19,9 NOT being a remarriage clause- its no longer in conflict with all the rest of the verses I listed you that indicates an unbreakable covenant, now they align – if you consider that Matthew 19,9 is a separation clause or referring to betrothal period, and this might be why the disciples are shocked in Matthew 19,10, because you really have to count the cost before getting into a christian covenant marriage.

    It should be said that Martin Luther was the one that made common the views about “the innocent part” which he based on the catholic theologean Erasmus, who described himself as a humanist aswell, Martin Luther also taught ridiculous things like: if a man is impotent his wife can freely divorce him AND remarry , and if a woman does not fulfill her conjugal duties a man can freely divorce her and remarry, this is just ridiculous false teachings, and by doing so shows that he has zero clue about Gods view on covenants.

    Martin Luther also said “A dead jew is good jew” , further showing that he has no clue about the marriage covenant because God calls Israel His wife and He STILL hasn’t divorced after they killed all the prophets and Jesus and possibly several of the apostles and the first christians.

    So you dont say “A dead jew is a good jew” when talking about Gods covenant people, or any other people for that matter- this is the OPPOSITE of what Jesus teaches , namely to love your fellow man as yourself and forgive and pray for your enemies.

    So who do you believe, the churchfathers who were directly taught by the apostles, or Martin Luther ? For hundreds of years after christ they taught that the marriage covenant is for life.

    Jesus has purified us in His blood and given us clean wedding garments, if we defile it by living in unrepented sin we will perish, THAT is why its so important to not self-righteously “Self define” definitions of right and wrong in regards to marriage, and if theres ANY doubt about the topic of remarriage being allowed you shouldn’t play Russian roulette, but instead go for the safer option. God is a Holy God, i will also add a testimony of people seeing hell , that definitly can awaken slumbering christians , and that is sadly often needed today.

    And for those who leads Gods people astray and causes them to live in sin as adulterers the message is clear :

    Hebrews 13,4:

    Marriage is honorable in all, and the bed undefiled ,but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge

    I will add the link to the church fathers quotes on marriage so you can see for yourself, its a quick and very informative read.
