Opinions differ after clergyman, Kingsley Okonkwo, dismissed claims that Jesus is against divorced people remarrying

After priest and relationship specialist Kingsley Okonkwo said that Jesus is not against divorced people getting remarried, social media users have differing viewpoints.

Pastor Okonkwo recently mentioned during a sermon that he doesn’t know where people get the idea that Jesus is against divorced people remarrying. He claims that Jesus simply forbids divorced spouses from remarrying, but if they are totally divorced, they are permitted to do so.

”Jesus never said you can’t remarry when you are divorced. I don’t know where people even got it from. So what confuses people is that Jesus said if you put away your wife and you go and remarry, you are committing adultery

There is putting away and there is what is call giving a bill of divorcement. Putting away is separation. Giving a bill of divorcement is the proper divorce. When you are seperated you are not divorced. Some couple separate so they can work on the marriage. Some times they come together.

In counselling we call it controlled separation, so you are separated but working with a counsellor.

Separation is not divorce. You can separate and come back. When you are separated, you can’t go and remarry. That is what Jesus means that when you separate and go and remarry you are committing adultery because you are not divorced and if you go and marry somebody that is just separated and divorced, you are also committing adultery because the person is not preperly divorced. That is what it means. 

The bible is clear that once you divorce someone you can remarry”

While some of his followers agreed with his explanation, others are against it as they opined that Jesus is against divorce.
