Divorce today 

Question: Dear Jesus, in the book “Gospel for Busy People” there is your statement about divorce (This is from the scriptures). It has been said: “Whoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorcement. But I say unto you that whoever shall put away his wife saving for the cause of fornication causes her to commit adultery. And whoever shall marry her that is divorced committed adultery.” Recently a member of my family in the United States converted to Catholicism, according to him the original true one and as a result of an inner revelation. His church forbids him from spending the night with his divorced parents and their new partners under the same roof. In practice this means that he cannot visit or host parents with their new partners. Would you like to comment on this situation?

Answer from the Ascended Master Jesus through Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2023 Korean Conference.

Well, the quote from the scriptures was given 2,000 years ago in a very different culture and time where a woman who had been divorced often would become destitute and had no way to sustain herself. Therefore, there was a more practical measure to maintain the marriage for life and that is why there was this statement against divorce. In today’s age this has been transcended and as you will see most people in the more evolved part of the world have more than one relationship during their lifetime. This is because growth has been accelerated so people can attain more growth by being with different partners. It is, of course, also because women have become more independent and can more easily sustain themselves. In terms of what you describe from the Catholic Church this is, of course, a completely unbalanced approach that has no bearing in the scriptures. It is simply a form of fanaticism that is completely unkind, completely unloving and completely un-Christ-like.
