Summary of Mennonite Divorce/Remarriage Beliefs

Postby theosis » Sun Nov 23, 2008 2:00 pm

i'm looking for a well-written summary of mennonite beliefs on divorce and remarriage online. i do not want to engage in a discussion on this topic on this thread (although, of course, i am not forbidding it-just to say that is not the intent of this post), because it has been hashed about so many other times previously. can anyone direct me to such a treatise? many, many thanks in advance!

Check out http://www.anabaptists.org. Click on "Doctrine", scroll down to "Family and Marriage" and you will find several articles about divorce and remarriage. Hope that helps!

This article doesn't cover quite all the bases but it does address some of the key issues. Written by Allen Roth
