Divorce Your Spouse If They Have Alzheimers…

Some times people have very difficult questions and seek answers from “authorities” in the field. That would ordinarily be fine, however in this instance I DEFINITELY disagree with this “Authority”.
When you are offering advice you should “PREFACE” it by saying this is YOUR OPINION. What Pat Robertson said in answer to this Alzheimer question was Pat Robertson’s OPINION. No where IN MY bible does it say that Alzheimer is a form of death and therefore it is OK to divorce someone with it. Wedding vows state “Till DEATH do us part”. Now do not get me wrong I am NOT debating the fact of whether or not the person should get a divorce. That is between them and God. Many people, some of them are Christians get divorce. I am divorced, it happens and that is not my issue. My issue is that a supposed “Spiritual Authority” who is telling people that a person with Alzheimer’s is “GONE” and Alzheimer’s is like a type of “DEATH” therefore the person should divorce and start all over! NO WHERE does the bible say that if your spouse has Alzheimer’s they are like dead already so if you need companionship divorce them and start all over!!
As a “Spiritual Authority” if what you are saying cannot be backed up by scripture, than PLEASE PREFACE IT AS YOUR OPINION!

    This is a great post. Unfortunately the general public seems to value the opionions of a person over the Word of God; especially if that person is a high profile person. However, we are admonished in the Bible to study to show ourselves approved, and to rightly divide the Word. That word STUDY is a command. It means YOU do the studying so that YOU can rightly divide (understand) the word of God. Pat Robertson may be a noted speaker, but he can't study for you. You better know God and His word for yourself!

    Honestly cannot see myself divorcing my wife and best friend due to her becoming stricken. I am sure the road ahead would be an extremely difficult one, but it would be well worth it.Hoping my wife – if I ever do marry, would feel the exact same unconditional love for me.
