3 reasons why Christians should not divorce

It is common to hear that the divorce rate among Christians is as bad the world. There is some truth in that, if we consider all who make any claim to the name Christian. But if we consider those who have a religious commitment and practice as opposed to nominal Christians, a difference begins to emerge. For example, analysis by W. Bradford Wilcox of the University of Virginia says that  those he defines as active conservative Protestants who regularly attend church are 35 percent less likely to divorce compared to others who have no affiliation. On the one hand many who self-identify as Christians do not live out this faith. On the other hand, salvation and discipleship does have an effect on people's lives, including their marriages.

Here are at least three reasons why Christians should never divorce:

1. They have the Word of God to teach them.
2. They have the Spirit of God to guide them.
3. They have the Church of God to help them.
