Divorce is not the dissolution of a marriage—death is, according to the Bible (Rom. 7:2,3). However, as far as our society views it, about 50% of all marriages in the USA end in divorce. The divorce rate actually increases for the second “marriage” and even more for the third “marriage.” Those statistics are distressing but true, and such an epidemic of divorce has led to a proliferation of adultery. In the 20th century the occurrence of divorce has greatly increased because of TV. There are multiple reasons for divorce, but the most common is infidelity. With the false teaching of eternal security, proponents are wrongly thinking they will remain saved even if they stray into adultery. Hence, divorces continue to increase.
