Yes, God Hates Divorce...But He Hates Abuse More!





Scripture References for Further Study about Abuse (Note there are about 100 verses, this is just a sample).


Malachi 2:13-16 ESV (English Standard Version Bible)
And this second thing you do. You cover the Lord's altar with tears, with weeping and groaning because he no longer regards the offering or accepts it with favor from your hand. But you say, “Why does he not?” Because the Lord was witness between you and the wife of your youth, to whom you have been faithless, though she is your companion and your wife by covenant. Did he not make them one, with a portion of the Spirit in their union? And what was the one God seeking? Godly offspring. So guard yourselves in your spirit, and let none of you be faithless to the wife of your youth. “For the man who does not love his wife but divorces her, says the Lord, the God of Israel, covers his garment with violence, says the Lord of hosts. So guard yourselves in your spirit, and do not be faithless.”


Proverbs 10:11 ESV
The mouth of the righteous is a fountain of life, but the mouth of the wicked conceals violence.



Proverbs 10:6 ESV

Blessings are on the head of the righteous, but the mouth of the wicked conceals violence.



Psalm 10:17-18 ESV
O Lord, you hear the desire of the afflicted; you will strengthen their heart; you will incline your ear to do justice to the fatherless and the oppressed, so that man who is of the earth may strike terror no more.



Psalm 72:14 ESV
From oppression and violence he redeems their life, and precious is their blood in his sight.



Psalm 55:20-21 ESV
My companion stretched out his hand against his friends; he violated his covenant. His speech was smooth as butter, yet war was in his heart; his words were softer than oil, yet they were drawn swords.
God didn't put you with an abusive mate. Your flesh did.
