Intro: A study of a portion of the 7th Commandment with a special focus on the divorce law in Deut. 24:1-4. This book was NOT written to encourage divorce, but rather to show that if one remarries after divorce, he has not committed adultery. Divorce itself is not a sin, but rather a judgment for sin.

God does not want us to be a “sacrificial victim” for the sake of the marriage.
