What Are Your Thoughts on Separation or Divorce?

How does the Church treat separated and divorced people? Do the judge? Do they condemn? Are they more understanding, forgiving? Have things changed over the last 10, 20, 30 years in the church having sympathy and giving care to those with relationship problems? How would your church treat you if you where going through a separation or divorce? What would happen if a minister went through a separation or divorce. Doesn't Paul say it is good or can be good for a couple to be separated for a time? Can separation be a blessing for a couple? Or does it hurt? If you have gone through a separation or divorce how have you felt? Did it help, hurt? How? If you are a minister how would your church treat you if you where separated or divorced? Why? What advice do you have for those who are separated or considering divorce? Does the church need to treat separated and divorced people different? How and Why? If you are currently separated or divorced how has your church helped you and your family?

Would Jesus Himself Like What Christianity Has Become?

I often wonder if Jesus would like what Christianity has become. Do think his followers have made Christianity into something he would be ashamed of? You see especially in america today that Christianity has become against so many things. It has for the most part become a religion of "anti's". Anti-science, anti-birth control, anti-femenism, anti homosexual, anti-democrat, and on and on and on...Is this what Jesus wanted Christianity to be? Did Jesus want Christianity to become a religion of conformity to a polical or social ideology? Are believers today forgetting what Christianity is about? Have Christians made it into a turn off for the world and others? Is there anything believers can do to refocus Christianity on Christ and what He thinks?
