I heard the message “Divorce and Remarriage,” and I had a question. Pastor Holstege says that Deuteronomy 24:4 is still binding and forbids a husband from taking back his adulterous wife who has remarried. What about a reverse situation where the husband is the adulterer and has remarried, but the wife has faithfully stayed true to her marriage vows. Does the same rule apply, that she may not receive her husband back into the marriage, because he has divorced her and then remarried? If you can point me to an article, sermon, or book on the PRC website (or can give me a simple answer), I would be very appreciative.
For further reading, I direct you to a pamphlet by Prof. David Engelsma on our PRC website: The Prohibition of the Remarriage of the “Innocent Party.” He has also written a couple books: Marriage, Mystery of Christ and the Church and Better to Marry. The first of these explains Deut. 24 in some detail. The second looks at I Cor. 7. But both of them would be very profitable to you.
