Amy Grant's Divorce Is Not Family Friendly
by Editor Jon Hanna
Deviating from God's word, pop singer, Amy Grant embraces a lifestyle that is certainly not 'Family Friendly'. Grant once married to singer Gary Chapman, claims that divorce is in order if a marriage seems to be hurtful. Grant did not describe what constitutes hurtful.
However, seemingly disillusioned by his wife's divorce action, former husband Chapman claims that the Biblical view of marriage is correct and that he believes that a marriage is meant to last a lifetime. Grant divorced him in 1999.
In Matthew 5:32 Jesus said, "But I say to you that whoever divorces his wife for any reason except sexual immorality causes her to commit adultery; and whoever marries a woman who is divorced commits adultery."
Amy Grant and new husband Vince Gill had known each other for several years having worked on musical projects together. They were often spotted together at various locations in Nashville before both decided to divorce their spouses and to marry each other.
Many Christian radio stations in America have since pulled Amy Grants music from their rotation, in keeping with scripture which requires believers to withdraw from those who teach another doctrine or refuse to consent to doctrine which accords with godliness. (I Timothy 6:3-5) and (II John Verses 9-11) Those who continue to support Amy Grant's stand on divorce should prayerfully seek God's will.
The good news for Amy Grant and Vince Gill is that Jesus died for their sins. Hopefully they will repent and accept God's grace, God's word, and God's way as final authority. (I John 1:5-10) If not, they will be denied entrance into God's Eternal Kingdom. (Galatians 5:19-21) Amy Grant and Gary Chapman have three children between them. Please pray for all involved.
