RE: Amy Grant's Recent Divorce and Subsequent Marriage to Vince Gill

Hello Jon Hanna,

I am wondering why you (wrote) a vindictive article about Vince Gill & Amy Grant. Is it just because you (were) hoping to influence ticket sales to their concert?

We were in Nashville last year and were told of Gary Chapman's years of drunkenness. Maybe Amy had a reason to divorce him. I believe it was Janice who divorced Vince. Maybe you had better get your facts straight before judging these two! Amy comes from a prominent Christian family, which includes Senator Bill Frisk who has served time as a medical missionary.

Dear Kay,

My article regarding Amy's divorce was a Biblical perspective regarding divorce. Unfortunately, Amy's stand on divorce is contrary to God's word. Divorce is only acceptable if your spouse was sexually immoral or if an unbelieving spouse decided to leave a believer. Christians must declare God's Word when people like Amy publicly tell of another gospel, which leads to adultery. It was Amy who publicly said anyone should be able to get a divorce if they feel that their marriage is hurtful. If Amy's gospel were true then we are all eligible for divorce. Everyone's marriage has experienced hurt from one degree or another. It was Amy's husband Gary who expressed surprise at Amy's divorce action saying he believed the Bible's direction, that a marriage should last a lifetime. God hates divorce! (Ezek. 16:30, Matt. 5:32, 1 Cor. 7:15). Remember, God offers forgiveness to everyone who repents. (I John 1:6-9) "Whosoever therefore breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven: but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven." Jesus, (Matt. 5:19)
