Here’s a video clip of Pat Roberston answering the question of whether it would be okay to divorce your spouse due to their severe illness (Alzheimers):
I find Robertson’s remarks to be absolutely revolting. He dismisses the integrity of marriage by attempting to nuance the word “death”. He makes a sham of the Gospel in the process. Marriage is a picture of the Gospel. (Christ and the Church) Christ doesn’t “give up” on us when we become unlovable. He doesn’t provide some sort of alternative care while he “starts over” some where. Robertson again shows his failure to understand Scripture properly.
Chance to Interact: What do you make of Robertson’s words? Am I over-reacting?
