Eating Mark 10:2-16
Jesus has been talking about children a lot lately. He said that how you treat a child is how you treat GOD. Then he angrily scolds the disciples about any little one that gets a stumbling block from them should cause them to cut off their hands or feet. He is speaking about community, the Kingdom of GOD, and about the way we treat each other.
Then somebody asks Him about what The Law says about divorce. And a thousand evangelicals dig their heads in the sand and say “see, he hates divorce!”
What Jesus really says is something else. He argues that their very understanding of marriage is wrong.
