Look at it yourself. This woman first talks about how horribly unhappy her marriage is. No physical abuse, no adultery – but look, she was REALLY, really unhappy! So she looked to God for advice:
I studied the passages over and over again. I prayed and prayed. I prayed for guidance and not deliverance…Studying the word of God strengthens you. It strengthened me to my decision – deliverance and freedom.
So you see, she didn’t just get divorce all willy-nilly. God was okay with it! God STRENGTHENED her decision! But she’s still not sure. So she talks to her pastor:
[My Pastor] could not recommend divorce to anyone. But he did not say no. I would not have gone through with my decisions if he had told me not to file for divorce…
So you see, her Pastor doesn’t condemn her. God must be on her side!
So she decides the divorce, and in case she wasn’t sure, God gives her a message that it was the right thing to do. From a preacher:
An evangelist came to Church soon after I decided to divorce. He went on to describe how psychological rape can occur within relationships…there I stood dumbfounded. God was talking to me…near the end of the service the evangelist was even led to pray for divorce, not reconciliation. All along the way God laid out morsels for me to feed on until I was ready for what He wanted me to do.
So let’s get this straight: This woman tested the spirits. She prayed, “Over and over”, she consulted trusted Christian leaders, and she understood the Spirits were from the Lord. Thus, the moral law was suspended, and divorce is a-okay.
All right, let’s get it straight now: That’s ridiculous. Whatever you think, God isn’t okay with divorce because you’re unhaaaaaapy. That’s not how it works. Divorce is evil and God hates it, period.
But baby killing, that’s a different matter:
If after a period of prayer, fasting, consultation with trusted Christian leaders, and testing the spirits I understood the spirits were those of the Lord I would obey [and kill infants]. Depending on the ‘level of wrongness’ (for lack of a better term springing to mind), this period would be longer and more intense. I might also try to bargain with God as per Abraham.
