25 Bible Verses on Remarriage After Death
Today we will be dealing with 25 bible verses on remarriage after death. Is it right for a Christian man or woman to remarry after the death of their partner? Remember the scripture said in the book of Mark 10:7 For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.’ So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.”
Death could bring an asunder between two couples joined together by God. There are so many opinions from different schools of thought about remarriage after death. While some people believe it is right for a man or woman to remarry after the death of their partner, others believe it is not right. There are Christians who might have misconstrued the whole concept of marriage as propounded by God. They think a man or woman who has just lost their partner is still one body one flesh with their dead partner so that makes remarriage inappropriate.
The concept of marriage was introduced for different reasons. The first reason is for a man not to be alone. Genesis 2:18 The LORD God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.” A man was not created to live an isolated life. That’s one of the reasons why God created a woman for man. And the two are meant to be helpers. Another reason why God instituted marriage was for multiplication and dominion. But all of these will not be possible if a man or woman refuses to remarry after the death of their partner. If they are still within the age to make children, it is wise that they remarry because marriage also helps curb the act of fornication.
