Grace prevails

An update on the Church of God Prophecy's stance on remarriage, from The Tennessean:

"The resolution passed by a majority of church pastors and members in attendance — 79 dissented — affirms that marriage is a sacred institution, encourages spouses in troubled marriages to reconcile and says the church does not recognize same-sex or polygamous marriages.

"It also said that the church must recognize 'some things are beyond human ability to repair and reconcile.'

"And the resolution also redefined the church's definition of 'fornication,' as mentioned in the Bible. Previously the definition encompassed divorced people in subsequent marriages — or 'double marriages,' as the denomination called them."
