A position paper on divorce and remarriage (John Piper)

John Piper lays out eleven reasons why he believe’s all remarriage after divorce is prohibited while both spouses are alive. He did not always hold this view. He writes,

All of my adult life, until I was faced with the necessity of dealing with divorce and remarriage in the pastoral context, I held the prevailing Protestant view that remarriage after divorce was Biblically sanctioned in cases where divorce had resulted from desertion or persistent adultery. Only when I was compelled, some years ago, in teaching through the gospel of Luke, to deal with Jesus’ absolute statement in Luke 16:18 did I begin to question that inherited position.
