15 Ways To Destroy Your Marriage – Perry Noble

Perry Noble is the Sr. Pastor of NewSpring Church in South Carolina.  He is a leader I follow on Twitter.  Two days ago, he posted a link to his blog: 15 Ways To Destroy Your Marriage.   It was worth reprinting.  Here’s Perry’s blog on 15 ways to destroy your marraige:

#1 – Have an affair!  (II Samuel 11-12)

#2 – Refuse to run from tempting situations!  (Genesis 39:1-12, I Corinthians 6:18)

#3 – Look at LOTS of porn!  (Job 31:1)

#4 – Connect with “old flames” through online social networking and then convince yourself it is ok because you aren’t actually doing anything wrong!

#5 – Refuse to talk to your spouse about issues that make you angry…just bury them and let a huge pile build up so that you can explode irrationally on them when they totally do not expect it.  (Ephesians 4:25-27)

#6 – Have an affair!!!

#7 – Make sure you spend lots of personal time with the same person of the opposite sex that you are not married to…and when confronted on it say, “It’s business.”

#8 – Make “innocent” remarks to an attractive person of the opposite sex such as, “I wish I had met you before I had gotten married.”

#9 – Put an ad for yourself on an internet dating site…even though you are married…just to see what type of interest you could create!

#10 – Compare your spouse with other people OFTEN and convince yourself that you didn’t get God’s best when you agreed to marry him/her.

#11 – Have an affair!!!

#12 – Take your cues about sexual morality from Hollywood and your “friends” rather than God’s Word.  (John 14:15)

#13 – Begin to believe that your spouse’s main mission on this planet should be to meet your needs…and when they don’t then justify trying to get your needs met elsewhere.

#14 – Fantasize often as to what it would be like to be with another person other than your spouse.

#15 – Be willing to sell out years of marriage, the respect of your children and your character for an orgasm.

Like I said…we will be dealing with this on Sunday…because I am SICK AND TIRED of seeing marriages being destroyed and the church remaining silent about it.
