Podcast 132: Marriage, Divorce and Remarriage (Pastor Dan Samms)

 More than ever, as society around us devalues marriage, the church needs to respond with biblical conviction. While most statistics indicate that divorce is nearly as high among professing Christians from the secular world, we are also discovering that Christians who attend church regularly have a far better chance of surviving the enemies attempts at destroying the family. Professing believers who do not attend church have a 60% change of divorcing, and that number drops to 30% for those who do regularly attend church. The church is an important place, not only to promote godly marriage, but also respond with biblical obedience to divorce and remarriage. We encourage the pastor and church leaders to have a clear biblical policy in place that will help to strengthen the family unit. I had the privilege to interview Pastor Dan Samms on this subject.

Pastor Dan is deeply committed to doctrine who believes if the pastor is going to be passionate about anything, it needs to be about what he believes concerning the truths of God’s Word. Dan’s primary role is equipping the saints to make disciples.  He plants house churches and trains shepherds with Restoration House Church Network.  He also teaches theology for Liberty University and for Underground Seminary.  Dan is in love with his wife, Christy.  They have three kids, a few chickens, and an awesome dog named “Sam.”  Dan drinks good coffee, enjoys fine woodworking, and writes theology curriculum.  Christy is a licensed counselor.  She owns Hope Counseling and Consultation Services, LLC  and is an incredible mother who has a variety of hobbies .  Together, they raise their kids, lead the church, and enjoy God’s blessings and they do all that in Amherst, Oh.
