Divorce and Remarriage Articles by Church of God Gospel Trumpet (est. 1880)
Must They Separate? — Letter from the ministers assembled in General Camp Meeting at Moundsville, W. VA June 1901 concerning the issue of divorce and remarriage that was published in the Gospel Trumpet (est. 1880).
I don’t agree with the view held in this letter but I have posted it here for historical purposes to show that in 1901 the Church of God Gospel Trumpet group were already making allowances for divorce and remarriage by 1901. This is to counter the position held by the Church of God Guthrie, Oklahoma (est 1910) and the Church of God Restoration (est. 1980) that the Church of God Gospel Trumpet compromised in 1910 over the tie issue.
In my view the compromise happened much sooner over the divorce and remarriage issue. Marrying people into adulterous relationships and allowing them to stay in adulterous relationships is a much more serious issue that putting a tie on.
Marriage and Divorce — Booklet by D.S. Warner that taught there is no Bible command to separate two people who are married when one had a living spouse from a previous lawful1 marriage if they got into the second marriage not knowing the Bible taught against second marriages when you had a living spouse from a previous lawful1 marriage.
I don’t agree with the view held in this booklet but I have posted it here for historical purposes to show that D.S. Warner and the Church of God Gospel Trumpet group allowed couples to say in adulterous marriages that the Church of God Restoration would consider adultery not allow them to stay in.
My point for noting this is to show that the Church of God Gospel Trumpet was an adultery group (a church group that allows members in good standing to stay in adulterous marriages) from its beginning of 1880. This raises serious questions about the Church of God Restoration and their claim to be the one true visible church and their attempts to date the restoring of God’s church back to 1880 through the work of D.S. Warner.
