Martin Luther, divorce, drugs, and death.

There is  relationship between Martin Luther, divorce, drugs, and death.  The Only Church Jesus Founded taught that marriage should last as long as life.  He Who Fulfilled The Prophecies was clear in His Teaching:  “What God has joined together let no man put asunder.”

Protestant Teaching used to agree with Catholic Doctrine, that “Marriage is for life.”  As Protestantism grew farther from The Catholic Church, their denominations began to slide down the slippery slope.  Nearly all became too afraid of losing donors to demand that valid marriages be maintained.

Divorce has a terrible effect on all who are involved.  Many children are unable to recover from the shattering of their family.  Many hide their inevitable agonies and insecurities by using drugs.  Keeping families together helps children grow up and do well in life.

Laws and courts followed the slide down Protestantism’s slippery slope.    Soon, courts and legislatures allowed for the “no fault divorce”.  Such laws reflected modern Protestant teaching.  Now, we see that Catholic, and the earlier Protestant teaching, was right.  Modern Protestantism is wrong.  Today, ravaged by drug-related deaths, we see the connection between Martin Luther, divorce, drugs, and death.

For a year, obituaries were collected from the local County newspaper.  34% of the dead addicts had divorced parents!  40% of the dead addicts had suffered the death of one parent.  Only death was worse than divorce in its effect on the minds of the young people involved!

Interestingly, 30% of the dead addicts had no religious services mentioned in their obituaries.  57% were identifiable by services described in the obituaries as “Protestant”.  12% could be seen to have once been at least somewhat “Catholic”.

In this County, Census figures show that about 30% of the people are Catholic.   30% are in Protestant denominations.  40% of the remaining residents have “no religion”

If all parents had held true to Catholic Teaching, we may estimate that 12 people would have died, rather than a hundred.

We may consider the relationship between Martin Luther, divorce, drugs, and death.
