Last night after midweek service we had the most interesting discussion and I'd like to bring you into it. There about 7 of us men in the discussion (including the pastor). 1 Timothy 3:12 "A deacon must be the husband of but one wife and must manage his children and his household well" Obviously this indicates a divorced man should not be considered, at least one who has remarried. BUT how about a man married to his first wife, but she is divorced? How about a man who had had an affair, but repented and never left his wife? How about a man who as a young unmarried man had had sex, but then settled down and married and has been faithful? Also if we are going to be literal (which pretty much all of us in the discussion were) it has to be a MAN, but also to be literal, it would have to be a married man. What do you think?
