Worst Case Scenario in Marriage

Boyce College professor Heath Lambert addressed the women of Southern Seminary at a recent Pendergraph Women’s Ministry event. He shows how Matthew 7:1-6 instructs women to deal with the “worst case scenario” in a marital relationship.


Congratulations to Dr. Lambert who successfully defended his dissertation last week. It was written under the supervision of David Powlison.

    I agree with much of what Heath taught, but he did not discuss the big D – divorce. Biblical reasons for divorce include adultery and neglect/abuse, including physical, emotional or spiritual abuse, when done with a hard heart, which is exactly what he was discussing. The Worst Case is when your spouse refuses to change, according to Heath.

    I am glad he mentioned being safe and in some cases being safe means to divorce, but he did not clearly say this.

    Thanks so much for this post and for introducing us to this gifted young scholar – a very appropriate and encouraging addition to the recent discussion on abuse.
