Pat Robertson of the 700 Club gave some strong advice to a twice divorced woman who called in worried about going to hell if she marries again.
“What is God’s view on divorce? All of my marriages failed,” the woman, Melody, said in a question submitted to the show. “I tried really hard to make them work, but the last husband wouldn’t work or pay the bills, and the one before him was an alcoholic.”
She continued, “Will I go to hell if I marry again? Will I be classified as an adulteress?”
Robertson talks about the woman at the well and tells her:
“You’ve got a serious problem and I don’t think marriage is for you,” he said. “You have picked a selection of losers. There is something in your character that draws you to these men who are indigent or abusive.”
Robertson said that she isn’t going to hell, but that she’s making her own hell on earth.
Robertson said Melody should “forget marriage” for now and just focus on herself.
“You don’t need to get married again,” he added, later saying, “I don’t think you’re marriage material.”
