Kent Hovind is Getting a Divorce and Getting Remarried!

He just got released from prison a year ago and he is already getting a divorce and getting remarried! How sick is that? He said he prayed about it. I doubt God would ever have him remarry. He did not even wait very long. I clicked the unsubscribe button to his Youtube channel. Crazy and sad.God hates marriage and he is at the age where he does not need a wife and should be alone unless reconciled with his wife. Plus we don’t know what happened according to his wife.

1 Corinthians 7:1 Now concerning the things whereof ye wrote unto me: It is good for a man not to touch a woman.

1 Corinthians 7:2 Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband.

1 Corinthians 7:3 Let the husband render unto the wife due benevolence: and likewise also the wife unto the husband.

1 Corinthians 7:4 The wife hath not power of her own body, but the husband: and likewise also the husband hath not power of his own body, but the wife.

1 Corinthians 7:5 Defraud ye not one the other, except it be with consent for a time, that ye may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again, that Satan tempt you not for your incontinency.

1 Corinthians 7:6 But I speak this by permission, and not of commandment.

1 Corinthians 7:7 For I would that all men were even as I myself. But every man hath his proper gift of God, one after this manner, and another after that.

1 Corinthians 7:8 I say therefore to the unmarried and widows, It is good for them if they abide even as I.

1 Corinthians 7:9 But if they cannot contain, let them marry: for it is better to marry than to burn.

1 Corinthians 7:10 And unto the married I command, yet not I, but the Lord, Let not the wife depart from her husband:

1 Corinthians 7:11 But and if she depart, let her remain unmarried, or be reconciled to her husband: and let not the husband put away his wife.

1 Corinthians 7:12 But to the rest speak I, not the Lord: If any brother hath a wife that believeth not, and she be pleased to dwell with him, let him not put her away.

1 Corinthians 7:13 And the woman which hath an husband that believeth not, and if he be pleased to dwell with her, let her not leave him.

1 Corinthians 7:14 For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband: else were your children unclean; but now are they holy.

1 Corinthians 7:15 But if the unbelieving depart, let him depart. A brother or a sister is not under bondage in such cases: but God hath called us to peace.

1 Corinthians 7:16 For what knowest thou, O wife, whether thou shalt save thy husband? or how knowest thou, O man, whether thou shalt save thy wife?

1 Corinthians 7:17 But as God hath distributed to every man, as the Lord hath called every one, so let him walk. And so ordain I in all churches.

1 Corinthians 7:18 Is any man called being circumcised? let him not become uncircumcised. Is any called in uncircumcision? let him not be circumcised.

1 Corinthians 7:19 Circumcision is nothing, and uncircumcision is nothing, but the keeping of the commandments of God.

1 Corinthians 7:20 Let every man abide in the same calling wherein he was called.

1 Corinthians 7:21 Art thou called being a servant? care not for it: but if thou mayest be made free, use it rather.

1 Corinthians 7:22 For he that is called in the Lord, being a servant, is the Lord’s freeman: likewise also he that is called, being free, is Christ’s servant.

1 Corinthians 7:23 Ye are bought with a price; be not ye the servants of men.

1 Corinthians 7:24 Brethren, let every man, wherein he is called, therein abide with God.

1 Corinthians 7:25 Now concerning virgins I have no commandment of the Lord: yet I give my judgment, as one that hath obtained mercy of the Lord to be faithful.

1 Corinthians 7:26 I suppose therefore that this is good for the present distress, I say, that it is good for a man so to be.

1 Corinthians 7:27 Art thou bound unto a wife? seek not to be loosed. Art thou loosed from a wife? seek not a wife.

1 Corinthians 7:28 But and if thou marry, thou hast not sinned; and if a virgin marry, she hath not sinned. Nevertheless such shall have trouble in the flesh: but I spare you.

1 Corinthians 7:29 But this I say, brethren, the time is short: it remaineth, that both they that have wives be as though they had none;

1 Corinthians 7:30 And they that weep, as though they wept not; and they that rejoice, as though they rejoiced not; and they that buy, as though they possessed not;

1 Corinthians 7:31 And they that use this world, as not abusing it: for the fashion of this world passeth away.

1 Corinthians 7:32 But I would have you without carefulness. He that is unmarried careth for the things that belong to the Lord, how he may please the Lord:

1 Corinthians 7:33 But he that is married careth for the things that are of the world, how he may please his wife.

1 Corinthians 7:34 There is difference also between a wife and a virgin. The unmarried woman careth for the things of the Lord, that she may be holy both in body and in spirit: but she that is married careth for the things of the world, how she may please her husband.

1 Corinthians 7:35 And this I speak for your own profit; not that I may cast a snare upon you, but for that which is comely, and that ye may attend upon the Lord without distraction.

1 Corinthians 7:36 But if any man think that he behaveth himself uncomely toward his virgin, if she pass the flower of her age, and need so require, let him do what he will, he sinneth not: let them marry.

1 Corinthians 7:37 Nevertheless he that standeth stedfast in his heart, having no necessity, but hath power over his own will, and hath so decreed in his heart that he will keep his virgin, doeth well.

1 Corinthians 7:38 So then he that giveth her in marriage doeth well; but he that giveth her not in marriage doeth better.

1 Corinthians 7:39 The wife is bound by the law as long as her husband liveth; but if her husband be dead, she is at liberty to be married to whom she will; only in the Lord.

1 Corinthians 7:40 But she is happier if she so abide, after my judgment: and I think also that I have the Spirit of God.

  1. You vindictive person he has the right to be happy, his former wife asked for a divorce from him, she was properly sleeping with someone else anyway. I’m very happy for them both and God will bless them both.

    • God hates divorce. We don’t know the whole story about what happened other than how quickly it happened and his point of view. I don’t know what happened as far as the wife’s perspective. They have children and she is still alive. God would not have him go to another wife. He is committing adultery. The only kind of people who say God would have them do this are crooked TV evangelists and lukewarm Christians. I haven’t seen anything of real substance since he came back from prison. He is not the same person anymore and I unsubscribed. Just because something makes you happy, doesn’t make your actions right. Gay people getting married makes them happy but as much as they say they are gay Christians, it isn’t true and God never condoned that relationship or behavior. 1 Corinthians 7:20 Let every man abide in the same calling wherein he was called. <<< There is no new calling to the man whose wife left unless he is a young widower. He is to remain single and pray for reconciliation with his wife. He has many friends, supporters and family and another wife is not needed. The fact that he is saying God would have him do this has exposed him. Please note this is a blog entry of my opinion and if you have a different opinion, that is up to you. Everyone can have their own opinion but mine is distrust in Kent Hovind.

      • He can make excuses but I didn’t see ANY fight for his marriage in that video. It is better that he remained alone and focused on his ministry. His kids are grown and he is an old man. There is no reason for him to remarry especially with his wife being alive. I have given a full explanation in the comments. I stopped watching him the day I posted the blog post. It’s his life, he can do what he wants but there is nothing Biblical about it and no real Christian will be fooled by his words or actions.

  2. I do not see anything in the scriptures you quoted that condemns Dr. Hovind’s acts. The man is never told to not remarry during a divorce ONLY the woman. Look closely at the scripture. A man can remarry while the first is totally healthy and intact. Kent Hovind needs a wife that is why he has gotten for himself a new one. It is better to marry than to burn.

    • 1 Corinthians 7:11 But and if she depart, let her remain unmarried, or be reconciled to her husband: and let not the husband put away his wife.

      So a man is not to put away his wife. We don’t know why from the wife’s perspective that this marriage ended but they are both senior citizens now. They don’t have the same drive as when they were in their 20’s. Even so, his wife is still alive, they are still married and taken until they die because their promise to each other was “until death do us part”. They made a promise before God and they are to remain unmarried for the rest of their years.

      1 Corinthians 7:17 But as God hath distributed to every man, as the Lord hath called every one, so let him walk. And so ordain I in all churches.

      This verse is saying that however you were when you first became Christian, remain so. Both of this couple were Christians and not unbelievers. They know they should stay married first of all. God never told people that when they get sick or dislike their husband in their 60’s or 70’s to remarry.

      1 Corinthians 7:24 Brethren, let every man, wherein he is called, therein abide with God.

      This verse confirms verse 17.

      1 Corinthians 7:27 Art thou bound unto a wife? seek not to be loosed. Art thou loosed from a wife? seek not a wife.

      Here is the verse you were looking for. His wife left and not he is not to look for a wife. Verse 28 is regarding those who have not been married before.

      God hates divorce and says that their marriage is a covenant. Malachi 2:14 Yet ye say, Wherefore? Because the LORD hath been witness between thee and the wife of thy youth, against whom thou hast dealt treacherously: yet is she thy companion, and the wife of thy covenant.

      Malachi 2:15 And did not he make one? Yet had he the residue of the spirit. And wherefore one? That he might seek a godly seed. Therefore take heed to your spirit, and let none deal treacherously against the wife of his youth.

      Malachi 2:16 For the LORD, the God of Israel, saith that he hateth putting away: for one covereth violence with his garment, saith the LORD of hosts: therefore take heed to your spirit, that ye deal not treacherously.

      We are to keep our promises even if it means hardship for us. My parents are still together and if my father remarried because my mother said she wanted a divorce, I would not support it. Especially if he marries a younger woman less than a year before he was divorced. Did they have a courtship before the divorce papers were drawn up? My parents are about the same age as Dr. Hovind. Did they see the pastor? They are Baptist. I know my pastor wouldn’t approve of that.

      Matthew 19:5 And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh?

      Matthew 19:6 Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.

      Matthew 19:7 They say unto him, Why did Moses then command to give a writing of divorcement, and to put her away?

      Matthew 19:8 He saith unto them, Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not so.

      Matthew 19:9 And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery.

      Dr. Hovind is committing adultery and making his girlfriend into an adulteress. He and his REAL wife are one flesh and have children. Perhaps the wife is the one who is at fault (we don’t know and it looks like he is putting them in a financial mess) but the husband does not need to make it worse. This is not approved by God so therefore, Dr. Hovind is not a reliable spiritual leader or example to Christians.

      1 Timothy 3:2 A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach;

      1 Timothy 3:12 Let the deacons be the husbands of one wife, ruling their children and their own houses well.

      Titus 1:6 If any be blameless, the husband of one wife, having faithful children not accused of riot or unruly.

      The elder or pastor of a church must be the husband of ONE wife. I am not sure of his role or title in his church but it can not be elder or pastor. He is not hearing from God. God would never allow this to happen. This sort of thing only happens among TELevangelists and lukewarm Christians and in that case…he is not a good example to any Christian and should not be a teacher of God’s word. It is best that people unsubscribe from Dr. Hovind. There are many other teachers and preachers out there. If you need to look up some new people, check out Pastor Charles Lawson, Pastor Joey Faust, Pastor Ben Heath, Brandon Teague and Pastor Jason Cooley which are on Sermon Audio and Most on YouTube. They are better examples of Christians who have remained loyal to their wives and have not divorced.

      • Verse 27 of 1st Corinthians 7 is Paul’s advise. In verse 25 and 26 he states that this is not a commandment from Yahuwah the maker but his own judgement for the present distress. In other words it is Paul’s OPINION for the PRESENT DISTRESS. it is Paul’s opinion that man not marry at all because of persecution. One’s mind will be split between himself the ministry and the well-being of his family should he be arrested. Paul, not the maker, is SUGGESTING that for the moment, temporarily, for the duration of that persecution at that time it better that they be persecuted alone rather than with a family. Paul then goes on to disagree with your assertion that he is giving a commandment in the very next verse, verse 28. He says “if you marry you have not sinned”. Paul even states in verse 29 that the time is short meaning the distress(i.e. persecution) is about to end and his OPINION becomes totally invalid. As for marrying more than one wife leaders and shepherds of the church have done it with Yahuwah’s blessing. Jacob was a prophet but he said that his children from four wives was a gracious gift from the Maker (Gen 33v5), David was a prophet leading the flock yet Yahuwah says that he gave David his wives and that he would have given him more ( 2 Sam 12v8) David was the king, the greatest of the leaders of the church of israel and yet one of the signs that Yahuwah was with him was that he acquired many wives (2 Sam 5v10-13), Christ is the bishop of our souls yet he has more than one wife (Matt 25v1-12, Eze 23v1-4). it makes no sense for Paul to tell us to not do what righteous men did righteously. It make no sense for to teach that aspiring bishops must not do what the Great Bishop Christ does since Christ is a polygamist with many brides (i.e. Churches). The reason for this misunderstanding is that the European translators did a poor job on 1 Tim 3v2,12 and Titus 1v6 imposing their on monogamous standard that was alien to David, Moses, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, solomon and all other righteous men. In other parts of scripture the greek word “mia” is translated as “first” instead of “one”. These are all the references it is translated as “one” Mar_16:1-2 (2), Joh_20:1 (2), Joh_20:19, Act_20:7, 1Co_16:2, Tit_3:10.
        Notice that within Titus it is translated two different ways. In titus 1v6 is “one” and titus 3v10 is “first”. The scripture must therefore read “the bishop must be the husband of his FIRST wife” as in he must be married to AT LEAST one not only one. As for them being too old too marry that is the argument of a child. Who in the entire bible was sinning for marrying at an old age. It Yahuwah’s word that we use to judge people especially the brethren. The word will convert the sinner not deep seated traditions. There is no sin in marrying at an old age. Please avoid immature emotional arguments like that one.

    • First of all you are probably in some weird cult. We are speaking in English and this is a King James Bible promoted site. The bible says ‘husband of one wife’. The King James Bible is correct and I don’t know which greek version you are using and if it is the same used in modern translations. Jacob was not doing right but in ignorance. Neither God or Jesus 2000 years ago promoted having more than one wife. That was a cultural mistake. The divorce and remarry thing is among unbelievers. I have no idea what denomination you are in or what bible you are using but the bible clearly shows that a Christian man or woman is not to put away his wife and marry another while the other is still alive. I already showed you what the bible says. His opinion is that it is better not to marry so that the focus is on God and not the spouse. It is fine if you don’t agree

      Matthew 19:3 The Pharisees also came unto him, tempting him, and saying unto him, Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife for every cause?

      Matthew 19:4 And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female,

      Matthew 19:5 And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh?

      Matthew 19:6 Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.

      Matthew 19:7 They say unto him, Why did Moses then command to give a writing of divorcement, and to put her away?

      Matthew 19:8 He saith unto them, Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not so.

      Matthew 19:9 And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery.

      Matthew 19:10 His disciples say unto him, If the case of the man be so with his wife, it is not good to marry.

      Matthew 19:11 But he said unto them, All men cannot receive this saying, save they to whom it is given.

      Matthew 19:12 For there are some eunuchs, which were so born from their mother’s womb: and there are some eunuchs, which were made eunuchs of men: and there be eunuchs, which have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven’s sake. He that is able to receive it, let him receive it.

      God never told Dr, Kent Hovind to divorce and marry another. He can do what he wants and you can do what you want but it is clear that you are in some weird cult and he is not hearing from God but is going after his own lusts and is not a very good example of a born again Bible believing Christian. Many pastors are speaking out against him and I didn’t want to listen because of all his wonderful past speeches but clearly he is not the same person anymore. He used to be a conservative Independent Fundamental Baptist. He has become lukewarm.

      Here is an example of a sermon against Kent Hovind from last year that I didnt want to listen to: http://www.sermonaudio.com/sermoninfo.asp?SID=815151833102

  3. Isn’t the woman that Kent Hovind married, divorced as well? If so, regardless of whether or not Hovind is permitted to remarry after his own divorce, he would not be permitted to marry a woman who has been put away; the scriptures declare that whoever marries her who is divorced is committing adultery.

  5. There is none that are righteous, no, not one, that includes the one who posted this, while we are in the flesh, flesh will always seek sin, the spirit if you are willing will seek God, therefor worship God in Spirit. Paul struggled with this and he was correct in saying, if you do not have a burning passion for the opposite sex then remain single so your focus can remain on serving God, easier said then done, and is this post, if you have sinned in your imagination, you have sinned, let he who is without sin cast the first stone…ect, good arguments on both sides, but to be this public to rebuke another, sinless are you, without a plank in your eye you are, I can only hope God does not judge you as harshly for the number of imaginations you failed to cast down as they entered your mind, as you publicly judged Kent., No defense, for Kent, no defense for you, you are both guilty and that is why Jesus had to become a sin offering for us, as one man condemned all to the law of sin and death, one Man made use free, the Son of man.

    • He is going to be judged more harshly than we are because he is a teacher. He should make himself a better example. Casting the first stone is literal and no one is going to stone anyone. Jesus died for all. No one is sinless but Jesus. We all make mistakes but we repent and leave those sins behind, whether we sin secretly or publicly because God sees all. As we grow in Christ, sins become less of a master. As we mature, we are to become examples to the younger Christians. God wants us to be perfect which is to be blameless not sinless. I am not condemning him. I am not removing him from his status, work, church or anywhere. I am only just another Christian person in this world with a blog. My opinion is that I am disgusted by his behavior and unsubscribing which anyone is free to do.
