Advice to Gene Simmons Part 8, (“Tip Tuesday” Part D)

Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed

The series I have been doing on “Advice to Gene Simmons” that I am starting what I am calling “Tip Tuesday.” For the next few months we will be looking at the Simmons family.

In the July 19th episode  Nick said to his father “You were a great father but not a good spouse.” 

On July 19th I watched Gene Simmons Family Jewels and I commented how I  was struck by the good advice that his son Nick gave him. He told him that he grew up thinking that his father was the best. However, now that the marital infidility has come out, it has made Nick think long and hard about what other things in his father’s life are not like he thought they were.

Sophie went even farther and said that Gene “was not a good dad.” Both of these clips were repeated in this week’s episode on July 26th.

I felt like yelling at the tv: “WAKE UP GENE BUT THESE AFFAIRS ARE GOING TO COST YOU THE RELATIONSHIPS OF THOSE WHO TRULY LOVE YOU!!!!!CAN’T YOU SEE WHAT IS REALLY VALUABLE IN LIFE?”

In the message that Brandon Barnard brought to Fellowship Bible Church on July 24th he made a big point out of what the pathway of impurity is like. THE PATHWAY OF IMPURITY IS OPPRESSIVE AND COSTLY.

Then Brandon read these scriptures below:

Proverbs 5:21-23

English Standard Version (ESV)

21For a man’s ways are before the eyes of the LORD,
   and he ponders[a] all his paths.
22The iniquities of the wicked ensnare him,
   and he is held fast in the cords of his sin.
23 He dies for lack of discipline,
   and because of his great folly he is led astray.

Proverbs 6:25-28

English Standard Version (ESV)

25 Do not desire her beauty in your heart,
   and do not let her capture you with her eyelashes;
26for the price of a prostitute is only a loaf of bread,[a]
   but a married woman[b] hunts down a precious life.
27Can a man carry fire next to his chest
   and his clothes not be burned?
28Or can one walk on hot coals
   and his feet not be scorched?

Proverbs 7:22-23

English Standard Version (ESV)

22All at once he follows her,
   as an ox goes to the slaughter,
or as a stag is caught fast[a]
 23till an arrow pierces its liver;
as a bird rushes into a snare;
   he does not know that it will cost him his life.

We are going to address the subject of divorce because it is the theme of our Lord’s teaching in Mark chapter 10…Mark chapter 10. We’re going to be looking at the twelve verses that launch this chapter and it’s going to be in two parts, one this morning and another one next Sunday. So I’m going to let you know that so that you’re not wondering why I haven’t gotten to all of the issues that relate to this theme. I’m unable to do that until next Sunday and we’ll finish up this text next Sunday morning. And then next Sunday evening, I’m going to add a special message on the issue of divorce from 1 Corinthians chapter 7. That will give you the full picture of what the Scripture teaches about divorce. We’ve also put a little notice in Grace Today about the book, The Divorce Dilemma, which is a handy guide to take you through the Scripture to help you understand these issues.

We’re in Mark chapter 10, The Truth About Divorce. Now if you ask the question, how does God view divorce? There is a short answer. The short answer is given by God Himself in Malachi, the last prophecy at the end of your Old Testament, chapter 2 verse 16 where God says, “I hate divorce… I hate divorce.” That is God’s attitude toward a widely accepted, extremely popular and time-honored institution in human society…God hates divorce.
