How could a marriage like the one between Vince and Janis come to an end?
How could a marriage like the one between Vince and Janis come to an end? Was it simply the dominant chemistry between Vince and Amy?
I know that Amy’s stated committment to her husband Gary Chapman, despite his problems (We all have problems) was going to be a difficult road, but one she felt led by God to walk.
Why? Why would Amy who was devoted to her marriage, depart from this?
Why would Vince leave his marriage to Janis?
We as the public, watch and listen and learn. And so far, I have not been influenced to believe theirs is a role model for life partnership that I can point to as being loyal to vows before God.
Help me understand how you can build a life that points to our Maker, if we choose what Vince and Amy have chosen.
They are not exempt from “every man” temptations. It’s just that being Christ-followers, it seems difficult to understand what happened…
Right now, it LOOKS like every woman’s nightmare-that her husband will replace her with a younger version of her.
I am sad.
I am certainly not without sin but I wouldn’t break up another’s marriage! Disgraceful!
Carol, It’s 2022!! Who cares? Amy & Vince seem very happy. Their relationship and what has happened in the past is NONE of your business. Christians sin! Her ex husband was on drugs & verbally abusive. Things happen. I’ll pray you quit judging others & gloating about what you would or would not do.
They committed adultery. True it’s none of business but it’s my business to not support their union and to tell everyone how horrible they are. I’m a proud atheist now. I got so sick of “christians” that I read my Bible more and did real research. I will not support thee Eagles new tour because of Vince. I’m done!
Karen, that makes me really sad that you gave up on Christianity. It is not what others do, but what Christ did for you. God the Father turned His back on His one and only Son to save you by His Son’s pouring out of His blood in forgiveness of your sins so you may live eternally in His Kingdom. Don’t dismiss Jesus Christ because your life depends on it.
You people are absolutely the people most run from In church. Stop judging.
First of all, do we know if any of these people are true christians, because the Word says there are many tares amongst the wheat.. Amy publically confesses she is one and uses that to gain wealth, i.e. Dove Awards. I am not so sure about Vince nor his ex-wife or even Gary Chapman, who is also like Amy, a publically confessing Christian.
Yes, Christians sin and grievously so, but we don’t have free license to do what we want. Like King David, after his murderous affair and marriage with Bathsheba, God convicted David thru Nathan the prophet and David repented, lost his first born with Bathsheba, and sword of consequences never left his house…meaning King David suffered until his death, although God forgave him.
Do Amy and the others bare fruit of repentance…is God’s Holy Spirit able to convict them of sin or are they hardened or never really born again.
The Word of God judges us first and hopefully we Christians confess our sin and repent. Did Amy repent of her affair of the heart? Maybe? But she latter married Vince, a year after his divorce. So, two marriages were destroyed, not just one. God hates divorce! But it is a forgivable sin…
Many in the world are under the impression that Christians are suppose to be perfect all the time, but it depends on the how long they have been walking with Christ.
Yes, we are to move toward Godly maturity and away from sinful lifestyles. It would seem older Christians would be much more mature in stature and bare good fruit. At least know what pleases God and stand for or against that in love, peace, strength and courage.
I wonder about Amy, if she is exhibiting righteous character? Has she repented from her affair of the heart with Vince? Is hosting a gay marriage a righteous thing to do? Would God, who says in His Word, that He loves all people but hates adultery and sexual immortal acts (which is men with men or women with women even if they say they are marrying in monogamy, then calling it Holy) See Romans 1. (Google it and read it all)(homosexuality is not Holy)
But, now after 20 or more years after marriage to Vince and certainly more confessing years of being a Christian, Amy should be mature in Christ. She is 62 years old and probably walked with Christ at least 40 years. She should know better than to host a gay-marriage, no matter how much she loves those involved and think they are loyal to each other to death depart.
Uhm? Does Amy really believe those vows spoken in so called “Holy” marriage ceremonies, then apply it to same sex couples when her God has written it is wrong….for me she doesn’t bare fruit of repentance and I pray that God hasn’t reprobated her heart. But, it looks like it is done with this approval of gay marriage. The approval of homosexuality in a so called Christian, is bad fruit and signals us that they have fallen into the devil’s trap and the enemies camp. Very very sad for her!!
he who is without sin case the first stone.
We are all sinners in the eyes of God. This is why he gave us the card of forgiveness. Thank you Jesus for that card, as I ask him daily. This is why when natural disasters occur even those who are most pure in heart parrish too. When accidents occur and we lose loved ones, we wonder how could God have let this happen. He didn’t let it happen, but he did nothing to prevent it either. Often times, he uses the purest of his children to teach the impure to bend a knee and have faith in him. Only God can bring us to it and sometimes it means losing our everything.
How bizarre some of these comments are! “Act like a Christian and stop judging”??? Please everyone, read 1 Cor. 5 and 1 Cor. 6. We are SUPPOSED to judge those in the body, and we’re to have nothing to do with Christians who are guilty of unrepentant adultery. And now Amy recently hosted her gay niece’s wedding in her house. “You will know them by their fruit,” Jesus warned! ⚠️
1st & foremost no one lived in Vince & Janis’s home – no one knows what their life was like or how either one acted. Amy trying to live with a long term drug addict? Have you ever tried? I have been around addicts,,, lying, sneaking, manipulating constantly ,,, I’m sorry but sometimes relationships don’t work for whatever reason. Take care of your own relationship and quit judging others.
