If you look deeper in to the CCM interview with Amy she also claims that God told her to get the divorce.

form your own opinion.

I have a mutual friend of Amy's who I spoke to about this very question. Amy did not start seeing Vince till after she and Gary were apart. Gary blamed Vince when in fact his addiction and behavior were the real cause. Vince and Amy had started out as friends and that is all. Gary Chapman had a serious addiction problem and was very abusive toward Amy and the children. Amy was very careful to protect Gary from the potential damage this could have had on his career, and to keep the childrens father in a positive light. That is why she endured the scourn of the church and why she did little to attempt to defend herself. Gary's problem was pretty common knowledge in Nashville at the time but becasue he was Amy's husband and she was so well known it protected him.

Doeghostman,

You don't have a clue. In 1995 she said she had given her heart to another man. It's all water under the bridge now but the truth still matters.

Gary,

I feel your pain. I was recently divorced after a similar experience. My ex-wife was seeing another man while we were still together. She claimed that it was simply platonic, but the guy moved into our home the very day that I left and about 2-3 months after the divorce was final, she married the man. I can't prove that they had sex, but affairs don't always involve sex. I was also accused of being verbally and physically abusive to her and our kids. That lie was exposed after enduring almost 3 months of not being able to see or even talk to my kids, another 6-8 months of supervised visits and a psychologist's interview with both of us and our children.

I read an article where you said that you had such a huge need for justice and that time would eventually tell. Just want you to know that I totally understand and can identify with that. I can also identify with the struggle to forgive when you feel that need for justice. Every time a feel that, God's Spirit says, "You don't deserve to go to heaven either, but I still died for you." Wow, yes Lord...

I'm not saying that all of the reasons for the marital demise were only one person's fault, but it takes hard work to make a marriage work and it's irresponsible to seek the guidance of someone who is of the opposite sex and 'a friend' when you are having problems with your spouse (unless you place boundaries to protect yourself). That would be like taking off your clothes and sleeping in the same bed with someone that you care about and expecting 'nothing to happen'. At some point when you play with fire you get burned. The responsible thing to do would be to never put yourself into that situation in the first place. Guard your heart. Protect that which is most precious to you.

I don't mean to sound critical but after reading an excerpt, I suppose from a book that Amy helped write, about Amy, my instincts are loud and clear.  Amy Grant seems to have a major "me complex" and obviously has a huge name dropping compulsion.  These are not desirable characteristics and people that are like this are often self absorbed and spoiled making them hard to live with.  They can also be users...I wonder how many songs she stole from Gary.  I would bet she is a pretty dangerous and unsavory character.  How long do you think it will take for Vince to figure it out?  Then again, he does have a successful and profitable career that provides a nice material life for her...

Whatever the roles the players played in the fiasco of their breakup, it's safe to say that fault can be attributed to both parties.  That, and that the first casualty in a divorce is almost always whatever is objectively true.  As a person who has been divorced, and then married again to the same woman, I realize now that a successful marriage depends 100% on both people being in it to win it.  My wife and I will let nothing derail what we now have (twenty years on now, thank you very much).  I only wish that all couples who call themselves "Christian", and who are in the public eye, had that same level of commitment for one another.  I pray both for Amy and for Gary, but most of all I pray that any on-lookers don't look to them for an example of what a Christ-centered marriage should be.

Gary Chapman and Amy Grant divorced because Gary was a drug addict.  He was already an addict when they first married but she was not aware of it.  She tried to help him get clean, but he could not do it.  They tried to work on saving their marriage, including getting him clean and sober, but couldn't work it out.  The marriage covenant was broken, not by adultery, but by a failed commitment through Gary's the continued abuse of drugs.  Some of us are able to overcome our problems, others cannot.  Its hard to deal with, but when Gary abuse drugs, he also psychologically abused Amy.  No one can tolerate an abusive partner forever, and God has called us to live in peace.  Sometimes divorce is the only way to find that peace because we all fail in some way in life.

Texas Gadget.

You are wrong. My big problem was cocaine. I stopped doing it on Sept 2, 1986 and haven't seen it since. Your misinformed assumption is ignorant at best and, in truth, slanderous. I will ask that you properly identify yourself and stand up for what you surmise or, at the very least, retract your statement.

The abuse charge alone is enough for me to win in court.

It's a charge on which Amy herself would testify to the contrary.

Come out of hiding, coward.

It's sad that a man in his 50's still needs to get on these forums to defend himself and cares what everyone else thinks. If you have a new wife, why would you continue to comment on your ex wife and Vince on these forums? My guess is that you're not over your ex and that marriage #3 is not going to work out because you never got over #1.

Gary, I am truly sorry for your pain and will pray for your healing and peace. None of us are truly free in this world until the next, and we all come short.  I could look to my own life to see much worse than anything said of you sir.



I would not dare to offer advice here Gary, but in my life I had to forgive in order to be able to move on positively.  You may have done that already.



Amy's music was the first I heard after coming to Christ and so is and always be special to me. "El Shaddai" in a music video.  One of the first Christian music video's I think.  at least for me.



I will always love her and you as you were a team when I met you in ministry music interviews.

Whatever the issues were, are really none of our business. It's not for us to judge.  What happens between two people in a marriage is between them and them alone.  Commenting, whether it's your personal/religious beliefs or worse, hearsay, is harmful for many. Keep in mind there are still children involved.  It's hurtful for them to read untruths. Please, for the love of all that is good, let's stop talking about this topic.  It's done.  It's over.  Life has moved on for both of them and that's a good thing.



I've personally met Amy and Gary at different times in their lives.  They are just people folks.....people who have their beauty, intelligence, gifts, struggles and pains.  They are not perfect - none of us are.  We need to allow one another, espeically in this Christian sub-culture, the freedom to be ourselves in whatever stage of life we find ourselves in. And to be ever mindful to show love, compassion and understanding towards each other.



Like many, I wish them both the best.  May God continue to hold them and their families close to His heart.



Respectfully,



Gina

I would just love to see Gary out in the public offering his great gifts and talents again.  Miss seeing and hearing from him.  Gary,  I am so sorry that you have to feel like you are always defending yourself.  We are all sinners only saved by the grace of God and every one of us has to give an account how we have led our lives and we aren't perfect.  Please continue to write, sing and play for the true Church.!!!  What you have is a God given talent.  Use it for Him but allow us to hear it as well.  May you be blessed.

I just think it is sad that Gary and Amy could not make it work out. It has to be terribly hard on the whole family.

The music industry is a hard one at best, not very supportive of families overall.  I am sure that Gary and Amy had the same struggles with the touring and the dog eat dog world of the music industry as folks like myself have experienced.

That's not to give excuses for bad behavior to any of us, but just to say that their work was hard on their marriage.



I have worked as a recording artist for MCA and toured for over 20 years and I can tell ya from personal experience  that it is very hard on your marriage and your personal life.

I can see the hurt going on with both of them, and while you can blame either side for being a flawed human being, I would suggest we all try to remember all the good both Gary and Amy have done for many people and many charities.

Yes sadly, they are no longer married, but you must admit they must still love each other, and when they hear us slamming them over issues we know little to nothing of, it must hurt them deeply on many levels.



Myself, I truly miss seeing them together. I miss the days they had together at Riverstone farm and the "loft" on Moran road and all the incredible music they brought into my  home and my heart.

I can only think that they miss it all too and wish they could undo their mistakes like all the rest of us wish too.

Gary and Amy I wish you well always.  Sorry to hear about your dad Gary, I just lost my father to cancer in March

Gary C, I like your answer to gadget. You admitted you HAD a problem and that you have since that time not seen it. Although I liked and treasured Amy Grants singing..Its my understanding YOU wrote most of the songs. I had a similar experiance with my ex-wife and allegations of drug use...some true and some untrue. I am now remmaried, clean and have shared custody of my son. The best way to handle misrepresentations in my case, was to be kind and Christlike to my ex-wife. I dont care how Amy justified her cheating with Mr Gill, but it was wrong and sinful. I hope she has repented. Sometimes, you just cant make a marriage work. I understand you are remmaried, put it behind you and reach forward like Paul said. In any case I notice WOMEN always seem to justify when they cheat, while a man is demonized for the same sin. In any case I love your music and Praise the Lord he forgives us all for our short comings. Best Regards Eric Kentucky!!

Hey....we mess things up, all the time--it's because we're HUMAN. We are forgiven and loved by Jesus no matter what, and we don't earn it by 'being good', or 'not getting divorced', or whatever else you can come up with. Christians pointing the finger at others is exactly the opposite of what Jesus is all about. People (all of us--me too) need to forget about being better than someone else in a sin hierarchy, and accept His gift of grace and move on.  We try to live life better with Him, and we will continue to be human.


Catie Cooper wrote at 2010-12-03 19:29:33
I think these opportunities to hear other opinions and gather input is a ministry in itself.  Nothing confuses a loving spouse like the sudden withdrawal of affection from the one who promised to love, honor and cherish you "till death do us part."  After one partner has cheated, he/she has given his body to someone else.  He/she has become a part "the two shall become one" of the 3rd person.  His/her heart usually follows.  Drugs don't cause a marriage to fail, cheating does.  My husband of 29 years walked away and had a million excuses, saying he didn't love me anymore.  He gave his body away and his heart soon followed.  Gary, God knows the truth and I'm proud of you for standing for truth in you marriage.  I've been accused too though I didn't cheat. My husband acted loving to me until his double life finally caught up with him.  Who ended the marriage?  Not me.


Sam wrote at 2010-12-14 04:28:36
I would say that, in many ways, both Amy and Gary are to blame.  But I blame Amy more, since she actually ended the marriage.  She could have just moved out and stayed separated and single--that way, she wouldn't have been committing adultery at least.  So she wasn't happy--big deal.  How many people wouldn't be thrilled to be a famous millionaire singer in an "unhappy" marriage?  Besides, she had kids to think about too.  Did they want her to get a divorce?  As for Gary, he's now onto his third marriage, which seems to be just more adultery for him too.  I don't believe that God recognizes these adulterous remarriages.  I believe that, in His eyes, Amy and Gary are still married.  I wouldn't be surprised if Amy and Vince don't last (second marriages have a high rate of failure), nor would I be surprised if Gary's third marriage doesn't last either.  What a sad example for their kids.

Amy is not the same person she portrays in the media circle. This is unfortunate, as Vince is a very special man, and he only deserves the best. Gary, you were also very kind when I met you. Again, Amy is not as she appears. Period.


kellygal1959 wrote at 2011-01-31 06:00:37
In Gods eyes you are still married to the first person you married. Anything after is adultery. This is in the bible. She could have separated and he could have gotten help. I think friends with Vince is bull. I would never leave my husband like that and have another kid. However, no abuse is okay.

Gary should focus on his great gifts. I am wondering how he is doing today. Is he remarried? Is he happy at least with his life. I will not ever buy an amy grant album. what a hypocrite she is.

You know, the real winner is the Satan and his tactics, he snares us, blinds us, then steals from us, among other things our joy of salvation. God gave back to David the king his joy and peace. As long as we are hear on earth, not one of us is fit to throw the first stone. Shame on us and our wanting to find the one to blame. God loves Gary Chapman and loves Amy Grant, and sin He paid for at the Cross of Calvary. In Romans 8.28 he says- We are assured and know that all things work together and are for good to and for those who love God and are called according to His design and purpose.- God's plan for us is to bring us to the resemblance of His Son Jesus Christ. He allows Satan to work on our weaknesses, but in the end it is to God's Glory. I can't wait to see Gary and Amy performing on stage, reconciled if not already done...

God Bless Both of You...


lisa mc wrote at 2011-04-05 18:23:27
Just my 2 cents worth, that is not worth much more than that....Just read an AARP article about Amy Grant and Vince Gill where she admitted she was completely infatuated with Gill while still married to Gary Chapman. It was so strong that Gary knew of it. She mentioned that her marriage to Chapman was problematic from the start. It has been mentioned on this forum that Chapman was a drug addict. My thoughts are that that is totally irrelevant. Even if it is a fact, drug addiction is not biblical grounds for divorce. Amy was a married woman infatuated with a married man. Her husband and this man knew of it. She is an adulteress and her happy marriage to Vince Gill does not erase that fact.


Jerome G. wrote at 2011-04-08 19:04:08
What amazes me , is that Jesus, the only One who is sinless, never threw the first stone when the adulteress was up for stoning. He told her, Woman, where are your accusers? Has no man condemned you? She answered, no one, Lord! And Jesus said, I do not condemn you either. Go on your way and from now on sin no more(Jn 8.1-11. I wonder what Jesus would be writing on the ground as the Scribes and Pharisees would bring both Amy and/or Gary to be stoned. How many accusers would be left? Would we be in a position to throw the first stone?

In no way does the Bible say to divorce. God's plan for marriage is still til death do us part. God allows divorce when adultery is the reason, but even there, it's because we have a hard heart, full of unforgiveness. What happened to Amy and Gary is not what God intended for marriage. When we let our fleshly desires get the most of us, sin creeps in, little by little until we don't see God's Will but our own will and lose control over our repetitive sinning. We all make bad choices, we all have regrets. We forget, we were bought at a great price. Jesus paid for our sins, so that we live for Him, be a reflection of Him.  

We don't even know any intimate details on their divorce and the reasons why. One day, they both will have to answer to God, and we won't be there to accuse or defend. Let's let God do the judging. In the meantime, let's pray that God would glorify Himself through this divorce. In the end, we should do all things to the glory of God, not our own... Let's pray for them...

Here's an excellent article about judging:  



http://www.biblebelievers.com/jmelton/Judging.html



In short, Christians are commanded to judge between right and wrong, and not be utterly timid about the whole matter.



As far as knowing all the intimate details on their divorce and all the reasons, we don't need to know every little thing to determine that the divorce was not biblical.  We know the main points:  1) Amy, not Gary, chose the divorce; 2) Gary was not involved with another woman during their marriage; 3) Amy was not physically in danger from living with Gary.  It's pretty obvious that Amy ended the marriage mainly to be with Gill.



I think it's interesting how so many think we have to know all the details.  Did we know 100% of the details behind the O.J. Simpson case in the '90s?  How many things do we *ever* completely know all the details of?  But do you know anyone today who says, "You know what--O.J. Simpson may be innocent.  We simply didn't know all the facts.  We have absolutely no right to form an opinion about whether he was guilty or not.  I think he deserves the benefit of the doubt--in fact, he may be looking for the real killers as we speak!"?  ;)



A couple more thoughts:



If Amy were simply a pop singer, nobody here would care whether her divorce was biblical or not.  For instance, let's take Shania Twain.  She recently got a divorce.  But do you see lots of discussion about whether it was biblical?  No.  And just why not?  Because (to my knowledge) she has never called herself a born-again Christian, and certainly has never made a living off singing Christian music.  OTOH, without Christian music, it's safe to say that Amy Grant would never have had a singing career at all.  And she still includes Christian music in her concerts.  So it's right to point out the hypocrisy in her behavior, especially when AFAIK she has never publicly repented of her divorce.    

 

Amy's divorce violated the golden rule.  If Gill were considering leaving and she got down on her knees and begged him to stay, would she want him to leave her for another woman?  Or, if Amy's mother had wanted to divorce her father, would she have said, "Go for it, Mom!  Dad's just cramping your style, and you deserve to be happy!"  I seriously doubt it.  Furthermore, the divorce must have been devastating for her kids.  Besides, according to the following article, children of divorce die on average almost 5 years earlier than children who have never experienced the divorce of their parents:



http://www.huffingtonpost.com/katie-hafner/divorces-surprising-effec_b_842892.ht



No matter how you slice it, according to the Bible, Amy Grant's divorce was wrong.  And I don't believe that God considers her "marriage" with Vince to be a real one, but rather an adulterous relationship, which can never produce lasting happiness.  Also, the Bible says that we reap what we sow, and sowing seeds of adultery will only produce disastrous consequences in the end, no matter how rosy things may seem for a while.    



Having said all that, I do agree with Jerome G.'s advice that we should pray for Amy and Gary (and their kids).  That is definitely a good thing to do.

What's amazing is that the only people involved in this divorce happen to be the Chapman/Grant family: Gary, Amy and their 3 children.  For whatever reasons, which are their own, they couldn't make their marriage work.  Really folks, we are all human here, divorce is a reality.  I don't see Amy or Vince on here needing to defend anything that has happened.  Noone like to see their marriage fail.  It is ones choice whether he/she feels the need to go public with their personal "laundry".  Being famous or not, people make decisions that may not be what is best for both parties involved.  When children are involved, that makes things more complicated.  Love doesn't always last til death do us part.  It doesn't mean we are any less human, it means we are definitely human.  None of us were present during 100% of the Chapman/Grant union, nor were we present for 100% of the decisions/finality of their divorce.  Who are we to pass judgment?  Noone but Gary and Amy truly know their reasons for their relationship beginning and ending.  If one, both or neither of the parties decide to comment on this panel, it is their decision to do so.  May I add that if one does decide to pass comment, be prepared to read comments from strangers such as myself, be they negative or positive.  What is most important, through all of this, is that their children have remained the focus. Gary and Amy have children together that were the product of their time together, and are the product of their time apart.  Moving on is a hard and difficult thing to do.  Some do it easier than others, but it doesn't mean that someone else was waiting in the wings.  This last sentence doesn't mean that I am taking anyone's side.  Pain only lasts as long as we allow it to.  Some choose to wallow in it, some choose to spend time with it and decipher it, while some choose to deal with it and move forward.  May all partied involved in the Chapman/Grant family be blessed with love and support, and have the ability to look to the future with a smile and a song in their hearts.  I have followed both Gary and Amy through the media for many years.  Each of these wonderful people have a gift that has entertained many people for many years.  May they be blessed with the ability to do so for many years to come.  If either one continue to feel pain and suffering due to their marriage breakdown, may they look to their families and friends, and fans for that matter, for support and counseling to help them look to better days ahead.  Live is short, love can be a strong and powerful feeling, and we can live our life with regret or choose to live it to the fullest.  We have the power of choice, I hope they use it to their fullest advantage.

What concerns me about Gary Chapman and Amy Grant's divorce is how it allows the unbelievers to despise the name of God.  After all, how can someone sing about the "power of God" who created the Universe in front of thousands of people, but then admit that this same God was not powerful enough to save their marriage.  Christians, above all else, should protect the name of the Living God.

I didn't know till now what really happened about there divorce. I lost my interest in any thing Amy Grant sang after the divorce. I went to a Billy Graham Crusade in San Antonio,TX. and she didn't sing one song about GOD and she had changed so much. I hurt for she gave my friends and family a bad image of a Christian. However reading today messages I think about how we all can hurt the Christian walk and we must realize it's GOD we hurt more than anyone. I want GOD'S forgiveness too and that's exactly we need to do for others who have made mistakes along the way. When we don't forgive others for what they have done then we have added to the hurt of Christ. To be really free we must forgive and allow it to spread. Forgiveness is better to spread than adding to the falls of man. Forgiveness it why Christ died in the first place. Amy and Gary I pray you'll be set free for the sake of Christ. I now feel free from my feeling toward Amy GOD see's them and HIS whether we do or not. Precious is the Blood over our sins, Jan for Tx

I think you are welcome to exercise discernment and judge. But if you weren't asked for an opinion from the parties involved. And you really don't know enough about their personal situation discretion strikes me as the better part of wisdom.  It seems in too many cases people are really voicing their pain and distaste that one of their own whom they admired and were inspired by seemed to let them down. Whether people are giving Amy and Gary a pass or condemning their divorce, much of the discussion strikes me as gossiping and sloppily applied scripture. In many cases here slander. Look at how many Christians here lack discernment to tell they are having a chat with someone pretending to be Gary Chapman.



I recall Leslie Phillips The Turning album expressing to her Christian fans about her life as a Christian artist:

You stripped my heart with your accusations

You shut me into an affectation

Loosen the pressure you choke me with. I can't breathe.

Many Christian people don't see how corporately ruthless they can be.

I've seen Christians tear into Amy over a dress they didn't like or a candid onstage comment that was not sinful but one they didn't think was proper to express. Such busybodies we have.  


Ryan wrote at 2011-08-27 01:26:31
I think atomic's comment about not being asked for an opinion from the parties involved is amusing.  From exactly how many public figures do we wait for a request for an opinion before we venture to make one?  Do we need to be asked by Obama what we think about his job performance before we offer our view?  Or do we need to be asked by Casey Anthony & her lawyers and/or the opposing side what we think before we dare state any sort of opinion?  



It's sad too that the "Jennifer Ford" mentality seems to prevail among many of the comments as well.  That is, if you don't have a videotape that shows you every single detail that went on, or a written transcript that describes ad nauseam all the nitty-gritty of the situation, then you have no right to form any opinion whatsoever.  Connecting the dots is strictly forbidden.  With that kind of logic floating around out there, it's no wonder Casey Anthony walked free.  



I do agree that being a gossip or a busybody is sinful.  But there's a huge difference between expressing honest criticism and disappointment about a Christian singer's willful decision to end her marriage, and just making mean-spirited, petty comments.  Of course, it's not for us to judge Amy's heart--that's up to God.  However, it doesn't take a Ph.D. in biblical studies to see that Amy's divorce was wrong and hurt a lot of people.  Of course, we are to forgive her, but that doesn't mean we go around excusing her behavior or rationalizing what she did.  Also, if we have a beam in our own eye (i.e., we're initiating a sinful divorce from our own spouse or something similar), then we have no right going around pointing the finger at Amy Grant.    



Anyway, this has been an interesting discussion.  It is certainly important to make sure we do not engage in slander, but it is not wrong to have an honest opinion about the behavior of a public figure, which has affected thousands of her fans as well.

Please check out the Bible's teaching on FORGIVENESS! God does it, we should too. We can be forgiven of ALL SIN. We have to do what God wants us to, according to the Bible.  Remember, there is only ONE sin that is unforgivable in God's eyes.

I'm saddened by the judging that I have read in many of these comments. It is not our place to pass judgement on the actions or behaviors of others. That is God's place and his place alone. We do not know all the reasons that factored into this failed marriage or any Christian's failed marriage for that matter. In today's society the best of Christians struggle to walk the path that Christ wants us to. Not a one of us is worthy cast the first or last stone. I, for one, plan to merely pray that both Amy and Gary, and all Christians can continue to learn and grow in their faith.

I think it's interesting how a lot of folks on here keep criticizing the remarks of other posters and then hypocritically tossing out the phrase, "Judge not!"  Well, you're judging those other posters!  Why don't you take your own advice and just keep silent then if you're not happy with their remarks?  Or is it simply OK for you to judge, but not for anyone else??  Why don't you learn to be more tolerant of others' opinions?

Sam said "She could have just moved out and stayed separated and single--that way, she wouldn't have been committing adultery at least.  So she wasn't happy--big deal.  How many people wouldn't be thrilled to be a famous millionaire singer in an "unhappy" marriage? "   

 Sam, excuse my french, but you're an idiot! Who are YOU to decide if someone should get a divorce or not? Amy Grant doesn't have to answer to me or you for her life decisions.

I still remember - way before any of this became public - when Amy, on one of her televised Christmas specials mentioned "our neighbors Vince and Janis Gill." Something about the way she said it. I looked at my wife and said, "She's got a thing for Vince Gill." My wife said I was crazy. As a man, I could see it a mile away. They should re-air that episode sometime. Funny how Janis was still in the picture then. Pretty convenient, isn't it.

About Amy Grant, I think she is gifted

Musically and as a song writer. She is Human and fell from a pedestal over her divorce and marriage to Vince Gill.

I also think she is spoiled, used to getting everything she wants. She did everything to justify her marriage to Gill. It is too bad because I am no lover a fan, I can't listen to her music anymore.

I want you all to know that there will be no more abuse in the eyes of me!  How dare you all stand there and think you know the truth.  For I am the truth and forgiveness comes through me. Do not Judge Gary and Amy.  That is for me when it is time for them to enter My Kingdom.  Gary is a wonderful man who has made right all of his wrongs.  Amy, well she is a hottie.   I love them both as they are my children.

Marriage is difficult at best some times and when wed we stand before God first and family and friends second and promise to one another to stay together in good times and bad, richer or poorer and in sickness and in health.  The good times and bad times is an interesting part of the promise.  When we are faced with difficult times in our marriage we are to draw close to God and stand true on the promise we made.  Trust me, I have been in some real bead times and God has blessed me with an amazing love and peace even when the storm is still surrounding me now in this very moment.  So, with that said, I believe God could have done the same if one was willing to stand on the promise.  No one knows the exact situation Gary and Amy faced only God does, but I do know the power of God's abiding love and amazing power

The real story is the divorce rate among evangelical Christian couples, rates that exceed non-Christians.  We have gotten away from our values, matter of fact, many of us Christians wouldn't be able to list their core values and how they are lived out in their behavior.  Core values are to be lived by when things are difficult.  It's not about being perfect it’s about courage.  It's about us as Christians being honorable to our kids and family and living to our core values.  Because of infidelity (emotional and sexual) rampant in the church and the church is ill prepared to handle this; divorce rates continue to increase while non-Christians look at us and say "well, there's no difference".  You see, either we are saved by Grace and the gift of the Holy Spirit lives in us which enable us live by our core values during tough times....or it's all a myth.  And I'm afraid that's what the outside world thinks of Christians.

I'm not sure I'd call it arguing.

My evangelical husband left me for an 18-year-old woman, and though it happened some years ago, there is still pain I feel from that betrayal. Even if I've gotten on with my life and forgiven the man in my heart, pain is pain, and if you loved someone like this, you know what I mean.

This discussion is about Amy Grant, who is in the spotlight singing about family and Jesus, and who obviously had feelings for her neighbor enough to look beyond her marriage vows. Every time I hear her voice on the radio or TV, I change the channel, perhaps because she reminds me of my own loss. Who knows.

I am pleased to see Gary has gone back to his 'roots' with www.ahymnaweek.com I have watched many of his video's lately and it really brings me back to the simple gospel message with the timeless hymns. Gary you are a blessed and talented man. "Run the race to win" and keep up with music and writing. I will be supporting you.


Bryan wrote at 2012-01-08 08:36:39
So Gary is still living in adultery with his third "wife," yet he's recording hymns and videos?  I'm glad he's trying to get close to God, but the Bible says that obedience is better than sacrifice.  I think it's safe to say that obedience is more pleasing to God than the recording of worship music as well, however good that may be.

Amy and Gary are not the first to get a divorce. Amy and Gill not the first to conduct an alleged affair. There are many others to add to this list in the christian music industry. There are many christians in churches and the like who have had affairs. None of us are without sin. Nor are any of us in a position to judge. Having said that, it is not the sin that bothers me, it is lack of repentance.



The difference I see is the christians I know who have made mistakes have turned from their sin and sought repentant hearts. The problem I have in the amy and Vince story is When I read articles about Amy and Vince, the story is replayed of how she hugged him from behind and had strong feelings for him but didn't see how she could be with him since they were both married, makes jokes about spending less time at the golf club since they married, since she is not stalking Vince as a way to see him any more. I don't think her statements are appropriate for a woman still singing christian music.



The message seems to be that we are all supposed to be tolerant to sin these days. I don't believe it is judging other people to say if you are going to stand up and stand out for christ I believe your life should reflect a close walk with the God you are singing about. And if you seek out sin, and stalk it, and then find it, and it finds you, then you are without excuse.

How about a different way of looking at this?



Does anyone who has read or contributed to this know all that took place in (or even outside of) their marriage? The answer is: "No." If we know the truth, then we can hold it up to the standards set in the Scriptures. Until then, we are undeniably called to not pass judgment - on the actions (and never on the people). Much of this conversation has been ill focused, primarily by those who feel judged, themselves. Here's a thought: rather than try to imagine what Amy or Gary did or did not do, what might or might not have happened, and how you should respond to all of that which you don't know, how about praying for them? How about praying for their children? How about going to a pastor or leader in your church and asking how you can help serve those in marital difficulty?



Don't worry: there are enough overly zealous and damaging Christians who are quick to call sin sin. They'll never stop until God stops them.



In the meantime, we need believers to be vocal in their loving acts towards one another: "by this the world will know... ." I can throw all of the Bible verses you'd like at this, and more. I can tell you more stories of Christians who have brutalized other believers. I could bore you with endless truthful accounts of self-proclaimed disciples of Jesus have done more tarnish His good name by destroying those whom He loves. What I'd love, as a pastor, as a scholar and as a family man, is not dread the "so what do you do" question when I board a plane or meet someone at a social event. The world knows us more for our judgment and hatred, not our love. Time for me to pray.


narelle wrote at 2012-01-17 08:30:51
Wow, I have read some of these comments with such surprise! As christians we are taught to love, forgive and pray for one another.



Ok so Amy Grant & Gary Chapman divorced....but.... how many of you can truly truly say that you knew what was going on behind closed doors? None of you!!



Remember that this public forum can also be seen by Amy & Gary's children and all other children closely related to them.



Let's not judge Amy Grant, Vince Gill, Gary Chapman and his wife, they have the right to privacy & respect.

In November, I discovered an e-mail letter my wife had written to her high school sweet heart, claiming that he was the only true love of her life, and that she wanted no other. She also said she was preparing to divorce me-this after 14 years of marriage. I know I cannot do anything about another's choice. I chose to love and serve her because I refuse to be eaten up with anger. I also know that God is greater than my pain. I am in graduate school at this time, and will divorce her after I graduate next year. In the mean time, I chose to serve and to be the best father I can be to my two daughters. I am truly sorry for what you went through, but as I said, I know God is greater than anything the world, flesh or devil can manifest. I just thought I would share this. God bless you.

"We shouldn't say anything bad"..."We shouldn't judge"...."We don't know what happened in their marriage"...."We should forgive"...."We should pray for them"  Fact is:  They are a Christian couple who divorced.  Divorce is wrong, and remarrying is wrong.  Fact, plain and simple.  Another fact, it happens all the time, so why judge?  Fine, but only if Gary and Amy stay out of the spotlight.  They have lost their 'right' to represent Christ.  I wouldn't judge anyone else, but they put themselves out there to be judged.  It seems very hypocritical for them to sing and perform in front on millions, telling us how to 'be good' how to have the 'right relationship' when they failed publicly.  They want to be 'popular', make money, make a career, off of living a Christian life.  They lost that right when they stopped living that Christian life.  We all sin, but I'm not in the spotlight, I'm not a role model for thousands.  Why can't they just live their lives privately now?  Do they think they are above the Lord's standards?  BTW - Just because I post my opinion doesn't mean I'm not praying for them also.

I am not surprised by all the negative things said about Amy,however the people that I find to Judge the worse are Christians,Jesus didn't come for the healthy, He came for the sick, which by the way is mankind. DEEP WITHIN ALL OUR HEARTS WE KNOW OUR OWN TRUTH AND ALL HAVE FALLEN SHORT OF THE GLORY OF GOD.To judge is just as big a sin as is divorce. Amy is the real thing,listen to her music ,she doesn't claim to be Jesus,she sings of love,God's forgiveness for all of us that have sinned ,which by the way is everyone,including Christians, The difference between Christians one has faith and believes he is forgiven for any  sin, unsaved just to understand the concept,that a man Jesus Christ died on the cross for these sins,even the Christians who continue to judge.Jesus said"Father forgive them,for they know  not what they do.

Gary,

I would like to thank God for your life. In 1986, in another country, I found God through one of your songs, "finally", currently I'm a pastor, and, that song, still connects my weakness with the holiness of God.

I wish you the best, hoping to be blessed by your music again.


JesusOurhope wrote at 2012-03-16 01:23:18
I really like Amy Grants voice and especially two of her songs, "Thy Word" and "EL Shaddi". I am not trying to be against her, I do not personally know her. Though, as Christians we know the Bible teaches that God is against divorce, and he only allows for this in the instance of infidelity. Even if there is infidelity this isn't even a command do divorce it is just an allowance, reconciliation and forgiveness is always the best way. From what I understand Amy Grant divorced her husband, without any Biblical grounds, and has not confessed(admitted) she sinned. "If we confess our sins he is faithful and just to forgive us, and cleanse us from all unrighteousness." I hope she has admitted-agreed with Gods word about this.


StephanieLynnMick wrote at 2012-04-29 07:51:18
As I read through these comments, I find myself remembering why I stopped going to church and why my 3 year old son has only been to church a few times in his life. While we may be able to look at the situation and conclude that Amy Grant had entertained thoughts of being with another man while still married to Gary Chapman, are we really given license to then gossip about it as though there is some merit in doing so? This reminds me of the prayer chain phone calls that I overheard as a child, during which all the gory details of someone else's personal business were discussed, and the required "we need to pray for them" was uttered in order to justify the gossip. It doesn't matter how you package it, gossip is gossip. We have all done it, and it is an easy trap to fall into, but it makes Jesus and His people look bad when we are circling our gossip chain prey like vultures, just waiting for the right moment to attack.



Yes, adultery, divorce, etc...makes the church look bad. But so does kicking our brothers and sisters when they are already down.

Not even sure why I am replying to these post.  Why are we talking about something that happened 12 years ago?!?!  Any how... What he did or she did or didn't do is in the past.  I have seen people make mistakes and then God forgive them and bless them.  God's mercies are new every morning.   God obviously has forgiven Amy and Vince for anything wrong that they may have done. He has been really blessing them over the last 12 years.  Oh and by the way a sin is a sin.. God does not look at any one one sin differently.  Thankfully we have Christ who died for our sins. I think it is time for people to let go of the grudge. You are missing out on some awesome music by Amy if you are still angry.  


barry putnam wrote at 2012-06-20 08:34:54
Gary,  I would wish that I had been able to find some way to be supportive for you years ago, as you were enduring such pure emotional anguish, that is the loss of your wife and family. I too was losing mine at that time, and I hope to explain some things about my history that pertains. I first was a big fan of Amy's; I had and truly loved virtually all of her "my Father's Eye's" album, on LP. played it all the time while studying my college coursework, in Chattanooga. Thought she was so pretty and had fantasies of  meeting and possibly winning her myself. Well; I know I'm not anything to anyone, and I sincerely prayed for your and her happiness when my continued interest informed me that she had married. Years pass, I find myself noting that I'm not impressed by Amy's career progression after that initial album. Made me wonder if that voice could have truly been so convincing, but still be, in truth, insincere in devotion to God and Christ. Of course, I knew nothing of your marriage, then or any dissension, possible addiction, etc. I entered into a marriage myself in Sept 86, and to a woman from Philippines, and we had a girl and boy by 91. I know now that my reasons for marrying then were my own, SPECIFICALLY NOT HIS, and she was marrying me in order to "use" me also. Therein lay the dual responsibility for the failure. I decided I could no longer support Amy's career, though I certainly had to agree that her vocal talent is "God-given" and substantial. I just could no longer get a witness from the Holy Spirit, from listening to her tunes during the 80's and 90's...and that grieved me. I came to see you performing at a concert just once, that being at the Cincinnati Zoo, in about '97 summer;  I had bought tix for my two kids also, but had to attend solo, for my ex-wife denied me the chance to bring them once learning that there would be a Christian-themed concert occurring there. I enjoyed the show, but I could tell, via the same Witness, that You were hurting and not so much into it. Also,on WAKW, or WFCJ, I used to listen to a regular radio show that you would be an announcer for, but soon that came to an end. I did a bit of searching, and found that there was a divorce occurring for you and Amy,and I too was enduring this same. I was against the split, found I could do nothing to stop the train. Was accused of awful lies, so that I could be painted as an abandoner, and had to go thru supervised-visits only, and the gradual progression toward freer visits. Though my ex never remarried, she very soon caused the loss of our home and equity, and moved in with her boyfriend, bringing, of course, our two children. This was a Hell for me to endure for the next 7 years.

Enough about me, for now. I got more into YOUR music, though it became tough to find except on Napster. Sorry to say, I guess I only bought one album of yours, but I heard in your voice a Witness, with my own broken spirit and the Holy Spirit. I couldn't really learn whether there was some aspect of your life which made your own split "your own fault", but to learn that Amy took up so immediately with vince, and then to hear that so soon thereafter, she would be bearing him a child, well, I can only say I empathized with you.

I must also say that I can't really know whether God has brought you thru, as is promised, in His Word, for those who persevere and draw close to Him, even as they suffer and bear their own cross.  I would offer to testify though, that for me, He HAS brought me thru the pain and sorrow, which I must also report nearly caused me to destroy myself. He has shown me the truth about how my first marriage was NOT His will, and that His Plan for me could only be accomplished by my realization of our mutual mistake in marrying for such selfish reasons.  He has caused me to meet, come to know, and wait upon His Will for a new lady, another Filipina, but one which has been SOOOO different. She has become my Gift from Him, and I waited for her for > 5 yrs during which we only had a growing LTR based over Internet.  We've been married 3+years now, and she is with me here in TN. She and I just returned from our first visit to Holy Lands in Israel. Though we may never have children(He knows!), we are a living testimony to His restoration power. I hope and pray that you too have learned the lesson He would have you to learn through the ordeal he carried you to and hopefully thru. I pray that He has forgiven any wrong of your own, and brought you restoration for your spirit and life. I would love to share more with you, but must leave this up to you alone, assuming that you can learn of me where I may not ask for info of yours. I offer prayer for your children who have endured a grievous ordeal as well, and ask that you pease remember mine in your own fervent prayers. May God bless you again, my brother in Christ! #REx- please share this w/ Gary, even if you must deny it for publishing on the thread, and Thanks!#

I'm not feeling well today, so I got on the computer & ended up here reading this forum. My reaction is that I feel freaked out by it all. The first time I listened to Amy & Gary's collaborated album "Songs From The Loft" Amy sang on the song "We Believe In God" I think is was, anyhow. I think she sang "Life is hard and may not get easier". I felt then in December of 1993 that Amy & Gary were struggling, yet I hoped then that I was wrong. But life is hard and we all do need Jesus to make it through it. Actually I think that was part of the lyrics too. I wore that cassette years ago & I'm still looking for a replacement CD of the album. I love Amy & Gary to this day for what their work has done for me since 1980. I'm a nurse whose life work was to help people. In December 2001 I suffered a stroke while working with patients, I don't remember anything from the stroke when it happened or things around that time,just what my wife has told me. The healing process was really rough & still is 12 years later. I can no longer take care of patients because I have trouble taking care of my own self. I remember months of no sleep & me physically unable to close my eyes. My wife knew that I loved Amy Grant so she got me a portable cd player with head phones & kept changing out Amy's cds for me. With a stroke you can remember some things from your past or you may not be able to, every stroke patient is affected differently. I remembered how soothing Amy's voice and lyrics were for me & that helped calm the chaos the stroke turned my mind into. After about 2 months of listening to Amy's cd's, I could finally get sleep with closed eyes, not open! Thank-you, thank-you, thank-you Amy for your life's work!!! It has changed my life for the better. I still listen to your music daily & it drives my kids crazy! At 50 I try to listen to all types of music but I need my Amy Grant music every day! Her old or new music, I love it all! God Bless Everyone! And thank-you Jesus for every new day to say "Look What Has Happened To Me", (a song from Amy's "Never Alone" album, her 3rd studio album from 1980). Keith, from San Antonio Texas.

Please, leave all these people alone. I'm sure they all sinned one way and another, as we all do, and the sin of a marriage failure is no more shocking to God than any other sin.  The fall-out from a marriage failure with children, is different from other sins - but then, why are we obsessing so much about sin, anyway?  The Bible is quite clear about the remedy for sin - the once and for all sacrifice of the Lord Jesus Christ.  Did He think that after His work on the Cross, people would stop sinning? Of course not.  Is a failed marriage and subsequent remarriage a worse sin than, say, slandering someone's name and ruining their career or reputation, while staying righteously married?  I don't see why.

Jesus said lots of things were sinful, and suggested we cut off our own hand if it causes us to sin. Do we take this literally? We wouldn't dream of it. But when Jesus talks about divorce, in an attempt to show up the easy divorce of the Mosaic Law, and to highlight the fact that Grace and love and a tender heart are effective in keeping a marriage together - well, it's turned into another rigid Law. The Law kills, but the Spirit gives life.



Those Christians who have had unhappy marriages and divorced, with or without adultery, are answerable to God for their part in the failure.  

If they divorce, then they are both free to remarry, legally - and how God sees this remarriage will be revealed by Him on the Day.  Meanwhile, those of us who are so spotlessly perfect that we feel free to throw stones at others who have not matched up to our rigid standards, will also find out how God views our attitudes - but it will be too late to repent then.

I don't like anything that puts him into a negative light as this has. I know he has had a part in it but when you have half the world in divorces even in the church somethings gone wrong all of us that have been through divorces are comitting adlutery then I have my first marriage going and my husband I'm his third wife. I bet there are many on here commenting that are divorced or on a second marriage. Christ can forgive anything if its repented and still blesses even when we mess up which we all do. my pastor once commented to me that if he had a dollar for how many ppl hes councled in his office over the years whom said they didn't love thier spouce anymore he said he would be a millionare. I'am not amy fan.  I get sick of seeing her everywhere vince is mentioned.

I have no use for her I think she stick like glue to him becuase it can happen to her or shes not going to let that happen to herself.Having a kid won't stop a divorce obviously since they both left their previous spouces.

and had other children with them. If any of thse ppl involved amy gary vince don't want to have comments then amy needs to stop rubbing it in. and trying to convince everyone that everything is hunkie dorie...

I'm in my 3rd marriage now, have been for just over a year. For some of us who are in recovery we have a lot coming at us on a daily basis and it is hard to make the best decisions for ourselves even with prayer. It is called "irrational behavior". Sounds like there are too many judges and not enough humans on this forum. Everyone has something in their lives that they've messed up on. Unfortunately, being a celebrity #Christian or not# puts your life under a microscope for too many amateur scientists to analyses!

I am amazed at how many self-righteous people come on here and say, "Mind your own business!!!"



Well, why don't *they* mind their own business and let others speak what they please???  They have no problems judging the other posters, while at the same time they spew out their hypocritical "Judge not!" spiel.

I love Amy, so I was watching some of her performances on live TV that were long,long ago. in 2 performances Gary disrespected her twice. Those 2 performances she just shrugged it off & started to sing in spite of Gary being mean to her. There was a later time when Gary was hosting a show & Amy was invited on the show to sing a duet with Gary. Amy said to Gary, "Thanks for inviting me." Gary rudely cut her off & meanly said: "just sing the song" Amy couldn't shrug it off this time & she started to cry on national television. The emotional abuse was evident this time. No one man should mistreat his wife this way, especially in public! By the way the duet they sang "Doubly Good To You", a song about God being doubly good to you for giving you a person in your life to love!I don't blame Amy for divorcing Gary. Good job Amy for kicking Gary The Jerk to the curb! Keith

Thanks for the interesting info, Keith.  I suspected that Gary was emotionally abusive.  Do I blame Amy for wanting to leave Gary?  Not really.  But she also had kids to deal with.  While supposedly making her own life "better," was leaving Gary going to make her kids' lives better too?  Did they want her to leave?



Besides, according to the Bible, her marriage to Vince Gill was obviously sinful, and I don't believe God even recognizes it.  (OTOH, the Bible does allow separation when a mate is impossible to deal with.  However, you have to remain celibate if you do not reconcile.)  


Keith wrote at 2012-09-07 04:29:37
I read that the children were emotionally abused too; as well as Amy. In 1997 she took the children & left temporally. Later the family reunited for a short time before the divorce. Once the divorce was final Amy & Vince Gill started dating; no adultery was committed.

 I remember Vince saying that Amy"s young children didn't accept him for awhile. Vince asked Amy's children if it was okay for him to marry their mother& Amy's son told Vince that: "if you hurt my mother, I will kill you!" Her son was 12 at the time. Children are usually negatively affected by divorce no matter the reason for the divorce. Actually all parties are negatively affected. Divorce is very difficult to go through for anyone.

 

 I have a question for Rick: If one divorces for reasons other than adultery; you said that you must remain celibate if you do not reconcile. When will that person be able to remarry then according to God's requirement? Is it only when the ex spouse passes away?  Just like in the original wedding vows "unto death do we part?"  Keith  


Rick wrote at 2012-09-09 06:32:22
Hi, Keith.  First off, the only permissible reason Jesus gave for divorce is the Greek word "porneia."  Many, many Bible scholars do not believe that "porneia" should be translated as "adultery."  (And many Bible versions, of course, do not.)  Furthermore, the Early Church (who understood the Scriptures far better than we ever will) did *not* allow divorce and remarriage for adultery.



Of course, in Amy's case, none of this really matters because Gary never committed adultery before Amy left (that we know of).  So, according to the Bible, their marriage tie would have to be severed (by death) before remarriage would be permitted.  So, you are correct that death of the ex-spouse is the only time when remarriage is permitted.



I didn't know that Gary was abusive to the kids too.  That's sad.  I don't really blame Amy for wanting to leave.  It was the remarriage to Vince that was sinful.  And, of course, putting one's kids through needless heartbreak is wrong as well.  If Amy had just decided to live alone with the kids, I doubt the situation would have been quite as devastating for them.  



Besides, did Amy's "remarriage" really solve anything?  In one interview a long time ago, she said, "There's not a week that doesn't go by that I don't really cry out from the soles of my feet and just say, 'God, let me go back. How could this have worked out differently?'"  Personally, I suspect that all the exciting "magic" and "chemistry" she had with Vince has worn off by now.  In the end, the grass is rarely greener on the other side.  Unfortunately, it takes some folks years to learn that.

Metro Police arrested Gary Chapman and charged him with driving under the influence Sunday night.



Police say Chapman, who was once married to Amy Grant, was clocked at 49 in a 30 mile per hour zone.



After they stopped him, police said Chapman smelled of alcohol, had bloodshot eyes and admitted he'd been drinking.



During the field sobriety test, police said Chapman fell against the vehicle twice while standing on one leg and registered 0.157 on the breathalyzer test (0.08 is the legal limit).



Metro Police said they also found a small amount of marijuana and a marijuana pipe in Chapman's pocket.

A few thoughts:



1. Grant met Gill at the end of 1993.  In 1994, Grant recorded a cover of Carole King's "It's Too Late" for the "Tapestry Revisted" tribute album.  Coincidence?



3. Gill's ex-wife Janice said that she found a love note from Grant in Gill's golf bag in 1994.  Neither Grant nor Gill ever denied that, yet have always insisted that they were not romantically involved until after Vince divorced Janice in 1997 and Grant left Chapman. When asked what he thought about that, Chapman replied, "Could I answer? Yeah. Will I answer? Probably not. I think by Amy's admission they've been very dear friends for years. I suspect most people can add. I'll leave that to their mathematical abilities."



3. Grant has repeatedly said that the divorce was "God's will" and used it as justification for walking out of marital counseling with Chapman.  Chapman's response:  "It was not God's will that we divorced. It wasn't. That was not His plan.  Did we allow God to do all He could do? Unquestionably no. No, we did not. 'Irreconcilable differences' is such a lame and hollow phrase. That's what you say when you're afraid to say anything. It's the legalese that allows you to walk away. From my vantage point, we had one irreconcilable difference: I wanted her to stay and she wanted to leave. Everything else, God could have reconciled."



4. Grant makes virtually no reference to Chapman in her autobiography, but lavishes praise on Gill throughout.  Perhaps she kept mum about any "abuses" that have been chronicled here per some agreement, but her disdainful attitude about a 17-year marriage made a huge impression on me and reinforced what I had long seen as a self-centered (not God-centered) personality.

Jason wrote at 2012-10-08 07:08:55
That's pretty wild that Grant hardly talks about Chapman at all in her autobiography.  I suspect that means she's still filled with guilt over her divorce and has never really come to terms with it.



As for Grant being self-centered, yes, she's given that impression in many ways.  It seems that, after the '80s, Grant's attitude toward God became, "Thanks for helping me out.  Now I'll take the wheel."  Why did Grant go "pop" in the first place?  Was that God's will?  I suspect not.  My educated guess is that she craved two things:  1) more money and 2) more fame.  Both of those belong to Mammon.  From '91 on, God moved to the back burner in her music--and on her '97 album, He wasn't even mentioned explicitly at all.  So, if Grant felt it was "her right" to go "pop," the logical conclusion would be that it was "her right" to divorce Chapman and remarry Gill as well.  Very sad and selfish.  But the Bible says that we reap what we sow, and Grant's harvest from her adultery will not truly be anything good.  The devil makes it look real good, of course, but only by being in the center of God's will can we ever find true, lasting happiness.  Will Grant and Gill's relationship last?  Who knows.  But I wouldn't be surprised if one day she gets dumped too.

I believe that Gary is still dear to Amy and she never has said anything bad about him. She never denied that the divorce was painful. She made the choice & thought that she was doing the unthinkable. She tried for 17 years to help Gary with his problems to no avail. She could no longer bare the pain of it. Was she selfish for her divorcing Gary? I think not. It was an act of self preservation. When a person in a relationship is consumed in doing all they can to save their loved one from self destruction with no success,it's either go down with the person and loose your self too; or get out. It can be unbearable watching a loved one destroy him or her self.


Kimberly wrote at 2012-10-13 02:44:32
Amy writes or co-writes a lot of her own lyrics and music. She has so since her early teens. Her debut album was mostly her own material and at age 17 that got her noticed. In an interview she said that she writes and sings to "round out the repertoire of life". That is why she "went Pop", as people put it. It was not for the fame or fortune.  


Jason wrote at 2012-10-14 11:41:21
Thanks for the reply, Kimberly.  The reasons that people give for what they do are often spin in order to make themselves look good--not necessarily the real reasons.  Of course, maybe that was part of the reason too ("to round out the repertoire of life"), but I find it very difficult to believe that money and fame were not also big factors.



But when you're singing Christian music, your career belongs to God.  Without God, it's doubtful Amy would have ever had a singing career at all, much less a very successful one.  (Would a regular record label have ever signed her in the late '70s?)  He raised her up, and she was singing Christian songs with a great message.  When that is the whole foundation for your career, you don't then simply get to decide, "Hey, I'll just go pop now!"  And in an interview around 1995, Amy basically said that she liked singing both kinds of music, and that she had a *right* to do so.  So, it seems rather obvious to me that Amy thought the steering wheel belonged to her at that point, not to God.  I can't really come up with any good reasons why it would have been God's will for Amy to "go pop."  Maybe if she kept singing about God on her main releases, but that wasn't the case.  Her '91 album had only one song directly about God, her '94 album about three, and her '97 album barely one (in which she never actually mentioned God explicitly).



It's the same way with divorce.  As a Christian, you don't just get to decide, "I'm very unhappy with my current mate, so I'll just get a divorce and find someone better!"  Does God allow a person to do that?  Yes.  But it goes directly against Christ's teachings.  I certainly wouldn't want to have to answer for that at the Judgment Seat of Christ.  As the Bible says, he who saves his life will lose it.

People evolve over time,their tastes change and so did her style. In addition, old wounds leave scars that continually pull and cause pain so even though Gary did eventually give up cocaine, I am sure the damage was already done.  Time does not heal all wounds.  I don't doubt that Amy and Gary both contributed to the divorce, and the fact that she does not talk about Gary in her book is likely because she is leaving the past behind her and avoiding the possibility of being misunderstood on a touchy subject.  In some things it is better to keep silent.  People had already criticized her comments in the past concerning the reasons for her divorce and I am sure she and Gary don't agree on everything so no doubt she just left the subject alone. When you are in the public eye you are always under criticism and people feel that they have the right to butt in because of it.  I am sure Amy is not looking to make herself look any worse so I am sure she is focusing on the positive aspects as some protection to her reputation.  That is easy to understand. My husband fell for someone else while our marriage was in trouble, but the difference is, I don't blame them because I know that like Amy and Vince, it was not intended and was a result of having a need for love.  I needed love too and we just couldn't give it to one another and I eventually fell for someone else too. Even though I stayed away from the one I fell for, my husband continued to spend time with my friend who he fell for.  Eventually it was clear that it was over.  Love dies sometimes.  It is natural to fall for someone who is kind to you during such a time. There is a reason why the Bible says to guard your heart, but neither of us understood it until it was too late.  That is just how it is sometimes.  Some people stay married and deny that the love is gone, remaining friends and/or living at a kind of a stand off.  My parents did.  But they just wither and are never really happy again.  I don't think that is healthy either.  It was hard for us kids to know that our parents did not feel the way they should about each other.  It is hard to watch to this day.

What are your opinions of Amy's music from 2002 on, starting with the Album:  "Legacy...Hymns & Faith"? How does the newer music fit in today spiritually? Has it helped redeem Amy from her divorce sin? Do you think she has repented and thus freed from the sin? And why does it seam that people still condemn her for the transgression? Anyhow, but not by works are we saved except by the grace of God.

Smitty wrote at 2012-10-18 21:29:04
Something else I observed long ago but forgot to mention concerned Grant’s first mainstream hit, “Find a Way.” The song’s only reference to a higher power is the line “If our God, His Son not sparing, came to rescue you, if there any circumstance that He can’t see you through?”  That’s a great line, but it’s the only line that’s so obscured by a synthesizer that you need the lyrics in front of you to understand it.



I’ve always believed that line was deliberately masked to give the song “mainstream appeal.”  Her label, Word Music, had already licensed her catalogue to mainstream A&M Records for wider release on secular stations.  Many of her fans accused her of “selling out” for the money and I’m inclined to agree with them.



That song’s success paved the way for other secular hits like “The Next Time I Fall” (with Peter Cetera) and her “Heart in Motion” album, which only contained a couple of songs (not released as singles) that made any reference to Christianity.



All this made her switch from Chapman to Gill somewhat less of a surprise to me than the earlier scandals involving Michael English and Sandi Patty.

First, Amy NEVER wrote an autobiography.  Mosiac is a collection of stories from her life; not her life story.  Second, she did mention Gary.  Third, she's never said anything bad about Gary.  Fourth, it's a private matter and while several of you can find ways to justify judging Amy and/or Gary's behavior/choices; there's no way you have a all the facts, so your 'judgements' are useless.  Let God be God, let Amy be Amy and let Gary be Gary.  I wish both of them the best.  


Not Gary either wrote at 2012-12-29 02:33:10
When people call themselves Christians we are to judge them, for we are called to judge everything within the church. God judges all those outside the church. Since Gary, Amy, Vince called themselves by the name of Christ, their behavior was critical. Think of how they could have stumbled others-- believers and non-believers.  As someone mentioned, however, we don't know all the facts, so let's just pray for all of them.


Jo wrote at 2012-12-31 19:31:48
My response here has more to do with reading the thing Amy G. Has said about her choices, than it does with the divorce itself......well...ok, logically, it is all related, cut ill try to explain what I mean.  We ALL need forgiveness, but we are also called in Scripture to exhort and admonish one another....encouraging each other to righteousness.  Clearly "judgement" in terms of one's heart, belongs only to Jesus...BUT we are commanded to be discerning and to evaluate (judge) actions in terms of whether those actions are good for God's Kingdom and Glory ....or not.  It seems perhaps more important when certain decisions are made in such public circumstances (a celebrity's life cannot by very definition, be "private".)  Whether they wish it or not, a heavier than normal responsibility comes along with the fame they accepted and cultivated.  Not that their divorce is "more wrong" than any other, but rather it has much greater destructive potential.  Anyway..back to what Amy has said:  her defense or justifications compound the wrong in my opinion and while I certainly am not her judge, I can and should judge what she is saying/ doing as it has an impact on the Family of God.  Think of it this way....when Jesus refused to stone the adulteress.....did he "judge" her act of adultery?  Yes!  Oh how we need His love and wisdom to be able to speak the truth with compassion and love!!

I really loved him, but his mother was against us and he had no good paying job. So when i met this spell caster, i told him what happened and explained the situation of things to him. At first i was undecided, skeptical and doubtful, but i just gave it a try. And in 7 days when i returned to Canada, my boyfriend (now husband) called me by himself and came to me apologizing that everything had been settled with his mom and family and he got a new job interview so we should get married. I didn’t believe it cos the spell caster only asked for my name and my boyfriends name and all i wanted him to do. Well we are happily married now and we are expecting our little kid, and my husband also got the new job and our lives became much better. His email is egogotemple@yahoo.com

Please Read me



An amazing testimony on a spell caster who brought my wife back to me.. My name is Andy Sowers, i live in Australia,and I'm happily married to a lovely and caring wife, with a kid. A very big problem occurred in my family seven months ago,between me and my wife. so terrible that she took the case to court for a divorce. she said that she never wanted to stay with me again,and that she didn't love me anymore. So she packed out of my house and made me and my child passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get her back,after much begging,but all to no avail. and she confirmed it that she has made her decision,and she never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my wife. So i explained every thing to her,so she told me that the only way i can get my wife back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for her too. So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow her advice. Then she gave me the email address of the spell caster whom she visited dr.agbudu@gmail.com



So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address she gave to me,and the spell caster assured me that i will get my wife back the next day. What an amazing statement!! I never believed, so he spoke with me,and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my wife who didn't call me for the past seven {7} months,gave me a call to inform me that she was coming back. So Amazing!! So that was how she came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and she apologized for her mistake,and for the pain she caused me and my children. Then from that day,our relationship was now stronger than how it were before by the help of a spell caster. So, i will advice you out there to kindly visit the same website dr.agbudu@gmail.com,if you are in any condition like this,or you have any problem related to "bringing your ex back. thanks to the zogo spell caster for bringing back my wife,and brought great joy to my family once again.

Thanks...

Andy Sowers

In my humble opinion - when ever a married person cultivates a close and intimate (not necessarily sexual) relationship with a person of the opposite sex, they are putting their marriage at risk.  A married person is told to "cleave/cling" to their spouse.  This cannot co-exist with a deep intimacy with someone else.  To say, "we never had a sexual relationship until after the ink was dry on the divorce papers" is irrelevant.  A wise person guards his/her heart from drifting.  That's my 2 cents.

Miss Lilian Rossy     

Hello, my name is Miss Lilian Rossy, I'm from USA. I want to inform you all that there is a spell caster that is genuine and real. I never really believed in any of these things but when I was losing Garvin, I needed help and somewhere to turn badly. I found consultant.voodoo spells and i ordered a LOVE SPELL. Several days later, my phone rang. Garvin was his old self again and wanted to come back to me! Not only come back, the spell caster opened him up to how much I loved and needed him. Spell Casting isn't brainwashing, but they opened his eyes to how much we have to share together. I recommend anyone who is in my old situation to try it. It will bring you a wonderful surprises as well as your lover back to you. The way things were meant to be." you can contact the spell caster on voodoospiritualtemple@yahoo.com he's very nice and great.

Why has this forum been taken over by spamming idiots who have nothing to do with the original question?

"Quite honestly, I think it's good that spammers have taken over.  It's been 13 years...this whole subject needs to rest and doesn't need to be spoken of by people who are out of the know."

Sam wrote at 2013-10-12 09:06:34
Throughout the years I've had much the same thoughts on this matter as both sides do.  I went back and forth...struggled with my thoughts on how it could possibly even happen.  



After their divorce I'd continued to play Amy's 1983 Christmas album as I had played it every Christmas since I was a child.  I still loved Tennessee Christmas but one day while driving somewhere I started crying while the song played.  I had this overwhelming sense of sadness about the whole thing.



In my mind Gary and Amy were always the golden couple.  We spend our lives putting people in boxes that we truly believe they belong up on pedestals.



I felt like many felt....disillusioned.  How can this be possible?



If two people with so much faith...wealth....and support from others cannot make it....then who can?



It all comes down to one thing.  We are all sinners...even the purest human being is not without sin....even Amy and Gary and you and I.



God knew that and that is why he sent his son to save us.



Jesus dying and his forgiveness isn't a get out of jail free card but he loves us and he knows humanity is fallen and a huge sacrifice was made so that all of us can have life.



There are truly evil forces at work in our world.  Only the ignorant are oblivious to that.  



There is spiritual warfare happening everywhere at all times....forces of evil we cannot see...and difficult to comprehend....forces that long to aid in the process of breaking families apart...and things even much worse than that.



Now back to Amy and Gary.



I've since focused less on whatever problems they had....who did what to whom isn't really worth more than tabloid talk.  It's between them and their families and God.  



It's time to move on from bashing either of them.



I'm at a point where I'm just thankful for the many amazing songs they've written together often along-side Michael Smith.



Songs like Straight Ahead and so many others have gotten me through some pretty rough times.  I believe Amy and Gary were meant to be.  Whatever came after they ended kind of sucks but it isn't all bad.



One thing I've learned on my journey through life is that we take nothing with us when we go....it's just our spirit and possibly our thoughts.



How we treat each other and where we are with God is all that really matters in the end.



I wish both of them the best.



These days I'm just thankful for their music....even though some of it is dated...they're still strong songs.......



.....and the message in the songs they sang and wrote together is timeless.

After 9 years in marriage with my hubby with 3 kids, my husband started going out with other ladies and showed me cold love, on several occasions he threatens to divorce me if I dare question him about his affair with other ladies, I was totally devastated and confused until a old friend of mine told me about a spell caster on the internet Dr. Trust who help people with the relationship and marriage problem by the powers of love spells, at first I doubted if such thing ever exists but decided to give it a try, when I contact him, he helped me cast a spell and within 24hours my husband came back to me and started apologizing, now he has stopped going out with ladies and he his with me for good and for real.

I would like to respectfully say that as Christians we are called to "restore such an one with a spirit of meekness." NONE of us are above the temptation to sin. We ALL struggle with it. I would like to venture to say that Christ calls us to rebuke, but yet we are to do it in the "spirit of meekness." I like Amy Grant's music. And I would like to say that those who accuse other Christians of wrongdoing, need to be willing to undergo self-examination and Holy Spirit examination themselves. I find that those who are able to forgive much are able to love much. So I would venture to say...if you cannot forgive others for their mistakes, have you yourself been forgive by God? He came to redeem ALL of us sinners.  


Bethany Jones wrote at 2013-11-13 05:37:35
All i can say is amy grants latest album is lame and is a reflection of who she chooses to be while gary's album reflects truth he has forgiven amy and has moved on  amy needs to do the same.

Oh my gosh people! Gary and Amy aren't gods! They are human and no matter who did what or why they got divorced, the fact is, they did and it's done and over with. Maybe if you feel compelled to judge them, you should instead, pray for them and that God's will be done in their lives! No one is perfect, we are all human. Please also keep in mind, even though their kids are grown now, they could easily stumble upon these forums and read the nasty, judgmental comments that people have posted about their parents.  


Willy wrote at 2013-12-06 14:54:51
It does seem ironic. Gary & Amy are both Christian & were married before God. Why do drugs always seem to be worse tham alcohol? There is no such thing as a perfect marriage, which to me would've made more sense if they set the example for themselves by putting God first in guiding them through their marriage. I therefore find it very hard to believe either would be willing to be thrown in the lions den.


jay adams wrote at 2013-12-10 22:04:37
Can't take sides on this because none of us were there, but God hates divorce but his Grace is greater than ALL our sin.  Wish they were still together, both putting out Christian CDs and a family unit, but not so any more.



I did like the last 2 Amy Grant Hymns CDs.  Hope that Gary is still putting out Christian music and we are blessed for the good music they have made over the years, especially the non-secular songs.

If Amy Grant and Gary Chapman's music had not touched us so deeply we would not care about their divorce. But like me, most of you have been deeply blessed by their music. Atleast Amy's early music. And yes, i agree, the move to pop with secular appeal was a bad move. I will never forget the early easter morning my radio alarm went of to El Shaddai. Amy's voice just beautiful. When ever a ministry is successful and drawls people to the Lord Sattan is going do his best to find a crack in the armour and cause havock. The Christian music today is good but the truths in the lyrics don't always seem to be as powerful. I will continue to listen to Amy's old music, recognizing Gary's talented writting abilities and be thankful to Jesus Christ that he raised up such a powerful duo. God bless you Gary Chapman. You built up and added to the body of Christ with your God given talent. God bless you Amy for allowing God to use your beautiful voice. You both blessed a generation of Christians for God's glory.

This is the story of my life that i am still pondering upon even as i write this article, if to tell the world.I have been asking myself if i should let the world know about this or maybe i should just keep it to myself cos most people might think am crazy.All the same am telling my story.I live in Bordeaux, France with my husband and four kids and we have a happy family.It wasn't always just like that.Before my husband, i have been married to five different men.Yeah five, all five marriages failed after six months not cos we had problems or the relationships was on the rock they just come and go without good reason.It was the worst time of my live.I had a feeling there was something about me that wasn't just appealing in the site of all the men that claimed to love to death.The entire puzzle of my life just seem to fall into place when i met my present husband i fall hard in love with him like he also did.It was all in his eye that he loved me with all he's got.Yeah we got married but just after the first six  months as always he just wanted out as every other man that i was married to.I never really wanted to let go of any of my ex husband i was willing to fight for it marriage but they bluntly weren't ready for that.But this, i just got tired of same old same old thing just wanted a steady marriage with the love of my life.I tried marriage counseling with him which is suppose to me the best way to resolving marital problem  but he was like its been tattooed in his mind that he wanted out of our marriage.I Honestly don't know how and when i contacted a spell caster to help me.His name was Mutton i think he was of great help cos i honest remember that i think he helped me save my marriage.I say i think cos its being one year and six months exactly since he cast a spell to make my husband stay till dead do us part and my husband is still with me now and we are happy and in love just like how we were for the first six months.I will be fully convinced if we get to celebrity our 50th year anniversary.I don't want any body to see this article like it was meant to make you contact him.I am just sharing my experience on how Mutton helped me restore my marriage with spell casting and i should tell you he does not charge for his services all you are to do is to provide materials he will be needing for the spell casting.If you feel he can help you solve any of your problem contact him here godsofosunx@rocketmail.com this was what i used to contact him good luck.

Just for the record, Gary, Amy's cheating on you with Gill warped the perception most born-again Chrisitians like myself had towards her and we no longer considered her a true blue.  It alienated me and made me realize she does t want in the light anymore but embraces the way of the world.  I mean, it's for none of us to judge another's heart but when you're a huge star and you cheat on your husband it's pretty obvious what you are not.

I've been watching and reading about Amy Grant tonight on the internet.  Like many of you I was a fan and grew up listening to Amy Grant.  I have been to one concert back in the late 80s.  Like you I was saddened when I heard about Amy and Gary's divorce along with her quick remarriage.

I was impressed with listening to Amy talk about her life and faith and feel encouraged that she is hiding on to her faith and continuing in using her music gifting.

I've been a Christian for 35 years I am married with 2 children and have 2 old step-children from my wife's previous marriage.  I've been married now for 12 years.  We both fell in-love and married within 6 months.  I felt that God directed me to marry.  We are both Christians.  For the 1st 10 years, our married was very difficult.  Many times we both felt it was too hard and the only thing holding us together was our promises and the Lord.  We tried many counsellors but they failed as it was often just trying to get the counsellor to agree with me over my wife and vice versa.  It was only when I got prayer from a Pastor that my hope was renewed.  Now we have a wonderful marriage.



When marriage is difficult it is easy to fall into the arms of another.  That's why people talk about 'divorce-proofing' your marriage by building it up.



God forgives our sin but we often live with the consequences of our actions.

Amy and Gary have made mistakes.  You could say Amy was the instigator of the divorce in that she allowed her heart to be romantically involved with another.  God forgives all that.



I think God is the God of the second chance and the third, etc, etc.  Now Amy is married again and she is honouring that.  She has mentioned many times her past regrets.  I think it is very gracious of her to open up about her past.



We all get hurt in life.  God uses our pain for good in our lives, if we will let him.  Often to get our attention.



I think people need to be more gracious and less judgmental, as Jesus was, and there are plenty of warnings for those who are judgmental.

I think Amy & Gary should call the spellcaster and see if they can help.  This whole post is idiotic and makes me realize why so many people hate the church and the people in it.   God is a God of forgiveness.  Get over it an move on.

happened to my family, I lost my job and my wife packed out of my house because I was unable to take care of her and the kids at the time. I manage all through for four years until I cannot cope with the situation again,so I searched on the internet for any help about getting back my family and job. I came across so many testimonies which make me confuse to my frustration,I decided to choose Therapist Oniha of winexbackspell@gmail.com who attended to me and instructed me on things to do,which I did with faith and within 3 days, my office called and gave me back my work on that same day my wife came back home with the kids and apologized for her actions and now we are happily living together again,i am so happy shearing the goodness of Therapist Oniha of

the winexbackspell@gmail.com once again.  Tell Therapist Oniha i am grateful.

My name is really not important here cos all i can say is that if you need a spell caster to help you with your problem then the best one is MUTTON OSUN. He is the only reliable spell caster i know.This is not just cos he helped me i mean if you are reading this comment on the internet, you  will definitely see other comment about how he has saved relationship with his spell,helped people win lottery and i read one a man named Sandburg don't know if its his real name said  MUTTON OSUN help with a spell to secure a job and bring back wife who left him.I am composing this comment to pin the fact that MUTTON OSUN has also helped me.After six years of marriage it hard to really understand when your wife is see another man and asking for a divorce just so see can be with him.It so hard for me cos i thought we were doing fine.Maybe i was too blind that i didn't know something was wrong with us or i wasn't giving her the attention she needed.Which ever which way there was something that i knew,she was breaking my heart and i still loved her with my life.I know people may probably say it unlike a man but i lost my virginity to her and sine then there have been no other in my life but her.I gave up everything for her My family, and everything and everyone that wanted us not to be.I could not imagine how she could be so heartless and so unfaithful i mean i gave her my life!.I was ready to let her go i left our house and her new painter boyfriend moved in.They turned my private store room to his art studio and started sharing my bed with my wife.He was practically living my life for me cos everything i had in our house was converted to his.With every day that passed grew mad at the painter cos i was still in love with my wife she is the only family i have left and in my head i thought i just lost her to another man after all the sacrifice i have made to see us together.Before i even thought of spell casting i tried the memory lane method but she was not even willing to talk to me for more than a minute or even have a bit with me it was almost like she was allergic to me after five years of marriage.The thought of another man making love to my wife consumed me i lost focus and was totally confused on what to do.I remember drowning myself with bottles of vodka to kill the pain and try to forget her but i pass out and wake up thinking about her.Just when i thought i needed to get rid of of my cheating wife with the help on the internet, i came across a lot of comment on how MTTON OSUN has helped to get exes back so at that moment i was no longer thinking of how to get rid of her instead i was thinking and willing to do anything just to have my wife back.When i contacted the spell caster that is MUTTON OSUN with the email i saw on the comment he called me, after i made him understand my problem.He told me he was sad for me cos i left my whole world and family for her.He asked that i get some materials i can disclose but it nothing to worry about cos they are totally harmless.I felt it was gonna be hard to send them down to him so i gave him the money for the materials.After two days he sent me a package containing my spell.He instructed me on how to make it effective and i swear on my dead sister grave the spell made my wife mine again,Its was so supernatural how it happened i can't just explain from how she left the painter and everything beats my imagination all i know is that MUTTON OSUN spell is was powerful enough to get me my wife back.Contact him here on his email address for solution to your own problem :godsofosunx@rocketmail.com

Well, regardless of who is at fault, Gary is probably better off as Amy has now gone over to The Dark Side and is now tolerant of homosexual abominations ( God's Words, not mine), her sin here being disguised and rationalized under the faux umbrella of "love".

I actually ended up on this page looking back at the old shows of Tnn. I cannot believe what I read. So easy to cast stones. Gary had a drug problem, so what, he gave it up and admitted defeat to the drug and has since had a successful career. Congrats Gary. As for his marriage to Amy. These people are human but in the spotlight. They loved each other once, it did not work out and they both moved on and still kept a great relationship for the kids. I believe that falls for over 90% of people. You fall in love get your heart ripped out and you learn to never love like you did on your first couple of ones. My lord, Gary and Amy are human, imagine that. I am mad at myself for even allowing myself to post here, because who cares, its between Gary and Amy. Let them work it out, like you all don't have your own problems.

I actually saw Amy in concert years ago.   Now I wouldn't cross the street to hear her.  Until she apologizes to Gary and Vince's ex wife I will never listen to her again.  She was wrong.  They were still married when Amy Started coming on to Vince while they were filming a Christmas show.  Funny how she still was having adulterous thoughts while filming a show celebrating Christ.  Plus she may have had trouble in her marriage but she had no right to go after a married man.  She needs to apologize to the children too.  She may never know how much damage she caused.  How many new Christians may have been affected by her lies and hypocrisy. I pray that no one does to her children what she did to someone else's children having them grow up without a dad. Whenever she is on the radio I change the channel. The few times I have seen her she looks miserable.  Cause getting her stolen man didn't make her world as great as she thought it would.


Tony wrote at 2014-07-15 17:36:08
Shea, could you please elaborate about Amy now being "tolerant of homosexual abominations"?  I know she gave an interview to a homosexual publication for the very first time last year, and when pressed about her views on homosexual "marriage," she wouldn't give an answer, which was very cowardly.



What a lot of people posting here are failing to see is that staying in an adulterous marriage is *continued* sin.  Yes, God forgives, but he also says to "sin no more."  The Early Church knew a lot more about what the Scriptures really teach than the weak modern Church.  So, did the Early Church allow divorce/remarriage?  Nope.  If you divorced and then remarried, you were asked to dissolve the new "marriage."  If you refused, you were excommunicated from the Church--simple as that.  It's sad that both Amy *and* Gary are living in continual adultery.  I feel bad for their kids, who have terrible role models in their parents, and pray that they don't fall into the same sins in adulthood.  Of course, it would be good to pray for their whole family, but if one doesn't feel like praying for Amy or Gary, let's at least pray for the kids.  


Tony wrote at 2014-07-15 17:49:27
Oh, one more comment.  Studies have shown that of people who divorce and remarry, only about 20% of them end up happier 5 years down the road.  OTOH, many married couples who are unhappy don't *stay* that way but rather eventually work out their problems and achieve a reasonably happy marriage.  Also, the "high" from getting married usually lasts at most two years--after that, a person's happiness level tends to go back to what it was before.  So, even if you don't believe God's Word about marriage, there's plenty of good research to show that divorce/remarriage is a bad bet statistically speaking.  In fact, you usually end up creating more problems than you solve.  Of course, God doesn't expect a person to live with a spouse who is physically abusive or otherwise dangerous--in that case, separation is allowed (but not remarriage).  Even the Early Church allowed for separation.

I believe that Amy was messing around with Vince when she was married to Gary. Amy and Vince were together all the time. He couldn't go golfing unless she was there. No wonder he got a divorce from his wife. She was messing around on Gary.

The bible, Jesus state very clearly that those who demand a divorce have a hardness of heart toward their spouse- otherwise a separation for the purpose of  reconciliation would be their goal.how is that for keeping it simple?   Finally, "what God has joined together , let no man separate??? Does this make sense?? Sure it does- The same way "Vengeance is mine sayeth the Lord,I will repay"  does They are both God,s commandments


Mark wrote at 2014-11-20 01:15:55
Matthew 5:31-32



“It was also said, ‘Whoever divorces his wife, let him give her a certificate of divorce.’ But I say to you that everyone who divorces his wife, except on the ground of sexual immorality, makes her commit adultery, and whoever marries a divorced woman commits adultery.



Every married couple has problems. Marriage is a covenant for life. Breaking the covenant is lieing to God. These days, people treat marriagee like dating. People do not respect God and His covenants. Marriage is for life. 2 become one. Anyone who says, "get over it" or " move on" has no understanding of the spiritual ties and bonding of marriage. No matter what you do, the divorce haunts for the rest of your life, because it is a spiritual violation. Amy  forever lives with the deep knowledge that she is living in adultery and Gary lives forever knowing that part of him is always missing, no matter how much he moves on.  



There are faithful men and there are faithful women. There are unfaithful men and unfaithful women.  T0 be a follower of God, Jesus must be boss (Lord) of your life. Doing what feels good and feels right is a highway to Hell.  


Tyler wrote at 2014-12-03 04:57:35
Good points, Mark.  I just wanted to respond to a couple of things you brought up.



The Bible translation from which you quoted mentions "sexual immorality," which is not a very accurate translation.  Other translations use "whoredom" and "fornication."  In terms of how to interpret this, the Early Church did not allow divorce for "sexual immorality."  As you said, marriage is a covenant for life, and the Early Church enforced that.  In fact, to my knowledge, they only allowed remarriage if the previous spouse had died--that's it.  



You wrote:



"Amy forever lives with the deep knowledge that she is living in adultery and Gary lives forever knowing that part of him is always missing, no matter how much he moves on."



That's true, but Gary is living in adultery too, and has been ever since he started his second "marriage."  Of course, if you repress the truth long enough, God can turn you over to a reprobate mind.  So, whether either of them is still consciously aware of the truth at this point is anybody's guess.  I suspect that from time to time the truth does come up to bite them, but then they just push it back down.  What a terrible way to live, and a terrible example for their kids and any people who still follow their music.  Just goes to show that it's better to be an "unknown" to the world and have only a modest income but try every day to live a godly life with the Holy Spirit's help and power, than it is to be famous and wealthy like these two yet wallow in immorality and self-deception.  I wouldn't want to be either one of them when they have to stand before Christ and give an account of their lives.

It is NEVER right or condoned by God for people, the church or any other entity to sit in judgement of

Another persons choices. It is the need to feel correct in our ways that leads us to discuss other peoples marriages, divorces

And personal issues. Although I hurt for any person who suffers the pain of loss in a divorce, it was never the churches 'right' to shun or shame

Amy Grant because she divorced and remarried. I applaud the fact the she ignored the shaming and proceeded on with her life.

Although this post comes many years after the divorce, I am quite surprised by the people who posted here

About this divorce and would encourage them to look deeply into their own lives and a little bit less over the back fence and into the backyard

Of their neighbors lives.

Great Baba is a trust worthy spell caster and he will be of great help to you. I never believed in spell casting but After 5 years of marriage my husband left me because I lost my womb, and i was unable to give birth to children. I felt like my life has come to an end, and i almost committed suicide, i was emotionally down for a very long time, but thanks to this spell caster called Great Baba whom i met online after my friend Paul Tricia told me how he also helped her to bring back her husband in less than 2 days. I believed her and decided to give Great Baba a try and i contacted him on his email  Highersolutiontemple@yahoo.com  and explained my problems to him. He laughed and told me that In less than 2 days, my Husband will come back for me again, and that he will restore my womb and i will give birth to children. At first i thought it was a lie but i took courage and believed as Great Baba has said and it did happen just as this Great spell caster said, My husband called me and was crying, apologizing for forgiveness. I forgave him and today i am so glad that all worries and problems has gone away, and we are even happier than before, another good news is that i am pregnant now, and very soon we are expecting our baby. Great Baba is really a gifted and a powerful spiritual man and i will not stop publishing him because he is a wonderful man. I advice you all If you have a problem and you are looking for a real and genuine spell caster to solve all your problems just Contact Great Baba on his email on Highersolutiontemple@yahoo.com  at anytime and just visit  GREATBABAOFSOLUTION.blogspot.com   and see so many people testifying about his good and wonderful work. Just contact him and he will help you solve all your problems. Once again thank you Great Baba Thank you, thank you.

The Cornbread Atheist wrote at 2015-04-22 08:27:26
Wow. Everybody here sounds absolutely crazy. The reason I became an atheist is right here. You people are so judgmental it's almost funny.



Here's the bottom line.



On one hand, the Bible is pretty clear about divorce. This is an adulterous marriage.  You people defend it and say she is forgiven. I thought it was "go and sin no more."  You don't get forgiven for murder, kill somebody else and then say "no, it's cool I asked forgiveness."



I noticed that all the people that hurt me the most were very big in their faith.  It's like they run up a balance in their do gooder Christian spiritual account, and when they screw up, they withdraw from their Jesus account to cover it.  



That's when I looked outside the Bible to see the big picture.  Jesus isn't real.  There's no proof of him outside the bible, just like there is no proof of Exodus, Moses, David...maybe.  The gospels weren't written by Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.  There are a lot of mistranslations.  The original Aramaic Bible doesn't have Revelation.



There is even an old scroll that leaves out the "cast the first stone" thing we've all been taught.  All the Scripture used to justify snake handling and poison drinking is forged.



You guys have all been brainwashed while you were young and now you have compartmentalized it.  That's why my doctor can be a great GP and believe in a carpenter who is coming back on a winged horse with a sword in his teeth.  



There are one billion Hindus and one of their gods has an elephant head and is named Ganesh.  Do you know why you think it's crazy?  Because you weren't brainwashed about Ganesh at Vacation Bible School. You heard about it as an adult and without the brainwashing it sounds crazy, right.  See........



Stop judging people, stop telling people they are going to hell....and stop enjoying it so much when you say it.  Most of the great atheist apologists are people that wanted to know the Bible better, and when they did, they didn't believe it any more.



I've never seen a doctor say "well, I was interested in medicine, but after I got to med school, I didn't believe it any more."



When you change your mind, c'mon up and say "that was kinda goofy wasn't it?"  We'll laugh, remind you we were the same way, hand you a beer and that will be that.  No baby eating....we save that for Lent.;)



Be good for goodness sake.  Hail Santa!

I'm just going to be upfront. Gary was an ***hole and got what he deserved. He was abusive to Amy, abusive to the kids, and he was a druggie. Oh yes, folks, he was seriously good husband material wasn't he?



I'm not really one to judge, because like Gary I was an ***hole myself in my first marriage. I only have myself to blame. I don't pound my ex-wife with a Bible and judge her for having enough and leaving me. I just take it as a lesson learned and try to live up to my God-given calling with the wife I have now.



It says in the good book, "Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ loved the church, and gave Himself for it..." Did Gary do that? Like myself, he cared more for his drugs and his booze than he did about his marriage.  


Jason wrote at 2015-04-27 23:44:09
You make some good points, the_doves.  It sounds like Gary was no prize.  However, exactly where in the Bible does it say that remarriage is OK if you marry a jerk?  It doesn't.



If Amy wanted to separate from Gary and remain celibate, fine.  But marrying somebody else is adultery--continued adultery.  As long as she stays "married" to Vince, she's committing adultery.



And what about her kids?  Did they want her to dump Gary?  I doubt it.  How much pain and suffering did she cause them?  Wounds from divorce often linger for decades.  It's ironic that Amy considers herself a "mercy" person, when she showed no mercy at all to her family--or to Vince's wife.  



And is Amy really happier now?  I doubt it.  The grass always seems greener on the other side.  Adultery is a lot like fast food for the soul--it may taste great in the short term, but ultimately has dire consequences in the long term.  


Bruce wrote at 2015-05-06 09:24:04
Here are a couple of things to think about.  In what exact ways was Gary abusive to Amy and/or the kids?  What kinds of things would he say to them, and how often?  Did he ever hit them?  



Also, if Gary was so abusive, then why did Amy stay with him for about 17 years?  And why did she decide to have 3 kids with him to boot, her last child coming after over 10 years of marriage?  Furthermore, why did she only leave when she had someone "better" lined up?



It sounds to me that while Amy didn't have a "great" marriage, it wasn't as bad as she has made it out to be.  If it was so unbearable, I think she would've left much earlier and decided not to have any kids with him.  It seems to me that she was just bored and unhappy, and was looking for something fresh and exciting.  Of course, I would imagine that she's also somewhat bored with Vince by now, and him with her too.  I wouldn't be surprised if they eventually split as well.  After all, what goes around comes around.

Congrats to The Cornbread atheist for having the most ignorant comment. Guess what! Every major historian worth his salt believes that Jesus was a real person. Of course now it comes down to is Jesus who He says He is or not. IE: The Son of God. Hint - He Is!



As for the Amy and Gary scenario. There apparently are two different stories going on. One is that he was a major drug addict and that she tried to help him and put up with him for as long as she could. Couldn't take it anymore and left him. The other is that she was having at first an emotional affair at the least. Whether it became physical before their divorce is up for debate. I find it all very sad whether either of them or true. Regardless, divorce is nasty business and we as Christians will be held to a higher standard on That Day. Something to think about.  


Bruce wrote at 2015-05-26 17:54:28
Slightly Amused,



Hi.  I think the truth is somewhere in the middle of the two stories.  Yes, Gary admitted using drugs, but he supposedly stopped around 1986 or so.  However, I heard he was busted for marijuana possession around 2000.  It's also possible he abused alcohol as well.  Of course, even if he did quit, that doesn't mean he wasn't a "dry addict."  



It seems to me that Gary's behavior wore away at their marriage and made Amy want someone else.  However, since Amy didn't leave until she had Vince lined up, I don't think her marriage was as "unbearable" as she has made it seem.  If she had left many years earlier, with nobody else lined up, then it would be more believable that she just "couldn't take it anymore."  



I suspect that part of Amy actually misses Gary.  After all, marriage (even a bad one) involves a soul tie, something that only God can dissolve.  Did she really think she could get away from Gary by still living in the same town and having had 3 kids with him???  Maybe if she'd never had kids with him and moved 2000 miles away or something, then it might have worked.  But anyway, she was trying to run from Gary and her past, and I don't think she'll ever be truly successful in that.  After all, in her song "Eye to Eye," which came out several years after the divorce, she was still talking about trying to leave a "troubled past" behind.  



Anyway, you're right that divorce is nasty business.  I sure wouldn't want to be Amy (or Gary) on Judgment Day.  How terrible it would be to hear Him say something like, "You lived in continual adultery while still singing Christian music and made a mockery of My Name for money's sake.  Who did you think you were fooling?  You were serving Mammon, not me."



No doubt Amy and Gary will both be in heaven, but I suspect that they will fall under the category of "the first shall be last."  And let's not forget what Jesus said about the wealthy either.

My boyfriend had this girl that has been ruining his relationships for years, he broke up with her three years ago, but she still controls him and destroys most of his relationships. I was now a victim. She came again to take him away from me, she tried all she could, but I kept my faith strong and stayed with my boyfriend without allowing her more into him. She also confronted me, told me that there is nothing I will do to make her leave him alone; she warned seriously that I am endangering my life and she will soon act stronger than ever. I was afraid and started having doubt in my strength because my boyfriend has already started seeing her; all hope was almost lost, I don’t know how this evil lady controls him since the day there had a dramatic break up. I decided to help save the man I love even if we will not be together again. I went to friends for advice and visited blogs too. I found testimonies about Dr. Owolabi Love Spell and others, but my spirit chose him. I took courage and emailed him and my life changed since then. The evil lady’s power over my boyfriend was destroyed and she doesn’t have any spiritual connecting again with him. My boyfriend has changed; he is feeling so relieved and healthy now than before. He also emailed to thank Dr. Owolabi for the love spell and encouraged me to also share our own testimony on blogs. We are grateful for what you have done. Email him and receive your own miracle through owolabispellcasters@gmail.com

I know both Amy Grant, Gary Chapman, Vince Gill and Elvis Presley and I can tell you that Crispen Glover told me to my face, that the real reason they divorced was because of aliens. Thats right all the songs recorded were given to them by plutorian aliens and there was a falling out I am afraid. The marriage couldn't last without the songs and alien inspirations, so Amy had to marry Vince Gill and Gary Chapman had to have an interview show and do a special golf album. Since that time the Aliens have given their music to Billy and Miley Cyrus. Achey Breaky Heart and Baby Baby were written by the same plutorian. Some say Miley is the daughter of Billy and that same Plutorian as evidenced by her lankiness and head size.

Back in 1993 my wife left me too, we were in ministry.

Amy was key in my conversion, her music grabbed me.

In 93 I noticed Amys clothing tastes and video style changed,

it seemed very secular,

her lyrics lost the anointing. I discerned she had gone bafly astry!

Felt betrayed by this, then I put two and two together.



Poor Gary got screwed by an adulterer, simple as that!

She needs to repent publicly before her heart stops beating,

she is in an adulterous affair right now, not married with the cowboy!

Andrew, you make some good points.  But Gary is also living in adultery.  In fact, apparently he and Cassie were even living together before they got "married."  



So, while Amy was the one who decided to break up their family, that doesn't make Gary any less guilty of adultery.  In God's eyes, Amy isn't married to Vince, nor is Gary to Cassie.

Wondering why Northwestern College radio would present Amy Grant in concert when they know full well her background. Sad.

GREETINGS...........to everyone in here , I am ANNABEL STEVEN  i live in UK and i got married to KEVIN STEVEN , i want to share a great testimony on how DR.IMONAH the great love spell caster brought back my Husband to me with in 48 hours . I was married with KEVIN STEVEN for six years, after six years of marriage ,he broke up with me because of his mistress , I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything i have, I made promises but he refused. So one day A  female friend of mine came home for a visit  I told her my problem then she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that don’t believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it , then I meant a spell caster called DR IMONAH online when i was doing some research i got his contact i called him then he gave me his email address that i should write to his private email address at (drimonahspiritualtemple@outlook.com )  , explained my problems to him when writing to him on the email he gave to me , and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before 48 hours , that my husband will return to me when i contacted DR.IMONAH i never taught that this would have been possible but to my greatest surprise after 48 hours of me contacting DR.IMONAH my husband called me , I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he is ready to make up for lost time and he wants me to forgive him and accept him back as his wife again ,that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then While until this moment my eyes are full of surprise because i never thought that he will come back to me again. At this moment i have nothing to say than to thank DR.IMONAH for his great powers and for making use of it to help those in need so since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem or any family problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all other spell casters. contact him now via email:(drimonahspiritualtemple@outlook.com) or call/whatsApp him with this number (+2348141690678) . If you have any problems he can help you just contact him and explain your problems to him and he will solve it for you , he is very powerful

We need to make sure we do not let the Pharisees down in our judgment of this situation. All have sinned and none can save themselves.
