Some times people have very difficult questions and seek answers from "authorities" in the field. That would ordinarily be fine, however in this instance I DEFINITELY disagree with this "Authority".
When you are offering advice you should "PREFACE" it by saying this is YOUR OPINION. What Pat Robertson said in answer to this Alzheimer question was Pat Robertson's OPINION. No where IN MY bible does it say that Alzheimer is a form of death and therefore it is OK to divorce someone with it. Wedding vows state "Till DEATH do us part". Now do not get me wrong I am NOT debating the fact of whether or not the person should get a divorce. That is between them and God. Many people, some of them are Christians get divorce. I am divorced, it happens and that is not my issue. My issue is that a supposed "Spiritual Authority" who is telling people that a person with Alzheimer's is "GONE" and Alzheimer's is like a type of "DEATH" therefore the person should divorce and start all over! NO WHERE does the bible say that if your spouse has Alzheimer's they are like dead already so if you need companionship divorce them and start all over!!
As a "Spiritual Authority" if what you are saying cannot be backed up by scripture, than PLEASE PREFACE IT AS YOUR OPINION!
