No, they make it easier for lazy minds to READ the Bible.
Very very impotant benchmarks and key words have been changed purpously in the “new” versions.
Don’t get mad at me for loving my fellow Christians...I give fair warning.

Well now, Jeremiah 3:8 And I saw, when for all the causes whereby backsliding Israel committed adultery I had put her away, and given her a bill of divorce; yet her treacherous sister Judah feared not, but went and played the harlot also.

So since God is a divorcee, and He did tell us why He divorced Israel, the question would then need be what does it mean to be a jerk?

God Himself is divorced.

Not anymore, He's not.

Note that Israel worshiped other idols ( which in God's eyes, is adultery). Jesus repeated the same thing when He actually said this in Matthew 5:32 :

"But I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for marital unfaithfulness, causes her to become an adulteress, and anyone who marries the divorced woman commits adultery."

Your spouse could be a jerk without being unfaithful. I'm not sure if the Bible teaches that divorce is allowable because your spouse is a jerk.

Suit yourself, but the wedding hasn’t taken place, yet.
Unless you were at one the Bible didn’t tell me about.

Isaiah 53 is the Cross. Who is the Barren Woman in Isaiah 54?

Dost thou forget the Law?
Even divorced, the wife remains married, but I care not to argue with fellow Christians, we will have an eternity to discuss these things, and I do not feel like teaching ordinances today.
I am just glad the two of us will always have time for discussion, for there shall be time no longer.
We will say today that you are right.
