The Other Woman

Luke 16:18 18 "Everyone who divorces his wife and marries another commits adultery, and he who marries a woman divorced from her husband commits adultery.

Notice that this verse seems to be in the middle of nowhere...
all the whole passage is talking about money .. or rather Mammon (what I possess)

Spiritual adultery therefore is being united to the other woman... her name is Mammon, she is Babylon, Folly, Wickedness - the scarlet woman

The only reason anyone serves other gods is for Mammon's sake
Even the gods and Satan serve her...

Therefore the choice in this age is very simple... God or Mammon, Wisdom or Folly
there is no other woman

Are you sure about that? The passage is clearly defining adultery in the context of marriage and divorce. How do you figure money is involved?

Of course, the elephant in the room is this: why would the words of an almighty, omniscient God be so cryptic in the Bible? That is, how far can we validate torturing of meaning of "old-fashioned" passages in the Bible such that they align with our more modern morality?

Of course, the biggest question of all is this: if you are interpreting the Bible in a different way than what is clearly written, is that not running contrary to the word of God? What right do you have to do that? No offense, Yemsee, but I'm more inclined to trust the words of God rather than someone else's interpretation.
