Divorce & Denominational Divergence...

What does divorce and denominational divergence have in common?

Divorce is considered sin unless there is infidelity involved according to Matthew 19. But then forgiveness can be a solution to infidelity if you have it in you to forgive the transgression. Denominational divergence is sin and like any sin except for the blaspheming of the Holy Spirit can be forgiven. However in order for forgiveness to take place one must first repent from the sin in order for forgiveness to work its perfect work..

Lets define these words as defined on Dictionary.com;
