Novel ideas vs. the laws of God

Your weekly dose of Spurgeon
The PyroManiacs devote some space each weekend to highlights from the lifetime of works from the Prince of Preachers, Charles Haddon Spurgeon.  The following excerpt is from The Gospel of the Kingdom, page 29, Pilgrim Publications.
"Our Lord would never have tolerated the wicked laws of certain of the American States, which allow married men and women to separate on the merest pretext." 

A woman divorced for any cause but adultery, and marrying again, is committing adultery before God, whatever the laws of man may call it. This is very plain and positive; and thus a sanctity is given to marriage which human legislation ought not to violate.

Let us not be among those who take up novel ideas of wedlock, and seek to deform the marriage laws under the pretence of reforming them. Our Lord knows better than our modern social reformers.

We had better let the laws of God alone, for we shall never discover any better.
