Pure Flix Founder David AR White Announces Divorce from Wife

David A.R. White and Andrea Logan announced on Saturday that the couple was divorcing, after revealing that marriage ended years ago, but that it was only being formalized now.

White, known as the founder of the Christian movie studio Pure Flix that has released such fare as God’s not Dead, The Case for Christ and Unplanned, as well being an actor in many of the films he produces, informed the world on Instagram that the decision to rend the marriage asunder came after “a great deal of prayer and counseling over many years.”

Logan released her own statement, writing:

“We made the most difficult decision to end our marriage years ago — a decision that came after a great deal of prayer and counseling over many years. Divorce is an unbearable grief and is being reminded of the death of a family dream every single day.

We have waited quite a while to share this news with the public, as we wanted to give our family the time and space to heal and process all that unfolded during such a difficult time.

We would appreciate your encouragement and prayer and would request privacy in this matter. Our priority is to continue to seek the Lord’s guidance for our family, as we lovingly co-parent our three amazing children. We value your prayers for our family and grateful for your understanding.

While the future is unknown, I have faith in God , and we stand on this:
Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you says the Lord, plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you a future and hope.”

The couple has three young kids together.

Ironically, one of his most recent projects is the producer of Redeeming Love, the big-screen adaptation of the bestselling Francine Rivers novel due out next year.

Redeeming love is a fictional portrayal of the story between a farmer, Michael Hosea, who marries a prostitute. Though she repeatedly cheats on him and runs out on him, back to a life of whoring and selling herself with the result of unimaginable anguish and pain, Michael continually takes her back, woos her, and loves her. He refuses to divorce her, and they ultimately remain together and build a joyful marriage despite years of pain and infidelity.

The story is a metaphor for the Book of Hosea, with Hosea marrying the prostitute Gomer to represent the Lord and unfaithful Isreal, and yet the Lod continually calling her back.

  1. Should we keep calling them Christians? They say they are seeking the Lord’s will, but the Lord’s will is do not separate what God has joined together.

    1. Should we continue to call you a Christian? Jesus said, “judge not lest you also be judged” and “let he who is without sin cast the first stone”.

    2. I believe we continue to pray for ALL Christians and not cast judgement on any human. God is a faithful God and His will is all we need to seek. I am sure God did not say take biblical scriptures out of context to fit your personal judgment upon another. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. Matthew 7:2 (quoted IN context with its true meaning. Both David White and his wife in the past have brought wonderful uplifting and biblical truth for all to see and explore so we can explore our own lives. I pray God uses this for the good of all.

  2. We all have to give an account of what and why we do what we do. GOD judges righteously and looks at our hearts. Sorry that divorce is their choice and that it’s just one more thing that satan can use to discredit the Church. This is one reason I don’t call myself CHRISTIAN. I’m called to be a saint, according to the word of GOD. I am a child of GOD through JESUS CHRIST. Christianity has just a negative representation these days and things like this just adds coals to the fire. I pray that both David & Andrea can be truly led by the Holy Spirit Who is the BEST Conselor. I pray they can forgive & love again. WARNING: GOD told Israel, when they get into the promised land, NOT to do what the heathen in the land did. They didn’t listen and the results were tragic. Divorce is a tragedy especially when your life is high profile and fame & fortune are your goal. I pray for David, Andrea, their families & all the people that shared CHRIST with.

  3. I have been involved in counseling couples and I have learned that the couples that are destined to fail are those that fake and pretend. They say “false loving things” to each other and pretend in front of others for the sake of appearances instead of being truthful and real with each other. Don’t you think your spouse can ultimately tell when you are lying? Which camp do you think you are operating in when you lie and do not tell the truth? No you don’t have to air your dirty laundry but don’t fake and lie and deceive either or others. These fakers and pretenders falsely believe they are being polite and kind when in fact they are out and out liars. They think they are just pretending for the sake of appearances (and they even think God needs you to do this) but in fact you are doing it for the sake of your own pride. Remember pride goes before a fall? They also are not exercising faith in God’s ways but in Satan’s lying. Some of these people believe their false acts are going to make God look good and also falsely believe they are doing it for God (the wife in the story stated this in another article and stated that their marriage was sacrificed for God).

    God doesn’t need you faking it or lying to people to make him look good. In fact it is not his character that is in question, it is yours. Do you really believe God? Then do it his way and not some mocked up, cocked up baloney your flesh generated. The reason these couples get into these messes is because they are not honest with each other and that spills over into so many things. The fake love creates bitterness because your spouse knows you are lying when you say false things. Stop the false and fake words and build a relationship based on truth one step at a time (instead of thinking your leaping up by faking it). Deal with the issues one at a time, the way God says to do it and don’t give up. Have faith in God, not in yourself or your spouse. When you fake it you are not having faith in God and you are teaching your spouse to have faith in you and that will soon fail when your lying is exposed.

    Love your wife, love your neighbor, love your enemies. Don’t tell me you are serving God and not operating in love, it is impossible. Anytime you lie to someone you are not loving them. Hold yourself accountable to that love. Be real, be accountable, be able to admit your own faults. Celebrate your differences and that God made you different. Don’t let the devil get you upset over how different you are from each other. God made you that way.

    I once saw two pastors who acted like they loved each other in front of others but were not getting along in private. In church they would fake and act like they really loved each other and hug each other. What do you think happened? They broke up the church and damaged a lot of people in the process. They should have sat down and been accountable to the people of the church and admitted their needs and issues. Instead their helping the relationship in a false way destroyed it.

    I once counseled a couple who spent their time on Facebook telling each other how much they loved each other every single day. This couple did not last 4 years and they fell apart in anger and bitterness. Your spouse does not need you to make them look good in front of others, they need you to truly love them in private and in public. Don’t be fake, flatter is not love, it is sin (look up flattery in the NT, Paul said he never ever did it). If they really loved each other they did not need to get on Facebook and appease their flesh in front of others. This is lying, stop it.

    I once knew another couple that got on Facebook with photos of the other person saying how much they loved them because they were the greatest all the time (sexy body and
    employment accomplishments). What happens when this person is not so great or fails at something? Do you still love them or do you only love them when they are perfect and do what you want them to do? Their relationship was not based on love, it was false idol worship and when the person does not do what your idol wants you will toss it out. This marriage did not last 3 years. One ended up thinking they were too good for the other one. Why? You set up an idol and worshiped it and that idol (money, accomplishments, looks) was more important than the love for your spouse.

    The reason divorce takes place is because of the hardness in someone’s heart. Love is more than emotion as well all know. I liken it to the cake and icing with cake being the commitment and icing being the emotional love. Icing can make the cake better but icing without cake is nothing but too much sugar and fake. Cake can be made and eaten without icing but icing makes it better. So emotional love is really nothing without the commitment.
