Is it true that everything happens for a reason?

spiritual battle Does everything happen for a reason? There are several known factors that help us to answer this question: the law of cause and effect, the law of grace, and the doctrine of the providence of God. These factors demonstrate that everything does happen for a reason, not just by happenstance or by random chance.

First, there is the natural law of cause and effect, also known as the law of sowing and reaping. Paul said, “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. The one who sows to please his sinful nature, from that nature will reap destruction; the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life” (Galatians 6:7-8). This means that in every action we take or word we utter, whether good or evil, there are certain inevitable results that follow (Colossians 3:23-25). Full Story

What sort of New Year’s Resolution should a Christian make?What sort of New Year’s Resolution should a Christian make? - The practice of making New Year’s resolutions goes back over 3,000 years to the ancient Babylonians.

Bible Study
A Pattern of Departure from GodA Pattern of Departure from God - Jeremiah the “weeping prophet,” was sent to warn God’s people to return to the Lord. His pleas to them, his tears for their rebellion, fill the books of Jeremiah and Lamentations. He writes that Israel had forgotten the Lord, they had forsaken God, they had corrupted His teaching and worship. Then he adds, “My people love to have it so”.

 

Health & Wellness
Teen Pregnancy in the United StatesTeen Pregnancy in the United States - In 2012, a total of 305,388 babies were born to women aged 15-19 years, for a live birth rate of 29.4 per 1,000 women in this age group. This is a record low for U.S. teens in this age group, and a drop of 6% from 2011. Birth rates fell 8% for women aged 15-17 years, and 5% for women aged 18-19 years. While reasons for the declines are not clear, teens seem to be less sexually active, and more of those who are sexually active seem to be using birth control than in previous years.
