MYTHBUSTERS: It Must Be God's Will

April 14, 2013Randy Christian

When I was 22 years old I was hit by a truck. I was fortunate in that I only suffered orthopedic injuries and the loss of a large amount of my skin. As I was explaining my injuries to a friend at school, he said “I’m sure God has a purpose for this–after all, it was his will!” Really? God wanted me to get hit by a truck? Is everything that happens God’s will, or is that a myth?

Debe Ser La Voluntad de Dios
Cuando tenía 22 años de edad fui atropellado por un camión. Tuve la suerte de que sólo sufrí lesiones ortopédicas y la pérdida de una gran cantidad de mi piel. Cuando le estaba explicando mis lesiones a un amigo en la escuela, él dijo “Estoy seguro de que Dios tiene un propósito para esto–después de todo, fue su voluntad!” ¿De veras? ¿Dios quería ser que yo fuera golpeado por un camión? ¿Es todo lo que sucede la voluntad de Dios o solo un mito?

“Charity begins at home” is a phrase that has been used as a “cop-out”-an excuse for not helping others when we are able. But we do have a responsibility to take care of of those closest to us-and to live responsibly so that we can do that. Join us as we explore how we, as a body, can take care of each other.

Very few people would say peace is a bad thing. We talk about it. We plan for it. We believe it is a good thing. But we don’t all have it. The world is in turmoil—the opposite of peace—and has been for as long as historians can describe. So, what hope do we have for peace—real, lasting, deep peace? The only one who can make peace a reality is the one who created a peaceful world to begin with. Join us as we learn about real peace, and how it comes to us.
