Even though the answers by both Narnian and Mojo, completely and accurately answer your question. I felt it necessary to add some more elaboration to what they said. We must take into account the fact that we now understand that the Messiah referred to Jesus Christ as the son of God. Before Jesus death and resurrection, the Jewish nation was expecting a ...

What if you try, with a good heart, and make mistakes out of ignorance, and become more and more confused. Is it possible to hurt more than try to be good and do good things through ignorance? Fear and confusion can fill a heart and mind making proper actions, even with the most innocent of intentions, almost impossible and very heartbepreaking to the ...

I have read that the early church fathers put Matthew first because they thought it was the earliest and also was more important than Mark (Sermon on the Mount, etc.) We now have good reason to believe that Mark was first from textual and literary analysis.

My concordance does not record the word luck as in the bible. Do we have an ability to shape our destiny? Yes. We have choice.

I'll give you one perpective. According to the following verse: Romans 8:28 (ESV) And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good,fn for those who are called according to his purpose. In other words, to the Christian who has grown to love and trust God implicitly, God's hand is in everything in his life, in both good and ...

The Bible does not have any Scriptures on 'luck' per se , but does have several in which it talks about chance. The difference is that chance according to Webster is: An event that happens, falls out or takes place, without being contrived, intended, expected or foreseen; the effect of an unknown cause, or the unusual or unexpected effect of a ...
