Karma, maybe some things but not always. I don`t believe bad things happen because God wants them too. People make their own decisions. Wish I knew what you were asking about

I fully believe that everything happens for a reason. It may not be the way we want it but it's for a reason. I don't know if this was a ESP experience or one of those "it happens for a reason" But my son had asked me if he could go with a few friends of his to help a guy tear down a house. He was only 17 at the time and I didn't like the idea of him going to Cleveland ( we live in Akron ,Ohio) but he talked me into it!!! As I was packing him a lunch to take that next morning I got the strangest feeling. To this day I can't explain it..I just knew it was feeling of bad news.. I went to my son and told him I changed my mind and he just couldn't go..He threw a fit and ranted but he got over it and went to bed..The next day we found out that those guys got hit in rear end by a gravel truck..No one got killed but they were messed up with stitches, one had broken arm and one had to spend few days in hospital..If my son would have gone there would have been five in that car.. the rear end of that car was pushed to front seat..The guy who drove told me that it was good thing my son didn't go because who ever would have been in middle of that back seat would have been messed up more than rest..Was it ESP, A mothers intuition or just things happen for a reason..

He said its not his will that any should perish but all have eternal life. He`s not making you commit adultry or sin any other way, then tell you that you can`t be saved because you are doing it. The choice is yours. He won`t force you to do something against your will.

Saying "Everything happens for a reason." is an easy-out for weak minded people who refuse to take any responsibility. It's very easy to go through life saying "Oh well, everything happens for a reason", but it's not a mature, or realistic assumption.

Really? You are lacking in simple education. Allow me to demonstrate. "For every action,there is an equal and opposite re-action." It's called "Cause and effect, look into it. Maybe you'll see things differently.

Lacking education? You just quoted Newton's laws of motion. What does that have to do with what we're discussing? Newton's laws of motion are three physical laws which provide relationships between the forces acting on a body and the motion of the body.
We're talking about events that happen in one’s life. So again I say, as far as events in one’s life go, not everything happens for a reason, but you can find or create meaning from everything that has happened.

I hate to burst your bubble of superiority, but I can understand why your post was so confusing to Non-Believer. You said "For every action, there is an equal and opposite re-action." This IS Newton’s Third Law of Motion.
Let me show you your statement so you can see where you were seriously mistaken.
YOU stated:

"Really? You are lacking in simple education. Allow me to demonstrate. "For every action, there is an equal and opposite re-action." It's called "Cause and effect, look into it. Maybe you'll see things differently."

"For every action, there is an equal and opposite re-action." This, my good man, is Newton's Third Law of Motion and it concerns physics. You called it "Cause and Effect" (Which is an Ideology) and, of course these are two completely different things.

Try to educate yourself with solid facts before you call posters names. In my opinion you owe Non-Believer an apology. He was correct. He's not to blame for your inability to post intelligently.

Poser. You don't get it. I don't CARE what you have to say. I'm laughing at you because you are arguing on the internet. None of this matters. Just to prove it, here you go.
