The Truth
by: Anonymous

I am just starting out in college so I know I have a lot to learn but I am sure that God has called me to be a christian counselor. Everything in the world relates back to God's word and I believe the reason why so many people find only a temporary solution to their problems is because they do not view their difficulties from a spiritual perspective and that is exactly why people have problems...because they are spiritually unstable. I just finished a project for my intro to marriage and family class that had to do with divorce and the bible really does have the answer for everything. The top three most difficult problems within marriage to solve are alcoholism, lack of loving feelings, and serious individual problems. It says in the bible in Romans 12:2, "Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind." That right there solves alcoholism, if only people would adhere to that principle. As far as lack of loving feelings goes, it says in 1 Corinthians 13:4-5 "Love is patient, love is kind...It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs." Many people are self-seeking in the sense that they will only stay in a relationship as long as it is beneficial to themselves. Also, in 1 Corinthians 13:7 it says "It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres." Another scripture on hope (Proverbs 13:12) states "Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life." Therefore, losing hope within marriage will "make the heart sick." Furthermore, having serious individual problems stems from trying to solve problems with our own human abilities and not relying on God. For it says in Matthew 19:26 "With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible." There are so many other truths and there are so many people searching for the answers. I pray that everyone who reads this will give God a chance because He really does have all of the answers. Thank you!

Religion is the opiate of the masses. Everyone should burn their bibles or start using their reason and courage to seek truth.
