Life Lessons

Every day we are bombarded with news from our communities, and around the world. Disasters, tragedies, wars, environmental issues, politics, corporate scandals, social and lifestyle issues, winners and losers. The media has touched every part of our lives – feeding us the same information on world events and happenings – creating a bond shared among citizens of this planet. This Bible based site draws Life Lessons from the news.

 

Can we learn deeper ‘life’ lessons from the same stories splashed across the news? Every couple of weeks, a new story is added to this section. Why would we add a piece of news here? We hope that by comparing and contrasting parts of the story to the spiritual side of your life, you will dig deeper, and think about your own personal relationship with God.

 

If the life lesson drawn from the story conflicts with your thinking, please email and let us know. If the story has raised a question or concern in your mind, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us personally.

Back in 1961, it seems Psychiatrist Peter B. Neubauer had a shocking amount of discretion in meddling with humans in researching the nature versus nurture question.
