Does God Give Second Chances?

Nearly half of all people feel the weight of a bad choice from their past, even though a vast majority believe God gives second chances, according to a new study from LifeWay Research.

Print47 percent of respondents agreed when asked to respond to the statement, “I am dealing with the consequences of a bad decision.”

Self-defined Protestant or non-denominational Christians are less likely to agree (42 percent), and a majority (51 percent) of those who said they are a born-again, evangelical or fundamentalist Christian agree they are still dealing with a wrong choice from their past.

“Christians minister grace out of grace,” said Ed Stetzer, president of LifeWay Research. “Caring for those dealing with pain and regrets is not about fulfilling obligations or relieving guilt, as all of that has already been taken care of by Christ.”

So yes, God does give second chances. Listen to him and you will understand.
