    What is the meaning of life?

    Knowing that we were created to glorify God and enjoy Him forever gives us a beginning to a meaningful life. There is an entire book that records enough of how human history has worked out and what God plans to yet do for us to grasp the substance of His message if we are willing to hear His Word. 

    The record is wrapped in themes of evil and justice, long suffering mercy, and His love.  It must be read with a heart desiring to receive what God tells us if the reading is to be profitable.  I recommend either the NAS Bible or the ESV Bible.

    We hear a lot about religion, and the Bible definitely talks about that topic, but the focus is on the relationship that gives meaning to lives.  If this is new to you, reading the New Testament from one of these Bibles could be the best starting point.

    To crush your enemies, to see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of their women.

      Understanding the entire context of those passages as well as those days and times is helpful, and knowing that the message of the Christ in the New Testament changed everything is crucial for time and eternity.

    Whatever meaning you assign to it.  Free will at its purest.  If you want to do good things, then do good things.  If you want to do bad, then do bad things.  A little bit of both?  Why not?  Live your life and do what makes you happy.  I think most of us just want to be happy.  A simple concept to comprehend yet it seems happiness is always fleeting before us.

    The function of all humans by design is to conduct consciousness,which results in awareness.
    The more conscious we are,the more aware we become.
    The more aware we are,the more we understand.
    The more we understand,the less we fear.
    The less we fear, the more we are capable of loving...and that's pretty Cool!
