If it is true that everyone has a purpose, a pre-determined reason for existing, then what do you believe is the true meaning behind your life?

Well said, my friend, and for this splendid display of wisdom, I shall honor your thoughtful comment with a vote up!!! :0)
So, what you are saying is, that your life is without purpose and it is utterly meaningless. I cannot understand what prompts you to get out of bed in the morning knowing that nothing you do matters ultimately. No rewards...no punishment. Depressing!
It is not meaningless if you choose a meaning yourself. People get out of bed because they want to live the short life they have and have fun, I would say our reward is our legacy. To think you know what happens after death is insane we cant know yet
everything i do matters bud. i can't understand you getting out of bed and thinking some god is watching me. i get the reward of my families love, what's depressing about that?
In the game of life, you are the trophy, my friend. You may be surprised to know that all the inhabitants of heaven are standing on their tip-toes to see who will win the ultimate prize, which is eternal life through Christ Jesus. Your life matters!
i agree with Dantex460 100 %. to say that the inhabitants of heaven are doing anything is absurd. and i'd also be beyond surprised to know what you said CJ Sledgehammer. eternal life, ya right.
I am glad that you are in this world. Your positive attitude is refreshing.
But would not your step 5 actually suggest that there was already a set purpose, you just have to find out what it is?
"Set Purpose" implies predestination, and I do not believe that is Biblical. Please understand that not everyone has a specific purpose, other than God's general purpose for mankind, and most of that centers on how one should treat God and others.
