The meaning of life is to meet the creator of its life and to walk together with Him. It is not for just to enjoy luxury but for worshiping the Lord with whole heart, mind and strength in being. It is for serving and leading the people toward the originator of life.
Only by having connection with the originator (God), the lives that we live now would find satisfaction. Life without God is like falling down in the big hole which can not find real peace and purpose in life
I'm sure that's the case for many religious people, but it's not always the answer to a life of fulfillment. There are those who believe in God, and live to serve him, and find no real meaning to their lives, and no happiness.
Interesting, I disagree. Believers who are serving God have true meaning in their lives. Life is without God is empty. God did not create people to only live, enjoy life and die. No matter how much wealth, and knowledge a person may have, their lives will never be fulfilled without God.
To live as best and happy as you can, and most importantly Love. No religion no politics just enjoy the experience as best as we can within all this madness. Stay clear of confusion and keep a clear mind. This is a short ride so just trust your heart and nothing else.
Ever since man learned to walk upright, he must have looked at the stars and wondered what he was here for. Nothing has changed. The human mind needs meaning to make it feel important. But evidence would suggest, that life is not designed for a purpose, but the result of millions of years of evolution. The human creature will not last for ever; we will go the same way as all of the other species before us, and the universe will never have been aware of our being here at all. Realising this, then the only answer for me to the question, is that there is no meaning to life, and any meaning we give it, is purely the invention of our evolved brains.
There is meaning for mathematicians, which is anything done should make a profit. And there is meaning for aesthetics, which is preserving what is already perfect, like nature or great institutions. Or there is meaning in the absence of meaning as anything can mean anything.
To live a life full of wonder and passion, free of hostilities, judgement, greed, and prejudice signifies hope for the future of the human species. The more that live this way, the more hope I feel. But I can only act for me, and as best I can, guide my children similarily. For me, religion doesn't cut it - it fails on all counts.
I saw in another forum a good discussion on 10 questions that someone wanted to ask a Christian, so I came up with a few questions that I want to ask an evolutionary naturalist.1. Since naturalism can be logically...
Some scientists, with astro-physicists leading the charge, have gone out on a limb to say flatly that the formation of the Universe had nothing to do with God(or any such Supernatural Being), but with...
Christians often tell atheists that without god there is no purpose to life. But they never tell us what this purpose is. So I would Christians o tell us in concrete terms what purpose it is they are talking about. It...
