Meaning of life and god
So what has God done so we can have a close relationship with him?
Biblical meaning of life
He led me in career paths that are far more expansive and exciting than I ever dreamed. An atheist can do that, but for those who claim to be Christians, our purpose is not our own glory. We can extrapolate this to some of the things that we do for ourselves as well. On the surface, it does look like naturalism's implication that we cease to exist at death dooms life to meaninglessness in the second, important sense. For the last few years of his life, when he was in better health, I would go and visit him when I could. On the one hand, it seems intuitively plausible that God could exist. My spouse and I did what we could to save him—we even drove him from Ann Arbor to East Lansing so that he could receive the best possible health care at Michigan State University. Consequently, if it is plausible to think that God's existence is indeed compatible with these facts about meaningful lives in the second sense , then it is plausible to reject an affirmative answer to Q7. He was loving and compassionate.
It's no fun. And though selfish activities are probably important components of a meaningful life, it is doubtful that anyone could find a meaningful life solely in selfish activities.
So, out of his great love, he became that perfect human being and met those standards for me. Nor should life always be serious.
Yes, they are. My search continued. For instance, some people might believe that Heaven infuses life with meaning since it makes life "for something"—namely, a means to the end of living eternally in Heaven.
Just as it is absurd to measure the intensity of love after the partners have split, or the brightness of a star after it has burned out, it is absurd to measure the meaning of a life by what things are like outside of that life.
Our sin has separated us from God, who is holy.
What is our purpose in life according to god
God has such a genuine love for us that he himself provided the way for us to get close to him They will then, at best, adopt a kind of moralism, a goodness that is relative to the preferences and situation and live a kind of conditional love. And like him, I found that Jesus' statements about himself were quite unique. On the one hand, it does seem like the answer to this question is a definite "Yes": since God is a person and persons create things for purposes, human life must have been created for a purpose. So, what's at the core? And this is to think that if there is a metaphysical role that needs to be filled, then it can only—and therefore must—be filled by God. What do you think?
