Now I’ve been told that the Purpose of life is to give glory to God through enjoying him. My first thought was – That’s a great thought. But what about if your not a Christian? After alot of thought I realized that whether your a Christian or not your purpose doesn’t change. We don’t decide our purpose. Our creator does.
Think to a time in your life where you’ve designed something; anything. You designed it to accomplish something to have a set purpose. If you are a toy car, you can’t not like the way that you drove one day and decide to become a toy robot. Just like if you design a car: you designed it to be a car, and that’s what it’s purpose is. The car can’t just all of a sudden pull out of the garage one day and decide to be an airplane.
For me to say, whether you are Christian or not the purpose of your life is to Give Glory to God, is extremely single minded. To argue with me though, what are the alternatives? Even look at the issue on a lower level: what are the alternatives to Christianity – Evolution – That man came from Monkeys?
Everyone knows of course that you can argue it both way. Will science every be able to prove the big bang? Evolution? The Bible? Is there already proof and are we just to blind to see it? Science is continually discovering things. Things like the dead sea scrolls, things like fossils and bones. Back and forth, and back and forth I’m sure that it will go our through out our entire lives.
I’ve heard both arguements, several times, as I’m sure all have.This isn’t about my opinion but rather: Either source that you choose to believe in is a risk. What you have to decide for yourself is what risk is more valuable to take.
