and purpose, apart from God?
Who is He? What is He? What is He about? Did He really make ME, and if so, why? Reasonable questions, don’t you agree?
The bible says things like:
In the beginning God… Genesis 1:1 NIV
Through Him all things were made… John 1:3 NIV
For everything, absolutely everything, above and below, visible and invisible,… Everything got started in Him and finds it’s purpose in him. Colossians 1:16 The Message
For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son… John 3:16 NIV
God is love… 1 John 4:8
Long before He laid down earth’s foundations, He had us in mind, had settled on us as the focus of His love… Ephesians 1:4 The Message
In Him was life, and that life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness but the darkness has not understood it… John 1:4-5 NIV
We are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do… Ephesians 2:10 NIV
Without faith it is impossible to please God… Hebrews 11:6 NIV
In Rick Warren’s great book on this subject, he quotes, atheist, Bertrand Russell as saying, “Unless you assume a God, the question of life’s purpose is meaningless.”
We should make it our duty to at least examine these things, don’t you agree?
