well there are people that take the big question lightly, and some that take it heavily. some people combine those two ways and say it is the best way. sometimes my purpose in life is bouncing from things that i hate over to something where something that i hate isn't. after we die hopefully we aren't hounded by disease of some kind of thing we've been hating all our lives. purpose in life can involve psychologically killing ungraceful pictures that pop in. it can also mean sliding from day to day. i bet you can find godlike qualities in those whose attributes are backward to you because they stand out so much. but will you highlight yourself? maybe the best thing is not to! maybe the best thing is to dig an ant hill and slowly decompose.

Hello Apple and welcome to my lot. I agree with the responder before me I quite don't understand your answer to this post. When we die we go back to the Father that created us 2nd Corinthians 5:7-8 will prove that. We are in spiritual bodies no more pain no more diseases no more growing old. Have a great day!

Well, just like when we want to know if there really is a god, or what happens after we die, our purpose in life is just one of those things that we're never really going to know for sure. We don't know what comes next, so the important thing is to make sure that we make this a good life, appreciating what we've got and helping other people to have good lives too. You didn't say what your answers are to these big questions. What do you think?

Hello Smallcloud. Well you should know my take on God is yes there is a God. I think our purpose in life is to serve God and do Gods will. As it is written in the bible. If you want to know your purpose in life read Mark 13 Matthew 24 and Luke 21. That is where you will learn your destiny in this life. Read the King James version bible and you will find the truth of what we are supposed to do with our lives. Hope this helps you have a great day!

Oh and read Luke 16 it is what we will be doing in heaven. Read 2nd Corinthians 5:7-8 and that is what happens when we die! Hope this helps you have a great day!

The questions you raise have been asked by thinking persons for a long time. Those questions cannot be left unanswered. I'm reminded of this Scripture: Luke 11:9-13 (New International Version) 9"So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. 10For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened. 11"Which of you fathers, if your son asks for a fish, will give him a snake instead? 12Or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion? 13If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!" I am so happy that I found a satisfying answer to all three questions. I wish the same fo you!

There is no doubt there is one God Almighty,Who has created this universe and is controlling it.we all have to die and we will be rewarded or punished for our good or bad deeds.....And the last divine book,the holy Quran tells us about our main purpose of life: "1 HAVE NOT CREATED THE JINN(GHOSTS)AND MEN EXCEPT FOR THIS THAT THEY SHOULD WORSHIP ME." (Surah Adhariyat,verses 56,57,58.......Chap 27,The Holy Quran) So God Almighty wants us all to worship him alone without indulging in polytheism,which is the biggest and unforgivable sin as per the last divine Book,the Holy Quran.This holy book is being divinely protected for centuries and will be protected till the Last Day but people are not refering to it.......
