Survival, Pleasure … and Eternity

May 10, 2014

What is the point of being on this planet? Is it survival? Is it pleasure? And how does death and eternity fit into those approaches?

This is why PROOF of the Bible is critical.

That is, if there is no eternity for humans, then we should do as the Bible says, “Eat, drink and be merry.”

But that approach to survival and pleasure for some is often at the expense of poverty, pain and even death for others. So that is a very selfish existence.

Whereas, the Bible’s approach of love and holiness is perfect. Eternal survival and pleasure, and no guilt. (And think about it, if the aforementioned approach is natural and right, why would guilt even be a part of the human design?)

And in light of the Universe and the proof that it had a Creator (of it, us and what’s on this planet), there is nothing more good or beautiful. And we should be thankful that in the end, good triumphs. And it and what has gone on on this planet is all very understandable (as spelled out in my book Why Are We Here?).
