We shape and order our existence by the hundreds of decisions we make each day, and most of these are so trivial that we make them almost automatically. For many of us, the question of God's will hardly enters into our decisions apart from those unusual times when we realize that a specific choice could affect the rest of our lives.
Eternal being something forever, ultimate being the best possible or imaginable. So one is simply about length the other about quality. So perhaps you could have the same meaning you have in your life today forever but it wouldn't be of the quality possible with God.
I think this matters because this world is a horrible place to live forever. Even if you were to cure all illness, poverty, pain theres still the problem of ultimate meaning to it all.
What is the point? You can't have ultimate meaning without God. I don't see it being possible even if you remove the bad parts about this world. I am really sorry and I don't want to attack you, but are being totally inconsistent in your arguments here.
You keep switching between "eternal" and "ultimate" when it suits you, you distinguish between them when it suits you, you keep making undefined assertions only so that you can introduce your "God" into all that, without ever giving an argument for it. Is "meaning" somehow improved because "God"?
(Letter) I wish I could say that I believe in Jesus Christ, that He loves me and cares, but I no longer believe that. From a mother who is vicious and has wrecked my adoptive family to the death of my adoptive brother, I no longer believe. How do you know when God is trying to tell you something? I walked away from a bad car wreck a few weeks ago with only a few scratches, and I couldn't help but wonder why God spared my life. I could have been killed just as easily. To me religion has nothing to do with any specific creed or dogma. It means that belief and that faith in the heart of a man which makes him try to live his life according to the highest standard which he is .
All you do is asserting that your version is better, but you cannot even agree on what would be better about it. The core of all your claims, and the base of the problem: So you cannot have X if you don't have X.
INTRODUCTION: Many times over the years people have expressed to me they were trying to find God's will for their lives. Often they make statements like "I really do not know what God wants me to do." We first must determine what the person means by their statement they are seeking God's will.
They have followed me throughout my life and I have always just figured it was my spirit animal and that they were trying to tell me something. Or that I am meant for more than what I . “Call to Me and I will answer you, and I will tell you great and mighty things, which you do not know” (Jeremiah NASB).
The other day my wife came home from work and said she’s leaving me because she doesn’t love me anymore.
Mar 12, · 3. Seek God. He wants a relationship with you. He wants you to pursue His Kingdom because you will eternally be part of it.
“You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.” Jeremiah “Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.” Matthew 4. .
