When a person draws closer to God, through prayer, the Mind of God enters into the person.
Thus, the person "know" things that would otherwise be unknown to them.
Thus, being acquainted with the Will of God and the Mind of God, a person is guided toward
God's purpose for them.
Alternatively, questions about a Purpose of an Existence, outside the context of a God,
are meaningless anyway, because there is no evidence showing that a "purpose" exists beyond the context of a God.
Why must our existence have a purpose? It is for you to decide what purpose to give it, if any at all.
Did you see my reference to existentialism? Check out those philosophers if you have interest in these this kind of things.
Michael ... You will discover the purpose of human life if you were to read and study the Holy Bible, it reveals God's plan to free us from sin. The best way for you to learn English is by reading the Holy Bible in your native language of Portuguese and then read the Holy Bible in English.
Bruce ... I'm glad that you have accepted the power of the Holy Spirit ... :)
Matt and Steve H... Why do you decide to keep on living if you believe your existence has no purpose or no higher purpose than natural instinct or self perservation?
Hey, monkey man ... Steve H ... How are you doing? Do you wake up each morning and decide that you will keep on living only because of natural instincts such as breathing, eating or sex? How sad is that! :( Of course, this won't be as sad for you as when God sends you to Hell because you have denied your maker and you refused to submit yourself to God's will.
The purpose of your life is set by what you want from your life.
@Bruce, I totally agree with you. Getting close to God helps you find out about your destiny and fulfill it.
Shill66, I said "it is for you to decide what purpose to give it".
Also, please be "civil". Talking about someone being sent to Hell for not believing in God is no different from me proposing you should be waterboarded until your delusion is washed away.
You ask a great question. You can discover our purpose of life by reading. Start with holy books, I mean Qu'ran and Bible. Ask God (Allah) to show you the way and finally you will know. I am Muslem so I believe we created to worship Allah and to be a good person. Do not depent about the other opinion. Start to make a search about that, there is a purpose for every things.
Whoa ,,, Matt and Steve H ... Why do you godless atheists always get so personal and pissed off when people of faith discuss the purpose of life and God's final judgement of our lives. Steve H, why would you be offended that I called you a monkey man? Aren't you convinced that humans evolved from monkeys?
There is no purpose.
How do you know that you actually do exist? Maybe you are just in a sort of dream. And if you don't even exist, then it is literally impossible to have a purpose.
