The Meaning In Life?

Would God create a being with greater authority than God?

Could God do this?

Would God create slaves or would God create beings of equal authority?

If You had a disagreement with God, who could judge both of You who could possibly have that authority?

So this is what I believe the meaning in life to be:

"The realization that every individual has complete SELF AUTHORITY."

My view is that meaning in

My view is that meaning in life, much like in art, must be interpreted by the individual. I don't think there is one right way to live or interpret meaning. Those who do usually have a belief system they are peddling. What does Bokonon say?

"And God said, 'Let Us make living creatures out of mud, so the mud can see what We have done.' And God created every living creature that now moveth, and one was man. Mud as man alone could speak. God leaned close as mud as man sat up, looked around, and spoke. Man blinked. 'What is the purpose of all this?' he asked politely.

'Everything must have a purpose?' asked God.

'Certainly,' said man.

'Then I leave it to you to think of one for all this,' said God."

That's an easy question.

Ecc_12:13 "Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear GOD, and keep His commandments: for this is the whole duty of man."

If you remember this then you wont be a slave to the world, you will be a Son of GOD.

He did give all authority to His only son but that is not hard to do when your son is obedient and is of the same mind.

GOD can be persuaded. Moses convinced Him not to destroy rebellious Israel a few times, but I wouldn't argue with Him about disagreements with His Law or His authority.

I hope these answered your questions.

Why would a perfect all

Why would a perfect all knowing omnipotent being be able to be persuaded? Just another laughable contradiction of religion and those who suspend all belief to feast on its euphoria just as all drug addicts do.

Funny because you can't make up your mind.

Whether you hate Him for being cruel and unyielding or because he is compassionate to those who love Him. You can't have it both ways hypocrite.

Then again people like you are full of self righteous reasons to reject truth.

"but I wouldn't argue with

"but I wouldn't argue with Him about disagreements with His Law or His authority." Yes you would! The freedom bug is in you now, there's no going back. I know that if I go to heaven and he's not what I think he is, we're gonna have some problems! I'm not staying there! And he has to let me leave or else he's a slave master! It's that's simple guys. Let's say I killed someone here on earth, when I get to heaven to be judged, whose doing the judging? God!? If that's the case I want another judge, because the Christian god is a hypocrite. You can't say thou shall not kill and then kill! Just because you have the power to do something, doesn't mean you do it. I'm probably going to have some problems when I get up there guys lol. The way I see it, god and I are equals. For the people who say I'm crazy for making that statement, you guys are still living in the slave mentality. You give up one form of control just for another! Why isn't god our equal? Because he created us? So! What does that mean? A kid shouldn't just respect his parents blindly, they should have to work for his trust.

There is no freedom without Messiah.

But you are perfectly free to reject Him and be content with your limited life of slavery. I am free because I don't strive for the things of this world. You will always be a slave because this world is all you have.

Unless your "messiah" is just

Unless your "messiah" is just a man made invention in-line with what man has done throughout history to explain what he did not know. Then you have enslaved yourself.

Though you are ignorant

I still hold hope that you will somehow learn. No matter how much you feebly try to insult making yourself sound like an idiot. You obviously don't know what you are talking about.

You have nothing beyond this world and you can't stand those of us who do.

He thinks he is just going to

He thinks he is just going to rot in the ground, and misery loves company.

How many times do myself and

How many times do myself and others have to explain to you to learn history. I mean seriously there has been countless threads where people will show you the written record both Biblical and non biblical of Jesus and you still moronically say the same idiot atheist thing over and over again. You have been presented the historical record countless times now, we can all only conclude that you are willfully ignorant.

Amen

Amen

Even if we grant your

Even if we grant your "realization" as an accurate reflection of the way things really are - specifically, that each 'person' (whatever that is) has self contained authority over him/herself - merely knowing this 'fact' adds no more meaning to life than does knowing the square root of 4.

It depends...

It depends primarily on who or what created your god. If they were created with equality of their creator, then they could pass it on.

Very Sad

So you are your own God? That's what has gotten us into this mess in the first place. Find humility my brother. The farther we stray from our Lord, the worse things get. That much is certain.

If a person is their own God,

If a person is their own God, then I guess that makes it OK to decide who lives and who dies. God takes lives, so I guess to be a God, a person has to take some lives.

This is the problem with proclaiming oneself a God.

I don't know if you realize

just how accurate your statement is or just how far we have removed ourselves from GOD.

You definitely get high marks for confessing this truth.

Our "Removal from God"

...and the plan to "direct" people to a NWO is an insidious plot hatched many years ago.
Most are unaware of the depth of planning that went into this nefarious scheme and , exactly who was actively invo;lved behind-the-scenes, and out-in-the-open.
I read this book years ago...it will blow your mind:
H.G.Wells, John Dewey, Margaret Sanger,The NEA, Planned Parenthood are exposed as participants in a plan to indoctrinate the masses into the belief in "humanism"; in short; the belief in Man as God.

Free will

is something that God can't mess with. But human understanding of things will only get you so far. That is why we are supposed to pray for a higher authority and despise the things of this world. Such fleeting small weak things we are and yet we dream that we hold some lasting power in this little life. You reap what you sew.

But about myself I will not boast, except as it concerns my weaknesses (2 Cor 12:5). Let the unbelievers seek praise from each other; I wish that which is from God alone.
