The Meaning of Life, part 1

An Introduction to Life With God

The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy says it’s 42. Darwinism says it’s survival. Western media suggests it’s pleasure. Tragically, many have taken their own lives because they didn’t think it existed. Others choose not to think about it at all.

As the title betrayed, I’m talking about the Meaning of Life. Regardless of whether we’re young or old, rich or poor, what we drive, where we live, what education we have, who our family is, what our nationality is, if we’re married or single, if we have kids, or even where we’ll get our next meal - this question is fundamental to everything else in our lives.

Facets of Truth

I like truth. I like to know how things work. I like to know what is real and what isn't. I like to know if there's a best solution to a problem and if so, what it is. I like to know when it's best to hold on tight and when it's best to let go. I like to know what will help and what will hurt. And all of this has led me to search for truth and ask many questions.

With this first post, I'll explain why I've chosen to share what's on my mind.

I once saw a bumper sticker that cynically asked, "If Jesus is the answer, what was the question?" The things I just listed are these questions, and there are many more. I've found the answer is Jesus of Nazareth - and it's no cliché to say that he is the truth.
