The Meaning Of Life

What is the meaning of life? What is the meaning of it all? What is the meaning of philosophy? The answer to that last question is here.

Ah, another twist and turn in an entry of Roland’s Ramblings! Don’t you just love it? Or, does that get you frustrated?
None-the-less, our attention is now diverted to the subject of philosophy.
Below is a direct quote from the website All About Philosophy.org:

    I think it’s real simple. One man came and did miracles –some of his followers healed people who had been lame since birth –He himself, healed 10 lepers –the blind, the deaf, the mute, raised the dead and calmed a storm –all with a word.

    He said He was sent of God to fulfill the Jewish prophecies –and to save us from sin and death. And hundreds saw Him alive after his death.

    So what more do we want??? According to Rick Warren’s book on the Purpose-driven Life:

    Our purpose is to 1. love and glorify God –obey Him

    and 2. to love mankind and obey God about them

    and 3. to imitate Christ –learn of Him –desire to do what the rabbi does, know what the rabbi knows, think as he thinks, etc.

    and 4. to serve the Body of Christ with all resources of time, talent and money –and fellowship with the Church

    and 5. to tell others about Him so they may be saved.

    We are here because a designer/Creator wanted us to be here –and He made everything that was –and He communicated with us through the prophets and apostles and their writings –and through the Holy Spirit, the felt presence of God in our lives. We are to be redeemed by Him through Jesus of Nazareth, who became the ultimate Passover Lamb for the sins of the world.
