Why are we here?
Evolution theorists teach us that man is an accident of nature that evolved from a single cell.
Therefore, there is no reason or purpose for why we are here.
However, if you believe that we were created then, there is a purpose for our existence and we must seek God to know His purpose for our individual lives. Romans 8:28
So which faith is right?
The short answer is:
Who Is Right believes that the Christian perspective is correct;
but we want to encourage you to come to your own conclusions.
Why are we here then?
The long answer will involve us considering every faith and alternative explanation for our existence. Most website visits are short and in the limited time that we have left we would prefer to encourage you begin this journey starting with some questions to research. Got questions.org identified, amongst other things, two key questions.
1. Logical consistency— the claims of a belief system must logically cohere to each other and not contradict in any way. As an example, the end goal of Buddhism is to rid oneself of all desires. Yet, one must have a desire to rid oneself of all desires, which is a contradictory and illogical principle.
2. Empirical adequacy—is there evidence to support the belief system (whether the evidence is rational, externally evidential, etc.)? Naturally, it is only right to want proof for important claims being made so the assertions can be verified. For example, Mormons teach that Jesus visited North America. Yet there is absolutely no proof, archaeological or otherwise, to support such a claim.”
You should seek to have a clear understanding about at least the following four issues:
“1. Origin – where did we come from? 2. Ethics – how should we live? 3. Meaning – what is the purpose for life? 4. Destiny – where is mankind heading?” .
Is there a God?
It is statistically significant that millions of people believe that there is a God and many of them are intelligent and balanced individuals and so it would be unwise not to look at the evidence that they present.
Amongst other things, as Christians, we know that God is real because we speak to Him and He has answered. He has forgiven us, begun to change us, and put unexplainable peace into our hearts.
If there is a God, why would He allow evil?
When He created us, He gave us free will. We have the right to love or ignore Him. We can choose to help others, and do good or bad.
If he interfered, it would not be true free choice. Deuteronomy 30:19
Why are there very sick and badly deformed people, if there were a God?
In the beginning we were not created that way, but when mankind rejected God, sickness, deformity and death came as a consequence. Genesis 3:2-3
If you are not already a Christian but you are now willing to begin your journey to discover your purpose in life, go to the “What Next” page of Who Is Right and pray the “Salvation prayer” half way down the website page.
