Whats God's Purpose for you .......Or what is the purpose of your life here on earth

What's your purpose for being here ? Do you think that your life is already planned out ? That basically you can't change destiny/fate , or can you decide what even happens in your life ? Thats the question ....I know this kinda sucks but It just came up in my head so i decided to post it up .

I dont believe in GOd so I know he hasnt planned my life, and I do believe in Free Will, so i know both my own actions and the action of others will shape my life.

God has a purpose for everybody. To become someone great. To treat
people with respect. To provide for the family. You can become what you want. But GOD already knows what will happen in the end. He lets
you decide whether or not you want to be the person he intended you to be.

Yes I do beleive in GOD but I do not see him as knowing my future but letting me make my own decisions, a free entity do as I wish free.

I do beleive that he is far superior in knowledge & has some way of manipulatiing time & space has the power to creat & take away life as he sees fit but is loving & open!

I do believe in him, but I choose not to worship him I speak to him at night knowing that he listens & that he gives me the free will to do as I see fit. I have a consciouse feeling of what is right or wrong & will be judged on that & no one elses beleifs.

I do not feel he wants us to take another's life, that is hes doing & no one elses. He is the judge & no one has the right to judge anyone.

I see him as a father, letting me become my own persone & being proud of me no matter what the outcome is. Unconditional Love.

I agree with you on that. I don't even go to church that often. I do talk to him at night. I feel we only differ in that I think he does know what will happen in the end. I feel that since he is so alimighty and powerful in creating everything, he will sureley know the beginning and end of everthing. Just my view. Your view is fully understandable.

God

I believe in God. I have asked a few favors of Him, even. As for what His plans are... I pondered this often in Middle School. I have decided that God made several paths for us. Every major juncture in our lives represents a fork in the path. God has a relatively good idea of how we'll turn out, but he allows us to make our lives as we trudge along. It always just seemed to make sense to me... Do with my theories as you like!

If Capitalism was a religion, then Wall St. would be my Mecca and the image of Ben Franklin on the $100 bill would be my messiah! Yes, I am a Capitalist! Yes I am decadent! It's a strange thing to say but I am proud of it--anybody who says that money is the root of all evil doesn't have any.

I believe in God. I believe that everything we do affects us in some way or another. Even if it is just getting up and walking to the other side of the room, I believe that it affects out lives somehow.

Then, they are mis-quoting it. It says: "The LOVE of money is the root of all evil".

Having money is no crime is God's eyes, but it is when all you care about is getting more at the expense of others.
