WHY? A question for all

09 April 2013, 12:00

I would like the answer to this question:

If God created man - what exactly was his purpose in doing so?

He created all living things we are told, including mankind. We are also told that all mankind is tarred in 'sin' from - their very first breath.   Imperfect and fallible.

God then decreed that man should live by god's word but gave them the choice to do so or not.

If man chooses to not live by 'god's word', man is ultimately banished to perish in hell by god.  That is what the bible tells us and we are told the bible is god’s word.

What exactly was god's point, purpose or reason for creating man in the first place then???? Can anyone tell me?

The brightest minds on earth have spent many years analyzing and debating the meaning of every word written in the bible.    Yet no one has come up with the answer to this simple question.   WHY did god create man in the first instance?

Debate about the bible is a complete waste of mental energy until we know the answer to this question.

If god did NOT create man, then the bible and all its words are meaningless.

If god DID create the man described in the bible - then WHY?

How can we make belief or faith claims without knowing the factual purpose or reason why humans even exist at all?
