To worship God and love others. Grow closer to God.

That is why we were created.

Now all has been heard;
here is the conclusion of the matter:
Fear God and keep his commandments,
for this is the duty of all mankind.
For God will bring every deed into judgment,
including every hidden thing,
whether it is good or evil.
Ecclesiastes 12:13,14

Seek God, reach out for Him, and find Him.

Acts 17:24-27

New International Version (NIV)

24 “The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples built by human hands. 25 And he is not served by human hands, as if he needed anything. Rather, he himself gives everyone life and breath and everything else. 26 From one man he made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he marked out their appointed times in history and the boundaries of their lands. 27 God did this so that they would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from any one of us.

While we are having no problem with the meaning of Life, we are struggling to define the word 'conception' as in, the below from the Constitution of the Republic of Maine, which will voted on in the Maine election of June 12, 2018.

Section 6. The Militia and the standing army of 1,000. So as to insure and guarantee the rights guaranteed in this Constitution, every natural born male in the Republic of Maine, upon reaching the age of 18 years from conception through age 67 years from conception, has, as a member of the Militia, the obligation to keep and bear arms for the common defense, for his and his families protection, to defend against this government or any government in the future from becoming oppressive, tyrannical, or in any other way obnoxious to freedom, and to secure the rights written in this Constitution. This obligation shall never be questioned. No law shall be passed that restricts this obligation, except for time in a local jail, county jail or Maine Republic prison. No law shall be passed, test given, or fee assessed to any citizen of the Republic of Maine that would restrict in any way that citizens right to be armed either concealed or open. Males who are found to be or confess to being homosexuals are exempted from serving in either the Militia or the standing army. Males over the age of 65 may be voluntary members of the militia with the full rights of Militia members. Natural born males between the age of 16 years from conception to 18 years from conception may volunteer for militia service with the written permission of parents or guardians. The standing army of 1,000 shall be drawn from the militia by the commander of the Militia and is under the command of the commander of the militia who is appointed by and reports directly to the President.

I have underlined the part that requires a legal definition since we have been told that since the US will be challenging the vote, not on the legality of our voting to be free, but based upon wording that is unclear. Not everyone that works in justice is a commie destroyer of freedom.

Stuff.

Accumulate lots and lots of stuff that you like, and other people can go get sc****d unless they're useful to you getting your stuff.

Let them go get their own stuff on their own and don't you lift a finger for them.

This nice lady named Ayn Rand wrote lots of books about it. /s

===============================================

Seriously... See posts 3, 7, and 11.

Everything else is just vanity.

The ultimate meaning of our lives is our relationship with God.

Everything else goes away.

“Life is like a peanut butter sandwich.”

No, life is more like a crap sandwich. The more bread you have, the less crap you have to deal with.

Could be bacon. It used to be free cheese. But I still think at least 51% of the electorate would go with food stamps.

90% in Detroit.

The meaning of life is to get as much as you can. Grab yours, screw the other guy. Nail chicks, drive fast, and above all, WIN. The most important thing is to lose compassion and love, so you can screw your neighbor with no conscious.

To speak the truth of Gods plan of escape for peoples doomed future. Jesus lead a perfect life, he took the punishment we deserved because of His great mercy, and He conquered death on the cross so we could have eternal life if we have faith, and walk that narrow road with Him. For that we give thanks and praise, loving all people and knowing all have eternal souls and will be with God eternally or alone without God in eternal regret and suffering. That is why we must have compassion and pray for our enemies. They are blinded by the evil one. We live to praise God for who He is and all He has done.
