Not necessarily why , but how is important..
No. We have created many things that have no knowledge or consciousness of what they are or what their purpose is and yet they are still functional.
Yes because when we understand why we were created and why we are here and where we are going. This gives our lives a real purpose for eternity.
It's important to me. So important, in fact, that I did enough research to find out. I'm happy to share it with you.
Long, long ago in the Land beneath the Southern Cross, a healthy, virile young man was enamoured of a shy young lady. He wooed her, and he won her, and he took her to be his wife.
They did all the things husbands and wives were supposed to do in those days. He worked, she kept house, and they were both very proper and very serious. Sometimes, when they weren't too tired, they made love.
One such mating occurred on a night when the Devil had too much time on his hands and he thought to himself, "Lucifer, old son, let's take a hand in this happy occasion."
But, thankfully, an angel of the Lord learned of his plan to create a Devil of their child and he stepped in and blessed the union so that the Devil's wicked scheme was thwarted. And that is why I was created.
Alas, there are two Didges -- one with horns and one with a halo -- but it's the one with the horns that has the most fun.
The "Why" is the reason we defend our children, why we stand against injustice, why we defend the weak and the defenceless. Without the "why" we are just petri dishes. There is no logical reason why the universe should follow any rules, let alone the rules of mathmatics, none whatsoever, but it does.
The How alone, leads to a world dominated controlled and [email protected] by mankind to the extent of species becoming endangered and extinct, and fuel and food resources running low. In comes poverty and disease, lets add war to that because it decreases populus as we are already running short on resources. Let's put the endangered species in zoo's and pump food with preservatives. Let's factory farm animals so we can feed everyone. It doesn't matter how we treat them because they are just animals here to feed us. Let's sterilize african women without their consent in the form of a tetnus shot to help decrease the population. But the populus are still breeding and we cannot keep up with demand, there are no jobs because machines, made human labour slow in comparison useless infact, besides they are too emotional, and not ruthless enough.
What are we going to do with all these useless human beings? Sitting them in front of TVs to occupy them and filming everything they do to keep them in line is hard on resources. They are escaping the reality of their lives on the internet and gaming. Giving them medicine which increases life span and so population growth doesn't make any sense when we don't need as many of them anymore, and there are too many as it is?
Did we ever stop and ask why we should, instead of going forward with the how?
Absolutely! Because the Bible teaches that God created humans for a purpose beyond simply breeding. The last part of Revelation 4:11 said: “Because of your will they [all created things] existed and were created.” We did not will ourselves into existence. We exist because of God’s will.
For this reason, life lived solely for self-interest is empty and meaningless. To find inner peace, joy, satisfaction, and fulfillment, we need to learn what God’s will is and then bring our life into harmony with it. Only then will we find the purpose of our creation and existence. (Psalm 40:8)
It is a matter of serious topic. Do you know how you are created? Lol. Of course I don' t know.
