Why were you born? Is there a reason-a meaning-for your life? Is your existence part of a divine plan?
Was mankind placed on earth by an all-wise Creator as part of a great Purpose-a MASTER PLAN? Knowing the answer is supremely important!
Think for a moment. What could be more important to understand than the purpose for your life?
Atheists refuse to know. Those who do not accept the existence of God certainly cannot accept that He has a Master Plan.
Cynics scoff at the possibility of knowing. They see the confusion and wide disagreement over this question and conclude it can never be answered.
Scientists cannot discover this knowledge through laboratory analysis. Honest astronomers, microbiologists and others acknowledge that God exists, but this alone does not reveal His Purpose for mankind.
Philosophers cannot discern it through meditation or discussion. Divinely revealed answers cannot be obtained by centuries of pondering questions.
Educators cannot teach what they themselves were never taught. Those who merely teach from books written by other men cannot teach what those books do not contain.
Astrologers dazzle with tricks that reveal nothing of value. Do any reasonable people seriously think that such “business people” (those who sell fortunetelling as true understanding), supposedly in contact with the “dead” and the “spirit world” (actually demon spirits), hold the meaning of life?
Theologians offer humanly-devised counterfeits. All religions profess to hold the answers to life’s questions, but their ideas pale as cheap substitutes-empty counterfeits-when the awesome truth of God’s Plan is fully understood.
Most people live their entire lives without a clue as to why they are here. They drift aimlessly, unconcerned about the answers to life’s greatest questions-why life and why death? Others enjoy debating the meaning of life, but never arrive at the correct answers. Many conclude that mankind is little more than a product of evolution-blind, dumb luck!
The world is experiencing an explosion of knowledge amidst ever greater human suffering, unhappiness, discontent and confusion. Why such ever-worsening moral decline alongside astonishing materialistic progress? Weapons of mass destruction now threaten man’s very survival.
Why? And where do we go from here?
The number and severity of problems facing mankind have never been greater-disease, pollution, poverty, ignorance, religious confusion, war, terrorism, crime, violence, hunger, immorality, slavery, oppression, political upheaval and much more-why?
Problems both between and within nations have never brought more division between peoples-why?
With the passing of time come more problems, not less-why?
Also, existing problems grow collectively worse instead of better-why?
Why, at every turn, has man botched, bungled and failed miserably in all efforts to solve his truly great problems?
Individually, people have never seemed more incapable of addressing and overcoming their personal problems. As with the world in general, the passing of time sees individuals and families drowning in a sea of moral decadence and under seemingly insurmountable difficulties. More and more seem completely incapable of managing their lives-why?
Men have created many amazing technological inventions, but they cannot create solutions to their problems. Mankind has harnessed the power of computers to process vast amounts of information, but human beings cannot correctly process their personal problems. Scientists have discovered much about the size, magnificence and precision of the universe, but they cannot discover the way to peace. Astronomers can find majestic, beautiful new galaxies throughout the universe, but they cannot find a way to preserve the beauty and majesty of earth. Scientists have also unleashed the power of the atom, but are powerless to unleash answers to life’s biggest questions. Educators have taught millions how to earn a living, but not how to live-because they themselves do not know how to live.
With the creative genius of man having been used to create weapons of mass destruction, and to bring worse and worse forms of terrorism to a world incapable of successfully combating it, the world is in a terrible mess.
The well-known presidential historian Peggy Noonan summarized mankind’s complex, jumbled history in this way: “In the long ribbon of history, life has been one long stained and tangled mess, full of famine, horror, war and disease. We must have thought we had it better because man had improved. But man doesn’t really ‘improve,’ does he? Man is man. Human nature is human nature; the impulse to destroy coexists with the desire to build and create and make better” (”America’s Age of Uncertainty,” Knight-Ridder, 11/9/2001).
Who could disagree?
So, something is terribly wrong. Man’s extraordinary creative genius has left him incomplete-and it has proven insufficient to solve his problems. The power and creative prowess of his mind has been more channeled to destruction than to productive effort in planning and inventing.
Sir Winston Churchill, the famous Prime Minister of once-Great Britain, proclaimed, “There is a purpose being worked out here below.” He understood that in some fashion a Supreme Being was working out an unseen and little-understood PLAN on earth.
But what is it? Churchill did not know.
Many long to know what God is doing “here below,” but have no idea how to learn what it is. Mankind is ignorant of where to turn. Humanity does not know what the Source of instruction is.
The Creator of human beings sent with them a detailed Instruction Book containing vital information. It explains the nature, design and purpose of His greatest of all creations. It identifies the hidden key-the missing dimension!-to the right and proper use of the mind. It explains the way to peace, happiness, abundance and universal prosperity.
But this greatest Instruction Book is almost universally ignored, misrepresented, misunderstood and rejected. I speak of God’s Word-the HOLY BIBLE! As a result, the problems, troubles and evils of civilization mount. With no solution in sight, conditions only grow worse.
Stop and think! Apply basic logic. Would God create His own marvel of engineering-your mind-and send it without an Instruction Book explaining how to use it?
Of course not! This overlooked and misunderstood Book does exist. We need to examine this “Manual,” which unlocks the mystery of why you exist. It offers hope for you-and solutions to humanity’s problems. It explains why man is incapable of solving his problems without divine intervention from the One who is working out His Purpose. It explains the meaning of life and answers the most important question you face-why do you exist?
The evolutionist cannot answer this question. He believes that life has evolved over millions of years. He believes that his theory explains the presence of millions of plants and animals on earth, with mankind merely being the highest animal in the evolutionary chain. Evolutionists reject special creation by a Supreme Creator and therefore reject the Source of revealed knowledge that He sent with His creation.
Proponents of the evolutionary theory cannot explain man’s awesome potential, or why it has never been realized. Nor can they explain why things keep getting worse-when evolution teaches that mankind is supposedly evolving to a higher order.
The world’s religions have utterly failed in giving meaning-or hope-to life. These religions have almost universally caved to the evolutionists and even professing Christianity has largely rejected the Genesis account of creation as myth and ancient Hebrew “literature.” Yet, while rejecting many Scriptures that explain the purpose of life, they claim to believe a few selected passages and falsely label themselves “Christianity”!
But the Book of books offers hope and meaning. Our booklet Why Do You Exist? makes the truth from this vital Instruction Book plain!
