We just have this weird tendency to disregard it, especially when it conflicts with our desires for pleasure or personal gain. And who am I to impose my view of right or wrong on this poor burglar? Of course. Turn the situation around on yourself.
Jesus said it best. No, when you turn it on yourself, you realize that even inside ourselves God has placed a moral conscience and that conscience tells us when we do right and when we do wrong. And when we violate our conscience, we need forgiveness.
What on earth am I here for? Well, you need to understand God to answer that question. God is love. You were made to be loved by God and to bring Him pleasure. Love God with all your heart and soul and mind and strength. God wants you to get to know Him and love Him back. He put you here to know Him and love Him. Well the truth is, God created you for five purposes. You see, you were made by God and you were made for God.
When you come to this question, you only have three options. First is what I call the mystical approach , and that is to look within.
You find this in a lot of talk shows, a lot of new age books, and a lot of seminars. The second way you can try to discover your purpose is called the intellectual or philosophical approach. Where did I come from? Where am I going? And some of them admitted they guessed. And it is only as you get to know God you will discover His five purposes for your life.
We came from the goo through the zoo to you over billions of years. It creates a lot of our sociological problems and a lot of our self-esteem issues. But the truth is, you are not an accident.
2. What do you need to know?
You were created by a loving God who loves you and designed you with intricate detail in your life. But because there is a God, and He had a specific purpose in mind when He created you, you do matter. You matter because God created you. Bring me my credentials.

Questions I Would Like to Ask God
And I believe Jesus knows more about it than either you or I. But second, I believe in hell because logic and fairness demand it. Think of all the atrocities and evil that have been done throughout history by evildoers in this world.

How Science Works Science works fundamentally by setting up a hypothesis and asking if there is observable, verifiable, repeatable evidence that the hypothesis must be wrong.

For instance: When the Russians first put an astronaut into space, they announced that they had not found God and that this was proof that God did not exist. Some people reason that the universe exists at all is evidence that there must be a First Cause, which could be called God.
But other people reason that perhaps the universe has always existed and there is no proof that there is a First Cause at all. Some people believe in God because of some good fortune like being rescued in an earthquake or hurricane or some other disaster. Some people have been converted after being cured of a grave illness or observing something that seems to be miraculous.
But other people look at these as natural phenomenon rather than acts of God. Whatever word one may use, the question of God is not a question science can answer for us. What do you think?
