Meaning of Life
What is the meaning of life is a philosophical and spiritual question concerning the significance of living or existence in general. There are so many questions concerning life. People are eager to know what the meaning of life is. How can purpose, fulfilment, and satisfaction in life be found? How can something of lasting significance or important be achieved? People continue to wonder and will not stop wondering why their relationships have fallen apart and why they feel so empty, helpless, and uncomfortable, even though they may have achieved what they set to accomplish.
In our socio-cultural practices, people try very hard to pursue many things to find meaning. Some of these pursuits include sexual intercourse, entertainment, wealth, business success, pleasure, good relationships, recognition or social status, and many others. The unsatisfactory nature of man testifies that while people achieves goals of wealth, sex, entertainment, and pleasure, there will still be a deep void or empty inside, a feeling of emptiness that nothing seemed to fill.
Life can generally be defined as the existence of an individual human being or animal or the condition that distinguishes animals and plants from inorganic matter, including the capacity for growth, reproduction, functional activity, and continual change preceding death.
Man always struggles to understand how he was created and who created him. As a result there have been deep scientific researches, religious beliefs, and many other events all in the name of finding the origin of the existence of life. The issue of man’s origin have also brought about many culture and customs across the universe.
The existence of life has its origin from the sources of how belief is centred. There are so many philosophies and theories or views of the origin of life. To some life is evolutional, whilst others think GOD is responsible for the existence of life. As a result, man’s belief in religion and reverence for what he might think to be GOD. It is in man’s consciousness that there is a god of some kind, but they have no idea of the one true GOD. Those who believe in a religion take the initiative to serve what they think is a god. Everybody believes in something either visible or invisible.
In this chapter philosophies or theories (views) of origin of life existence are discussed and analysed.
Hi brother Maxwell!
Please, Just ask people to read the Holy Bible, and let down their philosophical approach of life!
Indeed, this is what the Bible says in Genesis 2:7: " Then the Lord God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being".
It's also written in John1:4 the following absolute truth: "In Him was life, and that life was the light of men".
I DO NOT SEE A PHILOSOPHICAL MEANING OF LIFE SINCE JESUS-CHRIST IS "THE WAY, THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE" ( John 14:6). Amen!!!!!
