To serve, first God and then each other

Yeah no if you are going with that statement then that’s stupid. God is stupid if what you say is true he put us here to do his bidding whilst holding the threat of eternal punishment over us. God is supposed to be good and loving however that is the complete opposite to what he has done. If ppl will go to heaven and hell for eternity then what was the point of god putting us on Earth in the first place? To determine who goes where? Why doesn’t he make everyone good and kind and put them all in heaven in the first place? It makes no sense and in any case many factors can play into who is good and who is bad and there are several ethical dilemmas that can teach us that. For example what if you stole one million dollars from a bank of peoples hard earned money? Most people would see that as wrong and bad right? But what if you gave that money to 100 people living on the streets? And these people were able to live the rest of their lives happily, that would be a good thing right? So who gets to decide if this situation is right or wrong, God? And why him what gives him that right. He obviously doesn’t know right from wrong as he claims he shows unconditional love yet forces ppl into eternal torture. So why should we serve God and why is that the meaning of life? You may say bc he put us here but is it rlly that simple?

Oh give me a break. I think this question was answered definitively in that great theological episode of The Twilight Zone which had the entitlement of To Serve Man.

The meaning of life is to expand, heal, and especially make a difference in our reality. Our lives as animals are timed, we’ll all have a day where we pass away, what is living will one day die. If your talking about a more broad explanation. Then, basically, reproduce and let the human population grow. Really the purpose of life isn’t the correct question, it’s “What are you going to do to change it?”.

Is there objective meaning to life? Or is meaning only subjective?

According to Wikipedia, the meaning of life is the existence of an individual human being or animal.

There is no actual meaning of life. You need to find what makes you happy and what you think the meaning of life is. Everyone’s perspective is different Find what you love and what you’re passionate about but also love and be kind to others.

Although most crave the answer to that question, I feel as if it is truly incapable to define “life” in a general aspect. We are all different. We all have different thoughts, beliefs, and we all analyze everything in different ways. Life itself is very brutal and harsh. Life is relentless and irrelevant to our well being and doesn’t change regardless of our presence. We as the population implement emotion, spiritual affiliation, and sexuality. Life is duration. It is choices. It is reaction. It is instinct. It’s the outcome of your existence on this planet, and what you did to appreciate the opportunity you had to breath each day. It would almost be selfish for me to assume I knew the meaning of your life, let alone try to persuade you that the way I have found and the way I obtain information is remotely relevant to the outcome of this duration of time we are here.. As long as the desire of enlarging your heart and having a receptive soul can give you the passion to never give up on finding your true meaning in this world, I believe nothing else really matters.
