ETERNAL ISSUE #1
THE PURPOSE OF LIFE
The purpose of life as revealed in the Bible is for each person to prepare to live eternally by responding to the love of God and by cooperating with Him to become Christ-like in character.
The issues and trials of life are used by God as tools to accomplish the purpose of life. Trials are God's workmen to remove the impurities, infirmities, and roughness from our characters, fitting us for the society of pure, heavenly angels in glory.
God's desire is for everyone to have eternal life but the gift of immortality will only be given to those who have beautiful Christ-like characters.
A Christ-like character is the only kind of character that can truly enjoy heaven. A Christ-like character is the only kind of character that can be safely trusted in heaven. Death dissolves the body, but it doesn't change the character. The return of Jesus Christ does not change anyone's character; it only seals them forever beyond all change.
