What I get from the bible is that this life is a time for us to decide if we want to go Gods way or the highway.
This life is what it is like to live in a sinful fallen world without God directing mankind.
God's final plan is not for life to be savage and for animals to eat each other.
The final plan is to live in peace, love and harmony.
People in this dimension get to choose whether they want to buy into living with God or to go on directing
their own lives apart from God.
This life is the forum of many truths, we all have the save facts. The question is how to do we want to interpet them?
I hope there is something better after this life. But I am not denying myself anything in this life waiting for the next life.
If the atheist are right and this life is all there is, there is nothing I could or would do different.
I only have x amount of dollars and 24 hours in a day.
For the past 2 years I have been retired and I could do anything I want.
The only limit I have had for the past 2 years is the amount of money I could spend.
If I had unlimited money, I would have more guitars, more motorcycles but I wouldn't have had any more time
to play with them.
Plus I like to read which is cheap but time consuming.
I agree religion is a snare and a racket and a waste of time but for all of us here it is part of the journey.
I suspect if a person was filthy rich there would come a time when he would reflect on religious, spiritual matters.
Then he would decide God or no God.
That seems to be the question before us all.
