Do you know -
1) — that the Bible teaches we do NOT go to heaven or hell immediately after we die, even though most religions and many popular TV programs promote the false belief that we shift into another living dimension at death? The Bible doesn’t teach the immortality of the soul. However, what it does teach about the awesome human potential God has planned for us will excite you!
2) — why and how the decision by Adam and Eve to eat the fruit from the forbidden ‘tree of the knowledge of good and evil’ against God’s express command has affected mankind so negatively down through the ages?
The biblical answers to all these questions can be found in our free booklet Why Were You Born? They will fill you with awe and wonder for our great Creator!
What is your destiny? Why do you exist? Why were you born? Is there a reason, a purpose, for human life?
The spirit in man imparts human intellect to our physical brains. It is what makes people vastly more intelligent than animals.
Through Jesus Christ's sacrifice, human beings can be reconciled to God, and God's forgiveness of their sin will remove the death penalty.
That family relationship of becoming children of God the Father is the heart and core of God's incredible plan for humanity!
The human family was meant as a lesser model or type of this greater spiritual reality, that God is a family.
Scripture makes clear that God actually begets us spiritually in His own image, with the intention that we ultimately become the same kind of beings He and Jesus Christ now are.
While the biblical concept of deification or divinization, exaltation to godhood, is commonly ignored or dismissed in modern Christian teaching, this doctrine was well established among early theologians of mainstream tradition.
Never underestimate the value of your life. You were born to become one of God's divine children. You were born to receive His very nature and character and, eventually, eternal life on His level of existence.
When fully in God's likeness, we will be able to fulfil our awesome responsibility of exercising dominion over, of assisting Him in managing, the vastness of His creation.
