purpose of life

A Muslim, Bahai, Jew, Christian, and an atheist meet to discuss the purpose and meaning of life.  Each is given two minutes.  All but the atheist protest this is not enough time but rules are rules.

The Muslim starts off, and at the end of his time summarizes "the purpose of life is to discover our creator." The Bahai finishes with his summary "the purpose of life is to be of service to humanity."  The Jew summarizes with "the purpose of life is to prepare for the coming of the Messiah."  And the Christian summarizes with "the purpose of life is to be like Jesus."  The atheist just says "accidit stercore."

Huh, weird.  You get a bunch of different, contradictory answers on the meaning of life - with no way to tell which are right or wrong - and you think that's an argument that there's obviously a right answer.  Bizarre.

I think he was trying to make a small joke, without much success I must add.

To crush your enemies. See them driven before you. And to hear the lamentations of their women.

I think that EF means well and his heart is in the right place, but I gotta agree with you that he does list contradictory worldviews which, for the most part, are at complete odds with one another.

First he mentions the muslims. I have studied Islam from all of Islam's most sacred and reputable sources. I did not study Islam from Christian sources, even though I myself am a Christian. The idea is to learn what each worldview teaches from their sources and not outside sources. Now Islam does not share the same God nor the same purpose of life as Jews or Christians do. The ultimate purpose of Islam is to exterminate all disbelievers until there are no more disbelievers left; and then, after the world is conquered for Allah: they are to destroy all life on earth, leaving it bare and incapable of sustaining life.
Jews are divided up into three major sects. But there is the orthodox sect that still awaits for the Messiah. The purpose of Judaism is the keep the law of God and obey His Commandment.
Christians, who accepted Jesus as the Messiah (the Christ), await for Jesus Himself to return with the armies of Heaven for the great Day of Judgement when Jesus resurrects the faithful and then restores the earth to its original beauty. Until then we are to spread the Gospel to the world so that many will be saved. We life a godly, sober and righteous life.

EF already knows the atheist position of the matter but he makes the mistake of assuming Islam is a Divine religion when its really the prophesied Antichrist and nothing fits every prophecy of the Bible concerning the Antichrist better than Islam. But Islam is not the only mover and shaker of the Antichrist kingdom. Anyone and any worldview who joins with them will also be included as being antichrists serving the Antichrist. The evidence of Islam being the power of the Antichrist is absolutely overwhelming.

I'm Jewish, and that is NOT what we are taught is the purpose of life. To Jews, the purpose is living right here, right now. We do not believe in an afterlife, so you need to be the absolute best person you can with the time you have. And you need to be thankful for the opportunity to have it.

Where did you get that bogus info about us?
