Why am I here? What is life really about? Is there any meaning to life? These questions all have something similar in them, and that is: what is the purpose of man? Most of us do not sit down and think about those kinds of things. I know I never really had, but there obviously is a purpose of man or none of us would be here right now.
Some people think that the purpose of man is to reproduce, then we die. Other people think that purpose of man is survival of the fittest. I, however, have not a clue what I think the purpose of man actually is. I know people just say to serve God. These theories got me thinking though.

We all have to be able to survive on our own, whether it has something to do with health issues, family issues, or even financial issues. No one can avoid issues like these. Everyone faces them, and some
people struggle with them. I do not believe that the strongest man or woman survives. I
think it may be somewhat of a team effort; everyone has to do their part to survive.

If we have sinned, we have to be punished by God somehow. Sometimes that means God will not allow us into Heaven and we will be forced to go to Hell. Other times God will forgive us for our sins and allow us into Heaven.
