The Purpose of Life

Todd Friel of Wretched Radio does an excellent job on his radio show.  The following is a clip of him witnessing on the campus of Georgia Tech.

purpose

Todd is correct that the purpose of life has to do with God’s attributes. I use this idea to counter the objection that eternal punishment is unjust.  The greatest commandment is the purpose of life: to love God (Matthew 22:37)  Those who love God go to be with Him in heaven (John 14:23).  In addition, since the penalty for sin has been paid by Jesus (1 Peter 2:24), they are not punished themselves (Romans 8:1).  Those who don’t love God must be separated to a place reserved for people who don’t love Him (Revelation 20:15).  In addition, since they did not receive a pardon for their sins, they themselves must pay the penalty (2 Peter 2:4).
