Why Are We Here?
You should have asked that question long before picking up this book! Why are you here? Why do you exist? What is the purpose for your existing?
Many think they are here to enjoy life, to be rich, famous and happy, and they think God is going to see to it that they succeed at that. This is not always the case…
Others quote Prov. 11:30 which states, “he that winneth souls is wise.” This truth has led to a tidal wave of “soul winning” over the past several decades. Yet the question begs to be asked, “is ‘he that winneth souls’ fulfilling his purpose of existence? The soul winner will immediately leap to his own defense with the challenge, “What greater thing could we do than win souls? Soul winning is the main theme of the Bible!” But is it the sole reason we were put here?
If these are not our purpose for existing then what is?
This book is not intended to discourage soul winning. Nor is it intended to teach that Christians are to be poor and unhappy. It is an attempt to show the average Christian that there is a goal in life much greater then self-satisfaction.
These mistaken teachings have hindered to many from ever accomplishing what God put them here for. Read and learn your true purpose for existing!
