Our purpose of being created

If you're not a religious person, ponder those words below. If you're a religious person, still ponder it and it can a good reminder and a motivation for you.

Have you ever sat down and wondered why the world is the way it is?

Why do trees look the way they do?

Why do trees produce fruit while we don't? Instead, we have babies, who grow up to be adults, and if planted, those fruits grow into trees. 

Why do we all have our noses where they are instead of at our toes or our chests? 

Why are our mouths not on our backs and legs and are at our fronts? 

Why are there hairs on our brow? Those eye-protecting browses stop sweats which contain salt, which is harmful to our eyes from getting into our eyes. 

Why is it that our system operates the way it does? So, when we ingest toxic substances, our immune system goes to work, and if it can't fight them off, it sends a warning signal to the rest of the body, allowing you to treat yourself before things get worse. 

When you're hurt, why do your blood cells try to clot your wounds so you can heal faster? 



It's because there's a designer, a clever designer, at work. It has to be. Perfection cannot be achieved through randomness. We should have seen individuals giving birth to trees or goats if we were the consequence of a random cause. Humans being born from goats, and humans emerging from trees or being a part tree, part human should all be normal happening. But it's not.
In our world, there should be a great deal of inconsistency. Things should be happening that we can't comprehend or foresee. Unlike we can all predict that the sun will shine tomorrow since we all understand the sun. 

The Creator is the name given to the designer who created these and everything else. In general, religionists refer to Him as God
All of these things, including humans, were not created for no reason by this creator. Everything was made with a purpose in mind. When we see a new product being developed, for example, we immediately recognize that there must be a rationale, purpose for its development. Nobody invents something for no reason, right? Our Creator, like everyone else, created us and everything else for a reason. 

And how can we know what we were created for, what's our purpose? It's a through the Creator Himself. For example, suppose you go out one day and come upon a new product. Isn't it better to get the answer from the inventor if you want to know what the product's purpose is? Because he'll have a better understanding of what it's for and what it can do. However, there are situations when we are unable to meet those inventors.


So, what are our options?

We read the instruction booklet, which explains what the product is for and how to use it. Similarly, because we cannot see or meet our Creator, He has sent down manuals so that we can understand why we were created. What is our mission on this planet? How should we live our lives to the fullest, in a better way? And what exactly are those instruction manuals? His instruction manuals are the scriptures, holy books, and prophets.

Don't you think He would include a sign or signs so we could be sure those guides were actually from him? Wouldn't you expect an inventor to include a sign, such as a logo or something else if he creates a product and writes a manual so that you know it's actually from him? 

Similarly, our Creator has provided signs along with his manuals so that we can recognize them as His. And what exactly are they? These are the miracles and prophesies that certain prophets performed throughout their time.

According to Christians and Muslims, Moses, or Musa (as), was given the miracle of the stick that turned into a serpent, as well as a way through the ocean and other things. And according to Christians and Muslims, Jesus, or Isa (as), changed water into wine, healed the sick, raised the dead, and so on.

According to Muslims, Muhammad (saw) split the moon in two and was handed the Qur'an as a miracle, among other things. As well as all the other prophets sent by the Creator. They arrived with prophecies to go along with the miracles. In fact, you can tell the difference between a genuine and a fraudulent prophet by looking at which prophet made a prophecy that didn't come true. That prophet is false.

According to their various followers, most of the prophecies of all of the prophets mentioned above have come to pass, with the exception of a few that are still on the way and showing positive signs of coming to pass. 


According to Christians, Jesus predicted that one of his followers would betray him and another would deny him during his earthly ministry. Both of these things are said to have happened. According to Christians who lived during Moses' time on earth, God told him that there would be another prophet like him. A prophecy that is said to have been fulfilled. And then there's Muhammad (saw), who, according to Muslims, foresaw the use of automobiles in Saudi Arabia. A prophecy that has clearly come true. 

All of the prophets named, as well as those who were not, came to perform one thing. To communicate the Creator's (God's) message to the people. God is to be worshipped, loved, and obeyed. And it is from these messages that we should live our lives in order to be righteous. Moses brought the 10 commandments from God to the Jews, Jesus taught the Christians to love their neighbor as themselves, and Muhammad (saw) brought the Qur'an and the Sunnah to the Muslims.


Following those manuals will bring us to, or close to, righteousness in the eyes of our Creator, and we will have proved our love for Him by obeying and worshipping Him, and He will grant us what He promised us in all of those manuals based on our deeds and His mercy. 


Religion's Global Importance 

Please read "The Existence of the Creator and the Universe," my other post, if you don't believe in God. 
God is real, and He longs for us to worship Him. 

He gave us the moral norms and rules that our common sense can accept. How do folks who don't believe in God decide what is and isn't ethically acceptable? Because our beliefs will be subjective if we believe we were created out of blind matter by chance. That is, everyone will be free to follow their own morals and beliefs.

For example,

you cannot claim that this person did something wrong or that this person did something barbarous, since everyone has their own morals. To put it another way, you can't state that Hitler's actions (killing millions of Jews) were incorrect. 

It is because of such evil that the Creator created laws for us to observe. which are objective rather than subjective. Regardless of who you are, what you want, or what you believe should be, there are laws that you must follow. Because there would be no morals, kindness, or love if the entire world were atheist, the world would be a miserable place to live. The law of survival of the fittest will apply. Many people will perish.

Regardless of whether you believe it or not, the truth is that the Creator exists, and whether you believe it or not makes no difference. 
Along with the promise of bliss, the Creator's prophets brought from the Creator, manuals that included the promise of retribution. 

Consider everything that's been said and everything that is going on around you. How amazing it is that the Creator constructed everything so perfectly. Then consider this: if someone gave you two million dollars, wouldn't you thank him and remember him? And consider what you would do if that person offered you that money in exchange for your eyes.

Do you agree with me?

Your answer will, of course, be no. So, why don't you thank and remember the Creator who freely gave you those eyes? Also, if you had to buy a gift for your mother, would you get one that you like or one that your mother likes? Of course, you'd get a present your mother loves. So you must worship the Creator in the way he loves, in the way he has commanded, not in the way you want or think it should be. Keep an open mind and research all of the religions around to see which one corresponds the most to sound reasoning, and be objective and truthful. Because God is all-knowing, His religion will undoubtedly be sound reasoning. 

Whether you believe in God or not, it is imperative that you use your intellect. God has given you the ability to use your intellect and conscience. If you use it objectively, you will be able to determine which of all the religions is genuinely from God.

They claim there are many ways to paradise, but only one road goes to God. Because all of the religions that exist today are not the same, it is only logical to believe that only one leads to God. I wish for everyone's well-being and hopefully, you all will find the right road to God.
