Purpose

A gift from Heaven

How do you make sense of your life? What's it all about?

Does the universe have a purpose?

How do science and religion fit together?

Join us as we look at these questions.

What is God's purpose in creating the world? In creating you?

God's divine love had no other purpose in creating the world than to unite humankind to himself, unite himself to humankind, and live with us in a partnership like this. (Emanuel Swedenborg, True Christianity 786)

"These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be full. This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you." (John 15:11-12)

"For the Son of Man did not come to destroy men's lives but to save them." (Luke 9:56)

Daily Inspiration

"You cannot be spiritually reborn without some knowledge of the new or spiritual life, of the true things that you ought to believe and the good things that you ought to do. You cannot learn these things on your own, because on your own you can comprehend things only through your physical senses. Your physical senses give you information about the material world and yourself, not about heaven and God. Spiritual knowledge comes only from revelation."

New Jerusalem and Its Heavenly Doctrine 177
