“Why was I born?”

This is the “I” generation.

For many people everything revolves around doing what satisfies I, me, my, mine, myself.

But with all the satiation in seeking what is best for self, one huge question remains?

That huge question is: “Why was I born???”

I had to laugh at a cartoon recently of a parent explaining to their little child about how they were born, to which their child responded:

“Yes, yes, I understand how I was born. But, I want to know why?”

Even some entertainers like Cher, Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald have sung the lyrics of Oscar Hammerstein II, in the Jerome Kern song, “Why was I born?”:

“Why was I born? Why am I living? What do I get? What am I giving? What can I hope for? I wish I knew.”

Atheists can’t answer the question, because they think that this life you are living is all that there is. When you die …Kapput!! That’s it, they believe.  There ain’t no more you.

The reality is …before God …you are unique.  No one else has your genes. No one else has your same personality.   What you are and who you are and the character you have developed in overcoming the things you have overcome, is unique before God.  Your life is precious.

Better than that, God has in store for you the most incredible fulfilling purpose you can imagine. It is awesome!

Have you heard the definition of an Athesist?

“An Atheist is a person with no invisible means of support.”  (John Buchan 1875-1940)

Many people never pause to consider their real purpose in life.  Sadly, most assume there is no goal or purpose, beyond this physical life.  They remain ignorant of the reason why they were born and why their lives are sustained by God.   Your ultimate future is awesome!

An Agnostic is someone who knows nothing, who is not sure of what to believe, and is proud of it.

A Gnostic on the other hand, is someone who thinks they know things separately from God, but in so doing, separate themselves from God.

Understanding the answer to life’s biggest question: “Why was I born?” starts with the knowledge, understanding and wisdom that there is a true God.

The fool has said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that does good.” (Psalm 14:1)

Yes, it is true, only a fool says there is no God.

The Apostle Paul explains how we can find the true God, and what happens to people who don’t.

For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:    Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.     Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools.” (Romans 1:20-22)

In actual fact, the answer to another huge question in life, gives us the answer to: “Why was I born?”

That other biggie is: “is God repoducing Himself?”

The exciting answer to that question, is found in your Bible  …and it is not what you have traditionally heard, espoused.

Meantime …keep pumpin’!

Why is Australia on self-destruct?

25/04/2009

by Ken E Murray.

Here is a copy of a letter I have just sent to one of our outspoken politicians …who still has some backbone …in the hope that he might say something more to alert Australians, in an area of where this Government has us on a self-destruct course.

“Why doesn’t this Australian Government invest our taxpayers money into real capital assets …like, buying what the Chinese want.

For example, why don’t we Australian taxpayers buy a controlling number of shares in OZ Minerals and retain the 2nd biggest zinc mine in the world, Century mine? We could buy the whole shebang for around $1.5billion.

We would then be able to preserve Australian jobs and stop the Chinese Government from nationalising some of our richest turf as part of China.

You know Barnaby, once the Chinese are happily owning a critical mass of Australia’s best resources …they will invoke the 457 Visa, using our own laws …and import their own “skilled labour” coolie workforce at vastly reduced wages.

We could also take a share in Rio Tinto in the same way …rather than spraying borrowed Chinese Bond money all over the world and to criminals. druggies, drinkers and poker machine players.

Then when the Economy picks up again we could sell half our share holdings in these companies and get our money back …as well as retaining our other half of shares and collecting dividends for us Taxpayers.

Why isn’t any politician suggesting some sensible investments of our hard won taxpayers money??

Today, our Diggers, on Anzac Day, figuratively must be moaning and groaning in their graves …to see how our beloved Australia is stealthily being invaded and taken over, piece by valuable resource-rich piece …and how cheaply their sacrifice, paid with their own blood, is being sold for less than a bowl of soup!

Why isn’t someone saying these things in Parliament?”

You know, we need a biblical Joseph or Daniel in charge of Australia, now, more than in any time in our history.

Meantime …keep pumpin’!
