What is Ultimate Meaning?
Often Christians will point out the lack of meaning in the lives of those without their religion.
Real meaning in life, both now and in eternity, is found in the restoration of the relationship with God that was lost with Adam and Eve’s fall into sin. That relationship with God is only possible through His Son, Jesus Christ (Acts 4:12; John 1:12; 14:6) https://gotquestions.org/meaning-of-life.html
That atheists can have no ultimate meaning without a relationship with God. They might find interesting ways to live their life, but in the end it’s all atoms and meaninglessness.
Christians vary in the way they talk about the meaning that their relationship brings – but whatever the wording Christians use on how to find meaning – what I want to know is how can it ever be ultimate? Can’t we always say “Well what’s the point of that?”
If we are reconciled with God when we die – we’re still just being. Even if we have ultimate pleasure or ultimate happiness – we’re still just existing – God is still just existing – forever. Can’t we always just step back and ask what’s the point in that?
For the unbeliever meaning is always relative – we make our own meaning. Perhaps it’s family, children, sport, money, business – what ever it might be that satisfies our lives. There is no ultimate meaning, it’s always relative to our lives and the human race.
