  • Who is God?
  • What does He want from me?
  • If God is good and loving, why is there suffering in the world?




If you have ever asked these kinds of questions, the answers may be nearer than you think. You are unique on planet Earth for your ability to even ask. No animal has ever asked or imagined these things - but you can. Why?

Like a drowning man's passion for air, every human being has a longing for purpose, and the ability to believe. The reason we have these desires is because there is a purpose for us to fulfill, and a God to believe in. Just like fish were made for the sea, so man is made for God.

A drowning man can fill his lungs with water, and every human being can fill their soul with something other than the love of God. The problem is that there is no substitute for air, and there is no substitute for God. Anything else brings death.

So how did we get in this place? In the beginning God created a man and a woman, Adam and Eve. Adam and Eve disobeyed the only commandment that God gave them, which came with consequences. Since then, all the children of this couple have inherited the curse of death and suffering.

God could have completely abandoned or obliterated the human race, but he instead chose to redeem his children (that is what he calls us) by sending his Son, Jesus Christ, to die for our sins that we might live. Those who believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, and keep his Word, have eternal life.
