FAQ: It's getting clearer! So, what's at
the core? What really is the meaning of life?
The Answer Without God
Through the teaching of evolutionary science, materialism and moral relativism
in our popular media and public school system, we've removed God from the potential answer to this ultimate
question of life. Without God, we lose any transcendent purpose for the universe in which we live. Without
God, we lose any transcendent purpose to give meaning to our individual lives. We are nothing more than bugs

and wrong residing in the character of God Himself. This gives our day-to-day choices significance too. God
gave us the ability to choose whether we live by His moral laws or by whatever values we assign to ourselves
through our own reason. As we find, we are not mere robots placed on this earth by God. Rather, we have
absolute free will to follow what He says or not. We can either recognize God as the Creator of the universe,
or we can deny that He exists. We can choose to live a meaningless life or a life with absolute and eternal
