I find there is the Good News being globally proclaimed today as mentioned at Matthew 24:14; Acts 1:8.
The international Good News about God's Kingdom government of Daniel 2:44 being the solution to mankind's problems.
The whole purpose of why we are here is found at Ephesians 1:12 to be to the praise of God's glory....

The chief end of man is to glorify god and fully enjoy Him forever.

How about looking into God's Word to find out what Jesus had to say on the subject?

Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?

Jesus replied: Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself. All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.


Jesus as quoted by Matthew 22:36-40

that's me, hollering from the choir loft...

I think it’s hilarious you guys confuse jesus and god as being two different beings with two different free will thoughts.

You’re a hoot from the loft

It is indeed wonderful news for selfish, lazy Christians. That's why they're so quick to adopt it. Just sin your fool head off cuz Jesus did all the heavy lifting.
