Do people only do good to get to a life after death?

There is no point, there never was...

You must decide for yourself what you want to do, what makes you happy... If you feel happy and think it's the point of life to follow the words of some charismatic leader who promises of an eternal afterlife, then I guess just do it... But always remember that you can move on, and do things more worthwhile for yourself and others.

Don't thank God or other deities for the things in your life, thank the people who made it happen, thank the people who deserve it.

There never was an afterlife for me... That's why life is very valuable in my eyes.



But I have to thank God...
You say thank the people who deserve the thanks. There are certain special things in my life that no person has given me but God has. For example healing and comfort in times of abandonment when no one else has been there for me.

Most of the things that I have received from people are abuses and pain. Do I thank them for those too?

I do thank people for things but the one who deserves the most thanks in everything good is God. I believe that there is a piece of Him in every person and that he gently presses upon people's hearts to do what you would call good things. God is love and the love within us ultimately stems from Him.

Without God my life is not worthwhile at all. All I have done in the past is hurt people and hurt myself. As does everyone. All He asks is that we change our lives to be more compassionate and sensitive to the world around us. It's a hard task when you recognize the wicked motivations behind the words and actions that come from people, but you always have to try. We can only control the choices that we make; no one else's. This is why we each have such an individual responsibility.

In my opinion, life only has real meaning and is more valuable when you believe and trust in God. It is then when you realize that life is not all about you and the things that you desire. Everyone has a mission that they have to complete with the time that they're given. Everyone has gifts that they use to help others and change the world.

I'm neither gullable nor an easy target. I don't melt or subordinate myself because of charisma. It took a long journey for me to throw away my pain and foolish pride and believe in the truth that He spoke to me.

It was never rules and traditions that kept me at His side. It's the relationship that I've developed with God that means the most.

Life is rich with God and empty without.

And that's how I feel.

i just live how i want to live. learning through life and by just observing learning right and wrong and being positive. don't do good just for your own benefit, but to spread the love. just like that kid in the movie "pay it forward".

Agreed. I mean why do bad things, especially for no reason? For a cheap thrill? Grow up and learn some fucking respect. A LOT of people are way too damn egotistical, self centered, and selfish to notice the damage they are doing to others and even their own lives. It's such a shame...

That person isn't exactly being a pessimist NaruHina, he/she is being more like something called a "realist". I actually agree too.
