There is much evidence that we have lived before, and our purpose is to progress to a more advanced state. The evidence also indicates that a ‘God’ must exist to cause such re-births – on other continents and hundreds of years later. The consequences of bad deeds done in previous lives explains present suffering, which seems otherwise unjust. Future lives lie before us and from available evidence these will be strongly influenced by our actions in our present life.

What Is My Purpose in Life-What Is My Goal in Life
Author: Wallace L. Brown
Category: Christian life
OUT OF GAS? NEVER WITH JESUS examines the simplicity anyone can discover in having a very personal relationship with God. The book closely explores this relationship from a Christian perspective correlating the Israelite journey from Egypt to Canaan through the wilderness. The journey was only to take 11 days; yet, it took 40 years. Specific examples I state show very close similarities with Christian behavior today. These include constant bickering and complaining, jealousy, gossiping, slandering, and judging. These behaviors cost the Israelites 40 years in the wilderness when God desired the opposite to draw them into His rest and love where His intimate love overwhelms each one. Today, too often Christians make a relationship with God a religion with lists of rules and regulations. God calls each person to rest in His unconditional love and acceptance. God loves each person just as he is. He only desires to restore that intimate love relationship that was lost when Adam and Eve first sinned. Therefore, the majority of Christians only burn out, run out of gas in their Christian walk with God. They become miserable, angry, and judgmental especially to non-Christians. They clearly become hypocrites. (I know this from personal experience, living that way for 17 years.) One will clearly see the excellent comparisons to the Israelite journey through the wilderness to the behavior of many Christians today. However, I do include the solution. A true, deep, pure, and intimate love relationship with God is not only possible, but is God's deepest desire.

Everyday Questions and the Christian Life
Author: Ronald F. Thiemann,William C. Placher
Publisher: Bloomsbury Publishing USA
A one-of-a-kind book in which several outstanding theologians use their expertise to examine everyday questions that Christians ask. Christians do not just believe; they think about what they believe. Moreover, they are not content with simple answers to their questions about life and meaning. The contributors to this volume therefore provide thoughtful responses to the following questions: Why are we here? Why are we so indifferent about our spiritual lives? Why do the innocent suffer? Is Jesus Christ the only way to salvation? Are there angels? Why go to church? The unity of the church--why care? What shall parents teach their children? What does my faith have to do with my job? Must Christians believe in hell? Is there life after death? The eleven contributors to this volume--which include, in addition to the editors--Kathryn Tanner, David Dawson, Thomas F. Tracy, J.A. DiNoia, Bruce D. Marshall, James J. Buckley, Michael Root, William Werpehowski, and George Hunsinger) are friends who attended the same graduate school (Yale) and had many of the same teachers. For twenty years they have been meeting once a year to talk about their work, their lives, and their thinking about the Christian faith. In this book they share with fellow Christians and curious bystanders the intellectual and spiritual wealth and excitement and complexity they have found in that faith. Ronald F. Thiemann is John Lord O'Brian Professor of Theology and Dean of Harvard Divinity School. William C. Placher is Professor of Contemporary Theology and Philosophy of Religion at Wabash College, Crawfordsville, IN.

An Analytical Approach to Issues of Our Faith in a Search for the Real Jesus and for Why We Are Here
Author: Calvin L. Keeler, Sr.
The question of the meaning of life challenges each one of us, even as our schools attempt to channel us in our teen years into a choice for a vocation. Attempting to answer this question, this book first explores science and philosophy, then examines faith and the scriptures, and finally searches for the real historical Jesus to develop an answer. This book delves right into the major issues of the nature of the world, the nature of God, and a search for Jesus without adherence to the previously established theological principles of the Christian church. A critical and analytical approach has been used in this work, as it begins with some of the most basic questions about life and our existence on this planet, starting with an examination of the physical world using both traditional physics and advanced theoretical physics concepts to explain the nature of the universe. The first chapter includes a discussion of the nature of God and proposes some initial responses to the primary question posed about the reason for our existence. In the second chapter a substantive definition of faith is proposed. This chapter also recommends applying reason and critical analysis to an understanding of the scriptures. The third chapter takes a rigorous intellectual view of the gospels to explain the nature of Jesus, to identify his uniqueness, and to finalize the answer to the question previously proposed. No attempt has been made to write a textbook or to cover all of the theological topics in this field.

Wie Top-Firmen und Führungskräfte zum Erfolg inspirieren
Author: Simon Sinek
Publisher: Redline Wirtschaft
Category: Business & Economics
Am Beginn einer jeden Erfolgsgeschichte steht eine einfache Frage: Warum? Warum sind manche Organisationen profitabler als andere? Warum werden einige Führungskräfte von ihren Mitarbeitern mehr geschätzt und andere weniger? Warum sind manche Menschen in der Lage, immer und immer wieder erfolgreich zu sein? In seinem Bestseller, der nun zum ersten Mal in deutscher Sprache erscheint, zeigt Simon Sinek, dass erfolgreiche Persönlichkeiten wie Martin Luther King Jr. oder Steve Jobs alle nach demselben, natürlichen Muster dachten, handelten und kommunizierten. Am Anfang ihres Wirkens stand immer die Frage nach dem Warum. Mit diesem Ansatz schafften sie es, bedeutende Dinge zu vollbringen und darüber hinaus ihre Mitstreiter zu inspirieren. Sich an diesen Vorbildern orientierend, gibt Sinek in seinem Ratgeber nun Führungskräften, Unternehmen, aber auch Privatpersonen einen Leitfaden an die Hand, der zum endgültigen Erfolg verhilft. Dabei erklärt er das so erfolgreiche Muster, welches dem goldenen Schnitt ähnlich ist, und auf den drei elementaren Fragen basiert: Warum? Wie? Was? Dadurch eröffnen sich dem Leser völlig neue Möglichkeiten und er wird lernen, dass die Motivierung von Mitarbeitern viel zielführender ist als ihre Manipulation! Und dies geht ganz einfach: einfach »Warum?« fragen.

It includes: (1) proofs that God exists; (2) proofs that the Bible is all true; (3) instructions on how to do a Bible study; (4) instructions for how to tangibly see the Holy Spirit within; (5) an explanation of God's project with humanity; (6) an explanation of God's history with that project; (7) how we individually fit into that project; (8) the conditions for having a good (or bad) eternity; (9) how we were designed to operate every thought and action so as to produce the best possible experience for us in life; and (10) how to avoid the pitfalls and bad experiences in life. Some reviews and quotes for Why Are We Here include: "This is a very important book that is greatly needed at this time. I agree that the Bible should be the ultimate resource for life and living and that the world could greatly benefit from being logically and scientifically shown that this is true," by Mark Victor Hansen, Co-author, New York Times #1 Best-Selling "Chicken Soup For The Soul" series; and "Dennis Marcellino has the answer. Actually, with an education that ranges from science and engineering to theology and psychology, Marcellino has many answers. But in his new book, Why Are We Here?, he chooses to answer the one question that has puzzled intellectuals for centuries," by Laura Gunderson, Clackamas Review
Why Are We Here? New Answers from the Frontiers of Science
Author: Ervin Laszlo
Publisher: Simon and Schuster
Category: Body, Mind & Spirit
From the cutting edge of science and living spirituality: a guide to understanding our identity and purpose in the world • Outlines the new understanding of matter and mind coming to light at the cutting edge of physics and consciousness research • Explains how we can evolve consciously, become connected with each other, and flourish on this planet • Includes contributions from Maria Sagi, Kingsley L. Dennis, Emanuel Kuntzelman, Dawna Jones, Shamik Desai, Garry Jacobs, and John R. Audette For the outdated mainstream paradigm the world is a giant mechanism functioning in accordance with known and knowable laws and regularities. The new paradigm emerging in science offers a different concept: The world is an interconnected, coherent whole, and it is informed by a cosmic intelligence. This is not a finite, mechanistic-material world. It is a consciousness-infused whole-system world. We are conscious beings who emerge and co-evolve as complex, cosmic-intelligence in-formed vibrations in the Akashic Field of the universe. Ervin Laszlo and his collaborators from the forefront of science, cosmology, and spirituality show how the re-discovery of who we are and why we are here integrates seamlessly with the wisdom traditions as well as with the new emerging worldview in the sciences, revealing a way forward for humanity on this planet. They explain how we have reached a point of critical incoherence and tell us that to save ourselves, our environment, and society, we need a critical mass of people to consciously evolve a new thinking. Offering a guidepost to orient this evolution, Laszlo examines the nature of consciousness in the universe, showing how our bodies and minds act as transmitters of consciousness from the intelligence of the cosmos and how understanding science’s new concept of the world enables us to re-discover our identity and our purpose in our world. With bold vision and forward thinking, Laszlo and his contributors Maria Sagi, Kingsley L. Dennis, Emanuel Kuntzelman, Dawna Jones, Shamik Desai, Garry Jacobs, and John R. Audette outline the new idea of the world and of ourselves in the world. They help us discover how we can overcome these divisive times and blossom into a new era of peace, coherence, connection, and global wellbeing.
