What’s life all about?

Every person born into this world; wonders what life is all about. Surely, the theory/prophets (scientists) of today; are wrong - how can humans be created out of a single, celestial explosion (The big bang theory?) Anyone who believes this man-made idea is an unbeliever. Unbelievers must have some theory to spout, and this is their intelligent (?) idea -"we simply were born out of nothing." God says that he created us so who you "gonna" believe, God or man? We come to this world as helpless babies, dependent upon family and friends to care for us. Any wisdom we obtain; comes from what others teach us; we brought no intellect to this planet; neither do we possess any memories of where we came from. Those who care for our early needs teach and train us in the manner that they were raised. Until we can reason on our own, we reflect the thinking of our teacher/mentor/families. I thank God my family knew him and taught me that truth. There is a New Testament story about a rich man who came to Jesus by night. He could not chance a day meeting; others might see him-at this point he was only a secret believer.
