[For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him] and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.

Colossians 1:16-17

The Christ-Centered Mind:The Ultimate Quest: Part II

2. All “meaning of life” scenarios point to the one true meaning.

3. God’s purpose for creation does not negate human emotion, personality, individuality, freedom, and creativity.
